Useful & Fun Ways to Use Total Home Integration

Press a button, and every window shade in your home will lower. Or say, “Alexa, turn on outdoor lights” and watch your property illuminate for nighttime. As exciting as this all may be, smart home automation performs best when all of your technology and systems work together.

With total home integration through a Crestron smart system, you’ll be able to create settings that combine your audio, video, lighting, security, and more. In one command, it won’t be just one technology activating, but multiple devices. To discover all the possibilities for your Beverly Hills, CA home, read on below!

Leaving the House

If you’re leaving home in the morning or for an event in the evening, it can be a struggle to get out the door in time. But everyday routines become less of a hassle with automatic scenes. Press a button on your smartphone or tablet or tell your voice-assistant speaker to set for “away.”  At once, your lights will turn off, smart thermostat will adjust, and security alarms will turn on. If any speakers were playing music, they will pause. And if you’re leaving home for an extended period, you can arrange for your system to mimic the appearance of an occupied home. Lights will turn on and off every hour or so, and blinds will raise and lower. That way, if you’re away for a weekend or longer, your house won’t look dark and vacant for days on end. Criminals will be less likely to target your property if it looks like someone is home!

Party Mode

What’s home automation without a little fun? Prepare your house for gatherings in minutes with a premade party setting. Color tunable lights can shift to bright rainbow colors by the pool and adjust to warm, inviting amber hues in the dining room. Your party playlist will start playing across your whole home audio system, and jets will start in your hot tub. In the same instance, landscape lighting will blink on to guide your guests inside. When the night is over, simply turn it all off in one command.

Movie Settings 

Whether you’re enjoying an indie film in your home theater or sports in the media room, set your space for the perfect viewing experience with home automation. From your Crestron app, you can dim the lights, lower motorized shades, and turn on the speakers and screen in one setting. Small pathway lights can turn on to navigate the room in the dark. And to save space, you can even arrange for your screen to automatically lower from the ceiling or elevate from the floor.

If you’re in Beverly Hills, Future Home Theater can help you install and implement a smart system with custom settings like these. Whatever your needs are, we can help you feel empowered to take control of your home and continue to create settings in the future.
