Upgrade Your Outdoor Space With ShadeCraft’s Sunflower

Winter may have just begun, but it’s never too early to start thinking about how you’re going to jazz up your outdoor space when warm weather returns to New York City. One of the most exciting new technologies we’ve seen is ShadeCraft’s Sunflower, an automated umbrella shade that also functions as a multipurpose technology hub.

Always Stay In The Shade

If you have a stationary umbrella shade, you’ve had to deal with inconsistent protection from sunlight. The sun is moving throughout the day, and if your shade doesn’t move with it, there are always going to be exposed areas. An adjustable umbrella shade can help, but manual models can be so hard to use that you end up not taking advantage of this extra feature.

The Sunflower solves this problem by moving automatically with the sun, opening up in the morning and tracking the sun until it sets. If there are high winds or other inclement weather, the shade will automatically close so you don't have to worry about the device being damaged.

Smart Home Control by Savant Provides Great Features and a Polished Interface

Savant Systems, a leader in luxury home integration, will change the way you enjoy your home. Control the lights, climate, entertainment, and security with ease.  Whether you’re new to the world of smart homes, an old pro, or somewhere in between, ACS can design and install a system that fits your lifestyle, personal taste, and your pocketbook.  Read on to learn more about experiencing your New York home in a completely different way.

Direct Your Home from Your Favorite Seat
Savant recently announced the launch of its newest product, the Savant Remote that promises a smart home setup in minutes. The slick home integration system is not only wonderfully simple, but it’s significantly less costly. It’s a hub, a high-resolution touchscreen remote, and a control device for a lamp, all of which communicate over WiFi. The remote works via Bluetooth so there’s no need to point it in any particular direction. Its capabilities are somewhat limited, focusing on entertainment and lighting. However, there are some standout features that make the system shine. They include the ability to work the remote using voice control, a mobile app that gives you all the same features as the remote, and the ability to create scenes so you can easily turn on the TV to a specific channel and dim the lights at the press of a button. The system works with Sonos, Roku, and most modern televisions. Savant plans to add more devices like shades, locks, and connected light bulbs.

Schedule outdoor lights to turn on just before you arrive home from work or save energy by setting the system to turn off lights in empty rooms. Use your Apple Watch to adjust the thermostat remotely so you'll be comfortable when you get home; schedule shades to close in the middle of the day to increase energy efficiency, plus keep an eye on your vacation home with alerts about extreme cold or humidity.

Entertain with ease and gain peace of mind
Whether you’re dining with friends or spending time with family, Savant is one touch away. Steam HD video from Netflix, Apple TV, or Hulu and watch up to nine things at once on the big screen using the TrueControl App. Rest easy with Savant home security solutions, whether you are home or away.
