How Smart Lighting Comes in Handy & Sets the Perfect Mood
TAGS: Motorized Shades | Smart Lighting
Once you experience smart lighting, it’s tough to go back to the standard on/off switch with no customization options. Those who have not witnessed the beauty, convenience and thrill of smart lighting may wonder: Is it really necessary? A lot of things in our lives are not necessary per se, but they make life much more convenient.
Looking back at the introduction of new technology, we often approach change in the same way. When text messaging was first introduced, many wondered, “Why do I need that? I can just call a friend.” When voice assistant technology arrived, many questioned its necessity. Now, more than 60 million Americans use smart speakers.
The same applies to home lighting control. Be one of the first to enhance your Manhattan, NY home with intuitive smart lights and reap the benefits. Below, we highlight when you’ll routinely use smart lighting so you can envision your life with it.
During These Uncertain Times, Total Home Technologies Provides Complimentary Remote Upgrades & Troubleshooting
In Manhattan and all surrounding areas right now, businesses are closed, more people than ever are working from home, and children are not in school. Our daily routines and plans have been turned upside down, and the future is uncertain. If you own a Control4 smart system, you may have assumed that during this time, integrators are not operating or servicing clients.
Luckily, the opposite is true—we are open and here to help. Whether you have worked with us before or not, Total Home Technologies’ Help Desk is offering complimentary Control4 assistance now through May.

TAGS: Home Theater | Surround Sound
Some movies need to be experienced not on a TV (or dare say a laptop)—but in a theater. Whether it’s by Stanley Kubrick or Christopher Nolan, you deserve to enjoy your favorite movies with the best video and audio quality. With the right speaker system, you’ll feel the Titanic sink into the Atlantic and hear James Bond’s car wiz by as if you’re really there, all from the comfort of your home.
With social-distancing practices currently in place, now is the time to upgrade your home theater. Although we can’t go to the local movie theater now, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy cinema-sized entertainment at home. Why not bring your family together during this confusing time and make the most of it in your private theater?
To achieve cinema-quality sound in your theater, you’ll need high-end speakers installed in optimal locations. But surround sound can be daunting to get started with. What does 5.1 and 7.1 mean? How many speakers does one need? And what exactly is Dolby Atmos? We answer these questions below to help you create a home theater system in your Mendham, NJ home.
