Designing a home automation system that blends seamlessly with your lifestyle can feel overwhelming, but you can start running your home right from your phone or tablet in just three easy steps.

1. Tie all your systems together

There’s a reason we use Control4 as our operating system of choice for the smart homes we design. It provides a single solution for helping all your devices work together — in one simple platform. A truly smart home reacts at a custom level with automatic programming for everything from managing the lights coming on to monitoring entrances to playing your favorite song.

But the hardware doesn’t do all the work by itself. Now that you have a home automation system, you need the software to facilitate it.

2. Invest in your home automation network

You have a ton of networked devices — cell phones, tablets, laptops, smart TVs and more. If it has power, it will eventually become network aware. With increased connectivity, your network needs to be business class. Is your network ready for the expanding requirements of a smart home?

Whether you’re considering upgrading your legacy systems, or you’ve already spent money on new electronics, the smart systems in your home have software that’s constantly changing. Cinegration can be your home’s IT expert to help you connect, manage and maintain the systems you rely on every day.

3. Get the most from your devices

Your smart home is supposed to be simple, but your systems are dynamic and need to be maintained. More than just understanding the electronics you bought, we can help you get the most out of your devices by personalizing them to the way you live. Instead of buying separate products to run myriad applications to control each new system, all your products can link together in one easy-to-use interface.
