SES Design Group Helps Add Style, Value and Comfort with Technology Solutions
Whether you’re new to smart home automation or are considering upgrading your second property, the experts at SES Design Group excel at designing and installing solutions to fit your discerning tastes. In this edition of our blog, we highlight four high-tech features to properly furnish your home. With the right electronics, you’ll be ready to host summer get-togethers and help guests relax in blissful comfort.
1. Automated Lighting
No longer will you enter a driveway, garage or front entry way in darkness. With lighting solutions from Lutron, certain lights both indoors and outdoors can be programmed to turn on at a set time during the day. If your kids arrive home before you do, lights can illuminate pathways and front porches helping them safely make their way into the house. With lighting scenes, you can create the exact mood with just the touch of a single button. Imagine you’re hosting a dinner party, create a scene ahead of time that dims certain lights, lowers shades and turns on a preselected playlist.
Going out of town on business or pleasure? Give your home a lived-in look by having lights turn on and off at predetermined times throughout the day.
2. Integrated Security Cameras
If your home is like most, it’s a hub of activity. From birthday parties to barbeques, there’s always a host of people coming and going. With a home security camera system, you’ll be able to protect your property and monitor the kids and the pets. Using a smartphone or tablet, you’ll be able to watch a live video feed both of the inside and the outside of your home. By adding a security system, you may be able to save money on your homeowner’s insurance premium. Safety and savings are two attractive benefits of high-tech feature number two.
3. Automated Pool & Spa
Add convenience and enjoyment to your summertime routine by automating control of your pool and spa. Is the pool the right temperature? No need to run outside and check the water. Simply adjust the degree setting on your drive home so the water is the perfect temperature to take a dip after a long day at work. Then create automated settings for pumps, cleaners and lights to help extend the life of the equipment and make maintenance easier.
4. Motorized Shades
With shade control, you can effortlessly open and close blinds with the touch of a button. In addition, motorized window treatments allow you to adjust the amount of daylight entering your home, save energy, and protect interiors. With hundreds of fabric and color options available, there’s sure to be one that complements your home’s décor.
The way you control your shades, blinds, and window treatments can be tailored to your specific needs and preferences as well. Control options include wall switches, hand-held remotes, timers, and sensors. Using a remote control to operate the shades simplifies electrical wiring and eliminates the need for a switch.
