4 Reasons Smart Home Automation is Worth the Investment
Get the Most Out of Your Massachusetts Home With Tailor-Made Audio + Video
When many people think of a smart home, they imagine a space overrun with technology. But your home doesn’t have to look like James Bond’s gadget storehouse for a smart home automation system to be worth the investment. With a custom Control 4 automation system designed by professionals like us, you take center stage, not the technology. You’re in control with easy, intuitive access to your home’s lighting, entertainment and security from a central user interface on your smartphone, tablet or touchpad.
Make Your Home More Beautiful
Enjoy your favorite Hi-Fi music and HD movies without having to deal with obtrusive technology. Hide all your entertainment sources (including stereos, satellite dishes and Blu-Ray players) in one room and distribute them to different speakers and TVs in your home through your audio video system. With in-wall speakers and hidden televisions, your technology stays out of view unless you’re using it, allowing you to fully showcase your personal interior design style.
Run an energy-efficient home
As we discussed in our previous blog 10 Ways to Make Your Home Green, home automation can help you cut down on energy costs. Bringing all your subsystems together allows you to better monitor and control your energy usage. You can follow a budget by adjusting the lights, shades and thermostat with custom controls that automate the technology at specific times. Or install motion sensors that link to your lighting to ensure everything is turned off in unoccupied rooms. Your shades can also communicate with your thermostat to help regulate the temperature in your home, with shades closing when it gets too hot during the day.
Increase your home security
Few aspects of your home rely on communication as much as your security system. This is why a smart security system can bring a new sense of comfort and safety to your family. Motion sensors can trigger lights and alarms when unwanted activity is detected. Even when you’re away from home, you’re in full control. With a subscription to Control4’s 4Sight App, you can monitor your home from anywhere in the world. Whether you want to lock a specific door or access security footage, you can do it all remotely from your smartphone or tablet.
Streamline your daily routines
A properly installed automation system facilitates your day-to-day living by anticipating your needs with pre-set scenes matching with your daily routines. Imagine that every weekday morning a “Wake Up” scene kicks in at 6:30 a.m. and opens the shades, slowly turns on the lights and begins playing your favorite music to ease you into your day. At night, a “Good Night” scene ensures all lights are turned off, doors locked and shades closed once your family has gone to bed.
