The start of 2015 has shown that home automation is a topic that continues to be on everyone’s minds. As a main point of focus at this year’s Consumer Electronics Showcase, it is clear that this will be the year of the smart home. With decades of serving clients in New York City, Long Island and the Hamptons, Audio Den is a premier expert in how to make your home “smart.”
In this blog we discuss not only what it means to automate your home, but a few ways in which you can give it a try.
Smart home automation helps make your day to day life easier. With a Control4 home, smart home automation simply means that everything in your home works together effortlessly. Working with an integrator, you choose the features you would like to control – whether it be in one room or throughout your home – and your automated system is then programmed to do the rest. Features such as climate control, security, motorized window treatments, audio and video distribution and much more can all now be controlled via your phone, tablet, or an in-wall touch panel. An Internet connection and a mobile device is now all you need to unlock your door or turn on your television from anywhere in the world.
Intelligent Lighting Control
Residents in the New York area are often introduced to automation via lighting control, a common smart home feature. Lighting control helps your home make the best use of natural and electric light. With preset scenes the mood of your space can shift to warm and cozy, or cool and calm all with one touch. Automated lighting most often works with a combination of dimmers, motorized shades and motion sensors. Your home thus smartly controls the amount of ambient light you use, saving energy and time all with very little input from the homeowner.
Custom Entertainment Spaces
Smart home automation brings full control of your entertainment space to the palm of your hand. Want to stream your favorite album in the kitchen and then move the party to the living room? Done. With the press of a single button any source is available from any room. The team at Audio Den prides itself in turning any living space into the best hangout spot on the block. We have years of expertise in outfitting every type of space with the best and most appropriate components.
And there is no reason that all of this fun can’t be brought to the outdoors. Now is the time to start planning those upgrades to your suburban backyard or shared rooftop space, opening up the summer to endless entertainment experiences.
