We can create ‘Smart Homes’ by using technology that can make interior spaces user-friendly, flexible and energy-saving. Connecɵng appliances through a single point control, is a growing trend that’s leading to fully automated smart homes. The ability to control your home remotely through a mobile applicaɵon helps you maintain an easier, carefree lifestyle. Preset Lighɵng controls that achieve the perfect lighɵng levels in a space, at the touch of a buʃon are in vogue. You can remove most of the light switches cluʃering up your wall and manage your lights on an elegant touchpad or mobile device. Smart lighɵng soluɵons typically use LED lights since they offer more control opɵons, leƫng you adjust their intensity and color through the user interface. Motorized shades that allow the home owner to conveniently open or close shades are increasingly considered the norm rather than the excepɵon. Distribuɵon of Media in the home over low voltage wiring with the help of new compression technologies that can use normal ethernet wiring to distribute AV over IP. This helps keep the TV Wall ‘clean’, and at the same Ɵme, helps share video sources among various displays. This is going to be increasingly asked for. Voice acɵvated commands for Home Automaɵon with the help of Amazon Alexa, and Google Smart Home devices are going to take off in the coming year. Streaming Media content has the potenɵal to replace set top boxes and tradiɵonal content providers in homes, provided the internet speeds keep pace with bandwidth requirements. No amount of technological innovaɵon can be fruiƞul if it does not translate for its intended end-users. ATPL seeks to bridge this gap by creaɵng an immersive environment where homeowners can be familiarized with their opɵons and brought up to speed with how technology can make life easier for them. Thus, home automaɵon can be installed into both new and exisɵng homes, and depending on the complexity and range of the requested funcɵonality and device interoperability can be customized for each home owner. With today’s smart phone and tablet technology, and voice commands now geƫng increasingly mainstream with Alexa and Google Home, homeowners should have liʃle to no difficulty operaɵng their smart home. ATPL has been integraɵng various systems to enable a single point of control to the end-user in homes for the past 15 years.
Replacing the old-style bank of switches on the wall with easy to understand, custom engraved, compact and nice-looking keypads is geƫng to be the preferred choice for not only many home owners but also interior architects, writes
