Simply put, smart home technology includes one or more connected systems, such as:

  • Audio/Video Entertainment
  • Lighting
  • HVAC
  • Motorized Window Shades
  • Door Locks
  • Security Cameras

The system is supported by a robust IT network and an easy-to-use control system. A user can securely manage their home from wherever they are from a single interface on a variety of devices.

Advanced home automation enables users to put many functions on auto-pilot. For example, turning on the lights when someone walks into a room, turning down the thermostat when no one is home, opening window shades in the morning, or locking doors in the evening.

New smart homes are becoming even smarter, with intelligent learning being built in so that your home can discover your preferences and adapt system functions accordingly. Each year brings some incredible changes and innovations in smart home technology, which is expanding into kitchens, living areas, bedrooms, and bathrooms.

Many smart homes now feature dedicated entertainment spaces that make spending time at home even more pleasurable. These include custom home theaters and brand-new spaces such as virtual reality rooms.

A leader in home automation in South Florida, Boca Tech and Automation has expertise in smart home security, networking, lighting, entertainment, and other systems. Smart home technology can consist of one or many connected automation elements. All the automation options we offer are explained in our comprehensive guide.

kitchen technology

Your entire home can be managed on a single interface using your laptop, iPad, or smartphone. A robust IT network and intuitive control system support our smart technology.

While you have the ultimate control, our advanced systems adjust thermostats based on occupancy, lock doors automatically, and turn on the lights when you walk in. 

Smart homes are becoming more intelligent. Able to learn and recognize patterns, modern smart systems can adapt to your preferences based on your schedule. Smart home technology can now be present in every room, from the kitchen or bathroom to bedrooms and living rooms and entertainment centers. Your entire home can effectively be on autopilot.

Today’s smart home technologies are easy to integrate, scalable, and extremely versatile. Whether you’re looking for home automation in West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, or Miami, BTA can assist with installing the following sub-systems:

Home and Office Security

We specialize in customized home security solutions that include doors and windows that resist forced entry, high-definition video surveillance, and keypad, Bluetooth, RFID, and biometric facial recognition entry systems. From emergency email and text notifications to proximity card readers for access control automation, we have you covered. Solutions to protect your home network are available as well. 

At BTA, we’re also committed to ensuring you’re protected from smoke, fire, and carbon monoxide, as well as water, vehicles, and other hazards, thanks to various smart sensors and apps.

Energy Management

Home energy management

Temperature control, water heaters, and thermostats can all be automated or set based on occupancy or time of day. By automating your heating and cooling system, you can improve energy efficiency. Another energy management feature is lighting automation. Programming your lights not only saves energy, but it also improves your safety and enjoyment. 

There are numerous ways to automate lighting, including via a schedule, motion detection, sunrise and sunset, or activation with door openings or alarm activation. You can even personalize lighting for a special occasion or event. Save energy by lighting areas where people gather; even highlight your furnishings or artwork if you desire.

Custom Home Entertainment

custom home theater

A custom home theater and distributed audio/visual (A/V) system keep your family entertained without visible wires or other electrical equipment. Control the music from your remote control or smartphone and even stream audio from your mobile device.

We can install a luxury home theater with unrivaled visuals and acoustics or a whole house audio system with sound customized for each room, inside and out. Our products include invisible drywall speakers and landscape speakers with subterranean subwoofers.

Network Infrastructure

Receive video and audio from the front door and communicate with visitors using a touch panel video screen. Alarm and A/V components from Rosewater Energy Solutions are protected against energy surges, as well as brown-outs and black-outs. These systems are designed to last longer and operate with all types of renewable energy.

All of our automation components are connected via wired or wireless high-speed internet connections. In addition, we use Voice & Video over IP (V2IP) for one-way video and two-way audio.

Climate Control

A simple thermostat doesn’t hold up to today’s automation standards. Smart thermostats can be hidden from view but support a wide range of features. Control your heating and cooling system via digital remotes, smartphone apps, or in-wall panels. Temperature and humidity are tracked with sensors in every room. Your HVAC system can be controlled automatically year-round, and you can manage it no matter where you go.

Unleash Your Home’s Potential

The use of an everyday iPad as a control device opens up brand new possibilities when it comes to whole home control. Easy apps have been created in order to help you control every aspect of your home like entertainment, lighting, and sound.

There are now so many ways to control your home security, entertainment system, lighting, network, and energy usage.

You can also automate window coverings. Blinds and shades can be opened and closed, depending on the time of day, reducing your energy footprint, lowering utility bills, and improving comfort.

Our Florida home automation technologies are also used outdoors. We custom-build pergolas with motorized roof slats and install hurricane-rated bug screens.

We can also update your home with custom landscape lighting, complete with custom color scenes and effects, as well as outdoor audio, TV/projection, and Wi-Fi systems. Smart controls for your outdoor fireplace, pool, or irrigation system can be installed as well.
