Are All Your Smart Devices Working in Harmony?


Avoid a Disjointed Solution With Total Home Automation

Do you want to take advantage of the many smart home devices that have hit the market? Knowing which you want to include –from smart thermostats to motorized shading—is only the first step. The next one is figuring out how to get them all working together for more convenient and efficient control of your St. Augustine, FL home.

Even though the advertised simplicity of some of these devices makes a DIY installation temping, it’s easy for your smart home installation to go wrong. Do you want to end up in a situation where you have to use ten different apps to go about your day? Total home automation not only helps you centralize control, but it even gets these devices communicating with each other for optimal results.

Centralized Control

Out of the many DIY installations we fix, the biggest complaint is not being able to integrate different devices into one app, remote, or keypad. Despite the allure of controlling speakers or thermostats from an app, it gets exhausting when you need a whole folder on your smartphone dedicated to your house.

Our total home automation solutions get rid of this problem by placing all of your smart technology under one umbrella. Through our Control4 systems, we integrate lights, audio, video, security, climate and more within one easy-to-use interface you can access on a dedicated touchpad or mobile app. Add elegant keypads on the wall that let you control music, lights, and shades.

Integrated Scenes

Each of the devices in your home can also work together through the use of integrated scenes that activate multiple technology subsystems simultaneously. Pull up these scenes through your preferred control devices (keypad, mobile app, or voice commands) or automate them through the use of sensors or schedules. Below are some of the most popular ones with our clients:

  • Movie Time: When you’re ready to watch a movie in your home theater or media room, press a button that dims the lights, closes the shades, and turns on the display to your main entertainment menu.
  • Wake Up: Schedule a scene to happen at 7 a.m. each day to ease you out of bed. It opens the shades, raises your thermostat, and plays your alarm to help you wake up in the morning. 
  • Away: Depending on how consistent your routine is, set this scene via a keypad near your front door or schedule it for the time you usually leave in the morning. It’ll turn off lights, lock your doors, activate your alarm and set your thermostat to an energy-saving mode.
  • Emergency: You can integrate many of your smart devices with your security system to help you respond in case of an emergency. If your alarm goes off, your lights automatically turn off, and doors unlock to allow for a quicker evacuation.
