Technology is supposed to make our lives easier. So, if you’re like many Americans, you often feel busy, tired, and stressed due to all the small tasks that add up throughout the day. Maybe you could use the help of a Crestron smart home system.
Managing any household is difficult, let alone multiple properties, but a smart home designed by a Crestron dealer ties all your technology into one intuitive system. In just a few swipes on your phone, you can turn on lights, raise the thermometer, and skip a song over whole-house audio.
But Crestron isn’t one size fits all. Read on to discover all that a Crestron Home automation system can do for your Vail, CO, property.
Unlike many other smart home companies, Crestron manufactures its own smart home products out of its New Jersey headquarters. Their range of electronics is designed to fit together in one easy-to-control system that can also integrate with tech made by Amazon, Google, Lutron, Sonos, LG, Samsung, and more.
With Crestron Home, you can use your smartphone, tablet, touch screen, remote, or voice-assistant to control:
Even if you’re across town or hundreds of miles away, you can remotely check on your home, turn technology on and off, and activate a scene through the Crestron app. At home, everything is consolidated into one remote, a sleek keypad on the wall, and one app.
With most smart home applications, what you see is what you get. But Crestron dealers program systems themselves and can modify the interface to suit your property’s needs. On the Crestron Home app, commands may be re-named, for instance, and we can eliminate commands that you don’t think you’ll ever use. That way, there are fewer options in the way to avoid confusion.
Button commands can be customized, too. For instance, a single “Tap” can shut one room’s technology off, while “Press and Hold” can turn off the entire house. Your Crestron control panels can also turn to ‘Dark Mode’ at night, which is especially useful in home theaters and bedrooms.
The same thing happens every day—the sun goes down, and we need to turn on the lights. What if your home anticipated this for you? Crestron Home can be programmed to turn on indoor and outdoor lighting automatically based on the sun’s rotation. But that’s not all.
Crestron’s smart lighting feature also lets us customize not only when lights activate, but also how they look. In the afternoon, we can set lights to illuminate in warm, golden tones, aligning to your natural circadian rhythm. Why? Well, when we’re surrounded by lights that are too bright and cool at night, it can cause us to have trouble sleeping. Before bedtime, lights can gradually dim to 30 percent in the bedroom, encouraging your mind to become sleepy with a much-needed melatonin boost.
We can automate other home technology to a clock, too. Thermostats, motorized shades, and just about any electronic device can be scheduled to activate at a specific time. You won’t have to dart around the house turning things on and off. Crestron has you covered.
It’s time to start living your best life. Contact Aurum, a certified Crestron dealer based in Denver and Vail, CO, to discuss a smart system tailored to your lifestyle. We look forward to helping you!
