INTEGRATION AUDIO VIDEO CINEMA
W H AT W E D O
A key part of making the technology available in the modern home useable is integration. Our control systems allow the home owner to operate all of the home始s systems from a simple and intuitive user interface. We will discuss your needs to ensure that the level of control is tailored to your requirements.
Custom Sight & Sound has a far greater understanding of Audio than virtually any other Custom Installation company. We are active not only in Multiroom Audio, providing music in many locations around a property, but also in High End Audio, providing breathtaking audio performance in key locations. Audio performance involves a need for a much greater understanding than the pure functionality of the equipment and requires knowledge of the way in which all parts of the system interact with each other and the room in which music is to be reproduced. We can provide video in the home ranging from the humble stand-alone television through to large multiroom installations with sources located both centrally and locally. We can design and install the RF aerial and Satellite IF signal distribution systems alongside a video distribution system which is capable of handling the rapidly increasing range of digital sources which are available.
Alongside the distributed Audio/Video systems many clients ask us to provide dedicated Home Cinema rooms; from modest occasional use systems to true theatre systems, we will enable you to get the best experience from the content produced by the film studios of the world. We can provide a complete turn-key solution in this space if required.
LIGHTING WINDOWS DATA & TELEPHONY ACCESS
Lighting is a key part of the feel of any interior space. Scene-set lighting allows the user to instantly change the look and feel of a space by calling up preset Lighting Scenes from a Keypad or Touchscreen, rather than having to adjust many standard dimmers to obtain the required effect. We not only supply lighting control, but also supply light fittings including bespoke fittings if required and are able to create the lighting design for the building.
In large spaces automating blinds and curtains makes for far greater ease of use. Custom Sight & Sound will work closely with your Interior Designer to provide the right solution for your home.
Telephone and Data networks are an essential part of any building today. Custom Sight & Sound will design and install a network which suits your needs now and with the capacity to adapt to your future requirements.
Security is increasingly important in the modern world. We can design and install CCTV and entry systems incorporating high resolution day and night vision cameras, digital recording and automated analysis to spot threats and alert the home owner. Camera images can also be streamed securely over the Internet if required, for remote viewing. Our door entry systems allow the home owner to view a visitor and request their identity before opening the door for greater peace of mind.
