Key Smart Technologies That Will Upgrade Your Home Theater


Work with a Home Theater Company to Create a Truly Immersive Experience

Your home theater is your sanctuary. After carefully designing the perfect setup for you and your family, it is time to consider other essential devices besides the display and sound system that will enhance your movie experience. Lighting, shades, and a fiber optic star ceiling will take your cinema to the next level.

Add these vital smart technologies to your dedicated cinema by working with a home theater company in Kansas City, MO like our team at Applause Custom Sight & Sound! Keep reading to learn how these solutions will enhance your entertainment experience.



Motorized Shades

Nothing is worse than settling in for a movie and seeing a glare on the screen. Immerse yourself in complete darkness for the authentic cinematic experience. Motorized shades offer simplified control of your window treatments in the home theater, as well as throughout the home, from a single app or remote. If you have windows in your home theater, automatic blackout window treatments allow you to get the most out of your home entertainment space. When you integrate your shading system with your smart home control system, you can adjust shades from the same interface you use to access and control all other devices in the home, including your home theater system.


Lighting is an essential component that should not be forgotten in any home theater project. The right lighting design can make or break the viewing experience. Control your lighting with a simple tap on your smartphone when you install a smart lighting control system. Wall lights, floor lights, decorative lights, and more come together to establish the atmosphere of your space while also illuminating key pathways. Create a customized lighting scene that dims or turns off overhead lights, dims accent lights, and brightens strip lights under furniture and along walkways to create the perfect environment for your movie night. One tap turns everything on when the movie is over, and another tap turns all the lights off when you leave the room.

Know who's at the door

Ever worry that you’ll miss an important package or perhaps your Friday night food delivery while enjoying a movie in your home theater?  With a Control4 door station and control system, you can enjoy your film at full volume without the fear of missing a visitor.  You can place a door station at your gated entrance or directly at your front door and ensure you never miss a guest.  When the doorbell is pressed, the system will pause your movie and switch over to the door station camera, where you’ll be able to see exactly who is at your door. 

simple one-touch system

When your theater has all the bells and whistles, you typically have all the latest components.  With every added piece to a system, it can become harder for those family members that are less tech-savvy to select the right inputs, let alone turn the system on.  This is where the Control4 one-touch system comes into play.  With the touch of a single button, you can turn the entire theater on or off.  A simple-to-use interactive touchscreen will allow you to select any source you’d like to view with absolute ease.
