Cornelius Electrical Contractors can help you control almost any electronic product in your home through a remote control, smartphone, or computer with a home automation system. Dwellings equipped and operating with these automation systems are often called “Smart Homes”.


Home automation can include lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), appliances, and audio/visual equipment, allowing improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency, and security at the touch of a finger. Home automation can provide independence and improve the quality of life for persons who might otherwise require caregivers or assisted living. Cornelius Electrical Contractors will evaluate your system requirements and personal needs and provide you with simple and intuitive automation that integrates with your entire wiring system while potentially reducing energy consumption.

Lighting Control

Automated lighting systems are about much more than just turning the lights on or off. Modern automated systems can be programmed to create “scenes,” which allow you to set the lighting for specific situations. For instance, you can create a scene that sets the lighting for family movie night, a scene for quiet romantic evenings, or a scene to keep halls and bathrooms dimly lit for nighttime visits.

Motorized Shades and Drapes

Motorized shades, drapes, blinds, and other window coverings can be controlled by remote control or set to open or close at a specific time of day or even depending on the brightness of the sun coming into your home. They are great for living areas, bedrooms, and home theatres.

For Your Commercial Building or Facility

Need to reduce the glare on computer screens for your board meeting or darken the room to view a PowerPoint? Don’t interrupt your presentation to fumble with curtains and blinds; sheer or blackout shades transform the functionality of your office at the click of a button.

Remote Control

In addition to having your home control itself through preset schedules and programs, you can control many features of a Smart Home through remote control devices. These can be handheld devices, much like a universal remote for your television, or you can control items remotely through your computer or smartphone.
