Live a Life of Luxury and Convenience in a Smart Home
Do you remember when we thought technology would make our lives easier? We would have more time for the activities we enjoy, and technology would perform the many mundane tasks that make up our existence. Instead, we flip through our smartphones in search of the different apps that control our numerous smart devices and look for the varying remotes that manage our exponentially-growing electronic devices.
Somewhere along our advancing timeline, the promise of ease turned into irritation and time-consuming affairs. Fortunately, there is a better way. Smart home automation offers the comfort, convenience, and ease of living we’ve been searching for. Now, you no longer need to pull up an app for every device, walk to each window to adjust the shades, or flip the light switch in every room. Now, your smart home does it for you.
Let’s explore the world of home automation and what it offers homeowners in Virginia Beach, VA.
Smart Home Automation Defined
In a smart home, all your smart devices and systems are connected to the home automation platform. At Domes Audio Video Environments, we partner with industry leaders in home automation. Two of these brands, Control4 and Savant, have created user-friendly interfaces that make smart home living easy, enjoyable, and entertaining.
With one tap on a touchscreen, elegant in-wall keypad, or mobile device, you control your lights, shades, climate, entertainment, security, and more. We'll also program your home to respond automatically based on sensors, time of day, and preset schedules.
For example, your shades may rise in the morning, letting in diffuse sunlight. As the temperature increases and direct sunlight brings in the damaging effects of UV rays, the shades lower, protecting your fine art and furnishings. In response, your lights brighten, and the temperature adjusts. Throughout the day, your home continues to create the perfect environment.
The Personalized Approach
A customized smart home does even more. We take the time to learn about your family’s daily activities and lifestyle. Then, we create scenes that transform your home for every mood and event. Do you regularly have friends and family over? Tap the “Entertainment” button, and your indoor and outdoor lights settle into the perfect hues, the gas fireplace ignites, and your “Guests” playlist streams throughout your home and outdoor area via nearly invisible in-ceiling and landscape speakers.
Are you ready to relax after your visit? Tap the “Relaxation” button, and your shades lower, the lights dim to a soft, warm glow, and the music changes to your "Mellow" playlist. When it's time for bed, tap the “Good Night” button on the touchscreen by your bed, and all the lights and AV equipment turn off, the doors lock, and the alarm arms.
