Home automation was once thought to be just for the uber geeks and the ultra wealthy. Not anymore! Google recently invested $3.2 billion to buy Nest Labs, the company behind some of the most innovative home automation products available. Home automation is revolutionizing the way homeowners live their lives. Imagine monitoring your home using an interface from panels mounted around the home, and from your computer, tablet or smartphone. You can now control everything from lighting to security using a home automation system. Home automation systems can create a smarter home with products that simplify your life. The end result is an intelligent home solution that saves you time and ultimately simplifies your life.

Smith Brothers Construction works with two of the top home automation companies in San Diego, Crestron and Modern Home Systems, a division of Savant. Both of these companies can create a home that is uniquely yours with a system that suits the way you live. The elegant interfaces are easy to use and offer total control from a single app, no matter where you live.


One of the most useful features of home automation systems is security. You can get notified via text message if your front door was accidentally left unlocked or you forgot to set your house alarm. Using home automation systems such as Modern Home Systems or Crestron can enable you to lock your door or arm your home security system, even from miles away.

Set the Mood

Using home automation, your home won’t ever be too bright or too dark. You can create a lighting scheme that is tailored to your taste, indoors and out. Create that perfect mood for dinner guests in advance by dimming the lights when your guests arrive. Crestron uses “Scene” buttons so you can set everything you want in every room for any activity, including “Wake” to “Goodnight” and anything in between. You can create and customize the mood for your home based on your personal preferences.
