How we can automate your home and business

Ah, that time between Spring and Summer has finally arrived in Knoxville. Pollen covers every exterior surface imaginable in yellow blankets of dust. The quickly-warming temperatures remind you that the humidity of a Tennessee summer isn’t far off. Right now it is baseball season, but soon enough, the UT fight song will be echoing from every living room in Rocky Top while we watch our football team make it all the way to the national championship this year (a girl can dream). You begin to think about the home theater you always wanted, and how great these games would look on a big screen. You think of the home theater that would allow you to be immersed in the experience of the stadium, without having to buy tickets to the game or spend eight dollars on a beer--that theater with state-of-the-art audio technology, the one you always put off on installing because other things came up along the way. Hey, we know that life happens, and things get put off. Here at iSS LLC.  we are here to make your life a little easier—and a lot more fun. Now featuring Control4 home automation software, we can create the home theater of your dreams--and tailor home automation installations to your personal wants and needs. Still not convinced?

TVs & Projectors & Theaters Oh MY! Time to Upgrade!

 

Are you a Big Sports fan? Let's see, with March Madness starting today, NBA Play offs April 16th and the & MLB starting April 3rd I can't think of a better time for a TV, Projector or Home Theater Upgrade! Every year sees new models that are bigger, better, with more features and lower pries. When is that point where the performance difference of a new device is worth the hassle and the cost?

What to look at when upgrading:  

 The easiest way to start is by comparing how much better the newer models are  compared to your current model. You will want to compare things like picture quality, LED/LCD vs OLED, if you would like 4K or even 8K now adays and size. 

 Another thing you might like to consider for upgrading would be 3D  or Features/Internet streaming. A lot of TVs now offer built in streaming options for movies, gams & music which is a very fun and convienient option to have! 

When considering a new projector or projection screen most of the same things apply as far as what to consider, especially picture quality and size. Some of the new screen are INCREDIBLE as far as the vibrant color and large sizes and even in a lighted area they can be as vibrant as a TV! Unlike TVs, which have only improved slightly in the past few years, projectors have gotten significantly better.  

 Another wonderful upgrade or add on to consider would be outdoor entertainment. Yes now you can take the party outside and watch your favorite sporting event in the comfort of your own backyard!

Companies like SEURA & SunbriteTV have many different size options that offer impecable picture quality for all outdoors weather & conditions including direct sunlight! There are even companies like Camp Chef that off outdoor projection screens! The ultimate in portable screens. It features a huge silver screen made of durable Oxford nylon reflective material for quality high-resolution picture and enriched colors. Perfect for movies, business seminars, and sporting events.
