As each year passes, we become more connected to our things, and our things become more connected to us. It’s easy to become lost, or at least disorientated when dealing with these systems. For many people the idea of home automation is a daunting one and typically stops when they need to connect a smart device to a voice platform but get lost along the way. With a seemingly endless amount of apps, bridges, and compatibility issues, it’s no wonder that things become confusing quickly. With hundreds of manufacturers, & tens of thousands of products, building your solution is no easy task and takes planning, especially when integrating more than one system. What should really be a “plug & play” scenario is really more like building Ikea furniture. Without a manual. In the dark. We can help take the guess work out of these systems and integrate them seamlessly together through a wide array of tools.
Home automation comes down to the idea of “if you can dream it”. Integrations between systems has come a long way and the imagination is a wild thing. Automating previously “dumb” devices can be achieved, usually to the surprise of many. Remember the amazement of your front porch lights turning on with a motion sensor? What if when you came home your front hallways lights would come on, but also trigger your door to unlock, and your local news station to begin transmitting on your kitchen sound system? Wouldn’t it be wild if you could get an alert on your phone when your washing machine was finished it’s cycle – without having to spend $1500 on a brand new “smart” washing machine? Is that the kind of thing that sounds interesting? We should talk.
Through the use of custom tools, open source programs, and enterprise automation platforms, we can build you a fully integrated control tablet. While looking expensive, you’d be shocked at what can be achieved with low cost tablets.
How awesome would it be to have a full-on remote control for your pool house? Ok, you probably don’t have a pool house, but it can definitely be your launchpad for your living room, with one-button to set the scene for watching a movie, daytime, or cozy ambiance for a glass of wine. View live feeds of cameras, the open/close status of a door or window, temperature readings, or even things like weather, traffic, or the latest news in widgets.
What’s more, you have complete control of any Smart Device within your home, right at your fingertips. With the press of a button, you can close a garage door, turn on/off lights, change the mood of a room, or start your sprinkler. We can show you how.
