The Four Main Benefits of Home Lighting Control

Saving Energy Is Just the Start

The Four Main Benefits of Home Lighting Control

What is home lighting control?  It can take many forms, from the use of simple dimmers in an area to full-fledged automation of inside and outside lighting throughout your house.  You might think that saving energy is a key benefit of lighting control, and you would be correct – but there’s more to it than that. 

There are several other reasons why you might want to invest in lighting control in your Lucas home.  And while you can start with just one room or area, the benefits compound if you extend lighting control to your entire house, inside and out.

Smart Home Automation Should Be Easy

3 Ways Savant Makes Home Control Simple

Smart Home Automation Should Be Easy

Our home automation partner Savant has made a name for itself in smart home automation by creating systems that are at once very powerful but also very intuitive to use.  Of course, what one person might consider easy to use can be another person’s nightmare.  Just ask a Microsoft Windows fan versus an Apple MacIntosh fan. 

Speaking of Apple, while not associated with the company Savant has been known as Apple-centric.  It was the first home automation company to launch an app on the iPhone; the user interface has a similar look and feel to Apple’s, and it uses powerful Apple Mac hardware in their Pro controllers.

People who like the ease, elegance, and intuitiveness of Apple products like the iPhone tend to like the similar polish of the Savant system.  What makes something intuitive and easy to use?  When it comes to software, and home automation, it’s the little details in design, flow, and navigation that count. 

Let’s take a closer look at some features that makes Savant smart home automation easy to live with in your Dallas home.

Tired of Your Tangles of Tech?

Three Reasons To Consider a Home Audio Video System

Tired of Your Tangles of Tech?

If you have a large home in Dallas, you may have acquired a large variety of AV entertainment equipment over time. Perhaps there are cable boxes in the family room and master bedroom. There is a Roku streamer in the kids’ playroom. There is a Sony smart TV mounted in your kitchen, and a Samsung Smart TV in your master bedroom (for Netflix and streaming). There’s an Apple TV in the media room for music and movie rentals. Each one of these has its own remote, interface, setup, and wired or wireless internet connection.

If you’re lucky, your home has built-ins that help hide the tangle of wires and all those boxes. But sometimes those cabinets weren’t designed for today’s flat-panel TVs, or don’t have adequate ventilation for audio equipment and cable boxes that can get hot with extended use.

Enjoying your audio and video entertainment shouldn’t be work. What if you had one intuitive interface to get to all your entertainment sources, in the same way, in every room? What if you could do it with one remote control, and not five? If you are thinking this sounds good, you might be ready for a home audio video system.

Just read on to learn more.
