Commercial A/V and Electronic Systems

Restaurants, offices, nightclubs, Houses of Worship…any commercial environment can benefit from the efficiencies of automation and the performance gains of modern electronics.  We design & install distributed audio & video systems, sound reinforcement, stage lighting, LED digital signage, video capture and production systems, video surveillance and more.

Anything electronic is in our sights because today’s electronics can all work together to improve costs and performance.

Residential Systems & Home Theater

If you have more than 3 remote controls on your coffee table,  regain control with Control4 home automation.

Orchestrate audio, video, lighting, environment, security, window shades, door locks and almost anything else in your home through a single remote control or iPad interface.

Home automation is not a bunch of devices, each with its own app-its a total integration of all the electronics in your home through a single control system. Make you home serve you, the way it should be!

Data Networks & Cabling

An inadequate or slow network is an insidious hidden expense, eating away at profit and productivity.   Networks naturally become underpowered over time, as faster computers and more users tax the limits of existing technology.  Have your network speed tested, keep what works and replace what doesn’t to bring your operation into the fast lane.

We install and certify CAT5e & CAT6, Coax and other cabling infrastructure.  Have confidence that your network cabling is up to the challenge.

How Can You Use Control4 Automation?

A bunch of products, each with its own app is not automation.  Neither is having a universal remote control that constantly requires the “Help” button to be pressed to re-synchronize the system.

True automation is when all of the different products and brands are reliably controlled with one single system, and nothing succeeds like Control4.

Here are some use case examples of just a few of the many ways that Control4 automation can make a difference in your environment.

Commercial Automation

Efficiency and Simplicity

Restaurants, offices, clinics, factories, service facilities—automation helps to reduce costs, ensure that varied technical gear works in harmony, and delivers control and reporting where it is needed. Here is an example of gaining control of a professional environment, making staff more efficient.

Home Automation

Making your Home serve you!

There is virtually no limit to the extent to which you can gain control over a variety of unrelated systems. It might start with consolidating a coffee table full of remote controls into a single, reliable operating experience, to delivering audio and video throughout the whole home. Or it can orchestrate the function of a variety of different objects and systems throughout the home to execute a series of actions that make home life more enjoyable and secure.

The joy of serving should not be blunted by the frustration of systems that are difficult to operate. Houses of worship often have many different users that need to operate the equipment without relying on a busy ministry staff. How do you prevent technology from interfering instead of simplifying?

Here is an example of a medium sized church that used Control4 to consolidate a variety of commercial products so that volunteers would be able to make large changes with a single button press.

Hanging By A Prayer...

There is a surprising amount of gear suspended overhead in commercial environments, especially churches. Speakers, projectors, lights, displays and other gear compete for space on the ceiling. But hanging anything from a ceiling over people is a tricky business due to variables like static load, shock load, support capacity, hardware, safety backups among others. Recently we replaced a poorly designed set of home made speakers from the ceiling of a church and noticed the following deficiencies. First, in the top-right corner of the photo, a simple piece of steel is held to beams using inadequate wood screws. While this might be sufficient for the weight if the speaker was hanging directly below, but the chain is on an angle, which encourages the screws to pull out. Next, the hardware store grade chain links are connected to steel cable without the proper shields to keep from wearing through the cable. The cable is secured with bolt on clamps. Speakers are meant to vibrate, and bolts are not immune to loosening from vibration—bad combination. But the weak link is that the steel cable runs through holes drilled in the speaker cabinets, so the whole extent of the weight is supported by about an inch of plywood. Meanwhile, the projector is suspended with a heavy iron pipe that is screwed into the ceiling beam using small wood screws through a flange that is not approved for overhead suspension since it has no locking method to prevent the pipe from unthreading from the flange. Of course, there are no backup safety restraints in case the rigging fails. Liability insurance is not a solution! If you are not sure about the gear in your environment, you really need to call us!
