Smart Home and Surround Sound Installation
This project in Rosemary Beach, FL utilized many of our preferred technologies. It is ideal for showcasing how audio video equipment can be hidden to minimize it’s impact on the decor of the home.
Audio Video Details
Invisible speakers from Stealth Technologies were used throughout the house. These in-wall speakers are installed during the drywall phase of the project to ensure they blend seamlessly with the rest of the wall. They are then painted to become completely invisible.
Artwork was used to hide the TV in the living room home theater system. When not in use it is completely hidden behind a painting. A Sonos wireless Sound Bar mounted below the TV provides high quality audio and takes up very little space. Sources include Apple TV, HD Cable, and online music sources such as Pandora and Rhapsody.
This same setup is utilized throughout the house allowing each TV access to music, HD cable, and movies from sources such as Netflix and Hulu.
Home Automation Details
Control4 home automation products were used throughout this installation. Audio video, lighting control, automated shades, and the climate control system are all seamlessly integrated into touch screen controls.
Lighting keypads were used throughout the house to cut down on the amount of wall clutter. All the lights in each room can be turned on or off using one button press. These same keypads also control automated shades and blinds allowing the homeowner quick and efficient control over lighting levels and privacy.
This lighting system also allows the entire home to be turned on or off with the press of a single button.
All of the climate zones of the house can monitored and set from any of the touch screens or smart phone devices. This allows the homeowners to turn the AC on or off from inside or outside of the house. This is ideal in a vacation home as you can make sure the house is cooled before you or your guests arrive. It also allows you to turn the system off remotely in case this wasn’t done before leaving.
