The Advantages of Partnering with a Technologist

Working with a pro ensures the best design, reliability, performance and service

The Advantages of Partnering with a Technologist

With the myriad smart home technology devices on the market today, how do you know which is not only the best, but which is best for you? Smart locks and security devices are great to have, but they’re much more valuable if they’re integrated into your home’s control system. Lighting control, motorized window shades and automated garage control are not only convenient, but also a great way to mimic that someone is home while you’re away…particularly if you can access them remotely. So, of all the innovative must-have technologies out there, how do you determine the best solution for you – for now, for tomorrow and beyond?

Acoustical Treatments Enhance Any Space

Custom panels absorb unwanted noise while complementing the room’s decor

Acoustical Treatments Enhance Any Space

Listen! What do you hear? If you’re home in your media room, are you experiencing the audio as intended with sharp, crisp speech and striking sound effects? If you’re seated in a restaurant for an intimate, fine-dining experience, are you able to comfortably have a conversation, or is the space buzzing with chatter and clanking plates? Sound is a critical factor in how we experience a space, yet it is often completely overlooked in the room’s design.

Smart Home Technology is Taking the Real Estate Market by Storm

Smart Home Technology is Taking the Real Estate Market by Storm

By now, you’ve probably heard about – if not seen for yourself – Amazon’s Alexa commercial at this year’s Super Bowl. You might even belong to the 25 percent of people who own some kind of smart home product (like Alexa). 

What you might not have heard is that smart home technology is taking the real estate industry by storm. In fact, AI and other smart home technology can actually increase the resale value of most West Michigan homes – an important factor to consider now that more and more Millennials are buying homes and interested in smart, connected devices.

Weaving an Integrated Lifestyle

Window shade color, weave and design choices are anything but beige!

Weaving an Integrated Lifestyle

We’ve been touting the benefits of automated window shades for many-a-year. They’re an elegant choice in window treatment and offer a variety of unique shading solutions for every room, ceiling and door in your home. They save energy. They filter glaring sunlight, adding comfort while protecting your furniture from fading. They can be programmed to simulate that your home is occupied, acting as a deterrent for would-be burglars. And the list goes on. But, as extensive as their features and attributes, are their exquisite array of color and fabric choices.
