Lutron and Crestron both manufacture high-quality shades in various colors and designs with sophisticated controllers. The choice depends on whether you are looking to add shades as complete home integration or as a standalone solution.

The Home Office, Transformed

Crestron HomeTime Technology Turns Your Home Office Into a Collaboration Space. 

Whether by necessity or a lifestyle choice, it is clear that the trend towards working from home is growing exponentially.  This change was well underway before the events of 2020, but the accelerated manner in which the majority of work changed has made remote work normal.

According to Entrepreneur Magazine, many founders are already committing to having an average of 70 percent of staff work remotely for the next five to ten years.  Studies have also shown that the productivity of workers has maintained or slightly increased. No matter how they got there, many employees are rethinking the attraction of high-density living for work. Many have already made a move to accommodate the current health precautions and manage a life-work balance actively. 

In order to accommodate the needs of remote work, we have turned to online conference tools.  Regardless of location, any conferencing set-up must provide a means not only to connect with others. We must have the ability to talk remotely as if we are all in the same room.

5 Home Office Technology Tools You Need

Impress Your Team With Optimized Conferences, Superior Integration Tools and Flattering Lighting Design!

According to a Gartner study released in July, more than 80% of company leaders surveyed said their organizations plan to permit employees to work remotely at least part of the time upon reopening from the novel coronavirus pandemic. This shows a large uptick even from last year, when telecommuting still looked like a “nice-to-have” benefit instead of a necessity.

Though many love the flexibility of working from home, the setup comes with challenges. Suddenly, you don’t have the enterprise-grade network, AV conferencing technology or high-end lighting that your workplace provided. Nor do you have an IT support person to call when your presentation doesn’t appear on the screen. At ACS, we install home office technology that streamlines your devices and automates many processes to keep this transition as smooth and easy as possible. Keep reading for some tools we recommend.

Welcome-to-the-World-of-Voice-Control

Welcome to the World of Voice Control

Amazon Echo, the surprise tech hit of the 2016, is transforming the way homeowners and renters control nearly every aspect of the places they call home. Pair this new voice control technology with the endless custom integration possibilities of Crestron, and you get a highly personalized home, one that fits your unique needs.

The Amazon Echo is a hands-free speaker you control with your voice. Since its launch in 2014, the speaker has rapidly evolved into a powerful digital assistant and smart home hub. The device, which is about the size of two soup cans stacked on top of one another, allows users to play music, control lights, shades and temperature, get news, sports scores, weather, and access other smart home features.

All you have to do is ask. The hub is controlled by simply speaking to it. Because the system integrates with Crestron, Audio Command Systems can offer the next generation in home integration to both new and existing customers.

Components of the System

Alexa is the voice-activated personal assistant technology that allows users to control the Amazon Echo, the speaker that resembles a Pringle can, and the Dot, its hockey puck-sized counterpart. Alexa is the brains behind the system, and since it is built in the cloud, it’s always getting smarter. With a few additional devices, you can control everything from your thermostat to your door locks. Or if you prefer, you can take a more leisurely approach, setting up a couple of lights, and adding more devices to your collection down the line. Additionally, Amazon Prime members can ask Alexa to order products much like they would order online from the website.
