Many homeowners are overwhelmed when contemplating how to work with entertainment and technology systems. Luckily, most are smart enough to know that this isn’t a “weekend warrior” project. Like a custom home built from scratch, a home entertainment or management system needs an experienced architect and a set of elegant plans. We’ve made starting this process a simple with organized systems to meet various levels of technology, wants and budgets. At our first meeting we will review your project and find which system(s) most closely match your needs so you can get an idea of how much your system will cost and how it will function.
CONTROL EVERY ASPECT OF YOUR HOME WITH THE CLICK OF A BUTTON
Control is at the heart of all of our entertainment or home control systems. Control is the way we provide you with a simple user interface (UI) to control all of your various systems. Think of control as your personal on-site technician that runs everything for you. When you want to watch TV you simply press, “TV”, on your remote. The controller receives the command and does all the many things that are required to watch TV on a modern system. In this case, the control system knows it’s 4PM and the sun is coming in the window – so it closes the sunshade, then turns on the TV, satellite receiver, and surround sound as needed, and finally selects the proper inputs for the TV and surround sound.On a multi-room system it also switches the HDMI (digital) signals to the proper components. Then it tells the remote to turn to the ‘satellite’ page so you can control the satellite receiver. This all happens in a few seconds with one button push! If it’s night-time, the control system knows it and instead of closing the shade, it might dim the lights by the TV. You may want to look at your CCTV cameras to check on the stables or pool. The control system allows you to do so with the touch of a button. You can also adjust the room temperature as needed and the lighting levels in your room or the whole house.
Remotes can be a larger touch panel as shown at right for the whole house control or a small handheld control for control of just the room you’re in. Integrations with iPads, iPhones, and other handheld devices makes controlling your home even more intuitive.
There is no simpler way to control the comfort and safety of your home than with a control system implemented by Raymond Earl Design.
Music and Home Theater Systems
THE FOCAL POINT OF YOUR HOME EXPERIENCE
Entertainment is what our family and social lives often center around. Raymond Earl Design makes entertainment simple and convenient, without sacrificing amazing quality sound and video. Whether you entertainment needs are for just one room or across your entire home and outside, our entertainment systems provide the enjoyment of modern technology without the hassle! We are dealers for the finest equipment and speakers available in order to give you the best entertainment experience. We typically centralize a main system that sends the video to the TV and the sound to the speakers located in the walls or ceiling of any room in your home. This means you will have no components in the room distracting from your interior design. All you need is just one of our remotes to operate the main systems. And yes, you can watch or listen to different sources at the same time from different rooms or have the same channel or movie playing everywhere!

PROTECT YOUR HOME AND BELONGINGS
Closed Circuit TV is a way for you to remotely keep an eye on your home and surroundings and have a visual record of what has occurred. If you are away from your home or job site you can see what is going on with a computer, iPhone or iPad by going to your web address. Should something happen, you can review the DVR (Digital Video Recorder) and provide a copy of the video to authorities as needed. These are great for homes, businesses, construction sites, vacation homes, pools, and wherever else you want security.
