Home Automation Solutions
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.
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.
Home 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.
Components of a Smart Home
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 home entertainment system.
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.
Audio Video And Home Theater Control
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.
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.
Our systems are designed to enhance your enjoyment of your space.
Automated Lighting Control
Light plays a crucial role in our world. Nothing can impact the ambiance in a room as quickly as the lighting. Automated lighting systems 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. 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.

Motorized Shades and Blinds
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 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.

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. 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.
Security System 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.
Pool & Hot Tub Control
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
