Wireless Audio Benefits

on Wednesday, 22 July 2015. Posted in Knoxville Home Automation

Rock till you Drop! Anywhere!

 

Today, when referring to wireless audio, most are referring to the ability to wirelessly deliver a song or music source from say, you’re iPhone, to the speaker.  Known as ‘streaming music’, this technology is a game changer and is now being done through numerous 'wireless' formats such as; Wi-Fi, mesh-networks, Bluetooth, as well as others. These new technologies are here to stay and have improved dramatically over the last few years.

If you have been waiting to purchase a wireless audio system until the kinks were worked out - now is the moment to embrace it.
Enjoy your tunes while poolside, cooking dinner, or anywhere you want!    

You can finally play your favorite music where you never thought possible! 

Ever dream of coming home after a long day and playing your favorite tunes in the kitchen while you prepared dinner? Or maybe you want to rock out while you work on the yard. Before, these things may not have been possible due to long wire runs, the age of the house, or just the logistics. Today, in mere moments, a wireless speaker can be installed in these locations (remember you still need power!). Pop a powered speaker (with wireless audio abilities) in your kitchen and after syncing it to your phone you’ll have music streaming through it in no time.

You can now afford music throughout your house.

Multi-room audio has notoriously always been sold as four or six room systems minimally. These systems require added planning while a house is being constructed, and are a large upfront investment.  Today's wireless audio systems, from companies like Sonos, allow you to combine speakers wired back to a central location (as in-ceiling or in-wall speakers) with additional stand-alone wireless powered speakers to create an entire home audio system. Bose is also a great option for stand-alone speakers!

The best part is, not only can these systems that are located in different parts of your house play separate things, they can also ‘talk’ and play the same thing everywhere without audio delays. Think holiday party with music filling the home beautifully. If you’re wondering how to control these systems, it is via an app off your smartphone or tablet.

You’ll be able to the play more stations then you ever thought possible

So if you’re craving an affordable audio system that will allow you to install a speaker anywhere and play more music than you ever thought possible, check out the new wireless audio systems of today. 

Currently our Deal of the Week is on the new Bose SoundTouch speakers so...

A Happy Holiday Season with a Whole Home Automation System

on Thursday, 11 December 2014. Posted in Knoxville Home Automation

Spending time with family and loved ones is what Christmas is all about. You may have to travel this holiday season and leave the comfort and security of your own home, but with a whole home automation system you do not have to worry about a thing.

Those never ending and worrying questions- Did I remember to arm the security system? Did I turn the heat down? Are all of the lights in the house taken care? Did I leave the garage door open? Are all the doors locked?

All of these questions can be answered with your whole home automation system and connection through your smartphone. While you travel this holiday season, take the stress out by knowing your home is secured while you are away.

For example, your bags are pack and you are pulling out of the driveway; a whole home automation can be securing your home. With one button pressed from your smartphone, you can simultaneously arm the security system, turn all the lights off in your home, lock your doors, and the temperature in the home gets adjusted. Also, if you have security cameras, you can view the live security video feeds from your smartphone or tablet. Allowing you to truly have peace of mind know your home is secured. You could also go a step further and adjust your lights and TV’s to come on at random times. That way it looks like your home, when you may be many miles away. Giving possible intruders a second guess.

While a whole home automation system can help you secure your home, it can also help you with energy savings. When you are not at home, you may not want the heater to kick in as often, and you may not want certain appliances to run or turn on. With smart home controls, you could change things up. For example, ensure that the power is off to certain devices, and cycle through energy cycles with relative ease.

Peace of mind, comfort, and security are the real benefits that comes through when smartening up your home. Worry less with a whole home automation system, and see what your home can really do for you. We hope everyone has a great Holiday season!

Home Automation for this Thanksgiving Holiday

on Tuesday, 18 November 2014. Posted in Knoxville Home Automation

It is that time of the year again. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and Christmas straight ahead. This Thanksgiving you may have your family and friends over for dinner or you might be joining someone else at their table. No matter what your Thanksgiving Day plans are, it is nice to have an extra helping hand around the house on such a chaotic day. A home automation system can make it easy to take care of your home while you are focused on good times, good food, and being thankful for what you have.

If you are hosting this year’s Thanksgiving, your home can help you reduce some of the holiday stress for you. Imagine your home helping you with cooking and entertaining in peacefulness. Some great helping hands in your smart kitchen would be:

  • Accessing your favorite recipes from your touch screen in the kitchen.
  • Program one-touch buttons for optimal lighting. One could be for “Cooking Prep” and another for could be for “Entertaining.” A press of a button, your lights will automatically go from cooking to dining that are more subdued and intimate.
  • Send a notification to the living room TV when the turkey has reached optimal temperature. Then alert everyone that the feast is ready!
  • Again from your touch screen, queue up the perfect playlist as your guests sit down in the dining room.

You could also have your shades automatically raise or lower, and fans automatically turn on and off, helping to circulate air. So your home will be at the perfect comfort for all guests, plus it helps you be energy saving conscience. Also, if you are having house guests staying with you for the Thanksgiving Holiday, you can assign them a temporary entry code with smart door locks. That lets them come and go as they please. Best of all, you can set it to expire automatically when they leave.

If you're joining friends and family for the holiday away from your home, a home automation system gives you peace of mind while away. When you are rushing out the door with side dishes in tow and the kids running around, you might not remember to lock the front door or arm the alarm system. A home automation system can make spending time with family on Thanksgiving more enjoyable because you have less to worry about. There is no need to sit at the Thanksgiving table wondering if you locked the door. Instead, you can just check and take care of it right then and there. A home automation system allows you to do that anywhere.

If the Thanksgiving fun goes on longer than expected or you decide to spend the night, you can use your home automation system to make it look like you are still at home by turning lights on and off. You can also adjust the temperature of your home to save on heating costs or to keep things toasty on a cold night.

Whatever you may be doing for your Thanksgiving holiday, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!
