Have you ever felt frustrated trying to set up music for a party? It’s definitely a buzz-kill when your friends and family are ready to dance to some fun music, but you can’t get the audio system to work. Additionally, if you own just one system, you may have to move it outside or into another room where the festivities are happening, which is time-consuming and extra work. But when you have a whole house music system, you can turn on your music playlists with just the press of a button and stream it to any room in your house –and outside too! All you have to do is pick a radio station, like Pandora, or create a custom playlist for your party, and then save it to a scene for later. Your scene can incorporate lighting, video, shading, and more. Pick a name, such as “Halloween Party”, and then when the time is right all you have to do is open the Control4 or Sonos app on your tablet or smartphone and touch that name. Your music will start playing out of all the speakers in your home automatically, or just in certain designated areas. If you have Amazon’s Alexa, you could also turn on the scene by saying, “Alexa, turn on Halloween Party!”
After the day is done and your family is off to bed, every true audiophile knows that there’s no better way to unwind than with a few great songs and a comfortable chair. A dedicated listening room is a space in your home designed for the very best sound quality. Here you’ll have your high-fidelity stereo system, the most robust sounding free-standing speakers and specialized acoustic treatments in the walls to make your home sound like a state-of-the-art music studio. A dedicated listening room should be your own private escape to auditory bliss.
Whether you are trying to wake up early or training for a marathon, music can help motivate you to action. If you need help getting out of bed in the morning, pick your favorite invigorating songs and then save them under a “Good Morning” scene. Instead of waking up to an annoying, blaring alarm, you get to hear your favorite artist instead. At the same time, your shades will rise to let in the morning sun, and the TV will turn on to show you the news. When it’s time to go for a run in your home gym or work around the house, choose some upbeat songs to listen to. With music streaming at your side, you can pick from endless amounts of songs and playlists. Spotify and Pandora are just a couple subscription-based music services that have themed playlists for many different activities.
