Home Theatre Installations
Take your family movie nights to the next level with your own home theatre. A home theatre installation can take many different forms, from a professionally mounted TV & soundbar in the living room that hides all the wires, to a full multichannel surround sound system with an automated projector screen including in-wall, and in-ceiling speakers. To help you decide what type of system will be right for you, we’ve listed some of our most common questions below.
Both Televisions and Projectors have their pros and cons when used in a home theatre system. There are several questions that will help determine which is the right choice for your space. What is the size of the room, and how many people will be watching? How much ambient light is in the space? A dedicated theatre room that can be easily darkened will favor a projector, whereas a living room with lots of ambient light, and wanting to use the system in the daytime will lean more towards a TV.
Smart home automation can give you peace of mind that your home is under control, even when you are away. Set your lighting, music, temperature and video to greet you with the perfect welcome. With one button your security system arms, lights go on, temperature adjusts and all the music and TVs automatically turn on. Keep an eye on things—from anywhere. Whether equipment or lights are left on, or unusual activity is detected, you’ll always be in the know.
A distributed audio system allows you to listen to sound from a central source throughout the house, or listen to different audio sources in different rooms throughout the house. This type of installation typically consists of installing speakers on the walls, ceiling, or underneath flooring; then routing signals through an amplifier to control volume levels so that each room has specific requirements met according to its desired source.
A multi-channel amplifier will reproduce the same audio source distributed at the same volume over multiple speakers. For example, your living room surround sound system. When you turn up the volume knob, the volume is increased on each speaker equally.
A multi-zone system will give you independent control over groups of speakers in different locations. For example, you may want to have the volume of music in your living room be set at a different level than in your backyard. This would require a multi-zone audio system.
There are several ways to control your distributed video system, and we work with you to determine the best way for your specific use. For residential clients, many people find it easiest to control through the smartphone app, or single unified remote control. We can also install wall switches to make changing video sources a breeze. No more fumbling with multiple remotes and trying to match the right inputs and outputs! Another benefit of distributed video is it allows for all the equipment to be stored in a closet, or somewhere out of sight. This will keep your home decor clean and free from the extra clutter of electronics.

Ensuring your home has a strong and robust network is the single most important thing that we do, as your network is the lifeblood that controls everything. The network is what controls your distributed video or distributed audio systems, security systems, lighting automation, and impacts the ability of everyone in the house to enjoy connectivity.
To determine how many access points you will need, first consider the size, layout, and construction of your house. Does your home have in-floor heating, and therefore concrete floors? Does it utilize metal studs or wood studs? What is the current distance from the router to the furthest point in your home? All these factors will help determine how many WiFi access points you will have to install.
Keep your home, and the important things in it, safe and secure at all times. Check your door locks, and cameras from across the street or across the globe. Receive alerts when someone authorized enters or exits your house. Set lights to automatically turn on or off based on dawn & dusk, or whatever schedule you choose. Smart home security solutions put peace of mind at your fingertips so you can trust that your loved ones are safe and sound.
Ultimately this depends on the size of your property. Common areas for security cameras include: Main entrances, secondary entrances and exits, garage, and outdoor areas.
