THE FULLY CONNECTED HOME
The home is no longer just an internet access point. Today, it is a high-volume online hub for everyone in your family. If you take a moment to think of everything in your home with online capabilities – streaming media like Pandora or Netflix; email and computing; online gaming; remote-controlled systems and appliances; tablets; smart phones; and more – it becomes crystal clear why a robust, full-featured home “intranet” network is so important. In fact, as even more systems make the shift to online, the value of connectivity will only increase over time.
Audio Connection delivers professional-level home automation systems with complete, personalized service for enjoying the many luxuries of integrated technology. With our expert team on your side, and a state-of-the-art network as your home’s digital foundation, you’ll be able to connect to everything the world offers now… and in the future.
THE LUXURY OF SIMPLICITY
The purpose of technology is to make your life easier. That’s why every system we create is designed with easy operation in mind. From a single control station in your home or office, we can give you the ability to control lighting, air conditioning, music, security/cameras, pool controls, shades and blinds, television, computers, and more from a variety of easy-to-use interfaces. Choose from traditional touch pads and/or button pads; multi-function remotes; or wireless app solutions for iPad, Google/Android devices, and other tablets – Audio Connection makes sure your system is completely in touch with your needs.
Audio Connection understands that your home is your castle – a unique reflection
of your own personality, interests, and lifestyle.
They take this belief into consideration every step of the way, from your initial consultation through the design phase, and ultimately into the installation and customer orientation.
Your Audio Connection designer listens closely to your needs and expectations, delivering an easy-to-use, reliable system, custom-designed for your home with no visible wiring or clutter – a system that enhances the resale value of your home while providing productivity, peace of mind, and a world of entertainment.
Living life, automatically
Imagine. One touch on your tablet and the movie starts, your shades close and the surround sound kicks in at the perfect volume. When the sun goes down, your porch light turns on. And the whole house locks at 11 p.m. Automatically.
You rush out with the kids to drop them off at school. By the time you get to the office you wonder, “Did I close the garage door?” Simply check from your smartphone and relax.
Imagine living in a home that obeys your every command…where virtually every device and system can be controlled remotely and fully automated. You can use your tablet to control your home theater, dim the lights, lock the doors, turn up the heat, and arm the alarm. Or your smartphone to do the same from not just anywhere in your house—but from anywhere in the world.
Welcome to Control4 automation, a smart automation solution for homes and businesses that makes it easy for you to intelligently control every aspect of your home—from TVs to thermostats, door locks to drapes—no matter where you are, using one simple-to-use interface. Control4 solutions make your life more comfortable, more efficient, and more secure.
Best of all, Control4 technology gives you the power to personalize your home or business with the home automation system of your dreams—all within your budget.

automatically make your home more secure. And with the Control4 4Sight Service, “being
home” is as easy as picking up your phone or hopping on your computer.

We promise these four perks will turn you on to home automation. Need a little extra help convincing your spouse to get on board with your smart home fantasy? Feel free to share these key points with them and pretend it was all through your own research.
Simplicity: Imagine having a one-stop-shop that controls your lighting, security, entertainment system, HVAC and more. One in-wall touchscreen makes leaving home a quick and easy process. No more running upstairs to turn off the bathroom light then running back down to set your thermostat for the day. Control nearly all systems from one place, or on-the-go from your mobile device.
Energy Savings: Home automation gives you total control over your environment at the touch of a screen. Lights that turn off when you leave a room and photo-optic sensors that adjust lighting based on natural light levels will reduce your energy consumption. HVAC scheduling ensures you’re not heating or cooling your home more than you need to. In other words, these systems work with the natural environment to save energy and money down the line.
Security: Automatic door locks, security cameras with mobile access and automated lighting systems all contribute to a safer home. This could mean turning off the bathroom electricity from your work tablet when realize the curling iron is still plugged in – or turning on house lights every evening while on vacation to discourage possible intruders.
Luxury and Convenience: Why get up from your comfy couch to dim the lights for a movie in your home theater if you don’t have to? Home automation can help set the mood with lighting, sound, temperature and convenience. Even the hassle-free homeowner can appreciate a little luxury!
Automated Shades and Drapes:
- Motorized window coverings help conserve energy by reducing solar gain and heat dissipation throughout the home
- Motorized shades reduce glare and help product furniture and flooring from harmful U/V rays.
- Motorized window coverings are also very aesthetically pleasing and are available in a wide variety of stylish fabric and control options
- Simple solar shades or roman shades that reflect heat but allow natural daylight to enter a residence
- Straight and curved drapery tracks using a variety of fabrics (e.g. sheers and blackouts)
- Vertical draperies (literally zero stack) for windows where there is no room for stack
- Vertical shades in combination with draperies
A vast array of materials is available for or compatible with our motorized window covering systems so you have great aesthetic flexibility. We provide various control alternatives for your window coverings, including iPads, wall mounted control stations, touch screens and Android devices. Audio Connection can also program your motorized window coverings to open and close based on outside light level, temperature or time of day.
