Ultra-Short-Throw Projectors

Traditional projectors are the most common way to bring the classic theater experience into your home. However, ultra-short-throw projectors offer a traditional experience with a 21st-century upgrade. Rather than placing it many feet away from the screen, ultra-short-throw projectors sit up close, mere inches away. Additionally, they are typically encased in great-looking cabinetry that works just as well as a piece of furniture as it does an entertainment device. 

For example, Sony’s short-throw offering uses glass, brushed metal, and marble to create its cabinetry, so it’s a seamless addition that integrates into the look of the space. And when you’re done watching movies and TV, the projected image disappears. You won’t have to look at flat-panel TVs or other wall acne.

Tunable Lighting

Wellness has become an entryway into automation for many homeowners. It’s one of the simplest and most stylish ways to enhance your rooms. And the most popular advancement is tunable lighting. Using the principles of circadian rhythm, tunable systems adjust the color temperature automatically throughout the day, simulating natural changes of sunlight. Light in the afternoon appears sharp and white, while evening light becomes softer and yellowish.

In your home theater, this can help you ease into a restful nights’ sleep. It minimizes the impact of artificial lighting on your eyes, while also offering the modern design elements that smart lighting provides.

Motorized Shades

For many home theaters in Texas, one of the most significant challenges is dealing with ambient light. It’s the light that creeps in from behind the shades that can quickly ruin your movie.

Motorized shades integrate with other home theater features, so they automatically drop when the theater is in use. With a single button, you can turn on their system, dim the lights, and lower the shades.

Contemporary options from Lutron offer a variety of style and color options, so motorized shades are an easy way to integrate smart technology into any home.
