The 2017 Automation Design + Entertainment Holiday Gift Guide

Gifts for every tech enthusiast on your list!

The 2017 Automation Design + Entertainment Holiday Gift Guide

And so the 2017 holiday season begins! And it looks like another banner year for technology – everything from the latest tech gadgets to the luxurious. We’ve got some great ideas for all the tech-lovers on your list, from budget-friendly to the extravagant. We’ll help you think outside the giftwrapped “box!”

The Gadget Lover: For the #techgeek in your life, give the gift of integrated control of his/her smart watch, Amazon Alexa, or C4iWatch and a single-room starter package that allows for expansion over time. An upgraded home network may be in order so that all those new devices can be added to their Internet of things (IoT).

The Traveler: Today’s traveler is connected to their mobile phone and apps, and securing their home while away is a great comfort. Imagine bundling automated door locks, a “certificate for a Home Automation Starter Package” and an app-filled smart watch Top it off with noise-cancelling headphones and a bow!

The Music Lover: Music lovers will appreciate high quality sound in many forms. Having the ability to play their favorite playlists anywhere in their home is a must, so portable solutions with Bluetooth (Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin) or a custom speaker package are great. Serious listeners will enjoy a set of high-fidelity (B&W PX Wireless) headphones, sleek AV furniture and an over-the-top chair for the “sweet spot.” As for the gear, let’s create a custom package that allows him/her to audition the system that “speaks” to them. We’re great at designing the perfect listening room AND at keeping Santa secrets! 

The Sports Fanatic: Your armchair quarterback would love a new all-in-one remote or single-room control package. (Are you ready to bundle? We’ve got the perfect starter package!) And how about some his-and-her custom theater seating with automated footrests and a convenient armrest/cubby to stash the remote? Or, go all out and add a 4K screen or multi-screen set-up! Even add game day excitement to the patio with a weatherproof (Michigan season-proof) outdoor TV with audio and control package. 

The Outdoor enthusiast: For those who love the great outdoors, a beautifully designed outdoor audio system would bring a lifetime of enjoyment. A portable, poolside music solution could be just right and an outdoor TV offers game day fun and family movie nights. Outdoor lighting is also an elegant touch, offering lighting scenes that highlight garden features and walkways.

The Gamer: Today’s gaming graphics are stunningly real-to-life. But all that data and detail, not to mention virtual reality (VR), require superior resolution. Along with the 2-way headset, add a 4K display and high performance audio system for a fully immersive experience. Oh, and yes, this might be a good time to evaluate the capabilities of your home network!

The Movie Buff: Simple! Let’s create the perfect home theater or media room. Consider custom, luxurious theater chairs, a popcorn machine, candy cases with all their favorites, marque signs and, of course, a projection system or new display (4K, OLED, QLED), surround sound package and a motorized drapery and lighting control package to signal “show time”! And since content is king, a Kaleidescape Movie Server.

For Santa: Well, the sky’s the limit. If you’ve got grand ideas for your home or business, let’s formulate a plan for your current needs and future goals. Then, let’s get a ProCare Service Plan in place for peace of mind in the Auld Lang Syne. Call or come by today--we’ll help you “wrap up” that gift list and let you enjoy the season!
