Alarm.com Smart Thermostat
Effortlessly save energy with Alarm.com’s new smart thermostat. Fully integrated into your home security system, the smart thermostat is intuitive about what’s going on inside and outside your home, enabling it to take smart actions that give you the perfect balance of energy savings and comfort. Instead of guessing what’s happening based on a single room, it takes real cues from your security panel and motion sensors throughout your home to learn your ideal heating and cooling schedule. And it reacts in real-time, adapting to changes in your routine.
Control4 Wireless Music Bridge
With Control 4’s Wireless Music Bridge, you can use your smartphone, tablet or other personal device to wirelessly stream the content of your choice to one or every room in the house. Whether its music downloaded from iTunes or your favorite streaming service like Pandora or Spotify, the Bridge easily connects your favorite music libraries to your home automation system with amazing sound wherever speakers are located, including outdoors.
Kwikset Electronic Locks
Ditch the keys and replace your existing deadbolts with Kwikset electronic locks. Kwikset’s fully automated SmartCode deadbolt with Home Connect technology secures your home, while providing convenience and a stylish design. Lock your door with the touch of a button, and use the Home Connect™ technology to control your locks from your mobile device. Kwikset electronic locks install in minutes and no hard wiring is needed.
Kaleidscape High Definition Movie Server
Digitally store and organize your movie collection to instantly enjoy movies in any room, at any time with Kaleidscape’s high definition movie server. Movies come alive with Blu-ray level picture quality and digital surround sound. Quickly browse your movie collection, and search, sort or filter genre, rating, title, actor or other keywords you choose from any room in the house. When viewing films, you can easily skip previews and advertisements and go straight to the main attraction or view memorable scenes and listen to songs with just a click. Movie servers are also a great fit for families with young children since they come equipped with a variety of features and parental controls designed to protect younger viewers.
Alleviate worry and assist aging loved ones to live independently with Alarm.com’s Wellness security enhancement. More than an emergency button, Wellness is a complete 24/7 safety net, providing cost-effective protection, security and comfort. Intelligent sensors enable you to monitor the activity of family members and receive alerts if anything out of the ordinary occurs. Unlike a Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) button, Wellness does not rely on the individual to take an action or remember to keep the button with them to alert help. And easy-to-use schedules allow you to automate lights, thermostats, locks and security so aging family members don’t have to remember to turn off lights and lock doors every night.
Control4 Video Intercom
Monitor what’s happening in and around your home with Control4’s Video Intercom. See who’s knocking at the front door, check in on baby or call the family to the dinner table. Video intercoms ensure all these tasks and more are simple and convenient with fast connection speeds and high-definition clarity. In addition to the conveniences video intercoms offer, the security advantages are priceless. Retire the peep hole. Through the use of surveillance cameras you will always have a view of your front door in clear, full-color video on a generous size screen.
Samsung SUHD TV
Samsung’s SUHD TV is its smartest, brightest and most colorful TV ever. With greater performance, updated technology and more features, the Samsung 4K SUHD TV offers bolder images with dynamic contrast, and the ability to access and play your favorite content seamlessly with Smart TV.
