What Happen When Smart Home Automation Get Hacked?

Every homeowner wants Smart Home Automation now. If you can control your house remotely, the real question will be “How safe and secure is it” Outdoor Wireless Wifi

According to Kashmir Hill from Forbes: “Googling a very simple phrase led me to a list of “smart homes” that had done something rather stupid. The homes all have an automation system from Insteon that allows remote control of their lights, hot tubs, fans, televisions, water pumps, garage doors, cameras, and other devices, so that their owners can turn these things on and off with a smartphone app or via the Web. The dumb thing? Their systems had been made crawl-able by search engines – meaning they show up in search results — and due to Insteon not requiring user names and passwords by default in a now-discontinued product, I was able to click on the links, giving me the ability to turn these people’s homes into haunted houses, energy-consumption nightmares, or even robbery targets. Opening a garage door could make a house ripe for actual physical intrusion.”    For full article, please click here

Like any other products and services that exist in the market place, there are always 3 different levels: Low (Basic), Mid Level (Better) and Luxury (Best). Since the Smart Home Automation is considered as new technology, many homeowners will be most likely putting their first Smart Home Automation system.

Choosing the right infrastructure and company to implement the Smart Home Automation that fit your lifestyle will be the key. MONACO® AV specializes in providing complete Smart Home Automation solutions for homeowners looking for better or best solutions.

Remove your wall clutter with simple to use Smart Home Automation

If you are building a custom home now, why put up with hard to use old technology?
We can remove all the clutter and wall acne wall-acne-IMG_0261crop

The 5 biggest Smart Home Automation Myths, DEBUNKED
1. It costs so much. While the cost of building a smart home automation could be very expensive, it is a direct relation with the property itself. A typical big custom home tends to have more lighting loads, climate zones, security cameras, shades, audio and video compared to a basic track home. Worst yet, some people are comparing the total cost of the whole house technology with the price of a television set. Although television set could be part of whole house technology, after all what’s more important is to build the correct foundation and infrastructure that needs to be very reliable and functioning 24/7. Typically, the cost of building a smart home automation will be around $10-$50 per square feet. Please see our Home Automation made simple guide.

2. Smart Home Automation will never become standard. That statement could be true prior 1995, prior to the explosion of the internet. However, we are living in “internet of things” where people want everything simpler and faster. With a simple Google search, try to type in “Home Automation” and you will see even Staples (the office supply mega store) Lowes, ADT, AT&T, Verizon, Home Depot carry Home Automation. What that means is the masses with average homes and average incomes will HAVE some sort of Home Automation in their home. Now, if you are building a multimillion dollars custom home, you MUST incorporate reliable & robust smart home automation into your requirement, otherwise your house resale value will be dropped. Remember, when Smart Phone first came out, only the tech savvy and successful businessmen used them, now everyone in every street corner is using Smart Phones.

3. They break a lot, they are not reliable. We have been designing, building and installing Crestron smart system since 2005. We received numerous phone calls from home owners with their so-called smart home automation system break a lot and they are not reliable. Most of them are related to poorly designed system, either they used the wrong products (technology that is designed for smaller homes aka under 2000 square feet) or company they hired simply just an installation company with no expertise and technical team members to support large home and complex system. Our team member consists of Home Technology Consultants, System Engineers, System Designers, Project Managers, Installation & Integration Technicians, and Programmers. Over the years, we have the “know how” to design, build and install the right solutions for your large luxury custom home.  BUYER BEWARE click here!

4. Smart Home Automation is hard to use and complex. The purpose of having smart home is to simplify and enhance your lifestyle. Having said that, “simple to use” system is very different that “simple” system. Most of “simple to use” system in reality is a very complex system in the background and requires team of experts to make that happen. For instance, the Apple IPhone, it is a very simple to use system, but yet very complex in the background and requires thousands of man hours to make it happen.

5. Technology will become obsolete. As you probably already know, technology will never stops and always continuous to evolve. The good news is if we design, build and install you the right system to begin with, that system can be easily expanded and upgraded in the future. We have expanded and upgraded our clients’ system that we built more than 5 year ago. They are many Smart Home Automation systems out there; however MONACO® is proud to be partnered with the most innovative and financially stable Smart Home manufacturers: Crestron® and URC®.Got clutter Crestron Smart Home Automation Monaco Av dealer

Instantly streams music wirelessly or wired from Apple® devices to a Crestron audio distribution system— from any room in the house.

Crestron Apple Airplay Music Solution Home Automation Monaco AVThe Network Stream Player (CEN-NSP-1) instantly streams music wirelessly or wired from Apple® devices to a Crestron audio distribution system— from any room in the house. Streaming for the whole family

The Network Stream Player gives each member of your family complete audio freedom. Easy to use, the player provides both wired and wireless options for streaming music from iPod®, iPhone®, or iPad® to a Crestron audio distribution system. Access all your iTunes® music while controlling the listening experience with a Crestron app or touch screen. Get all the joys of wireless music without having to access a separate system. The all-in-one streaming solution you’ve been waiting for is here.

Stream Apple with CrestronWireless streaming using AirPlay
Use AirPlay® to instantly connect to your own dedicated Network Stream Player. With one touch, turn on your home audio system, and start enjoying your favorite music. When integrated with a whole house audio system, such as Sonnex®, you can use the Crestron app (or a Crestron touch screen) to direct your music to any room or every room in the house. This opens the door to literally every single Internet radio service with an iOS® app.

Plug in via USB
In addition to wireless AirPlay connectivity, the Network Stream Player enables connecting an iPhone or iPod to a player via USB 2.0 using any Apple dock and/or cable. Wired connectivity opens up a world of possibilities with Crestron contrcen_nsp_1ol and Apple services,

 

 

including seamless integration with iCloud® and iTunes Match®. One great application is an iPod touch® connected to each CEN-NSP-1, hidden in a rack, syncing to iCloud via Wi-Fi®. Now, your other iOS devices are free for personal use while listening to iTunes music. Use the phone or tablet instead for texting, emailing, browsing the Internet, playing games, or taking photos.

Browse, search, and select among songs, albums, artists, and playlists from either the Crestron app on a personal device or Crestron touch screens. Since the content is on the wired device in the rack, you don’t have to carry around your personal device if you don’t want to, and the music never “drops out” due to inconsistent Wi-Fi connectivity or when the phone rings. Try that with a wireless bridge!

Crestron Apple Airplay Touch ScreenPerhaps the most powerful benefit of wired USB connectivity is seamless integration with Apple services. Each iPod touch connected to a Network Stream Player should be setup as normal with an Apple ID and an iCloud and iTunes Match account. Then, whenever someone makes changes to their iTunes library, those changes show up on all devices on their account, including any Crestron touch screens. Create playlists and download content on vacation or on a business trip; when you get home, it’s all there on the touch screens. Rip a CD on your home computer or laptop – it’s all there, everywhere. Delete songs on your iPad – all gone from your Crestron system too.
