Luxury Entertainment

There’s more to a home theater than just a nice HD screen and surround sound speakers. Automation allows you to select your show, dim the lights, and even adjust the thermostat to a comfortable degree by hitting one button using your mobile device or universal remote. Control4 offers 4K solutions too, so you can stream high-quality content to your home. Their universal remote displays an LED touch screen so you can add your favorite channels to the screen and customize your settings. Whether you want a more traditional dedicated home theater or prefer a multipurpose media room, we can install all the technology you need to make the room look stylish and still operate perfectly. We even have commercial-grade theater seats so you can recline in a leather sofa or lounge on a soft chair. The only thing your system can’t do is pop a bag of popcorn for you.

Convenient Controls for Everyday Life

We know managing your household can be stressful, especially if you have kids, take care of aging parents, or entertain friends on a regular basis. That’s where customized controls come in. With our system, you can create and name “scenes” that start and stop tasks simultaneously. For example, create a “Good Morning” scene to make waking up easier. Hit one button on your in-wall keypad or mobile device and the shades will rise, the lights will turn on in the bathroom, the TV will bring up the morning news, and your multi-room sound system will play your favorite song. Whether you are simply leaving the house for work every day, going on vacation, or letting in a dog sitter while you’re away – each scene can be programmed differently to help you manage your daily schedule.

We hope you enjoyed this introduction to Control4 smart home automation. Even if you can’t add everything you like upfront, we can install systems in segments over time. Control4 is a scalable system that can add on new systems at any time.  If you are interested in our custom installations, click below!

    There’s nothing like walking through the door and pressing a single button (or even speaking a word) to set mood lighting, air-cons and music instantly. It’s not just convenient, it’s cool to have a smart home. Home Automation means you no longer have to perform mundane, repetitive tasks and can concentrate on relaxing and enjoying your home.
