It’s a common misconception that in order to have a smart home, you must get in during the building phase. We’ve debunked that myth.
Whether your home is yet to be built, in the construction process, or has been standing for years, Shire Group has the power to make it the smartest one on the block. And size is of no importance; you can smarten up a small flat or a sprawling estate. This means you can start with a universal remote for all of your entertainment equipment and then add a few smart lights or door locks (or anything else) as you’re ready to expand. Talk to a Smart home consultant and see how your home or building could benefit.
What is Home Automation?
Your home will essentially be powered by a system controller—the brain of your home. Then, by using a Control4 or equivalent interface—like a handheld remote, a wall keypad, or touch screen—you can conveniently connect to wired and wireless devices, allowing you to adjust the thermostat, start music throughout the house, close the shades or garage door, or perform many of these actions in unison. From a full smart lighting setup to audio equipment, thermostats, cameras, speakers and beyond.
Freedom & Flexibility
Most software operates on an “open” platform. This means you have choice. Whether you want to use products from other manufacturers or choose the products we have purpose-built for the smart home, it’s entirely up to you. Brands like Bose, Dish, Denon, LG, Samsung, and Sony already have Control4 / Lutron technology built into many of their products, but Control4 also communicates with tens of thousands of devices from over 300 brands. The way you listen to music, relax, work, watch a movie, cook, entertain, and create—are all made better when the products you personally know and use every day are integrated into a single system.
A Nest thermostat, a Phillips Hue light bulb, a Ring doorbell camera—they’re all controlled through their respective apps. But do any of them communicate together? Does your porch light illuminate at night when the doorbell is pressed? Will your door camera allow you to remotely grant access to a service worker while you’re away? Can every light be turned off as the thermostat sets itself into “Away” mode when you leave for work? With Control4, your home can do all of this—and so much more—on an easy-to-operate system the whole family will love.
