Founded in 1995 by Tom Higgins, Automated Interiors, LLC is one of the premier custom electronic systems integrators in the tri-state area with offices in New York City, Center City Philadelphia, and Wayne, Pennsylvania. The company’s founding vision was to design, install, and service dedicated home theaters and multimedia rooms with the best technology and equipment on the market, while maintaining and even supplementing the beauty and style of the home. Collaboration with the owner, architect, and interior designer early in the project assures that Automated Interiors’ theaters will perform at the highest level while remaining comfortable and chic. Utilizing the most current technologies as they pertain to room design, acoustical treatment, video projection, and multi-channel digital audio, Automated Interiors achieves results some never thought possible.

After solidifying its position in the market as a leading home theater design and installation company, in 1999 Automated Interiors expanded its capabilities into whole-home systems integration. Our certified and highly trained programmers create software to provide intuitive, simple, and reliable control of all electronic systems, including audio and video distribution, heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, lighting, and security from a single wireless or in-wall touchpanel. An Automated Interiors control system eliminates the numerous mismatched keypads that clutter a home’s walls and is extremely intuitive so that homeowners and guests are able to operate it with ease. Automated Interiors is ever active in its development by attending industry conferences, updating their certifications, and vigorously seeking out the latest technological advances, which they constantly apprise their customers and partners. By providing expert residential electronic systems consultation, design and installation, and an unprecedented level of customer service, Automated Interiors has grown and evolved into a leader in the whole-home integration industry.

It’s dawn and you’re ready to start your day. You roll out of bed and push the wake up button on your bedroom touchscreen keypad. The bedroom lights slowly come up to full brightness over a two-minute time span, giving your eyes an opportunity to adjust to the lights. The master bathroom lights turn on and so does your favorite news channel, which is automatically selected on your bedroom TV. The coffee starts to brew... morning news from web sites download to your TV and you choose to watch your favorite channel or view the downloads.

Leave for work or to play, no worries... Your air conditioning and heating systems keep your home at its preset temperature. Return home and push the “welcome home” button on your keypad or touchscreen. Lighting that you have preselected will turn on, your favorite music will begin to play through flush mounted speakers, and your thermostats will adjust to your preferred home temperature.

Are you ready for the future? It’s here today and Automated Interiors has the products and expertise to pull it all together. Many of the devices in your home can be integrated and controlled with one keypad or touchscreen in each room.

Advanced automation systems provide control of your entire household using one or more keypads or touchscreens. Adjust lighting, house music, thermostats, entertainment, hot tub temperature, and more though one easy-to-use graphic user interface.

Security is a major piece of the puzzle in a home automation system. Nothing can be more important than the safety of your family and home. For example, in an alarm situation, all the lights in a home can come on. The front porch light will flash to alert emergency personnel. The HVAC system will shut down to prevent the possible spread of fire. These systems also have cellular capability which would still provide protection in cases where the phone line could possibly be cut or destroyed.

Surveillance cameras, carbon monoxide and water detection monitoring are also part of an enhanced security system. You can control your system via telephone, smartphone, or internet when you’re not home or if you forgot to arm it during your busy morning routine. Receive a text message or an email letting you know the kids are home from school. There are numerous options that can be streamlined to your family’s lifestyle and personal preference. All of this will add to a homeowners’ piece of mind and comfort in knowing that their home is fully protected.

With technology from Automated Interiors, the ambiance of atmospheric lighting is under your control. With sophisticated, well planned lighting you can transform your space to suit your needs and desires. Improve the aesthetic of your home by replacing unsightly gangs of switches with elegant keypads that complement your interior. Our system allows you to adjust lighting in multiple areas of your home. Keep your kitchen bright for cooking while simultaneously lowering the lights in your dining room for a romantic atmosphere. Automated lighting can be useful for much more than setting the mood; they can make your life more convenient as well. Even outdoor lighting can be controlled. For instance, it can be set to turn on automatically in the evening or to brighten as you enter the driveway. In addition, lights can work automatically in response to a door opening or motion detection. When you leave or arm your security system, all lights can be turned off with one touch. All of our systems can be customized to fit your lifestyle and are scalable from cottages to estates. We also offer hundreds of styles of lighting keypads to match the interior of your home. In a time when energy conservation is becoming more and more of a concern, automated lighting can also function as a useful tool to control your energy consumption. For example, you can set your lights to dim or shut off completely while you are out of the house, and then to turn back on at your expected time of arrival. Set your lights to automatic schedules that will help you save energy while eliminating the need to keep track of every room in a large estate home.
