Enable Your Smart Technology to Work Together for Your Benefit
If you already have a whole-home automation system installed on your Rye, NY property, you know how much easier smart technology makes managing your home—and if you don’t, you’re missing out. A home automation system makes controlling your smart technology simple in a variety of ways. In this blog post, we dive into how setting “scenes” can help you make the most of your smart technology and make home management even less of a burden. Keep reading to learn more.
What Are Scenes?
When you integrate all of the smart technology on your property with your home automation system, you can make different devices work together seamlessly to take comfort and convenience to the next level. A scene gives you the power to control multiple devices based one command triggered through sensors, schedules, an on-wall keypad or mobile app. Below we highlight some of the most popular ones among our clients.
Good Morning Scene
A good morning scene can include opening the automated shades to let the morning light in, slowly turning on the lights in the bedroom and bathroom and turning up the thermostat to ease you out of your warm bed as you start your day.
Create an away scene for your smart technology when you aren’t home. When you’re leaving for work in the morning, hit the away button, and all interior lights will turn off, your shades will close, climate control will be set to an eco-friendly mode and your security system will be activated.
Use outdoor scenes to enjoy the smart technology in your backyard. When you’re ready to enjoy an afternoon of soaking up the sun with your kids, your outdoor AV system can start playing an upbeat playlist. As the sun begins to set, your outdoor lighting system can activate so that the outdoor areas of your property are well-lit.
This scene is the opposite of the good morning scene. The goodnight scene prepares your home for the night, activating your security system, locking your smart locks, closing your shades, lowering your thermostat and dimming your lights to prepare for restful sleep.
Get the most out of your smart home technology by utilizing scenes with your home automation system. Don’t have a home automation system yet? Soundworks can design one that meets your requirements and make the installation a seamless process.
