High Tech Options
Let your imagination be your guide. This is a wide-open
area. Think about your garage. Imagine being in the
house and programming your car to spin around to point
out and be ready to drive! Sound like technology from
the movies? Not a problem.
We have extensive expertise in local area computer networks
(LANs), as well as high-speed internet service. Below
are some high technology options to consider for your
Computer Based Home Management Systems
We can give you information on just about anything from
the temperature to whether your child has turned on
a television set.
Lighting Control System
If you are interested in something extraordinarily unique,
consider looking at lighting controls by Lutron. The
radio controlled switching system is a flexible and
efficient method of turning on and off lights from anywhere
in the home
or if you prefer, from anywhere in
the world. Unlike other systems, this system runs without,
but can interface with, a computer. Graphic eye room
controllers lets you preset scenes in a room and change
the lighting with the push of a button. We were one
of the first in the area to use this type of switching
and we think it is the best available.
Closed Circuit Cameras
There are overt and covert closed circuit camera systems
available. In most cases we suggest an overt application.
A noticeable camera attached to your home deters an
unwelcome visitor. By placing a camera in open view,
you are putting the visitor on alert that you are aware
of and possibly recording their movement. We suggest
installing this type of closed circuit camera on all
entry doors and along the driveway. Cameras are available
in color or with a black and white picture. Some cameras
are color during the day and automatically switch to
black and white when light levels no longer support
Some people want to catch the person driving on their
lawn or not cleaning up after their dog. For this, we
suggest using a covert camera application. We often
install this type of camera in a nursery to not only
give you viewing throughout the home, but also to let
you record the caretaker when you are not home. There
are endless options.
We suggest the use of professional grade equipment.
It will provide years of dependable operation. We can
set this up for viewing on any television in the home
or any computer in the world. You see what the camera
sees. A four-camera installation is most common and
uses channels 106, 108,110 and 112. Satellite dishes
can also be programmed for this use. With the addition
of remote infrared controls, you can change channels
on your satellite dish from anywhere in your home.
Stereo Installation Service
Walk into your home and turn on the stereo system. A
professional will layout whatever you desire. If a home
theater system is more your style, be assured, we can
handle that job as well.
Alarm systems are another important feature to consider
in a new home. Sure, you can buy a panel, one door contact,
and a motion sensor for the commonly advertised price
of $99, but is this safe enough for you? We have a trained
and certified alarm installer at Viola Homes. Whether
you are looking for a simple system to cover a few doors
or if you prefer the security of a bank, we can install
Fiber Optic Lighting
Fiber optic lighting allows you to light a number of
items from a single light source. Although it is used
mostly in swimming pools, it can be used in landscaping
and in-home lighting.
We have a factory certified installer that can handle
any phone system you desire. For example, the doorbell
can ring into your home phone system. Answer the phone
and talk to whoever is at the door. Perhaps you are
unable to come downstairs and open the door for your
key-forgetting family member. With this feature you
can simply buzz them in from any phone in the house.
