Smart Home Lighting
Revolutionize the Way You Manage Light in Your Home
In an average home, controlling your lights is all about flipping lots of switches. The lights in a room are either on or off. Depending on the time of day, however, the amount of natural light, and what activities you're going to be doing in the room, smart automated lighting can revolutionize the way you experience lighting.

Security & Cameras
Audio Advice designs all of our systems specifically to meet your personal security requirements. This includes creating zones of protection - defined areas covered by specific sensors and detectors. In the event of an alarm, having defined zones enables the system to communicate where the alarm is occurring as well as the type of alarm (i.e. intrusion or fire).
Outdoor Audio & Video
Whether you're looking for some simple outdoor speakers, rock speakers, or a custom-designed Sonance landscape system, we can help. Our speakers can blend right in with the environment, providing incredible sound to your entire backyard. We can even bury outdoor subwoofers, to provide literally earth-shaking bass.
