Home automation is more than just a series of useful electronic devices, it is a living and breathing system with many different parts. A well designed home system is seamless, each and every device talks to the other devices talks to the others, passing along important and useful information. Our team of expert installers have years of experience programming home automation systems and smart home devices to work together seamlessly. This is typically accomplished through the use of home control "hub" devices, our favorites being URC Control4, and Savant.
Just a few years ago, the idea of speaking out loud to control your home was a concept that could only be found in Sci-Fi, but with the recent advent of smart speakers such as Amazon's Alexa, it has become a reality. The Alexa is a powerful device on it's own, but when specially programmed and integrated with other smart home devices, it's power increases exponentially. You have the ability to do anything, with nothing but your voice. You can control devices individually, or, using pre-programmed "profiles" take care of what were once complicated routines in seconds by speaking aloud! For example, you could say "Alexa, turn off the house" and magically, your shades close, your lights turn off, your doors lock, and power sucking devices like TV's shut down and, if you want, your room speakers start playing white noise or your favorite music for falling asleep.
