Thinking of doing it yourself? Well, there are some pitfalls. The home automation specialist or systems integrator works with the architect or interior designer in creating aesthetically appealing spaces where functionality and style become one. Here are three instances where interior designers and architects benefit from involving smart home automation specialists early on, giving you an indication of how your firm can benefit from our services.
1. Concealing electronics without compromising on functionality
The home automation specialist understands that the client wants superb sound, heart-stopping and amazing visual entertainment, and variety in content. What the client doesn’t want is having unsightly cables spoil the experience. The client wants a television screen that can be concealed in a wall or have the appearance of an art piece when not in use. The client wants high-performance audio, but doesn’t want the audio equipment to be visible.
In addition, walls must be smooth with no switches or control panels that stand out. Instead, the panels must be flush mounted with custom faceplates that integrate with the surrounds. An outlet on the kitchen island, for instance, should be almost invisible. The home automation specialist works with the interior designer and architect in planning the spaces. Rather than getting the systems integrator in at the last moment, use the expertise offered to ensure that every part of the interior transitions smoothly with optimal functionality for incredible comfort and maximum energy saving.
2. Integrating technology with the home and furniture layout
The client wants the best entertainment, maximum convenience and cost-effective energy management. However, the client wants more than just the hiding of audio-visual technology.
Instead, the client wants to ensure that the television placement provides for best viewing opportunities without compromising on aesthetic appeal and flow of the room. To this end, the interior designer works with the home automation specialist in determining the best placement of the television set in relation to furniture. The floor surface, drapery and placement of the furniture affect the acoustics and as such, having the systems integrator and interior designer work together, ensures a better end-result.
Our team works with interior designers to create the best layouts and balance of furnishings to not only hide technology, but to enhance the overall experience and aesthetic appeal of space. This applies to visual and ambience appeal, in addition to technological functionality.
3. Controlling ambience through light automation
Smart systems integration also entails control over ambience through lighting. With smart lighting control, the client is able to set the warmth and brightness of lights through the push of a button or even just through the right configuration for automatic adjustment, depending on the particular setting.
A full spectrum of colour is possible through LED lights. The client is able to deck the specific space to complement the furniture and décor. This is all possible through the installation of a control system that allows for effortless switch between hues and tones.
By involving the home automation specialist early on in the architectural and interior design processes, it is possible to ensure the best placement of controls and lights for optimal ambience control.
