TAGS: Control4 | home automation system | Motorized Window Treatments | Smart Home Technology
Although we all appreciate our breezy, balmy island, we know how warm it can get during the summertime, often uncomfortably so. Those who don’t have a smart home will have a much more difficult task managing the heat. For example, they might have to walk around the house turning on fans or lowering shades - a bothersome, time-consuming task if you have a large or multi-level Lahaina home.
Facilitate your most luxurious island life with a little help from smart home technology. We install convenient tools like climate control that let you manage temperatures from your phone or with your voice. Motorized shades will stabilize temperatures throughout the day (No more mid-afternoon heat waves!) and help you lower energy bills. And you can stay cool by the pool or patio with automated fans and fun pool setting controls. Learn how these technologies coexist to give you a comfortable, energy-efficient Hawaii residence or vacation home.

But when we look more closely, you’ll find that strategic use does wonders for your design goals, whether you’re fond of traditional looks or ultra-modern themes. We’ll explain how integrated technology, when well designed, improves how your residence functions AND looks.

We can all agree that so much feels uncertain right now. However, one element that everyone can control is their home security. Though stats generally reported lower crime throughout the pandemic, increased home time drove bigger investments in DIY and professional smart home security products in April and May.
One of the risks that perpetuates Lahaina, HI, homeowners’ vulnerability to crime is a lack of accurate information. Many of these assumptions find their way into our thoughts and practices, deluding us into believe we’re safer than we are, or that specific circumstances will protect us when they will, in fact, endanger us. If you want to learn what we mean and how to best protect your family and property, keep reading.
