Home theaters make a great addition to Washington D.C. homes. With mainstream theaters not being common attractions these days, it’s worth it to hire a smart home company like One Source for home theater installation. If you love going to commercial theaters, you’ll love having your own. You’ll get all the perks of a large display and immersive audio plus fewer annoyances like sticky floors, crowds, and people that talk through the movie.
Home theater installation requires a good deal of planning and design. Here are some ideas of what you’ll need and what to expect.

Top-quality speakers are a must to enjoy the benefits that home theater installation has to offer. Typically, home theaters have two speakers in front, two in back, one in the center, and surround sound. Where these speakers are placed depends on the size and shape of the room, as well as seating arrangements. If you plan to have large, reclining seats like a traditional theater, the space they occupy will take special consideration so everyone has equal viewing of the screen and access to sound.
The speakers will be connected to a video input and display device, which will require a central hub with a high-quality receiver and amplifier. Sound a bit overwhelming? Don’t worry -- our home theater installation experts can break it down and walk through the process with you.
If your theater installation is part of your whole home automation system, you may be thinking, “Great, more remotes to keep track of.” But it’s actually much easier than that. You can control all your smart devices, from motorized shades to create a darkened theater experience, to smart lighting, with just your voice. Or you can use an app on your smartphone or tablet to automatically dim the lights just as the show is about to begin.
With Control4 automation and technology, your systems can “communicate” to not only make your home theater experience memorable, but also control lighting and temperature. Set all your preferences under a button called “Movie Night” for ultimate convenience.
