Ultra-Short Throw Projectors
Traditional projectors are among the best ways to bring the classic theater experience into your clients’ homes. But ultra-short throw projectors bring the traditional experience into the 21st century. Rather than sitting feet away from the screen, ultra-short throw units work from mere inches away. Plus, they’re encased in stylish cabinetry that makes it more a piece of furniture than an obtrusive electronic device.
For instance, Sony’s ultra-short throw projector is encased in glass, brushed metal, and marble, so it’s a natural element of design to integrate into the overall look of the space. The screens for these projectors are also easier to camouflage than flat-panel TVs if your clients like to hide their technology when not in use.
As wellness becomes more of an entryway into automation for many homeowners, one of the most comfortable and stylish ways to enhance your clients’ spaces is with tunable lighting. Based on the principles of circadian rhythm, tunable systems automatically adjust the color temperature of light fixtures throughout the day to simulate the natural changes of sunlight. Lighting in the afternoon will appear sharp and white, while in the evening, it will become softer and amber-hued.
In a home theater setting, this can help homeowners ease into a restful nights’ sleep. It’s a great way to minimize the impact of artificial lighting on their eyes, while also providing the modern design elements that smart lighting has to offer.
For many home theaters in California, one of the biggest challenges is overcoming ambient light. That’s the light that creeps in through cracks in the windows and other places that can quickly ruin a movie-watching experience.
Motorized shades can integrate with other home theater features, so they automatically lower when the theater is in use. With the touch of a button, users can turn on their system, dim the lights, and lower the shades.
Contemporary options from Lutron and other major manufacturers allow for a variety of style and color options, so motorized shades are an easy way to integrate smart technology into any project.
