Look for a Company that Works with the Major Platforms and Offers Ongoing Support

In our current DIY society, many people start their foray into smart home technology with smart lights or a smart camera that they install themselves. This device is controlled with a smartphone app, and the next smart device is controlled with another app, and so it goes. Before they know it, they have five different apps controlling five different devices, and none operate cohesively. 

That is a far cry from integrated home automation. 

At CITE Solutions, we partner with leading brands in home automation. These include the world-renowned Savant, Crestron, and Control4 home automation platforms. This extensive selection of smart home technology offers several benefits that another home automation company may not provide. 

Let’s explore why our decades of experience and partnerships make a significant difference in the creation of your Bonita Bay, FL, smart home.

The Integrated Smart Home

Instead of different apps controlling different devices, a smart home platform communicates with all your connected devices, and the connected devices communicate with each other. This type of integration allows your motorized shades to automatically lower when the temperature rises, reducing solar heat gain while protecting fine art and furniture from the damaging rays of the sun. At the same time, your lighting adjusts, brightening in response to diminished daylight. 

Your home becomes an ecosystem of connected devices that respond throughout the day, creating the ideal environment. Additionally, with one touch on an easy-to-use interface, you can control light, shade, audio and video equipment, security system, and more. 

Even better? You can manage your home, whether lounging in the living room or halfway around the world. Did someone forget to set the alarm when they left? Pull up the app on your mobile device and arm it instantly. 

Is a hurricane heading your way? Keep an eye on your property through your security cameras and receive alerts if your home detects flooding. Managing your home becomes effortless with today’s technology.

The Home Automation Platform

The three leading home automation platforms all have their areas of expertise. For example, Savant is known for its intuitive app. Crestron is a global leader in large luxury estates. Control4 is an open platform known for its ability to control nearly every connected device on the market. 

Many home automation companies specialize in one platform. At CITE Solutions, we realize that each offers unique benefits for different situations. Our smart homes are customized and provide our clients with the latest technology that’s the best solution for their unique needs and lifestyle. 

In It for the Long Haul

We’re there for our clients long after the last wiring and integrations are complete. When Hurricane Ian hit the area, we were there for our clients whose smart homes were affected. We offer ongoing support, training and maintenance to ensure you get the most out of your technology.
