Smart Lighting Ideas

  1. Lights flash in your garage when someone rings the doorbell.

  2. Motion sensors in key areas can signal the automation system to switch off lights when a room has been vacant for a period of time.

  3. Landscape lighting can turn on automatically at sunset and off again at sunrise allowing your security cameras to see better at night.

  4. A “Bedtime” scene can set bedside lamps at a level just low enough for comfortable reading.

  5. Midnight snack – just enough light to make your way to the refrigerator and back without disturbing family members.

  6. Motion sensing – At night, when motion is sensed, ramp lights to 15% (just enough light to see, not to be blinded).

  7. Turn off lights automatically each morning when kids leave for school.

Smart Music Ideas

Smart Music Ideas

  1. Stream music to every room in your home, with a dedicated keypad placed in each room.

  2. Play all of your stored music throughout the home via distributed audio zones accessed through your smart phone, keypads, and touch screens.

  3. Tap a button on a keypad to activate a zone of music. If you tap the music, it can change the LED to an assigned color for each family member (with their favorite playlist/settings).

  4. Double tap the volume button to turn off an audio zone.

  5. Music starts automatically in the bathroom when you turn on the shower lights.

  6. Install a touch screen behind a waterproof wall mount in your shower to control music streaming in the shower.

  7. Program your own “His and Her” audio settings.  Time each to correspond with time of day, designated keypad buttons, or audio zones.

Entertaining Ideas

Entertaining Ideas

  1. A “Party” scene – create instant ambiance with the press of a button with lighting that illuminates key decorative elements and a customized playlist that starts up automatically.

  2. Someone drop in unexpectedly? No worries. Get notified when guests arrive by broadcasting a chime through the audio zone’s speakers where the party’s at.

  3. Automatically lock your home’s front and rear doors when a movie starts.

  4. When you press play, dim the lights gradually over 7 seconds.

  5. When you press pause, bring the lights up by 30%.

  6. A “Good Night” scene, which provides a push notification on your kids’ iPad to turn off their TVs. The lights in each bedroom flash as a warning, and 10 minutes later the TVs switch off automatically and the remote controls and keypads in the kids’ rooms get disabled for the night.

Smart Security Ideas

Smart Security Ideas

  1. Automate your bedroom touch screen to see who’s at the door when the bell rings.

  2. WaHave an image from the surveillance camera appear on any TV that happens to be on, pausing the TV show or movie for 15 seconds.

  3. Built-in alerts which will notify you if the front door is left open for longer than five minutes or if the front gate is ajar for longer than ten.

  4. If there’s a security breach, program every light in the house to illuminate to 100%. Simultaneously, the front door automatically locks, the motorized shades open and every TV displays views from all surveillance cameras. 
    “Mockupancy” scenes – lighting that is automated to make the house appear occupied, when you’re away on a trip.

  5. Set a timer that closes the garage door automatically if it is left open for longer than 10 minutes. A motion sensor can be used to keep the door open when you’re working in the garage.

  6. Forget to lock your doors? – Program the doors to auto lock three minutes after the garage door closes when you leave for work.

Smart Alert Ideas

Smart Alert Ideas

  1. Install a card access contact in the mailbox – when mail gets delivered, the AOL theme “you’ve got mail” plays throughout the home.

  2. Receive a text alert when a garage door is left open.

  3. Need to be reminded to take out the trash? Program a notification to appear on every touchscreen and mobile device at the same time once a week.

  4. Instead of waiting up for teenagers to come home, automate your lights to turn on in your bedroom when they come through the front door. You can also set it up so your phone notifies you when the door is locked again.

  5. Get a text message or push notification when the kids get home from school.

  6. Receive email or text notification reminders when it’s time to take medication.

  7. Reminder notifications for HVAC filter, Central Vacuum yearly filter, etc
