3 Benefits of Hiring a Professional Audio/Video Installer

Ditch DIY and Trust a Local Expert

3 Benefits of Hiring a Professional Audio/Video Installer

Maybe you are adept enough to hang a flat-screen TV on the wall, or set up some speakers in your living room for surround sound, but did you know there are a lot of perks to working with a local professional to install your AV (other than not having to do the work yourself)? Not only do we have exclusive technologies and luxury brands that you can’t find in a local store, but we also have decades of experience creating the very best media rooms and home theaters – suited for your exact needs and desires. From organizing all your content, simplifying controls, and streaming and controlling media to or from any location, The Integrated Home is your local audio video installer in Charlotte, NC who knows exactly how to create the best home entertainment setup.

1. Boost the Quality of Your AV

Here is a common occurrence: you buy a brand new flat-screen TV, you bring it home and discover the sound is never loud enough. The picture looks really nice, but you have to turn up the volume to the maximum level just to hear the movie. The truth is that the thinner TVs become, the worse the speakers perform. The average flat-screen TV has two speakers that are just barely larger than the size of a quarter. With speakers that size, you can't expect to hear anything at a proper level, not to mention you won’t feel immersed in the action like you want.

While adding a surround sound system is a great option, if you don't have the budget or space for a full 5.1.2 or 7.1.2 system, a high-quality soundbar will do the trick in the meantime. Add a soundbar by a quality manufacturer like Sonos and you can turn up the volume as loud as you like and will notice the difference in clarity. Give us a call and we can mount this beautiful soundbar in your living room. When you’re ready, we can add on to your system at any time – like upgrading your TV to 4K or installing a full Dolby Atmos surround sound system.

2. Easily Control Content in Every Room

One of the great features of having a smart AV system is easily switching content from room to room. For example, you’ll be able to start a movie in the living room, pause it, and then pick up exactly where you left off upstairs. Play a different channel in every room of your home – inside or outside – or the same program on all the screens. Control4 has various audio and high definition video distribution switches and controllers to scale to the size of your house. So it doesn’t matter if you have 15 TVs or three, we have the right equipment to meet your needs.

Another added benefit is simplifying your controls. You won’t have to worry about remembering which remote control to use; we have universal remotes that can control everything from lights and shades to your TV and speakers. Keep a tablet in a central location so anyone in the house can move it from place to place, or install a touch screen in the wall so it’s always easily accessible. We’ll help you choose a control device that makes sense and suits your preferences.

Easy to use with one hand even in the dark, Control4’s remotes have an incredibly fast response time and bright, high-resolution displays. You’ll be able to set the thermostat, turn on House of Cards, and lower the shades with the same intuitive device.

3. Reduce AV Clutter

When you work with a local professional, you have the advantage of reducing clutter and organizing all of your equipment. Our team will place cable boxes, streaming players, Blu-ray players and other media components in a closet or storage area so that it’s out of sight and won’t affect your home’s aesthetics. We have professional equipment racks, which are efficient and neatly organized so your wires are never a mess. Instead of investing in multiple Blu-ray players for all the rooms with TVs, you can distribute one or more throughout your home and then easily switch sources. For example, you can play the same movie on all the screens, or play the baseball game on one, a Netflix movie on a second, and the local news on another. It’s up to you to choose which sources you like, and it’s up to us to make it simple and effective.
