Encore Unlocks the Keys to “Smart” Home Automation

Hint: The secret is at your fingertips…

Home Automation has come a long way in a very short time. Remember when the height of control was a timer for your porch lights? If you didn’t remember to change the timer, your lights would come on at 5:30 pm in July. Hardly smart.

Now? Encore Custom Audio Video can design a system that gives you (responsive) control over your lights, your security, your HVAC, your media, your shades, and even the temperature of your pool or spa (if you happen to be so fortunate). And the best part about having all this control is that you don’t have to learn some new computer program or language in order to take advantage of it. Encore can connect everything through your iPhone, iPad, tablet or otherwise favorite iOS.

An extraordinary home cinema/multipurpose space

The primary objective for this client family was to turn an underutilized builder-grade basement into an extraordinary home cinema/multipurpose space while maintaining an “open” feel.  The clients did not want a dedicated room just for watching movies, as they have a large extended family. Instead, they envisioned an open space that utilized part of the basement for movie watching plus much, much more.  

How Would Encore Custom Audio/Video Design YOUR Home Theater?

With an attention to the details that ensure an amazing private cinema experience

In the last blog, we focused on Dolby Atmos and our new 4,500 sq. ft., state-of-the-art showroom at our headquarters in Sterling. Part of the reason we’re so enthusiastic about both is because Dolby Atmos was designed to create a layer of sound from above and the overhead sound extends the height of a system's soundstage, which allows for some very special effects that we enjoy demonstrating in our new showroom. 

Why did Encore Custom AV Choose Dolby Atmos for Our New Showroom?

Because you never get a 2nd chance to make a spectacular 1st impression

When you call yourself a professional, you have to bring “it,” whatever “it” might be. In the audio video/home theater industry, “it” is the knowledge of what products work to create the most authentic cinema experience at home for clients just like you.

For the last several years, Encore Custom AV has been designing and integrating homes in Northern Virginia and the Metro DC areas (and throughout the mid-Atlantic region) and earned numerous awards, including Integrator of the Year for 2014. So when we made the commitment to build a brand new, state-of-the-art showroom at our headquarters in Sterling, we knew we had no other choice but to bring “it.”
