You can now have a fully-integrated home using Crestron control systems. For example, you can wake up in the morning and the lights on your side of the bed turn on, without disturbing your partner. You can preheat your bathroom and then watch your favourite channel on TV, without fumbling for switches or a remote.

Even when you are away from home you will receive email notifications and pop-up alerts on touch screens, thereby keeping you in sync with your home. You can even view security cameras remotely for enhanced safety, or simply to check up on the kids. When you are traveling back home, you can set the temperature and lighting for your preferred ambience, so you can always enjoy being home.

If you want to watch a movie with family and friends, you can set the mood instantly. Control multiple audio and video sources with a handheld remote. The latter can also lower your shades, dim the lights and lower the projector screen for an awesome and immersive movie-watching experience. A smart home automation system easily integrates technology from all of your favourite brands.

When you are finished with your day, you can relax with your favourite music throughout the house. You can enjoy the customisable nighttime presets to ensure that your shades are lowered, the lights throughout the home are turned off and that every lock is secured. You can schedule this process every night at the same time, or do it all instantly at the touch of a button. You can also control all of these with a touch of your iPad.

What you can do with a home automation system

A perfect home automation system integrates audio, video, lighting, and shades seamlessly. You can have perfect sound and images in your home theatre.

So, do create your very own smart home and enjoy customised audio, video, lighting, shades and much, much more. All of these systems are increasingly integrated and almost invisible. So, here’s to a fantastic smart home and home automation experience!
