Smart Home Living Versus Your Personal Concierge

Discover the Answers to Common Questions Regarding Home Control Systems

Smart Home Living Versus Your Personal Concierge

The first smartphone came out in 1992, and it was big. It could send and receive emails and faxes. Fast forward, and we can stream videos, have dozens of apps, and take incredible photographs. The original smartphone has gone the way of the dinosaur.

Why the smartphone history? It’s a little like home control systems. Technology is advancing rapidly, and keeping up with it requires close ties to the industry. At Wipliance, we’ve witnessed this incredible expansion firsthand, starting in the industry 18 years ago. What’s possible now, compared to then, is truly miraculous.

Marrying Design and Functionality in Smart Window Shades

Experience the Benefits of Working with a Motorized Shading Company and Automation Expert

Marrying Design and Functionality in Smart Window Shades

Walking into a room with sunlight streaming through the windows can almost take your breath away. That’s the power and beauty of natural light. It brings the essence of the outdoor world into our homes while enhancing our well-being. Research shows that getting just an hour of the morning’s natural light can help you sleep better.

This natural light is also a critical component of your home’s design. It reveals the authentic colors, highlights the textures, and provides ambient light. Unfortunately, it can also harm your home’s interior, fading wood floors, furniture, and photographs.

Wipliance, a home automation and motorized shading company serving Redmond, WA, has the answer to this dilemma. Motorized shades automatically adjust throughout the day, letting in diffuse sunlight while protecting your home.

The Smart Home Challenge: To DIY or Work With a Home Automation Contractor

Explore the Intricacies of a Smart Home

DIY home improvement projects are undoubtedly at an all-time high. Common projects range from landscaping to refinishing kitchen cabinets and bathroom renovations.

How a Smart Lighting Company Transforms Outdoor Spaces

Outdoor lighting is about more than safety and security (although that’s important, of course). Tastefully designed landscape lights accentuate your home and outdoor areas in an all-new light, bringing comfort and warmth to areas that otherwise would be hidden in shadows. And as we head into winter, creating a warmer atmosphere is more important than ever.

To achieve such luxurious outdoor lighting, you’ll need more than a porch light or pair of string lights. Partnering with a smart lighting company like Wipliance in Medina, WA, provides a tailored design and installation that lets you customize the mood anytime.

Here’s our process behind designing, installing, and programming outdoor smart lighting!

Using Sensors with Your Lutron Lighting System

All You Need to Know About Daylight & Occupancy Sensors

Using Sensors with Your Lutron Lighting System

Automating your lights to follow a schedule is handy, but a schedule can’t predict what’s really going on at home. If it’s a stormy, cloudy day (a common occurrence here in Medina, WA), your Lutron lighting system won’t know that it should open the drapes and turn on the LEDs to get some light. Likewise, if it’s starting to get darker earlier each day of fall, a schedule won’t be able to account for the changing night sky. 

That’s where sensors come in handy. Lutron’s occupancy and daylight sensors are essential to a complete smart lighting experience. Learn how they work and can enhance a Lutron lighting system below. 

Renovating Your Home? Plan for Smart Home Integration

How to Incorporate Smart Lighting, Audio, & Security in Your Smart Home Renovation

Renovating Your Home? Plan for Smart Home Integration

Are you ready to reimagine your living spaces and make your home truly 'smart'? The potential is endless: imagine music flowing through your house in sync, from the kitchen to the backyard. Picture security cameras perched by your front door, accessible via your tablet, all while you control your lights and music through a single app. 

In a world increasingly dominated by wireless technology, the allure of adding a smart system to your home is enticing. But here's the catch: wireless tech, though convenient, can be unreliable and vulnerable to outside intrusions. Robust smart systems can sometimes overwhelm your Wi-Fi bandwidth, causing you to lose connection to your Internet of Things (IoT). 

The smart choice? Wiring your home with a professional integrator who specializes in smart home renovations. Whether you're building a new house, undergoing a major renovation, or simply upgrading your existing space in Bellevue, WA, partnering with a smart home installer can be a game-changer. 

So, what sets a smart home installer apart? Let's delve into the details.
