Smart Home Automation

Systems for music, video, lights, climate and security have become more intelligent enabling you to easily operate them from a smart phone, tablet, keypad, or touch panel using a smart home automation system. Effortlessly listen to your favorite music from any area of the home with a single button press or set the lights and shades to create ambiance for entertaining in your open concept kitchen and living area. From your mobile device while at home in Highland Park or away you can view surveillance cameras, unlock the door if your child forgets the key, or set the temperature. Smart home technology adds convenience, comfort, and peace of mind. It’s pretty cool too! Solutions available for new construction and existing homes.

 

Integrated Systems

Avidia specializes in integration of multiple systems that can be either just monitored and able to create alerts (flood detection, temperature monitoring i.e. wine cellar or freeze alert, surveillance system) or fully controlled (security and access control systems including gates and garage overhead doors, climate, lighting, pool and spa, lawn sprinkler, blinds and shades).  There are multiple choices when it comes to user interface devices whether you're using a Crestron or Control4 system. They come in form of handheld remote controls, in-wall or wireless touch panels and mobile device applications (for iPhone, iPad and the like). That means you can easily control your home from within or on the go.

 

Lighting Control

A custom-tailored home lighting control system allows you to change the mood of any area of your Wilmette 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. In a smart home automation system, smart lighting control also contributes to a safe environment by linking with the security system to turn all lights on if uninvited activity is detected. Lighting control systems save energy. New construction or upgrade - let us create a lighting solution perfect for you.

 

Motorized Window Treatments

With motorized window treatments you can easily adjust the amount of daylight in your home to increase comfort, save energy, and protect interiors. 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 with the simple press of a button. Clients and designers have hundreds of window treatment fabric and color options available to compliment any décor.

Climate Control

Smart climate control makes it easy for you to set the perfect temperature in your Winnetka, Illinois home regardless of the season or other conditions. Create a comfortable environment by making adjustments from the same touch screen you use to control your lights, shades, and home av. Monitor and control your thermostats from a mobile device if you left your AC blasting when you left home or turn up the heat before you return on a cold day. Heating and cooling your home can be expensive and our climate control solutions save you energy with programmed settings and integration to a home automation system.

 

Pool/Spa Control

An automated pool or spa system provides added convenience and enjoyment whether it’s your primary or second residence. No more running outside to see if the pool is the right temperature. You can turn on the heater or the cleaner as you drive home so your pool or spa is ready for you to take a dip after work or the long journey to get to your vacation home. Maintenance is easier and equipment life is extended with preset programming for pumps, cleaners, lighting, waterfalls, temperature and monitoring. Operate water features including fountains and waterfalls from the same control interface or have them intelligently programmed to suit your lifestyle.
