Miami, It’s Time to Automate Your Home


From lighting control and window shading to surveillance, a Crestron automation system can take care of it all in your Florida home. An integration system incorporates all of your smart technologies under one set of user-friendly controls. The result is a space that intelligently coordinates its activities to match your needs and lifestyle, better known as a smart home. Crestron is currently the largest manufacturer of integration systems, and, as such, they offer a wide range of solutions. Therefore, if you choose to make Crestron your manufacturer, then you will be able to find the right option for you and your home. To learn more about Crestron technologies, read on. 

What Can You Control?

Under a Crestron system, you can integrate numerous devices and technologies. To understand more about what a smart home can do, let’s look into some of the most popular choices:

  • Lighting Control: When your lighting system is under one system, you can turn every light in your house on or off without moving. In fact, you can use the Crestron app to check on your light usage from anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection.
  • Motorized Shades: These shades can be designed for any window in your home. They go up and down at the touch of a button. Plus you can coordinate your shades with your lights to help you save energy and maintain the right lighting from day to night.
  • Smart Home Surveillance: A smart surveillance system will give you peace of mind. You can keep tabs on your property from anywhere with a smartphone or tablet. Plus, your other technologies--like scheduled lights or audio--- will work with your security systems to make your home appear occupied while you’re away, especially important for beach homes.
  • Multi-Room Audio Video: The right audio video system can make your house a home. You can create a customized music experience in every room and add the latest and greatest in television technology. Plus, when it’s under your Crestron system, you’ll only need one remote and not ten to operate it all.
  • Outdoor Entertainment: Without the proper patio setup, you’re not a true Miami resident. Create an ideal outdoor space for entertaining with weather-proof speakers, lighting and televisions.

Whichever technologies you want to include in your home, they will all work better under the control of a Crestron system.

Crestron Controls

Crestron boasts a diverse collection of control options. This means that you will be able to create the right combination for you and your home. For instance, Crestron offers touchscreens that can be mounted on your walls with an easy-to-use interface. There are also mountable keypads similar to light switches that you can place throughout your home, so you can make changes while you move about. If you prefer to remain stationary, you can also incorporate remotes to place on a coffee or end table. In addition, you can use your own smart devices with the Crestron app to make adjustments. Finally, Crestron can also be connected to an Amazon Alexa device--like an Echo--so you can control your devices with voice commands. Working with an integrator will ensure that you find the right control plan for you and that it all works properly.

Crestron Helps Power Mark Zuckerberg's Jarvis App


AUDIO-ONE, who is a leading Crestron Installation and Programming firm serving Miami, South Florida and the Los Angeles market, had a chance to discuss on platforms using Crestron as the backbone in creating new home automation interfaces. Mark Zuckerberg, co-founder of the social networking company, Facebook, is once again gaining attention in one of the world's fastest growing industries: Home Automation. Known as Jarvis, this iPhone app has been referred to as Mark's "custom-made artificially intelligent assistant."  Similar to Amazon's Alexa, Jarvis interfaces with Messenger, according to Zuckergerg's Fackbook blog post. In addition to connecting smart devices and phones around the home, Javris can use Facebooks' visual face detection to determine intelligent tasks such as notifications when the baby is awake, or who is ringing the doorbell. To learn more about Jarvis and Crestron technologies, read on. 

Zuckerberg's Jarvis is Built Upon Crestron's Smart Home Technology


AUDIO-ONE, with it's showroom located in Sunny Isles and Fort Lauderdale, FL, along with installation crews and services in Los Angeles, CA, is one of Crestron's top authorized leading custom installation companies, which for almost 2 decades has led the way to building some of the smartest homes in the world. With over 8 CEDIA Industry Awards for best systems and installation company, AUDIO-ONE's projects span from South Florida, to California, the North East coast to as far away as Ghana Africa, with clients flying Audio One's teams over the world. 

What is interesting to note is that Jarvis is actually built on top of Crestron's elite smart home technology. Crestron has been leading the way in luxury custom smart home automation for many years, and is definitely compared as being the "ultimate" provider of home automation for homes of "the 1%" most wealthy persons in the world. Crestron home automation systems can cost thousands to over millions of dollars and allow people to control the majority of all electronic systems in the home from anywhere in the world with internet access including lighting, motorized shades, alarm, access control, home theater, audio, video, sound system, HVAC and so much more. 

Clancy, Crestron's president of residential systems, said Crestron would typically be able to power many of Jarvis' features through its own apps. But Crestron, in this particular project, created an API that would let Zuckerberg build his own "front end" in his preferred programming language, Python.
