It's the 21st century - should you really have to turn on the lights when it gets dark or turn up the thermostat on a cold day? Let your house do it for you. Home automation will turn on the AC as you're leaving work, monitor energy usage and even shut off the sprinklers when it starts to rain. Forget to turn off the lights or dial down the heat when you leave for vacation? Do it online!
An automated home adjusts the security, cooling, heating, and lighting automatically for comfort, energy savings, and convenience. An automation system can take the place of a standard security system or work with an existing system. It greatly increases the value, safety, and efficiency of your home. J. Becher & Assoc. offers systems that are easy to operate and understand. Day-to-day events are controlled with one button, such as Day, Night, or Away, while more specific activities are menu driven to change temperature, lights, audio, and much more!
Access and control the system over the telephone or internet, either from within or away from the home. Check and adjust lights, temperature, security, video feeds, or audio from your phone and/or computer. Not only can you call to check on the status of your home over the phone, but your system can actually contact you! Program your system to call, email or text when your children have arrived home from school or if the alarm has gone off. We even offer video surveillance capabilities over the internet so you can get a visual check of your home via your office computer or web enabled cell phone.
Systems can easily be changed, upgraded, or expanded later if your needs change. You can add touch screen, pool/spa/irrigation controls, drapery controls, remotes, whole home audio systems, and home theater controls. The sky is the limit. If you want it controlled, there is a great chance it can be done. The cost varies depending on the size of your home and your needs. Typical systems begin at just $1 per square foot, depending on options. We will evaluate your home and your family’s needs to customize a package that is just right for you. If used properly, your system can pay for itself in energy savings over time while increasing the resale value of your home.
From Low Voltage Wiring to All the Cool Technology for Homes J. Becher & Assoc. technicians help you choose the system right for you and your home then they install it, set it up, test it, and make sure you know how to use your new system for years of enjoyment.
