Smart Home Automation for Every New York Property
ACS Creates Immersive Automation Environments
By the year 2022, the smart home market is expected to grow to nearly $122 billion. All that activity equals a rapidly growing number of “things” in the world of the IoT. It also means a variety of platforms competing to control them all. As a consumer and homeowner, you might start to feel a little bit overwhelmed with so many smart home automation options to choose from. With a partner like Audio Command Systems, it’s easier than ever to get started and transform your New York house into a smart home.
Multi-room Audio & Video
If you’re like most families that we work with, you probably have as many rooms in your home as you do audio and video sources. By adding multiple zones of audio and video throughout a home provides each family member the freedom to enjoy their own media selection. Using a single app on an iPad, a homeowner can seamlessly turn on different music in the kitchen, living room, home office, and outdoors. Using the same iPad, he or she can start a movie in the family room, pause it and then resume watching it in the master bedroom.
Automated Shades and Lighting Control
Whether you have floor to ceiling windows that overlook a city skyline or a stunning ocean front view, motorized window treatments add privacy and convenience all without obstructing sight lines. They are easy to operate using a smartphone, touchscreen, or keypad and your blinds can automatically open and close based on the time of day, the season of the year, or other pre-programmed conditions that you select.
Automated shades pair perfectly with lighting control and ensure you’ll never have to return to a dark house again. With smart lighting, you can set your home’s lights to automatically turn on when you are within a certain distance of the house. The opposite is also true; lights can turn off once you are more than a mile away. A home lighting control system also allows you to create scenes that adjust several fixtures, dimming levels, and shade position, all at the touch of a single button.
For those new to smart home automation, connected climate control is a great starting point since it provides the homeowner the ability to keep the house constantly comfortable for the entire family. Plus getting control of over a home’s thermostat means reduced energy costs. A climate control system with occupancy sensors means you use less energy when no one is home. Since most systems also have an app, the homeowner can effortlessly make adjustments from their smartphone regardless of where they are. Tie the HVAC into the home’s automation system and with the press of a button you can lower the temperature as well as adjust the shades and dim the lights.
Intuitive Control from Anywhere
No longer do you need a bank of light switches or a pile of remotes on the coffee table. From a single device, like a tablet or a touchscreen, you can control everything from the lights and the drapes to the cable box and thermostat. Our home automation partner Crestron offers interfaces that are not only elegant but also fully customizable; meaning every homeowner we work with gets a simple to use system that is aesthetically pleasing.
