What Is It Like to Live in a Connected Home?
In a connected world, a smart home automation upgrade to your Atlanta home seems like a no-brainer. One-touch controls of all the devices in and around your property make for a simple, streamlined and fun lifestyle. But many of our clients are hesitant to jump headfirst into the world of automation – after all, it seems like a major change to even the most basic functions of your home. That's why we've put together a number of tools to give you a sense of what it's like to live in a connected home. In this blog, we'll show you what you can do to research the smart home experience before you purchase.
Get Familiar With Apps
One of the words you hear most frequently when talking about smart technology is "apps." Most smart devices function with a dedicated app that uses the technology already in your smartphone, tablet or computer and applies it to controlling the device. A system like Control4 or Elan g! offers the ability to combine multiple apps under a single interface. The company can periodically update your app to include new sources for control, meaning you don't have to purchase a new remote every time you want to add a new device. You can find a list of apps for all of your home control needs here.
Take a Look at a Virtual Demo
While determining which control system works for your home is a great first step, it's always best to get a hands-on demo. That's why we have a virtual demo right here on our site. Everything from control of the lights through the use of pre-set scenes to surveillance footage monitoring is available for trial. Click around on the digital interface to give the technology practical context, and see just how easy it is to control your entire home.
Visit Our Showroom
Finally, if you want the real experience, there's no better place to play with all of the latest devices and capabilities than at our showroom. You'll get a personalized look at how to use the technology in your home theater, smart lighting and shading, surveillance systems, climate control and more. You may even get inspired with design ideas – like how to build the perfect man cave featuring a built-in bar and total home control – or decide to upgrade your sound system with immersive audio from Dolby Atmos. There's no better way to do research than by getting to know the products first hand.
