The modern home is practically bursting with media. There are televisions in the living room, bedroom, patio, dedicated home theater, and even the kitchen! And that’s not even counting the stereo or multi-room music systems many Ponte Vedra Beach, FL area homeowners enjoy. So with all these home audio video systems in every room, what’s the best way to manage everything? We’d love to tell you. Today, we’re going to talk about a great audio/video upgrade you should consider: smart home automation.

In a standard home setup, each television, stereo, or other media device is treated as a completely separate system. If you’re enjoying a movie on the TV in the living room and want to continue watching it while you eat dinner in the dining room, it’s a complicated process. Stop the movie in the living room, turn on the television in the dining room, find the right streaming program, select the same movie, fast forward to the same scene, and press play? Not worth it.
That’s just one example, but the underlying problem is that all of your home audio video devices aren’t connected. They should be.
Today, you can implement AV distribution technology that provides seamless control of all your media devices at once—no matter which room they’re in. With a smart home automation system, every component is integrated. So using a central remote like your smartphone or tablet, you can pull up every television in the home, turn each one on or off, adjust the volume, change the station, swap a movie from one TV to another, and more. Want the same show to play on three TVs at once? All you have to do is select that option on your smartphone.
This system covers more than just smart TVs. Stick a Blu-ray in your Xbox One, then access that gaming console from another room entirely! Place in-wall speakers strategically throughout your home, then stream music in one area or the whole home all at once. However you like to enjoy media in your home, the important thing is that AV distribution makes it easy.
We focused on some specific examples above, but let’s take a step back and look at the big picture benefits that automating your media devices will bring you.
