A smart home system is a way to control your home, reduce waste, and increase energy efficiency. Smart home technology has continually experienced growth especially in the American and European markets. With the wide availability of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices, people are increasingly considering converting their home to a smart home.
In the greater Raleigh-Durham area, Synergy Integrated Systems is a leading provider of home automation design, equipment and installation, so that your home heating and cooling systems, audio, visual, lighting and security can all be integrated and controlled from any mobile device, no matter where you are.
As home automation evolves and becomes more common, trends are emerging. Here are a few you can integrate into your home.
Home Theater and Audio/Visual Systems
Home Theaters are becoming more popular. Many people prefer to entertain their friends and family in their home, rather than taking everyone to a sporting event or the theater. Synergy Integrated Systems carries all of the top quality brands in audio/visual equipment and can create a network that you are able to control from any of your mobile devices. Their professionals can assist you in determining the best equipment for your home and then install it so that you can easily program or control all systems. Whether you choose Screen Innovations or Stewart Filmscreen for your screen, a Sony or Epson projector, speakers by Triad, Origin Acoustics or Revel, or acoustical treatments by Kinetic Noise Control products, Synergy will create a sound and video environment in your home that will attract your family and friends to the comfortable, customized atmosphere. You can choose the music that will play in any part of your home, based on the activity in progress…soothing classical music during dinner or lively jazz in the background for a party. One touch on your smart device and the evening’s audio program is set.
Control Heating and Cooling
With high energy costs, many homeowners are looking for solutions to reduce their bills. Smart thermostats allow homeowners to adjust the heating and cooling levels in their home whenever needed. The systems also provide statistics on energy usage so you can monitor and adjust consumption. Using smartphones and tablets, you can remotely adjust the temperature. Another trend in heating and cooling is the use of zoned systems. Certain parts of your home are heated and cooled based on how and when the areas are used.
Experience Advanced Security
Homes that traditionally relied on alarms are now transitioning to digitally based systems. Sensors detect intruders and cameras can capture their activities and identities. By strategically placing video cameras, you are able to monitor your home inside and out. Automated door locks can allow a package delivery or let the kids in when they get home from school. Protection is also expanding into systems that detect smoke, fire, or carbon monoxide and then alert the people in your home. An increased sense of security provides increased peace of mind.
Enhance Decor with Devices
When adding any elements to your home, you want them to blend in with your decor. Home automation systems are functional, but that doesn’t have to take away from aesthetic appeal. Many systems allow customization of the devices, so they nicely accent or blend in with your current decor. Hardware can be selected to highlight your modern home with sleek door locks or aesthetic thermostats and controllers.
