Smart home systems have grown in popularity over the years, and for good reason. With so many options in automation, there is plenty of convenience and power to make the home more comfortable and safe. When it comes to these new smart home options, there is very little limit as to what is available. Imagine if you will that you can pull out your phone or tablet and control your lighting, home security, entertainment, kitchen, air conditioning, heating and more.
Motorized window lighting features are a convenient and efficient luxury. Having these window treatments in a home creates an all around better mood and increases energy efficiency. At Caldwell, we use Lutron systems. These automated window treatments use a “Quiet Drive” EDU motor that is nearly inaudible. The only sound that can be heard is the fabric of the shades rolling up and down. These shades can even be set to raise and lower depending on the sun’s location creating the ultimate luxury in perfect lighting and energy efficiency.
At the touch of your electronic device, you can ensure your home is safe from intruders. Depending on what level of security you desire you can include automated locks, video cameras, sensors and more. Gates that open to driveways, doors that lock and unlock for you and guests, and even safety features like smoke detectors can all be included in your smart home system. If you decide to take an extended trip you can ensure your home is safe. You can even look in on your house from your vacay with camera features.
Window treatments are only one aspect of lighting for smart home systems. Automated light bulbs can be turned on and off at the touch of a device. Lights can also be controlled by sensors that turn down lights according to how much natural lighting is available. You can also set the system to turn on lights at a certain hour. You can give your home the appearance of being occupied while you are away. It is also possible to ensure your home is well lit for your entrance at the end of a long workday.
Whether you want a few features for added energy efficiency or the whole works, at Caldwell, we provide a wealth of services for your home automation needs. Our smart home systems installations are completely customizable. Give us a call today to set up a free consultation.
