One of our favorite smart home technologies is motorized shading. Your home’s windows can have a dramatic impact on how you experience your home. Motorized shades provide you with control over your windows and allow you to decide when you’d like natural light and how much heat enters your home. The value of automated blinds, drapes and shades is lessened if you don’t have a firm grasp over their control. In this article, we’re offering three control suggestions that will help you better utilize this smart technology in your Boca Raton, FL home. Continue reading to learn more.

Using Sensors

Adding sensors to your motorized shades allows them to intuit your needs based on the environment. There are a few sensors that might be helpful for your home, but solar sensors have the most obvious benefits when working with shading.

There is an obvious relationship between the sun and your motorized shades. Solar sensors track the position and intensity of the sun and tell your shades what position they should be in to make your home as comfortable as possible. For instance, as the sun sets, the angles of light are a bit more extreme. Lowering your shades at that point can help prevent glares. Couple your shades with lighting control and your lights can go on to offset the loss of natural light.

Using Schedules

Do you tend to run on a fairly consistent schedule? During the work week, you probably leave the house and return at about the same time each day. Utilizing schedules to control your shades means that your shades are in the proper position without you having to take any action.

Audio Interface

The audio interface processes the sound that is going into your computer and coming out of it. It is what translates the binary that’s on your computer into analog audio signals. If any external audio is being run into your computer, then you probably need an audio interface. In terms of output, most computers have a rudimentary converter to produce the sound that comes out of the speaker, but these are not designed for professional grade activity.

When selecting your converter, you need to consider the style of music you intend to record. If you’re planning on having multiple inputs--like drum machines or synthesizers--running in tandem, then you need to make sure your converter can handle the load.

Monitor Speakers

Finding the right speakers for your recording studio can be a bit tricky. One thing to remember is that the speakers you want to listen to aren’t necessarily the speakers you want to test your music on. A few rules of thumb:

Story by Joseph A. Mann Jr.

Audio One, based in Dania Beach and Miami, is a company that designs and builds sophisticated home and office automation networks, audio-visual (A/V) systems that can include home IMAX theaters and state-of-the art recording studios.

Their clients are wealthy — and include rock stars — and their work costs from a minimum of $50,000 to several million.

Audio One was founded by David Frangioni, who grew up in Boston with a passion for rock music and technology, moving from drumming gigs when he was 12 to developing and applying new sound technology as a recording engineer, audio technologist and consultant who designed and installed professional recording studios.

“At 16, I caught the technology bug and realized what new technology could do for drums and other music,” said Frangioni, who is CEO of the company. “I was a ferocious learner and was self-taught in technology.” He studied at the New England Conservatory of Music and Northeastern University in Boston.

Frangioni was the rock-star sound engineer behind many rock stars. He worked for about 15 years as chief in-house engineer for the iconic rock group Aerosmith and collaborated with other music luminaries including Shakira, Sting, Elton John, Styx, Ringo Starr and Ozzy Osbourne.

Jennifer Yosowitz- COO of Audio One - Spotlight on Smart Home Technology in Miami

As featured in Simply The Best Magazine on May 11th, 2017

Jennifer Yosowitz, co-owner of Audio One, Inc., of Dania Beach, Florida, is one of the few (if any) women at the top of the smart home automation and control industry — a market that is expected to reach $12.81 billion globally by 2020. As a college student, she got in on the ground oor of the skyrocketing era of “smart” technology through the music industry in Boston, and then in Nashville and Miami. As both COO and CFO of Audio One, Inc., a leader in the home automation and A/V industry in South Florida, Yosowitz has helped guide the company’s expansion from a recording and pro-audio focus to the luxury residential technology and commercial control segment that now dominates the market.

 

“My passion was always music. I went from Pre-Med in college to opening an office for designing and building professional recording studios in Nashville on Music Row in 2000,” says Yosowitz. “After expanding Audio One to South Florida we became the premier recording studio installation company. Along with my business partner and company founder David Frangioni from Boston, renowned for mixing the very first surround sound record in DTS 5.1, Audio One built studios for Ricky Martin, Olivia Newton-John, Steven Tyler, the Bee Gees, Ringo Starr, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, and hundreds of other celebrities.”

Eventually, Audio One’s elite clientele began asking for professional level music equipment in their homes — high end speakers, processors, and amplifiers, as well as over the top luxury home theaters. “Because we were already embedded in the technology it was a natural progression for Audio One to expand into what is now home technology,” notes Yosowitz. “When you have a technician who knows how to put a studio together with 1,000 connections, it’s not a big leap to understand the schematics of wiring and integrating a house.”
