Nothing quite says “convenience and lifestyle” more than a home automation system from Illuminations Lighting and Design. With the workplace often demanding more than it offers, and with the increasing complexity and instability of society, more and more of our clients are looking into the benefits of home automation. System configurations for these clients vary on a case-by-case basis because each homeowner has specific preferences for decorum, entertainment, and daily routine that in turn define the parameters of a home automation system that will offer maximum accommodation to their lifestyle.
Our clientele represents a vast and diverse cross section of Texas society. Perhaps the one motivator they all share is the desire for simplicity. Life being complex and demanding, each of our clients, regardless of vocation, neighborhood, income level, or personal belief, wants their home to provide a shelter from the constant flux and stress of the outside world. A home automation system offers the individual a simplified life by placing lighting, electrical power output, entertainment, and even heating and cooling under the direct control of a central computer system, normally installed in an inconspicuous space such as a closet. Consider, for example, the comprehensive control we can deliver through a Vantage home automation system featuring advanced software and user-friendly controls that manipulate lighting, audio/video, climate, and even pool temperature and landscape lighting all through a single retrofit controller. The software that powers this home automation system anticipates every homeowner need. It includes device libraries for third party equipment manufacturers that facilitate integration of entertainment systems into home automation convenience. A homeowner can choose from a number of pre-programmed templates or create and save a new template through a simple keypad that eliminates the need for complex switches and settings.
In recent years, we have noticed many of our clients moving away from nightlife into new venues of home entertainment. As such, they prefer to invest their earnings in equipment that will last for many years to come and deliver superior audio/visual quality in comparison to public facilities. Consequently, they expect not only a home automation system to control electricity and lighting, but also to power stereo and television output for maximum entertainment of their guests. As so many of our clients enjoy entertaining outdoors as well as indoors, it is important for them to have access to their entertainment systems regardless of their position on the property. With advanced acoustical and video solutions by Cedia, Boston, and Vienna Acoustics, we can provide homeowners with remote access to their HDTV’s and stereo systems with home automation remote control access. Using this technology, they can make adjustments to acoustics and video inside the home without having to leave the grill, the outdoor kitchen, or the guests on the patio. Illuminations Lighting and Design distributes acoustic and video equipment from the world’s leading manufacturers in these industries. Not only can we link an entire home entertainment suite to a home automation system, but also we can literally build a complete home theatre with state of the art acoustics from the ground up!
Perhaps the greatest thanks we ever receive from our clients are for the wide variety of options we deliver in a home automation system. Everyone seeks controls that are easy to operate, but not everyone is the same. To accommodate the diversity of our home automation clients, we offer an enormous selection to accommodate virtually any preference. As many home automation systems involve not only the ability to turn lights on and off, but also to manipulate the actual amount of light itself, we carry Lutron dimmer switches of all makes ranging from paddle switch and slide dimmers to high tech multilocation lighting keypads. Please keep in mind as well that convenience is not the only benefit to expect from a home automation system. New Homeworks RF technology has hit the market, enabling remote, and lighting. Travelers can dial via Internet into the control unit and turn their bedroom and living room lights on and off, creating the illusion that someone is home. And, of course, before entering a dark house, why not turn on the lights from the car remote so everything is visible and safe to enter?
