With an automated lighting system, you’ll never have to enter a dark house again! Turn lights on from your car as you pull into your driveway or from the other side of the world! Easily create lighting scenes that capture different moods with a single button press; light up your home for a party, have just the outside lights on at night, or create pathways of light to certain rooms. As part of an automation system, your lighting can automatically respond to certain times of the day such as sunrise or sunset, making sure that lights are exactly how you want them every day of the year! Custom Theater and Audio installs a variety of lighting control systems from Lutron and Control4, many of which can be easily installed in existing homes!
Nothing complements automated lighting like shading. Having the shades automatically raise or lower creates the perfect mood, whether you want natural light during the day or privacy at night. Beyond impacting your heating and cooling costs, sunlight can fade and damage carpeting, artwork and other items in your home. Automated window treatments are the perfect way to protect against this, letting in natural lighting to brighten and warm the room when you want, and blocking it out when you don’t! Shades can raise and lower with a button press, or reposition themselves automatically at specific times of day; fully open for maximum light in the morning, lower to half-way to block out some heat in the afternoon, and fully closed for privacy in the evening! Custom Theater and Audio proudly installs Lutron’s Sivoia shading which comes in a variety of styles and fabrics that will complement any home and décor! New Honeycomb shades can run for 3-years on a single set of batteries and can be easily retrofitted into any home!
Do you have a coffee table that is littered with a variety of remotes controls, always fumbling trying to figure out how to get the TV turned on? A table cluttered full of remotes is not only ugly, it’s confusing! And if your system is too complicated for everyone in your home to use, then it won’t be enjoyable. Your home will likely have many “sub-systems”; things like lights, HVAC, security and audio/video systems. These may be from different brands from different manufacturers and have control systems of their own. But what ties them all together and makes for a harmonious, easy-to-use experience is a single control system capable of handling everything. Whether you just want to replace the 5 remote controls it takes to operate your TV system or you want to control every aspect of your home from your iPad from anywhere in the world, Custom Theater and Audio offers just the system for you! We proudly feature Control4, URC (Universal Remote Control) and Logitech-Harmony systems to ensure that there is a perfect controller for every job and budget!
You hear a strange noise in the middle of the night. Your wife and children are at home alone. You are leaving your house unoccupied for the winter. A security system is about peace of mind, knowing that your home is being monitored and looked-after even when you can’t be there. Beyond protecting doors and windows and your interior with motion detectors, adding a video camera surveillance system and Digital Video Recorder (DVR) allows you to check in on your house remotely via the Internet and see exactly what is happening. Custom Theater and Audio installs smart security systems from a variety of top manufacturers that can integrate with Control4 automation systems for complete control. We also sell smart door locks that can email you to let you know when someone comes or leaves your home.
It’s too hot! It’s too cold! An automated HVAC system makes sure your house is always just right. Not only can you easily schedule different heat and cool settings for various times of the day – wake up to a warm/cool house, allow for different settings when you leave for work, and drop the settings for when you go to bed – a smart HVAC system can integrate with your automation system. This can help you to not only be green, but actually save real green in energy savings. Custom Theater and Audio can program your system so pressing an “Entertain” button can start music, adjust the lighting and raise/lower the temperature to the perfect setting. Another huge benefit of automated HVAC systems is being able to check in on your home remotely or receive an email if the temperature exceeds a preset limit. If you house 95 degrees in summer or 45 degrees in winter? Your home can contact you immediately so you can correct a small problem before it becomes a big one! Knowing your home’s status is a perfect feature for vacation/second homes.
Let’s face it, vacuuming is not fun. And if you have allergies, it can be downright uncomfortable. Central vacuum systems offer the greatest amount of suction power to get your cleaning chores done; all while exhausting 100% of the air outside of the home. No push vacuum can compare to the performance of a central vacuum system in either air quality or ease of use. Central vacuums eliminate emitting dust into the air and that, “I just vacuumed” smell. They also offer the widest array of attachments for cracks and crevices, stairways, hardwood floors, and furniture; a pet lovers dream! Some models even disappear/retract automatically into the wall! Spilled Cheerios in the kitchen? No problem; just sweep them into the vacuum dust pan! Have a craft room or workbench? Just push your trimmings into the vacuum drawer! Once you live with a central vacuum, you will never want to have a house again without one!
