The Benefits of Using Home Automation Systems

Almost everything from coffeemakers to your flatscreen TVs are programmable, but after a certain point it becomes a major chore in itself to micromanage all of your appliances. That’s where home automation comes in. With the help of our specialists here at Tunnel Vision Technology Inc., you can transform your Chicago home into a “smart home” to conserve energy and make your living space that much more comfortable. Learn more below:

Convenience

The biggest appeal of home automation is the sheer convenience of having total control of all of your major appliances at your fingertips. Forgot to turn up the thermostat before heading to work? Simply change the thermostat settings straight from your phone, or even close the blinds. And best of all, home automation systems are designed to be expandable, so you can start small with one room and add other items at a later time.

Security

Home automation systems are commonly paired with light switches or even CCTV surveillance systems for added security when you’re out of the house. However, it’s now possible to take things a step further with electronic locks and other peripherals. Imagine being able to remotely lock or unlock your door straight from your phone, or to receive text alerts whenever someone enters the house. With a custom home automation system, all of this and more is possible.

Energy-Efficiency

Just as it becomes too tedious to individually program your coffeemaker, calendar, cable box/satellite receiver, etc., it can also be difficult to remember to close all of the blinds, turn off the lights, and program the thermostat. A home control system centralizes all of your major appliances into a single user-friendly interface and allows you to automate your appliances to manage energy consumption as efficiently as possible.

Here at Tunnel Vision Technology Inc., we take pride in offering personalized and user-friendly solutions to residents throughout Chicago and the surrounding areas. Visit us online to see our customer reviews and credentials and call (312) 829-9145 to schedule a professional consultation.

Climate control systems are perfect for scheduled temperature changes that minimize costs when your home or office is empty. With remote access from a computer or smartphone, you can even adjust the temperature on the go for added control over costs and climate. This gives you the flexibility you need to change the temperature at your home or office on the fly as your needs change.

Conserving Energy in Your Office

Office automation equipment is not just helpful for helping your business run smoothly and comfortably—it’s also a great way to maintain the comfort of your office space while curbing energy costs. Shrinking your electric bill is a basic way to reduce your overhead costs, and can be done without compromising the effectiveness of your business. Here’s a look at some ways office automation can help to conserve energy in your office.

Automated Lighting Equipment

Automated lighting in your Chicago office is the easiest way to reduce energy costs throughout the day. Chicago automation system installers can make it easy to control all the lighting in your office at once. This ensures that not a single bulb is left on through the night when your office is empty. Light detection technology can also dim and brighten the lights in your office based on how much natural light is present, thereby reducing energy consumption.

Climate Control Technology

For an even bigger reduction in your energy use, consider managing your office’s heating and cooling technology with an automated climate control system. In-office and remote control of your office environment allows you to maintain a comfortable environment during the work day, and reduce heating or cooling when the office is empty. For even greater savings, window treatment automation can make blocking heat from the sun quick and easy for the entire office.

Videoconferencing

Another way to conserve energy and reduce costs is by shrinking your travel budget. With the rising cost of fuel in the Chicago area, scalable videoconferencing technology is becoming a popular alternative for conducting business meetings. You can use videoconferencing systems to meet with clients and partners across Chicago, or use the same systems to talk with people across the United States or the globe!

How to Select the Right Temperature Measurement and Automation Systems for Your Company

With the consumer push for green businesses, many companies are searching for solutions that will help reduce their environmental impact while simultaneously reducing overhead costs. Climate automation is one of the most straightforward ways to reduce your company’s carbon footprint while also lowering operating costs. With new technology installed by the automation experts at Tunnel Vision Technology, Inc., climate automation can be simple, cost-effective, and comfortable.

Understanding Current Factors

The first step to installing your company’s climate control system is assessing your current temperature system. Figuring out current system capabilities, financial restraints, and your climate automation goals are important to ensuring that the system adequately meets your needs. With this information, our automation specialists can identify the right number of sensors and controllers necessary to make your facility comfortable.

Assessing Hardware Needs

Depending on the climate factors you want to control, different types of hardware may be used. For example, if you want to measure and control humidity within your facility, your hardware needs will be different than if you just want to manage the temperature. Your office automation expert from Tunnel Vision Technology, Inc. can help you choose the right components for your system.

Determining Your Controls

Next, consider how much control you need to have over your facility’s temperature. For companies working in large warehouses or manufacturing facilities, full automation makes it easy to control the temperature in your oversized space. Smaller companies in storefronts or small offices may want full automation with the option to manually control the temperature remotely. In this case, a mobile application like 4Sight from Control4 is ideal.

Videoconferencing Applications for Your Manufacturing Company

With the global economy connecting manufacturers and customers worldwide, having the right technology to communicate over long distances is absolutely essential. When a phone call or email just won’t do, manufacturing businesses can rely on commercial videoconferencing technologies to give customers a sense of confidence in products and processes:

Making the Deal

With the cost of fuel increasing every year, businesses of all sizes are cutting travel. But limits on travel shouldn’t keep your business from growing—videoconferencing technology allows your Chicago-area business to connect with new clients and partners throughout the world. This makes it easy to cultivate new business relationships no matter where the other party is.

Showcasing Your Business

Videoconferencing systems allow you to demonstrate your manufacturing processes and products in an organic and easy-to-follow way. With high resolution cameras and sound systems, new customers will feel like they are in the room with you experiencing your products and facilities.

Connecting with Stakeholders and Your Workforce

When travel schedules don’t line up for everyone, videoconferencing is a natural solution. Connect with any number of call participants using modern videoconferencing systems to make sure everyone is included in the conversation. If your company has a presence outside of the Chicago area, videoconferencing is a great way to facilitate professional development, company meetings, job interviews, and meetings typically conducted face to face. With seamless technology integration with computers, projectors, and other systems in your office, videoconferencing makes networking within and outside of the company easy.
