Home Media

Home media systems today include high definition flat panels, architectural loudspeakers and streamlined AV components to give you the best possible sound and video.  Even if the room doesn’t allow a complete home theater system setup, we bring together the highest quality audio video equipment to suit your entertainment needs.  As part of simplifying your digital lifestyle, media servers stream music, movies and TV shows anywhere in your home from the Internet. From single room, whole-home, or outdoor, our home media systems can be controlled from a remote, touch screen or entirely from your smartphone or tablet.

 

Home Theater System

It all starts with the home theater design process. Avidia will help you create a warm, inviting environment matching the rest of your Lake Forest, Illinois home. We’ll guide you through the electronic equipment selection process. Then we’ll provide professional installation and calibration of your home theater to ensure its highest performance. A custom user Interface will be created for the control device in your theater that’s both intuitive and easy to use. Further on, if you need help with theater seating furniture, we can help there as well along with custom woodwork and acoustical treatments. Avidia also offers custom LED lighting and star ceilings.

Multi-room Music

Whole house audio systems send music to any room in your Winnetka home via a central processor or matrix switcher. The days of a volume knob on the wall are long gone. Control of your music is simple and intuitive by means of a touch panel, keypad, handheld RF remote, iPad® or similar Wi-Fi smart device. Whether the speakers are placed in the walls, ceiling, bookshelves, shower or pool, they can be designed to aesthetically blend in to minimize visual impact. In fact, if you can’t get wires to a location, no problem. We have wireless solutions that enable you to enjoy your music from anywhere. You’ll need fewer components since a single music server or a Pandora station from your smart phone can be shared in one, several, or all the rooms of your home.

Multi-room Video

Distributing video in your home enables a single video source, such as a satellite receiver, game console, or Blu-ray player, to be shared across multiple TVs via a video matrix switcher. This significantly reduces the amount of sources needed for every TV in your house and hides all the home av equipment in a storage closet or basement where it can easily be serviced. Instead of watching your Apple TV only in your family room, you can easily watch it on any TV in your home. By integrating the video distribution with a smart home automation system from Control4 or Crestron, you can further simplify your control experience.

 

Outdoor Entertainment

Outdoor living spaces have become an extension to our homes and there’s now a wide range of technology solutions built to withstand the elements without compromising performance. Add music, video, and lighting control to make the perfect entertaining space for family and friends or create a great spot for a much needed personal respite from the everyday. Enjoy superior sound from speakers that blend into your landscape and watch your favorite sports team or movie on a flat screen TV that not only weathers the storm and the sun, but minimizes glare for quality viewing even on a bright day. When the sun goes down, set your outdoor lights to create ambiance either automatically or with a single press of a button.

High Performance Audio

Elevate your listening experience with a high-end audio ystem that will wow even the most discerning audiophiles. Whether you’re in the mood for streaming audio or an album from your collection, you will be able to hear the difference with a high-fidelity sound system. Today’s audio is a pleasing blend of old and new technologies. You can have a computer-based system alongside your turntables and tube electronics and experience audio nirvana from both. Based on the quality level you desire for your listening needs we’ll create the best combination of equipment from amps, preamps, receivers, speakers and more for your Highland Park home.

Mobile Control:

Imagine added convenience using your mobile phone or tablet as a remote for easy control of your smart home automation system.

Lighting Control:

Lighting control allows you to change the mood of any area of your home to suit the occasion. Whether watching TV, dining or entertaining, one press of a button can create the ideal atmosphere you desire. For example, press ‘Goodnight’ to turn all your lights off or “Pathway” to light the way downstairs. Increase safety by linking with the security system to turn all lights on if uninvited activity is detected. Lighting control systems save energy.

Energy Management:

With real-time monitoring, you can have a dashboard display of your home’s energy usage to see where it’s being used efficiently or inefficiently whether you’re home or away. Control systems optimize energy consumption while maintaining comfort. Easily access and make adjustments of your electrical, water, and gas usage to save energy. See calculated savings and the reduction in your carbon footprint in response to your adjustments from dimming lights or lowering the temperature.

Security and Surveillance:

A safe and secure home for your family needs to be smart enough to alert you when you’re home or away. Preview streaming video from security cameras right on your touch screen display or iPad®, iPhone® or Android™ device. At home, use your touch screen as a video intercom system so you can see who's at the door. While you're away, disarm alarm systems to let in the housekeeper or babysitter, then activate it as soon as they leave.

Home Theaters and Media Rooms:

Maximize your entertainment system whether you have a precisely designed dedicated home theater or an exhilarating and functional media room. Many spaces in your home from living rooms, family rooms, master bedrooms and outdoor patios can be recreated into a multi-purpose media room, concealing a home theater that only reveals itself at the touch of a button. We can engineer hidden screens and speakers that descend from ceilings, hide inside framed artwork, or rise from specially-designed furniture.

Entry Systems:

Our entry systems can be standalone or integrated into your phone system so that when someone rings the doorbell, your phone rings. You can pick up to speak to the visitor, or press a button to open the gate. Add video capability, and you can see who’s there. Or program your doorbell to pause the music system or provide notification on your TV so you never miss a ring. Access can be controlled with magnetic door locks, biometric fingerprint access, and perimeter barriers such as gate control.

Media Distribution:

Your home av system sends audio and video content to any room in your Kenilworth home via a media matrix switcher. Locate your AV equipment out of site, yet distribute the content to all areas of your home without worrying about the clutter of finding a place for local source gear in each room. Control your whole house audio and video content from any control interface such as your iPad®, iPhone® or handheld system remote.

Centralized Distribution:

Centralized Distribution allows for complete control and connectivity of your home technology for every room, every application and every budget. The power of total integrated control and seamless connectivity all manifest from one centralized hub. Your home’s beauty is enhanced with less wall clutter and equipment spread throughout. System expansion is easy; every room and each smart device is simply another node on the network which is the backbone of the home.

Solar Panels:

Create an eco-friendly home and reduce electricity costs by harnessing the true power of the sun with solar energy. Residential solar panels or solar modules are used as a component to a larger photovoltaic (PV) system to generate and supply electricity to residential applications throughout the home including lights, HVAC, appliances and other electrical devices. This renewable energy solution is reliable and will reduce your ever-rising utility bills and almost no impact on the global climate.
