Check the Cables

Digital Signs

Before your customers even enter the door, you want to be interacting with them. If you place digital signage outside of your establishment, you can do just that. These are usually screens with a revolving series of images or videos. As the business owner, you can change the image at any time through a computer or smartphone--even if you aren’t in the building.

Unlike traditional signage, you can change these images every day--or even throughout the day--to best reflect what’s happening in your store. If you suddenly decide that you want to offer a special, you can advertise that without having to wait for the sign to be created. You can also incorporate videos or surveys to engage any potential customers walking by.

Audio

The right sound can help establish the tone of your business. You can play the music that best reflects your goods and services as well as what speaks to your customers. But, whatever you play, you’ll want a strong audio system. Work with an audio professional, like Audio One, to map out the acoustics of your space, and decide on equipment. We can help develop a system that utilizes streaming services that you can adjust through your smartphone. Then, you can play what you like and easily make changes depending on the time of day.

If you’re worried about bulky equipment taking up too much room, we know how to properly integrate the audio equipment. You can use hidden technologies, like speakers installed directly into the wall or in the ceiling, to maintain your aesthetics while optimizing your audio.

One of the many benefits of smart home automation is added protection to your home.

Smart Locks

Your doorway, as the access point to your home, can be very vulnerable. Adding a smart lock is an excellent way to add a little extra protection and peace of mind. Let’s say, for instance, you’re at work and can’t remember if you locked the door on the way out. With a smart lock, you can again employ your smartphone or tablet to check and secure the door if necessary. Plus, you can be alerted when the door opens. This is a great way to make certain that the kids have made it home from school. If you also install a smart camera near your door, you can even check the footage to see what’s going on.

Detection Devices

Of course, you probably already have a smoke detector or even a carbon monoxide detector. But those tools are only useful when you’re in the house. If you want to stay informed, consider the smart version of these devices. If an alarm goes off, you will also receive an alert on your smartphone, and can respond accordingly. Also, consider water sensors. These devices can be placed near pipes to make sure there aren’t any slow leaks that could be causing unknown damage to your home.

You can unlock your door right from your smartphone and receive any alerts regarding your home’s security system.

When you add voice control into the mix, your home’s security becomes even simpler. For instance, you can ask your Alexa device about any component of your security system.
