Encore Unlocks the Keys to “Smart” Home Automation

on Thursday, 19 March 2015. Posted in Northern Virginia Home Automation

Hint: The secret is at your fingertips…

Home Automation has come a long way in a very short time. Remember when the height of control was a timer for your porch lights? If you didn’t remember to change the timer, your lights would come on at 5:30 pm in July. Hardly smart.

Now? Encore Custom Audio Video can design a system that gives you (responsive) control over your lights, your security, your HVAC, your media, your shades, and even the temperature of your pool or spa (if you happen to be so fortunate). And the best part about having all this control is that you don’t have to learn some new computer program or language in order to take advantage of it. Encore can connect everything through your iPhone, iPad, tablet or otherwise favorite iOS.
