Focus On Energy Efficiency

Climate change is the biggest global emergency of our lifetime, and everyone should be doing their part to cut down on energy consumption and reduce their carbon footprint. Smart lighting, motorized shades, and automated climate control systems all work together to lower how much electricity you’re using to illuminate and cool down your home. Having a multi-faceted home automation system makes energy management simple. Occupancy sensors are increasingly popular, shutting off or dimming lights in vacant rooms so that you’re not wasting power.

Wellness Technology

Smart technology manufacturers have noticed how much consumers value devices that help improve their personal wellness, so there has been a considerable push for products that make users feel more invigorated. We've written quite a bit about circadian rhythm lighting in past blogs, and it’s a feature being pushed by manufacturers because it can help residents be more productive at the start of their day and relaxed at the end of it.

But that’s not the only wellness devices available right now. Smart sleep lights feature motion-sensing sleep tracking technology that gives you data on different aspects of your time sleeping like turning, breaks, and duration, and wake-up lights lull users to sleep and gently wake them up. Smart air purifiers assess air quality in real time with sensors that search for volatile organic compounds, which activates purification technology that eliminates airborne particles.

Fortify Your Home with Lock and Sensor Control
The bigger the home, the more potential weak spots in security, and it can be difficult to make sure you’ve locked every door before leaving the house. Control4 allows you to access all the locks and sensors on your property, and if you’ve accidentally left a door unlocked, all it takes is a tap to lock it again. Do you tend to leave your garage door open? A Control4 system can be programmed to shut it automatically if it’s lifted for an extended period, and that time frame is easy to change if you need to keep the door up longer. Check out the video below to see just how simple it is to keep track of locks and sensors with Control 4.

 


 
Automatically Activate Lights and Sound to Ward Off Intruders
The quickest way to get a burglar off your property is to let them know they can be seen, and sensors around the home can turn on lights and sound if they detect a human intruder. Flashing lights and a message warning that you’ve contacted the authorities will stop the trespasser before they reach your door. Remember the scene in Home Alone when Kevin sets up an elaborate fake party in his house to fool the burglars? It’s possible to achieve the same effect with far less effort thanks to home automation, and Control4 can be programmed with a lighting scene that makes your home appear occupied if you're away on vacation. You could even incorporate audio to sell the illusion further.

Keep an Eye on Your Property with Surveillance Cameras
Seeing real-time footage of your property is the best way to monitor it, and setting up security cameras lets you know if there are any unwanted visitors on the property. Because privacy is an increasingly important concern, Acadian can also install a trustworthy Firewall to ensure that no one has access to this network except for authorized users. Cameras can be installed both inside and outside your home, and the video below showcases how Control4 serves as a central hub to navigate each different surveillance sector.

 


 
These are just a few of the many features Control4 offers to enrich your Lafayette smart home, and you can contact Acadian Home Entertainment to learn more about their services from Louisiana’s most acclaimed Control4 dealer.
