Control Everything by Touching a Button 

Smart home automation connects a wide range of technologies to give you seamless, one-touch control. From smart lighting and home theater audio-visual equipment to pool pumps and climate control systems, most technologies are “smart control” accessible when properly integrated.  

Best of all, new smart homes are more streamlined and intuitive than ever. If you feel comfortable using your smartphone, you’ll love the interface used to control your home automation system. Imagine being able to adjust the lights in a room or your entire home by touching a button. If you use a smart home voice assistant, tell your home what to do, and it responds! Just a few of the many systems you can control include:  

  • Indoor Lighting 
  • Landscape Lighting 
  • Motorized Shades 
  • Home Theaters 
  • Media Room Audio 
  • Whole-Home Audio 
  • Outdoor AV 
  • Security Systems 
  • Doors & Locks 
  • Intercoms & Video Doorbells  
  • Pool Lighting & Pumps 
  • Climate Control Systems 
  • Smart Appliances  


Set a Scene for Complete Automation  

It gets even better! Your new home should be a private paradise that “knows” what you want. It’s one thing to be able to adjust your home’s technologies with the touch of a button, but it’s even better when those technologies are automated. For instance, you can program different scenes, such as “Morning,” Dinner,” “Movie Night,” and “Outdoor Party.” When it’s time for the event, instead of adjusting the lights, AV, climate, and motorized shades, one button does it all. Simply press the scene, and everything moves to its pre-programmed position.  

Watching movies in your home theater is more enjoyable than ever, because you won’t need to do a thing except select the movie. The lighting, audio, and ambiance set themselves! You’ll also come home to a more welcoming environment. As you enter the front door, your system can be set to turn on the lights, the whole-home audio system, and even heat the water in your hot tub outside.
