Architectural audio is a collection of products and services that allow you to enjoy your music - with ease - and without the clutter.

Automation has reached an age of incredible capabilities, ease of use and reliability . It has reached the age of true usefulness.

Automation starts with a control system that allows you to control different devices as you choose: home theater, lighting, climate control, security, sprinkler systems, hot tub, water softener... All of them.

The whole point of automation is that in the modern home there are dozens of independent systems, and with automation - they're all tied together with one interface, that you can access from any computer, tablet or smart phone, anywhere at anytime.

The real value of automation is that it brings all your important controls, lighting, security, media, climate - together so you can manage them easily and effectively. Automation opens capabilities that can make your home - and your life - so much simpler. And in many important ways - better.

Control solutions have arrived - and they're easy to use, moderately priced and can be extended to a tablet or phone. Where's the remote? Your Smartphone!

Times have changed, and with the complexity of formats and sheer number of channels, services and media - your needs have changed. And it's all about control.

Modern control solutions are smart. They know the status of what they are controlling. It knows if each component is on, off, or what mode it is set to. You want to watch DVD, it knows to turn on the DVD player, what input to set the receiver to, what audio mode, what aspect ratio. Very smart.

Control when it's done well, is automatic, and very reliable. The intelligence in sophisticated remote solutions from Control4 is what sets them apart from their less intelligent and troublesome rivals.

Shoreline Smart Homes can create an audio experience that transports you to the musician's recording session. The music's intensity, immediacy, clarity are all delivered in a way that embodies the warmth, emotion and power of the music.

The world of entertainment has changed. The growth of audio/video components that demand networking has exploded in the last 18 months. Combine that with the growth of networked media servers, streaming content from the cloud, need for access to business files and applications 24/7, it's essential that a robust network is properly implemented to to support the needs of the modern home or business.

Modern home entertainment, computing and communication all hinge on one component - the Network. All services and capabilities depend on it. Everyone wants blazing speed, maximum throughput and reliable access to digital media and content - inside and outside the home.
