Smart Home Lighting Throughout Your Property
You might have lighting fixtures in specific areas of your home or your main rooms – the bedroom, family room, and kitchen. But until you bring intelligent lighting to your entire property, your home won’t be entirely “smart.”
By adding lighting to your whole house and installing landscape lighting outside, you can illuminate every space.
Outdoor lighting in your front yard can add curb appeal to your house and make it safer to walk to up to your door when you get home or when you have guests arrive. Lighting for your backyard and patio can create ambiance and let you host brilliant pool parties and patio soirees.
Bringing lighting to your whole property can actually save you energy as well. By putting motion sensors in each room and hallway, your lights can automatically shut off once they haven’t detected movement for a certain amount of time. At the end of the night, you can also push one button to turn off every light throughout your house.
Whole Home Audio Video
With just a press of a button, you can choose songs from a virtually endless selection of music via streaming services such as Spotify or Pandora. Upload your own media library of albums and vinyl so you can listen to all your music in one place.
Anywhere in your home that you have installed speakers, whether sitting on counters or hidden within the walls, you can hear your favorite tunes, change songs and playlists, and adjust the volume – all with one smart device. The same goes for your TV screens.
Wherever you place 4K screens, whether in your kitchen, bedroom, or even outside, you can pick up right where you left off on your TV series. Pause and play from room to room or select various shows and movies to watch anywhere in the home. Host a movie night under the stars or watch your media during the day as you go about your daily routine. It’s that easy with a whole-home AV system.
An Upgraded Home Network Connection
Your smart technologies and audio video solutions won’t be much use if your home network isn’t up to date. The most important part of a smart home system that runs smoothly is how well each device connects to the others. If these features cannot communicate, your system will not function properly.
That’s why a professional network installation or upgrade is essential. You can guarantee that your network connectivity is top-notch, that your Wi-Fi is strong and reliable, and that your valuables and personal data are protected with built-in firewalls. Stop dealing with buffering or loading symbols as you begin to watch a movie, and stop waiting for your systems to respond to you. A quality home network almost guarantees that your smart home will run without any glitches.
