Your Local Control4 Pinnacle Diamond Dealer Offers a Customized Approach

When people first start integrating smart technology into their homes, they may begin with a piecemeal approach using DIY smart devices. They start with smart lighting bulbs and then add smart thermostats and a video doorbell. Next, they purchase a smart speaker and indoor camera.

Eventually, they have numerous smart devices, all controlled with separate apps. This approach and outcome are far different than a home automation system created by Applause Custom Sight & Sound, the customer-centric smart home company serving Kansas City, MO, for over two decades.

A home automation platform manages all your smart devices and systems, from climate, lighting, shades, audio and video equipment, security, pool and spa, and more. Your many systems connect to the platform and each other, creating an ecosystem of smart devices that respond to one touch on a touchscreen, automated schedules, sensors, and your voice.
