Lighting can affect the mood, energy, temperature and even the colors in a room. With the proper lighting control, all of these attributes can come together to create the room of your dreams.
A System That Works Together
You can dim the lights all you want, but if the window blinds are open, there can still be too much light. With home automation, lights dim, window blinds close and the setting you hoped for is instantly created.
On, Off and So Much More
Typically you have two lighting options: on or off. But with lighting control, the options are nearly endless. And with smartphone and tablet apps, controlling it is easier than ever. Plus, the more you dim, the more energy and money you save.
Create Unique Room Settings
Home automation systems allow you to create multiple settings for any room in your house. In your bedroom, for example, you can create a wake-up and goodnight mode, a mode for romance or even a mode for watching TV.
Push a single button and have your entire home theater system come to life, as blinds close, lights dim, the screen lowers and the movie starts. All you need to do is pop the popcorn.
Your Music, Anywhere in Your House
With multi-room audio, play different songs in each room, or fill the house with a single tune to create that perfect party atmosphere.
Total Control, Inside and Out
Imagine opening your patio doors and having the music from inside also playing on your outdoor speakers. And with concert footage also playing on your all-weather TV, you can entertain outside as easily as you can indoors.
How You Control It Is Up to You
In the past, you were stuck with the remotes that came with your gear. Now, your smartphone, tablet or a dedicated automation remote controls everything. Simple, easy and, yes, fun!
With smartphone and tablet apps, you have control wherever you are. Leave for vacation and forget to turn down the thermostat? No problem. If you have a WiFi signal, you have control. Convenience to the power of 10!
Warm, Cool, Warm. Now That’s Cool!
There’s no one perfect temperature for every time of the day. Program the temp to be a bit cooler at night, warm up in the morning, then down again when you’re at work. Even sync your thermostat with your blinds to save even more energy and money.
Simple Controls, Simple Solutions
Think home automation is too complicated? Our dedicated installers make getting started simple, while our programmers show you how it all works, making sure your home is running smoother, better and more energy efficient than ever.
Light = Heat Sensors = Change
Natural light produces heat in your home. With the wireless Lutron sensor, blinds automatically close when it senses too much light and adjusts your thermostat accordingly. Now you have the perfect indoor temp no matter what’s happening outside.
Ever leave the house and wonder if you’ve left a light on, locked the front door or left the TV on? With home automation, click one button as you’re walking out the door and everything turns off.
Doorbell with Video Camera
Always know who’s at your front door with a doorbell video camera like this one from Control4. When the doorbell rings, it brings up an audio and video feed to your smartphone or tablet. It’s like caller ID for your front door.
See It from Anywhere
Whether on a touch screen in your house or on a smartphone or tablet, the screen becomes a portal into your home. Watch your kids come home from school or just check in when you’re out of town. Simple, convenient, secure.
Say Goodnight, Then Sleep Tight
One click of the “Goodnight” button locks every door, turns every light off, turns on the security system and adjusts the thermostat. And if anything should happen, it turns on every light in the house until you give the “all clear.” Now that’s a good night.
