Professional Home Networks Offer Optimized Performance and Security

Seamless Connectivity

While a reliable network is an increasingly critical component, we continue to put greater demands on it. Today, nearly every device in a house comes with connectivity options. In addition, the IoT (Internet of Things) continues to expand to include an ever-growing list of electronics such as media dongles, toys, appliances, and light switches. 

The demands of constant connectivity can easily overwhelm a network. The result is slow page loads, interruptions, lag, and the dreaded buffering message while watching your favorite show or the big game. Instead, a data network should operate seamlessly in the background, never calling attention to itself. 

The Best of Both Worlds

WiFi gives the freedom to enjoy devices and media without the hassle of wires, indoors or outside. Wireless communication does have its benefits, but its reliance on over-the-air signals has its limitations. 

The frequencies used for wireless networking are prone to interference from other WiFi-enabled devices and even a neighbor's network. Because anyone within the range of a router can receive the transmission, there is a greater chance of illicit access by hacking.

Enjoy a Luxurious Lifestyle with Smart Home Automation

The Domino Effect

All your intelligent systems are connected to your home automation platform and each other. This enables them to work together, creating the perfect setting for various times of the day and activities. For instance, many clients enjoy waking to sunlight filtering through shades slowly rising. Their 'Good Morning' playlist gently nudges them, streaming through nearly invisible in-ceiling speakers. 

As the day advances, the shades on south-facing windows lower, reducing solar heat gain and the strain on HVAC systems. At the same time, the lighting in occupied rooms adjusts, maintaining the perfect level of illumination. Like a domino, one system affects another, creating the perfect atmosphere.

A Home That Welcomes You

Geofencing creates an invisible boundary tripped by your smartphone. This enables your smart home to start preparing for you as soon as you pull into the driveway at the end of the day. In response, it illuminates your landscape and first-floor lights, turns on your ‘Welcome Home’ playlist, adjusts the temperature, and heats the spa.  

A Space for Entertainment

Many clients incorporate distributed audio-video systems that deliver the best entertainment over the same platform. All the AV gear is tucked away in a closet and distributed to every 4K HDR TV and in-ceiling, bookshelf, and floorstanding speaker. These systems deliver superior, high-fidelity sound and stunning video to every room and are effortlessly managed with one touch.
