The sun is setting earlier, there’s a chill in the air, and soon our trees will be bare here in Des Moines, IA. As we head into winter, many homeowners are looking for inventive ways to make life a little easier. If you’re hoping to add comfort and cheer to your winter, and if you’re curious about smart home technology, consider a Crestron Home installation.
What is Crestron Home? It’s a home automation system that intuitively connects all your technologies, from lighting to security cameras, all controlled from one interface. With winter-ready settings programmed into your Crestron Home system, you may not even be tempted to book a flight down south!
Read on to discover the possibilities this winter with a Crestron smart home.
Crestron Home’s smart lighting integration makes it easy to mimic natural sunlight indoors and set your lights to the perfect color temperature and brightness. Often referred to as circadian or human-centric lighting, the technology programs your lights to follow a schedule, appearing bright and cool-white in the morning and warm and dim in the evening.
So even on dark, overcast days, it feels brighter inside, which boosts your mood. And warm, dim lights make winter evenings feel snug and homey, perfect for the season.
No one likes waiting for their home to warm up on a frosty morning. Crestron lets you effortlessly set schedules for your thermostats on the Crestron Home app. That way, your house is comfortable when you need it to be, and the heat shuts off automatically as you leave for the day. We can sync your thermostats to heat sensors, too, so the house knows which areas need heat and which rooms are warm enough.
We need all the natural light we can get in winter! Motorized shades are a stylish, handy way to ensure your home is always bathed in sunlight during the day. Crestron manufactures its own motorized window treatments and is also compatible with shading brands like Lutron and Hunter Douglas. Honeycomb shades even add insulation to windows, keeping rooms warm when drapes are closed at night.
Whether you’re decking the halls for the holidays or simply relaxing after work, Crestron Home lets you sync and control all your speakers in one system. Crestron multi-room audio brings music and ambiance to any corner of the house and can be applied to custom scenes like ‘Dinner.’ By selecting the scene, a specific playlist will start playing, lights dim, and the drapes close instantly.
Running a home has never been simpler than with Crestron Home smart systems. All year long, you can create the perfect atmosphere by intuitively controlling your lights, shades, HVAC, and media with one touch of a button.
