Should You Hire an Integrator for Your Home Theater Project? (Part One)

Lucid Integrated Systems has 8 important points to consider…

Should You Hire an Integrator for  Your Home Theater Project? (Part One)

Whether remodelling an existing space or constructing a new home (and home theater), you’re going to want to work with a personal technology professional who is adept at collaborating with interior designers, architects, electricians and more. Why? Lucid Integrated Systems, the preferred home technology engineer for the Midwest (including Minnesota and Wisconsin), has 8 good reasons/important considerations…

8 – Design Capabilities

In the same manner that you and your architect designed the house as a whole concept rather than designing each room in a vacuum (and then hoping the overall look is consistent & fluent), you'll want to hire an integrator that designs, specifies, installs, and interfaces all the low voltage systems. And they should all work as one!

7 – Convenience & Peace of Mind

You'll want to find a company that handles all facets of home integration so they can they connect the theater lighting controls (from any manufacturer), as well as the video networking, multi-room music, HVAC controls, and everything else you want interconnected with your home theater. You'll also want a custom integrator that can provide simple controls that allow you to tie them all together. Prep a movie viewing from anywhere in the house, or turn off all the lights and secure the rest of the home while you're enjoying a film in your private cinema.

6 – System Support

What type of after-the-sale support does the firm offer? Will the company be available on weekend afternoons during the big football party should you need help with the new system? If your system doesn't work when you need it to, why invest in one? These are all important questions to be considered (and answered) as you decide the best course of action.

5 – Ease of operation

Does the installer explain the operation of the new system in a manner that is clear to everyone that will be operating the system? Do they leave behind customized System Guides to support the demonstration of how to operate the system as a reference should you forget how to operate a certain feature?

Stop back here for the top 4 tips/considerations for whether or not to hire an integrator for your custom project, and be sure to call Lucid Integrated Systems to answer any and all questions about your home technology options!
