Life is just better with a little more control.
Envision a house that remembers to lock itself every night at 10 pm. Shades that close as the sun rises or sets. A home theater setup that takes care of lights, sound and picture with one touch. An audio system that plays your favorite playlist on one floor, different music on another and audio from a television program throughout a third level.
Now imagine a house where the temperature is controlled and energy use is reduced by integrating thermostats, lighting and shading systems together. Door stations are combined to include cameras, intercoms and doorbells to increase security. Simply put, Integration is the process of bringing automated systems together to allow for centralized control. Devices can be monitored over the internet remotely or controlled using computers, remotes, phones and ipads as well as other android devices.
If addressed in the planning stages, provisions for a strong network, wiring for sound and video as well as construction details can be made to accommodate AV equipment, lighting, shading and comprehensive control systems. Pockets can be framed into the ceiling to conceal projection screens and window coverings. Projector lifts can be motorized and recessed so that they are hidden when not in use.

At GiCor it’s Automatic!
Home theater systems are one of the fastest growing product segments in recent history. Second only to the home office, much attention is now being paid by both spec. and custom home builders to address this demand. In designing a quality home theater, special attention must be given to the design and shape of the room, finishes and furnishings, acoustical properties and of course the electronic equipment, all which are paramount in order to mimic the performance and experience of a commercial theater.
With more and more smart electronics playing a central role in our everyday lives, you’d think they’d be making life easier. But with so many different technology formats—Blu-ray, Bluetooth, MP3, WMV, HD, 3D, not to mention Ipads and whatever is coming-next—things are getting more cluttered and complicated, not more convenient. Wouldn’t life be better if everything worked together? Utilizing Control 4 you can monitor and control the components in your theater using remotes, touch panels, phones and ipads as well as other android devices.
If addressed in the planning stages, provisions for basic wiring and construction details can be made to accommodate AV equipment, shading and control systems. Pockets can be framed into the ceiling to conceal projection screens and window coverings. Projector lifts can be motorized and recessed so that they are hidden when not in use.
