At the request of Heartwood Properties owner, Carl Myers, we designed a whole-house audio/video and automation system prior to the construction of the house. Carl came to us looking for a company that could install a complete structured wiring system, whole-house audio system, camera and security systems, and, most importantly, integrate all of these systems into local in-wall touchscreens.
As a forward-looking, Earth-friendly company, Heartwood understands the importance of technology in today’s “Green” houses. Carl was looking for a company that could compliment his Earth-friendly house by automating and controlling lighting and HVAC controls via a smart system. We were able to use products from companies such as Home Automation, Inc. (HAI), Simply Automated and Russound to integrate audio, lighting, security and HVAC controls into a centralized control system that automates processes like Arming/Disarming the security system, turning lights on and off based on time-of-day or events, turning off audio zones when the house is unoccupied, and adjusting thermostats based on occupancy, schedules or climate.
