Automation: OneTouch AV
There are many options available for a whole home automation system, but OneTouch decided based on many years of experience that the best results would be achieved by using a total Crestron® solution.
The right combination of Creston product offers seamless delivery, contol and reproduction of audio and video in high definition.
Among the features of this system are:
– A superor large touch screen experience while keeping the technology to dirve it hidden
– Crestron High definitiion surround sound processor that provides cinema quality performance.
– ProAmp perfectly delivers audiophile quality.
– Limited cable runs: Using a combination of wireless signal and Crestron technology, OneTouch was able to keep cable runs to a bare minimum. This made it possible to install all the technology with limited millwork and no changes to home decor.
– A state of the art media server system that streamlines storage and retrieval of content
Timely supply of product and ease of assembly that resulted in less disruption for the client and lower labour costs
The client is delighted with the results. They are now enjoying movies, broadcast television and sporting events from the best seat in the house without the frustration of a bewildering collection of remotes controls.

Creating spaces that enhance the life experience
In our stressful world, the bedroom should be an oasis of calm. Indirect dimmable LED lights are not only energy efficient, they also enhance the decor of any bedroom.
By adding the lights to your home automation system, you can use the touch of a button at your bedside to turn on the lights anywhere in the house. This is especially good if you have to check on a crying baby or find out what that noise is downstairs.
Music in the bedroom is overlooked, but should be a part of the system.
Whether you use the bedroom as a computer room, a refuge to read in or a place to relax and have a nap, your choice of background music can help. Or, you can hear the latest weather report in the morning as you get ready for your busy day.
All the music selections can be easily controlled from your bedside touch panel or from an I-device.
Another item that has become standard equipment in most bedrooms is a flat screen TV. You could just have a cable signal, but why stop there?
In a fully automated home, you can have access to the internet, Netflix, cable and satellite. Why not add a wireless keyboard and surf the internet from your bed on the giant screen?
Use your bedside touch screen and you can call up any film that is on your media server.
Start watching a movie in the living room and finish watching it in bed. Access all your favourite sports channels. The sky is the limit.
You can even put the TV sound through the ceiling speakers for a theatre experience in your own bed.
Cost-effective audio distribution affords a luxury Crestron® solution at a mid-tier price for small to moderate sized houses, condominiums, and businesses.
Lets everyone enjoy their own choice of music, sports or news in any room as part of a complete Crestron® system.
