Why Automate Your Florida Home?

Whether you live in Florida year-round, or just in the winter, home automation can make your Florida home special. Home automation can simplify any aspect of your home such as climate control, security, entertainment and more. With an automated home, all your systems can be controlled by your smart phone. Having multiple apps for your home systems is a thing of the past.  With an integrated home control system, all of your smart home systems can be controlled by a single app directly on your smartphone. Here are some of our favorite smart home options that we recommend  for Florida homes.

Smart Locks

Smart locks don’t only make your life easier, they make your home safer. With a Smart Lock or a garage door app, there is no more forgetting to lock a door or closing the garage door. No more getting locked out and frustrated. A smart lock connects straight to your phone and allows complete access from anywhere. Smart Locks can also allow guests into your home when needed. You can either set up a scheduled unlocking or give your guest a personalized code to get into your home. Smart Locks can also be made to automatically lock your home if it detects that no one is home.


Cameras are an essential for any seasonal home. Our cameras can be accessed via any smartphone, tablet, or computer. If you have a networked video recorder (NVR), you can playback for anything you may have missed, such as what your dog does while you are at work, or who has been eating all of the ice cream. You can access them at any time and get real time HD video and audio. And if you are missing the Florida sunshine while you are away, you can login to a camera and feel right at home.

Automated Blinds

Florida is known for its sunshine. When the sun rises over the Atlantic, bright UV rays light up your home. We understand you may want a few more hours of sleep, so our automated blinds will help keep the sunshine out. Our blinds may be automated to lower and rise at a set time. Blinds are also a great way to keep your home cooler during the time you are away. With lowered blinds, heat gain is lowered by 33% according to the Department of Energy. When it is time to come home, you can raise the shades with the press of a button.

For more information and technology solutions to automate your Vero Beach home we invite you to visit our showroom or give us a call. We look forward to working with you.
