3 Things to Look for in a Home Automation System
360 Media Designs Smart Home Systems that are Simple, Safe, and Secure
There are a number of smart home automation systems available on the market today designed to fit a host of needs. 360 Media Innovations offers options like Elan G! and Crestron for a system that is customized to fit your lifestyle.
Your smart home automation system can be an all-encompassing entertainment system, an energy-saving green home, or have a focus on remote monitoring and security. Whatever the system, 360 Media knows the most important aspects are that it works, fits your budget, and that you can easily use it. What else should you look for in a smart home?
Simple and User-friendly Interface
The majority of smart homes today can be accessed through an app on a tablet or a smartphone, as well as an in-wall keypad or touch panel. No matter how you connect with your system, the interface should group all functions of your home in one location, not a myriad of separate apps. This interface should also be simple enough to use so even Grandma and Junior can turn off the lights or access their favorite tunes-without the use of a manual.
Secure And Reliable Operation
The central nervous system of your home can’t afford to have any downtime. Custom designed home automation systems share the unique ability to expertly unite communication protocols to truly making life easier. Instead of relying on cloud servers to host essential functions, professionally installed technology remains up and running even when the Internet goes offline. These systems are also built on integrated networks which are not only more reliable, but more secure.
Scalable and Expandable Design
Many often begin to customize their homes with full control of one room, such as a multi-purpose media room or the installation of one or two total home systems. Lighting and climate controls are two systems that naturally pair well together. Once homeowners become accustomed to the controls they typically add-on additional rooms and features. Whichever smart home system you choose, it should be ready-made for easy expansion to fit your needs now and in the future.
When you think about the possibilities of your home automation system, imagine the everyday tasks that would be made more efficient.
