Unlimited Control

You return home at dusk and the exterior is softly lit. When you open the garage door, the security system shuts off, interior lights brighten and relaxing music plays in the kitchen. After dinner, you turn on a romantic scene of lights and music with your smartphone. Your shades have closed automatically and the temperature is adjusting to evening mode. At bedtime, a tap on your bedside controller activates the security system and soft music plays quietly, set to turn off shortly. This is today’s smart home.

The purpose of home automation is to give you the ability to control every aspect of your home from almost anywhere. From traditional buttons to touchscreen interfaces and smartphone and tablet apps with remote capability, it’s easy to interact with lighting, climate, security, multiroom audio and video, and more. The smart home is truly here. Kids leaving lights on in every room? Turn them off with your smartphone. Sun baking one side of your home? Let your shades track the sun and react accordingly. Home automation saves you money but – more importantly – it saves you time, something we can always use more of.

Lighting Control

The ultimate in home control and automation, done simply. You come home at night, press a button on the wall next to the front door, and lights come on in the hall, kitchen, and den. While relaxing in the living room you notice it’s too bright, so you close the curtains using your tablet. Better yet, your smart home does it for you automatically. If there’s nothing interesting on TV, with one tap on your smartphone, the home theater system turns on, and in moments you’re streaming your favorite movie. Simplify your life with home automation.

Whole Home Audio & Video

ENTERTAINMENT IN EVERY LIVING SPACE

The party is in full swing. Every room in your home fills with stories, laughter, and music. The kitchen has gotten a little loud, so you turn down the volume on the room’s hidden speakers with your phone. You display pictures from vacation on the living room’s flat panel. Outside, the grill is fired up, and music fills the air. The night is young, with whole home audio and video providing entertainment throughout your home.

Instead of being limited to your computer or phone, imagine access to your entire music collection in every room in your home. How about instant access to every movie you own, with the ability to play it back on any TV, in any room, without ever touching a disc? Whole home audio and video is more than just speakers and TVs throughout the house; it’s about seamless and simple access to your entire digital library. It’s about listening to or watching what you want, when you want, where you want, with ease.

Media Rooms

A space to party, relax, and enjoy

Life-size players dominate the big screen, the sound of the stadium filling the room as kickoff nears. Adjacent on a smaller TV, your avatar kicks a field goal, causing groans from your friends. Glasses clink at the bar as drinks are poured. Behind, you hear the break as another round of pool begins. Media rooms are mixed-use spaces offering near theater quality audio and video with a more casual feel. More than a TV room, a media room offers the best of both worlds

Safety & Security

For the ones you love

You awaken: is there something outside? Before your feet hit your slippers, you’ve checked the security system on your iPad. With one touch, you check the camera on the porch. Nothing but the neighbor’s cat, again. Just to be sure, another touch, and every outside light turns on. You return to bed, and sleep soundly. In the morning, the news reports a storm hitting your vacation home. Using your tablet again, you make sure everything there is safe. The cameras show snow, the house temperature is set at 60 degrees, there’s no water in the basement, and everything is secure. Your integrated security system protects your family and your belongings.
