Home automation is much more than a one-trick pony. When you build on a strong foundation, such as an advanced operating system that powers your whole home, the possibilities are endless. Here are top five ideas to get you started.
Smart Lighting Ideas

A “Bedtime” scene can set bedside lamps at a level just low enough for comfortable reading.

A “Party” scene – create instant ambiance with the press of a button with lighting that illuminates key decorative elements and a customized playlist that starts up automatically.
Have every TV in your home automatically turn on to your favourite channel when you come home from work after opening the garage door.
Energy-Friendly Automation Ideas
