An eco-friendly home is not just good for the environment, it is also good for your wallet. Effective green and sustainability efforts are much more complex than just harvesting daylight and dimming lighting levels. Managing and controlling ambient lighting is only one small piece of the process. The only way to achieve meaningful reductions in energy usage and utility costs is for all systems to be completely integrated on a single, intelligent management platform. Increasing the sustainability value of your home will help you save on energy consumption and reduce your carbon footprint. We work closely with architects and builders who desire to execute such energy-saving ideas into their projects and to gain nationally recognized LEED certification.
Smart climate control makes it easy for you to set the perfect temperature of your home regardless of the season or other conditions. Create a comfortable environment by making adjustments from the same touch screen you use to control your lights, shades, and residential audio video system. Monitor and control your thermostats from a mobile device if you left your air conditioning unit blasting when you left home or turn up the heat before you return on a cold day. Heating and cooling your New York home can be expensive, but our HVAC control solutions save you energy with programmed settings and integration to a smart home automation system.
ALutron lighting control systemin a single room or throughout your Hamptons, NY home gives you the flexibility to adjust light so you only use the amount needed whether cooking, entertaining, or watching TV. So you save energy without compromising style or comfort. Smart home automation technology enables your lights to automatically adjust based on time of day, whether the room is occupied, and the amount of daylight coming in from your windows. Our residential control systems work for different sources in your home including LED and fluorescent fixtures.
Motorized Window Treatments
With motorized shades or blinds, you can easily adjust the amount of daylight in your home to save energy while increasing comfort and protecting interiors. Motorized shading and drapery reduces solar heat gain whether blocking out the sun entirely or using a transparent shade to allow just the right amount of light needed in your kitchen, family room, or bathroom. Manage energy without comprising style with hundreds of window treatment fabric and color options available to choose from.
Non-intrusive occupancy monitoring with asmart home automation system enables advanced energy-efficiency optimization to be realized for your New York home. Sensors are discreetly positioned to effectively determine if anyone is in the room and trigger automatic adjustments to subsystems such as lighting, motorized shades, HVAC control, and small appliances. Automatically turn lights on when a person enters a room and off when he or she leaves. An occupancy sensor is ideal for rooms where lights are often inadvertently left on, such as a child’s room. You no longer need to worry that the AC is blasting or lights are on when nobody is in the room. Additionally, usage patterns over time are analyzed and sensitivity levels of the sensors are adapted accordingly.
The right acoustics help control excessive loudness from music and spoken word activities and mitigate unwanted echoes and reverberations. This is a commonly overlooked component of well-designed homes and home theater spaces. Sound bounces around a room much like a ping pong ball bouncing back from hard surfaces, such as a wall, and slowing down when it hits a soft surface like carpet. We’ll engineer an acoustic design with the best mix of highly-aesthetic acoustical materials that match your home’s décor and provide the best solution for the application.
