Smart Home Kitchen

Today we are going to look at the smart home kitchen.  Kitchens are the central hub of the home and you can easily change the ambiance of the space for cooking, cleaning, entertaining, doing homework, or reading. Imagine pressing “Prepare” and your favorite music playlist comes on, shades raise to fill the room with sunlight, and counters brighten accordingly. You can keep an eye on the kids from the touch screen or see who’s at the door when the doorbell rings. Simply use the intercom from the same control to tell them dinner is ready instead of shouting. Keep counters clear and focus on the granite countertops, Viking range or Sub-Zero refrigerator, not the wires, speakers or TV.

What is Smart Home Technology?

Systems for music, video, lights, climate and security have become more intelligent enabling you to easily operate them from a smart phone, tablet, keypad, or touch panel. Effortlessly listen to your favorite music from any area of your San Antonio or Austin area home with a single button press or set the lights and shades to create ambiance for entertaining in your open concept kitchen and living area. From your mobile device while at home or away you can view surveillance cameras, unlock the door if your child forgets the key, or set the temperature. Smart home technology adds convenience, comfort, and peace of mind. Solutions  are available for new construction and existing homes.

Smart Lighting Control

Custom-tailored home lighting control allows you to change the mood of any area of your home to suit the occasion. Whether watching TV, dining or entertaining, one press of a button can create the ideal atmosphere you desire. For example, press ‘Goodnight’ to turn all your lights off or ‘Pathway’ to light the way downstairs. Smart lighting control also contributes to a safe environment by linking with the security system to turn all lights on if uninvited activity is detected. Smart lighting control systems save energy. New construction or upgrade – let us create a lighting solution perfect for you and your San Antonio or Austin area home.

Motorized Window Treatments

With motorized window blinds and shades, you can easily adjust the amount of daylight in your home to increase comfort, save energy, and protect interiors. Motorized shading and drapery transforms harsh glare into soft pleasing light, enhances privacy while preserving exterior views, reduces solar heat gain, provides UV protection of expensive furnishings and artwork, and provides the ability to change daytime into nighttime for restful sleep with the simple press of a button.

Surveillance Cameras

With high-definition surveillance cameras in and around your San Antonio or Austin area home, you can monitor activities real-time whether you’re in the house or halfway around the globe. Receive live video streams of entrances to see who’s at the door, interior areas, the perimeter, or even check on the kids playing in the pool all from the same touch screen that controls your home entertainment system or from your smart mobile device. Camera types include pan-tilt-zoom, covert, long-range, nanny cams, and more. Activity is documented on a digital recorder so you can play back at your convenience.

Climate Control / Smart Thermostat

Smart climate control makes it easy for you to set the perfect temperature of your San Antonio or Austin area home regardless of the season or other conditions. Create a comfortable environment by making adjustments from the same touch screen you use to control your lights, shades, and home entertainment system. Monitor and control your smart thermostats from a mobile device if you left your AC blasting when left home or turn up the heat before you return on a cold day. Heating and cooling your home can be expensive and our climate control solutions save you energy with programmed settings and integration to a home automation system.
