1. Away

You likely spend hours away from your home each day, so ensuring your property is well-protected while you’re gone is imperative. An ‘Away’ scene incorporates several of your trusted security components into one smart home response. You only need to tap the ‘Away’ button on the on-wall keypad by the door or pull out your smartphone to initiate the smart scene remotely.

The alarm system arms itself, and interior lights and shades operate at seemingly random intervals. Why would they need to do that, you may wonder? Criminals often look for potential targets by noticing tell-tale signs of an empty home, such as the same window shades drawn for days on end or the same bedroom lights on non-stop. With an ‘Away’ scene, the shades and lights can fool a person into believing someone is at home, making your house a less appealing opportunity for crime.

2. Relax

You’ve had a busy day filled with work and family activities. As you walk inside, you press the “Relax” button on an on-wall touchscreen. The lights throughout your living spaces and bedroom adjust to the appropriate color temperature and brightness, signaling your brain that it’s time to wind down and relax. Your multi-room audio system begins streaming your favorite Spotify station, and the motorized shades lower to provide privacy and reduce glare from the setting sun. As you ease into the comfy sofa, you find yourself unloading the stress from the day and looking forward to spending a relaxing evening inside your home with the family.

3. Entertain

Many homeowners view the weekend as the time to shed the stressors of the previous week and enjoy time spent with friends and family members. An ‘Entertain’ smart scene prepares your entire property for a night of excitement, both indoors and outside. Outside, the landscape lights illuminate, dotting walkways with dim pathway lights that add safety for guests to navigate the property. Weather-resistant outdoor speakers begin playing pop tunes or a perfectly curated playlist from your personal music collection. The pool lights shift to a cool blue hue that adds a funky ambiance to the space. 

Indoors, gathering spaces are bright and cheery, and the same music playing outdoors plays inside for a seamless audio experience for every guest. All you’ll need to do is provide the snacks and refreshments. Your control system handles the lighting, music, and other aspects of entertainment!
