What it’s Like to Live in a Smart Home
Experience Home Automation in Florida with Innovative Lifestyles
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a smart home, but have never gotten the chance to experience it? The good news is that you can read this blog to get an idea, and then visit our showroom to have a hands-on experience actually using the technology. Today, most people think of smart refrigerators or washing machines when it comes to home automation. But the truth is that it’s more about connected living, one-touch controls, and simplicity. Read on to discover a day in the life of a smart home in the areas of Fort Myers, Captiva Island, or Sanibel, Florida.
If you have difficulty waking up every day, or just simply don’t enjoy morning time because it’s hectic, then having a smart home will make starting your day easy and enjoyable. In a Crestron automated home, hit the “wake” scene button and the roller shades quietly open to let in the daylight, your lights raise to a comfortable level, your favorite song turns on to get your going, and the mirror TV in the bathroom starts playing the morning show. And that's just the beginning in a home where all the technology is seamlessly integrated.
Away from Home
After you’ve had your cup of coffee and the kids are dressed and ready for school, you can rush out the door quickly and easily with the “away” button. All the lights turn off, the shades go down, all of the music and TVs shut down, the thermostat adjusts to a higher degree to save energy, and the security system arms. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that whether you are at work or in a foreign county, your home is always within reach. We can program the system to send you text messages or email alerts if there is a break-in, or other issues arise. You can even view surveillance camera footage in real-time on your smartphone for added assurance. During the drive back home, set the temperature and lighting to a comfortable and relaxing level so you can just walk in and enjoy being home.
Get together with the family on the weekend or when the work day is done in just one touch. Hit “movie night” while you’re in your home theater and the entire room automatically sets the scene for a relaxing night in. The projector comes out of the ceiling via a motorized lift, the screen lowers, the lights dim all the way down to reduce glare, and the movie server pops up so you can pick a flick. Easily control different video sources with a handheld remote or touch screen. This same remote can also lower the shades, arm the security system and lock the doors. A Crestron system integrates all the technology from your favorite brands, so you don’t have to worry about replacing that TV.
Say “Good night” from the comfort of your bedroom while you’re already in your PJs and tucked in by pressing a button on your phone. You could play some soothing jazz music while you wind down and read a book, or go right to getting some shut eye by turning off all the lights in the house at once. You can sleep soundly knowing that your home is securely armed. If you need a glass of water or snack in the middle of the night, sensors light your path all the way to the kitchen.
You can even schedule all of these actions to happen at the same time every day so you don’t have to lift a finger at all! That’s what automated living is all about.
