5 Ways an Integrated Home Control System Makes for Smarter Security
Do you have a home security system? Chances are you do. Standard home security systems have alarms, sensors on doors and windows for intrusion detection, and smoke detectors that trigger a call to a security monitoring service. These systems provide some peace of mind so you can rest easy in your Atlanta home.
But homes are evolving, and security solutions are too. A smart home security installation from the experts at Georgia Home Theater can dramatically expand your security features. Smart home security can do much more than set off an alarm when something is amiss. With today’s smart devices, you can make your home much more secure and keep an eye on your home at any time, no matter where you are.
Let’s explore a few benefits of integrating home security with a home automation system, like that of our partner Control4.
McIntosh’s First Hybrid Integrated Amplifier Will Boost Your Home Audio System
Vacuum tube vs. solid state amplification is one of the biggest debates for music enthusiasts, and people usually fall into one of the two camps. But pitting these amplification technologies against each other is unnecessarily restrictive, and McIntosh has realized the potential of a system that merges the two with the McIntosh MA252, the company’s first hybrid integrated amplifier.
This high-demand piece of technology has been back ordered for a long time, but we at Georgia Home Theater have the item in stock at both of our Atlanta-area showrooms. In our opinion, it's shaping up to be an iconic piece of gear within the McIntosh suite of luxury high-end audio products.
Read on to learn more about why a McIntosh MA252 is the perfect addition to the home audio system in your Alpharetta-area house.
A Side-By-Side Breakdown of Motorized Vs. Manual Shades
Window shades are an essential part of your Buckhead-area home’s functionality and design. They help regulate temperature, protect against UV rays, reduce glare on TVs, and prevent the outside world from looking into your house when you want private time.
Manual shades can be a hassle to operate, and if they’re not lowered at the right time, they don’t offer any protection. Those problems are eliminated with motorized shades, which operate automatically depending on the settings you program into your home control system.
Read on to discover how motorized and manual shades compare in three different areas: ease of use, customization, and convenience.
Explore The Possibilities of Adding a Custom Home Theater
Georgia Home Theater has been building custom home theaters and media rooms in the Alpharetta and Atlanta areas since our inception in 1989. Home theaters are in our name for a reason; it’s the bread and butter of our business.
But if you think a custom theater or media room is only for the very well-heeled, you might be in for a pleasant surprise. Today’s equipment and technology can accommodate a wide range of media use and room types. Sure, you can still get the full home cinema experience with the movie décor, lounge chairs, soundproofing, and the best equipment, but you don’t need to go that route if that doesn’t fit your lifestyle.
Let’s explore some of the latest trends in custom theaters and media rooms.
