What is home automation?

Generally home automation refers to the technology integrated into a home which makes living in your home more convenient, more efficient and enhances your lifestyle. This is best achieved by using a realiable home control system.

What can be achieved with a home control system?

The options are virtually unlimited. Below are some examples of the main systems you may wish to control:

How can smart home automation integrate this into my home?

Any or all of the features above can be installed in your home and integrated so that you have a single easy to use touch screen panel in each room. This allows you to alter any aspect of the environment and entertainment throughout your entire home.

How can a home automation system help me save money?

Saving energy with your lighting saves you money and prolongs the life of your light bulbs. Enhance audio visual can help you reduce your energy costs by using low voltage lighting, and automatic lighting controls.

Low voltage halogen bulbs, which require a small amount of energy to power but produce a very bright light means the brightness of these bulbs can be reduced, by running them at a less than maximum brightness, with no loss of light to the naked eye whilst achieving considerable energy savings.

Timers can be set to turn off lights at particular times or after a certain period of time. Light sensors for daylight harvesting can turn lights on or off to preset levels depending on the amount of natural light in the room. Motion sensors can be deployed to turn lights off when no movement has been detected in a room for a set period of time. Many other electrical devices can also be programmed to turn off after a certain period of inactivity.

What are the security advantages of home lighting control?

Lighting control enables your entire home, garden and driveway to light up with a single press of a button.

Home Theatre FAQ

What is Home Theatre

Home Theater refers to a set up of audio and video equipment in your home that attempts to duplicate the movie theater experience. You can have a home theater in just about any room of the house, a small apartment, office, dorm, or even outside. The choice is yours.

What is Custom Home Theater?

For the best Home Theatre experience using a specially designed cinema screen and projector is the best approach. With a high end video projector, high end DVD player, separate amplifiers for each channel controlled by a master preamp or controller, inwall speakers, and a subwoofer it is possible to recreate the movie theatre experience and even improve on it.

Should I have a projector or TV?

This really depends on the room you intend to use for your Home Theatre. With projectors it is necessary to have a room that can be sufficiently dimmed so the picture on screen is clear. If you intend to use a room which is used for more than one purpose it may be a better option to go for a large screen LCD or Plasma TV. We are able to advise on your best options in all cases.

What size of screen should I have?

The size of the television or projector screen you opt for depends on the size of the room you will be watching it in and also how close you will be sitting to the screen. We are able to advise on your best options in all cases.

What is Surround Sound?

Surround sound is a term applied to several types of processes that enable the listener to experience sound coming from all directions.

What are AV Receivers?

An AV receiver is the heart of any Home Theatre system. It is an all in one box pre-amplifier, tuner and power amplifier. AV receivers have the ability to decode various formats used for audio/video. Common formats include Dolby Digital EX, Dolby Pro Logic IIx, DTS Digital Surround, DTS-ES, and DTS Neo:6. An AV Receiver provides an easy and cost effective way of centralising your Home Theater system.

What are pre-amplifiers?

A pre-amplifier is a dedicated piece of equipment used to control and improve the sound input from various sources. Pre-amplifiers are used in Home Theatre installations to process audio sources such as televisions or DVD players in order to create the best possible sound output before the sound is amplified.

What are amplifiers?

An audio amplifier can provide amplification for one speaker or for many speakers to create surround sound. The maximum number of speakers depends on the number of channels the amplifier can handle. Amplifiers vary in quality of sound output and are one of the most critical parts of your Home Theatre installation. One of the most important components of your amplifier is the power supply. An insufficient or poor quality power supply can produce less dynamic, less detailed sound and reproduce interference noise through your speakers.

How many speakers should I have for my Home Theatre?

For use within a Home Theatre we can provide any type of surround sound set up, 5.1, 7.1 or even 9.1. Ceiling mounted speakers can also be used to minimise the obtrusiveness of the installation. In the notation the first figure refers to the number of speakers excluding the subwoofer and the .1 referes to the subwoofer. Surround sound always requires the use of a subwoofer.

What is a Subwoofer?

A subwoofer is the speaker that recreates most of the bass sounds in a surround sound system.

What kinds of speakers do you supply?

We have a large range of speakers in a wide range of specifications and finishes to suit all budgets. Please contact us for more details.
