Smart home technology is all the rage these days! There are smart home products for every home, at almost any price point. Some homes use off-the-shelf products, while others go for completely customized systems. Homeowners opting for a fully integrated, custom smart home setup often make use of Crestron technology, which is considered the gold standard in the industry.
Companies like AV Programming Associates (AVPA), which provides Crestron Programming in Nevada, find themselves in all types of homes in their line of work, but none quite compare to the luxurious Lake Tahoe residence for which they recently provided programming. This exclusive home in Lake Tahoe’s Crystal Bay is truly an exceptional property. It features a large main residence, a guest house, a beach house, and a caretaker’s apartment on its five acres. The home’s private glass-enclosed funicular takes the homeowners and their guests from the main house on the hill down to the lake.
The property already had an existing Crestron system in place, but the homeowners were looking to make some upgrades and address some issues in the system. AVPA was brought in as the Lake Tahoe Crestron programming company to make the upgrades, even though they weren’t the original programmers of the system.
The main upgrade they made was to the home’s expansive lighting system—switching it from Lutron Illumination to Lutron QS. Lutron QS is an energy-saving lighting system that also allows the homeowners to integrate the control of the home’s lighting, both inside and out. AVPA was also able to provide the homeowners with secure remote access to all of their home’s systems, so they can monitor and control them from anywhere in the world, and provide ongoing support to the existing Crestron programming of the home’s audio, video, HVAC, and the funicular.
Not all Crestron programming companies are willing to work on systems programmed by other companies, but AVPA is one of the few companies that specializes in “takeover projects.” Having been in business since 2001, they are confident in their abilities to troubleshoot, upgrade, and support older systems. They’ve pretty much seen it all when it comes to smart home systems using Crestron and will work on systems that other companies won’t touch.
Not all homes require the extensive amount of Crestron programming that this Lake Tahoe residence does, but it illustrates the fact that AVPA has the capability to support even the most complex systems. It’s what they’ve been doing for almost 20 years with great success.
