Automated Home Theatre and Entertainment

Home entertainment just got better and cooler. If you have ever got together at your place to watch football matches or enjoy movies, you must know how irritating it is to grope around the dark for the remote control, or when the phone rings, and you have to pause the movie. Oh wait, turn on the lights so you don’t trip over yourself.

This is a thing of the past. One button is all it takes now to automate your home entertainment. With the click of a button, curtains slide, the lights dim, the LCD display and the amp turn on. To bring that zing to home entertainment and get envious looks from friends, make use of the newest home technology and make your home a smart home!

It depends on your budget and needs on how lavish and detailed you want the automated home entertainment system to be. To add sizzle to your home entertainment, you will want to consider the following ways in which you can create that wow effect for your home theater:

· Lighting
· Drapes and curtains
· Fully automated home theatre

Lighting
With a lighting system at your smart home, you can have different settings for lights depending on whether you want to watch movies, sports or a television show. If you want to pause a movie and go answer the door bell, lights will switch on to illuminate your way to the door. When the movie ends, lights will come back on slowly. This type of lighting is controlled by touch-pads or touch screens that have only a few buttons.

Drapes and curtains
In a tech home, motorized curtains and drapes can be used for both the windows and screens which will slide to screen out the sunlight. This is especially good if your home theatre screen is prone to getting washed out by sun.
