BUILD A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOUR HOME.
Minutes before the guests arrive. At precisely 7:00 p.m., the sprinklers cease, the landscape lighting softly illuminates the walk, the rhythmic beats of the Gypsy Kings permeates the air and the thermostat adjusts to a cooler setting. As you check the bedroom monitor, you press another button that activates the front gate permitting the first visitors' entrance. You secure your earrings and head downstairs to greet them. It's party-time!
Your home is an integral part of you. Every room is unique with it's own attitude and temperament. Be it a typical day or a special affair, your home possesses the ability to personify your disposition, to mirror your mood. Eager to please, it remains poised to serve its master. Unlock the hidden talents that lie dormant within, transforming your home into a living organism with a personality as distinct as your own. A sophisticated sanctuary, where the atmosphere is at your command.
The power lies in your hands.
Invent "routines" inherent to your daily life which initiate a sequence of activities at the touch of a button, i.e. "wake-up" where the shades open, the morning coffee brews, the CNN anchor chipperly reports the news and the bathroom temperature decreases for an invigorating shower. Conversely, dictate single events to occur at precise times, i.e. check stock quotes hourly, prompt the exterior lighting at dusk, cue the central air-conditioning to remain on during the summer months or from different locations, i.e. monitor the nanny from a screen at work, survey your infant sleeping in the nursery from the living room, phone ahead to open the gate and garage door. The possibilities are endless!
Networking your home or office allows the major systems at play: audio/video, home theater, HVAC, lighting and security to communicate with each other and the outside world. This coverage can be extended to incorporate other electronic devices, i.e. communication systems, Internet access, home appliances, garage door/window control, phone/security interface, irrigation/pool control, etc. Access to your system is not merely confined to your home. Simply, tap in from a cellualr phone or a remote interface located at the beach house or office. You're never more than a phone call or touch screen away.
