Why consider Home automation? What is Home Automation? It sounds complicated.
Home automation is a broad term that can apply to many home systems. We think of it as easy, all-purpose control that makes life simpler, safer, more fun, and saves energy-all at the same time!
A typical home has many systems in it. These can include whole house music, intercom, distributed video, networking, security, lighting control, heating and cooling systems, cameras, pool and spa control, gate control, etc. A home automation system ties all of these systems together so you can interface with them from one point of contact. With custom programming, you can automate all kinds of things to make your life simpler and make your home a safer place. For example, custom programming can allow events to happen based upon other events. A fire code from the alarm system can cause the home automation system to tell the lighting system to flash your exterior lights so your home is easy for emergency personnel to find. The fun of custom programming comes when you are ready to relax or entertain and pressing one button starts a whole sequence of events. For instance with that simple push, the system can select a lighting mood, start playing music in the appropriate rooms, and control the landscape lights to stay on late since you’re having a party.
A complete home automation system includes and communicates with all of the subsystems mentioned above. Any single subsystem can operate independently in a well-designed automation system. By using wireless touch panels, wall mounted touch panels or keypads, and even iPhone or iTouch, you tell your home automation system how to control all of your subsystems
For a simple example, consider a Home Theater system; take a look at a remote control that came with your television. It has lot’s buttons. You also have a remote control for your Blu-Ray player, one for your cable box, and another one for your receiver. These devices must all be on the right setting for it to work. If anyone accidentally pressed a wrong button on any of these remotes, you might need to spend frustrating minutes checking all the settings. Or call your technically oriented spouse or kid for help. A simple, one room home automation is a very easy solution – forever eliminating this embarrassing situation.
Designing an automation system that meets your needs is a process of discovering how you will use your home and what is important to you. Audio Dimensions was one of the very first companies to venture into home automation. We have over 28 years of experience working with systems from the early primitive ones to today’s most sophisticated designs to help you find what is right for you

The Signature Series represents the best system of its kind, with thousands of hours by Audio Dimensions added to Crestron engineering to make Signature Series your ideal home control solution.
The Signature Series lets you indulge in luxury with one touch. Using one button, your lights dim, shades close the flat-screen TV turns on and you relax as your favorite movie begins. Listen to jazz CDs while you read in the den, the kids play video games in the media room, and your spouse listens to the radio on the terrace. Control your music from any room in the home – there’s no need to walk to the stereo to choose a component, select CDs, change tracks or adjust volume. You can control security cameras and watch what’s going on around the house on your Signature Series touchpanel. Monitor your front door, watch the kids by the swimming pool, or check on the baby napping in the nursery.
Our exclusive roaming panel technology is the Signature Series touch of distinction. This technology lets you walk all over your home with one panel. From your den, you can control the surround sound system there, go down to your basement and control the media center at the basement bar, walk out to the pool and control the music outdoors or in the whole home, and access a camera page on your touch panel to see who is at the front door! No specific panel is needed for each area-each panel can do anything and everything. Nothing we have seen can beat the ease of use of the Signature Series.
These enhancements are just a few of many the Signature Series experience will bring to your home and way of living. Ask your consultant how Audio Dimensions engineering makes your Signature Series system unique.
