Boost Your Home Theater by Integrating Home Control

You’ve probably heard some version of the old story about how it’s easier to break a group of sticks individually than it is to break them if they’re bound together. There’s a similar truth in the world of home automation: Systems work better when they’re integrated than they do as separate entities.

This is particularly true when it comes to setting up your home theater. To get the most from your home theater automation, you want to be sure that it is linked to the control system for the rest of your home. We’ve put together this blog to show homeowners along the Oregon Coast the benefits of integrating these systems in your house.

Keep Tabs on Your Home With Smart Home Security

Whether on Vacation or at Work, Know Your Home Is Safe

Keep Tabs on Your Home With Smart Home Security

They say that your home is your castle.  Just like the castles in medieval times, you want to keep your home safe at all times, whether you are there or away.  While castles relied on high walls and moats for protection,, you don’t have to protect yourself from an invading force.  You do want to keep an eye on your home and know when something is amiss.

Fortunately, we have more advanced technology these days to help keep our homes safe.  And while there are still standard home security systems that set off an alarm when some sensor is tripped, there are much more sophisticated options available.  We like to call it smart home security, and it’s available right now for your home in the Portland-Vancouver area. 

Smart home security takes advantage of home automation technology to help you know what’s going on in your home at all times.  Let’s take a look at some of these security features available from our home automation partner Control4.

Control4 Intercom Anywhere Puts You in Control of Your Smart Home

Manage Your Portland Home from Anywhere

Do you remember the old intercom systems that used to be installed in many upscale homes?   You could press a button and talk to someone in another room.  You could push another button and make a household announcement that dinner was ready.  You could play music on it through the built-in radio that many of them had.

Does that seem quaint today? Indeed, these intercoms started disappearing in the 1990s with digital technology and inexpensive multi-phone systems that could do the same things wirelessly. But the intercom isn’t dead – in fact, some of those features are still useful even in today’s smartphone-filled  world. 

Along that line, Control4 has reimagined the intercom for the 21st century.  Their Intercom Anywhere integrates with the Control4 smart home automation system to add new dimensions to communication and control for your property in Portland, OR.
