The Latest Trend: Smart Home Theater Systems

If you’re the type of person who is always on the lookout for the latest home improvement trends, then we encourage you to think outside the box of paint colors and flooring options. Instead, one of the most popular trends these days is a smart home theater system. Whether you have an underutilized room in need of a purpose or simply want to upgrade the tech in your living room or media room, keep reading to learn about this popular new technology and the benefits it can bring.

Breaking Down the Components of a Home Theater System

First, we need to establish what a smart home theater system actually is. At its core, any home theater is likely to have these two elements:

Surround Sound

If your theater lacks surround sound speakers, it can’t really be called a theater. The surround sound setup is what creates that immersive experience that makes you feel like you’re in the middle of the movie scene.

Ultra HD Projector and Screen

While you can set up a home theater using a 4K TV, there’s something about the projector and screen setup that gives the right “movie theater” ambiance. And with an ultra HD projector, there’s no beating the visual quality.

However, what has been becoming super popular lately is a more sophisticated approach…

The Smart Aspect

Home automation technology is what sets a smart home theater system apart from the rest of the “projector and surround sound” setups out there. Home automation helps to solve one of the big problems that keeps people from adding theaters to their homes—the fact that theater systems are often complicated and difficult to operate.

If you have to spend 20 minutes trying to figure out how to swap from Netflix to your Blu-ray player and get the surround sound up and running, you’re probably not going to want to use your home theater very often. That’s hardly the relaxing, effortless movie-watching experience you get when you go to a commercial theater, after all.

Fortunately, a smart home automation system has the solution. It connects all of your media components, from the speakers to the screen, as well as different elements of the room such as the lighting, window shades, and thermostat. Using your smartphone or a dedicated tablet, you can access everything at once.

And here’s the best part: with this smart technology, picking out a movie or TV show is as simple as pulling it up on the touchscreen and pressing “Play.” As soon as you do, the screen will lower, the projector will turn on, the lights will dim, and your movie will begin! The entire room transforms into the perfect environment instantly.
