How to Hide Smart Technology with Home Automation Systems

Building a smart home system is an exciting time in any homeowner’s life. You get new levels of control, a lot of fun new options, and enjoy a safer, more efficient space.

Racking Your Devices

In many smart homes, very little technology exists in any given room. Except for TV displays, speakers, and the like, many control components are neatly stored in an out-of-the-way room or closet.

These racks have two purposes; one is to reduce clutter and the other is to make it easy for our team to service the equipment.

Racks typically look like organized stacks of components with structured cabling leading from each source to the different devices installed throughout the home. When our techs come to service or maintain the system, we can just look at the rack and know precisely what each box does.

But the most significant benefit is that the technology remains out of sight – except when it's needed. 

 

Architectural Speakers

As for the technology you can’t remove from a room, speakers are among the most prominent. Some manufacturers will hire high-end designers to make their products look stylish in any room.

But if you don't want to look at the components while still enjoying high-fidelity sound, the solution is architectural speakers.

Also known as hidden or recessed speakers, architectural units are built into the wall or ceiling and remain out of sight. When they’re expertly placed and calibrated by our team of experienced audio installation professionals, they offer full coverage of the room with no audio hotspots.

Whether your clients want to enjoy units completely removed from view or ones arranged among your already installed light fixtures, there’s a solution that can fit your needs.

 

Hidden TV Technologies

TV displays are also problematic devices. After all, whenever you're not watching TV, do you really want to showcase a lifeless screen throughout the space?

There are plenty of hidden-technology solutions. From panels that hide your display behind beautiful art prints or mirrors, to motorized lifts from a cabinet or the floor to even TVs that feature a built-in ambient mode, there are plenty of ways to keep televisions out of sight when they’re not used.

With just the touch of a button, you can deactivate ambient mode or reveal the TV from your preferred concealment mechanism. You can also integrate controls to simplify matters. One tap brings out the TV and turns it on, as well as turning on the sound system and dimming the lights.
