Music and media are influential factors in your life; it gives you joy, sparks inspiration, informs you about the world, and gives pace to the day. Your favorite media can stream through your San Diego, CA house like sunlight from windows or cool air from vents. Audio-video installation technology has made it possible to access any content from anywhere in the world and deliver it to any device in your home.
While technology is central to our daily lives, it need not be the center of our home's focus. Electronics and gadgets have a way of interrupting interior design's flow and aesthetics. At One Touch Living, we understand that our systems are a means to an end, not the reason for a home.
Curious to learn more about how we work closely with architects and interior designers to bring your home to life? Read more below.
Harness the Power of Your Voice to Control Your Home

Voice control is a long sought-after technology. The first practical voice-control unit was made by Bell Labs in 1962, a device called the ‘Shoebox.’ It recognized a voice speaking the numbers 0-9 and a few mathematical commands. We have come a long way since then, with voice command ‘smart speakers’ becoming nearly ubiquitous.
While voice control is now more popular, not all implementations offer the same feature sets or flexibility level. Control4 has embraced voice commands as an interface from very early on and now supports complete home automation. Whether you are looking to control a single device or your entire Santa Fe, CA home system, as a Control4 dealer, we can happily state that it is our favorite system to integrate with Alexa.

When it Comes to Home Wi-Fi, Mesh Networks Are Becoming a Popular Alternative to Traditional Routers
TAGS: Home WiFi | Mesh Networks
You may not know this, but there are other options besides traditional routers that connect your devices to the home Wi-Fi. Mesh networks are becoming more common in households all over California as an alternative to standard routers.
A router is a central hub that syncs with traffic from your favorite devices like your laptop and tablets. But a mesh network contains multiple “nodes” that spread the Wi-Fi signal while keeping it powerful. Cooperation is the name of the game when it comes to mesh networks.
Along with the advantages of a mesh network, there are also some disadvantages. At One Touch Living, our team of professionals can help you decide whether or not a mesh network is right for you and your home in Rancho Santa Fe.
