Smart Home

At Audio Advice, we’ve designed, configured, and installed more smart home systems than anyone in the Southeast. New companies and products emerge every day that try to capitalize on the idea of a “smart home.” It’s a buzz word that has caught fire in recent years. While some of these products can talk to one another or are controlled by voice, none of them will make your home truly smart on their own.

Our experience has enabled us to test and curate the products, platforms, and combinations that perform best together, are the most reliable, and are easiest to use.  We’ve seen lots of smart home companies come and go — as such,  we only work with companies that we believe to be great long-term investments.

We’re the only company in the Carolina’s that partners with all three of the top brands in home automation and control, Crestron, Control4, and Savant.

Audio Advice Signature Series

Further, we have invested heavily into producing our Signature Series version of each of these control systems.  Through installing thousands of control systems and living with them ourselves, we have put each of these systems on steroids by adding functionality and automation processes that exceed the normal out of the box versions.  Our Signature Series home control has been installed in more executives homes than any other high-performance system in the Carolinas.  Come into either of our showrooms to experience our Signature Series home control systems using Crestron, Savant or Control4.

What is a true Smart Home?

A typical home contains many technology systems. These may include whole house music, intercom, distributed video, networking,  securitylighting control and shading control, heating and cooling systems, cameras, pool and spa control, gate control, energy management, and more. A truly smart home ties all of these systems

A truly smart home should meet the following criteria:

  • Integrates various home technology systems into one platform
  • Provides advanced functionality that the systems can’t do on their own
  • Is easy to control using a combination of a simple user interface, mobile devices, wall panels, and even voice control
  • Blends in with your home’s aesthetic
  • Makes your daily routine and your life easier and more fun!

In addition, we integrate full intelligent surge protection into all systems, allowing us to proactively monitor and reboot our customer systems remotely in the event of a power surge or product failure.  Once the system is installed, our 24/7 on-call service team will be there to support your system, diagnosing and solving any unexpected issues that may arise.

If you are serious about speed and security, you just need more. Audio Advice specializes in high performance networks. We’ve spent hundreds of hours testing different wireless access points and routers to determine the best combinations for speed and security.
