How Installation Saves

A professional installation goes a long way in saving homeowners time and money. That’s why we collaborate closely with design professionals through the product selection and installation process. 

All our technology systems are installed and programmed with energy efficiency in mind. For example, we often program each room’s motorized shades individually, and automate them in 24-hour cycles, creating a system that minimizes sun damage and lowers AC energy bills. 

Also, we always take into account the possibility of future system updates and expansions and automate every system to reflect your unique energy management goals. 

How Automation Saves

There can be no efficient energy management without proper system integration and automation

Through a Control4 automation interface, we give you control over every technology system at the tap of the screen. 

Lutron’s smart lights will dim to match your current mood and turn off automatically when you exit a room. JBL and Sonance speakers will respond on demand thanks to Josh AI’s voice control features. 

When programmed and automated by professionals, each product in your smart home will work both on its own and as part of a greater whole. Best of all, efficiency leads to lower energy consumption!
