Beyond AV: Automating Your Home Theater Installation
The Tech You’ll Need to Take Your Entertainment to the Next Level When you dream about a home theater installation in your Denver, CO property, you probably know exactly what kind of video display and surround sound system you want. After all, isn’t AV the most important aspect of an entertainment space? The short answer is yes, but the long answer is a bit more interesting. In this blog, we’ll show you some other aspects of smart home technology you can integrate to make your entertainment experience even more unforgettable. Read on for more.
Nobody likes to watch their movies in a bright room. With one-touch lighting control, you can quickly dim the lights or turn them off completely so you can focus on the TV without glaring distractions. Of course, your home theater doesn’t exist in a vacuum, so there are often times when you’ll need to raise the lights to fix a drink or make way for a family member. In those cases, you can count on individual zone control – raise the lights in one section of the room to minimize distraction.
Smart shading is essential for any room with ambient light – the uncontrollable light that seeps in through windows and doorways. Motorized shades offer an easy solution to block sunlight in rooms with a lot of windows, or to add privacy to open-concept spaces. Simply tap a button on your smartphone or tablet and watch as the shades drop. Waiting on friends to arrive? You can still minimize glare without completely obstructing your view of the outside by integrating double rollers with sunshades. Sunshades protect your home from the harmful and annoying aspects of sunlight, like UV rays, without blocking the light entirely. You can add blackout curtains as well, to drop as soon as everyone has arrived.
There’s nothing more annoying that getting up to adjust the temperature in the middle of your movie. Whether the wife is getting too cold, the husband is too hot or the kids just can’t seem to get comfortable, an automated heating, ventilation and cooling (HVAC) system is just what you need. A simple swipe on your control device will adjust the temperature – and you won’t even have to leave your seat!
Smart System Integration
Automation is all about convenience – the convenience of watching your movies and TV shows with minimal effort. That’s why it’s a great idea to integrate your technology, from the lights and shades to the HVAC and AV, for one-touch controls over everything at once. When it’s time to start a movie, simply tap a pre-selected scene button on your smartphone or tablet and watch as the lights dim, the shades drop, the thermostat adjusts and the AV system turns on. All you’ll have to do is select the content you want to enjoy. Are you ready to turn your home theater installation into the ultimate entertainment destination?
