Home Automation Creates Unprecedented Ease of Living

Is Your Smart Home Genuinely Smart?

Home Automation Creates Unprecedented Ease of Living

A smart home can do some remarkable things. When you walk in the door after a long day with your hands full of groceries, you can ask your voice assistant to turn on the lights. In fact, while they’re at it, they can also turn on your “Welcome Home” playlist and adjust the thermostat. 

When it's time for dinner, you tap an in-wall keypad, and the kitchen lights dim while the lights in the dining room transform to the color of candlelight. Soft jazz streams through your home via architectural speakers, and your shades lower for privacy. When it's time for bed, you tap the "Good Night" icon on a bedside touchscreen, and the lights and AV equipment turn off, the doors lock, and the alarm arms. Pretty remarkable.

But the “automation” in home automation refers to the tasks your home performs with no effort on your part, preparing itself for you in advance. At Video General, we get to know your lifestyle and daily activities and program automated processes that enhance your everyday life. 

Now that’s a smart home.
