Business Automation Makes Running Your Business as Effortless as Breathing

In today’s competitive commercial landscape, businesses must find innovative ways to enhance their client experience to stand out. One powerful tool for achieving this is business automation. By leveraging advanced automation technologies, businesses can streamline operations, improve security, and create a more engaging environment for clients. Let’s take a look at how K C Summers utilized Loxone building automation solutions to provide Exhale Studio Salon with a bespoke customer experience that illustrates the transformative potential of automation for business. 

Inhale Stress, Exhale Salon 

Exhale Studio Salon, a full-service beauty salon and spa, was moving into a new building and needed a building automation solution to create a unique and personalized experience for their clients. Their requirements were specific and multifaceted: 

  • Customized Lighting for Therapists: Each massage therapist had unique lighting preferences that needed to be tailored to their individual workspaces. 

  • Secure Access Control: The building layout necessitated secure access to the back door, which was not visible from the cashier area. This required a robust access control system to ensure the safety and security of both the staff and clients. 

    To meet these needs, Exhale Studio turned to K C Summers, a specialist in integrating Loxone for business automation solutions.

    Lighting Solutions made possible with Automation for Business 

    One of the key aspects of enhancing the client experience at Exhale Studio Salon was through customized lighting solutions. Proper lighting can significantly impact the ambiance and overall client satisfaction in a spa or salon setting. Here’s how K C Summers used business automation to achieve this: 

    • Color-Changing LED Lights: Along the hallway leading to the private spa areas, K C Summers installed color-changing LED lights controlled by the Loxone Miniserver. This not only added an aesthetic appeal but also allowed the salon to create different moods and atmospheres, enhancing the client experience. The ability to adapt the lighting color and intensity helps in creating a relaxing and soothing environment – essential for a spa setting. 


    • Ceiling Trough Lighting: Inside each spa room, ceiling trough automated lighting was integrated to serve as exit lighting leading back to the main salon area. This ensures that clients can easily navigate their way out, even in emergency or low-light conditions. It also adds a touch of sophistication and safety to the spa rooms, contributing to an overall better experience for clients.

    Business Automation for Improved Security and Access Control

    Security is a paramount concern for any business, and Exhale Studio Salon is no exception. With the need for secure access to the back door, business automation played a crucial role in ensuring safety and convenience: 

    • Remote Access Control: K C Summers installed a Loxone access control system on the back door, allowing the receptionist to remotely unlock the door as needed. This feature ensures that only authorized personnel can access certain areas of the salon, enhancing the security of both clients and staff. Remote access control systems are vital for businesses as they provide a secure and efficient way to manage access to different parts of the building. 


    • Enhanced Client and Staff Safety: With the ability to monitor and control access to various parts of the building, Exhale Studio Salon can ensure that clients feel safe and secure during their visit. This level of security is a significant factor in improving client trust and satisfaction, which are crucial for business success. 

    The Broader Benefits of Business Automation 

    The example of Exhale Studio Salon highlights just a few ways in which business automation can enhance client experience. Let’s delve into some broader benefits of automation for business: 

    • Streamlined Operations: Business automation helps streamline various operational tasks, reducing the need for manual intervention. Automated systems can manage lighting, security, HVAC, and other critical functions, allowing business owners and staff to focus more on delivering excellent service to clients. 
    • Energy Efficiency: Automated lighting and HVAC systems can optimize energy usage based on occupancy and time of day. This not only reduces operational costs but also promotes a sustainable and eco-friendly business environment. For instance, automated systems can adjust lighting and temperature settings when rooms are unoccupied, leading to significant energy savings. 
    • Personalized Client Experience: Automation allows businesses to offer personalized experiences to their clients. From customized lighting and music to personalized climate control settings, businesses can tailor their services to meet the specific needs and preferences of their clients. This level of personalization can significantly enhance client satisfaction and loyalty. 
    • Enhanced Security: As demonstrated by Exhale Studio Salon, automated security systems provide an added layer of protection for both clients and staff. Remote access control, surveillance cameras, and automated alarms ensure that the premises are secure at all times, enhancing the overall client experience.
