Proudly Representing Crestron in Northern Virginia
The new home automation systems are sometimes called "Smart Home" systems or "Systems Integration." Whatever the title, they are all referring to intuitive control of your home's subsystems, including audio/video, lighting, security, CCTV, motorized shades & drapes, pool/spa and more. Besides a consistent system-to-system look and feel which makes controlling your home easier, combining these subsystems into a unified control also greatly eliminates wall clutter. Thermostats are hidden in closets or a mechanical room and backup security keypads and pool/spa controllers can likewise be hidden.

Encore is an authorized Crestron dealer and installer serving Northern Virginia, the DC Metro and surrounding areas. Our skilled engineers and technicians have Crestron certifications and are experts in installing and servicing Crestron home automation solutions, which means we can offer you Total Home Technology.
