Staying at home - what makes it possible

Smart TVs, much like smartphones and smart home devices, offer internet connectivity and support for a range of apps. This opens up a world of new entertainment options, from streaming video on Netflix and Hulu to playing games, checking social media, and controlling a whole house full of connected devices.

With smart lighting, traditional light bulbs are replaced with smart light bulbs, which screw into the existing sockets in your home. An internet-connected hub connects all of the bulbs, allowing you to control the lighting in your home from a centralized location whether you are at home or away.

Smart thermostats allow you to remotely control your home’s temperature via mobile or internet-connected device. This unique capability makes operation more convenient, offering greater control of heating and cooling, and thus, energy savings. 

Smart security cameras incorporate Wi-Fi connections that allow them to be viewed and controlled remotely using a smartphone app. Many can also upload the footage to the Cloud for storage, eliminating the need for a potentially complicated on-site storage setup..

CONTROL SYSTEM

At the heart of any Sapient Home is the control system. Managed by a central processor and accessed via smartphone and tablet apps, remote controls and keypads, this is the part of your home’s technology that turns complex electronics into intuitive, user-friendly devices. Custom one-touch ‘scenes’ combine several common actions into a one-button process–easily trigger events such as climate changes, lighting activation, or adapt to visitors entering the driveway. 

HOME ENTERTAINMENT


TVs, speakers, and AV sources (cable boxes, streaming media players, video game systems and the like), are the core of your home entertainment system. The visible components range from big and bold to invisible, but your ability to operate them is always consistent. We make form and function work together, so we can deliver the content you want to the spaces you want without sacrificing your home’s aesthetic.  

ENERGY AND CLIMATE CONTROL

Perhaps the most palpable of our solutions, integrating smart thermostats into your home’s system enables you to set a temperature control schedule, make changes remotely, and adjust zones quickly. This helps you maintain a comfortable home for all, minimize costs associated with cooling and heating, and be quickly alerted when a furnace or AC unit is on the fritz

SMART WINDOW TREATMENTS

 

Adding power to your window treatments and connecting them to your smart home system enhances control of natural light and privacy for all scenarios and seasons, and it does it with high style and simplicity. This sets your home up for easier temperature control, glare reduction, on-demand privacy, and protection for your furniture and artwork from harsh natural light–all without you ever having to think about it.  

LIGHTING CONTROL

 

Replacing ordinary light switches with a smart lighting system composed of connected dimmers and keypads lets you turn on groups of lights from anywhere in the home (or the world!). You'll create a safe and secure environment whether you’re at home or away, reduce your energy footprint, and enjoy custom-designed lighting scenes for every occasion to bring out the beauty of your home. Lighting control done by experts is an asset no home should be without! 

NETWORK & REMOTE MANAGEMENT

 

Anchoring your home’s smart technology is our central network, operated by IT professionals who understand how to deliver fast, stable, and secure networks. With secure remote support, you can count on us to help minimize downtime. From the attic to the basement, your network and Wi-Fi will work hard for you, and we’ll make sure your system reliably delivers what your family needs. 

OTHER TECHNOLOGIES TO CONSIDER FOR YOUR SMART HOME

HOME THEATER & MEDIA ROOMS

 

These are the spaces where you enjoy that big sporting event, an epic movie, or the latest video game.  Let your imagination run wild with a dedicated theater, or discretely integrate home theater capabilities into your everyday living space. We design around your tastes and then tune for performance, so the end result is an entertainment venue that’s always accessible.   

SAFE HOME SOLUTIONS

Having a security system is a good start, but having one tailored to your home and habits is much more effective. These systems allow you to control and provide access to your home for dog walkers, staff, or your friends–whether you’re in London or in the kitchen.
