How to Improve the Learning Experience With Classroom Automation

How to Improve the Learning Experience With Classroom Automation

Building Automation Solutions Can Enhance Students’ Productivity

Sometimes it’s hard to imagine how much technology has become a part of students’ lives.

From the moment they wake up until just before they go to sleep, many children never take their eyes off of a screen.

Far from an indictment about their behavior, they’re essentially capable of receiving and processing information at a lightning pace. It’s the duty of educators to take advantage of that, and it starts with building automation solutions.

In this blog, we’ll illustrate how enhancing the technological presence in the classroom can improve student engagement and facilitate the learning experience.

Make Your Home Energy Efficient With These 3 Smart Upgrades

Make Your Home Energy Efficient With These 3 Smart Upgrades

Stay Conscious of the Environment While Enhancing Your Oahu, HI Residence

You might not realize it, but Hawaii already is one of the most energy-efficient states within the U.S.

According to a 2017 WalletHub survey, Hawaii ranked No. 1 in the country in lowest electricity consumption per consumer and No. 1 in lowest natural-gas consumption per consumer.

If you’re reading that statistic and are surprised, perhaps it’s time you consider an energy management system for your home.

You can make your Oahu, HI residence energy efficient and environmentally conscious with the following smart home upgrades. Keep reading if your property’s energy consumption already is low, too.

Best of all, each system we’ll discuss below can add convenience to your day-to-day life.

SEE ALSO: Why Invest in a Smart Home Security System?

Smart Thermostat

Imagine your thermostat sensing when you leave for work in the morning, and it automatically turns on “eco” mode. Or, picture it showing your energy consumption patterns and how you can consume more efficiently.

It’s possible with a smart thermostat.

While you’re away from your home, your thermostat can regulate itself to use as little heating and cooling technology as possible. And at the end of the month, you can review during which times of day you spent the most to regulate your home’s temperature and in turn have a better knowledge of how your energy management system can save you more.

Another great benefit of a smart thermostat is that you can access it anywhere you go. If you want to cool your residence before returning home, you can set the temperature from a smartphone or tablet application.

Lighting Control System

With smart lighting control, you don’t have to worry about leaving lights on and spending unnecessary energy.

From the convenience of your handheld device or an in-wall keypad within your home, you can turn off every light with the press of a button.

When you’re home, you can adjust the amount of light each room receives through dimming options, and you also can create lighting “scenes” that illuminate specific areas – like a walkway to the kitchen when you wake up in the morning.

We also recommend you use LED bulbs instead of incandescent bulbs, so you save on energy consumption even while you have the lights on.

Motorized Shades

End the hassle of raising and lowering each blind in your home and instead have them motorized.

You can save time and energy with a motorized shading system, in which you can raise or lower your blinds with the single press of a button. Or, you can have them entirely automated.

At sunrise, your blinds automatically can lower so that light enters the room and heat stays out. Your shades will allow your home to stay cool so that you can simultaneously stay comfortable and conserve energy.

If any of these technologies sound appealing to you, we are experts at installing them to perfectly fit your Oahu, HI home’s energy management system needs. To find out more, all you need to do is click on the chat button on the bottom right of your screen or call (808) 386-5963. We look forward to hearing from you!

Is Your Network Strong Enough for Your Smart Home?

How Home Networking Impacts System Performance

Picture this: you’ve just gotten home from a long day at the office. You pull up to your driveway in Oahu, HI, walk into your house and sit down in a comfortable media room ready to watch a little Thursday Night Football. But when you try to turn on your AV system, you notice it takes a little while longer than normal. And the signal – normally crisp, beautiful high-definition, is lagging and pixelated. Eventually, you don’t get a signal at all. Why is this happening? The answer may be out of date home networking. If you want to avoid this type of situation, keep reading.

How Conference Room Automation Makes Your Business More Impressive

How Conference Room Automation Makes Your Business More Impressive

Improve Operations With Smart Solutions for Your Oahu, HI Business

The way your business looks and feels is essential to closing the types of deals that will make you successful. If you’re running a slip-shod operation out of an old building, that’s the impression you present to your clients. But if you’ve invested in modern conference room automation solutions, you can impress every potential client who walks through the door. More than that, you can enhance the efficiency of your meetings with easy-to-use solutions. Want to learn more? Keep reading!

Impress With Automated AV

There’s nothing worse than trying to start a presentation and failing to get your AV gear in order. Whether you’re using a screen and projector or 4K digital monitor, speaking to a large room via an integrated sound system or simply trying to control different slides, you need to make sure all of these devices work quickly and efficiently. That’s why you should invest in an automation system.

Automation allows each device to work simultaneously with the touch of a button. When you’re ready to start the presentation, touch the button and watch as the screen lowers, the projector starts, your sound system turns on and your computer feeds the image of your Power Point directly to your video display. It’s simple, it’s efficient and it allows you to focus on the things that really matter.

Integrate Other Technologies for Greater Efficiency

Why stop at AV equipment? Automation can incorporate all of your different devices, including lights, shades and climate. You can create a system that will help you out even more by simplifying the process of setting up for your meetings, but also help you create a more focused space.

Lighting is key to your presentation space. Whether you want a spotlight to draw attention to the speaker, or you want to minimize the distractions of solar glare, you can control it all with the same touch panel device you use for your AV. Tap a button and your conference room becomes the perfect place to present.

Geo-Fencing for Commercial Spaces

Some business owners think geo-fencing is simply for security purposes. Once you cross a certain threshold, your security and surveillance system arms. However, you can also use it to keep your conference room activity confidential.

By installing geo-fencing technology in your conference room, you can share files and data with everyone inside. Once they step outside, those files are automatically removed from their computers or mobile devices. It’s the perfect addition to your conference room automation system.

Are you ready to enjoy better quality meetings, and impress your clients while you’re doing it? Contact Pacific Audio and Communications today for more information!
