Many of the top home technology and AV brands unveiled new products in October 2015 at the CEDIA Expo. QEI Security & Technology had a team there to ensure our customers were among the first to hear about these new products.
Here are four new products we can install in your home now:
1. Hidden TV
Typically the man of the house wants the biggest TV possible as the focal point of the family room… the woman of the house wants anything but. We’ve got a solution. We can install a frame around your TV with a motorized screen that covers the TV. The screen can be a family portrait, a mirror or a licensed work of art. Yes, it’s that easy. Watch a video.
2. Mockupancy… and more
As a Control4 Authorized Gold Dealer, we program a lot of systems, and we’re excited about the new features the company has rolled out, including “mockupancy.” This technology records every-day routines and actions within the home—from lights, shades, TVs, music and more—and plays back those actions while a the homeowner is away, simulating the feel of an occupied residence. Also, Pandora, Deezer and TIDAL music services can now be streamed natively from the controller without relying on any additional hardware – score! Read more.
3. TruePlay and the Play:5
We install a SONOS product as part of nearly every system we program. This article does a great job of explaining what makes SONOS different. The article also explains the significance of the new TruePlay feature and the redesigned Play:5 with six speakers.
4. Satellite TV
We are often asked our opinion on satellite vs. cable. Our answer is always satellite. The picture is more clear and you’re getting more value for your dollar. Dish was all in at the CEDIA Expo as part of its big push in the AV industry to become the top service provider.
