Automating Your Shades When It’s ‘Too Darn Hot’

When Cole Porter wrote “It’s Too Darn Hot” for Kiss Me Kate, he wasn’t thinking about the long Texas evenings for those with westerly facing rooms. Even those of us with windows that do not face south can feel the effects of the summer sun on our rooms and air-conditioning bills. Rather than just crank the A/C another few degrees, let’s consider how a well-automated home can combine multiple approaches to cooling down and keeping the air flowing. Read more

Dedicated Luxury Home Cinema Design & Construction Guide – Part 1

A dedicated cinema may seem like an inefficient use of space to some and they would rather make it into a multi-purpose media room; but to others it’s the crown jewel of their home. A place suited to make events that create lasting memories, from a genuine movie night in with the family, to watching the big game on a big screen with the best of friends. It’s a place that truly changes the experience, a place that allows you to suspend reality for those two hours and immerse yourself in the film the way the director intended. However, without proper planning, design, and execution, a cinema room could be disastrous to a home, disrupting the audio throughout the structure. Today we’ll go over general points and tips in creating a great cinema room. There is a lot that goes into a great cinema, so this article will be split into two parts. Read more

Why Lighting Design? Part 3.

In the third and final installment of our blog series covering the effects of lighting on our health and quality of life we will be covering the changing world of lighting technology.

IMAGINE fixed what every other company said they fixed and didn't. They were prompt and explained everything they were going to do. We had a Control4 system installed by another company and it never worked as promised. IMAGINE got everything up and running smoothly: Security, Internet, Televisions. Our media closet, which was a tangle of equipment and wires, was cleaned up and organized so we could actually know what piece of equipment did what! I highly recommend this group for any and all AV needs. Costs were not astronomical either!
