Charleston's Top Rated Home Automation Company

A smart home automation system allows you to control everything in your house through one simple interface that can be accessed through a touchscreen, smartphone, or tablet. Everything from audio video, lighting, climate, security, and motorized shades can be controlled with the touch of a button.

We are Charleston's Top Smart Home & Home Automation Experts

These are important benefits. But a well designed system goes even further. By integrating these systems together we can further leverage them to create a home that is more energy efficient, more secure, and more enjoyable for you and your family. To learn more click on any of the headings below.

Integrated Lighting Control Systems

Lighting control systems simplify and enhance the lighting of your home. Replace the large banks of switches on your walls with an elegant keypad that can control every light in the room. You’ll never have to remember which switch controls which light again. Simply press the “On” button and every light in the room comes on to a pre-programmed level.

Here are just a few of the benefits of a lighting system:

  • create beautiful scenes that highlight architectural features or important pieces of art.
  • turn all the lights in the house off with the touch of a button
  • in an emergency such as a fire lights come on automatically lighting a path to safety.
  • when you’re on vacation, a lighting system can make it look like your still home
  • lower your overall energy usage

Climate (HVAC) Integration

Integrating your thermostats into your smart home system allows you to control the climate throughout the house using one simple interface. Set temperatures, adjust schedules, and monitor your system from anywhere in the world.

We can even install occupancy sensors that allow your home to turn off rooms that are no longer in use. Here are a few more benefits:

  • quickly adjust temperatures and schedules
  • increase efficiency and reduce your carbon footprint
  • turn air conditioning off automatically when doors or windows are left open.

Motorized Shades and Blinds

By integrating your shades and blinds into your system you can further enhance energy savings and security. During the hot days of the Charleston summer direct sunlight can cause temperatures in your house to increase dramatically.

A control system can monitor sunlight and close motorized blinds and shades during the hottest part of the day. This can reduce heat transfer and also reduce your energy costs.

Shades and blinds also enhance your home’s privacy and security. They can be programmed to raise and lower at specific times of day when you’re using certain rooms. And while you’re out of town they can be lowered to reduce the chance of prying eyes.

Control Your Pool & Hot Tub

Your pool and spa can also be integrated into your smart home system. This allows you to have full control of temperature set points, pump, and cleaning control. Imagine the ability to login to your system before you leave work and turn on the hot tub so it’s nice and hot by the time you get home

Or maybe you’ve gone on vacation and need to check to see that it’s turned off. It’s all right at the tip of your fingers.

Energy Management

Do you have solar panels you would like to monitor? We can integrate that into your automation system too. You can see how much energy your producing at all times.

We can also install smart devices that save you money on electronics your not using. Phantom power loss is very real and is often as much as 10% of a home’s energy usage. It results from electronics being left in “standby” mode. Smart outlets can shut these devices off until they are needed, saving you money each and every month.

Home Theater Installation

With almost a decade of experience installing surround sound, custom home theaters, whole house audio, and high end audio systems, we have perfected the science of providing the technology our customers desire while preserving the carefully designed and crafted look of their homes.

From the beginning of the project we work closely with your architect, builder, and interior designer to ensure a smooth installation that meets your home entertainment needs.

This is why we use only trusted brands with proven track records. Our manufacturers include Sonos, Bowers & Wilkins, Rotel, and Lutron.  Our home theater installation team has the experience and the know-how to build the surround sound system of your dreams.

Media Rooms with Surround Sound

Just because you don’t have a dedicated theater room doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy everything your favorite movies and music have to offer. Let us turn your living room into a high performance media room. We can deliver theater-like sound while only minimally impacting the look of your decor.

Options include everything from bookshelf speakers and in-wall speakers to speakers that are completely invisible. If you’re ready for the high performance cinema experience you’ve always wanted, call us today for a free in-home consultation.

Hidden TV's & Speakers

Hiding your TV behind a mirror or a favorite piece of art is another way to ensure that the technology in your room doesn’t overwhelm the decor. We carry lines from Seura and Art Screen that allow you to hide your plasma TV or LCD when it’s not in use. They are the perfect complement to hidden in-wall speakers.
