                                                    Paragon Technology Group’s architectural lighting systems illuminate the
                                                    warmth and character of your home, awakening color and enhancing the
                                                    mood and design of spaces, intimate and grand, while maintaining a safe
                                                    and secure environment. Paragon works closely with professional lighting
                                                    designers to provide you with distinguished optimal lighting setting of
                                                    enduring quality and incomparable style for differing times of the day
                                                    and night. Pre-programmed lighting modes provide additional security
                                                    and convenience as frequently used pathways through your home are
                                                    illuminated or the whole house turns on with a touch of a button. One
                                                    button control creates dramatic entrances, brilliantly lit but still inviting,
                                                    the perfect blend of space and intimacy.
Motorized shades not only make a home more livable and
comfortable, they also provide UV protection and lower energy
costs. Paragon offers the design, installation and integration
of ultra-quiet motorized shades or drapery systems which are
typically controlled via the lighting system or home control system.
Integration of the shades with the home control system allows
the shades to be automatically lowered or raised at specific times
or under certain conditions such as entering or leaving the home.
Multiple fabric and styles are available and the Paragon team can
accommodate the most demanding size and design requirements.
Paragon has been energy and environmentally conscious for years. The lighting systems we
offer decrease electricity usage by setting the lights to 90% instead of 100% for everyday
function, saving 10% on the lighting energy. The solar shades we install reduce solar gain in any
room, allowing the climate control system to maintain a more consistent temperature. Utilizing
newer technology to control the home’s climate we provide scheduling that not only affects the
room but the entire system. Finally, we can integrate occupancy information from the security
system to cue the Energy Management System.
                            ENERGY MANAGEMENT
                            Providing awareness motivates homeowners to make educated resource
                            consumption choices and proves that conservation efforts make a
                            tangible difference. Using a combination of resources, Paragon’s Energy
                            Management System actively monitors electric, gas and water usage in
                            real time, while automatically calculating your carbon footprint. Based on
                            the system implemented, we can determine energy usage for your entire
                            residence, a single appliance or an individual light. You decide.

                            >> What percentage of water usage is irrigation, pool/spa, laundry, or
                               even my 45-minute shower?
                            >> How much natural gas does my home and overall property use?
                            >> How much electricity is consumed while my home is occupied or
                               while it is vacant?

                            Paragon answers these questions by utilizing communicating sensor
                            devices that capture and store usage data for analysis and presentation.
                            The Paragon system monitors the overall consumption or breaks it down to
                            a specific device in the house, allowing you to make intelligent decisions
                            on how to conserve energy and natural resources.

                            VIRTUAL HOME MANAGER
                            Knowledge is useful only if you can easily access it. Paragon’s Virtual
                            Home Manager allows you to remotely access your home’s settings via
                            the internet. Adjust the temperature or lighting, enable the dormant mode
                            or prior to your visit, wake the house all from a web-based application.
                            Simply use your computer, PDA, or cell phone to access your Virtual Home
                            Manager console from anywhere in the world.

                            Paragon also has the ability to conduct remote system diagnostics, better
                            preparing our technicians if there is a need for a service call, or completing
                            some minor system repairs immediately over the internet.

                            Our overall mission is to provide an eco-friendly solution that maximizes
                            your experience every time you are in the home.

                                                 SECURITY SYSTEMS
                                                 The safety and well-being of our clients and their families are top priorities for Paragon Technology Group. We design and
                                                 install residential alarm systems to meet your security needs, as well as local jurisdiction requirements. While administering
                                                 fire, intrusion, and environmental protection and notification, the system can also integrate with the home control system to
                                                 provide remote notification and control.

                                                 Security systems also provide a tremendous amount of information about the house which allows Paragon to make educated
                                                 environmental decisions based on the system status. For example, if the security system has been armed for four days, set-
                                                 points are altered and the shades are lowered. Also, if motion sensors are inactive for 10 minutes, room lights are turned off.

                                                 Paragon is always cognizant of aesthetically balancing device placement while meeting functional and code requirements.

                                                 SURVEILLANCE SYSTEMS
                                                 Paragon can provide discreet video surveillance systems for your home including interior, exterior, and gate applications.
                                                 These systems may include high-definition (HD), pan/tilt/zoom and network-based cameras and can be viewed from in-wall
                                                 touch panels, televisions in the home, and remotely via a handheld device or personal computer from anywhere in the world.
                                                 Digital video recording and camera playback are also standard components of any system.
                                                                                         telephone systems :: computer networks
