Smart Tint® – Switchable privacy film™
Control-it Smart Home Automation is pleased to announce we are now an authorized provider of switchable film. Our affiliation with Smart Tint®, the leader in switchable film technology, will allow us to provide our clients with superior options for security and privacy.
NEW! ALEXA MEETS CONTROL4!
Control4 personalizes a smart home by coordinating connected devices throughout the house into pre-set scenes to set the mood, create ambiance, and provide convenience. For example, using the Control4 skill for Alexa, a “Cooking” scene can raise the lights in the kitchen, lower the shades, and turn on the TV to a preset food channel – all with a single voice command. Additionally, a verbal “Alexa, turn off the house” command can shut down the house by turning off all of the lights, lowering the thermostat, locking the doors, and arming the security system.
Home automation takes movie watching to an entirely different level by integrating the products and services you already have into one seamless, awe-inspiring experience. Start the movie, dim the lights and set the temperature with the touch of one button. Automatically raise the lights to 50% when the movie is paused so you can make that quick trip to the snack bar in safety. When someone comes to the door, automatically pause the movie and see who is there on your touch screen without ever leaving the couch. We offer Houston Smart Home solutions including Home theater installations.
A network is kind of like a referee in sports, the better it is the less you notice it. When was the last time you thought about your internet connection? It likely wasn’t when you streamed a movie uninterrupted on Netflix or sent an email to your secretary. It was probably when your Blu-Ray player wouldn’t connect to your Hulu app or your Facebook wouldn’t load on your computer.
It’s the same with smart home automation. You’re not going to notice how well your AV system communicates with your security system or how well your control system handles network traffic unless it becomes a problem. And it is our job to make sure those problems don’t arise.
Monitor and manage your home from anywhere you have an internet connection! Provide your kids or family members with unique codes and you can get text alerts when they are coming and going. And on those days when nothing goes right, it’s easy to let yourself in when you forget your keys. We offer Houston Smart Home solutions including home security systems.
- Anywhere, anytime access with 24/7 home monitoring and control from anywhere you have an Internet connection or 3G/4G service.
- Receive security or event alerts no matter where you are.
- Control locks, lights and more from your iOS/Android smartphone or tablet.
- Smart Locks replace standard “dumb locks” to become part of your home security integration.
SMART SHADES & BLINDS
Utilizing daylight reduces our need for electric light, and saves energy. Shading systems provide precision control of daylight – all at the touch of a button.
- If you have a room that receives sunlight at a particular time during the day, install shades that automatically lower to help keep your home from getting overheated.
- During the winter, custom programming can raise the shades to catch the daylight and close them for privacy in the evening. Your Control4 system knows exactly when the sun rises and sets every day year-round, so you won’t have to adjust the schedule as the days get shorter and longer.
Accent your home’s design with stylish lighting, make it more energy efficient, safe and secure, and leverage the magic of automation by integrating smart lighting. We offer Houston Smart Home solutions including lighting automation.
- Set the Mood~Enjoy the ability to customize and add one-touch lighting scenes whenever the mood strikes, right from a Control4 Touch Screen.
- Control the light and shade levels in a single room or throughout your whole home.
- Activate dimmed lighting from ceiling fixtures, and trigger pendant and track lighting.
- Customized “Movie” and “Music” buttons can be used for instant entertainment. One press dims the lights, lowers the shades, and selects the correct A/V inputs to commence the movie of your choice.
Heating and cooling your home can be expensive—especially if your HVAC system is cranking when it doesn’t need to be. Let your smart home orchestrate the proper set of functions to ensure optimal temperature efficiently. Shades raise or lower based on time of day, fans can turn on and off to help circulate air, and the AC or heat can turn on just before you arrive home, welcoming you back with the perfect temperature.
Home automation from Control-It Home Automation makes your outdoor spaces more comfortable, more secure and more fun.
- Heat up the pool or hot tub from your smartphone.
- Create stunning lighting scenes in the back yard to showcase your beautiful landscaping.
- Automate porch, patio and yard lights to save energy or set a mood.
- Use motion sensors, lights and alerts for late-night security.
