With Great Sun Come Great Shades

Let Launch Systems Find the Perfect Lutron Motorized Shades for Your Home. 

California is a beautiful, sunny state. On hot summer afternoons, it is hard not to squint outdoors or even inside if you don’t have efficient window treatments. Similarly, keeping your home comfortable and cozy during the winter is much harder without the proper shading solutions. The importance of adding the best motorized shades to your home is undeniable, especially since they help with privacy and climate control. With dozens of window treatment options to choose from, it is difficult to pick the right brand and products. For smart shades, the issues of programming, installation, and integration with other technology systems also come into play.  At Launch Systems, we will help you pick the perfect motorized shades for your home in Newport Beach, CA, and design, install, and automate your window treatments for optimal performance. To start, we recommend Lutron, the leading name in lighting control and smart shading systems and one of our trusted brand partners.  Here is a brief review of Lutron’s top-selling motorized shades to help you pick the best solutions for your smart home.

Roller Shades

Roller shades are your first option when looking for motorized window treatments, and as their name indicates, they roll up and down at the tap of a smart interface. Depending on the type of fabric you pick, the benefits of your smart shades will range from privacy to climate control and beyond. For example, sheer roller shades are see-through but still protect from UV rays. On the other hand, dim-out sheers give you added privacy, and blackout fabrics are 100% opaque.  Lutron’s Roman shades allow you to work with your own materials. So, if you have the fabric pattern to go with your home theater wallpaper, why not use it on the windows there? You will get the perfect look and still reap the benefits of Lutron technology!  If you would like to try motorized shades before venturing into a more significant investment, Lutron also offers solutions for every budget. From their battery-powered Serena shades to the top-of-the-line Palladium family, we can help you find the right product for your smart home. 

Tensioned & Cable-Guided Shades 

In all of our years in the market, the expert team at Launch Systems has found many windows in odd or hard-to-reach spaces. Is this the case in your home? No worries, we have the experience to install smart shades there as well! For angled windows and skylights, we rely on Lutron’s tensioned shades. They minimize sag and use intelligent hembar alignment technology to synchronize with other shades in your home. In areas with high-wind conditions, Lutron’s cable-guided shades prevent unwanted motion and potential damage to glass surfaces.   There is a lot to consider when picking the right window treatments for your smart home, but we are just a screen tap away and always ready to help.

3 Reasons to Install a Lutron Lighting System in Your Home

A home with a Lutron lighting system.

Enhance Your Home Beauty With Lutron Lights

Home lighting is extremely important. How a space is lit impacts how welcoming it feels and can even influence if you feel relaxed or energized. Traditional lighting solutions aren’t really adaptable and may not be able to provide the lighting your home needs and deserves. That’s why many homeowners use smart lighting systems for increased control and customization.

Lutron lighting systems are some of the best lighting control systems on the market. They allow homeowners to tune their lights and have total control over them. That way, your home is always lit exactly how you like. Discover what Lutron can do for your home in Coto De Caza, CA.

You can download the Lutron Homeworks app and turn on lights, adjust them, and create preset scenes. So if you forget to turn off the upstairs lights before you leave for work, it’s no problem. Just go to the HomeWorks app and turn it off from there.

Lutron lights also work with a variety of smart home automation platforms. So you’ll be able to control your lights from the same dashboard you use to control the rest of your smart home tech.

Architectural High-End Speakers Offer Invisible High-Fidelity Sound

A living area with Sonance Invisible Series speakers and a view of the pool.

Bring High-Performance Audio to Every Room in Your Home

For some music lovers, the mention of high-end speakers brings a dedicated listening room to mind. They hear the sound field—the guitar riffs off to the right, the vocalist in the center of the stage, and every note of the piano. They imagine sitting in upholstered seating, acoustic treatments dampening the sound reflection, and high-fidelity speakers taking them to the front seat of a live concert. 

Many of our clients, however, want something a bit different. They want to incorporate high-end audio into their daily lives, when walking into their homes, sitting on the patio, or watching their favorite movie. Unfortunately, high-performance tower loudspeakers don’t always work well in these settings, detracting from a home’s design and marring its aesthetics.

The good news is that today’s manufacturers heard the call for high-end architectural speakers and answered. Today, you can experience the immersive sound field throughout your home, in your home theater, the living room, and even out into your yard in Huntington Beach, CA, and Orange County. Let's find out how.

The Ultimate Home Theater

Many of you have probably heard of James Loudspeaker. Founded in 1999 in San Francisco, where the company started in the tower loudspeaker arena, they quickly established themselves as innovators and made several "firsts" in architectural speaker design and use. In 2019, they were acquired by Sonance, the inventor of the architectural and invisible speaker category.

Most family members will have a phone, maybe a laptop or tablet, plus all your TVs, gaming consoles, and smart technology. All of these devices require internet connectivity and will eat away at your internet’s bandwidth, potentially overpowering a weak network. You might think getting a router from an internet provider and plugging it in is enough, but you'll need something more in a home with so many devices.

Why Homeowners Are Choosing a Samsung Art TV Installation

A smart hidden Samsung TV.

Where Elegance and Entertainment Meet

No matter how good the picture on your TV is, it doesn’t change the design of the TV itself. When not in use, TVs take up wall space, and the large black box can distract from your room's carefully curated design. They might provide great entertainment, but traditional TVs can be a bit of an eye-sore when not in use.

That’s why Samsung came up with The Frame. This TV doesn’t only provide a spectacular viewing experience. It also doubles as a piece of art or photo. So when not used to watch a show or movie, you can use it to display your favorite images that will elevate your Anaheim Hills, CA home’s beauty, not take away from it. Keep reading to learn more about how a Samsung art TV installation can enhance your home’s style.

Why You Should Install Circadian Lighting in Your Home

A woman winding down by reading in dim, warm lights.

Soak in the Benefits of Natural Light in Your Own Home

One of the benefits of having a smart home is the ability to customize it so that it works around your schedule and makes daily life easier. But did you know that your smart home can also get in sync with your biological clock, leading to a better daily routine and overall health? Circadian lighting is one example of this technology, and installing it in your Orange County or Coto de Caza, CA, home can greatly improve your lifestyle! Keep reading to find out more about circadian light systems and why you need one in your home.

SEE ALSO: 5 Ways Motorized Shades Benefit Your Smart Home

What is Circadian Lighting?

The human body has a natural 24-hour clock. It drives a person’s wake-and-sleep cycle, which affects wakefulness and sleep. Light is extremely important in this cycle because it helps influence a person’s circadian rhythm. For instance, a brightly lit room with bluish tones encourages productivity. However, a dimly lit room with warm lighting makes a person feel sleepy. That’s why most people feel more tired at night than during the day. The lack of light communicates to your body that it is time for rest and sleep.

Many people love lots of natural light in their homes. But natural light isn't always available, such as on cloudy days or in interior rooms. That’s where a circadian lighting system comes in. It adjusts the light in your home to the hue of the sun’s light outside (based on the time of day). 

Benefits of Circadian Lighting

Installing circadian lights in your home helps your routine by promoting a better sleep-wake cycle. For instance, you’ll wake up more refreshed, be more productive during the day, and enjoy a restful evening as you prepare for a peaceful slumber. Standard lights are essentially one color. Even if some lights are tunable, most don’t automatically change throughout the day. Circadian lighting is an intuitive system that is designed specifically with your well-being in mind.

The lighting and design of any home affect its beauty; they determine how the home feels and impact indoor comfort as well. Both professional lighting design and stylish decor make your home more comfortable and welcoming. And shades play an important role in it all. Not only do they let in or block out natural light, but they also elevate the style of your home. Motorized shades are the perfect shading solution for San Juan Capistrano and Orange County, CA homes. Keep reading to see the benefits they provide to you and your smart home.

SEE ALSO: Create a Beautiful and Healthy Environment with Tunable LED Lighting

1. Perfect Light for Any Home

Motorized shades are designed to provide the perfect amount of light in any room. Best all, you don’t have to do a thing to make it happen! They can be programmed to operate via a schedule or light/heat sensors. Automatic shades integrate perfectly with your home lighting system, so you always get the ideal balance of natural and artificial light.

2. Easy Controls

How about hassle-free control of your motorized blinds? Wouldn’t that be nice? It’s so easy to do! Adjust your shades up or down with the touch of a button or a voice command. You can control your automatic shades via a wall panel, smart home tablet, smartphone app, or remote.

Dynamic Spectrum Lighting Redefines What’s Possible in Home Design and Lighting

Lighting is one of the essential elements in a home's design. It sets the mood, transforming a space from light and cheerful to dramatic and intriguing. It energizes and inspires us. At one time, our choice in lighting was soft or bright white light. We could dim or brighten our lights, but the hue remained relatively constant. 

Then, Ketra entered the market, transforming how we experience light. In 2018, it was acquired by Lutron, enabling us to control the tunable LED lighting in a responsive and personalized approach. It’s safe to say lighting will never be the same. So let's see how it's transforming homes in Anaheim Hills, CA, and the greater Orange County area.

Tunable Full Spectrum Light

Tunable or dynamic spectrum lighting gives us access to every color in the visible light spectrum. That’s about 17 million colors, from pastels to saturated shades and a range of whites. Astonishingly, all these colors come from one light source, which means that we can change our lighting at any time. Are you in the mood for a splash of magenta on a living room wall or amber candlelight on the patio? Now, it’s as easy as one touch. 

Today, we can change our lighting for any occasion, mood, and task. By setting scenes, one tap on a touchscreen or in-wall keypad will change all of the lights in your home and outdoor spaces to preset colors and levels of brightness. For example, tap the “Entertainment” button, and your home and landscape lights set to the colors that create the perfect atmosphere for friends and family.

3 Reasons Why Smart Shades Are The Perfect Integration For Your Home

Smart shades add more than elegance and convenience to your Newport Beach, CA, residence.

Smart shades are one of the smart home features that add more than just luxury and style to your spaces. These shades come to your home to enhance your life with a wide variety of fabrics and shade styles to complement your home's design. At Launch Systems, we can customize them to suit your needs. 

SEE ALSO: Add Value to Your Next Project with Automated Roller Shades

ENERGY EFFICIENCY

When smart shades are connected to your lighting system, they work together and make the most of natural light. By combining the lighting system and smart shades, the lights only operate when the smart shades are fully closed. When they are open, your lighting system will sense that prolonged operation is unnecessary, so they will dim or turn off completely to let natural sunlight do its job.

You can program your smart shades to adapt to your daily routines, so they automatically rise when you get out of bed or close as night falls. During the summer, you can use the shades to your benefit, saving energy as the shades will close to keep the house cool to avoid constant use of the air conditioning system.

EASY CONTROL

Smart shades give you full control over them without getting out of bed. With keypads, remote controls or even your smartphone, you can control every action of your shades. For example, with the touch of a button, you can lower or raise the shades without physically going to every shade in every room to use that annoying chain hanging on the side of the shades.

Read on to learn how a professional, commercial-quality Wi-Fi installation in your Huntington Beach, CA, residence will allow you to get more out of your smart home this summer.

STREAMING ENTERTAINMENT

The way we consume entertainment has changed dramatically in the last twenty years. In the past, for a high-quality experience you might go to the cinema to watch a movie or buy or rent DVDs that made home entertainment more convenient. In the last few years, streaming content has become the dominant form or entertainment consumption and thanks to high-speed internet connections. With this increasing demand for internet connectivity for all our devices at home, fast and robust Wi-Fi is an essential part of any modern homes.

While we are a long way from the slow connections of only 15 years ago, you still need a system that can keep up with today’s demands. Today, your spouse wants to watch Netflix in the media room while your kids play online games on the Xbox, and you listen to Apple Music on the outdoor sound system. You need a Wi-Fi installation that can keep up. 

BANDWIDTH

Streaming services, such as Amazon and Netflix, online gaming, and meeting platforms like Zoom and Google Meet, require a minimum bandwidth (expressed in megabits per second) to deliver high-quality content. On average, they need 10 to 20 Mbps. Although this may seem like very little bandwidth usage, when you multiple this across various simultaneously connected devices, it becomes significant. The average home has over 30 devices connected, and the Wi-Fi router capacity and throughput can be an important factor in device performance.

Add Value to Your Next Project with Automated Roller Shades

Automated roller shades installed on a bedroom window

Motorized Window Shades Give Homeowners Seamless Control And Blend In Beautifully With Luxury Homes

Shades are an essential part of any home. As a home builder, architect, or interior designer, you understand that. Without them, rooms would look bare, and the life of homeowners would be moving pictures for all the neighbors to see! While conventional window shades create ambiance and privacy, they don’t add convenience or opulence. Instead, why not use automated roller shades that respond when you touch a tablet, remote, or smartphone app? Since modern homes require updated technologies, motorized window treatments are the perfect solution for delivering value to clients. They offer more privacy, convenience, and comfort. If you're working on a home project in Anaheim Hills or Orange County, CA, read on to learn why you should make room for automated roller shades in your design plan.

SEE ALSO: Should Motorized Roller Shades Be Your Next DIY Project?

Safety for Children and Pets

If your client wants a safe home for pets and children, automated shades are the perfect option. Traditional shades and blinds often use cords, which pose choking hazards for children and animals. However, automated shades have a cordless design that eliminates this problem. In addition, cords and rods - even though you may have grown accustomed to them - are unsightly. However, motorized shades are sleek, stylish, and free of strings.

One-Touch Automation

As the name suggests, motorized window treatments are electronically and remotely controlled. No need to get up to twist rods or pull strings. Instead, there are multiple control options, depending on the manufacturer. Raise and lower the shades using a remote, smartphone app, or smart home tablet. If you want to go completely touch-free, automated shades can be programmed to operate based on the time of day or even via light sensors.

Light Filtration and Blackout

How about two shades in one? Premium brands often integrate two fabric types into one shading solution for added functionality and convenience. During the day, lighter fabrics filter the light to block the harsh UV rays, yet the home still takes advantage of natural light. But when the occasion arises (e.g., movie night, nap time, or extra privacy), the darker fabric provides a complete blackout effect. The dual functionality of the fabrics also serves to improve the home's energy efficiency. The natural sunlight entering the home offers daylight savings. You don't need to use the home's lighting system when the sun is up. Also, when automated shades raise and lower based on light or heat sensors, they help regulate indoor temperature, so the HVAC system uses less energy to cool or heat a space. Are you ready to add automated roller shades to your home project in Anaheim Hills, CA? Launch Systems offers the best solutions for residential spaces. Get in touch today to start your project.

Transform your backyard into a more enjoyable space by adding an outdoor TV

Do you love spending time outside? Instead of only relaxing in the open breeze, you can add outdoor entertainment features in your backyard to make it more enjoyable. Entertainment solutions can be added to any space, whether on your patio, pool, or landscape. There’s always a way to make your home more fun. And what could be a more enjoyable solution than an outdoor TV? Imagine relaxing outdoors and watching the latest release from your favorite actors. The best part is watching your favorite movies in high-resolution visuals with zero interruptions. Read on to discover how an outdoor TV installation can benefit your home in Anaheim Hills or Orange County, CA.

Complete Entertainment in any Weather

The best part about having an outdoor TV is that you can use it all year long regardless of the weather conditions. All outdoor TVs are weatherproof and fully capable of withstanding weather elements, including rain, snow, wind, dust, etc. Depending on your requirement, you can get a TV for an open space or a shaded area. Outdoor TVs can withstand sun exposure and are much brighter than indoor TVs. They produce high-quality visuals without getting affected by the sun’s harsh glare. The brightness levels are measured in nits. The total nits of full sun TV models are higher than those for shaded areas—however, both produce a brighter picture than regular TVs.

Outdoor Home Theater

Do you want to enjoy a true cinema experience under the stars? An outdoor home theater allows you to enjoy your favorite movies in a whole new environment. You can also pair your outdoor TV with a high-performance outdoor sound system to truly immersive yourself in the action. The dynamic visuals produced by the TVs will allow you to experience lifelike images even in the brightest parts of the day. It is possible to see every scene with more clarity, and you don’t miss out on any moments of your favorite movies. You can enjoy all the entertainment in an open space, elevating the fun to another level. Integrate your outdoor TV installation with your home automation system for easy control. From your device of choice, you’ll be able to pull up the media you want, adjust the volume, and even turn on landscape lighting when it gets dark.   Are you ready for outdoor TV installation in your Anaheim Hill, CA, residence?
