There are two aspects to communication in smart homes. The first is the ability for you and the members of your household to communicate with each other, and with anyone who may come to visit. The second is the ability of the home itself to communicate with you—to give you information you generally need right away.
Complete Home Control...
You can start with just one room or automate your entire home all at once. Turn your house into a smart home:
Program a perfect "Wake-up" scene featuring your favourite music, opening the shades, brightening the lights and even automating the thermostat for just the right tempreture setting to help you (and the kids) get out of bed.
A "Goodbye" button locks the doors, arms the security system, turns off all the lights, and adjusts the temperature on your way out.
While away, a moisture sensor can alert you if there is a water leak detected in the laundry room or get notified when your child arrives home from school via an automatic text message or email.
Curious if the kids are doing their homework after school? Set your system to alert you if the TVs or gaming stations are turned on. Or set them so they won’t even turn on during designated study time.
A “Goodnight” button can turn off all the lights in your home, locks every door, adjusts the thermostat and arms the security system without leaving the comfort of your covers.
Set motion sensors or pressure sensors to trigger nightlights when your kids get up in the middle of the night.
Be notified with flashing lights or an alert sound if people are moving about the house, or if doors or windows are opened after hours when they shouldn’t be
The “Announcement” system allows you to display a message on every TV and touch screen - “Come to Dinner!” or “Time to Leave!” buttons, or schedule an automatic “Good Morning” message that includes the daily forecast and current traffic conditions or plays alert sounds over every speaker. These messages and announcements are fully customizable, and can happen at different times in different rooms, and on specific days of the week.
From the Family room...
A single remote or touch screen provides you with complete control of your entertainment system. As the
movie starts, the shades close and the lights dim—automatically.
One remote controls everything: TV, receiver, music, streaming content, DVR, etc. That same remote also controls your lights, shades, temperature, music and so much more.
Integrate with IP cameras and security systems, video door station and doorbell-camera-microphone combination that will allow you to safely check out who's at the door.
Touch screens with video intercom lets you keep an eye on the baby as you watch a movie.
From your kitchen...
Send an announcement through your intercom and flash lights in the kids’ rooms when it’s time for dinner.
Initiate a “Cooking” scene to fill the room with upbeat music and bright light as you prepare a meal.
Dim the lights and change the music to let your guests enjoy their meal in a perfect ambiance.
Heat up the pool or hot tub from your smartphone.
Create stunning lighting scenes in the back yard to showcase your beautiful landscaping.
Automate porch, patio and yard lights to save energy or set a mood.
Use motion sensors, lights and alerts for late-night security.
