Why We Say “Simplify Your Life through Technology”

Imagine what you could do with just a few extra moments in your day. What if some everyday tasks were made simpler, freeing up your time? And imagine simple door locks and HVAC sensors making you and your family safer and more comfortable? Well, that’s why at SoundVision we say, “Simplify life through technology.”

We automate the everyday, and the not-so-everyday tasks, that make things easier, more efficient, cost-effective, fun, safe and…simple. To some, home automation is thought of as a luxury. While automating shades and lighting adds elegance, there are also aspects that are simply practical, saving time, energy and adding security to your home. Imagine creating scenes with your lighting and motorized shades to mimic the appearance that someone is home while you’re on vacation. Or integrating your lighting control with your security system so that your front porch lights flash to quickly signal first responders during an emergency. And how about the peace of mind that being able to see your child arrive home safely can bring?

Home automation, when integrated with innovative yet easy to use voice control, can also provide ease and safety for those wanting to stay in their homes as they age, while sensors and monitoring bring comfort to the caregivers who are watching over them.  It can assure you that doors are locked, and appliances are on. It can ease control of your systems by having them work seamlessly as one. It can make homework time less stressful and entertaining effortless.

How can we simplify your life through technology? Call us today and let’s discover.

Smart Home, Healthy Home

The Integration of healthcare with home automation is life-changing

We’re just beginning to fully comprehend the extensive benefits of home automation. For years, we’ve recognized the conveniences, comforts and safety aspects of an integrated home, but we’re learning that those attributes are just the start. Today’s smart home can monitor the ill, aid the disabled and afford us the opportunity to stay in our homes longer.

It doesn’t seem so long ago that baby monitors hit the market. At last, we could breathe a sigh relief while carrying the “walkie-talkie” around from room to room. And then…baby cams were introduced and suddenly we could watch over the crib day and night. Flash forward and we can now check on our homes via our smart phones – anytime, anywhere. We appreciate the convenience and peace of mind that brings in terms of home security or even keeping watch over our pets, but imagine the comfort of being able to watch over an aging parent.

Automated Healthcare

Modern healthcare is finding new, innovative ways to make the most of our connected homes, allowing our Lake Norman residents to remain in comfortable, familiar surroundings longer. Automated, simple-to-use devices can remind an elderly person to take their medication or instruct an autistic individual how to prepare a meal.  Healthcare providers can be alerted when an Alzheimer patient in their care opens a door or when a diabetic’s glucose monitor sounds. For an added measure of security, automated lighting can be triggered as well so that, in the event an audible alarm is missed, visual cues will wake the caregiver while lighting their way.  Visual prompts can also be life-enhancing for the hearing impaired and elderly.

Voice and “Stress” Control

The introduction of integrated voice control has opened up a whole new realm in home healthcare. Individuals that may otherwise be unable to physically or mentally operate a touch panel or control device can now gain control of appliances, entertainment and security devices, affording them greater independence.

Home automation and, more specifically, voice-controlled devices also have a positive impact on our mental health. Multiple medical studies from various academics from Stanford, Rutgers, and University British Columbia have concluded that individuals who feel a greater sense of environmental control demonstrate increased motivation and optimism, and have been shown to have lower risk for psychopathology. That research extends to a homeowner’s ability to be “in control” of their smart home, accessing features that reduce worry and, ultimately, stress levels.

Innovative technologies continue to transform our lives. The life-saving stories are numerous and each of us can likely envision a scenario where remote monitoring, automated lighting, cameras, door locks and voice control can make our lives easier, healthier and more gratifying. Home automation, once considered purely a luxury, has become a wonderful, life-changing tool. Healthcare, along with our homes, just gets smarter and smarter.
