Q: What types of home conveniences can I expect with Scena Systems?
A: You can have complete control of many features and products in your home. For instance, you can control the blinds and shade on one window to close as you turn on your home theater to watch a movie. Or set up a whole-house “good morning” scenario whereby lights in the bedroom and bath turn on, shades open slightly in the kitchen café, and your TV turns on your favorite station. All at whatever time you decide is right for you, and all easily changeable, if needed.
Q: Can I have just one feature in my home made “smarter?”
A: You choose the level of convenience and “smartness” that meets your desires and budget. For example, you may want a system that controls just the exterior lights around your home, or an entire “Party Mode” for your lanai and deck area complete with audio/video, colorful lighting, intercom, and voice controls for your pool and spa.
Q: Are smart homes just for those who are building new?
A: No. Scena Systems can easily retrofit existing homes to install the level of convenience that’s right for you. For those building a home, this is an opportune time to build in all the conveniences that you want now with expansion capabilities for the future.
Q: What are some of the more popular configurations?
A: Some homeowners want to dim the lights, close the shades, and have the TV turn on when their favorite program begins. Some want to control window coverings at pre-set times to reduce the risk of direct sunlight harming their furniture. Other popular choices include the ability to create “Modes,” such as Party Mode and Goodnight Mode, each predefined to create just the right mode — all at the touch of a single button.
Q: How many different controls or touch screens do I need?
A: You may choose to have one remote control, keypad or touch-screen panel for your setup, or have several controls located at various points throughout the home to control various individual aspects of the overall system. Choose whatever is most convenient, comfortable and smart for you. For example, some customers choose one control to eliminate the need to walk from room to room to adjust drapes, lights, temperature, and audio/video components when they’re ready to retire for the night.
Q: Do you use proprietary products and applications whereby if I need service or repairs I have to purchase parts exclusively through Scena Systems?
A: No. Homewerks by Scena Systems is built on “open” standards so you will never be locked into a dedicated solution, and you can expand your system anytime.
