    How to Get the Most Out of Your Video Conferences

    Last updated 12 days ago

    The latest video conferencing technology can make collaboration between colleagues cheaper, more convenient, and more efficient than meeting in person. If the elements that make video conferencing technology revolutionary are not all there, however, the results can leave much to be desired. In order to improve the efficacy of your video conferences, make sure that all parties to the conference are equipped with the following information and video conferencing technology.

    Consider Appearance and Preparation

    If you are making a sales pitch or want your input to be heard at a video conference, you still need to practice and dress the part. Even if you are tuning in from home, you should take the time to dress up and look fresh. Practice your pitch or presentation just as you would if you were to deliver it in a room full of people.

    Set Up the Best Lighting

    It is now common for a video conference to serve as the first form of exposure that a potential employee or client has to a company. If you want to make a good impression on the talent or partner you are trying to recruit, accent the best qualities of your boardroom or office with integrated lighting. A home automation and commercial A/V wiring solutions provider can help you with this.

    Get the Right Technology

    The technology used in a video conference can make a significant difference in the quality of your meetings. High-resolution video, clear sound, and a speedy internet connection can make you forget that you are using video conferencing technology at all and enhance your delivery on the other end. A video conferencing technology dealer who is familiar with your wants and needs can help you choose the perfect equipment for your office.

    If you work in an environment where time is money and professionalism goes a long way, hire an intelligent office design and video conferencing technology expert to enhance your virtual boardroom. With a strategic design, optimal lighting, and top-of-the-line A/V technology, your video conferences can be just as compelling and engaging as traditional boardroom meetings.

    Exploring the Benefits of Home Automation

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Imagine that you have just arrived at the airport with your family to catch a flight, when your partner asks if you locked the front door. You had quietly been wanting to ask the same question, but did not want to incite anxiety and unease if unnecessary. Chances are that one of you did lock the door, and with a Control4-configured smart home, you can pull out your smartphone and double check, locking any doors and windows that were left unlocked without even having to step out of the flight check-in line. Continue reading to learn more about the major benefits of home automation.

    Boost Security

    When you have the ability to control your home’s automatic locks from your phone, monitor your security cameras, and check up on the kids you have trusted to stay home alone, your home becomes a safer and more secure place. Add to that the ability to check up on and control your HVAC, lighting, and water-intensive appliances, and you can ramp up the control you have over preventing fires and floods in your home. Automating your home may even help you qualify for a deduction on your homeowner’s insurance premium.

    Curb Energy Consumption

    Home automation takes programmable thermostats and sprinkler systems as means of saving energy to the next level. Override presets to keep your home’s temperature lower for longer on days you have to stay late at the office or keep your sprinkler heads from popping up on rainy days. Over the course of the year, your smart home system could cut your energy costs by hundreds of dollars.

    Improve Comfort

    A major perk of home automation is that you can reduce your energy costs and consumption without impacting your personal comfort. In fact, the freedom to adjust the lighting, audio volume, or temperature in a room without having to get up will probably translate into greater at-home comfort for you and everyone in your household.

    Are you ready to enjoy the many benefits of home automation? Have your home’s system and appliances automated with Control4 technology, and you will experience peace of mind, comfort, and conveniences you never dreamed possible in your Chicago home. To request a consultation with one of our Chicago home automation and smart home system specialists, call Tunnel Vision Technology Inc. at (312) 386-7219.

    Tips for Designing Your Home Audio System

    Last updated 2 months ago

    With the right equipment, proper room acoustics, and professional home audio system installation, you can enjoy seamless, professional-quality sound in your home. However, designing a truly premium home audio system takes time and requires the expertise of a professional. To learn more about what to consider when designing a home audio system, read below.

    Identify the Purpose

    First, think about what kind of home audio system you want. Some people want an audio-only sound system, which can be installed in almost any room with good acoustics. Others want a multi-media home theater system, which requires you to consider both acoustics and lighting. Knowing from the beginning what type of home audio system you are looking for will simplify the shopping and design process.

    Choose the Right Components

    Choose equipment that has the right power output to fill the room with sound, as an underpowered system will sound cheap, while an overpowered system will be overwhelming. Be sure that the audio system components fit into the available space in the room. You will have to consider where to put major components such as the amplifier, speakers, and subwoofer. Choose appropriately-sized, high-quality cables for your audio system to ensure a seamless look and great sound.

    Evaluate Room Acoustics

    Getting the right audio system components is just as important as putting the components in the right location. Room acoustics take into account direct sound as well as how the sound bounces off of the floor, walls, and ceiling to reach the listeners’ ears. The placement of furniture and other objects in the room also has an effect on the room acoustics.

    Hiring a professional is essential to make sure you have the right components for your audio system. At Tunnel Vision Technology Inc., we have been installing home audio systems and integrated home automation systems for years. Call us at (312) 386-7219 or visit our website to learn more about how we can create the perfect audio system for your home or business.
