Transform the Soundscape of your Home with Whole House Audio

There are few more pleasant ways to wake up in the morning than with some quiet music playing low as you get out of bed. But with whole house audio throughout your Lake Norman, NC home, you’re morning bliss doesn’t have to end at your bedroom door. The music can follow you down the hallway, into the bathroom as you get ready for your day and into the kitchen as you prepare breakfast for your family. Creating a soundtrack to brighten up your life can make your home more enjoyable, keep the kids happy and provide a unique listening experience in every room of your house. Take a look at the ways whole house audio can enhance your smart home.

Music That Follows you Throughout the House

Imagine this: you’ve planned a dinner for family and friends. As your guests arrive, they’re greeted by the sound of music seemingly coming from the walls of the foyer. As they sit down for dinner, they are immersed in a surround soundscape that is fully audible but not so loud that they have to strain to hear each other. Afterward, the party moves to the dedicated listening room, where they are taken aback by the elegance of your Monitor Audio or Meridian speakers – pieces designed so well they are really more like furniture than perfect sounding pieces of audio equipment. From here the gathering can go on well into the night.

All of this is possible with whole house audio. And by integrating your sound gear with the rest of your smart home controls, you can control more than just the sound. Set the scene with perfect lighting, draw the shades to enjoy your surroundings and adjust the climate as you pick the perfect melody for the occasion with just the touch of a button on your remote, tablet or smartphone.

How to Easily Hide Your Audiovisual Technology

Interior design is an art, and therefore is highly personal. Everyone has different tastes when it comes to style, and the same goes for technology. Some people love showing it off while others would like to hide it. If you are into hiding your whole house audio and video products, then you have come to the right place.

The Integrated Home specializes in blending technology with your Charlotte home décor. In this blog edition, we’ll give you some ideas and show you some fun possibilities when it comes to hidden technology.

Hide TVs in Any Space for Impressive Surprises

Séura is a master at creating TVs that magically appear in a variety of forms. Their Vanishing TV Mirror can be placed anywhere in the house, even in the shower. You can wake up in the morning, walk into your bathroom to get ready and watch the news in the mirror while you brush your teeth. Séura also has a line of outdoor TVs that are weatherproof and built to withstand nature’s elements.

If you find that a TV mirror isn’t your style, TVs can also be placed behind pieces of art or conceal them inside ceilings and walls. The Integrated Home uses motors to move screens in and out of spaces. With just the touch of a button, you can bring out the TV and get ready for an evening movie. Hidden technology is a great option if you want to add to a room, but don’t want the technology to stand out.

With our integration professionals, you can distribute different videos to every screen in the house and not disrupt your interior design in the process.

Access More Content in Your Home with a Whole House Audio/Video System

Access More Content in Your Home with a Whole House Audio/Video System

For years, gaining access to your favorite entertainment was quite a process. If you wanted to watch a movie or listen to a record, you had to take a trip to the local store and hope they had the one you wanted in stock. Today, however, things are different. Virtually infinite amounts of audio and video content is available to stream through your whole house at any given moment. You simply need a system in your Concord, North Carolina home that can access the content with high-quality picture and sound. In this blog, we highlight a couple of our favorite solutions for streaming entertainment with a whole house audio/video system.

Sonos Gives You Sonic Satisfaction
Our clients often ask us: why do you love Sonos? The answer is simple, we love it because it sounds and looks great in any room. And with their latest advancements, Sonos speakers sound even better than ever.
Sonos’ latest – the PLAY:5 – is a first for the company. The original PLAY:5 has been completely overhauled, making it the first time they’ve completely replaced an existing product. And one listen will tell you why it’s a great idea.
The new version sports six drivers, making it capable of a much wider range of frequencies – meaning the bass is deeper and the treble is higher. This gives the speakers a greater capacity to catch every detail of music streamed from iTunes, Spotify, Pandora or other services. 
Moreover, the second recently announced development could be a real game changer. Trueplay is a software that fine-tunes your Sonos speakers for incredible sound, no matter where they are placed. That means that whether you have a PLAY:1 in the bathroom, a couple of PLAY:3s on your bedroom shelves or an immersive PLAY:5 set up in your living room, they all reproduce the music in a way that’s true to the artist’s intentions. 
Stream Movies Throughout Your Home
Of course, streaming media isn’t just restricted to music. You can also stream your favorite movies to any room of the house with a media distribution system.
From a single, unobtrusive location – like an unused closet or basement nook – your entire digital library of movies can be distributed throughout your home. Using the Kaleidescape movie server, store your entire movie collection and access new ones at any time online. With Control4 mobile controls on a tablet or smartphone, you can then start a movie in your home theater, pause it, move to the bedroom and pick up exactly where you left off. 
The same goes for content streamed from Netflix, Vudu, Hulu, Amazon Prime or any other service. Simply choose what you want to watch, and enjoy it in any room without a lot of electronic equipment taking up space.
