Home automation has brought with it incredible convenience and ease of living. All your technology and connected devices are now controlled via one elegant and intuitive user-interface. Would you like the lights dimmed in the living room, the shades lowered, and your latest Netflix series started?
Press the "Watch Netflix” button on your remote, designated touchscreen, or smartphone app. Is someone at the door? A live video pops up on the screen so you can see who’s there. Then, from the comfort of the couch, speak to your visitor through the two-way intercom, unlock the door, and invite them in.
Today’s technology has truly transformed how we live. However, one of the greatest impacts it’s had is in the world of entertainment. AV companies that integrate smart home automation with the latest audio-video devices are revolutionizing how we spend our free time.
Let’s look at a few popular entertainment options and how they’re transforming homes in Coeur d’Alene, ID.

There was a time when we controlled our many audio-video devices with individual remotes, a timely and frustrating affair. Then came universal remotes, which inhabited their own challenges. With an AV distribution system, all that changes.
Distributed audio-video systems let you hide all your AV gear in a storage or utility closet. From there, audio-video signals are distributed to your TVs and in-wall/in-ceiling speakers. That means all your cable or satellite boxes, media players, receivers, Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, turntables, CD players, music servers, and more are neatly housed in a closet, hidden from view. Now, you can enjoy high-fidelity music throughout your home or in one room and play the big game on one or every TV with one touch of a button.
This system also provides incredible entertainment to your outdoor areas, sending AV sources to today’s weatherproof 4K UHD HDR TVs and high-performance landscape speakers.
With today’s technology, a home theater can create a space where the sound and image are so lifelike and real that you suspend your disbelief and enter into another realm. It’s the go-to spot for the immersive cinematic experience, the big game, and the binge-worthy series. For many, it becomes the favorite room in their home.
The “automation” in smart home living means that your home prepares itself for you in advance and responds to your needs. You wake in the morning to shades slowly rising and your "It's a Great Day" playlist streaming through the bedroom. In the kitchen, the TV displays your favorite newscaster.
Before friends arrive for dinner, you press the "Entertainment" button. The landscape and indoor lights settle into preset hues. The gas fireplace ignites, and your “Friends” playlist streams through your home.
