Create Special Scenes
One way to make your home uniquely yours is to install one-of-a-kind fixtures, like chandeliers or modern-design lights. But you can also tailor your home with lighting control technology. Pair you lighting levels with other actions and then save them as a scene. All you have to do is open an app on your mobile device, select the brightness of light in the room you want to be in, and then add any other settings as well. Here are some examples:

“Good Morning Scene” – Wake up to the same scene every day by saving certain lighting levels. As your alarm goes off at 7 a.m. the lights slowly get brighter and brighter as the shades lift and the TV turns on so you can catch the morning news. You can wake up the whole house by programming actions for every room.

“Away” – Hit the “away” scene as you leave the house and all the lights turn off, the shades come down, and the alarm sets. By coordinating timers, dimmers, sensors, and these special scenes you’ll save a lot of money on utility bills and save energy.

“Movie Time” – It’s Friday and you want to unwind with a fun flick. Hit the “movie time” button and watch the lights softly dim all the way down to prevent glare on the screen, the shades draw, and the TV turn on to your favorite movie channel.

Install Custom Keypads and Dimmers
Though all of your lighting controls are easily accessible with an app on your mobile device, we can also install custom keypads on the walls so you can easily access any scene you like with the touch of a button. After all, it’s nice to have the best of both worlds – wireless access and physical controls. Your keypads can display a good morning scene, all off, all on, and also have a dimmer beside it so you can manually adjust it yourself. Our keypads come in various colors and styles so that they look beautiful with any wall color.

1. Maintain the Beauty of Your Home

If you have TVs in every room of your home, the entertainment stations are bound to get messy. Blu-ray players, soundbars, video game consoles and more clutter up the room and can be an eyesore. To create a beautiful interior design, you need a professional to intricately hide all of the equipment. We can install the speakers in the walls and ceilings, even make them completely invisible; encase the TV in a piece of stylish furniture or install a motorized lift in the ceiling; and keep all of the additional equipment in a closet. With our expert wiring and programming, we can place all of the hardware in a hidden location, and then all you need is a tablet, touch pad or phone to change the channels.

2. Simplify Your Controls

Smart home automation is all about uniting different technologies so that you can easily control them with one solution. We have smart remotes that can not only access all of your sources and channels, but can control the lights, shades, and even the intercom system. Or, you can simply place a tablet on the coffee table and open an app to set your scene for a movie or video game session.

With a whole house music system, you can unite all of your music – including your iTunes, personal CD collections, and Internet sources – then easily play any song you want. Beautiful album cover art displays as the song plays. You can create playlists and then marry them with other actions, like dimming the lights, to create scenes. Choose a name, like, “Sunday Funday” and then recall the same playlist whenever you like. You’ll never get frustrated trying to figure out the remote; even grandma can use it. Our control systems are intuitive and simple to navigate. So you can throw away all those remotes and just use one simple control device.

How to Protect Your New Orleans Home with Security & Surveillance Systems


Keep an Eye on Your Louisiana Property at All Times with a Security System

Everyone needs to protect their family’s most valued possessions; having a security system in place is not a question; it’s a necessity. But the type of system you have installed in your New Orleans home is crucial. Today’s security systems are incredibly advanced, but you may not know exactly what they can do. How do you know for sure that your system will do the job? Continue reading this blog entry to discover the latest advancements in security and surveillance systems.

Smart Surveillance Cameras
The surveillance cameras on the market right now have just as good of a picture as an HD TV, meaning you can see incredible detail in all the recorded footage of your home. Surveillance cameras can also be activated by motion sensors so that they only turn on when needed, and they can also capture images at all angles – 360 degrees around. You can view any camera footage in real time through an app on your smartphone or tablet, or look at the clips later when you get home. Get alerts sent to your phone or email anytime an intruder steps into your home. Captured video can be essential for insurance claims if anything goes wrong.

Smart Door LocksYou can lock your door and literally throw away the key with our advanced entry systems. Smart door locks allow you to type in a code to open the door, or use an app on your phone, so that you don’t have to carry a physical key with you. You’ll never have to hire a locksmith to open the door in case you lose it. You can even create multiple codes for various users and then change them at any time for additional security. Forgot to lock the back door but you’re already at work? Open up your smart home app and lock it instantly from miles away. If you have a front gate, we can install a swipe card device at the front to make entry fast and easy for residents.

Pair your smart locks and gate entry system with an intercom to screen visitors before letting them in. For example, if the UPS man stops by to drop off a package, you can get an alert that someone is at the door and then actually see them through your surveillance cameras. Talk to the UPS guy via the intercom and then let him in using the smart lock.

Alarm System
Smart locks and smart cameras do a good job of keeping an eye on your home at all times and securing the property, but an alarm system proactively scares away burglars. As soon as a window is broken or you receive an alert that a stranger is inside, the alarm system turns on with a loud noise and contacts the police. Our monitoring systems ensure that your home is kept safe at all times.
