Not too long ago, home automation was really only present in high-end Orange County neighborhoods. However, today, products like smart thermostats, smart home security systems, and smart appliances like coffee makers and refrigerators are commonplace in Orange County homes of all sizes and in all types of neighborhoods. This is because smart home technology is becoming more and more accessible and affordable. Many products can be purchased in retail stores or online and installed by the homeowners themselves.
These retail products have come a long way in terms of functionality, especially in the last few years, and have given many homeowners a taste of the benefits that smart home technology can provide. But there is still a portion of the population that is looking for more—homeowners who want fully integrated, customized home automation systems. In other words, they want systems that are designed with their specific needs in mind and can consistently perform at the highest level.
That is what Good Sounds provides to our Orange County customers.
Custom Home Automation Systems
The types of home automation systems our team designs and installs are customized to each Orange County home and its homeowners’ lifestyles. Since no two homes are the same and no two families have the same needs, we think every system should be different. We also believe that a custom home deserves a custom smart home system.
Before we start designing your system, we will meet with you in your home. We will discuss what you are looking for in a smart home system and how you would like it to function. Some Orange County homeowners are looking to turn their homes into an entertainment hub for family and friends. They may want things like a high-end distributed audio system, amazing outdoor lighting, and a state-of-the-art home theater—all of which can be easily controlled. Another homeowner may be interested in a home security system that is easy to operate, whether they are home or away. Their system may include features like smart motion sensors, remote monitoring systems, smart locks and garage-door openers, and programmable lighting systems that make it look like people are home, even when they are away.
When you meet with the Good Sounds team, you don’t have to know exactly what you need or want in a smart home. There is probably technology out there that you don’t even know exists! We are happy to make suggestions and give you ideas, based on what we learn about your family, your lifestyle, and what is important to you. We have worked with many Orange County homeowners to design systems that were beyond what they ever could have imagined!
Fully Integrated Smart Home Systems
If you’ve dabbled with smart home technology in the past, you are probably used to having multiple devices, remotes, control panels, and apps that control the various systems in your home. You may have a smart thermostat on your wall, an all-in-one remote that controls your television and sound system, an app that adjusts your lighting, and a smart speaker like a Google Home or Amazon Echo device that can help you with a wide range of tasks around your house. All these items, which were supposed to make your life easier and make certain tasks more convenient, can start to feel like clutter.
With a fully integrated smart home system designed by Good Sounds, you can control all your home’s systems from a single interface. That interface can be accessed on a device like a tablet or smartphone, or from a wall-mounted touchpanel. What is more, the interface will be customized just for you. The way it looks and the way it functions will be designed in a way that works best for you and your family. We firmly believe that having a home automation system should make your home life easier—not more complicated. Our designers are experts in creating interfaces that are intuitive and easy to use, even if you aren’t necessarily a “tech savvy” person. If you have a device that you like or are already familiar with, such as a certain type of tablet or smartphone, we can likely design your interface to be accessed on that device.
Home Automation Systems Suitable for High-End Orange County Homes
In our more than 35 years in business, Good Sounds has been designing and installing home theaters, AV systems, and more recently, smart home systems in high-end homes throughout Orange County. We have worked with CEOs of well-known companies, professional athletes, A-list celebrities, and other homeowners who are interested in the benefits that a professionally designed and installed system can provide. We can meet the needs of even the most discerning customers.
Smart homes designed and installed by Good Sounds can be found in homes throughout Orange County, in areas like Laguna Niguel, Newport Coast, Newport Beach, Corona del Mar, Coto de Caza, and more. In fact, there are very few high-end neighborhoods in Orange County that we haven’t worked in during the past 35+ years!
We use products that are not sold in retail stores or online, but are only available to professionals. This means, when you work with Good Sounds, you get access to the latest high-end smart home and home automation technology. We know our clients expect the best, so we are constantly researching new products that are introduced in the high-end smart home and residential AV markets. That being said, we don’t always recommend the latest products on the market. Instead, we take our time to make sure new products will actually benefit the homeowners we work with and will perform well over time. Sometimes, the tried-and-true products that have been around for a while are still the best products available for high-end residential applications.
Whether you are building a new home from the ground up, adding a home automation system to an existing home, or wanting to upgrade the system you already have, Good Sounds can help. We believe home automation and smart home technology can add to the feeling of luxury in any home and greatly enhance your quality of life.
If you’ve been considering adding a fully integrated and customized home automation system to your Orange County home for a while now, don’t let any more time go by before you contact us at Good Sounds for an in-home consultation. We would love to tell you about all the options that are available and put together a design that meets your specific needs.
