Holiday gift ideas for (You) the Homeowner

Boxwoods-2

While spending the holiday season at home without the stress of traveling to the in-laws, weather delays, and packing may sound like the simplest option this year; hosting brings its own set of challenges. More family visiting, constant package deliveries, and a new set of food critics will be enough to need an extra hand around the house. While we can’t be there to take package inventory or whip up a gourmet meal for the family, we can upgrade your home’s automation system to ensure things run as smoothly as possible. 

 

OS3 Upgrade

As the host of this year’s holiday, you’ll want to make sure everyone feels comfortable in your home- and that means having the newest version of your home automation system to ensure everything is as seamless as possible. Whether that is to control the lights, televisions, speakers, or temperature, you’ll want everyone to be familiar with using your Control 4 automation system throughout the home. With the new Control 4 OS3 upgrade the 10” touchscreen display features the most intuitive interface yet, to ensure everyone in your home can easily and manage your home’s controls without your help.

Lutron Lighting Comes with a Vast Number of Benefits

There is no better light than natural light. Imagine harnessing the power and physical benefits of natural light inside your home, even during the winter months. Well, that is exactly what Ketra’s (a Lutron acquisition) circadian lighting does.

A Golf Simulator Can Also Serve As Your All-In-One Media Room

Digital technology is constantly improving, bringing us high-tech graphics and virtual experiences that are ever closer to the real thing.

A lot of us have recently found ourselves confined to our homes, unable to enjoy a day on the golf course or the in-person experience of a movie cinema. Since we are having to use our online movie platforms more than ever, we might as well try to make it feel like a trip to the movie theater.

Designing and installing an at-home media room can not only simulate an actual movie theater, it can also be used as a game room where you can install a golf-simulator.

Our clients in University Park, TX have found that a golf simulator can provide not just an afternoon on the links, but also be part of an all-immersive entertainment center where they can enjoy a wide range of games and movies with family and friends.

5 Things to Consider When Building a Home

3109-Greenbrier-LG-101

You’ve made the decision to build a home, now where do you start? 

The process of building a new home is exciting and often overwhelming. You may feel pressure to perfect every inch because after all, you will be the one living in it. While planning the layout, exterior and interior design are crucial factors, the overall functionality of your Texas home is just as important. Identifying your technology needs is the first step to creating a smart home that will complement your lifestyle, rather than complicate it. Once you have outlined your needs, knowing the right questions to ask will lead you to the most efficient and automated home for you and your family. Hiring a specialist like us, to explain home automation topics to guide you through technology options will ensure you have all the answers to questions you didn’t know to ask, as well as help you achieve your smart home goals. Below are our recommendations for our most requested home technology features. 

Lighting

Creating a custom lighting scene is an essential part of improving productivity, security, and relaxation in your home. While most often, people focus on the overall design and look of their lighting scheme, we focus on the control of those lights. The ability to control your lights from your phone, a touch panel, remote, or the old-fashioned switch on the wall is the first of many automation controls in your new home. In this phase of planning, we recommend beginning in the most used areas of your home: family room, kitchen, hallways, etc… These areas of your home with the most traffic will be where you will want to have the most control on a daily basis. 

Installing control switches from Lutron or Control4 will allow you to turn the connected lights on and off and in most cases dim to the desired output. Although, many clients expand to include all the lights in their homes to be connected to one control system. We often hear how much of a relief it is to our clients that with the touch of a single button on the way out the door, they know that every light is turned off, even the kid’s closet!
