Home Automation Overview
With one reliable and user-friendly device, anyone in your family can operate the media, lights, thermostats, shades and more. Learn the basics on Home Automation and how it can be applied in your home.
Smart Home Technology
Systems for music, video, lights, climate and security have become more intelligent enabling you to easily operate them from a smart phone, tablet, keypad, or touch panel. Effortlessly listen to your favorite music from any area of the home with a single button press or set the lights and shades to create ambiance for entertaining in your open concept kitchen and living area. From your mobile device while at home or away you can view surveillance cameras, unlock the door if your child forgets the key, or set the temperature. Smart home technology adds convenience, comfort, and peace of mind. It’s pretty cool too! Solutions available for new construction and existing homes.
Custom-tailored lighting control allows you to change the mood of any area of your East Lansing, Okemos, Williamston, Haslett, Saginaw, Grand Rapids or Michigan home to suit the occasion. Whether watching TV, dining or entertaining, one press of a button can create the ideal atmosphere you desire. For example, press ‘Goodnight’ to turn all your lights off or ‘Pathway’ to light the way downstairs. Smart lighting control also contributes to a safe environment by linking with the security system to turn all lights on if uninvited activity is detected. Lighting control systems save energy. New construction or upgrade - let us create a lighting solution perfect for you.
A dedicated private cinema is a room in which the environment has been precisely designed & engineered to provide maximum movie and music enjoyment. Special acoustic treatments isolate the room from outside noise, and measured speaker placement optimizes the audio. Plush theatre seating is carefully positioned to allow for unobstructed viewing of your video content on the big screen. Room lighting is controlled, as well, in order to ensure the best picture delivery from high-definition, properly calibrated projector.
Audio Distribution systems send music to any room in your home via a central processor or matrix switcher. The days of a volume knob on the wall are long gone. Control of your music is simple and intuitive by means of a touch panel, keypad, handheld RF remote, iPad® or similar Wi-Fi smart device. Whether the speakers are placed in the walls, ceiling, bookshelves, shower or pool, they can be designed to aesthetically blend in to minimize visual impact. In fact, if you can’t get wires to a location, no problem. We have wireless solutions that enable you to enjoy your music from anywhere. You’ll need fewer components since a single music server or a Pandora station from your smart phone can be shared in one, several, or all the rooms of your home.
Motorized Window Treatments
With motorized window treatments you can easily adjust the amount of daylight in your home to increase comfort, save energy, and protect interiors. Motorized shading and drapery transforms harsh glare into soft pleasing light, enhances privacy while preserving exterior views, reduces solar heat gain, provides UV protection of expensive furnishings and artwork, and provides the ability to change daytime into nighttime for restful sleep with the simple press of a button. Clients and designers have hundreds of window treatment fabric and color options available to compliment any décor.
Ditch the pile of remotes on your coffee table and use one smart remote to access all your media, lights, shades, and more. A universal remote makes all your electronics work together so anyone in your family or guests can effortlessly enjoy it. With the press of a single button the TV turns on, the cable box goes to your favorite channel, the surround sound fires up, and the lights dim to a comfortable setting. There’s no need to think, you can simply relax. Easily pause the movie or mute music in a single press without having to unlock your smart device and launch an app.
