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. 2021 is being about 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

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.

So, does Music Matter…again?

loud speakers for home
The Special Forty anniversary speaker draws on 40 years of cutting-edge research – and brings it all together with Dynaudio’s most celebrated techniques and technologies.

In our everchanging fast-paced world, I am often asked “does music still matter”? Before I would hesitate to answer, but now, I believe I have an answer clearer than I have in many years… Yes, yes it does.

In the last few years, music seems to have become more and more convenient while simultaneously becoming lower and lower quality, all while no one seems to notice or care.

When did we decide that “good enough” was an acceptable way to describe our listening systems?

Good Enough is not good enough!

Now, along comes COVID 19… we enter a time when our whole world is slowing down for the first time in many, many years. Now, I am not going to get into the politics of this mess or claim to be a Doctor whose opinion on all things virus related should ever be listened to but, I do claim to be a bit of an aficionado on great-sounding music and the gear needed to reproduce it in the home.

People are really starting to care about and listen to music again. You see, music is many things to many people and when folks have time on their hands and need an escape, music is often the answer. Picture yourself sitting at home with your beverage of choice in hand and one of your very favorite “records” playing.  My goodness, that is relaxing.  You can just sit back and let the wonderful sounds wash over you… you haven’t been this relaxed in months, perhaps years.

Music is transportive. 

Music is cathartic. 

Music is a connector.

One of the greatest things about music is how it can take you straight to another time and place mentally.  When was the last time you put on a song from your youth… whenever that was.  What happened?  In only moments you are completely overtaken by a rush of memories, can anything else besides music do that? Now, picture yourself playing that same favorite for your kids, even your grand kids.  They will probably complain a bit and make fun of your “oldies” but, they will always remember the experience.  Who knows, you may even create a new music lover that ends up enjoying your music even more than their current offerings. We can only hope, right?

custom home entertainment system

If you do not currently have a “great entertainment system” at home to enjoy your music on perhaps this is the perfect time to think about it getting one.  Music delivery has now come full circle, becoming outrageously convenient and simple, as well as delivering amazing sound at the same time.

You can easily stream all your favorite music on devices like the Roon player at sound quality levels only available to those with very big pockets.  All that quality with the ease of control from your computer, a remote, or the handheld smartphone you already carry everywhere with you.

The Amethyst preamplifier is Trinnov’s flagship high-end stereo product.

These Roon players can easily integrate with a lot of great brands like NAD, Audio Control, Trinnov, and many others. Perhaps you still have a record collection from “back in the day”, well, we can set you up with a great turntable from companies like Thorens or Rega so you can enjoy them like you’re supposed to… again.

And the speakers! The speakers we offer can be either a beautiful part of your home’s décor, no matter the color, or even inside your walls, completely hidden from view if you wish.  We carry speakers from many companies such as Dynaudio, Sonance, Monitor Audio, Theory Audio, KEF, and JL Audio just to name a few.

There has truly never been a better time to enjoy what music can do for you than right now.
