Smart home automation connects devices throughout your home and allows you to control them via your Wi-Fi network. You can turn lights on or off, lock or unlock doors, set your thermostat, and answer your doorbell whether you are at home or miles away. Smart home automation is achieved by using the best technology and hardware to make these connections. Home automation is not necessarily “smart.” You don’t want a separate application for each device any more than you want a tray full of remotes for your TV. When you decide to turn your home into a smart home you’ll want to work with a qualified and knowledgeable professional that has vast experience creating smart homes to meet the individual needs of each homeowner. We recommend using Control4 smart home technology because Control4 homeowners enjoy personalized smart living experiences perfect for any home—no matter the size or budget, new construction, or decades old.
A smart home automation system also monitors your smoke and CO2 sensors, security systems, video cameras, and motion sensing devices. “Smart” home automation will contact YOU when it detects something you have determined to be important. It is not just a remote control for your garage door.
Smart home automation integrates the myriad of controls and devices through an “electronic funnel” to give you a user-friendly command panel in your phone or tablet. Prices and options vary with smart home automation and when looking for an installer, consider it a specialty rather than a sideline. Your appliances, lights, entertainment and HVAC systems all have specific languages and translating them into a single, smart home automation control center is a complicated task.
