Home Automation is when the devices in your home work automatically to get a job done, and it can be both convenient and impressive. Simple things, like a lamp timer or an automatic coffee pot, don’t require much effort to use or understand. But once you move on to smart home devices, like complex audio-video systems, smart thermostats, cameras, or controllable lighting systems, it gets increasingly more complicated. And the complexity gets even worse when each device or discrete system has it’s own remote or app.
That’s where home automation comes in. In the world of electronics, this means getting your devices to do things by themselves so you have less to do yourself. It can be as simple as having a single remote for your TV, stereo, and cable box. It can be an app that controls not only your music and TV, but your lights, your door locks, your cameras, and your thermostats … in just one room, or in your entire home. And it can be anything in-between.
Hawthorne Integration Services LLC can bring over 40 years of experience in the home electronics industry to your home. We have worked extensively with many manufacturers in that time, and we know how to tie them together. Tired of needing three remotes to simply put on Netflix? We can help you with that. Want to turn off the lights without getting up, or turn up the thermostat? We can do that. Do you want to see at a glance what all the smart home devices in your house are doing, even if you are away? Hawthorne Integration Services LLC can do that too.
RTI is the heart and brain of a modern home automation control system. An RTI system can control your TV room, your home theater, or your entire home. If a device is controllable, there’s a good chance RTI can control it, from your AV, to your lighting, to your thermostats, to your door locks … and can even tie in to supported alarms and CCTV systems.
RTI offers multiple processors to fit a wide variety of applications and budgets, and can be completely customized to match your home’s décor and your personal tastes. RTI also can provide a number of handheld remotes, in-wall or tabletop touch panels, an app that can run on both Apple and Android mobile devices, or a Windows PC based app.
Hawthorne Integration Services LLC is an authorized RTI dealer, and we can design, program and install your next RTI system, or service your old one. For more information, see their website at RTI Control, or contact us for a consultation.

Home Automation with Voice Control
It’s sometimes difficult to remember a time when we did not have some measure of voice control, and today it is not only common, it’s widespread. We can talk to our cable remotes, we can talk to our TVs, we can talk to our thermostats … and Hawthorne Integration Services LLC can help you set those systems up, as well tie your supported devices into your Amazon Alexa voice AI, or Google Assistant. RTI processors can be controlled directly by them to round out your entire system.
