When someone from our team goes to a consultation with a potential client looking for a home automation company in Orange County, they often find themselves educating the homeowners on all of the home’s systems that can be automated. Many homeowners aren’t aware of everything a well-designed home automation system can do—and that’s OK! We love talking about smart home technology and home automation and getting homeowners excited about how they can make their homes more efficient, safe, and enjoyable.
If you’re new to the idea of home automation, here are some of the most popular systems in your home that you can control with smart home technology:
Changing your home’s lighting is one of the best ways to change the mood and energy in your home, and you can do so with simply the touch of a button when your lights are controlled by a home automation system.
You can set up different lighting “scenes” and easily switch from one to another. You can have a lighting scene for an intimate dinner party, and another one for a casual get-together, and still another one for family movie night. The options are pretty much limitless.
You can also set up your lighting to have an “away mode,” so when you are out of town, it can appear as if someone is still home. Or, you can have a “good night mode” that allows you to shut off all of your interior lights with one touch of a button on your smartphone or touch panel.
Setting up your exterior lighting to come on and turn off at certain times is also easy to do.
If you’re like most Orange County homeowners, home security is one of your top priorities. There are many great home security products on the market that allow you to monitor your home from anywhere in the world, but when you work with a whole home automation company in Orange County like Good Sounds, you can integrate your security system with all of the other systems in your home, and control them all from one place.
Bringing your home’s audio and video systems under the control of a home automation system is what can really set your home apart. Just like with lighting, you can set up audio scenes for different occasions. You can have background music playing while you’re in “work mode,” or popular music playing in “party mode.” You decide what type of music you want to play in what areas of your home, and you can easily change it at any time.
Being able to control your home’s heating and air from your smartphone or tablet means never having to come home to a cold or hot house again. It also means you can easily adjust your thermostat from anywhere in your home. And if you forgot to adjust your thermostat before leaving on vacation—no problem! You can do it from the road.
Smart appliances are some of the latest innovations in smart home technology that have many Orange County homeowners excited. And it’s no wonder—who wouldn’t want to start their coffee pot from their phone before they even get out of bed? Or set their washing machine to run at the time of day when energy rates are the lowest? Or be able to see what’s in their refrigerator while at the grocery store? All of this, and more, is now possible!
Pool, Spa & Water Features
Your home’s pool, spa, fountains, or water walls are more areas that can be easily controlled from your smartphone or touch panel. Imagine being able to turn on your spa’s heater as you head home from dinner out, or being able to turn on the fountain in your courtyard from anywhere in your home right as guests are arriving.
