Home Automation: 3 Smart Home Devices That You Didn't Know You Needed
Life is Better and More Convenient With Smart Home Automation
Smart home technology has evolved so quickly over the past decade you may not have noticed how easy, cheap, and useful getting smart home devices into your home has become. You can add a little bit of luxury into your life with a smart home system and get more done each day with less time.
At Sound Sensations, we offer high-quality installations of smart home devices, home theaters, and home audio. One of our preferred products is Control4, and we’d like to introduce some of the benefits of this whole-home smart solution.
Your smart home audio
With multi-room audio, you can listen to music anywhere throughout your home. The system is so easy to use that even kids can operate it. Your favorite playlist can be blasted throughout the entire house at the same time, or different music can play in each room of your home.
Control4 supports all major online streaming services so you have access to an incredible library of music depending on the services you choose. From Spotify to iHeartRadio, SiriusXM to Amazon Music, it’s all available to you in high-definition sound. You never have to sacrifice sound quality when you choose a smart home audio system from Control4 installed by Sound Sensations.
Your smart home lighting
Lighting is a big part of any cool smart home system. With smart home lighting, lighting becomes an aesthetic that creates the ideal ambiance for your movie watching, dinner party, or date night.
Hands-free illumination means your smart home knows when you’re arriving home and welcomes you home with a lit house. Motion sensors can detect where you are in the house and elegantly engage the lighting where you need it. And with voice-controlled lighting, you can manipulate the lighting of your whole home with just a word.
Depending on your preferences, you can replace your home’s light switches with smart physical switches you can set up how you like via an app. Or, you can do away with the use of physical light switches entirely.
Your smart home theater
Your home theater room is the centerpiece of your smart home experience and the best place to show it all off to friends! A dedicated theater room is a place for fun, excitement, and enjoyment. Besides getting the best in video and audio, there’s much more you can do to make the home theater experience unique.
Smart home theater systems from Control4 interface effortlessly with high-quality projectors, screens, and 5.1-speaker audio systems. The crowning jewel of this system is one remote that simplifies all the controls. Tap “Movie”, and the projector screen will drop, the sound will queue up with your favorite preferences, the lights will dim, and the movie will begin.
Hit “Play” will bring down your overhead lights while hitting “Pause” will bring them back up so you can head to the kitchen or restroom.
The whole-home smart experience
More and more, smart home functionality is about getting a complete experience instead of dealing with multiple different systems. The best smart home systems include home security, intercom anywhere, voice control, and the ability to work with external devices.
Control4 works with thousands of devices from over 300 other brands. Whether you have a Bose, Samsung, LG, Denon, or Dish device, you are likely to be able to integrate it into your smart home instead of replacing it with a new device.
With a whole-home smart experience, you can control anything from the temperature of your rooms to the camera in your doorbell. Increasingly, smart home automation is about getting these systems to work together.
When you’re away from home, you can disable the security system when a service worker arrives and you see them through the camera. When you leave for work, all your lights can switch off and the thermostat switches off your heating or cooling. When movement is detected in your garden, you can have the home’s lights go on and an alert be shown on your family’s phones.
As your smart home and all its devices have access to the internet, there’s a wealth of power and intelligence they can rely upon. Your home automation system knows the weather, the current price of gas, and the timezones members of the family are in. Home automation systems can use all this information to make your life better without you needing to do anything at all after they are installed.
