Connected Home

If you’re using smart devices and have a smart home automation system, you’ll be living in a connected home environment that offers convenience, flexibility, and an enhanced lifestyle. We’ll work with you to determine which technologies need to be connected on your network, wired or wireless, to meet your needs. This may only be some components or it may be everything from HDTV, IPTV, media servers, lights, shades, security, VoIP phones, appliances, and your control system. In all cases, the connectivity will be reliable and secure throughout your Lake Forest, Illinois home. 

 

Networking

A network is a home’s central nervous system for all communications and control. We’ll help lay a solid and reliable foundation that’s robust for today’s technology and for tomorrow’s. We will work with you to find a complete networking solution that satisfies all of your system needs including your TV, telephone, music, security, control system and mobile devices that are connected on the network in a smart home. A high-speed and secure network provides the functionality and protection you desire.

Network Security

We coordinate with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to provide reliable and high-speed connectivity for your home technology system. Firewalls are engineered for maximum protection and in some cases, a redundant backup ISP is recommended to ensure uninterrupted service. We provide ongoing support and deliver diagnostic services remotely. Elevate the security of your network with enterprise-grade equipment from routers, switches and access points. Enjoy the freedom and peace of mind to use your laptops, wireless touch screens, and smart devices throughout your Winnetka home with a secure and reliable connection to your network.

 

Intercom Systems

Conveniently communicate from room to room from the same touch screen or wall control used to manage your automation or home AV system or choose an aesthetically pleasing intercom system. Wired and wireless home intercom systems for voice or video are available. Experience crystal-clear sound and picture along with ease of use. Let the kids know dinner is ready without having to shout loudly, check to see who’s at the front door, or relay an urgent message throughout your Glencoe home if there is a fire. If you have a busy home, we can support multiple conversations at the same time.

Motorized shading and drapery transforms harsh glare into soft pleasing light, enhances privacy while preserving exterior views, reduces solar heat gain, provides UV protection of expensive furnishings and artwork, and provides the ability to change daytime into nighttime for restful sleep. Clients and designers have hundreds of window treatment fabric and color options available to compliment any décor.

Mobile Control:

Imagine added convenience using your mobile phone or tablet as a remote for easy control of your smart home automation system. Control multiple locations, such as a primary residence, vacation home and office, from a single, intuitive graphical interface that provides real-time status of room temperature, shade position and lighting levels.

Lighting Control:

Lighting control allows you to change the mood of any area of your home to suit the occasion. Whether watching TV, dining or entertaining, one press of a button can create the ideal atmosphere you desire. For example, press ‘Goodnight’ to turn all your lights off or “Pathway” to light the way downstairs. Increase safety by linking with the security system to turn all lights on if uninvited activity is detected. Lighting control systems save energy.

Energy Management:

With real-time monitoring, you can have a dashboard display of your home’s energy usage to see where it’s being used efficiently or inefficiently whether you’re home or away. Control systems optimize energy consumption while maintaining comfort. Easily access and make adjustments of your electrical, water, and gas usage to save energy. See calculated savings and the reduction in your carbon footprint in response to your adjustments from dimming lights or lowering the temperature.

Security and Surveillance:

A safe and secure home for your family needs to be smart enough to alert you when you’re home or away. Preview streaming video from security cameras right on your touch screen display or iPad®, iPhone® or Android™ device. At home, use your touch screen as a video intercom system so you can see who's at the door. While you're away, disarm alarm systems to let in the housekeeper or babysitter, then activate it as soon as they leave.

Home Theaters and Media Rooms:

Maximize your entertainment system whether you have a precisely designed dedicated home theater or an exhilarating and functional media room. Many spaces in your home from living rooms, family rooms, master bedrooms and outdoor patios can be recreated into a multi-purpose media room, concealing a home theater that only reveals itself at the touch of a button. We can engineer hidden screens and speakers that descend from ceilings, hide inside framed artwork, or rise from specially-designed furniture.

Entry Systems:

Our entry systems can be standalone or integrated into your phone system so that when someone rings the doorbell, your phone rings. You can pick up to speak to the visitor, or press a button to open the gate. Add video capability, and you can see who’s there. Or program your doorbell to pause the music system or provide notification on your TV so you never miss a ring. Access can be controlled with magnetic door locks, biometric fingerprint access, and perimeter barriers such as gate control.

Media Distribution:

Media distribution systems send audio and video content to any room in your home via a media matrix switcher. Locate your AV equipment out of site, yet distribute the content to all areas of your home without worrying about the clutter of finding a place for local source gear in each room. Control your music and video content from any control interface such as your iPad®, iPhone® or handheld system remote.

Centralized Distribution:

Centralized Distribution allows for complete control and connectivity of your home technology for every room, every application and every budget. The power of total integrated control and seamless connectivity all manifest from one centralized hub. Your home’s beauty is enhanced with less wall clutter and equipment spread throughout. System expansion is easy; every room and each smart device is simply another node on the network which is the backbone of the home.

Solar Panels:

Create an eco-friendly home and reduce electricity costs by harnessing the true power of the sun with solar energy. Residential solar panels or solar modules are used as a component to a larger photovoltaic (PV) system to generate and supply electricity to residential applications throughout the home including lights, HVAC, appliances and other electrical devices. This renewable energy solution is reliable and will reduce your ever-rising utility bills and almost no impact on the global climate.
