Home Automation

We’re on top of the newest technologies to make your home easier to operate.

Home automation, in its early days, included garage door openers and television remotes. Now, you can do so much more with the touch of a button or the help of an app.

Set your thermostat and security system, lock your doors, turn on your lights, draw the blinds—these are just some of the things the latest home automation systems can do.

  1. Smart Home

    You’ve heard of a smart phone—how about a smart home? In a smart home, systems such as lighting, security, temperature and entertainment are all network-connected (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or other) to phones, tablets, computers or other systems, so you can control them from any location. At work? On vacation? A smart home makes it possible to check in and change your settings—anywhere, anytime. 

  2. Security

    Forgot to set your alarm? No problem—just log in to your app and set your security system on the go. Modern security systems can incorporate surveillance cameras, lighting systems and typical alarm functions, all accessible whether you’re at home or on the go.

  3. Thermostats

    With a smart thermostat, you can turn your thermostat down during your work day and up just in time for you to get home. Or, turn your air conditioning on and walk into a cool home, rather than letting the system run all day long. These automated features help you save on your energy bill and offer convenience at the same time. 

  4. Door Locks

    Today’s smart locks do much more than lock and unlock your home. Using an app on your phone, you can certainly lock and unlock your home—but you can also be alerted as to who enters and leaves, or provide access to family or service workers who need to come and go when you’re not home.  

  5. Window Controls

    Automatic window controls let you wake up to the sunrise and close the blinds while away for the day, to help regulate the temperature in your house—or abide by whatever setting you find most useful. With the switch of a remote or the click of an app, automation controls let you raise and lower your blinds to your liking.
