The modern home offers many amenities that make living spaces more functional and entertaining, but it need not be at the cost of design. A smart home system creates a more personalized environment, from having the perfect level of comfort to furnishing an atmosphere that relaxes the brain and soothes the soul.
We believe that home automation is about more than applying technology for its own sake. The integration of controls and interfaces should lift up the way people live, work, and play. Rather than displace design and decor, the right system becomes a collaborative tool, amplifying your vision and giving you new dimensions to explore.

A home is more than a place to shelter from the elements. It also provides inspiration and motivation, ensuring you have a place to flourish. Living in the city means you have access to a world of cultures, food, and interaction just past your front stoop. Interiors need to harness this dynamic energy while giving you open spaces that allow you to shrug off the worries of the world for a while.
In his remarkable and revelatory book Toward An Architecture, Le Corbusier stated, “A house is a machine for living.” As part of this ethos, smart home technology generates a sense of connectivity, the spaces altering throughout the day, acting and reacting to an individual's needs and preferences.
Light is the essential palette we all seek to capture and shape, generating new dimensions to a space. Architects invite the sun in, highlighting a room's definition and giving them weight or lightness, isolating and interacting with nature.
The world-renowned interior designer and author of multiple books on design, Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz, sums it up best by saying: “Light is the magical ingredient that makes or breaks a space; it's one of the most important elements in all my interiors.”
The transparency and depth of light allow you to transform a room, affecting mood and atmosphere. Illumination first impacts your perceptions on the subconscious level. Before you can construct a thought, the color, intensity, and coverage determine your response. A smart platform automatically transitions through scenes, adding vibrancy and vigor as needed or introducing changes that keep its occupants attuned to circadian rhythms.
