One of the reasons smart technology has become so popular is that there’s so much of it now. Major players from a range of industries including Google, Amazon, and even Apple are getting involved in the game. So how can you decide which devices are the right fit? Set up a consultation with the experts at Surreal Systems who will have a thorough conversation with you to find out which technology solutions make the most sense.
Bring It All Together
Once you’ve decided what you want to include, we can help you put all of it under one platform. There’s no need to alternate between different apps or devices to manage lights, watch your surveillance footage, or change the channel on the TV. The best part? You can choose the control option you want to use or a combination of various ones. Access your new smart home automation system through dedicated touchpads, elegant keypads, mobile apps, and even voice commands.
Boost Your Network
Often the biggest issues when designing a smart home installation is that there’s not enough attention paid to the wired and wireless networks. All of these new devices will be communicating through it, so you need to make sure it can handle the load. We can add dual-bandwidth routers to increase capacity, wireless access points to extend the reach of your signal, and security measures to protect your network from hackers.
Go on Autopilot
Smart home automation systems are all about convenience. So why not lay back and let your home do all the work for you? Through scheduled scenes and sensors, the technology can anticipate your needs.
Want to cut down on your energy usage? Occupancy sensors turn lights off in unused rooms. Motorized window shades automatically close during the hottest hours of the day to help the space cool down. Time to get up in the morning? At 7 a.m. the shades open, lights gradually turn on, and music begins playing to help you wake up.
