Fully Integrated Home Automation


Take a look at this video on the new Control4 OS3- The Operating System for your Smart Home:

With the boom in IoT (internet of things), there has never been a time that more smart home technologies have been available.  It can be a maze to try and decide which technologies work together,  what the functionality is and if its a good fit for your needs.  Our job is to navigate these waters for you.  We know what works with google (nest), we know what works with Alexa, we know how to integrate them into easy to use systems that give you the control with smart home operating systems like the new Control4 3.0 IOS or Savant’s IOS based options.   Our showroom is designed so that you can come in and see these products in action and get a sense for what will enrich your daily lives.  Most important is that we are here to service your home and system once everything is up and connected!

Our process starts with one on one meetings in which we walk you through all types of technologies- show you how they work and talk about how they compare in costs.  From there we will work to create system designs, documents and estimates to help you understand what the system will do for you and your family.  All of this is included for no charge when you partner with Audio Concepts, Inc!

 

Home Automation


So what does this actually mean? Most often when your family sits down to enjoy a movie, it takes at least three or four remotes to actually get the movie playing. Then after the movie finally begins, you have to get up and turn off or dim the lights. With Control4 home automation, you only need one remote to do all of that. With a simple press of a button, all of the devices involved (TV or projector, Blu-ray player, media player, receiver) will all set themselves to the correct inputs and your lights will automatically dim to your desired level.

Voice Control


Alexa, Google Home, Siri, and Josh.ai are a few of the most popular home automation options available on the market today.  While Amazon, Google and Apple are all developing portions of home automation, unfortunately none of these are as plug and play or stand alone options as some of the commercials you  see lead you to believe.  We recommend talking to us as a system integration specialist to help you make the voice technologies work for you.  You may just want to use Alexa to turn on a couple lights, which is great, but we can help to setup custom commands to turn you entire home into a fully integrated smart home. For example- saying “Alexa Goodnight” can turn off your lights, all of your TVs and Music, set your Air Conditioning and arm your security, maybe even text your kids to tell them to shut off their video games and go to bed!  The possibilities are endless,  check out this video showing a Control4 integration to Alexa:

Control4 offers a full range of smart lighting products that let you control virtually any lighting devices – large or small, interior or exterior, CFL or LED – exactly the way you choose. Control4 technology enables you to integrate your lights with music, shades, locks, climate control and video—so that with just one touch, you can turn all the lights on or off, set the scene for bedtime or a dinner party, manage your energy use, or make sure that your home is safe and secure. You can even use your smartphone, tablet, or a PC with the Control4 app to manage your lighting from virtually anywhere in the world for the ultimate in convenience and control.

Shades


Motorized Window Treatments

Motorized window coverings can effectively capture the personal essence of any room in your home. They help take charge of natural lighting, changing bright light into pleasantly muted light or even darkening rooms or areas for a comfy afternoon naps or deep overnight snoozing. Motorized window shading and coverings also help to maintain privacy, highlight the beauty of your outdoor vistas, provide shelter from the sun’s heat and protect furniture and artwork from fading. With a gentle tap of your fingertip, you can use your touch screen tablet or smart phone to lower, raise, retract, slide and tilt the shades in any room of your home at any time of the day.
