Enjoy Comfort & Convenience with a Fully Integrated Home Automation System 

So, you’re thinking about making your house a “smart home.” Maybe you’re interested in saving energy or the convenience automation provides. If you search the internet for smart home solutions, you’ll often come across DIY devices like Wi-Fi connected thermostats, voice speakers, and smart plugs that promise to make your house smart. 

While these devices can be useful in a small scale, they’re not the most effective way to build a fully automated home. Instead, professional home automation systems like Control4 can seamlessly control all of your home’s systems, even across multiple properties, from lighting to security to the home theater. 

Below, we’ll explain the difference between DIY smart devices and an integrated home automation system so you can make the best decision for your University Park, TX home.

Controlling Your Whole Home with One Smart System

See How Convenient Life Becomes with Smart Home Control 

Remember the days before smartphones? To travel, we’d consult paper maps or print directions from MapQuest. We made calls on our phones but took pictures with a separate camera. And to listen to music, we’d plug headphones into an iPod or mp3 player. We used a different device for every action, filling an entire bag with what today is consolidated into a single smartphone. 

Today, you can apply the same consolidation to your daily life with a smart home system. Rather than use separate remotes, apps, and wall switches across the house, all of your home’s subsystems can be synced into one easy-to-use controller like Savant. 

Savant is a home automation system that controls lighting, AV, thermostats, security, and more, creating a comfortable and convenient home experience. To see what it would be like to live with Savant in your University Park, TX home, read on to discover the benefits.

Lighting Control Systems: What Do They Do & How Do They Work?

How Lutron Levels Up Your Home’s Lighting 

New smart LED lightbulbs like Philips Hue let users adjust the bulb’s color while toggling on and off over a smartphone app. But a complete lighting control system like Lutron is much more sophisticated than a single smart bulb. Lutron systems let you control every lighting fixture and motorized shade in your house, automating the atmosphere automatically through sensors and schedules. 

With a lighting system, you won’t have to take out your app every time you want to use a bulb and change the color. Lutron knows your preferences and will adjust the lights based on your routine, responding to voice commands or pre-programmed scenes. 

How does Lutron work? As a certified Lutron dealer, we’ll share all you need to know about total lighting control below. And to learn more about installing Lutron lighting in your Dallas, TX home, contact Texadia Systems here! We’re always open to new home projects.

voice-control-is-here-heres-what-you-need-to-know

Learn Why Josh.ai Is A Superior Voice Command Assistant

Home automation makes Fort Worth living much more luxurious. With just a tap of a finger, smart devices throughout the home awaken to meet your needs; motorized shades lower to block out glare on the TV, and lights dim to set the mood for a romantic dinner. The ease of controlling your Texas home goes beyond a homeowner’s fingertips, though, because voice control is here.

The smart speakers found at big-box retailers have inundated the market, making Alexa, Siri, and Google household names. While helpful, the companies are known for sharing your information with third parties and using it for marketing purposes. This leaves most homeowners uncomfortable but feeling stuck – they want the ease of voice control in their homes, and they see the loss of privacy as a requirement. That’s not the case anymore with Josh.ai!

To learn more about voice control and other smart home innovations, join our mailing list, and read on below to understand how the innovative natural language assistant, Josh, elevates voice-assisted automation in new ways while additionally protecting your data and respecting your family’s privacy.

Understanding Home Power Management to Protect Your Devices

We don’t usually give much thought to the energy that powers our homes. We flick on the lights, open the refrigerator, and turn on the TV without a thought. But there are several reasons a home energy control system can be vastly beneficial to homeowners. For one, it will make your AV and automation technology last longer, protecting your devices from surges and problems when the power goes out.
