From a Certified Motorized Shade +/or Lighting Specialist, that is!

Seek Professional Help!

Don’t do it!  It’s a beautiful afternoon and you find yourself in your favorite home improvement store.  You stroll down the electrical aisle in search of a replacement wall plate and, BAM, there it is, DIY lighting control.  Oh, imagine…”Honey, did you turn off the basement lights? No? Ok [picks up remote], I got it.”  Bliss. Sigh. You round the corner and on the end-cap display, spotlighted as if the clouds have parted and sopranos are welcoming a new dawn….motorized window shades!  Elegant, simple…blackouts for the Master and Home Theater…lighter weave for the family room to protect the furniture and ease glare…sounds perfect but….beware!

How Can Home Automation Get You Ready for the Holidays?

Being home for the holidays can evoke a lot of emotion and anticipation as families get together and friends catch up after months of separation. Decorating one’s home is a fun way to get in the mood for the holidays and prepare for parties…that is unless stringing lights, dragging down boxes from the attic, and setting up displays makes you feel more like a frustrated grinch than a happy elf.

Have you ever thought about using home automation to control your decorations? The professionals at Automation Design + Entertainment have some ideas for using integration technology to make your holiday plans go smoother and your displays look professional.
