Today’s smart homes not only allow you to wirelessly control features such as thermostats, security, lighting, motorized window treatments, and audio visual systems, they also allow you to program how your home should adjust to your needs. With home automation, you can control your home from anywhere in the world.

Press a button and raise the shades. Reach for your universal remote to turn off the lights and turn on the television. Use your iPad to adjust the temperature in the room or access your music library. And at the end of the night, tap the key pad next to your bed to reassure that everything is shut down and secured, allowing you to concentrate on a great night’s sleep.

Although a large majority of electronic devices can be controlled through automation, there are many control options. Inspire AV works to ensure your system is tailored to your specific needs and usage patterns, from the simplest form of control, pressing a button to fully pre-programmed automation.

Automation allows us to convert buttons on keypads and remotes to programmed “scenes”. This can be as simple as “entertainment lighting” which dims the lights in a particular room (or the whole home) to create ambiance. If you want a more complex home theatre scene, you may create one that lowers the shades, dims lighting, fires up your audio and video sources to easily enable the optimal movie watching pleasure.

Sensors & Programing:

With sensors and programing, your electronics can be tailored to provide preset behaviors to enhance your lifestyle and needs. Programing can come in many forms; automatically rise and lower shades according to specified dates and times allowing you to keep the heat out in the summer and warm your home in the winter. Outdoor or Christmas lighting activated by the sunset and set time for automatic shut off so they are not left on all night. Manage your home or cabins HVAC so that when you arrive the temperature is perfect for your arrival.

Sensors can also detect environmental changes to automatically trigger various systems such as lighting, shades, security, and more. Improve safety, carrying full laundry baskets to a dark laundry room or space that senses movement and triggers lighting as you enter.

Controlling your system:

Sometimes it’s a single remote, other times it’s a combination of remotes, keypads and touch panels. There are various options for controlling your system. Inspire AV will work closely with you to find which fits your needs best.


With a large selection of colours and materials, Customizable keypads can seamlessly match your décor. Custom engraved buttons also make identification easier than ever and with back lit controls there will be no more searching in the dark for your keypads.

Handheld Remotes:

Handheld remotes are still the mainstay of the home. Inspire AV can find one to fit your need and budget. Whether it is a standard universal remote to control multiple devices or a remote with a viewing screen on it so you can see who’s at the front door while still watching the game, there is something for everyone.

Touch Panels & Devices:

Touch panels are used to provide a wide range of control. From thermostats to selecting streaming audio services. These displays allow you to adjust every aspect of your system and create an appealing visual for system control.

Our automation systems will provide ease of access and consistency through all your touch panels and devices allowing you to enjoy your system and not worry about learning a half a dozen interfaces.
