        Home Audio 101: Three Things to Consider

        The options for home audio can be overwhelming: amps, speakers, sources ­— how does a consumer make sense of it all? What are the right systems for music and movies? What factors play into these decisions — such as sources, room types, and so on? And how can a homeowner be assured that they’re specifying quality gear?

        Lighting: Balance is Everything

        As a home automation professional, you know (almost) everything there is to know about luminaire, Kelvin, light output, dimming, lighting control, up lighters, chandeliers, and everything in between. So, it’s easy to forget that the best form of light is daylight. Well unless you recently had the experience I had while on vacation!

        Setting the home office up for success

        Working from home will remain an option in many organizations. In fact, some of the world’s largest companies plan to keep remote work as a long-term business strategy, causing homeowners to have to evaluate the best setup for their home office space. Architects and developers are designing homes with dedicated home office spaces and more flexible designs to accommodate working and learning from home. This is true for both new builds, as well as retrofits where a home office space had not been necessary before.

        New Styles and Fabrics for Crestron's Motorized Blinds

        As Crestron expands its line of motorized shading options, there’s been a lot of attention paid to the materials that go into these products — including the fabrics and styles. There’s been a tremendous amount of input from the design/build community to create top-notch solutions — solutions that really need to be experienced firsthand by your clients.

        Three Major Advantages of Crestron Shading

        In the early 2000s, the custom AV industry experienced a resurgence in motorized shading. Up to that point, shading was noisy and inefficient. Today, however, customers expect silent, intelligent, low voltage operation in a top tier shading system, which are now classified as “automated shading” or “intelligent natural light control.”

        Energy Comes to Crestron Home

        The home energy space is growing rapidly as more homeowners become conscious of the environmental and economic impacts of energy use and conservation. In addition, people are looking for more security with their energy, as many have experienced some degree of power loss in their homes due to natural disasters, rolling blackouts, and other circumstances out of their control.

        Building an esports facility at Central Connecticut State University

        We’re excited to have opened the esports space and are happy that current and prospective students see it as a place for them, a place for instruction, fun, and competition. As I reflect on our journey from inception to reality, I think the process is just as important as the physical room and space. For our university, this was an interdisciplinary project which brought together academics, varsity competition, and recreational gaming.
