Whether it’s to protect the environment or their wallet, homeowners throughout Overland Park and the greater Kansas City area are flocking to eco-conscious solutions. These can come in a variety of forms. You can use photo sensors linked to motorized shades and home lighting control to harvest natural light. With smart climate control, you can close shades automatically during the hottest parts of the day and have thermostats go into an energy-saving mode in unused rooms. You can significantly reduce your monthly energy use by merely dimming lights whenever you don't need them at full intensity. We can incorporate energy-monitoring dashboards that let you see where and when you're using the most energy. You can then use these smart technology tools to make the needed adjustments.
While a lot of the focus usually goes to appliances and lights, often it’s your HVAC using up most of your energy. Especially in areas like Kansas City where the temperature can fluctuate wildly, climate control can be a great help. There’s no more dealing with confusing thermostat buttons and features. You can adjust the thermostat as need from an intuitive interface on a touchpad or mobile app and schedule preferred settings. Integrate your home automation system for added efficiency.

Motorized Window Treatments
Lighting control has as much to do with natural light as it does artificial light. That's why all our lighting control systems incorporate motorized shades and blinds. We help you choose the ideal style, fabric, and color to enhance your home's décor while reducing glare and heat. In your home theater or bedroom, we can add blackout shades that completely block out the sunlight. Instead of having to manually close shades, you can do so from a convenient remote, touchpad, or mobile app. You can even include settings that close all your shades at the end of the night to protect your family’s privacy.
Smart Appliances and Plugs
You can also reduce your energy bills by turning off electronic appliances when you're not using them. Some smart devices come with built-in controls while you can make other appliances ‘smart' by using special electrical plugs. The goal ultimately is to let you manage your appliances through your home automation system. From one place you can see what's on in each room and turn off devices as needed. You can even link them to the same occupancy sensors you use for your lights, so they're never running in empty rooms.
