Some people are diehard do-it-yourselfers. There's nothing they can't do with a few things from Amazon or a trip to Home Depot. Install a whole-home audio system? No problem. Start those holes in the drywall now.
You may not be a DIYer of this magnitude, but you may do some things yourself. You may not need a professional to mount your new 65-inch OLED TV. You might not need help figuring out the programming for an intelligent remote control.
On the other hand, some audio-visual installation projects can get complicated. And while you could do them given enough time, patience, and newly acquired YouTube skills, you have better things to do. Some AV projects are better left to professionals, and you'll enjoy the finished product in your Las Vegas, NV home without the headaches and sweating. Here are three projects which we think are better left to people that do them every day.
Home theaters can range from the relatively simple to the extravagant. The chances are that if you want a home theater with a wall-to-wall 150-inch screen, special lighting effects, and a 20-speaker sound system, you will be hiring some help. But even small theaters can be complicated. Home theaters rely on a good bit of unseen infrastructure – cables, power conditioning, speaker wire to the right places, automation to make it work cohesively, lighting, and more. If you enjoy pulling wires through walls, connecting and calibrating audio and video equipment, and figuring out where acoustic panels should go, this might be a project for you. If all that gives you a headache, you’re better off calling us!
You might want to have music and audio all over your house, perfectly synchronized wherever you roam and easily accessible. We understand that a simple Sonos wireless speaker system might fit that bill for some people, but some spaces require more for even high-quality sound. And when you want to take it outside, sound has more challenges to sound right. Whole-home audio systems involve distributing the sound, installing multiple speakers in the correct placement, and having an easy-to-use control system. Again, if you enjoy pulling significant amounts of wire, programming control systems, and digging up your landscape for burying outdoor subwoofers, this may be a job for you. But most people end up calling us!
You can do a surprising amount of DIY home automation with products that work with Google, Amazon, and Apple’s smart home systems. You can call up audio and video entertainment, manage lighting, security cameras, smart locks, and more. Why call a professional for these functions? For a simple smart home setup, perhaps you don't. But if you want a truly integrated smart home with many devices and features where the whole is more than the sum of the parts, you may want something more robust. A Control4 smart home system gives you seamless control over all your functions and makes them work together like a well-trained orchestra. If you enjoy technology, some programming, and figuring out why things may not work consistently, you might enjoy setting up your smart home yourself. If you'd prefer to sit back and enjoy what your smart home can do for you, call us and we're happy to do it for you!
