Protect Your Entryways with Access Control
Increased smart security for your whole property is always a good idea. So, what about those entryways around your home that are potential break-in points?
Garages, side doors, outdoor gates, and especially your front door all pose as vulnerable entrancesthat are crucialfor you to keep an eye on – no matter where you are. That’s how access control comes into play.
You can use various entry smart services, such as surveillance cameras, motion sensors, night vision, and two-way communication intercoms that let you know exactly who’s entering and exiting your house and when.
Designated door stations and smart locks let you arm and disarm them from your smart device wherever you are, letting you remotely check who’s at the door and decide who you want to let in. Your system can send instant notifications to your phone letting you know motion sensors have detected movement, or if anyone is trying to get in at any entryway.
Motorized Window Treatments
Seamlessly blend your automated shades into your existing décor and integrate with the rest of your smart home automation system with ease. You won’t see wiring, cabling, or any other equipment. A professional motorized shading installationmeans the product won’t interfere with your room’s design, but will instead enhance it.
You can choose from endless fabric, pattern, and style choices, and different openness factors and options. All it takes is a push of a button to make adjustments, whether you’re lowering or raising up your shades. Set specific scenes for certain occasions, like a movie night in your mediaroomor when you wake up in the morning – and schedule the shades to lower at set times during the day, or when your photosensors detect too much heat coming in.
LED Lighting System
An LED lighting control system can benefit your home in a variety of ways. By using less energy, LEDs can lower your monthly bills andsimultaneouslyreduce your carbon footprint.
While also highlighting your space’s design, tunable white lighting can improve your mood and mental health too. A light’s color temperature has a lot to do with how you feel throughout the day. Bluer tones boost productivity and creativity, while warmer ones get you ready to relax or wind down for the day. This balances out your natural circadian rhythmthattime spent indoors can throw off. You can adjust the lighting color temperature yourself, or have it set to change on its own throughout the day.
Smart Climate Control
Sometimes the last thing missing from the perfect living environment is how comfortable a room feels. Installing a smart thermostat can ensure that your home’s internal temperature stays precisely where you want it at all times.
Sensors can tell when there’s been a degree change or if your shades are raised up, letting in too much heat or cool air. Your smart thermostat can respond accordingly and create the ideal atmosphere in any room, setting the space up for relaxation or any get-together.
