WHY upfit a smart MDU?

WHY a smart MDU? As cities’ populations grow and the need for building upward grows, the trend toward multi-dwelling units (MDUs) has exploded. Not only are these MDUs in demand for the builder and buyer alike, but they’re increasingly more exclusive, high-tech and luxurious. The good news is: with technology from Control4, this level of modern luxury is affordable.

Our advice: Include smart home automation in the blueprints
The best way to incorporate smart home automation into your units is to include it in your plans from the beginning. Structured wiring, strategically-placed outlets and connectivity designed for the best internet connection, power capability and equipment placement increases the value of your units and allows for minimal interior design disruptions – ensuring your vision comes to life without having to worry about unsightly wires or bulky equipment getting in the way of the details. By wiring before the walls go up and considering features like built-in speakers, storage for entertainment features or a whole-home control center at the front door, design and convenience stay the center of attention.

Smart MDUs mean safety, connectivity, convenience and more
Buyers have placed convenience, connectivity and energy efficiency at the top of their must-have lists when it comes to shopping for their homes. By incorporating smart home technologies like climate control, automated shade and lighting control, they can improve their energy efficiencies, whether they’re at home or out-of-town.

Smart home automation also offers endless options that increase safety – from cameras at the lobby door to smart locks to timed settings for your shades and lights – that protect both the occupants and the building itself. Some systems can even alert residents and building staff about fire and water damage before they become a widespread or serious issue. Now, residents can know what’s happening in their homes, while it’s happening.

Make it easily customizable – SMART home technology in an MDU https://www.control4.com/dealer/soundvisionllc11-28117/mooresville-nc/
One thing is for sure – anyone buying a home wants to make it feel like home and there’s no better way to accomplish that than offering a smart home system that’s customizable to their needs. Custom climate control, security features and entertainment systems with personalized moods and functions make your buyers happy. Even better, consider implementing connectivity to the concierge desk and any entry points like doors, automated gates and garages to ensure your residents are only a touch away from communicating with property staff and their visitors. All of these features are even more attractive when residents are able to connect them to their personal cell phones and tablets.

By making your MDU’s smart, you can increase the value of your MDU, while also making it more attractive to buyers. Moreover, you’re more likely to retain your residents if you’re ahead of the trend, as there’s less for you to update later on.

Today’s Home Theater

Today’s home theater … The Ultimate Entertainment Experience!

Ultra HD, 4K…the quality of content these days is amazing!  So are the number of ways we have in accessing it! Is your home theater or media room up to the task? Is it able to make the most of the high definition audio and video available? With summer blockbusters available for streaming,  there’s no better time to add the home theater you’ve dreamed.  OR, maybe considering an upgrade to your existing theater so that you may enjoy the best digital entertainment experience.

Are you a movie lover, serious gamer or avid sports fan? A dedicated home theater makes an exceptional space for your home entertainment. Wiith technologies like Dolby Atmos and 4K, enjoying the content in a room specifically designed for performance audio and video can be spectacular!

So what’ll it be, Home Theater or Media Room?

Your home media room offers a great space for enjoying some family-time movie-watching and for hosting your friends on game day. It can boast a stunning 4K laser projector or a surreal OLED display along with Smart TV streaming.. A well-designed and outfitted media room can also take advantage of exceptional audio through a surround sound or Dolby Atmos system. However, one potential disadvantage is today’s open floor plans often place the media room adjacent to the kitchen. This is generally the busiest hub in the home. While this is great for engaging conversation, it is not ideal for either sound or picture quality.  The room is open to the back (uncontrolled sound) and likely flooded with natural light and hese features may be distracting.

Get lost in an immersive experience

A dedicated home theater includes technologies specifically designed to perform in a controlled space. Acoustic issues have been addressed for optimal sound. Noise-control has been considered and addressed in adjoining spaces. Custom seating is ideally positioned for viewing and comfort instead of working around window placement.  Speaker systems, like Martin Logan’s iconic Masterpiece Series, can be positioned and calibrated in the defined space as designed.  Inan a thoughtfully designed environment, it won’t take long to understand why they have earned the tagline “the art of Truth in Sound!”

This isolated room rarely features windows, so images are true and free from glare. If there are any windows, they will have been treated with black-out shades to maintain the perfect environment. So, enjoy an afternoon of football or binge-watch your favorite streamed series free from interruption.

Another advantage is that, in a purpose-built space, décor doesn’t depend on the rest of the house. You can also add a custom fiber-optic constellation mural on the ceiling! A home theater is also a place that reflects your personality and style.

The set up can be a single or multi-screen configuration, or a hybrid of multiple screens ideal for watching sports with a large projection screen that rolls down for serious movie watching. Integrated controls allow the user to choose from a variety of streamed or local content. The content may be exclusive to the theater or shared across the home’s systems from a movie server.
