A little less than a century ago, our country pulled itself together in a common goal each evening. In groups, citizens gathered by a little box in their home. Expectantly, they sat beside it.

home networkA search for the best home network on the internet can feel a bit like falling into a rabbit hole. The internet in itself can become a maze of information. Every search leads to the access point of another. Those access points of information seemingly become endless. A never-ending labyrinth of knowledge. In fact, a few key lines from Alice in Wonderland come to mind.

The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down a very deep well.”

Rabbits have diligent purpose as they create their maze of tunnels. Knowing which trail to follow requires expertise. If you choose the wrong tunnel, you may go deeper than expected as Alice did. Down she fell. After all, she wasn’t a rabbit. She didn’t have the expertise. (more…)

Essentially, our smart home systems actually anticipate what makes you the most comfortable. Whether you want the heat to kick on before waking or arriving home, we make it happen. Similarly, you can program shades and curtains to open and close based on temperature or time of day.

2. Easy Entertainment

Additionally, we help you control entertainment throughout your home. Not only, can we provide surround sound indoors and outdoors, we work with video devices as well. While cooking, enjoy your favorite playlist in the kitchen. Or, keep the vibe flowing into any room of your house with seamless integration. Program party or dinner music to provide a relaxing ambiance in your own home.

Likewise, control movies and video wherever you wish to see them.  Want to catch the game as you catch your breath doing tasks throughout your home? We can set up devices to do exactly that. Perhaps, you simply want a soothing video or movie to play in multiple areas.  Our smart home systems make this achievable as well.

Home Audio System Solutions and Speaker Selection

Decades ago, Simon & Garfunkel created a truly beautiful medley of sound that echoes through our speakers to this day. Of course, the deeper meaning of their music wasn’t simply about the Sound of Silence. However, their words channel the soul best when you experience them resoundingly and loudly. Truly, to achieve full immersion, you need a quality home audio system that flows throughout your home. Therefore, if you’re yearning for more than just the sound of silence, Synergy Integrated Systems brings music to your ears. In fact, we move far beyond that directive by providing customization and control for the best experience possible.

Finding a Premium Home Audio System

Clearly, we’ve begged a couple of questions. First, what is the best home audio system? Generally, this isn’t a one-size-fits all answer. Instead, we ask which home audio system best benefits you and your lifestyle. How you wish to experience sound determines systems and installation techniques. Notably, you can channel and control quality music within any room in your house. Therefore, we customize installation to match each individual need of our customers in the Raleigh to Wilmington area and beyond.

For instance, a media server is a convenient way to store your favorites. In addition to sound, these devices store movies, CDs, MP3 files and digital photos. Similarly, we offer audio distribution systems. Access multiple sources of audio in each zone of your home by remote control or keypad.

Superior Speaker Selection

Next, you may wonder: “Which speakers provide the best sound for our home?” To that query, we have excellent answers. We partner with some of the best sound resource companies in the industry. Just a few include:

  • Origin Acoustics – specializes in landscape audio systems. Their line includes in-ceiling speakers or hidden theater systems.
  • Crestron – is where high-end performance meets beautiful aesthetics. Essentially, this incredible line is worthy of a place in every room of the finest home, office or classroom.
  • Episode – speakers evolved with one parameter in mind: sounding great in your home. With customizable systems, these speakers are perfect for any area.
  • JBL – makes your audio system come alive! From earth-shattering subwoofers to towering floor standing speakers, JBL has it all.

Home Automation Systems Offer Smart Devices to Control Your Home

As technology improves, smart devices are popping up in homes across the globe. Not only do they provide an extra level of control for lighting and the like, they’re simply fun to use. However, that level of fun decreases a bit when these smart devices don’t work in tandem. For instance, one remote switches lighting level, while you must find another device to adjust sound. Perhaps, your smartphone connects to security. Then, another panel regulates exterior tasks. Eventually, keeping up with all of these different devices gets frustrating. At that point, it’s time to start thinking about home automation systems that integrate many of your control areas.

Types of Home Automation Systems

Initially, let’s consider all the systems that you can control in your home and narrow it down from there. In fact, you may be surprised at all the things home automation systems can do. Not only can you alter lighting and audio, you can manage other settings as well.

From inside your home or across the world, turn heating and cooling up or down and save on utilities. Likewise, lower or raise shades at will. Better yet, schedule it. Similarly, program landscape lighting and sprinkling systems to turn on. Or, warm up the spa and remove the automated cover so it’s ready and waiting for you! Furthermore, manage security features remotely. Lock doors and check on your home whenever you wish.

Synergy Integrated Systems offers these options and more with the innovative systems we offer. From Crestron to ELAN, these home automation systems make home control as easy as a touch of a button. In fact, the newest ELAN 8 software eliminates the need for multiple control panels and apps. When you wish to entertain or simply relax, the last thing you want to do is fumble for a device.

ELAN’s diverse smart devices include:

User Interfaces – With the approach of a hand, in-wall touch panels wake from sleep. Instantaneously, a seven-button keypad offers one touch access.

System Controllers – Coupled with brains and beauty, ELAN’s elegant controllers include the flagship gSC10 to the media room-ready g1.

Multi-Room Audio Video – Enjoy unprecedented multi-room control with the UltraMatrix™ series of A/V controllers. With the ability to carry HDMI, Ethernet, serial and IR signals, you get everything you need with a single cable.

4K HDMI Solutions – Finally, enjoy seamless, smart integration with true 4K HDMI solutions. Included are matrices, splitters, switchers, extenders and AV over IP. Plus, amps and surveillance incorporate into your system.

Calculating Costs

After feeling the excitement of all the great options home automation offers, minds tend to wander to installation cost. Fortunately, Synergy helps with that as well. Essentially, the final price depends on the scope of your project, equipment and devices you choose. To make it easier, we offer a free consultation to go over your budget and desires. During this time, we’ll help you narrow down your wish list. Or, expand it. Ultimately, it’s up to you. Moreover, we provide a fixed-price estimate. This is imperative to avoid unexpected costs.

Additionally, we believe in healthy competition. In the end, it serves us all well. With that in mind, Synergy provides non-compiled code of the system programming we write to each of our customers. Why does this matter? It means that you can feel confident down the road if you need enhancements or repairs. You will be free to check with other vendors. Of course, we hope that you will choose us thanks to our outstanding expertise and customer service!
