Whole Home Media
Whole Home Music, Movie & Media: Centralized Audio & Video allows for gear to be hidden, yet shared and enjoyed where you want it. Now you can reduce the amount furniture needed, fewer cable and satellite boxes to pay for and still have the best quality music and movies distributed throughout your home.
Wired Music: Distributed audio offers potentially the highest performance, best reliability, full range speakers, low profile to stealth speakers, more sources, and no extra furniture or counter space requirements. This multi-source multi-zone solution allows for speakers to be tastefully positioned in-wall and in-ceiling and listen to what you want independently or in party mode including the big game.
Wireless Music: Very popular products like Sonos bring music to the masses. 50+ Free and paid music services make this product appealing. We have options to hide Sonos attached to TVs in the wall or on a counter with tone cases. Other options in category include 24-bit performance options like Heos, Blusound & state-of-the-art DTS Play-Fi speakers from Paradigm, Definitive Technology & Others.
Hybrid Music: This is currently the most popular solution in luxury households and brings forth the best of both worlds. You get the performance, reliability, aesthetics and space savings of a wired system (or retro-wired during remodeling) and still add the Sonos as a music source and have a couple portable players. We can even add locally powered systems like a Media Center (via an audio matrix switch) or add a wireless amp to a closet and have wired speakers tucked away in-ceiling. This solution is smart.
Distributed Video: Centralized Video consolidates your gear in one hidden location while switching sources to 4 or more TVs. It is an attractive alternative to wire cutting, whereby it can reduce the number of paid set top boxes for your home and still cover independent viewing to family members in other rooms. It is very cool and it reduces waste, but it does not offer a short-term ROI unless you can significantly deduct unneeded furniture and cabinets in related rooms. In addition to maintaining some Cable or Satellite boxes, you might add media boxes like Apple TV, Chrome Ultra or Roku 4, along with a Recording Device like a Tivo Bolt, a Sony UHD Bluray Player, a 4K media server like Kaleidescape and maybe an off-air antenna with true 1080P HD. Netflix & Hulu and such allow for this kind of flexibility.
Wired & Wireless Infrastructure: A new home or major renovation offers an opportunity to wire for the long term and immediate future. Structured Wiring provides home runs out to Multimedia Taps (cable, satellite or distributed video), Ethernet Taps (Internet & data) and Phone Taps. Other items wired at this juncture would include WAP locations (wireless access points), Control Runs (Keypad, Touchscreen & Ipad/Launchport), Satellite Prewires, Shade Prewires, & Cell Booster Prewires (Design Required)
Wi-Fi Networks: The other back bone to a smart home is the Network and it’s wi-fi coverage. With so many smart devices streaming content in homes it has become critical that your home network keep pace. An Enterprise Network & World Class WAPs can provide the security, reliability & thru put desired. Roqos is the first-ever wi-fi router service that provides parental controls and cybersecurity protection to your home. Enterprise level solutions like Pakedge & Access Networks/Ruckus provide complete managed solutions for medium to large homes with worry free security & wi-fi. Eero is a wired or wireless solution for smaller to medium sized homes needing to expand wi-fi.
