Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you enjoyed last weeks post about what might be possible with your Digital Living Certified Smart Home automation system.

Join me for week 2 as I create new scenes you could potentially recreate for your Digital Living Certified Smart Home.

Our focus last week was on a morning wake-up scene. Today, I would like to visit what it might be like to enter into a possible breakfast scene.

We last left off with fresh coffee awaiting you. Imagine if you will, making your way down the hall toward the kitchen, the lights sensing your presence as you approach, as the ones behind are diming off in the background. Stopping to pour your coffee, you glance to the left. A small kitchen television descends from under the cabinet to display today’s news. The drapes quietly glide open to reveal the colours of autumn. You prepare your breakfast as you watch one of your favorite cooking shows.

Breathing in, enjoying the warm light, you are alerted that it is time to go. Your garage door opens as you head to the car. As you back out, pausing for a moment in the driveway, you tap an icon on your phone and your home shuts down as you leave, locking all the doors, turning off all the lights, and shutting all the window coverings, except the ones where your favorite orchid resides, letting in that perfect amount of filtered light.

Follow along with Digital Living Certified Home as we create your perfect day from beginning to end.

Choosing to invest in new or upgraded low voltage cabling can result in costly retrofits later if the system you have installed was not designed to fit your needs or designed to integrate future technology. When you choose to have an electrician install your cable system, you risk losing performance in the future of your system.

Think of your smart home as a large computer operating the daily functions of your home. Would you ask an electrician to troubleshoot your computer? Probably not, they aren’t versed in such technology. This is why its imperative to hire a Licensed Low Voltage Contractor to design and install this type of valuable system.

Choosing to install whole house cabling is a great investment when done right. It will increase the value of your home and helps you complete everyday tasks seamlessly.

 

1. Low Voltage Contractors Are On Top Of Technology

Certified installers are trained in all the latest industry standards, technology shifts, and what the potentials are for the future. They are the first to be trained on new hardware, wiring, and gear. They spend many hours on special training sessions with the developers of new products and technology.

Using a trained technician offers you peace of mind and saves time and money in the long run.

2. Contractors Offer Valuable Product Warranties

Working with a low voltage contractor who has designed your system from the ground up, means that you know what’s being installed is tailored to your specific needs and the upgrades you would like to see in the future can be easily added in when you are ready.  When you choose Digital Living to design your system, you get the satisfaction of knowing that your system was installed correctly and if anything we designed fails, we will be able to correct the issues at no cost to you.

3. Less human error

Mistakes and errors are reduced when you let a hands-on trained professional install and connect your cabling infrastructure. Knowing your system was installed correctly gives you piece of mind when it comes to performance. You can expect fewer network and new component issues down the line. Yes, even something as simple as paring a new component can be problematic if the original install did not have the proper connective end installed in the location you need.

 

4. Faster Installation No Matter What

Many challenges arise during installs. Professionals run into these challenges as well, however, they have more knowledge on how to work around certain difficulties and can even fabricate solutions for your specific issues. This makes a professional install much faster, safer, and precise.

 

Remember, a stitch in time saves 9. There is truth to this old adage. Have a licensed low voltage contractor design and install your system today so that tomorrow, you won’t be paying for costly retrofits.

It’s no big secret that technology is creating modern-day advantages in the work environment, but what about in the home? The question most people ask is, how? How will technology help me in everyday home life? What advantages will I gain by integrating my home?

Join me on a quest to discover new ways Digital Living and technology can help you smoothly transition throughout your day.Digital Living - CEDIA Member is the preferred custom electronics, audio video, home theater, smart home provider in California digitalliving.com

I have to admit I have been living in the dark ages. (Insert eye roll emoji here.) I am a child of the 80’s. If we wanted to hang out with friends, we had to find them first. I remember riding my bike from my home to my friends home only to discover she wasn’t there. So on to the park downtown… again, not there. Where to now? Where could she be? If only there was a way to find her without having to ride my bike all over the town. Enter the cell phone.

I am reminded of a great movie, “Desk Set” with Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. It’s a 1957 flick where Katharine’s character, an extremely knowledgeable research clerk for a television network, is in danger of losing her job to a computer.  People call her and the other women in the department and ask random questions much like we ask Siri today. What are the names of Santa’s reindeer? How many inches in a mile?  The computer in this movie takes up almost the whole entire department she works in. Today we hold in our hands, smartphones that contain more power than any one of the late 50’s would have thought possible.

So what’s my point by all this? Like some of you out there, I was not aware of all the possibilities that living in a smart home could offer. I was living the life of Katherine Hepburn in Desk Set, thinking technology was my enemy. It is here to help.

Remember how I mentioned seamlessly enjoying life? Every day we go through many transitions. Let Digital Living help you integrate your home to perform for you making some of these transitions feel less stressful and more, seamless.

Here are some suggested ways your Digital Living Certified Smart Home can help give you back the gift of time helping you seamlessly live life.

Start your morning off right.

Imagine warm soft lighting set to turn on with your morning alarm that gradually brightens as you wake up. Helping to smoothly transition you from sleep to wakefulness in a peaceful way. The floor starts to warm under your feet as the in-floor heating kicks in on those cool winter mornings. As you make your way to the shower your favorite song is cued when you open the door, encouraging you to have a great day. Don’t worry, we didn’t forget the coffee, your coffee maker was set to go off with your alarm and has fresh brew waiting for you.

Join me each week as I post new ways your Digital Living Certified Smart Home will help make your life seamless.
