Recommendations For Home Automation?

We currently install alarms, access control systems, and video surveillance and would like to be able to offer our clients the ability to:

  • control their lights and thermostats with an app or from a workstation
  • setup schedules

We install Alarm.com and C24 for residential and small business. Looking for a commercial solution.

Any products you recommend or should stay away from? Any suggestions are appreciated.
