Let Innovative Sight & Sound turn your home into a Smart Home. We are proud to offer our installation services to the entire Charleston SC area.
A well-designed and implemented home automation system is nothing short of a digital concierge putting you in total control. This includes your lighting, security system, climate/thermostats, window treatments such as blinds and shades, pool and spa, and of course your media room or home theater.
An automation system makes controlling all of the various systems in your home easier and more efficient. Using a touch panel, remote control, or even a smart phone or tablet, full control of your environment is at the tip of your fingers. Here are a few of the technologies that we implement.

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 controllable 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 you’re 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.
