Enhance Your Business’s Operations with Office Automation
The Benefits of a Smart Business
As a business owner or manager, improving operations is undoubtedly one of your top concerns. Boosting profits, reducing costs, and enhancing customer and employee satisfaction are also high priorities. It’s a lot to consider and a full plate.
Office automation takes some of the workload, creating more efficient operations and giving you a competitive advantage. Now, you have one-touch or automated control over the perfect environment and your business’s security and can keep an eye on the facilities from anywhere in the world.
Let’s explore the options in commercial automation and how it’s distinguishing companies in Overland Park, KS.
The Perfect Environment
At Applause Custom Sight & Sound, we partner with Control4, an industry leader in automation technology. Their automation platform connects to lighting, shades, climate, security, and audio-video equipment, creating seamless one-touch control of your office environment.
We’ll program common scenarios that control all systems with one tap on a designated touchscreen, in-wall keypad, or smartphone app. For example, a “Good Morning” button may set the temperature and lighting, turn on soft background music, raise the shades, and illuminate any video displays, setting the perfect environment for clients and staff.
These systems also reduce operating costs, turning off the lights in unoccupied rooms and lowering and opening shades to increase warmth in the winter and minimize solar heat gain in the summer.
Securing the Office
This automation platform also integrates with security systems, enabling one touch that closes up shop for the day and ensures no vital security measures are forgotten. When the last employee leaves, they tap the "Good Night" button, and the lights dim, the AV equipment turns off, the temperature lowers, the doors lock, and the security arms.
Our certified technicians will program some lights in the interior of the building to remain on for security purposes and program flood lights to illuminate if movement is detected after hours.
Setting the Stage
Those first impressions are critical to your business, and nothing is more impressive than an organized company that embraces technology. Up-to-date video conferencing solutions also ensure a collaborative environment and clear communications among the growing hybrid workforce.
We partner with industry leaders in video conferencing solutions that enable clear, high-resolution images, distinctive audio, and all-important collaboration tools. When integrated with your Control4 platform, staff can set the stage for the perfect video conferencing with fellow team members or clients. One touch adjusts the lights and shades to the ideal setting and turns on the audio-video equipment. When the meeting's over, the room returns to its previous state.
Keeping an Eye on the Company
You can access your business's automation platform from anywhere via your mobile device. Check to see if the doors are locked and the lights are off at the end of the day. See what's happening via security cameras and receive notifications should something unusual occur.
At Applause Custom Sight & Sound, we’re there for our clients every step of the way, from the initial installation to proactive monitoring and 24/7 support. To learn more about office automation or to schedule a complimentary consultation, contact Applause Custom Sight & Sound today.
