The New Frontier in Cinema: An Immersive Home Theater

By Guest

A dark space, high definition crystal clear clarity, ear popping surround sound, and the smell of buttery popcorn. Going to the cinema holds a great appeal for many, but what with long lines, crowded malls, and exorbitant prices for tickets and concessions, that appeal can quickly wane. Luckily there’s a new frontier in cinema currently taking place which eradicates these issues. The home theater includes all of the immersive advantages of a traditional cinema but at your own convenience, control, and customization.

In fact, integrating a variety of devices, sensors and programming into an automation system can make your personal space into something you might want to share with everyone!

Ultimate Fan Cave Showdown for the Super Bowl -- YOU VOTE!

By Crystal Watts

We asked two of our dealers—one from Seattle and one from Denver—to give us their thoughts on an ultimate man cave proposal for the Super Bowl. What would they do to completely outfit a Seahawk or Bronco customer’s fan cave? We think they did a pretty good job. But YOU get to decide who will get the win.

Ultimate Broncos Fan Cave

By Guest

We’d start with an HC800 to power the Fan Cave and the rest of the house. We’d have a Control4 video switch powering the 16 video zones in the home, including 3 outdoor TVs since the Colorado weather is so much better than Seattle. A Control4 audio matrix switch would power the 24 audio zones so that the game can be on everywhere in the house.

Ultimate Seahawks Fan Cave

By Guest

My ideal "Fan Cave" would have a Control4 8x8 HDMI Matrix Switch to control the eight displays in the room. For control it would have a 7" portable touch screen remote, with a HC-800 doing the paddling. It would include an in-wall Control4 Keypad, with blue and bright green back-lit LED buttons—since blue and green is a much more desirable combination than blue and orange.

Super Bars for The Super Bowl!

By Crystal Watts

For football fans, the Super Bowl is obviously a huge deal -- and this year, February 3rd will be particularly important for fans of either the San Francisco 49ers or the Baltimore Ravens. I'm not a huge sports nut myself, however, I do enjoy a good party so the Super Bowl is always something I look forward to. My husband on the other hand, has been talking about it for weeks on end. Asking all the "important questions" like -- Do we go to a sports bar or will it be too crowded? How do we weigh our party invite options? Or do we just decide to do it at our place? If we do decide to host, what will we eat? How much beer will we need? Do we need to buy decorations? (Ok, the decorations question was mine. He'd never claim that one.)
