Home Automation

Posted in Home Automation

Imagine the ability to control your home remotely from your laptop computer or smart phone.  Imaging the ability to view your home in real time while on vacation half way around the world.  Imagine the ability to turn on and off specific lights or electrical appliances, such as an oven, on the way home from your job.  Imagine the ability to be able to regulate the temperature in your home as you are driving home.   Imagine the ability to receive updates from your home security system while away on vacation or on a business trip.  Imagine the ability to turn on your irrigation system while out of town.  There is no need to imagine a day when this will be possible, as it is available today with home automation! 

Home automation is possible due the extensive use of “structured wiring” in today’s homes.  This wiring, which is separate from the electrical wiring, allows the home to become “digital”.  Even older homes built without this wiring can have it easily retrofitted by a qualified, licensed contractor that specializes in home automation.  One of the greatest things about home automation, besides the convenience that it provides the homeowner and their family, is the efficiency that these systems provide.  Ultimately this efficiency saves money! 

Contacting a qualified, professional contractor that specialized in home automation s the first step in taking advantage of the conveniences and efficiency that home automation provides.  They will be able to design and install a system that meets your needs as well as your budget!
