I’ll help design the perfect audio distribution system for you, whether that means accessing Spotify via a simple interface and playing it all throughout the house, or eliminating the need to run through to the living room every time you want to change the track – all while having a minimal impact on the aesthetics of your home.
It’s fun to have all the latest gadgets, but what’s not so fun is all the visual clutter that comes with them. With a video distribution system, you can have it all, without the mess: all your gadgets can be streamlined and kept in one place, while still allowing you to operate and enjoy them from any room. Whatever your video distribution needs – TV, DVD, Blu-Ray, cable, security cameras… – I can help bring it all together to be operated from one remote location.
2-channel audio will always have a soft spot in my heart, despite the endless stream of new formats and advances in digital technology (there will always be a turntable in my system). As an industry veteran, I take seriously the responsibility I have to the industry and my clients to design 2-channel systems that continuously push the boundaries of sonic performance and provide a bridge between traditional methods and emerging technologies.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all the audio output throughout your properties or offices could be controlled from a central location, using a simple and intuitive device? Well, now it can. And it gets better: whether the speakers are housed in the ceiling, walls, bookshelves or outdoors, they can be designed to integrate seamlessly with their surroundings, giving you maximum audio impact with
minimum visual impact. I’ll come in to assess your needs, whether that’s background or foreground music, or for addressing the public – or both – and then I’ll design the system that’s right for your business.
With all of the fantastic technology on offer, you might be worried about your home turning into a jungle of wires and boxes – but that isn’t the case. I will make your technology invisible, with decorative veneers, surface repairs, paint and plaster replication, expert color matching, professional equipment racks that are recessed in remote locations, and more. When I’m done, the only indication
that you’ve upgraded your home will be the magical way you can control everything at the touch of a button.
Environmental Management and hvac
With an energy management system, I can help you attain maximum comfort with minimum energy consumption. Simple controls allow you to keep track of energy consumption and control heating and air conditioning (and even the temperature of your hot tub), right from your smartphone or tablet. Automated climate control can be set to function differently throughout the day, according to your personal needs.
I can custom-design a shade control system that fits in seamlessly with your day-to-day life and activities. Not only can I set up controls that lower your blinds at the touch of a button, I can also set up intricate systems that will do things like lower your projector, dim the lights and drop your blackout blinds – all with one touch. I can help you set up controls to change multiple aspects of your environment depending on your mood. In short, I’m here to make your life simpler by building custom solutions that work in harmony with your lifestyle.
I can design a lighting control system that will illuminate pathways when the fire alarm goes off, or your entire house in the case of a security breach, among many other things. I’ll work with you to figure out your biggest concerns, and then I’ll provide you with the solutions to alleviate them – helping you sleep easier and making your life simpler.
Network and communications
If you’re sick of cycling through five different remote controls before you find the one that turns the TV on, or if you just can’t bear to look at all the remotes cluttering your coffee table any more, a home control system is what you need: one device to control everything. I’ll consult with you to find out where your biggest frustrations lie, and then I’ll help you simplify and streamline things
in the way that makes the most sense for you and your needs.
Wi-fi is a fantastic invention, undoubtedly. However, that doesn’t mean it’s as effective as its wired counterpart, Ethernet. If you’ve noticed your games consoles and computers operating unusuallyslowly, it’s probably down to your wireless connection. I can install an out-of-the-way wired infrastructure, meaning you’ll always have optimal connectivity, as well as an added layer of security and, where you want it, managed bandwidth distribution.
I’m not talking just any old telephone here – I’m talking telephones that can double as an intercom, route calls to your office, send and receive pages, allow roaming integration with your cellphone, give each family member a dedicated mailbox, and offer elaborate auto-attendant features. Phew. That’s PBX and IP-based phone systems for you.
For extra peace of mind, you may be interested in remote monitoring. For an annual fee, all your new systems and controls can be monitored remotely – either via our server or the cloud – making it possible to have a malfunction fixed over the internet, and even for potential issues to be apprehended prematurely so you won’t be inconvenienced.
The options are astounding when it comes to entry systems: I can integrate the system with your phone, add video capability with recording facilities (so you can capture the license plate of everyone who stops by), program your music to pause when someone rings the doorbell, and install biometrics that allow you to unlock your door with your thumbprint. I can even set it up so your thumbprint activates custom presets, such as particular lighting and music arrangements throughout different rooms.
Audio and Video Intercom
If you want to easily communicate with somebody on the other side of the house, an intercom is the perfect solution. I can install a completely new system, or upgrade your old one from audio to video without rewiring the whole thing.
I can install cameras throughout your home that will give you complete peace of mind, whether you’re at home or away – no matter where you are, you’ll be able to keep an eye on your home. Modern security cameras can record to the cloud and be equipped with simple interactive controls to give you remote pan, zoom and tilt functionality.
THX Certified Theatre
THX is the premium standard in cinema design and technology, and cinemas must meet strict criteria in order to be certified. Everything from room acoustics, room construction and equipment selection are subject to the highest standards – standards which far exceed the performance of a commercial theater.
No longer do you have to rub shoulders with other cinema-goers on a Friday night. Instead, you can enjoy all the wonders of the big screen in the comfort of your own home. I’ll create a theater that skilfully utilizes the space in your home by conducting analyses to determine the appropriate acoustic treatment, considering the ideal cinematic architecture for your space, and making sure things like the seat arrangements, theatrical lighting and motorized curtains are all just as you’d like them. And, of course, whisper-quiet ventilation goes without saying.
If a dedicated home theater room isn’t your style, but you don’t want to miss out on the joys of an incredible entertainment system, you need a media room. Media rooms can be transformed from regular living spaces – living rooms, family rooms, bedrooms – into entertaining spaces at the touch of a button. Screens and speakers can be concealed in the ceiling, behind artwork and in specially-designed furniture, and only revealed when you want them.
