How to Boost Your Home Theater Experience with Smart Control
Make It Easy to Create the Perfect Environment for Watching Movies
During your home theater installation, the focus may be on your display and speakers, but it's your smart control solution that brings it all together. Everyone has at least a basic concept of this with universal remotes that control TV, cable, audio, and more. You can take it a step further with a system that also lets you manage lights, climate, and shades to create the ultimate movie-watching experience in your Tustin, CA home.
Get Rid of the Pile of Remotes
The biggest benefit of including a smart control solution in your home theater installation is consolidating all your different remotes. There’s no need to use a different device to manage your speakers, projector, or streaming services. Instead, get control just the way you want it. If you like the feel of a remote, upgrade to one that puts everything in the same place. Otherwise, you can use a touchpad, tablet or smartphone.
Switch Quickly Between Sources
You can also combine all your sources, so you don’t have to open a new app or pick up a new remote to change services. Control your Blu-ray player, media library, satellite TV or streaming services from one easy-to-use interface. We recommend going with a system from Control4. In the video above, you can see how easy it is to find what you want to watch and get it to play on your home theater screen.
Create the Perfect Atmosphere
An ideal movie environment isn’t just about the images on the screen and the audio coming through your speakers. The greatest thing about having a private theater is that you can get the lighting and climate at your preferred settings. With smart control, you can adjust lights and temperatures from the same device you use to lower the volume or change the channel.
Pull Up Your Favorite Settings Quickly
Once you've found the ideal lighting and climate for your theater, you can save it in your system to pull up at a later time. You can also save your favorite channels, so it's easy to access your entertainment at a moment's notice. For example, a "Netflix" scene dims the lights, closes the shades, adjusts the temperature, and turns on your screen to your Netflix menu.
The best audio and video quality can go to waste if your home theater isn’t easy to use. Contact Surreal Systems to find out how a custom solution lets you get more out of your installation.
