Systems

Home AutomationHome Automation is no longer futuristic. It is now a standard item that greatly increases the value, safety, and efficiency of your home. It is about leveraging technology to simplify and enhance your lifestyle.

Imagine the start of your day beginning with lights automatically coming on, your favorite CD starts to play, and meanwhile the blinds slowly open and the coffee pot starts brewing your favorite blend. All this and you haven't even gotten out of bed!

Whenever you leave your home, with the push of a single button, you can simply arm your security system, adjust the climate control and turn off the lights to save energy. We can program your system so that the blinds and awnings automatically open and close at sunset/sunrise. You can even link sprinklers to turn on and off according to sunrise and sunset.

Home automation is easy to use and you can access, change, and monitor your systems via the web and your telephone. We can program it so that your system calls you over the phone or sends an email to inform you when your children have arrived home from school, or if the alarm has gone off. There are even video surveillance capabilities over the Internet, so you can get a visual check of your home via your office PC, PDA, or web-enabled phone. It is also upgradeable, so if you don't need some features right now, you could add them later. Whatever your needs and budget allows, we can design a system that's right for you.

 

 

Whole House MusicSometimes the most pleasure comes from what you hear not what you see. With distributed audio you can hear music wherever you are in your house, all controlled by the touch of a button. Listen to soft background music, crank up the volume for a summer BBQ, or distribute your favorite satellite radio program to every room. It is more than just great sound, it’s a lifestyle.

With a multi-source distributed audio system, you can access your favorite CD in the kitchen, the TV in another room, your MP3 collection in the bedroom, and listen to talk radio in another. All these audio sources can be individually controlled by locally mounted easy to use keypads with individual balance and volume controls to enhance the specific individual’s listening experience.

With a whole-house music system, there is no clutter, awkward components or obtrusive speakers. All equipment is neatly concealed in one discreet location, but yet accessible. The keypads are designed to blend in visually and can complement any décor. High quality sound speakers can be installed in your ceiling or wall and look nearly invisible, or disguised as rocks in your yard or garden.

 

 

Distributed VideoWith a whole-house distributed video system, you can watch shows from your DVD player, VCR, satellite dish, or closed circuit TV cameras on any TV, simultaneously in every room of your home. Now’s there no need to purchase DVD players and other video equipment for every room because the system is centralized. The centralized components can either be hidden away in a closet, or if you prefer, mounted in an impressive rack system in your media room.

Easily control the entire system through handheld remotes or wall mounted control panels. The only components needed in each viewing area are speakers and TV screens. Whatever your needs, an ideal system can be custom designed for you.

Put a camera in your children's rooms and you can watch your kids from any TV in the house. Put a camera on your front porch and see who is at the door without having to open your door. These cameras also come with microphones so you can also use it as a baby monitor.

 

 

Lighting ControlControlled lighting allows you to create the perfect setting in your home. An integrated system, along with motorized shades and draperies, enables you to adjust the aesthetics to your liking. Instead of merely turning on / off various lights in the house, the system can work together in any combination to offer preset sequences or prearranged schedules. You can program scenes for scenarios like "reading," "cocktail party," or "movie viewing." Imagine hosting a party and pressing one button to light the interior and exterior of your house in the most attractive manner.

Lighting also creates a more secure home. As you approach your driveway, and with the touch of a button in your car, turn on your exterior flood lights, open the garage door and illuminate the hallway from your garage to your kitchen. One of the master controls for the entire home could be next to your bed. Should you hear a sound outside in the middle of the night, you can turn on all the lights in and outside the home. Or when you leave for vacation, you press one button so that lights turn on and off and shades close and open creating a pattern that suggests someone is still home

Additionally, integrated lights can add value to you home. The preset scenes and automatic timers can conserve power and save you money. The same wiring that commands the lights can also command lawn irrigation, pool temperature, hot tubs, garage door openers, and your complete home entertainment system. Imagine the simplicity, the convenience and the security that integrated lighting will bring to your life.

 

 

Energy ManagementAn energy management system allows you to monitor and control your energy consumption of the air conditioner, the lights, electronics, and some large appliances giving you a detailed history as well as an accurate real time analysis so you know exactly what to expect the next time you get the bill in the mail.

 

 

Home Theater & Media RoomsCreating a luxury home theater today is limited only by your imagination. Advanced technology means you can now have a superior level of audio and video in your home entertainment room that surpasses the impact and realism of even the best commercial cinema. Other outstanding new technology includes features such as special acoustics, sound proofing, drape and light automation, multi channel audio, universal remote, custom theater carpet and theater seating.

Enjoy a media center with high quality video and audio from anywhere you sit. Furthermore, we can take the clutter usually found in the family room and conceal the electronic components in cabinets and wall. Now, projectors may be hidden in custom-made tables or bulkheads, speakers can be flush mounted to walls and ceilings, and retractable projection screens just disappear into overhead cavities.

Our innovative home theater designs and media centers can adapt to any space, whether you are building a new home, remodeling a spare room or completing an unfinished basement. No matter if you would like to simply upgrade your family room with surround sound and an LCD television or create your very own movie palace, we can help you to enjoy the authentic theater experience.

We have designed a variety of different theater packages for almost every budget so even the entertainment enthusiasts can experience the thrill of a cutting-edge theater system.

Data NetworkingA home network gives you the ability to share files, music, and printers without having to leave the computer you are working on. That means you can retrieve the document you typed in your home office, even though you are on your laptop in the bedroom. It also allows you to purchase one printer and share it instead of buying one for every computer in the house.

Wired or wireless, we can provide a system that gives you the security and flexibility you need. We can also enable you to control who’s accessing the Internet when. Imagine your son or daughter has wireless Internet access with his/her notebook computer. But you can control the signal by putting the modem on a timer, thus not allowing the children to access the Internet after midnight.

 

 

Security & SurveillanceAn integrated security system can do more than sound a siren or call the monitoring station. An integrated system is capable of a variety of automation tasks as well as protecting your home or business. Our systems can turn on or flash lights in the event of an alarm. We can schedule lighting scenes to give the home a lived in look to prevent costly break-ins. Additionally, automatic lighting scenes can be pre-programmed to different levels depending on time of day.

Adding cameras around the perimeter of the home or business can further enhance our security systems. An access control system can be used to protect against unauthorized entries into restricted areas while allowing easy access for authorized family members and guests. We do all we can to help protect your family.
