Home Automation:
Design Innovation for Modern Living

The grand front doors open revealing the exceptionally decorated foyer of an Estate home. With a simple touch the lighting, sound and security systems come to life.

Custom home automation employs innovative technology designed for personalized convenience, seamless functionality and top-of-the-line security. As the installation is operated by one or two buttons, ease of use is unmatched by any other option on the market. The system will be fully designed with the homeowner’s needs in mind, taking into account the interior, and exterior, of the home.

A 10,000+ sq. ft. home was built for entertaining. With automation, a home is ready to entertain guests in mere seconds. Clinton Howell, Director of Design Electronics Custom Residential Sales and Marketing, reviews how his state-of-the-art automation technology prepares a home for entertaining. The System Engineers will customize a setting that can be activated with one touch. The setting will be designed to illuminate prized artwork, start sound systems and provide the pre-selected lighting patterns, throughout the home, which together, create the perfect party atmosphere. There are unlimited themed lighting, sound and security settings available to be pre-set for the interior, and the exterior, of the home. Automation will eliminate the need to go room to room to access lighting, sound, wifi or security options.

Functionality is key when operating a system of this magnitude. To ensure this functionality is seamless from the minute it is turned on, Design Electronics employs some of the industry’s top System Engineers, in the automation and technology fields. The background of the company is in commercial automation meaning they have designed complex systems for large mission critical public spaces such as Ripley’s Aquarium in Toronto, Fallsview and Casino Niagara. Their love of technology and expert knowledge of the industry is carried through to the luxury real estate market. Each home is unique and therefore having access to a wide network of suppliers, and contacts, will ensure only the best state-of-the-art equipment, and talent, is used throughout the entire process.

Automation is just as relevant when the homeowner is not home. Security is of the utmost importance to ensure priceless art and valuable treasures are protected. A home automation system can be programmed to mimic the homeowner’s patterns within the home. These patterns are then re-enacted when the vacation mode is triggered. In so doing, there are seemingly no interruptions in everyday activity within the home. Going one step further — what really makes this security system state-of-the-art is the fact that it will account for variations in daylight, by adjusting the on/off times, with the fluctuating sunrise and sunset throughout the year.

It is well understood that in an Estate home significant effort has been dedicated to intricate interior design details and creation of the perfect aesthetic appeal. The automation system will be designed to mimic the vision of the interior designer, keeping the wires and hardware out of site and housed in one central, tucked away, location. Each homeowner will have a custom set-up that is designed, and installed, to function perfectly within the available space.

Home automation celebrates convenience and innovative design. State-of-the-art technology provides a seamless system that the entire family will operate with ease. The Design Electronics team are the perfect partners to contact to start living the luxury of home automation.
