Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) February 12, 2009
Uptime http://www.uptimeus.com, recently completed a 100K New Jersey home automation project, demonstrating its diverse capabilities for serving the Metro New York region. Project specifications on this luxury Bergen county home included light control; heating & cooling systems; complete audio & video distribution; security cameras; alarm & security systems; phone system; and home server, network and firewall installations.
"It's a fully integrated project that really shows our capabilities from," says Uptime President Einat Sibony. "Even the HVAC and light control system demonstrate energy efficiency benefits that can save the homeowners money over a lifetime."
Primarily a NYC area IT services firm, Uptime has seen an increase in requests for home and office automation systems. These sophisticated systems are integrated into your current network to offer automated lighting, heating and air conditioning, or security features and can save homeowners and business owners money on utility bills while ensuring safety and comfort.
"It used to be that automation was out of reach for most property owners," says Sibony. "But newer technologies mean that lighting automation and even DVR surveillance systems are neither prohibitively expensive nor difficult to use."
NJ lighting automation has become one of the most common and easily-installed automation projects in the New York region, because many homeowners and business owners are choosing to renovate or upgrade rather than relocate. From outside motion detection lighting that automatically turns on when you pull into your driveway to whole house lighting with timed settings, these systems range from simple to complex in both features and ease of installation.
More sophisticated features integrate lighting and heating so that your home or office is properly lit and heated when you arrive. By only heating or cooling the building when the owner anticipates it will be occupied, homeowners and commercial property owners can save thousands of dollars on energy costs.
"Heating and cooling automation is really the easiest way to go green," says Sibony. "Why waste energy cooling an office during the evening and weekends when you can set the timer for an hour before you get in?"
Surveillance systems are also popular automated features. In a CCTV system networked cameras send digital video over an intranet or LAN, all of which is managed through software installed on a remote server. Those who need a more sophisticated system may choose Digital Video Recorder (DVR) Security Systems. DVR surveillance systems have better quality picture and offer advanced features like motion detection and e-mail alerts. CCTV may be more suited for homeowners whereas DVR surveillance is perfect for multi-entrance commercial properties.
IT firms like Uptime are finding that more and more clients are requesting sophisticated automated services. By integrating these features into a current network the user can manage and troubleshoot from his or her desktop, a mobile device, or a remote access point. It also means routine upgrades are hassle-free and can even be monitored by an outsourced IT firm like Uptime.
As part of its efforts to better serve its IT customers in the tri-state area, Uptime is in the process of revamping its home automation services. New information about these and other IT service additions and changes will be posted on the Uptime website shortly at (http://www.uptimeus.com).
