Welcome to the world of the perfectly automated home. A home that keeps you and your family entertained, comfortable and secure. A place where your every whim is executed at the touch of a button. Here’s an example of life in your smart home: Your day begins. Your favorite music plays in the background, the thermostat in the house adjusts to 72 degrees, and the shades rise letting in the sun, all automatically. From your iPhone, iPad or Android device, you turn on the entertainment system to check the weather while you enjoy breakfast. As you leave the house, you press the button marked “away”. The entertainment system goes to sleep, the house lighting adjusts and the security system wakes to keep a watchful eye while you are gone. The proper conditions are ready for you when you return home. One touch of the button on your phone activates landscape and interior lighting, and sets the proper temperature. Once inside, music follows you throughout your home. A quick glance at your smartphone shows that all environmental and security settings are exactly as you desire.
All About Sound & Video’s industry-leading intrusion systems offer a full range of detection and reporting capabilities, including burglar alarms, fire, carbon monoxide, high/low temperatures, and enhanced safety with integrated door locks. Any incident notifications are shared via keypad alerts, phone calls, emails and text messages. Our intrusion systems link to lighting control to flash specific lights if an event is detected.
Prevent incidents – don’t wait until it’s too late. Whether you are at home or away, we go beyond simple cameras. We integrate smart cameras and program them to detect unwanted activity. When an intruder or other unauthorized movement occurs, the cameras notify the alarm system which contacts you and the authorities. We utilize the best surveillance equipment available to maximize picture quality and reliability. Get added peace of mind knowing that your home has extra ‘eyes’ and the intelligence to act on your behalf.
Speed and bandwidth matter. Streaming Netflix, kids on YouTube, Facetime video calls… we expect to see what we want, when we want. With your household carrying 10, 20 or more devices AND your security cameras, smart lights and automation system… carrying the ‘load’ requires an enterprise-grade network with enough ‘headroom’ so you are ready for today and the future. Larger home? Coverage is critical, indoors and outside. Leave it to our team of networks experts to get the right result.
We integrate climate, shade and lighting control into a unified, programmed and intelligent system capable of reducing your carbon footprint, while enhancing comfort, privacy and safety. Preset scenes run during the day and night based on your usage, weather, season, and occupancy requirements. You can easily modify settings to adjust temperature, humidity, or radiant heat for any room or zone. Modify the fireplace, gas lamps, or adjust the motorized shades and dim lights together with one button.
Sit in your cinema recliner, touch a button, and let the show begin. Select a movie or concert from your library. Our theaters can be concealed and tailored to any interior decor. Entertaining friends or family? Your private theater can easily convert to a gaming system that makes for the most engaging video game experience imaginable. Our private theaters take into account your listening and viewing environment, available light, and the shape, size and acoustic nature of the room. Our background in professional video systems ensures you of the highest performance. All About Sound & Video is also your source for theater interiors and build-outs. From theater seating and risers, to stages, drapes and lighting, we work with your designers to construct the themed theater of your dreams. No one knows video and sound like All About Sound & Video.
One of the best-loved conveniences for your home is music on-demand that plays wherever you are. Music makes a house into a home. That’s what we do – we bring the pleasure of music at the touch of a button on your mobile device for all rooms, in and out, with the latest gear from the world’s best vendors. Our advanced audio systems deliver sound that fits a range of environments. You can have concealed sound for any room, at high levels of quality. Speakers can be hidden in walls and ceilings, indoors or out. That means no clutter, no special furniture. The system is housed in a closet – each room merely needs a pair of visible or concealed speakers. Artist and album information can be displayed on a TV or your phone. Yes!
Whether you’re home or away, you can monitor and communicate with anyone at your doors or gates. Greet guests and allow them to enter even if you are running late, check in on when your kids arrive, observe and communicate with a delivery person who approaches your front door. Not only do our access entry systems provide the doorbell chime on the house phone system or mobile devices, you can view, talk and unlock the door remotely. Access control is just one part of our overall security platform and it fully integrates with the intrusion and camera systems for total smart home protection.
