Home automation is no longer a futuristic luxury afforded to the characters of a science fiction flick. Smart home automation is a proven trend that is here to stay. When you’re working with the professionals at Launch Systems, you can change the way you experience your Portland, OR home and incorporate all of your technologies into one intuitive and simple-to-use home control system.
Some technologies can make your home more comfortable, such as lighting and climate control; others can elevate your entertainment experience to another level! To learn about two of our favorite smart home solutions, keep reading below.

Motorized blinds and shades can do more than cover your windows to provide privacy from peering eyes. Different fabric and style selections can offer various features depending on how you want to use them. For example, curtains made of tightly-woven fabric can block out ambient light, perfect for using in your bedroom and in home theater spaces.
With the tap of a button on your smart home control system, you can draw open the curtains to let warming, natural light into your bedroom in the mornings so you can more naturally ease yourself into the day ahead. In your living spaces, roller shades or sheer drapes with a looser fabric weave can allow softer light to filter into areas. Any annoying glare is reduced, but your family can still see the beautiful outdoor views through the fabrics.
Besides window treatments, a Control4 home automation system lets you manage your entire Oregon property’s audio/video solutions. One easy to use interface will let you control gaming and TV solutions in the media room, then raise and lower the volume in your dedicated listening room. Using your smartphone, tablet, or a universal smart remote, you can control every music and video source in your Portland-area home.
With programmed smart scenes, you can incorporate several home technologies into one smart response with the tap of a finger. A “Movie Night” scene will dim the lighting in the home theater, lower blackout shades, turn on the power to the projector, lower the rollaway projection screen, and cue up your entertainment system to Netflix or Hulu. And if you want to take what you’re watching in one room into your bedroom, you can. Simply press pause, then pick up where you left off once you get cozy in bed – all with a tap!
