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 touch panel activates the security system and soft music plays quietly, set to turn off shortly. This is today's smart home.

The Purpose

home automation gives 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, iPad, or touch panel. Sun 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.
