Use A High-End System

If you’re looking to seamlessly connect all your devices, you should use the most trusted names in the business. Smart home brands like Savant, Control4, and Crestron provide whole-home control of all your electronics across thousands of manufacturers and let you create unique smart scenes to relive anytime.  

Incorporate Voice Control

What if you leveraged your voice assistant to do more than tell you the weather or play songs? In an automated home, you can use your voice to do anything from turning on landscape lights to scheduling thermostats to set to 68 degrees at 5 p.m.

Install Custom Wall Keypads

Apps and voice control don’t have to be the only way you manage your smart home. Smart wall keypads can replace standard light switches with customized buttons like ‘Morning,’ ‘Night,’ and ‘Goodbye,’ to adjust your lights, shades, thermostats, door locks, and more. Press a ‘Party’ button, and music will start over whole-home speakers while lights shift into nightlife colors. 

Sync Speakers Across the House

When you play music out loud at home, every moment becomes livelier and richer, bringing the family together. But when you’re walking about the house from room to room, the music falls out of earshot. Wireless headphones cut you off from your family, and it’s not good for your ears to listen loudly for hours on end. The solution? Multi-room audio!

A smart home system like Control4, Crestron, or Savant can link a series of speakers together to play the same songs in unison. You’ll simply select the media source from your phone or tablet and press play! If you’re a music lover, don’t forget this life-changing feature in your automated home.

Integrate Comfort Controls

The mood always feels ‘just right’ when your lights, motorized shades, thermostats, and even spa controls are integrated into your smart home. Lights can appear bright and cool-toned during the day, then shift into cozy candlelight hues by evening. Blinds will rise and lower to follow your schedule, so you automatically enjoy the sunshine when you want and privacy when needed.
