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 your 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. Control your entire home theater through one simple interface. From your mobile device while at home in Westchester 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.
Audio distribution systems send music to any room in your home. The days of a volume knob on the wall are long gone. Control of your multi room 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 of your New York City home, 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 shades and drapes transform 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. By combining lighting control and motorized window treatments, you create a cost-effective, eco-friendly system for your home.
Custom-tailored lighting control allows you to change the mood of any area of your smart 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.
Distributing video in your home enables a single video source, such as a satellite receiver or Blu-ray player, to be shared across multiple TVs via a video matrix switcher. This significantly reduces the amount of sources needed for every TV in your house and hides all the equipment in a storage closet or basement where it can easily be serviced. Instead of watching your Apple TV only in your family room, you can easily watch it on any TV in your home. By integrating the centralized audio video distribution with a smart home automation system in your New York City home, you can further simplify your control experience.
