Ready to Invest In a Home Control System?

Thinking About a Whole Home Audio System?

Here Are the Four Things We Consider In Building the Right System For You

Thinking About a Whole Home Audio System?

Whole home audio systems can be the perfect mood enhancer – or stress reliever.  Imagine coming home from work after a long day, feeling a little tired. You might pour yourself a glass of Willamette Valley Pinot to wind down, and turn on a relaxing Pandora station. With a whole home audio setup, the music will flow seamlessly from room to room as you go about your home routine in Portland. 

Does that sound relaxing?  Sure it does.  But whole home audio is more than just about speakers.  A few other pieces are needed for a stellar audio experience.  Read on to find out more. 

Relieve Stress

Let a Home Automation System Be Your Assistant

Relieve Stress

We all have busy lives with many things to do and remember.  The last thing you want to think about as you shuttle your kids to their summer activity or rush out for an early work meeting is little – but important – things you may have forgotten to do at home.

If you’re the person that just might get a little distracted with the crush of daily life and wonder whether something at home is the way it should be, a home automation system can be a big help – and a stress reliever too. 

It’s not just about stress, but security and maintenance too.  Leaving a front door unlocked could invite an unwanted intruder.  While the wet Pacific Northwest seasons mean you don’t have to worry much about sprinklers for your landscape, you do have to turn them on for the drier summer weather. 

Let’s see how a home automation system can make your life a little less stressful in Portland. 

What to Ask Before a Home Theater Installation

Ask Your Professional These Three Questions When Getting Started

What to Ask Before a Home Theater Installation

Home theater technology keeps moving forward at a rapid pace.  In the past few years, we’ve seen a huge reduction in cost for the latest audio and video technologies.  You may have heard of these technologies like Dolby Atmos surround sound and 4K resolution with High Dynamic Range (HDR).

What does this mean for the home theater you’re considering?  You will need an installation professional that understands these technologies and the infrastructure that supports them.  Even if you’re not planning to take advantage of the new technology now, you want to be sure your installation will easily support them when you are. 

If you’re upgrading or thinking about a new home theater room (or space) in your Portland home, here are three good questions to ask your home theater installation professional. Naturally, we at Room Service Integrated Solutions have the answers to these questions and any others you may have.
