Innovative Wins Smart Home & Home Theater of the Year

Innovative was honored to have one of our amazing projects chosen as both the Smart Home of the Year AND Home Theater of the Year by CEPro Magazine. 

This is a top-in-class, premium project in every imaginable way. The interior and exterior of this home features the best in quality technology from brands like McIntosh, Bowers&Wilkins, Wisdom Audio, Sonus Faber, and more. 

The team at Innovative had the opportunity to partner with an amazing client on this project to bring a vision for a technological oasis at this beachfront home to life. 

Every aspect of technology in this home has been meticulously engineered, installed, and programmed to provide seamless integration of technology into every room. Control 4 + Josh.ai provides the backbone for automation and control of the house for audio/video distribution, climate control, lighting control, motorized shades and drapes, security, and outdoor entertainment. 

Everything is intentionally connected and designed for lifestyle convenience no matter what room or what occasion. 

This home features a custom home theater featuring Samsung’s 146″ Video wall, a gaming setup for all platforms, a home gym with Wisdom Audio, and a home office command center. 

Truly, this home experience is a showcase of what is possible with premium technology and design from Innovative.

The idea behind home automation is to make your life easier. See yourself arriving home, arms full of groceries and with the press of a button on your key chain you disarm the alarm, turn on the lights, even start your favorite TV show.

EFFICIENCY

Charleston Smart Home Control4

CONTROL4 HOME AUTOMATION

Control4 is the leading home technology company in the industry.  At Innovative Sight & Sound we use their products exclusively as they offer quality products, high performance, reliable solutions, and the best price.  This has enabled us to become the most trusted Control4 home automation system installation company in Charleston.

We design and build centralized systems using Control4 that keep all of your equipment in one central location that is out of sight and easy to service.  These components are then distributed throughout the various rooms of your home.  This helps reduce the impact of electronics components on the decor of your home and also reduces the amount of equipment you need to own.

Tired of dealing with multiple remotes to control your home entertainment system or home theater?  We can integrate your audio video and home theater system into one simple-to-use remote or touchscreen device.  This makes watching your favorite movie or TV show as simple as the press of a single button.

Our systems are designed to enhance your enjoyment of your space.

AUDIO VIDEO & HOME THEATER

Tired of dealing with multiple remotes to control your home entertainment system or home theater? We can integrate your audio video and surround sound system into one simple-to-use remote or touchscreen device. This makes watching your favorite movie or TV show as simple as the press of a single button.

Innovative Sight & Sound specializes in implementing whole house audio video systems. Gone are the days of multiple pieces of electronics in each room. We design and build centralized systems that keep all of your equipment in one central location that is out of sight and easy to service. These components are then distributed throughout the various rooms of your home. This helps reduce the impact of electronics components on the decor of your home and also reduces the amount of equipment you need to own. Your favorite recorded shows, movies, and music will be available in any room you like from the living room, to the gym, to the master bedroom.

Imagine easily listening to all of your favorite music from any room in your home. Your favorite streaming sources can be accessed from any remote, touchscreen, or smart device. Enjoying your favorite music has never been easier. It’s only the touch of a button away.

Want music in every room in the house? No problem, simply select the rooms you want and the music you want to listen to and you’re ready to go. Our systems are designed to enhance your enjoyment of your home.

LUTRON INTEGRATED LIGHT CONTROL

Lighting systems can simplify and enhance the look of your home. Replace the large banks of switches on your walls with an elegant keypad that can operate every light in the room.

With a Lutron solution 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.  Our experienced team can design and install a solution that fits your budget and needs.

An automated system replaces these banks of switches with a simple and elegant keypad. Not only does this cut down on wall clutter, but it also allows you to use your lighting to enhance the interior details and architectural features of your home. One keypad can control anything from a single light, to an entire room, to the whole house.

In addition to simple “ON” and “OFF” functions, each keypad can be pre-programmed to carry out multiple “scenes”. Perhaps you’re entertaining tonight, simply press the “Entertainment” button and all the lights in the house can be set to a pre-determined level. Ready for bed? Press the “Sleep” button on the keypad next to your bed and all of the lights in the house will be turned off for you. You can even have a few lights stay on for security purposes.

Outdoor lighting can also be added to your system to enhance both the look and security of your home. And just like the interior lights they can be controlled from any keypad, remote, or smart device.

We use Control4, Colorbeam, and Lutron lighting products.

CLIMATE CONTROL (HVAC) INTEGRATION

Integrating your thermostats into your system allows you to adjust 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.

Integrating your heating and cooling system into your smart home system delivers convenience and significant energy savings.  Quickly and easily set the temperature for any room in your house using a smart phone, tablet, or touchscreen remote.  Our automated thermostats are completely programmable, allowing you to set the schedule for each climate zone in your home.

Since your entire home is accessible via your phone or tablet you can even control the temperature of your home while you are away.  Perhaps you left on vacation but forgot to turn down the air conditioning.  No problem, simply open your control app and set the system to vacation mode from wherever you are in the world.

MOTORIZED SHADES & BLINDS

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

Help lower your cooling costs by having your shades and blinds automatically close during the hottest parts of the day.​

– Automate Shades, Blinds, & Curtains

– Wireless Options​

Innovative Sight & Sound offers a full line of motorized shades to suit both your design needs and lifestyle. Automated shades can lower and raise based on the time of day, keeping your cooling costs down in the summer. Shades are simple to operate and are integrated into the same keypad as those used to control your lights.  This allows you to quickly and easily change the amount of natural light in any given room with the touch of a button.

Shades can also be used protect valuable furniture and artwork from damaging rays of the sun.

CONTROL YOUR POOL & HOT TUB

Smart home technology allows your pool and spa to be controlled with the press of a button. This allows you to have full control of temperature set points, pump, and cleaning.

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

Luna Surveillance Camera Mobile App

INTEGRATED SECURITY and SURVEILLANCE

When it comes to your family, security is a high priority.  Integrating your security system with your smart home allows you to monitor everything from one app on your smart phone.

Arming and disarming your alarm is just the start.  You can also automate lighting in the event of an emergency such as a fire or home invasion.  We also provide video surveillance solutions.

Our smart homes allow you to leverage your home’s security system to create even more peace of mind.  You can monitor your home from anywhere inside the house, or from anywhere in the world.  Need to disarm the system while you’re out of town to allow someone into the house?  No problem.  Simply hop on your smart phone or tablet and you can disarm the system in seconds.

Integrating your security system also allows you to control lighting functions based on alarm events such as a fire or intruder.  If your system detects either, it can turn on the lights, potentially scaring off a burglar, or giving you light quickly.

If you’re working with an existing room we can help you work through the acoustical challenges that often come up when adding a surround system.

FUNCTIONALITY

The idea behind automation is to make your life easier. See yourself arriving home, arms full of groceries and with the press of a button on your key chain you disarm the alarm, turn on the lights, even start your favorite TV show.

EFFICIENCY

Automation integrates all the independent systems in your house allowing for more efficient use of all the systems. And the best part is, we handle everything. We tailor a system to your specific lifestyle needs.

Tired of dealing with multiple remotes to control your home entertainment system or home theater?  We can integrate your audio video and home theater system into one simple-to-use remote or touchscreen device.  This makes watching your favorite movie or TV show as simple as the press of a single button.

Gone are the days of multiple pieces of electronics in each room.  We will be your one-stop audio visual consultant.

In addition to our home theater installation services, Innovative Sight & Sound specializes in implementing whole house audio video systems.

We design and build centralized systems that keep all of your equipment in one central location that is out of sight and easy to service.  These components are then distributed throughout the various rooms of your home.  This helps reduce the impact of electronics components on the decor of your home and also reduces the amount of equipment you need to own.  Your favorite recorded shows, movies, and music will be available in any room you like from the living room, to the gym, to the master bedroom.

Imagine easily listening to all of your favorite music from any room in your home.  Your CD’s, MP3’s and of course your favorite streaming sources such as Pandora and Rhapsody can be accessed from any remote, touchscreen, or smart device.  Enjoying your favorite music has never been easier.  It’s only the touch of a button away.

Want music in every room in the house?  No problem, simply select the rooms you want and the music you want to listen to and you’re ready to go.  Our systems are designed to enhance your enjoyment of your home.

Light plays a crucial role in our world. Nothing can impact the ambiance in a room as quickly as the lighting. Automated lighting systems have become an essential part of today’s high end homes. They deliver a wide range of benefits and conveniences that improve both the look and functionality of a home. Standard lighting requires banks of light switches that must be turned on and off manually.

An automated system replaces these banks of switches with a simple and elegant keypad. Not only does this cut down on wall clutter, but it also allows you to use your lighting to enhance the interior details and architectural features of your home. One keypad can control anything from a single light, to an entire room, to the whole house. In addition to simple “ON” and “OFF” functions, each keypad can be pre-programmed to carry out multiple “scenes”. Perhaps you’re entertaining tonight, simply press the “Entertainment” button and all the lights in the house can be set to a pre-determined level.

​Or perhaps you’re ready for bed? Press the “Sleep” button on the keypad next to your bed and all of the lights in the house will be turned off for you. You can even have a few lights stay on for security purposes.

Outdoor lighting can also be added to your system to enhance both the look and security of your home. And just like the interior lights they can be controlled from any keypad, remote, or smart device. We use both Control4 and Lutron lighting products.

Another popular feature of today’s smart home is automated shades and blinds.  Natural light can help enhance the look of any room but in the South it can also cause your energy costs to skyrocket.  Automated shades can lower and raise based on the time of day, keeping your cooling costs down in the summer.

Innovative Sight & Sound offers a full line of motorized shades and drapery to suit both your design needs and lifestyle.  Shades are simple to operate and are integrated into the same keypad as those used to control your lights.  This allows you to quickly and easily change the amount of natural light in any given room with the touch of a button.

Drapes, shades and blinds can also be used to enhance security and energy efficiency.  If you’re away on vacation your system can be programmed to make it appear that someone is still at home all while reducing the amount of sunlight entering the home thereby lowering the ambient temperature.  Shades can also be used protect valuable furniture and artwork from damaging rays of the sun.

Integrating your heating and cooling system into your smart home system delivers convenience and significant energy savings.  Quickly and easily set the temperature for any room in your house using a smart phone, tablet, or touchscreen remote.  Our automated thermostats are completely programmable, allowing you to set the schedule for each climate zone in your home.

Since your entire home is accessible via your phone or tablet you can even control the temperature of your home while you are away.  Perhaps you left on vacation but forgot to turn down the air conditioning.  No problem, simply open your control app and set the system to vacation mode from wherever you are in the world.

Luna Surveillance Camera Mobile App

Who isn’t concerned about home security?  Our smart homes allow you to leverage your home’s security system to create even more peace of mind.  You can monitor your home from anywhere inside the house, or from anywhere in the world.  Need to disarm the system while you’re out of town to allow someone into the house?  No problem.  Simply hop on your smart phone or tablet and you can disarm the system in seconds.

You can even check your security cameras while you’re at it.

Integrating your security system also allows you to control lighting functions based on alarm events such as a fire or intruder.  If you’re system detects either, it can turn on the lights, potentially scaring off a burglar, or  giving you light to quickly and safely exit the house.

Make Your Home a Smart Home

What is A Home Smart?

A true smart home is a home that features multiple technology systems all connected together by a central control platform. A smart home makes your life more convenient and your home safer, more comfortable, and easy to enjoy by integrating together your lighting, security system, climate/thermostats, window treatments such as blinds and shades, pool and spa, and of course your home entertainment system.

BENEFITS OF A SMART HOME

Home Automation
  • Simplicity – is what home automation is all about. Imagine adjusting the lights, the climate, even browsing your personal music library all from one simple to use remote.  Control4 offers the best home automation systems on the market in terms of cost and reliability.
  • Functionality – The idea behind home automation is to make your life easier. See yourself arriving home, arms full of groceries and with the press of a button on your key chain you disarm the alarm, turn on the lights, even start your favorite TV show.

Elements of A Home Smart

Charleston Smart Home Control4

Control Everything

A well-designed and implemented smart home system is nothing short of a digital concierge putting you in total control of nearly every aspect of your home.

A smart home also gives you multiple ways to control the technology systems in your home. A wall mounted touchscreen, a remote, a tablet, mobile phone, or voice assistant – any of these devices provide you access and control to all the connected elements in your home.

From anywhere, you can control audio/video, lighting, climate, security, and more.

Custom Lighting Keypad Control4

Smart Automation

A true Smart Home is programmed to automatically and intuitively sync with your lifestyle.

For example, if your home faces the sun rise, a smart home will know to lower the motorized shades of the east facing windows and make sure the thermostat has the temperature at the desired level. If you leave in the evening, a simple button press on a keypad will lock the doors, arm the security system, turn on exterior lights, and make sure garage doors are closed.

Automation is about aligning the technology systems of your home to your lifestyle.

Your Media, Available Everywhere

Tired of dealing with multiple remotes to control your home entertainment system or home theater?  We can integrate your audio video and home theater system into one simple-to-use remote or touchscreen device.  This makes watching your favorite movie or TV show as simple as the press of a single button.

Imagine easily listening to all of your favorite music from any room in your home. Apple Music, Spotify or your favorite podcast can be accessed from any remote, touchscreen, or smart device.

Enjoying your media has never been easier. It’s only the touch of a button away – simply select the rooms you want and the media you want, then you’re ready to go.

Climate & Comfort Control

The battle of the thermostat can finally be won. Cozy up with climate control the entire family can agree on! Smart scheduling, voice control capabilities, even integrations with shades and fans. It’s your home, only more comfortable.

Integrating your heating and cooling system into your smart home system delivers convenience and significant energy savings.  Quickly and easily set the temperature for any room in your house using a smart phone, tablet, or touchscreen remote.

Smart Home Control and Security

Security Integration

Imagine how secure you’d feel if your home sent you real-time notifications, alerted you to guests at the door, and even turned on lights and TVs while you’re away to deter home invasions.

Our smart homes allow you to leverage your home’s security system to create even more peace of mind.  You can monitor your home from anywhere inside the house, or from anywhere in the world.  Need to disarm the system while you’re out of town to allow someone into the house?  No problem.  Simply hop on your smart phone or tablet and you can disarm the system in seconds.

You can even check your security cameras while you’re at it.

Integrating your security system also allows you to control lighting functions based on alarm events such as a fire or intruder.  If your system detects either, it can turn on the lights, potentially scaring off a burglar, or giving you light quickly.

Voice Control

Voice Control has become a staple of everyday life. But the depth of that integration has been lacking…until now.

Innovative uses Josh.AI connects you with all the smart devices in your home. Using your voice, Josh can turn on and off your lights, change the temperature, play music, and more, whether you’re home or away. Josh is built to understand natural language and learn from you as time goes on.

Josh is also big on privacy and will never use client information for marketing purposes or sell user data to third parties. Unlike the mass-market voice assistants, Josh’s sole focus is on providing the best smart home experience possible.

Lifestyle Convenience

What is Lifestyle Convenience?

Headed towards bed, what do you do?

✅  Make sure inside lights are off

✅  Make sure outside lights are on

✅  Turn thermostat to desired temp

Get in bed…then wonder…

❔Did I lock the front door? Back door?

❔Is the alarm turned on?

❔Did I shut the garage door?

And the list could go on. And this is the routine that many people close every day with.

With a smart home automation system, all these various home systems are now connected.

This gives you total control over these home systems from a tablet, smart phone, or keypad.

But beyond this centralized access, is the ability to custom program these systems to work in concert with each other to suite your lifestyle patterns.

Now a simple press of a custom button like “Home Off” can automatically arm your alarm system, lock your doors, turn on outside flood lights, turn off interior lights and electrical components, and set the temperature at the desired level.

This just one of so many possibilities, both manual and completely automated, that our systems provide clients in their lifestyles.

Lifestyle Convenience…it is about practicality and simplicity.
