3 Elegant Home Automation Solutions for Your Houston Property

Give Your Texas Home a More Refined Look with Smart Technology

If you follow our blog, you’ve learned all about the ways that home automation can make your property more energy efficient, comfortable, and convenient. But why stop there? Smart technology is also a great way to make your home look more stunning and impressive! The right countertops and wall décor can only go so far. If you truly want your home to inspire and impress, here are three solutions you should consider:

Lighting Design

Lighting design has long been used during the staging process of interior design. There’s a reason why staged homes look so fantastic: they all have strategically layered lighting that makes every room look its best. However, the struggle with adding layered lighting to the average home is that nobody has the time to set up the perfect lighting for each activity or time of day. Who wants to spend five minutes walking around each room, adjusting the window shades and turning on individual lamps and sconces?

Home automation removes that time-consuming process through the use of a lighting control system. Your smart home company can set up lighting scenes that adjust each lighting fixture’s brightness and the window shades’ positioning instantly. All you have to do is a press a button or speak a command, and the room will transform before your eyes.

AV Distribution throughout Your Home

The modern home has entertainment equipment in practically every room. Televisions, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, cable boxes…all of these devices can cause a lot of unnecessary clutter. Rather than trying to shoehorn an electronics cabinet into areas that may look better with a minimalist approach, you could consider connecting all of those electronics via audio video distribution.

With this setup, you can actually reduce the number of devices in your home while also increasing the likelihood that you’ll use them. That’s because AV distribution allows you to access those devices from wherever you are. That means that the Blu-ray player doesn’t have to be in the same room as the television you want to use. Instead, you can tuck away all of those electronic components in a utility closet and enjoy your entertainment without compromising on décor.

Hidden Technology

Of course, you still need the television handy in your living room, bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, etc. if you want to watch your favorite shows while you go about your day. But that doesn’t mean you have to make the TV the focal point of each room. Hidden technology brands allow you to mask your televisions as artwork or mirrors. Another popular option is to hide the television in the wall or ceiling. Then, using your home automation system, you can press a button and have the television silently appear whenever you need it.

Of course, you’re not limited to just TVs. Speakers, light switches, remotes, thermostats—whichever elements are distracting from the look and feel of your home, we can design a solution that keeps the focus right where it should be.

Don’t let technology get in the way of your home’s impressive décor and architecture. A home automation system offers many unique ways to keep your home looking its best.
