This modern new home in Boulder features multiple zones of sonos audio, video distribution, lighting and shading control and surveillance system. All of these systems are available via the ProControl app on the iPad which is held securely and charged by the Launchport magnetic on-wall docking station. The hand held remote is a second interface for simple tactile control of the video and other systems in the living room.
All of the equipment is housed in a neat, organized central rack in the laundry room. The rack can be pulled out and rotated for service or tucked back into the cabinet during normal operation. The high performance network and wifi system can be monitored and upgraded remotely via the cloud.
The room features a 55" HDTV, 5.1 channel surround sound, electric fireplace and led lighting. We were able to retro fit this room and maintain the clean layout by running wiring through the floor and walls keeping it all hidden. A universal remote easily operates the cable, roku, and surround sound.
We installed this 65" Samsung 4K UHDTV and webcam in the conference room of a Boulder business to facilitate video conferencing.
Our cabinet maker built the custom cabinet to our specifications to house all of the gear.
The motorized lift from Nexus 21 brings all the equipment up quickly and quietly when it's time to chat.
The cabinet retains its utility having roughly 8" of storage depth with adjustable shelving behind the fully functional doors.
The entire system including the mini desktop computer that runs the web interface is concealed when not in use.
This home features Lutron lighting control, HAI security and HVAC, distributed audio and video and centralized equipment. We cleaned up miles of wiring, reorganized and reprogrammed the entire system after several years of other companies failed attempts to get the system working. We created 3 iPad interfaces with custom programming that run the entire home via the RTI control system. The iPads have Launchport magnetic wall mounts with inductive charging and there's one on each floor.
The master bedroom features two TV's: one for the sitting area, and one that drops out of the ceiling with a motorized lift.
The home has 14 TVs and a projection theater that can access any of the satellite receivers, blu-ray player, security cameras, and audio sources located in the basement equipment racks. The intuitive RTI control system provides feedback to the user letting them know which sources are in use elsewhere in the home and which sources are available.
We recently completed this av installation in a new build for Morningstar Homes. The home features Lutron RadioRa2 lighting control, SONOS whole-home audio with Totem Acoustic in-ceiling speakers, and structured wiring for high-speed network and cable systems with upgraded wifi access points.
The family room has a 60" Samsung 4K UHDTV and SONOS 5.1 channel surround system utilizing their PLAYBAR, SUB, and a CONNECT:AMP connected to a pair of Totem Acoustic in-ceiling speakers. Control of the av systems and lighting control is accomplished via an RTI T2X universal controller and iOS apps.
All of the equipment is hidden out of site in a rack that can pull out and rotate for ease of access and service. Sources include Xfinity X3 DVR client, Blu-ray Disc, and Apple TV. SONOS media players were an ideal choice for this home because they use digital amplifiers which run cooler, use less energy, and are more efficient than traditional analog amplifiers.
We installed this 5.1 channel surround sound system using wall mounted Mites from Totem Acoustic. The system was setup with 14/4 speaker wire for Bi-wiring to maximize fidelity from this high performance system. All the wiring was fished through the mechanical room below the living room for clean looks. The source equipment is an OPPO BDP-103D, Behringer 15 channel graphic EQ, Marantz AV7701 surround reciever, Outlaw audio model 5000 5 channel amp, and Tributaries interconnects. The display is a Panasonic 58" plasma on articulating dual arm mount.
In the family room we added a 60" Samsung 4K ultra HDTV, and SONOS Playbar with wireless sub and in-ceiling surround speakers. Shutze Studio built a custom cabinet to hide the TiVo, Apple TV, and CONNECT:AMPs running the other zones of audio throughout the house.
The master bedroom features a plasma over the fireplace and another PLAYBAR, TiVo, and Apple TV remotely located and controlled via IR repeater.
The master suite had a mess of wiring and unsuited equipment.
We cleaned up the audio and video wiring for the master suite and reduced the equipment needed with more SONOS audio products.
We installed 2 zones of SONOS home audio in this north Boulder home updating their sound system. We added a 5 channel wireless surround sound system to the living room with the SONOS Playbar and a pair of Play:1's for rear speakers. Pictured is a stereo pair of Play:3's for the sunroom. The zones can be grouped together through the intuitive user interface on iOS and android devices. We removed a substantial mess of old wiring and obsolete equipment to the homeowners delight.
The family room features a Sony 65" 4K Ultra HDTV with 5.1ch surround, Lutron motorized roller shades and lighting control. All the equipment is stored out of sight and controlled easily by an RTI T2X universal remote and iOS devices.
In collaboration with Mosaic Architects and Morningstar Homes in Boulder we updated the home with SONOS whole home audio, structured wiring, multiple wall mounted flat screens, Lutron lighting control, and more. Every system in the home is brand new and optimized for quality, design, and function.
This historic home in Boulder features 2 complete surround sound systems, whole house audio, and Lutron lighting control. This surround system was updated with all new equipment featuring a Sharp 70" smart TV, THX rated speakers and powered subwoofer from Atlantic Technology, Onkyo receiver, Sony blu-ray, Apple TV, and RTI T2X. All the equipment is hidden out if sight in the closet leaving maximum floor space for the new custom leather seating.
