Smart Home

At Audio Advice, we've designed, configured, and installed more smart home (or home automation) systems than anyone in the Southeast. As our customers in Raleigh, Charlotte, and surrounding areas can attest, our experience has enabled us to evaluate and curate the products, platforms, and combinations that perform best together to create a fully integrated home.

We're the only company in the Carolinas that has years of experience selling and installing all three of the top brands in home automation and control -- Control4, Savant, and Crestron.

After choosing your Smart Home Integrator, the next important decision you'll have to make is which of these three systems is best for your family and your home. If you're interested in learning more about the differences between Control4, Savant, and Crestron, watch the video below, or read our blog!

A typical home contains many technology systems. These may include whole house music, intercom, distributed video, networking, securitylighting 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 together into one seamless platform that is easily controlled by your smartphone or tablet.

Audio Advice Signature Series

Further, we have invested heavily in 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.

In addition, we integrate full intelligent surge protection into our 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.

Our Signature Series home control has been installed in more executives homes than any other high-performance system in the Carolinas and can be experienced in our Raleigh and Charlotte showrooms.

Audio Advice's Control4 Signature Series has become the most advanced smart home system in the country. Watch our Signature Series Tutorial Videos.

Lighting and Shading

Lighting and shading control enables you to make adjustments in your home based on the time, space, or situation. For instance,  our Signature Series systems automatically turn off all the lights in your home when you arm your security system and turn them back on when you return. It will also automatically close your motorized shades in the afternoon and reopen in the morning. 

As the largest and most experienced smart lighting and automated shade dealer in the Carolina’s, Audio Advice can design, install, and program the perfect solution for you, regardless of the size and complexity of the system. We carry all of the major brands from Lutron to Control4 to Hunter Douglas. You can experience all of the various options in our showrooms.
