Just imagine…when you wake you’ll find the bathroom light on and a path lit to the kitchen. After breakfast, as you leave for the day the lights turn off. Twenty minutes before dusk the landscape lights turn on followed in five minutes by the front door pendant ant the coach lights. In the house, forty five minutes before dusk, lights slowly start to ramp up to the perfect levels. When you are ready for bed just turn on the alarm and the house activates the goodnight scene. Unused lights turn off, outside lights are adjusted for security, and the halls become a dimmed pathway of light for nighttime safety. Just think, all this happened and you never touched a light switch.
Drapes and Shades
One of the best items to automate are draperies and shades. Opening and closing drapes can be a difficult and bothersome routine in a large home. Drapes and shades can be programmed to automatically open and close whenever you desire. They can be opened and closed at per-determined times, or be triggered by an event such as arming your alarm to the night mode. Beyond the convenience, think of drape and shade control as an extension of lighting control. Now you can easily control the light from high windows and skylights. By controlling this light you get energy savings and add life to carpets and furniture.
If you forget to set the alarm at bedtime… the system will do it for you. Have you ever left your garage door opened all night? That won’t happen because your automated security system checks and automatically closes it at a preselected time. Wouldn’t it be nice to get an email when your kids get home…or for that matter when anyone enters your home? Imagine setting your alarm and your doors automatically lock… or unlock when the security system turns off. Control your alarm my smart phone, hand held remote or iPad. These are just a few of the many advantages of automating your security system.
Heating & Air Conditioning
Heating and air conditioning control insures optimum comfort while providing energy savings as high as 25%. System costs can be recovered in several years. The system automatically “sets back” heating and cooling when you are asleep or away, and restores it when you wake or return home. For example, when set your alarm to the away mode, the system automatically raises the temperature to 80 degrees in the summer. When you return and disarm the alarm, the system resets your normal comfort setting of 75 degrees. HVAC automation is especially effective with multiple thermostats. When you go to bed your bedroom stays at the perfect temperature while unused areas in your home save energy by raising the temperature to 80 degrees. Before you awaken the system resets the temperature to your preferred comfort setting. Possibilities are endless for controlling the system. You can control and receive status reporting via telephone, trigger adjustments with events like leaving home, detecting interior motion, or simply the time of day.
