1. What Do I Want from My Home Automation?

As one of the top home automation companies in the area, we don't settle for one-size-fits-all solutions. Instead, we identify how automation can enhance your lifestyle. Are you seeking effortless control over your home theater or multi-room music system? You may be interested in smart lighting, heating, and cooling for increased comfort and energy efficiency. We'll tailor the technology to fit your life based on what your priorities are. 

2. Where Should I Begin My Smart Home Journey?

Starting your smart home journey doesn't mean overhauling your entire house. The beauty of smart home control lies in its modularity. Start small with your home theater, controlling all audio, video, and lighting with a single remote. Expand to other areas of your home as you become more comfortable with the technology. You'll also be able to integrate additional features like climate control or security systems into your automation platform. 

3. Is Home Automation Compatible with My Existing Devices? 

One common misconception about home automation is that it requires extensive rewiring or replacing existing equipment. Modern systems like Savant are designed to work with a wide range of products, so you can keep the smart devices you prefer. And while a hardwired setup is preferred for its reliability, wireless options are excellent for retrofitting existing homes without needing significant renovations. Home automation is about enhancing your home, not uprooting it.

4. Will My Home Automation System Be Easy to Understand? 

You don't have to be tech-savvy to use a home automation system. They are designed to be user-friendly, featuring intuitive controls that make managing your entire home a breeze. Whether through a smartphone, touchscreens, or even voice control, you manage your home how you want. Even automate your system so lights, smart thermostats, and home security adjust automatically at given times each day. 

5. Do I Want Remote Access to My Smart Home?

With home automation, control doesn't have to end at your front door. If you’re at work, on vacation, or just out for a walk, you can access and control your home remotely. Turn on the lights, check security cameras, or even grant temporary access to guests using your smart locks. This remote capability provides peace of mind, knowing you can always stay connected to your home, no matter where you are.
