Technology is advancing to the point that even modest households are able to afford tools and gadgets that once seemed like the playthings of the rich and the famous. We may not have the robot butler yet, but most of us have homes that are looking more and more like the Jetsons’ every year.
Home theater automation in Phoenix is one of the most exciting areas of technology. Everyone has a TV, and most people have numerous accessories such as speakers, video game systems, and more. Automating these can enhance the experience you have when you are watching TV, listening to music, or playing games, and it can make management of these systems more convenient.
Here are some of the trends in home theater automation you should consider for your home:
Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime are just some of the many streaming services out there for television shows and movies. There are even more for music, video gaming, and more. In order for these to be convenient, you need to be able to hit a button and turn them on, just as you would change the channel on cable.
Home automation can integrate streaming devices such as the Roku or Amazon Fire, as well as streaming accounts so that you can easily access these at any time without having to go through a complicated series of steps. A professional can perform the custom home entertainment installation in Phoenix to put all this together quickly and easily.
Built-In Social Media
People love their smart phones because they can do everything on them, including watch a show on Netflix and then jump over to Facebook to share their thoughts. Smart TVs are starting to catch on by adding built-in social media applications.
Unfortunately, not everyone is technologically savvy enough to know how to set these things up or to navigate them. A home entertainment professional can get everything set up for you and ensure that you can use your smart TV as seamlessly as your smart phone.
Remember when picture-in-picture was all the rage and seemed like the wave of the future? Well, why limit yourself to watching a small screen in the corner of another screen when you can watch two (or more) full-sized screens right next to each other? You can keep the news ticker or game on while you’re watching a movie, and you don’t have to squint to figure out what’s happening.
A custom home entertainment installation can include connecting multiple televisions so that you can access all your streaming media and other accessories to get the content you want when you want it.
How nice is it to walk into your house and say, “Alexa, play ____ song?” You probably wonder how you ever lived your life without this ability. And if you haven’t added voice control to your home automation yet, you should. You’ll be able to do everything from turn your TV on to change the channel to adjust the volume – all without getting up from your couch.
Your home automation professional can set this feature up for you and help you learn how to get the most out of it, such as by doing voice searches for content.
When you think of something being automated, you likely think of being able to control it from one remote or one operating system. That’s what home automation is moving toward. Intuitive automation makes it as easy as possible for you to control all the devices in your home.
However, setting up this automation can be a bit tricky, and that’s why you need to hire a professional for your custom home entertainment installation. The professionals can get everything set up quickly and can give you a quick tutorial so that you know how to use all the features with ease.
