A stunning home theater screen lowers from the ceiling. A lighting control system dims the lights, and the volume controls adjust themselves to your preset preferences. From your touchpad, you select a DVD that is stored on a central server and decide if you want your home video distribution system to port the movie to any other rooms beside your primary home movie theater.
If you prefer to listen to music, you access the distributed audio system, select the room or rooms you want to activate, and choose one or more CDs from your central server.
Cinematic experience is as easy as touching a “Movie” button on a touch panel. Suddenly, the entire system turns on in proper sequence, and curtains automatically open to reveal a high definition home theater screen.
A well-designed residential lighting control system and home automation system can prevent you from experiencing the impact of rising energy costs. Lighting controls can be programmed so that you can coordinate your fixtures with the weather outside. Additionally, landscape lights can be synched with the astronomical time clock and interior lights automatically light up when you are home or away.
These smart lighting options also allow you to automatically turn lights on and off when you enter or leave a room, and the automatic shade controls eliminate your need to remember to close the blinds to protect sunlight streaming in, causing hot pockets in the house and fading expensive fabrics, artwork, and collectibles.
