Home automation systems have been growing more popular as homeowners seek to live in a smart home that is customized for their lifestyle and provides an immersive experience. These systems provide automatic control of the devices in your home and can also be controlled remotely. That is why more and more homeowners are going all the way with home automation systems that provide convenience, security, and efficiency. Below are some of the latest trends.
Automated Household Systems
Automated household systems allow you to control all the devices in your home from one remote control interface. Manage and monitor the temperature of your home, set your alarm system, close your garage door, or turn on the oven, all from your mobile device. Many of today’s household appliances can be integrated and controlled with a remote or smart phone device. Home automation systems give you the capability to monitor your home’s vital systems, even when you are away! You can set scenes for routine needs like “Welcome”- which can greet you with bright lighting, open or close the blinds, set specific room temperatures, and even turn on your favorite playlist. Or, if you’re having guests over, you can set the upstairs to a mood and sound that suits the adults, while the kids enjoy their own mood and favorites downstairs. Anything is possible with technology from top brands including Control 4, Sonance, Josh.ai, and more!
Security & Surveillance
Every homeowner wants to ensure the safety of their family and their home. Upscale homes require the latest technology to monitor activity in and around the home. Home automation systems provide security and surveillance systems that protect and monitor your home even when you are away. In addition, many discerning homeowners want an added level of security. We can provide you the ability to shut and lock a door, from your smart phone, even when you’re not at home. Did you forget to close the garage door? No problem! Or perhaps you have a large package you want placed inside the garage – our technology can do that too!
Automated Lighting and Shade Control
Lighting plays a big role in the overall atmosphere and functionality of your home. Automated lighting and shade control offers elements of design to enhance your lifestyle. Electronic shades allow you to take advantage of natural light to increase the efficiency of your home while also providing you with privacy, all at the touch of a button. Set the scene and open or close blinds based on your desired preferences. Best of all, these shades don’t detract from your overall interior design since they are discreetly tucked away until they are needed. Maddox AV can also install retractable screens and shades for your favorite patio, sunroom, or deck. Ask us about our Lutron systems and capabilities!
