Imagine a room configured with home automation controls and equipment that seem to read your mind through your fingertips. A world where audio, video, lighting, and temperature control devices all tie into a central home automation system that gives the home a life of its own reflecting your unique, eclectic lifestyle. Imagine these home automation devices having the capability of working equally well both inside and outside the home, controlling everything from lighting in the summer kitchen to the spa jets in the pool. This world of almost conscious home automation devices is not the dream of some science fiction writer in a far off future. It is here and now, and available for YOUR WORLD the moment you call Illuminations Lighting and Design.
While a computer behind the scenes controls almost every home automation device, the actual manipulation of these units is extremely user-friendly and requires no electronics or technical knowledge to operate. The majority of our home automation devices and systems provide multiple options and immediate responses to user requests via touch panels and screens or keypads. Our AMX and Vantage touch panels not only provide the very best in ease and diversity of options, but our AMX touch screen even offers Internet integration, allowing you to check your email while adjusting your lighting and climate controls. With Vantage keypads, we can pre-program lighting scenes and themes based upon your individual, personal activities within the home. We are likely to make as many combinations available to you as you have activities to enhance. Whenever you wish to execute a certain lighting theme, you may do so by entering a simple code. If you wish, we can even go one step further and integrate audio tracks into the program so each scene has its own background music. Imagine the entertainment potential in this alone!
In fact, some of our home automation device controls offer up to 250 different lighting scenes, combined with the ability to actually modulate the light itself in different portions of the home. This way, you can have bright lights and upbeat music playing in the kitchen while you prepare entrees, and relaxed sounds and dim lights in the living room where guests recline and enjoy quiet conversation. If you want to take the party outside to the pool, you can turn on the spa jets and pre-adjust the temperature through a Jandy pool controller. These sophisticated devices for home automation work equally well indoors and out, and they can be kept either in the den or right next to the pool in the summer kitchen or patio bar. Our clients especially appreciate the mobility this offers them. Home automation systems and devices in the past were much more primitive, bulky, and fixed in location. Now, they can be anywhere and everywhere on the property, just like you.
Perhaps the greatest technological advance in the evolution of the home automation device has been the invention of handheld remotes. We offer models by two of the very best manufacturers on the globe: AMX and Universal Remote. These units control everything from lights to audio and video equipment in home entertainment and home theatre systems. For even more integration of the entire home, we can upgrade you to an AMX home automation device that adds HVAC, security system and pool/spa control to the system. This way, no one has to argue over temperature at your next party. With direct climate control, you can accommodate both hot natured and cold natured guests by setting different temperatures for different parts of the home and focus on what really matters at a party: advanced control of audio and video volume, surround sound, and source selections ranging from IPOD, XM radio, and multiple CD’s on server.
