The Big Screen To Get For The Big Game

Are you Super Bowl ready? Big Screen TV

BIG SCREEN FOR THE BIG GAME

The biggest viewing event of the year is about two weeks away. Thinking about getting a new big screen to host a viewing party for the big game?

What should you look for?

  • PROCESSING SPEED: The picture looks more clear when the TV can process all of its information quicker.
  • CONTRAST: The world is filled with shades of colors. The darker and brighter the TV, the more shades you will see. That makes the picture look more realistic.
  • SIZE: The more your eyes have to move, the more immersed you become in the viewing experience.

try a SONY X900F TV

Digital Trends says “nobody beats Sony at the processing game.”  Their X-1 Ultimate Processor and their X-Motion clarity make every moment beautifully clear.

The X900F also reveals details with 4K HDR contrast, Dolby Vision and their X-tended Dynamic Range Pro.

Finally, you can get a Sony X900F as big as 85 inches. That is likely bigger than what most people currently have in their home.

Upgrading Technology In A Local Home

Smart lights at Bekins - upgrading techology

Our team excels at upgrading technology in your home. One of our Electronics Integration Project Managers shared a video with us recently.  It shows his team changing out the control rack in a local home.

upgrading technology

This home once featured an older distributed audio system and local video. Now it will have both distributed video and audio controlled by Crestron.

What does that mean?

It means the homeowners can control all of the speakers and televisions in their home through a remote, a tablet or a smart phone.

It also means fewer cable boxes and a very clean look with the TV mounted on the wall.

All of the electronics in their home funnel back to this control rack in the closet.

HOW CAN WE UPGRADE YOUR TECHNOLOGY?

You don’t have to build a new house to enjoy a clean, wireless look to your home. Visit our showroom or contact our experts to see how our internationally-acclaimed team can upgrade the technology in your home.

Smart Lights – Local Homes Use Automated Lighting Installed By Bekins

smart lights in local homes

If you think about your daily life, you likely pay for convenience. You have a smart phone, a smart TV, but what about smart lights?

It especially helps when you have multiple stories to your home. When you want to go to bed but can’t remember if you turned off all the lights? Hit the “Goodnight” button. That not only saves you time, it saves you energy and can even reduce your electricity bill.

The pictures below offer recent examples of West Michigan homes with Lutron lighting control installed by Bekins.

The homeowners chose to automate their home with Crestron so they can control their entire home, including the Lutron lights and shades, through their iPad. However, they also have the option to turn lights on or off and even set “scenes” with a discreet control panel on the wall. As you can see with the pictures below, the panel blends in well with the home.
