Perhaps you have heard of home automation but don’t know much about it. Or, perhaps you have seen examples of home automation in commercials, TV shows or movies but are confused on what it entails. You may also think of home automation as a wild concept of the future. Not so!

Home automation is the integration of all electrical devices throughout the home into one central operating system so that you can control everything with the touch of a button. You can connect your televisions, stereo equipment, HVAC systems, window treatments and lighting into one network, allowing you to conveniently and easily operate everything electronic from one main source.

Home Automation Specialists

The Art of Living

Alle Lusso Shades is a master in the market of home automation. What exactly is home automation? Well, it would be an error to see home automation as something of the future, a basis for science fiction scenes or an upgrade out of your reach. It is becoming more and more popular in South Florida homes, and it offers the homeowner and wealth of conveniences.

Home automation is the integration of all things electric throughout the home into a central operating system, almost always a computer of some sort. You can connect your televisions, stereo equipment, HVAC systems and lighting into one cohesive network, allowing you to conveniently operate everything electronic from one main source. You can even incorporate items such as fish tanks, pet feeding systems, yard watering devices and pool pumps into an automated home operating system.

For seniors, home automation can also be considered a safety tool. You would no longer have to worry about whether or not you turned the garage step lights on, or whether or not the bathroom’s heated floors activated before you head in to take your morning bath. Enjoy peace of mind knowing that the porch light will be on, safely welcoming you, when you arrive home at night.

Home automation is no longer an abstract concept, it’s a reality. A reality of modernity and convenience that could benefit homeowners everywhere.

Motorization Specialists

Did you use large, oversized shades to create a taller, elongated appearance around your windows? Did you have spacious rooms that required thick, layered drapery? Did you apply heavy blackout material to your bedroom curtains to block out early morning sun? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have probably encountered the difficulty of manually opening and closing, raising or lowering these bulky window treatments.

While large, oversized window treatments are often aesthetically necessary in the home, they can be difficult to operate. Let Alle Lusso Shades, the motorization specialist, help. They can create programs that allow you to remotely operate your window treatments, moving them with a simple button push.

Window treatment motorization is not only convenient. It removes the need for long, droopy cords that have proven hazardous for young children, as well as pets, making motorization an effective safety tool.

Alle Lusso Shades offers customers only the best in motorized shading systems. Somfy motorized shades, Lutron motorized blinds and Amico roller shades are all available. These top end designers give the customer options that are constantly evolving and improving, such as wireless operating technology, motorized tension shades, shades with safety features built in and precision cable guided shades.

Motorization saves the homeowner time, true, but it also takes away some of the wear and tear your window treatments encounter through manual operation, saving you the costs of repair or replacement over time.

Typical Day with Home Automation

The typical day with home automation will vary based on the home and the homeowner. It depends on what features you have integrated into the automated system, the program you have set for these features and the course of your daily activities.

But if you’re considering automating your Miami home, Alle Lusso Shades hopes you’ll be inspired by the amount of time you can save and the level of stress you can avoid during a typical day with home automation.

The sun in South Florida begins to beat against your windows during the early morning hours. Luckily, you have your blackout shades set to drop down, quietly and quickly returning your room to darkness until your alarm clock goes off. If you’re a coffee drinker or you have heated bathroom floors, set the timers for these two things to coincide with your alarm clock. Does soft music help raise you from sleep? If so, include your stereo system into the morning program.

By the time you’re off to work, the security lights from the night before have been turned off; your sprinkler system and pool pump are set to begin operation before lunchtime; and all the appliances and features you used during your morning routine have been shut off – all without you having to worry about the scheduling.

After a long day at the office, it’s nice to come home to a house with a few lights on. Pick and choose which rooms or outdoor areas you would like lit when you arrive. If you have a dog or cat that you simply can’t get home to feed during the day, set up an automated feeder. And of course, your heating and cooling systems will be linked in, telling your thermostat to operate at peak efficiency when you’re home or away.

Bed time rolls around and you don’t have to worry about switching off all the lights, turning the AC lower or flipping on the flood lights outside. It will all be taken care of expertly by your comprehensive home automation program. Imagine the convenience.

Automated Lighting Systems

Home automation and motorization is gaining broader and broader appeal throughout the world, and aptly so. This advanced technology offers such wonderful benefits and conveniences to the homeowner.

With regard to lighting systems specifically, the benefits are endless. Automated lighting systems can be used as a security element within the home. Sensors can detect your arrival, illuminate your way to the front door and turn on a porch light for safety. You can coordinate your home’s lights with your security system. When armed, only a few key lights may stay lit, while unarmed, you may choose to light only the rooms in use.

For children, automated lighting systems can be ideal for subtly illuminating stairways, corners and bathrooms at night. For seniors having a difficult time moving around the home, having key areas pre-lit on an automated system can help.

For the design-forward homeowner, automated lighting systems can be used to spotlight artwork or to accentuate the more discreet architectural elements in the home. Use an integrated lighting system to shine lights through glass-fronted cabinets or from beneath the lips of the counters.

Outdoor patios, paths and pool areas can also benefit from the safety and visual appeal of advanced lighting systems. You no longer have to fret with switches, slides and dimmers in every room.

Let Alle Lusso Shades show you how integrated lighting systems can improve the look and security of your home.

Automated Window Treatments

Window treatments are a popular place to start when moving to a home automation system. You not only remove the inconvenience of having to walk from room to room, manually opening blinds and pushing panels aside, you remove the dangerous cords that drop from traditional, non-automated window treatments. If you have small children or animals in the house, contemplate window treatment automation for security reasons.

Automated window treatments are also considered an energy efficient feature. When all on the same system, window treatments can help you control your electricity bill. While some will block the harshest, hottest South Florida heat during peak sun hours, others will open, allowing the shadier parts of the day to cool the home naturally. If you have plants, you can time your curtains to allow in optimal levels of sun, keeping them healthy. In turn, you’re helping to naturally filter your home’s air with no added energy usage.

Multi-Room Audio & Video

While a leader in automated window treatments, Alle Lusso Shades believes that the homeowner gets the most out of his or her home automation when enjoying a fully-integrated inexperience. This includes the audio and visual systems throughout the living areas.

Multi-room audio video systems can be impressive, a centerpiece to the functionality and entertainment capabilities of a home. They can also be discreet and useful for only the homeowner’s individual needs.

Regardless, there are several benefits to having an automated, multi-room audio visual system. The clearest benefit is convenience. Dad can watch the game on the big screen while son listens to his favorite concert on the same system. Mom can watch a movie while making dinner and daughter can catch her favorite after school show simultaneously. All of this is taking place without the need for cord-cluttered outlets, separate operating systems and bulky equipment.

Each room can access the main operating system to quickly find favorite CDs or movies, and they can be enjoyed at different times and volumes.

Operating controls can be discreetly integrated into wall panels – or other desired areas – and multi-room audio visual systems are great for entertaining. If you have an elderly parent on young child in the house, having an intercom may be something you’re considering including into your system.

If your house is filled with technology, TVs, stereo systems and other audio/visual components – as most are today – think about the ease of operation you could be experiencing with an automated multi-room audio and visual system.

Home Theater Automation

Home theaters can range from small sitting rooms, equipped with a big screen and quality speakers, to designated viewing areas with drop down, theater-quality screens, surround sound and stadium seating. Regardless of its scale, a home theater is created with one thing in mind – watching that special game, movie or concert in a setting that closely duplicates seeing it in person. A home theater is more than a TV room. It’s a place where you plan to be a part of the action in front of you; not only do you want to hear and see it, you want to feel it, too.

For most, comfort comes first – nice recliners, comfortable surroundings – but secondly, and often more important, is convenience and usability. You don’t want to be required to pause the movie to change the volume or check reception. Does your TV have a glare during certain parts of the day that make watching it nearly impossible? Are you constantly adjusting the sound or picture? Home theater automation is the answer to your problems.

All Lusso Shades can automate everything about the home theater to increase its functionality and usability. Automated, motorized window treatments can drop down when you cue up the movie. The speakers and audio equipment can self-adjust, ready for whatever comes to the screen. What’s best? You can have your automated home theater system programmed to a master remote so all of these features rest at your fingertips.

Let Alle Lusso Shades transform your home theater into a true haven with automation. Stop in our Miami, FL showroom today.

Complete Home Automation

If you’re considering automating your South Florida home or office and the first thought that enters your mind is a complicated control system, don’t feel discouraged. This is a common concern. With systems so advanced, people fear that a huge, clunky remote will be impossible to use and money will have been wasted. Or they think, “I’ll never be able to learn how to operate all of this.”

These thoughts couldn’t be further from the truth. Controlling your home through a complete home automation system is easier than ever before, and with High Tech Designs, it can be even simpler. Professionals are trained to install the most user-friendly automation system possible, and they can be customized to meet your needs exactly.

Controls are no longer the huge, unwieldy contraptions of the past. They can operate your automated home based on simple commands, and they can be small, seamlessly integrated into a wall of the home or a remote control system.

TV Technology

There are many levels of home automation. From simple programs designed to turn on lights when you enter a room, to advanced smart home automation that can recognize your specific presence and customize the space to your preferences, home automation options are diverse.

Many available possibilities surround elements that are already in place within the home, such as the television. TV technology has come a long way, as witnessed by barely-there backing and 3D capabilities. Many home automation systems run directly from the screen of your TV, operated by a remote control.

Did you forget to set your DVR to record your favorite show and you’re stuck in a meeting? Maybe you can access that technology via the web and tell your DVR to do its job, or possibly you’ve programmed your DVR into your home automation system so that a concern like this one will never again enter your mind.

Climate Control

Going green” isn’t going anywhere. Homeowners are becoming increasingly aware of the small changes they can make in their homes to reduce their carbon footprints while reducing their bills, as well.

One of the biggest changes – thermostat control. When you’re not at home or during the night, you want to limit your use of heat and air. Set your thermostat to 78° during the summer and 68° during the winter. (That is just one of the recommended temperature settings to reduce energy consumption.)

Make climate control simpler with home automation. Not only can you integrate your thermostat – or multiple thermostats – to keep your house’s temperature at optimal levels, you can automate your window treatments.

More than just decoration, window treatments can be very helpful when trying to control the temperature in your home. Use blackout curtains to ward off midday sun, and consider thermal lining to help block heat. During the winter months, thermal lining can work inversely, helping your home retain the heat it needs to stay warm without excessive use of your furnace.

Automated climate control is an excellent step to take, for the protection of the environment and for your wallet. All Lusso Shades of Miami, FL can help you determine what automated climate control options would benefit both the best.
