Leave home and the same system can switch off audio visual sources and revert to vacation mode – simulating clients at home so the house looks occupied.
Lutron Sivoia QS Blinds & Curtains
Automated curtains and blinds are a fantastic addition to any lighting control system. They add a real wow factor in individual rooms but become invaluable in larger homes. Clients often install multiple coverings in each window – sheer blinds, blackouts and curtains. They allow easy closing or opening of window treatments throughout the property and can also be automated via time clocks or sunset / sunrise. We are fully trained Sivoia QS dealers who can handle the whole specification, installation and programming.
Audio Visual Control & Integration
Homeworks QSX allows easy control of whole home music systems such as Sonos – allowing music selection to be easily controlled by lighting keypads for individual room controls and allowing all of functions by entrance doors. We often integrate music systems with occupancy sensors so music starts in powder rooms as clients enter and then automatically switch off when the room is vacated. We have even switched on music systems in boot rooms to keep dogs entertained when homes are unoccupied – truly bespoke solutions are easy to create with systems this powerful! Neat touches like monitoring the light levels in cinema rooms and automatically closing blinds when required is all part of the service with a well designed system.
