Effortless Control

A Crestron system controls everything in your home via one easy-to-use smart platform. From lighting to window coverings, music, TVs, thermostats, fans, home theaters, door locks, and security, nearly every connected system is managed with high-resolution touchscreens or automated programming. 

The goal? To enhance your everyday life and turn your home into an oasis. 

Impeccable Lighting

Your lighting replicates the sun’s natural light, bringing nature’s beauty indoors. In response, your body realigns with the changing daylight as it has for eons. You wake to light that resembles the dawn, feeling energized. In the evening, your lighting becomes a soft amber glow, preparing you for relaxation and sleep. 

With one touch, you create the perfect lighting for dinner time, movie night, and entertainment. Your lights also automatically perform, illuminating when you pull into the driveway at night, turning on when you walk into a room, and turning off when you leave. When you get up in the middle of the night and head to the kitchen for a glass of water, soft hallway lights automatically illuminate the way.

Automated Shading

Crestron automated shades let in the perfect amount of natural light, a light that is found to reduce anxiety and stress while enhancing productivity. As the sun arcs across the sky, your window coverings adjust, protecting your home from harmful UV rays while letting in the diffuse light that offers beauty and warmth.

Audio & Video

A whole-home audio-video system lets you easily listen to your favorite musician or streaming service in any room or your entire home. It places the stack of boxes, wires, and remotes into a closet, distributing AV from every source to every speaker and TV. 

Now, you can enjoy full 4K HDR and watch any content anywhere. Hidden in-wall and in-ceiling speakers can leave your home untouched, while bookshelf speakers and loudspeakers can be integrated for those who enjoy their aesthetics. 

Thermostat & Climate Control

While maintaining an ideal temperature sounds simple, it’s anything but, as you’re all too familiar with. How many times do you adjust the thermostat on a system that should be self-sufficient? Smart thermostats paired with multi-zone cooling and heating systems maintain the optimal temperature even when you sleep.

We’ve only touched the tip of the iceberg in the world of home automation possibilities. To explore the many other options or to schedule a complimentary consultation, contact Hippo’s today.
