From Seating to Sound, Here’s What You Want to Know

3 Ways a Control4 Smart Home Automation System Keeps You Safer
Do you think of smart home automation as a convenience or a luxury? It may be both of those things, but did you know it can keep you safer? When you start putting together all the smart functions of your home under one comprehensive smart home system - like Control4 - you can add layers of protection to your daily life.
Smart home technology can be piecemeal or fully integrated. It’s possible to have smart lighting control. Or smart locks. Or smart thermostats for intelligent control of your HVAC system. But when you connect these functions intelligently, you get more than the sum of the parts.
As your authorized Naples Control4 dealer, AVL Pro can put together a smart home system that not only adds convenience and luxury to your Florida lifestyle, but also brings the peace of mind of safety through more intelligent security. Read on for three ways a Control4 system will make you and your property safer.

Install Automated Shades for Added Interior Protection and Style
We live in Florida for the sun and mild climate year round—It’s called the Sunshine State for a reason. All that sun is good for soaking up vitamin D and keeping us healthy, but like anything else, too much of a good thing is not always good for us.
Just as too much sun exposure is harmful to our skin and potentially causes other issues, too much sun in the interior of your home also has negative consequences. UV rays can damage furniture finishes and fade rugs and window treatments. Too much heat buildup can cause your air conditioning to work overtime and drive up energy bills.
We can’t control the sun in Bonita Springs, but AVL Pro does have a solution to protect your home’s interior: installing motorized shading. Read on to learn more about what this smart solution can do.
