Have you ever noticed that when you open your car door, a light automatically comes on? And isn’t it convenient to be able to lock or unlock the door at the push of a button? Wouldn’t it be nice if your house was as smart as your car? That is what an Evolved Home is. A home with some intelligence. After all, isn’t it about time our homes moved into the 21st Century?
Whole House Audio and Video
How would you like to be able to watch any of your DVR’s or DVD players on any TV in the house? How about stream digital music outside for a party, or into the Kitchen when you are cooking? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could listen to something different than your kids? Maybe you have a ton of great music on your iPod, but don’t always like to listen with headphones on. How about streaming your iPod content throughout the house? An Evolved Home makes all this possible and more. OK, what other new tricks can my house learn?
Control all of the lights in your home with an in-wall touch screen or a remote control. Schedule your front porch light to automatically come on at Sunset, dim to 50% at bedtime and turn off at Sunrise! Program lighting scenes to control several areas at once. Dimming your lights is not only easier on the eyes, but is easier on the pocketbook as well. Dimming your lights by 50% can save up to 40% in energy and make your bulbs last 20 times longer! Finally, your house can be as smart as your car. Actually smarter, because it will only turn on your front entry light if you open the door after dark. I’m starting to like this Evolved Home thing… what else can it do?
Advanced Temperature Control
A Control 4 wireless thermostat can be easily adjusted from your TV screen or the remote control. It can be put on a schedule that matches your needs. Heck, you can even adjust it remotely over the Internet!
Safety and Security
If you were away on a trip wouldn’t it be nice to be able to check in on the house? Now your Evolved Home has eyes, (OK they are actually web cameras) that can show you what is happening when you’re away. We can connect to many security systems to enhance your security and comfort. Wow, my house could do all this?
Automation – The Only Limit is Your Imagination
You may not want to get me started on this topic. I could go on forever. Well, I suppose a few examples will suffice.
An Evolved Home can talk to you. (Well, sort of. It can send e-mail alerts to your office or phone when certain events happen) -Time Stamp 3:17pm: “Your kids are home from school” –
An Evolved Home can close the drapes when the house gets too hot, or turn the water feature by your front door on and off at preset times, or show who is at the front door on your TV screen when someone rings the doorbell, or…………… You get the idea.
Yikes! Sounds Great, But Can I Afford Any Of This?
That’s the really cool part. Not only has the cost of this type of automation come down dramatically, the system is modular, allowing you to add new capabilities over time. Many of the components are wireless, and can be installed without having to run new wires. Now, even mere mortals can enjoy the benefits of an Evolved Home. Contact Us today for a free consultation.
