What Does Your Home Audio Video System Include?

Home AV, at its most basic, offers a centralized solution for all your audio and video needs. Each of your sources, including streaming services, Blu-ray players, digital music libraries, cable boxes, and more are readily available through one solution. AV systems are composed of all the different entertainment devices in your home. Relying on a professional means you only deal with cutting-edge technology when it comes to speakers, displays, AV receivers, and the source components mentioned above. Do you already have devices you love? They can be incorporated easily, so you still have access to everything from one place.

Where Should You Install Your Home Audio Video?

Home audio video solutions are usually associated with media rooms or private theaters, but they can span your entire property. Expand the reach of your favorite music, movies and more with distributed audio and video in any area you may enjoy listening to  music or watching TV. It's easy to extend your home AV to your bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and even your outdoor spaces! Craft a personalized AV solution so you're not left without your entertainment when you want it or with systems that you won’t use in the long run.

How Should You Control Your System?

Easily manage all the components in your whole home entertainment system in a way that makes the most sense to you. Often, many people like to stick with traditional handheld remotes for any entertainment needs. For those installations, you can still upgrade to universal remotes which offer easy access to all your content, favorites, and even lighting and climate control.

However, there are still some fun upgrades you can make to your controls! Access your system through Control4's brand new OS 3 interface on your smartphone or a dedicated touchpad. Simplify your technology even further with voice command capabilities via Amazon Alexa or Google Home.
