The Latest Home Technology for Interior Design

Samsung Frame TV

Residential Systems Inc. turned 31 years old on June 1. While we’ve witnessed the world of home technology change dramatically over the last 30+ years, one thing has remained the same: Our dedication to bringing the most innovative technology and leading-edge integration techniques into your clients’ homes.

With products ranging from automated lighting and shades, to invisible speakers, TVs that virtually disappear, 4K projectors and screens, and endless ways to customize each, we understand that it can be difficult to sift through the options to find the ideal solution.

The good news? We stay on top of trends so you can focus on design.

Our goal is to eliminate confusion, and provide you with products that not only revolutionize your client’s experience within their homes, but also transform the way you customize your spaces.

Here are a few of our top home-tech picks that are bringing excitement and innovation to interior design in 2018.

Frame TV

The 4K revolution made Samsung’s Frame TV possible. With more than a billion shades of color and four times the resolution of HD, the 4K HDR Pro creates an almost lifelike picture.

This level of resolution not only provides the ultimate viewing experience, it also informs the dual nature of the technology, which can transform into a beautiful work of art with the click of a button. “Art Mode” provides homeowners with a way to effectively hide the TV when not in use by displaying an LED gallery-quality piece that’s indistinguishable from the real thing.

The artwork can then be complemented with a combination of frame material as well as matte layout and color, with thousands of options to choose from. Homeowners can also display their personal photos as art, switching them out at any given time.

The Frame TV changes the game for what you can do with design. No more “deciding what to do with the TV” or creating custom solutions to conceal it.

Lutron’s Palladiom Shades & Keypads

Made by the pioneers of automated window treatments, Lutron’s newest automated shade provides a silent and stylish application specifically crafted to complement interior design.

Unlike other Lutron products, Palladiom was made to be seen.

And, with thousands of fabrics and dozens of metal and bracket finishes, Lutron’s customization options ensure each shade suits the space.

As with all Lutron products, Palladiom activates at the touch of a button. Plus, the system is fully compatible with the beautiful Palladiom keypad and thermostats, which were designed with high-style in mind—a true celebration of design.

Personalized / Human-Centric Lighting

Experts agree that Personalized and Human Centric Lighting is the biggest breakthrough in residential lighting, and Residential Systems Inc. is one of the first to bring this technology to you. Here’s why we’re excited about this type of lighting for the interior design community:

Human-Centric Perspective

Like Night Shift on your iPhone, Human Centric Lighting automatically helps people tune into their circadian rhythm.

This technology, powered by what is called “tunable white light”, brings natural lighting indoors, stimulating the mind in daytime for greater productivity and dimming light at night for better sleep.

According to scientists around the world, this technology promotes better sleep, enhances performance, and overall, encourages a happier and healthier lifestyle.

Personalized Lighting

This lighting technology also revolutionizes the way your clients experience their home with light across the color spectrum.

While the Human-Centric experience is one aspect of “tunable white light” technology, we have discovered that homeowners also like some of the more dramatic lighting options ranging the full color spectrum from warm and cool to playful colors like red, blue, yellow, etc.

With warm and cool settings, paint, fabric and everything in between can be continuously illuminated with the correct light, no matter the time of day.

Art

A snowy landscape portrait illuminated with cool tones looks crisp and clear, whereas a colorful still life under the same light looks stale and flat.

Fabric

Showcase exquisite fabric and draperies the way they were meant to be seen at any time of day with strategically placed light fixtures. Cool tones look crisp under a cool light setting, while warm tones appear more vibrant under the perfect mix.

Events

Dinner parties, kids birthday parties, or everyday living room dance parties will never be the same with customized color experiences. The Personalized Lighting concept allows your client to change the tones in a room to match the mood. Spanning the spectrum, color options help create illuminated experiences that are personal and unique.

Interested in seeing this type of lighting in action? Our new showroom has a fully functional home theater room where you can live demo the systems for your clients.
