Dreaming of automated upgrades for your Okanagan Home?
Advice & tips from Kelowna Electricians at Epic Electric
Imagine you’re sitting in your man cave (or lady lair, for that matter) and you put a DVD in the player – automatically and without using half a dozen remotes, the lights dim to you ideal setting, the blinds or curtains close, and the audio on your stereo system is set to your pre-programmed optimal level. From lighting and supply to the installation of the latest audio visual technology and home automation management systems, more and more people are embracing cutting edge technology in their homes. By linking appliances together through a centralised and easy-to-use system the possibilities and advantages of an advanced luxurious home automation system are vast.
SMART HOME SYSTEMS
There are many benefits to the installation of a home automation system. First off, you can say goodbye to expensive utility bills and stop wondering whether or not you locked the front door. Such a system also saves you running costs by automatically switching off lighting and power when it is not required. These high-tech solutions can help make your home into what is called a ‘smart’ home. A smart home system can control every light and appliance in your home. Smart home systems range in price, with luxury automation companies geared towards homeowners with big budgets who are comfortable spending a lot to automate their homes. These companies offer automation that allows a comfortable and convenient experience, like receding televisions, and multi-coloured room lighting effects.
LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION
With high-end brand Lutron, you can create pre-set lighting scenes and even store personalized settings for multiple lights, allowing you to completely tailor the lighting scheme in any room with the press of a button. Preset lighting has other benefits too – it can be set to increase your space’s security and safety, and the system can also be programmed to transition between scenes at different times of the day.
Sonos transforms the way that you listen to music at home. It works by letting you stream audio from a wide range of devices to speakers around the house, all using your local Wi-Fi network. The system works by attaching a wireless bridge to your Wi-Fi router, meaning you can play music from any device with a Wi-Fi connection, to any Sonos speaker. It exists as a complete system, can include up to 32 components, and can even connect to existing, traditional speakers and sound systems.
For an overall control system, Crestron is compatible with thousands of products from hundreds of manufacturers, and the system’s software is fully customizable from top to bottom, which is one of the reasons it expands beyond residential installations into commercial applications at schools, hotels and businesses. With Crestron you use touch screen controllers to direct various previously separate elements of your home including lighting, heating , ventilation, blinds/curtains and audio/visual.
The latest home automation technology gives you control of your lights, shades, music, temperature, security, with just a tap of a touch screen, phone, or tablet. These technologies can also work in conjunction with your home’s security system. Any homeowner who is trying to create a luxury home experience would benefit from using a home automation company. And always consider such a system before you start building or renovating, because installing high-capacity, high-grade wiring and cable during these phases – while the walls are accessible – always saves you money in the long run.
