Do you feel busy most days? In our plugged-in worlds, many of us are bombarded with work emails and messages all day long. And despite modern life’s comforts, Americans feel busier and more stressed than ever.
After a long day, even the simplest of tasks can feel draining. That’s why many luxury homeowners are adopting home automation systems that simplify home interactions, from lighting to HVAC, automating them to follow your routine.
Even folks looking to ‘unplug’ will be happy to find home automation a hands-off experience. Smart home systems like Control4 and Crestron weave seamlessly into the fabric of our lives and won’t be a distraction from the things that matter most.
Curious how it works? Here’s how home automation can bring simplicity and convenience to your Brownsville, TX, home!
Imagine lights that automatically warm and dim as the sun sets, making your house feel cozy and welcoming. Or your AC turning on and off automatically, knowing when you’re home or away.
Home automation works like auto-magic to follow your family’s daily routines. You won’t have to remember to turn off outdoor lights or lower the shades at night. It can all happen independently with no input required.
When we install smart home systems, we’re also helping homeowners live a more minimalistic lifestyle with less clutter and confusion. A wall of light switches can be replaced by sleek wall keypads with buttons like “Morning,” “Night,” and “Away” that activate several lights simultaneously.
If we’re installing an automation system during a home build, we’ll run data wiring through the walls for a discreet appearance. In retrofits, we employ wireless devices as often as possible. We can also install in-wall and in-ceiling audio speakers that connect to the home system to be heard, not seen. Dislike the appearance of bulky projectors or a powered-off TV? In-ceiling lifts can lower your display with the press of a button.
You don’t need a page of apps to manage smart lights, shades, security, and streaming services. It’s all under the Control4 or Crestron umbrella when you use their smart home controllers.
Everything is easier to manage when accessible from a handheld remote, smartphone app, or wall touch panel. In just a few swipes on a screen, you choose a playlist to play over whole-home speakers, then check your front entrance camera to welcome a guest and remotely unlock the gate. When systems are less fractured, life becomes less stressful.
The impressive thing about home controllers like Control4 and Crestron is that, even if you’re miles away from home, you can access and activate your home’s system in real-time. Communicate with your kids through the two-way intercom feature, or turn on the outdoor lights for them after dark. Want to return to a cool house on a hot summer’s day? Open the app and turn on the AC before you drive home, so it’s ready for your arrival.
DIY smart gadgets only work when you’re on the house Wi-Fi or within Bluetooth’s range. True home automation gives you complete control—wherever you are!
