Total Home Control Increases Comfort, Security and Energy Efficiency

Home automation allows homeowners to control all of their home’s electronic systems from one easy-to-use interface. Radis Electric specializes in premium home automation systems with a long list of satisfied clients in Santa Barbara, Hope Ranch and Montecito.

Interior and exterior lighting, heating and air conditioning, home entertainment systems, security systems, shading systems and even your door locks may be controlled through home automation.

When you leave to go on vacation your home’s settings can mimic your normal lighting patterns, alert you if there is a problem and even allow you to monitor your home from a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet.

If you drive to the store and suddenly remember that you forgot to close the garage door you can quickly check it on your smartphone and then close it. If it’s raining out you may want to cancel the day’s lawn watering.

With whole-home connectivity you will enjoy a variety of benefits that increase your comfort and security while saving energy and thus providing cost savings that will eventually offset the cost of the home automation system.

Energy Efficiency and Enhanced Quality of Life With Home Automation

Increased energy efficiency is a hallmark of home automation. At night you can change all of your home’s lights to a nighttime setting with just the touch of a button. Occupancy/vacancy sensors will turn the lights on when someone enters a room and off when they leave.

Home automation also provides convenience that enhances the quality of life. This can be essential for seniors or those who are disabled, lessening the need for caregivers or institutional care. Automated shading systems allow you to close or open your drapes with just the touch of a button, or adjust your home’s thermostat to the ideal temperature.

Enhanced home security can be achieved with home automation by ensuring that your exterior lighting is on. Even your home’s door locks can be controlled and with the touch of a button. Enjoy peace of mind by making sure all of your doors are locked at night with just a glance at a keypad.

Lighting Control Using Home Automation

Controlling your home lighting with home automation provides numerous benefits. Sensors can automatically turn the lights off when someone leaves a room and turn them on when someone walks in, resulting in considerable energy savings over time.

You can also turn the lights on or off even when you are away from home using a smartphone or tablet. With the touch of a button all of your home’s lights can be set to the perfect ambiance, or to the nighttime setting just before you go to bed.

Controlling Your Entertainment Systems With Home Automation

Using integrated home automation you can control multiple audio and video sources in the different rooms in your house. Begin watching a movie in your family room and then finish watching in your bedroom without any need to change a disc.

Enhanced Home Security Using Home Automation

In addition to total home lighting control including exterior lighting, home automation provides other options that will help you improve your overall home security.

Security cameras can be controlled and monitored on a remote wireless device from any location in the world. Motion sensors can detect unauthorized movement and notify you allowing you instant access to check on the situation. Home automation can also be used to notify you in case of fire, water leaks or gas leaks.

Integration of the home’s security cameras to a television screen allows you to see visitors when they arrive. With the touch of a button you can allow access to a visitor, or instead lock a door. You can program your whole house to lock automatically at night.

Home Automation Creates Smart and Comfortable Homes

By integrating your various home systems you can create a smarter and more efficient home, and a home that is more comfortable and secure. Temperature, lighting, entertainment systems, appliances and more can all be controlled from one easy-to-use interface.

Some other uses of  home automation include control of your pool heater, hot tub and spa. Even your sprinkler system can be controlled leading to water savings. Automatic pet feeding and water is also possible through the integration of your various home devices with your home automation system.
