Environmental Control

Environmental Control

Who doesn’t want to be comfortable? Nobody, which is why Environmental Control is essential in every home. Environmental control encompasses devices such as HVAC, Lighting, and Shading. It offers comfort, convenience and energy savings.

HVAC

Wouldn’t it be nice to never have to worry about freezing pipes or exuberant fuel costs?Forgetting to adjust your thermostats before you leave your house can now be a thing of the past. With a mobile device and the simple swipe of your finger you can remotely control any HVAC system. Matter of fact you don’t even have to control it at all. With a TOAD HVAC Control System the room temperatures of your house can automatically adjust based on pre-programmed customized settings. If you think your lifestyle is too unpredictable to conform to any setting than have TOAD set you up with an HVAC system that will adjust itself based on the foot traffic in your home. With HVAC control systems you can override any room temperature at any time, so you can be prepared for whatever life sends your way.

Unfortunately, life’s surprises are not always good, but being prepared for entropy can save you money and aggravation. For example imagine being notified that that your HVAC system was on the fritz. Receiving an alert beforehand would allow you to take action BEFORE you experiencing any costly collateral damage. With a TOAD HVAC control system you can monitor the temperature in any room of your house. If the temperature in that room fluctuates above or below a given perimeter it will automatically send you a notification. This alert enables you to call in a repairman before that wine in your wine room gets too warm or your exotic plants fall victim to a cold fate.

Lighting

Looking for a lighting solution for a single room or multiple rooms? Or do you want to control the light throughout your home? TOAD gives you the freedom to paint with light to customize your space. Using both wired and wireless devices creates highly scaleable solutions that can be easily reconfigured, with no need for rewiring.

We offer lighting controls that connect to several lights in a single room and are used in place of multiple switches. These control utilize an infrared receiver so that your lights can be controlled by handheld remotes.

TOAD lets you do more than turn on and off the lights. We let you dance in the layers between by giving you the ability to dim and design personalized lightscapes that will make you feel like you have your very own genie in a bottle. Landscape lighting, task lighting, accent lighting, and mood lighting—OH MY! You can create your own lighting scenes or select from a preset scene to help you achieve the mood and tone you want for any occasion.

Lighting Control not only creates inviting and comfortable spaces but also saves energy and money. Dimming your lighting reduces energy consumption while extending bulb life, which means fewer bulbs make it into the landfill and more money stays in your pocket. Dimming the lights by 25% saves 20% on your energy consumption. TOAD provides you with total lighting control by being able to remotely check and control your lighting status throughout the house while away from home using your Apple or Android device.

Shading

Letting light into your home and controlling it with the touch of a button is powerful. It acknowledges daylight as a practical, sustainable light source and recognizes that technology has advanced to allow you to precisely control it. Our shading solutions offer quiet, precision control of window treatments for convenient daylight management while saving energy and enhancing décor. This can be accomplished using Roller Shades, Roman Shades, Venetian Blinds or Drapery Systems, which are all fully automatic and programmable.

By electronically controlling your shades, you will be able to lower your cooling costs in the summer or keep warm in the winter by harnessing the sunʼs energy. This system reduces the demands of the heating and cooling systems by regulating the amount of natural light infiltration. TOAD provides you with total shading control by being able to remotely check and control shading status throughout the house while away from home using your Apple or Android device.
