As a Crestron programming company that has been in the industry for almost 20 years now (official 20th anniversary coming in September), we find ourselves being contacted to complete projects all over the country. In our early years, we serviced mainly the San Diego and Orange County areas of Southern California, since that’s where we were headquartered at the time, but as some of our clients moved, bought second homes, or referred us to others in different parts of the country, we found ourselves traveling more to complete residential programming projects using Crestron. One place we’ve been to multiple times for residential Crestron programming work is Palm Springs.
We love Palm Springs for its laid back atmosphere and for the unique homes you find there that are often built to fit in with the iconic desert landscape.
We’ve found that many of the upscale homes in Palm Springs are used as vacation homes or seasonal (winter) homes. Even those who do live in Palm Springs full time tend to travel quite a bit—especially in the very hot summer months. As such, Palm Springs homeowners tend to want remote control of their home’s systems. They want to be able to do things like control the temperature of their home from afar or manage their security system while they’re away.
Palm Springs homeowners tend to also like their homes to be set up for entertaining. More than almost anywhere else, they want to have their AV systems extend from the indoors to the outdoors in a seamless fashion. As such, we do a lot of programming for distributed audio systems and lighting systems that allow homeowners to create the perfect atmosphere for their guests—both indoors and out.
When we work with Palm Springs homeowners who have never had a Crestron control system in their home, they are often unaware of all the options that are available. They may have a general sense of how the system allows them to control their lighting, HVAC, or security systems from their phone or tablet, but there is so much more that can be done using Crestron programming. A home’s systems can be completely customized according to the homeowner’s lifestyle, habits, and preferences.
Maybe you’re someone who likes to keep close tabs on your home’s energy and water usage. A Crestron system can help with that. Or perhaps you want to carefully monitor who comes and goes while you’re away and what areas of the property they have access to. A Crestron programming company like AVPA can help with that as well.
The options for customized control and programmable features are almost endless with Crestron. When we first meet with new clients, we ask a lot of questions about how they use their home and what they’re looking for in a customized AV system or smart home system. Then, we make suggestions based on our years of experience working in high-end homes for clients with a variety of different needs and wants. We pride ourselves on our communication, knowing that fostering an open dialogue between our company and our clients yields the best outcomes.
If you have a home in Palm Springs and want to upgrade it with the latest in smart home technology or a customized AV system, we can definitely help! Contact us today to get started or to have your initial questions answered.
