Commercial Services, Part 3

on Wednesday, 15 April 2015.

We have discussed commercial security, automation, and lighting control. This last blog is all about our commercial services with boardroom technology, digital signage, and networking.

A company's boardroom is a crucial component in any office. It gives clients a first impression of your establishment and serves as a common area for ideas and innovation to flow. If a company has an outdated boardroom, their capabilities become seriously limited. It is important to make sure your space is updated to accommodate today's technological demands and capabilities. We can help you provide to your employees and clients a great meeting space. From video conferencing, to a possible training area, all with easy use of your whole boardroom space with one remote. Every office deserves a great boardroom. 

Also, a lot of businesses these days are beginning to discover the many uses of digital display technology. Digital signage/video walls are a great way to get a particular message across - whether for advertising, selling or information display – chances are you want a solution that does a lot of the foot work for you. These high impact displays can certainly pack a visual punch, but equally, they serve as an effective business tool, and can strengthen a range of operations within your business.

Digital signage/video walls can be changed in a flash so you will always be able to bring announcements to your audience ASAP. Before, you would have to design poster displays, have them made, spend a decent amount of money, and have it displayed in enough time that it is still relevant. Digital display technology allows you to change your message instantly, and pass along news, events or sales at a moments notice.

Commercial Services, Part 2

on Thursday, 09 April 2015.

In last week’s blog we talked about how commercial security could give a business owner peace of mind knowing their property and employees are safe and secure. This week we want to discuss how some automation can help with the daily office tasks in a business.

Commercial automation for a business can be a simple or complex system; it all depends on the business owner and what they want. For example, as a business owner, you could disarm your security system, unlock the door, and turn on the lights all by one touch of a button on your smartphone. Furthermore, you could even adjust the HVAC unit to the optimal temperature while you are in or out of the office. Not only can automation can help a business owner manage their office remotely from any smartphone or iPad, it can also help manage energy efficiency of the office, too.

For instance, shade and lighting control can tie into your automation system very easily, and help with energy savings. If you have an office with many floor to ceiling windows, shade control can help maintain the heat/cooling of the office without constantly turning the HVAC unit temperature up or down. Also, lighting control motion sensors can help with energy savings as well, but lighting control can go beyond just turning on or off a light.

While still being energy saving conscious, lighting control can help create ‘scenes’ for certain areas of your business office. For example, you showcase your company’s work on the wall; why not create an illuminating scene for when guests and potential clients come in. Make your work noticeable and eye catching.

Also, many office waiting areas are either too dim or too bright, creating a dungeon like area or a stark clean hospital welcome. Well, if you have a waiting area; why not create an inviting and warm welcoming scene with lighting control!

If you have a great security system, but need a little commercial automation to help in your daily office tasks, call us at 865-690-0154. We are here to offer YOU better life solutions.

Commercial Services, Part 1

on Wednesday, 01 April 2015.

At iSS, we provide an extensive amount of services to homeowners. From security to automation and everything in between, those services can also be provided to any business owner and their establishment. As a business owner, one of the most important things should be the security of your property, and most importantly yourself and your employees.

The basics of commercial security should first and foremost be an adequate alarm system. For example, we suggest that the best security system for any commercial property would be a sufficient alarm system with alarms, motion sensors, and security cameras. With cameras in and around the establishment, as a business owner, you can remotely log into the video feeds from anywhere on your smart phone or tablet to check on the property.

Furthermore, a business establishment should have key codes/cards for employees and visitors, this way you could manage employee and visitor access. Such as where only management should have access to certain areas, or to check on who came in and out on a specific day.

Lastly, exterior lighting is another step in providing security to any business property. For instance, exterior lighting goes a long way to provide security for your business, but also the safety of you and your employees. By using motion sensors and light timers, they can offer more visibility in multiple directions and stop a potential burglar when lights suddenly flip on if they are snooping around.

If you are business owner, and feel that your business is not adequately equipped with the best security system, give us a call and we would be happy to help. Also, be looking for our blog next week about some of the other commercial services we provide!

Media Rooms

on Tuesday, 24 March 2015. Posted in Home Theater

Media rooms and home theaters are an increasingly popular feature within a home. Two major benefits are that they boost a home's entertainment value as well as its potential resale value. A media room is designed to be a multifunctional space, and most media rooms are an upstairs family room or the basement man cave. What is great about a media room is that it is a wonderful way to spend time with your friends and family and yet showcase what your home can do. Between audio, video, and possibly having some home automation in the mix can create a fantastic entertainment area.

Popular locations for media rooms are places that are self-contained, quiet, and will not interfere with the day-to-day operations of the home when in use. Once you have decided on a location for your media room, it is time to start thinking about details for the audio-visual (AV) and design requirements. Also, internet access would be recommended in a media room, as streaming video and multi-player gaming are more popular features these days.

Choosing the right size TV or projection screen is a must—you don't want to overwhelm guests with a screen that is too big for the space, or feature one that is too small and does not provide enough cinematic feel. Ultimately, size matters for any media room—the room's dimensions will go a long way toward determining the size of the TV or projection screen needed, the scope of the lighting system, and the number of speakers required for your sound system. With any media room you want to get the most sound coming towards you. Many media rooms are open areas and again multifunctional, which means distractions can come around very easily. So as a homeowner, you want to make sure you are creating a space that is easy on the eyes as well as easy on the ears!

Now just think, you have the best entertainment area, but are having to turn on the lights, the audio, and the screen all separately. What if you could turn on everything with just one touch of a button? With home automation you can! Whether you want your media room to be more simple or wanting to go all out in a sports inspired theme, home automation can bring everything together perfectly and exactly the way you want it.

In big projects like these, it is always best to call upon the professionals. So, if you have been thinking about turning that boring basement or additional room into something special, give us a call and we would be happy to help! We are always here to offer better life solutions.
