Lighting sets the perfect scene and creates the desired ambience for any occasion. Whether it’s movie night, an intimate dinner for two, a business party or a quiet Sunday brunch reading the newspaper, lighting establishes the right mood. Traveling out of town or working late? The lights can execute pre-programmed scenes to simulate established lifestyle patterns. Dimmers can adjust internal lighting according to natural light levels in the home or incrementally over a pre-determined time period.
No need to get up or even be home to adjust climate controls, you can control multiple zones from one location and easily pre-set temperature set points. Keep your home at a more energy efficient temperature while you’re out, and programmed to automatically adjust to more comfortable levels by the time you get home. Getting home early? Use your PDA or PC to control the HVAC remotely, even monitor the wine cellar or greenhouse atrium temperatures.

Distributed Audio or Multi Zone Controllers
Distributed Audio simply means speakers distributed throughout your home or business. Most systems are comprised of one stereo receiver with a speaker selector or volume controls in each room. If you are looking for different sources in different rooms, example, CD player playing in the kitchen while someone is listening to Sirius or XM in another room, you will need a Multi Zone Controller. Having a Zone Controller can open up a gateway into where are your electronics can seamlessly work together and can be controller as one whole system. Some options you may have are keypads in each room allowing you to choose different sources, change channels, track forward, or control the volume.
