Normally our blog posts are centered around project progress and industry “tips and tricks”. We wanted to do something a little different with this blog post and feature a local company called Genesis Control Systems Ltd.

Have you ever left on vacation and started questioning if you remembered to turn down the thermostat… did you set the security system… is the coffee machine still running? I know I have!

With a smart home, you can have the ability to check your devices remotely so you can relax and enjoy your vacation. Virtually any electrical device can be connected to your home network and controlled by a tablet, smartphone or through voice commands. How cool is that?!

Genesis Control Systems is a smart controls and automation company based right here in Edmonton! They specialize in the integration of smart systems into homes and businesses to provide a simple way to live and operate with a sophisticated setup. They provide custom solutions for lighting control, automated shades/blinds, multi-room audio/video, climate control, security and surveillance integration and IP networks. Not only will you have a customize system, but you can have your own custom app and user interface to control it all. Genesis Control Systems make “smart” simple.

Not only will you feel like James Bond using voice control to lower your blinds and turn on your lights, but you’ll be able to save on energy costs as well. Lights can be turned off when no one is in the room, your home can adjust the temperature to heat/cool based on your schedule and can easily be changed with just a click of a button.
