Discover One of Control4’s Best Features: Intercom Anywhere

Home intercoms aren’t a new or revolutionary concept. In fact, the first residential intercoms were developed in the 1890s and became very popular during the 1960s and ‘70s. For decades, homeowners with large properties have used intercoms to communicate with visitors at the front entrance or with their family rooms away. 

Intercom systems are still as useful as ever, but Control4 smart systems are bringing the experience into the modern era. Now, your home intercom can be accessed even if you’re miles away, so you’re always in touch with those at home. And through the Control4 home system, you can use the intercom in tandem with other home devices.

Whether you’re new to Control4 or already own a C4 system, here’s how its “Intercom Anywhere” technology works and will benefit your Parkland, FL, home.

How to Use Smart Lighting for Better Interior Design

Leverage Your Home’s Appearance Through Mood-Setting Light Scenes 

If you’re building or retrofitting a fully customized home, you probably have a vision of how it will look. For example, it may appear bright and open during the day while cozy and inviting at night. 

Our surroundings can dramatically influence how we feel, and lighting is an essential component of interior design. Without proper lighting conditions, you could accidentally create a dingy, dim atmosphere during the day. And at night, rooms may be lit uncomfortably bright and harsh. Lighting design considers the lines, colors, and textures across your home and accentuates them through light. 

And with today’s smart lighting control technology, the homeowner can customize lighting design anytime. They can even automate light fixtures to adjust their appearance automatically.

Work with a Smart Home Installer to Create a More Convenient Lifestyle 

We all wish we had more time in the day. Americans have felt busy and rushed for years—even when research shows we have more free time than ever. 

How can this be? According to the BBC, “We feel a social pressure to ‘do it all’, at work and at home, but… it’s a mathematical impossibility.” In 2020, The Economist theorized that “multi-tasking is what makes us feel pressed for time” and blamed task-switching for the feeling that “the job never quite feels done.” 

If your days feel fragmented, take some of that time back! You can consolidate small to-dos around your house through the power of home automation. When you work with a smart home installer like our team at First Priority Audio, we design and install smart systems that simplify daily life.

Consolidate and Live Simply with Smart Home Technology 

Remember the days before smartphones? If you were going on a trip, you’d pack a map to navigate, your MP3 player or iPod for music, a camera to capture memories, and your cell phone for emergency calls. Everything was separated. We didn’t know that someday it would be possible to do it all through a single device! 

Just like smartphones consolidated our tools into one gadget, smart home systems put all your home’s needs into a single easy-to-control platform. From the same app, remote, or even wall keypad, you can access and adjust lights, window shades, audio, video, security devices, and even control your home’s temperature. 

The possibilities are nearly endless when you invest in a smart home installation. Are you curious to see how it will influence and shape daily life at home? Read on to learn how a professionally installed smart home enhances your Lighthouse Point, FL, lifestyle.

Black Rectangle Ruining Your Interior Design? Try a Hidden TV

Mirror TVs, Artwork TVs, and Motorized Lifts Disguise Screens in Your Home

It can be tricky to find a good spot for a TV. You might want to install a television in the bedroom, but the ideal angle would obstruct the view outside, blocking the windows. Or perhaps you have an impeccably decorated living room that would lose its charm with a large, black rectangle at the center of the wall.

If you can’t find a location to mount a television, you have other options. Hidden TVs by manufacturers like Samsung and Séura disguise the display as a work of art or real mirror when turned off. And TV lifts hide the display within walls, floors, and ceilings. How does it work? Learn more for your Fort Lauderdale, FL, home below!
