Technology continues to grow and as a result, the world is changing around us. Companies are becoming more technology-based and daily lives are being more automated. So the question at hand is: 

Are you willing to leap into this automated world and make your home not only more convenient and comfortable but more efficient?

You may have seen videos of luxurious homes with automated features that you thought you could only dream about. However, with the help of Progressive Automations’ user-friendly furniture automation systems and engineering support, you can make this dream a reality.

TV Lifts

TV lifts using Linear Actuators
Imagine you have guests over and after a delicious barbeque prepared by yours truly, you bring them to your newly renovated porch. As the beer and conversations flow, you remember that the Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors game six is on. With a click of a button, a TV emerges out of nowhere and your guests are blown away! What an environment to witness Canadian history being made.
We offer two different types of TV lifts in which one is raised (TY-01), and one is lowered (TY-05’s). The TY-01 can accommodate TV’s from 32” to 60” while our TY-05 series can accommodate up 95” TV’s.
Our engineers have worked very hard designing these lifts to ensure that you do not have to. All you have to do is plug it in and follow a simple set-up procedure!

Standing Desk

Standing DesksWhether you want to do yoga while you work or stretch your legs without losing focus is up to you. However speaking from someone who recently made the leap to the automated lifestyle, having the option to sit or stand while you work is a huge underestimation. Progressive Desk is at your front door wondering why you have not made the transition yet.Back pain is not something any of us get out of bed for. In fact, it is something that may prevent us from doing so. Sedentary lifestyles have increasingly negative impacts on our health, and it is something that should be addressed.

Through Progressive Desk’s website, you can either choose from preselected standing desks or build your own to your liking.

Automated Spice Rack

If you have a spice rack that takes up more space on your kitchen counter than you would like, then this might be the perfect project for you. This is a great way to save space and impress your guests at a considerably low cost. All you need to purchase from us is an actuator, switch, and a power supply. You can refer to our blog for more details on building this project.

Automated Secret Bookcase Doors Project

This automatic secret bookcase doors project will allow you to make your ultimate secret room. By pulling a book back, two automatic doors will open, and you have access to your darkest secrets or a place to get some work done in peace.

You will most likely need some coding experience to complete this project as there may be some safety concerns to consider. You can refer to our blog to get you started.

Automated Liquor Cabinet

Whether you want to hide your mass liquor collection, or you want to show it off to your guests, you can make your own Automated Liquor Cabinet. Have it emerged from a cabinet like the Automated Spice Rack, or have it rotated down from the ceiling! If you want to make one that rotates down from the ceiling so that it is vertical when the liquor cabinet presents itself, then a hinged motion must be considered. You can find more information on mounting positioning in hinged motions in our blog How To Mount A Linear Actuator Efficiently 

The list of projects you can choose from to give your home that extra touch is as large as your creativity.
