Great Audio Quality Everywhere

Great Audio Quality Everywhere

Builders and designers in the Dallas area, you know your Westlake clients to be a discerning lot.  They want it all – the most up-to-date technology in their new home or remodel – but they want it discreetly integrated and not to overwhelm them.

When your clients think about audio, they want great music and sound for background listening, movie nights, game rooms, and outdoor relaxation and entertaining.  In the past, there used to be a tradeoff between aesthetics and audio quality – you could have one or the other, but not both. 

Not anymore.  You can have high-end audio that blends perfectly with a home’s style, indoors and out.  Read on to learn more.

It’s likely your Westlake clients are telling you they want their music everywhere in their home.  They don’t want speakers to be visible – maybe even have it be really difficult to tell where the great music emanates from.  In a media or theater room, they are looking for that cinema-quality sound, but don’t want to draw attention to where it’s coming from.

Your Various Rooms Require Various Music Qualities

Your Various Rooms Require Various Music Qualities

Listening to your music is always an experience.  And it deserves top-quality audio, no matter where you are in your house.  With a whole home audio system, you can listen to your songs in any corner of your Dallas, TX and have them follow you as you go about your day.  You can also  set up varying levels of audio quality in different areas of your home.  We can customize and set up the perfect system to create the ideal environment in every room!

A Level for Each Room

It’s simple: some rooms need a higher quality of audio than others do.  You can put the levels into 3 groups – A, B, and C sound qualities, with A being the highest.

You could be getting laundry done or working in the garage, and want to listen to some tunes while you’re there.  But that doesn’t mean those rooms need ultra-high-end speakers in them.

When you’re sitting in a media room or dedicated listening space, you don’t just want the standard system.  You need a superb, top-notch auditory experience!

So it’s first things first.  To achieve this setup, you must initially figure out which level – A, B, or C – is meant for each room in your home.  Then you can move on to distinct audio zones and pick the appropriate equipment.

Upgrade Your Home Network for an Enhanced Entertainment Experience

Upgrade Your Home Network for an Enhanced Entertainment Experience

There’s nothing quite like the experience of watching a classic Hollywood movie or listening to your favorite music playlist in the comfort of your own home. But can your home network support the plethora of devices and streaming activities that your family uses on a daily basis including laptops, game consoles, Blu-ray players, smartphones, tablets, televisions, video streaming and game downloads? The typical home network is slow and inconsistent. Isn’t it time you upgraded? Read on to learn more about inviting the future of tech into your home.

Support 4K Streaming

Televisions are getting bigger, and prices are coming down—in particular, 4K ultra high-definition TVs. But what good is a fancy, new 4K TV if your network doesn’t have the bandwidth to support your family’s streaming habits? Greater download speeds will transform the way you watch TV and open up a world of crisp color that is sure to make your friends jealous. Slow download speeds result in buffering issues and lag time, which no doubt you have experienced.  

SEE ALSO: Are You Making these Home Networking Mistakes?

An additional piece of information to be aware of is that internet service providers (ISP) often put a cap on the total amount of data that a customer can use each month. These caps present a problem when it comes to streaming live video. If your ISP limits your data usage to 50 or 200 GB per month, you could quickly reach your limit when live streaming.

3 Reasons to Choose Savant for Smart Home Automation

3 Reasons to Choose Savant for Smart Home Automation

When you’re getting started with smart home automation, one of the biggest decisions you’ll need to make is which system you’ll use to manage everything. There are a lot of great smart system providers out there, but the one we recommend most to our Dallas, Texas clients is Savant. If you’re interested in learning what makes Savant such a great choice for smart homes, then read on.

1. Super User-Friendly Design

The most advanced smart technology in the world won’t do you much good if it’s difficult to use. Instead of a clunky, complex interface that’s hard to navigate, Savant keeps things simple. Each screen is completely intuitive, so you know exactly where to go to manage every part of your home. You can access the system from your phone, tablet, desktop computer, or dedicated remote—whatever you’re most comfortable with. The touchscreen design helps you access each part of the system quickly, so turning on your favorite music playlist or checking the security system is as simple as pushing a button.

2. Powerful Enough for All Your Needs

One of the best things about smart home automation is how it can be customized to fit your lifestyle. With Savant, you’re not stuck with a cookie-cutter solution. Instead, the system can be designed with all sorts of cool features that you might not expect. Savant is compatible with all kinds of different technologies and systems. So whatever high-end audio, surveillance cameras, or existing smart devices you have, they can all be managed by Savant with ease.

3. Reliable for the Long Haul

At the end of the day, the most important thing is that your smart home works the way you want it right when you want it. Technology can be fickle, and the more systems you try to control at once, the higher the chance that something will go wrong. We love Savant because it’s high-quality, well-designed technology. You won’t have to deal with the system breaking every few months or glitchy software that doesn’t perform the way you’d expect. Instead, it just works. When you’re investing in a full home automation solution, having a reliable system is absolutely essential. That’s why we use Savant.
