Frequently Asked Questions
What is smart home technology?
Smart home technology can connect every system in your home giving you, the homeowner, instant access to your home’s systems, whether you are at home or sunning on a beach another continent away. Lifetronic Systems can integrate everything in your home: TV, audio, networking, climate control, lighting, motorized shades, security and surveillance, even outside landscape lighting and entertainment.
Is the smart home system complicated to use?
Not at all. Yes your home or business will be high-tech but your life will be streamlined and more secure. With APEX, everything is controlled from a wall-mounted keypad, hand-held remote, tablet or smartphone, all labeled with the tasks each can accomplish with the touch of your finger. Imagine you are rushing out the door for work: Simply pressing “Away” locks all your doors, alarms the security system, turns off the lights and non-essential devices, and sets your thermostat to an away setting, saving precious energy – not to mention your valuable time.
Do I have to make my whole house smart?
No. Our smart home system is fully scalable, so if you want to start small, perhaps with an easy-to-use TV/surround sound system in your family room and a few rooms with background music, it’s easily done. In the future, you can add whatever extras you want or need, since the brains of your smart home is already installed.
When do you wire a new home or business for smart home technology?
New construction, renovations and additions to older buildings gives us the opportunity to implement a fully hard-wired smart home system. Everything is planned before the walls go up. Our technicians work in the new construction phase along with the electricians.
