Smartphone apps have made a lot of things in our lives easier. Remember how your high school math teacher used to tell you that you should learn how to do math problems without a calculator because you wouldn’t always have a calculator handy? Well, now there’s an app for that.
When it comes to smart home technology, apps have made home automation and control much easier as well. You don’t have to learn how to use a completely new device—you can use the smartphone or tablet you already have (and that you’re already familiar with) to control and automate the systems in your home!
Savant Systems, our company of choice for premium home automation products for Orange County homes, has created an app that works seamlessly with their products. What makes this app great is that it is both intuitive and highly customizable.
With Savant’s TrueControl App, iOS device users can control everything from their home’s lighting to its security, HVAC systems, and AV systems. And with the TruImage Control technology available with the app, users can see images of the actual smart home products in their home by uploading photos from the rooms in their smart home. For example, if you wanted to control the lighting in your master bedroom, you would touch the image of your bedroom, and then tap the image of the light fixture you want to turn on or off or dim to the desired level of brightness.
With the TrueControl app, you can also do things like adjust your home’s thermostat and monitor your energy consumption. You can view images from your home’s interior and exterior security cameras from anywhere in the world and stream and distribute audio and video to any room in your house. You also have the option of controlling things like pools, spas, water features, or fireplaces with the touch of a button on your smartphone or tablet. Navigating the app is simple, making home automation accessible to those who wouldn’t necessarily consider themselves “tech savvy.”
To use the Savant TrueControl app, you must have a professionally installed Savant System that is compatible with the app. Good Sounds has been an authorized dealer of Savant Systems for many years and has installed state-of-the-art smart home systems in homes throughout Orange County.
