Home Automation Shades and Thermostat Controls
Automated shades work for aesthetics, energy reduction, protecting furniture, and of course, the wow factor. Some of our clients only choose automated shading systems in their Home Theater room, but others choose to utilize remote shades inside the entire family room and common living areas. It is very typical for those who live in a high rise luxury residence to want shades in the common areas, at least. This way, they can have them programmed to slowly draw up and down accordingly as the brutal Houston sun makes its daily path through the sky. It certainly gives off the wow factor when you have your own automated shades drawing up just enough each minute of the day to block the appropriate rays of sunshine. A little overkill? You make the call.
Thermostat/HVAC Home Automation Control is definitely a must have in my opinion.
Imagine this: You own a second home or Lakehouse at an area reservoir like Lake Conroe, Lake Livingston, Lake Houston, Lake Travis, Canyon Lake, Galveston Beach, etc. and you are driving down to your second home on a Saturday morning in July. You get the kiddos loaded, the bags packed, the dogs fed, and finally hit the road. Have your navigator jump on the IPAD to turn the air conditioning down to the desired temperature well before arrival so that it’s nice and cool when you arrive. That just makes sense.
Other uses for energy management: You’ll want to lay in bed some nights and not dare step foot on the cold hardwood floor to adjust the thermostat to your desired temperature. No problem if you have you smart phone on the night stand next to you. Some homes also have upstairs and downstairs A/C units separate from each other. Most folks don’t want to walk upstairs to adjust the temperature every night, and you very likely don’t allow your kids to touch the thermostat more than once in a blue moon.
It’s just as great a benefit to be able to actually monitor your daily energy load with reporting features, so you can find ways to maximize use. This is another common reason people adopt our home automation systems for energy management.
