Simple controls are not enough to adequately control home systems simply because the sheer size of the home prohibits convenient access to multiple points of control. By streamlining all home systems into one integrated unity and giving the homeowner instant, one touch access through touch panels and hand-held remotes, AMX home system integration combines the benefits of technology with the convenience of human thought and command and brings a number of unique, specific benefits to today’s eclectic homeowner.
AMX home system integration provides homeowners with a convenient, single system approach to controlling audio/visual equipment within the house.
ILD home lighting design and electrical specialists will install AMX touch panels throughout the home, creating multiple zones of distributed audio and video. This results in the creation of separate, customized environments, each one of which is unique to a particular area of the home. In the living room, for example, audio distribution feeds can play soft music in the background of conversation. A good home theater system can excel public cinema with its special blend of video, sound effect, and background music complimentary to the movie sound score. Upbeat rhythms can set the mood for pool parties and gatherings around the spa.
AMX home system integration can unify security cameras and security systems throughout the home.
ILD will configure the system to automatically open and close shades, doors, and gates at certain times of the day and night. Home security automation systems and security camera surveillance will monitor the property to alert people within the home to the approach of unexpected visitors. The phone system can be linked to the intercom to allow the homeowner to question the visitor before deciding whether or not to grant access. One touch control panels placed in secure areas of the home can either be used to grant access or notify authorities to the presence of an intruder.
Home system integration allows homeowners to control home systems remotely via the Internet.
Homeowners can access their residences remotely over the Internet to communicate directly with their home automation equipment using AMX technology. Individuals who are travelling can log in and monitor their home from a hotel or a laptop with Wi-Fi connectivity. Homeowners with more than one residence can manage all of their properties throughout the day through this technology.
Home system integration allows for multiple, personal lighting scenes to be programmed into the system.
The same set of lighting fixtures can be used to create very different house lighting levels and effects with AMX controllers. Everything from relaxed evening lighting, romantic mood lighting, and bright lights for family gatherings and celebrations can be accessed with one touch convenience.
Home system integration provides total control of all environmental systems.
Air conditioning and heating are costly conveniences that should be constantly monitored and managed. AMX home system integration allows homeowners to do exactly that. ILD professionals can pre-program the system with settings that reflect individual preferences in temperature and ventilation. Different settings can be created for different rooms of the house, keeping costs at a minimum in rooms that are used less frequently than others. The system can also monitor each room in the home and make sure that the desired temperature is maintained.
Home system integration controls can be programmed with a personalized sequence of events.
An AMX home integration system can be programmed to activate certain desired events at specific times in the homeowner’s schedule. For example, as the homeowner approaches the front door, the home automation devices can automatically turn on the exterior and interior lights, tune the television to a favorite channel, and adjust the heating or air conditioning to the preferred level.
