Home Automation

At Alfred J. Perez our focus is on service. Like many home technology integrators we offer custom home theaters, easy-to-use house-wide audio systems, smart home automation systems, and even surveillance systems.

But we also understand that technology is only ONE piece of the solution. Our clients choose us again and again because of the service we provide and the peace of mind they get from knowing we back up our solutions with the industry's best support.

Elegant Smart Home Solutions

A properly designed and installed home automation system allows you to control everything in your house through one simple interface that can be accessed through voice control, touchscreen, smartphone, or tablet. Everything from audio, video, lighting, climate, security, door locks and motorized shades can be controlled with the touch of a button or with a voice command.

For example a voice command of "Computer, Goodnight" would turn off the living room, dining room and kitchen lights, turn off the TV and surround system, close the living room and dining room blinds, close the garage door if open, turn off internet access for the kids, turn on the alarm system and lock all doors. It would turn the master bedroom lights down to 10% , turn the heating/ac down 10 degrees, play your "Sleepytime" playlist in the master bedroom and set a timer to turn the music off in 45 minutes.

These are amazing capabilities, but a well designed system goes even further. By integrating these systems together we can further leverage them to create a home that is more energy efficient, more secure, and more enjoyable for you and your family.

Lighting Control Systems

Lighting control systems simplify and enhance the look of your home. Replace the large banks of switches on your walls with an elegant keypad that can control every light in the room. You’ll never have to remember which switch controls which light again. Simply press the “On” button and every light in the room comes on to a pre-programmed level.

  • Indoor & Outdoor Applications
  • Remote Control & Wireless Keypads​


Here are just a few of the benefits of an automated lighting system:

  • create beautiful scenes that highlight architectural features or important pieces of art.
  • turn all the lights in the house off with the touch of a button
  • in an emergency such as a fire lights come on automatically lighting a path to safety.
  • when you’re on vacation, a lighting system can make it look like your still home
  • lower your overall energy usage


Climate (HVAC) Integration

Integrating your thermostats into your smart home system allows you to control the climate throughout the house using one simple interface. Set temperatures, adjust schedules, and monitor your system from anywhere in the world.

We can even install occupancy sensors that allow your home to turn off rooms that are no longer in use. Here are a few more benefits:

  • quickly adjust temperatures and schedules
  • automation to increase efficiency and reduce your carbon footprint
  • turn air conditioning off automatically when doors or windows are left open.

Control Your Pool & Hot Tub

Your pool and spa can also be integrated into your smart home automation system. This allows you to have full control of temperature set points, pump, and cleaning control. Imagine the ability to login to your system before you leave work and turn on the hot tub so it’s nice and hot by the time you get home.

Or maybe you’ve gone on vacation and need to check to see that it’s turned off. It’s all right at the tip of your fingers.

DESIGN & ENGINEERING

Comprehensive and thoughtful system design and engineering up front leads to the best balance of functionality, reliability and aesthetics in the end result. Avoid costly mistakes or change orders, having to do something twice, or tearing up walls once they’ve been closed. Careful attention is given to the numerous details involved with smart technology and integrated systems to ensure they are easy to use and deliver consistent performance and allow for future expansion or upgrades. Everything from wiring infrastructure, hardware location, control device placement, user interface design, power management and blending equipment with architectural elements and interiors is planned out in advance. We coordinate with architects, engineers, interior designers, general contractors, and affected sub-contractors.

LIGHTING DESIGN

Our in-house lighting experts will create an efficient and elegant lighting solution that illuminates your space for function and aesthetics. We consult and collaborate with architects, engineers, interior designers and general contractors. You’ll receive documentation for fixture specifications, placement, and electrical plans. Combing our technical acumen and sensitive design techniques the light will beautifully elevate the experience of your space. Post-installation we focus and aim fixtures to optimize how light strikes objects and surfaces.

SYSTEM DOCUMENTATION

A smoother construction process is achieved when the technology system design is documented in advance of actual construction. All parties involved in building your space benefit with clearly defined drawings for device location, pre-wire, technical power, schematics, rack elevation, lighting control, motorized window treatments, equipment space planning, video sightlines, requirements for video niches, and more. We coordinate with your entire design team including architects, engineers, designers, contractors, and consultant to reduce confusion and achieve a smooth and efficient project from start to finish.

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

A smart technology project takes effective planning, organizing, and allocating resources to make sure it’s completed on time and with the desired result at fit and finish. Additionally, procedures and protocols need to be met and unforeseen problems should be resolved quickly. Our dedicated project managers oversee all details and consistently communicate with the contractor, subcontractors and owner. Job sites are dynamic with many moving parts and having a solid, experienced person responsible to bring it altogether makes all the difference. Given the multi-faceted nature of integrating different sub-systems from audio/video, lighting control, climate, security, networking, etc., we take a proactive approach and over-communicate every step of the way.

WIRE INSTALLATION

Even though you can’t see it behind the walls, wire and cabling provides the electronic infrastructure for your smart technology system. The quality of the performance of your Audio / Video, networking and communications is impacted by the quality of the wire installation. Our technicians plan and implement all of your cabling needs in new construction or when upgrading an existing space. We take pride selecting appropriate wire and in the craftsmanship of the installation to maximize performance and allow for easier maintenance or future upgrades.

IMPLEMENTATION

Putting all the parts and pieces together for smart technology and integrated systems needs to be executed with skill, precision, and some finesse. As much as we value our manufacturer partners, different products and brands have nuances that require special know-how and experience to optimize installation and access all the needed functionality. Our trained technicians receive ongoing education and stay up to date on the latest standards and best practices. We take pride in executing your system design with quality craftsmanship so it functions as desired and is reliable.

PROGRAMMING

If you may have a beautiful, high performance vehicle but can’t easily turn it on or drive it where you want to go, then it’s not as valuable. The same holds true with the user interface for your integrated technology system. Making sophisticated technology easy to use and simple for any user to get a high level of performance requires advanced work on the back end. Control systems continue to bring together more sub-systems from audio/video, media, lighting, shading, climate, etc. It’s as if each is speaking a different language and we translate everything together so it speaks one language to you that’s easy to understand. Even if the equipment is properly selected and is robust, the programming effort will determine the intuitive operation. Our programmers balance the technical know-how with the human element so you won’t need a manual filled with lots of instructions whether you’re using a touch screen, keypad, remote, or smart device to control your system.

COMMISSIONING

A quality assurance process for installed building systems prior to occupancy is best achieved with commissioning services. It’s our goal to make sure the final installed system meets owner requirements and the design intent as planned after the many variables within the construction process. Owners will experience reduced energy and operating costs and enhanced satisfaction and acceptance from users. Technologies, such as lighting control and building automation, have become increasingly more complex with integration, daylighting, occupancy sensors, and addressable components. Verifying functionality throughout design and construction phases has become more essential to make a project successful. Commissioning is required to meet certifications such as LEED or ASHRAE compliances. Existing facilities also have the option for retro-commissioning and re-commissioning.

SYSTEM MONITORING

Peace of mind, scheduling maintenance, and optimizing system performance for functionality and energy savings is accomplished with system monitoring services. From a dashboard on a touch screen or a secure software application on a computer or smart device, real time information is accessible to provide status of lighting, temperature, and more 24/7 whether you’re there or on the other side of the globe. IP Devices and service provider accounts are effectively managed including information and documents such as warranties and device manuals.

MAINTENANCE & SUPPORT

Just as a vehicle needs regular maintenance and over time require service or replacement of parts, the same is true with smart technology and integrated systems. We provide continued tuning and system adjustments at set time intervals based on your unique solution to maximize performance levels. When something goes wrong, which is an inevitable truth about electronics, we will be there to fix it quickly. Plus the fact that constant innovation continues to advance electronic equipment means there may be new features and enhanced performance that you will want whether it’s for the video, music, security or control in your space. That’s why we take a proactive approach to communicating with you about the latest technology that is really important for you to consider and when updates to software and firmware are available. We’re here when you need us and are a trusted advisor you can count on.
