When updating or renovating your Zionsville, IN home, you may want to consider how you are going to host guests. You need to have a room ready for relatives and friends who want or need to stay with you. Providing a comfortable bed and clean bathroom are musts, but what about making their stay extra special with home automation? Add a 4K TV, invisible speakers, and custom controls and your visitor will be in awe of your smart home. Not only will they feel welcome, but they will also have a story to talk about! Read this blog to discover some ideas on how to be the perfect host with technology.
Surprise Guests by Hiding Your Technology
Ensure your guest room looks beautiful and has all of the best amenities with invisible technology. Put a TV in the bedframe, behind a piece of artwork, or in the ceiling and watch your guests' jaws drop as the screen appears. The Premier Group uses motorized lifts, TV mirrors by Seura, enclosures, and custom AV furniture to hide technology. With a custom home theater system installation, your friends will have a memorable night enjoying movies while they're in bed. We can also install TVs in the bathroom mirror or shower so that they can watch the news or other programs as they get ready in the morning.
Provide Easy-to-use Controls
It's an exciting feeling when you have all the controls in your hands – especially when they are easy to use. Whether it's a universal remote that can turn on the TV, lower the lights, and set the thermostat, or an app on a sleek iPad, the type of control matters and contributes to your guests’ experience. If the controls are too confusing or difficult to operate, people won't be able to relax or enjoy the entertainment. Keep a touchpad mounted on the wall in the guest room, have custom wall switches installed for easy access to one-touch scenes, or simply provide an all-in-one remote control to your visitors. Your guests will be impressed and excited when they hit one button and the TV appears, the shades close, and the lights dim for an evening of entertainment. It doesn’t matter if your grandma is in town, or a young relative of 16, both will be able to navigate your smart home with ease.
Welcome Them with High-Tech Amenities
The fun part of having a smart home is planning for various occasions. So if you have a guest arriving, you can prepare for them with automation. For example, create a playlist of their favorite songs and have it playing in the house when they walk in your front door. Download their favorite TV shows and movies using the Kaleidescape movie server so they can unwind and watch content in 4K after a long day of travel. Have you made special plans with your friends that week? If you have an early wake-up time for your day trip together, make it easier for them using your smart controls. The system will automatically turn on the lights, music, and morning news station right at 6 a.m. so they can get a jump start getting ready.
So it turns out that your best asset for entertaining and being the perfect host is automation! Contact us online to have us design your media room, guest house, or the entire home with smart technology!
