Custom smart home solutions are often considered a luxury item compared to their DIY counterparts.

As smart home devices become more popular, there’s a growing need for enterprise-grade networks that help them communicate efficiently in your home. Relying on your Internet service provider’s standard installation won’t be enough to deal with all of your connected devices. Before you can get more from that new thermostat, camera or speaker, you first need to focus on your home’s network.
Our home network setups, available from Groton, CT, to Westerly, RI, help you truly embrace the connected home. Expanding your network capabilities will help your devices collaborate better to serve your needs. Likewise, you ensure your signal reaches every corner of your residence to avoid any dead spots that could ruin your smart home experience.

Sunlight is vital to our well-being, which is why there’s been a growing trend of using tunable LED fixtures to create more human-centric lighting. Tunable LEDs adjust their hues throughout the day to mimic sunlight. Natural light patterns help regulate your sleep cycle to fend off stress and depression, as we’ve previously discussed in the blog linked below.
As the days start getting shorter in the fall throughout New England—from Westerly, RI to Hartford, CT—it’s the perfect time to embrace a more health-conscious lighting solution. There are a variety of manufacturers that offer tunable lighting, but we recommend Lutron home lighting control for their wide range of fixtures and control options.
But out of all their features, the one we want to highlight in this blog is their day/night conditional program. Rely on just one keypad in the kitchen, bedroom or living room to get the ideal lighting no matter the time of day. The space will illuminate differently using the same button, whether its 6 a.m. or 6 p.m. In this blog, we’ll show you how that feature plays out in a typical day.
