Outwit Your Smart Home!

Significant design problems and frustrating user experiences created the desperate need for affordable solutions that make it easy for everyone to control everything. Crestron Home pledges to make the complex simple: The monotonous automatic; the tedious quick. Whatever you want, wherever you are, it’s a tap. The simplification solution, according to Brilliant™, is an in-wall touchscreen control system that is as simple as swapping out a light switch to install and connect a couple of complementary smart devices to.  Schneider Electric Square D systems are designed to protect the system from surges, while monitoring and increasing efficiency of each and every connected item.

Swidget separates the base device (outlet or switch) from the modular smart control insert so you can easily upgrade your functionality as new technologies emerge or your needs change.

Besides selecting the right integration partner and preferred system, it’s important for the home to have the right switches and plugs, wiring and WIFI capability.  For devices you are still going to have to hardwire, IROVF is an “all in one” fiber optic SMART CABLE that fits in a half- inch conduit, consolidating all your wires in one.  Wireless protocols such as Zigbee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth LE do away with the need to install complex and expensive whole-home electrical systems just to control your smart home system remotely.

Finally, it’s important to have a plan for eliminating “wall acne.”  Whether it’s a thermostat, light switch, iPad, surveillance camera, Wi-Fi access point, or control touchscreen, the same amenities that deliver convenience, comfort, and efficiency can clash with a home’s architectural and interior style.
