To stay on the leading edge of smart home technology, you need to keep your finger on the industry’s pulse. Nowhere is that heartbeat stronger than at the CES Show in Las Vegas. It sprawls to nearly overwhelming proportions, with new innovations around every corner. CES 2019 did not disappoint, and AVX was there to tap trends and identify solutions to make our customers’ homes as intelligent as possible
Listen Up — Audio Innovations
Remember when the iPod came out and changed the way we listen to music? Well, we’ve come a long way since then my friends. Today, in the comfort of your own home, you can stream a wireless classical sonata in the living room, groove to jazz in the kitchen, while the kids rock out in their rooms — all at the same time and all from the same smart audio system.
AVX uses Control4 to fill your home with tunes — along with news, sports, and entertainment. With Control4, your interaction with audio content is visual and easy-to-use.
- Showcases album cover artwork so it’s simple to find your favorite artists and tracks on
smart phones, tablets, the touch screen, or TV.
- Access millions of songs and thousands of artists through popular streaming services like Pandora, TIDAL, Deezer, Napster, TuneIn, and iTunes.
- Stream music and operate controls from any device — for any room in your house.
Of course, all this technology is silent without high-definition speakers. Swing by the AVX showroom to check out the speakers that made the most noise at CES 2019, from brands including Focal, Paradigm, MartinLogan, GoldenEar, and Bose.
Seeing is Believing — Smart TVs
Smart TVs were on full display at CES, with most of the buzz hovering around 4K projection and home theater design. That’s right up our alley at AVX. We work with customers to create home cinemas with dazzling 8.3 million-pixel images, immersive best-in-class surround sound, and customized environment lighting for unforgettable viewing experiences.
- Watch videos from multiple sources including media players, hard drives, and portable devices.
- Control everything with an easy-to-use remote or innovative touchscreen.
- Choose a projector from Epson, Sony, or Optoma and projection screens from Screen Innovation and EPV.
Comfy Cozy — Climate Control Systems
Gone are the days when you had to walk to a wall-mount thermostat to adjust your heating or air conditioning. With smart home technology from AVX, you can do it with a voice command inside the house, or from anywhere on the planet with your smartphone, computer, or tablet. Your climate automation system ties everything together, including radiant flooring, forced air, dual-fuel, and geothermal systems.
With a fast, easy home consultation, you’ll discover the ideal wireless thermostats for maintaining temperature and humidity control; fireplace sensors that you can control from any device; and even automated window and skylight screens for shade when you need it and sunlight when you don’t.
Bright Ideas — Smart Lighting Solutions
No smart home is complete without smart lighting solutions, and CES 2019 in Vegas was lit up with new lighting systems. Featured were top-of-the-line technologies that we specialize in at AVX, including full-color LED bulbs and light strips. They allow you to illuminate your home with pre-selected scenes and colors that you can adjust any time to match your mood.
We discovered many other innovations at CES that are perfect for any smart home. Schedule a showroom visit to check out new wall panel technologies and smart fan speed controls that give you wireless access to ceiling fans from anywhere. Many of the 2019 offerings sync to Google alarms to mesh with your daytime and nightly routines. There are nifty switches, sockets, and plugs for 2019 too, including smart plugs that allow you to control up to three different devices through a single outlet.
Naturally, breaking technology also lets you extend automation and options outside your home. Control outdoor patios, pool areas, decks, hot tubs, docks, boat houses, gardens, and more with enhanced smart home lighting. And remember to ask about our revolutionary outdoor flood lights with integrated motion detection. They’re easy!
Get a Lift — Smart Garage Solutions
Outfit your garage with the same smart technology as your home, for continuity and convenience. With technology from AVX, you can control the lighting and climate inside your garage from the palm of your hand. If you have a visitor, delivery or service call scheduled, you can even create one-time access codes and receive notifications when they’re used.
Safe & Sound — Smart Security Tech
We’ll help you determine the security of your property with a single visit to AVX. In addition to leading alarm systems, customers really appreciate our smart locks (deadbolt and non-deadbolt) that can operate by touchscreen, keypad, fingerprint scan, mobile app, or voice-recognition. From smart video doorbells and wi-fi security cameras to state-of-the-art smoke and CO2 sensors, our mission is to keep your family safe.
One stroll through the aisles at the CES 2019 show proves that smart homes just keep getting smarter. And luckily for our customers, what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay in Vegas. Schedule an AVX showroom appointment today and we’ll show you all the latest home tech solutions.
