Where Do I Start? 

Though many smart home devices exist for your Ottawa space, it’s essential to consider those that can make your lifestyle easier yet more luxurious. Motorized shading and smart lighting are the first avenues many clients consider because they can complement your décor while saving on your energy costs with these solutions. 

Many people worry that technology will be a bulky eyesore in their homes, but that’s simply not the case. Customized fabrics in various styles are available, from honeycomb shades that insulate your home to blackout roller shades that prevent ambient light and heat from entering your bedroom while you sleep. No matter the application, electric shades and blinds blend seamlessly into your perfectly curated home without detracting from your interior furnishings.  

Start Small 

You can start small with Control4 automation. Consider adding lighting or shading to areas of the home you frequent most often. Automating the shades in your bedroom to rise at sunrise to let soft sunlight into your home sounds like a lovely way to start your morning! In your home theatre, add blackout fabric roller shades that lower to prevent an annoying glare from hitting the screen during the best part of your favorite movie. In the future, you can add smart shades to more rooms of your home and integrate other devices into the Control4 total home control system.  

Scale Your System Over Time 

Initiate the “Good Morning” smart scene to raise shades, gradually brighten lights on your path to the closet to get ready for the day and play your favorite news station on your whole-house AV system. When you work with a professional, we can design your current system to easily scale as you add additional devices in the future! And the technology experts at Lucent Controls will assess your family’s needs, so if you aren’t a coffee drinker, we won’t suggest the automated coffee pot for your kitchen! 

One Easy-to-Use System 

Gone are the days of needing to swipe through multiple smartphone apps to control your connected smart devices. With a Control4 system, you’ll have one intuitive and easy-to-use app that ties together your technologies, making them all more functional and convenient with a simple tap or swipe of your fingertips. A device that is simple to use will be used more frequently!
