Home Automation Tips for Gamers
Do you remember the early days of video games that consisted of nothing more than a white ball bouncing between two
paddles on either side of the screen? If not, you are probably not old enough to remember a world without digital
technology. But that also means you are probably a perfect candidate for using home automation to enhance the gaming
Modern gamers are, more often than not, looking for an immersive experience that helps them escape the world they
live in so that they can enjoy a fantasy world for a time. But that's not easy to do in your living room. Combining home
automation with gaming can make it possible for today's gamers to find that elusive total immersion experience. Below
are a few tips for making it happen.
1. Create an Immersive Lighting Scene
With the right home automation devices, every light in your house can be programmed to turn on or off according to
various scenes you create. So create an immersive gaming scene. When you are ready to start playing, grab your
smartphone and activate the scene. Your home automation system will take over from there.
Here is an example: your gaming scene could turn off all the first-floor lights with the exception of one or two in your
gaming room. Those few remaining lights could be dimmed or, in the case of LED technology, colored in such a way as to
enhance the experience of your game. It's all very technological and awesome.
2. Create a Sound System Scene
For an additional investment above and behind your home automation system, you can purchase sound system
components that can also be programmed according to various audio scenes. One scene could pipe your favorite music
throughout the home as you are cleaning and doing other household chores, while another could turn off the main
sound system when activating the gaming scene. Combined with surround sound equipment, audio scenes can create
the ultimate gaming audio that makes you feel like you are in the center of the action.

3. Activate Everything with a Single Button
The truly creative gamer with the right software can tie everything together in a single control app. With just the touch
of a button, the TV can be turned on, the game system activated, the lights dimmed, the shades drawn, and the sound
system switched to surround sound.
All of this isn't really necessary, but it is pretty cool. Imagine having friends over for dinner followed by an evening of your
favorite video games. They will be amazed to see your immersive gaming environment appear automatically just by
activating the gaming scene on your smartphone.
Of course, making all of this happen requires the right devices and a central control system, all backed by a strong Wi-Fi
network. Without these three components, you will not have much of an automated gaming experience. Therefore, it's
best to buy as many of your home automation devices as possible from a single provider and brand. This dramatically
increases compatibility and functionality.
The Gaming of the Future
Creating an immersive gaming experience with home automation may seem a bit out of reach for technology novices.
But as home automation devices and software become more advanced, the idea of automating the gaming experience is
getting closer to reality. Some home automation enthusiasts have already achieved the Holy Grail; others are
experimenting with different devices to see if they can make it work.
It is possible that an automating gaming experience will define the gaming of the future. We could be on the verge of a
new level of immersion.
