Is Your Texas Home Ready for the Holidays?
Smart Home Automation Makes Entertaining Easy
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and that means tons of good food, relaxation, and bonding with family and friends. But here’s an important question: is your home ready for entertaining? Before all of your family members start heading over to The Woodlands for the holiday festivities, consider doing some smart home automation upgrades. Continue reading to learn about some popular possibilities for smart home control.
Revamp Your Media Room
Where you’re a fan of the Macy’s Day Parade or prefer to cheer on your favorite NFL team, there’s no denying that the television plays a big role in many families’ Thanksgiving Day celebrations. If you’re tired of squinting to try to make out the floats on your TV, it’s time to upgrade to the new kid in town: the 4K Ultra HD television. With four times as many pixels as a regular 1080p TV, the difference in image quality is like night and day.
Of course, the technology may not be the only thing worth revamping in your media room. If interior design is important to you, now is the perfect opportunity to give the room a fresh new look. Consider adding a motorized TV lift that keeps your television out of sight when not in use. You can also hide all of your gaming consoles, Blu-ray players, speakers, and other devices using an A/V distribution. With A/V distribution, we’re able to set up your media system so that all the different devices can be placed out of sight in a closet or cabinet while still giving you full access to all of their capabilities. That way, you get all the benefits of technology in the room without any of the clutter.
Play Holiday Tunes Throughout Your Home
Nothing gets people into the holiday spirit quite like music. However, there’s a big difference in music quality between some regular speakers on the living room bookcase and a Hi-Fi audio system with hidden speakers optimized for the acoustics in every room. Instead of having to adjust the music separately on different stereo systems in the living room, patio area, bedrooms, and dining room, imagine having them all connected to a single system that you can control straight from your smartphone or tablet. If you want to lower the volume right before the Thanksgiving meal is served, all you have to do is tap your phone.
Simplify Party Prep
On Thanksgiving, getting that delicious meal ready should be all you have to worry about. Instead of walking from room to room to unlock the front door, open the curtains, set mood lighting, and pick out music, imagine being able to accomplish that all at once with the push of a single button. You can take the time you would have spent rushing around preparing your home and instead spend it relaxing with family. That’s the main goal of a smart home automation system: to make things as simple, convenient, and comfortable for you as possible.
