Home automation is where technology and convenience converge, forming a network made up of individual devices all working together in harmony. This networked system provides you with instant control over other individual devices and appliances throughout your home or office.

Home automation uses technology to make your everyday tasks in the home (or office) simpler, safer, or less expensive. Home automation systems can control lights and dimmers, create or enhance home theater and entertainment systems, strengthen home security, automate locks and doors, and increase energy efficiency.

AV Automation: Home Automation

Imagine a home theater that takes care of lights, picture and sound with one touch. A door that can tell you when your teenager gets home. A sprinkler system that knows the weather forecast, and a garage door that remembers to close itself if left open for too long.

An automated home coordinates security, temperatures, lighting, and audio/video automatically for safety, energy savings, and convenience. Automatically dimming lights and changing heating and cooling set points when you are away from home can greatly reduce energy costs. Remote access lets you view security video on a laptop or web-enabled cell phone. Adding home automation can also increase the value of your home.
