Home Automation Systems and Devices
Home automation is a field within building automation, specializing in the specific automation requirements of private homes and in the application of automation techniques for the comfort and security of its residents. Although many techniques used in building automation (such as light/appliance and climate control, control of doors and windows/blinds, security and surveillance systems, etc.) are also used in home automation, additional functions in home automation can include the control of multi-room audio and video entertainment systems, automatic plant watering and pet feeding, automatic scenes for dinners and parties, and a more user-friendly control interface. When home automation is installed during construction of a new home, usually control wires are added before the interior walls are installed. These control wires run to a controller, which will then control the environment. These wires and the systems that manage them are called Structured Wiring.
Most integrated systems require that the premises be wired. Wiring being integrated/hidden in walls and ceilings during the building or renovation process, planning and wiring design should be dealt with before works start in order to save time and money.
Comfort, convenience and total control at your fingertips Imagine with one press of the button the room lights dim and the shades drop down creating a theater atmosphere. Then hidden within the room your projector and screen automatically drops down and switches on and right before your eyes, giving you the option to watch a movie on the silver screen…. all this just by a press of a button.
Our team is professionally trained to design home theaters and installation. We insure that your experience is completely user friendly for the entire family. We can design a dedicated home theater room, which would be soundproofed with an anamorphic widescreen and fixed reclining massage chairs giving you the complete theater room experience. The other option is a multifunction room, with cutting edge creative products has made it possible to completely disguise all signs of a home theater by discreetly integrating it into your home’s décor. Speakers can be inconspicuously built right into the walls with either paint or wallpaper applied right over them. A family portrait or favorite painting can be sent into a company to be transferred onto a special canvas that will remotely roll down discreetly hiding large plasma, surrounded by a frame of your choice. Blackouts shades are custom made to your specifications to not only offer you aesthetically pleasing window treatments, but to also serve as part of your theater’s optimal lighting design.
Light Up Your Life
How long does it take you to run around the home shutting off lights currently? How much energy do you waste by leaving unused lights on when you are in other areas of the home? Automated lighting can also save you money. Lights can be programmed to turn off if the room is unoccupied. Elegant scene lighting can transform a room into a work of art. With the push of a single button, every light in the room will be dimmed to the right level. We can help you create scenes that highlight artwork, portraits, reading chairs, the dining table, and other areas. In addition to elegance, automated lighting adds convenience to your life, when you leave the home, every light will automatically be shut off.
Natural lighting, and the way in which you are able to control it, significantly enhances your at-home living experience. You can program window shades in your home to open or close on a predetermined schedule, or upon contact or lack of contact with sunlight. Effortlessly Control Your Home’s Natural Lighting shades/drapery control system can be integrated with other home automation technologies including HVAC, lighting and security. Weekday, weekend and vacation modes can be programmed to provide maximum benefit while adjusting to changes in your schedule and simplifying your daily routine. Some of the benefits of a shades/drapery control system include:
*Protection of furnishings and décor from harmful UV rays *Enhanced security and indoor privacy
*Prevention of unwanted glare and washed-out video images *Reduction of heat gain on warm sunny days
Security and Surveillance
It’s important to keep your home safe, whether you’re home or away. Have your home call your cell phone if there is an alert in case of an intruder or an environmental accident like water flooding your basement. Use the web or phone to unlock the front door for surprise guests, or close the garage door from your office or the airport. Adding a CCTV system can further enhance the security in your home. This can show the pool deck or drive way on any TV in the house or via a web browser on a networked PC. You can check who’s at the door from the living room or the other side of the world! As part of your home automation system we can help you manage how you and your family enter and leave your property. A discreet camera at your door or gate allows you to view visitors, speak with them and grant them access from any position around the home. You can go as far as having the latest in technology that would go as far as biometric finger print access for even greater levels of security.
