Smart Lock

Smart Lock Pro by August

Smart locks are a convenient and easy way to stay in control of the comings and goings of your home, even when you're away. The August Smart Lock Pro can be used on exterior doors or to limit access within the home. Grant access with permanent or temporary access codes, get notifications when the kids arrive home, and never be locked out of the house again.

Comtech can install a smart lock and help you integrate it with your home automation system.

Smart Lighting

Caséta by Lutron

Caséta by Lutron is leading the way in smart lighting, and one of the best things about Caséta is its ability to integrate with older homes, because it integrates wirelessly. 

Caséta uses scheduling to adjust as sunset changes throughout the season to turn on lights whenever it gets dark. Set personalized "scenes" for different lighting scenarios, and be comfortably in control from anywhere. 

Smart Away technology can turn lights on and off at random to make it appear someone is home when you're away. Manage Caséta effortlessly with dimmers, remotes, the mobile app or use voice assistants like Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri.

Controlled Shades

Qbasic+ by QMotion

Want shade automation without having to completely replace all of your home's current shades? Qbasic+ automated shades use existing shades and turn them from manual to motorized. They can then be controlled by a switch or from your phone with the QMotion smart hub. 

Swap manual shades for Qbasic+ motorized a few at a time if desired, making these controlled shades a very affordable option.

Smart Home Control Hub

Intelligent Home by ELAN

There are so many smart home gadgets that make life easy, but controlling all of them from numerous different apps and devices negates all the simplicity they bring. Integrate all of your smart gadgets and devices into one intelligent hub for streamlined control. 

Comtech can install ELAN Intelligent Touch Panels to bring complete control of your home automation and security into one interactive device that's also accessible from your smart phone.
