Home automation systems are designed to transform your older home into a modern masterpiece. A home automation system makes it easier to take care of several tasks around your house. The benefits include reduced utility bills, heightened security, and superior comfort.

What is Home Automation?

Home automation is the process of taking an average home and turning it into a futuristic living space. The process uses intelligence and some of the most innovative technology available today. A lot of different things can be automated around your home, such as watering the grass, locking the doors, or changing the temperature.

Better yet, home automation systems are intelligent enough to know when it’s time to divert from the schedule. For example, your sprinkler system can be set to skip a day if the soil moisture is already past a certain level. Sensors in the ground will measure the amount of water that’s already in your lawn and report back to the central system.

All types of sensors can be placed in your home and around your yard. That’s what makes home automation so unique– it goes beyond just scheduling tasks. After a while, your home will be able to use environmental data to keep everything just the way you like it.

How Home Automation Works

Home automation uses your established preferences to help you keep your home how you want it. The primary home automation system works as the brain of the operation, and other components all around your house and yard tie into it.

These components allow you to schedule events based on time or specific conditions. You can also use your phone, keyboard, and voice to change your preferences at any time.

Smart Homes

With San Francisco being so closely tied to Silicon Valley, the rise of home automation installations is perfectly understandable.  Performance Audio is taking on this exciting new area of consumer electronics and is ready to transform your space into a genuine “smart home.”

With everything from dimmers for lights to integrated remote control functions for home theater and audio components, we can put the power to control everything in your home at your fingertips.

Home Security

An additional aspect of home automation, and one that demands a high degree of technical proficiency as well as careful implementation, home security systems are have evolved past basic alarms and sensors.

Systems integrated as part of a home automation set-up involve cameras, remote operation of locks, and localized reports from specific sensors to identify break-ins.  As a critical component of your family’s safety, Performance Audio takes the greatest possible care when implementing these systems.

Technological advancement has made it possible for your home to have all your electronics built right into it. You can control everything using your cell phone or even your voice, from the comfort of your couch.

Protect Property at the Push of a Button

If you’re the type of person who often forgets to lock the front door or arm the security system, this technology will give you peace of mind. Next time you’re out of the house, you can use your phone to confirm that every door is locked and your alarm is armed. You can even check individual rooms to ensure that everything is in order.

The safety of your home and family is of the utmost importance, and now you can have the technology to keep your loved ones more secure than ever. You’ll be amazed at how comforting it is to have a constant and direct connection to all the safety features in your home.
