Smart Multi-Room Audio System Installation

The ultimate connection of all your entertainment technology

Music is the fabric of everyday life. It is one of the most beloved human experiences and it has been proven to make us happy and reduce stress. The ambience in a room can be set by simply adding your most favourite relaxing or uplifting music. We all enjoy some sort of music and that is evident in everything we do in life, from the music we choose at our weddings, celebrations and even childbirth.

Our smart multi-room audio systems help you create that perfect atmosphere, allowing you to access your digital music collection, internet radio stations, your record or CD collection and any other centrally located music source around your whole home both outdoor and inside.

What is a smart multi-room audio system?

A Smart multi-room audio is the connection of all your entertainment technology (your TV, radio, laptop, cinema, record deck and speakers) used together to create a seamless experience. This enables you to listen to audio in all or different rooms of the house, without having to carry a portable speaker around or having to regularly change your set-up, something, not too long ago, seemed impossible.

With a smart multi-room audio system, set individual room playlists so that the right music is always playing in the right place, set a personalised doorbell sound, with volumes automatically down when speaking on your door entry system, or be woken every day by your favourite song.

Smart audio banishes a separate radio in the bathroom, a CD player in the kitchen and maybe a sound system in the living room where it was virtually impossible to transfer songs from one room to another. Multiroom audio systems remove these spatial limitations and now make it possible to freely transfer music from room to room or have it in every room, controlled through one smart audio system.

Scalable multi-room audio systems

Our smart multi-room audio systems are truly scalable from a single room to huge multi-building homes or hotels with large numbers of sources and complex routing requirements. No matter how complex the system our clients are always presented with an easy-to-use interface while our systems do the hard work.

Discreet multi-room audio system design

All the equipment is housed in a central AV (Audio Visual) Rack avoiding the need for AV equipment dotted around the house. Creating the perfect whole-house audio system is no longer a compromise between sound quality and aesthetics. our state-of-the-art audio equipment can produce the highest quality of sound whilst complementing your interior design with a choice of speakers.

Unlimited flexibility to choose from a range of speaker options

Get your audio delivered through on-wall speakers, freestanding speakers, discreetly hidden in-wall or in-ceiling speakers, or stylish tabletop speakers. At Intelligent Abodes, we want our clients to have the ultimate in sound, style and quality, so we recommend the award-winning Bowers & Wilkins, Monitor Audio or Bang & Olufsen from single to multi-room audio and home cinemas.

Monitor Audio, Bang & Olufsen and Bowers and Wilkins offer custom install speakers with stunning sound at various price points, so everyone can enjoy the amazing sound. They are all engineered for the discerning client who demands great sound that seamlessly integrates into the decor of their home.

They have perfected the mid-range sound, by using groundbreaking technology. The midrange is vital to the quality of sound – why? Because this is the most sensitive area for the human ear and it is where most of the musical energy is situated. They have perfected sound quality by creating balance, with a mid-range close to perfection, and a base that adds richness without overwhelming the overall sound – why choose anything less than perfect!

Have your own favourite speakers? No problem, we can connect our multiroom audio system to your existing speakers, so you won’t miss a note.

Individualised music for all the family

Our smart audio systems take you to the next level, allowing all the members of the family to browse, select and enjoy their own music independently, in every or separate room. So, your family never have to listen to the music being played by another member of the family if they don’t want to. Their music can even follow them around the house as they move from room to room, perfect for busy households.

You can set a range of modes, for example, when entertaining, simply choose party mode to begin your selected playlist in every room. Independent pre-set volume levels mean the games room could be loud and raucous whilst the dining room is quiet and reserved, control your music with locked control interfaces to stop guests (or your children) from turning up the volume or changing tracks.

Full Intuitive control

Multi-room music systems will allow you to share your collection throughout the house or in one single room. Additionally, we can also configure the smart home controls to lock all the control panels other than your own handheld device to prevent access by children or guests!

Control via an app

Control your entire audio system through one secure app. You’ll have an overview of what is playing in each room, so you can make changes to this at any time. Play, pause, volume up, volume down, next track – all directly through the app, making operation as simple as possible.

Smart Doorbell

If someone rings the doorbell, the sound will be played throughout – unlike classic doorbells. In a home environment, if the children are in bed, don’t worry, our system will take this into account and exclude their room from any notifications.

Smart security alarm

Should an alarm be triggered you’ll be instantly informed with an alarm tone in all relevant rooms/areas. Thus giving you as much time as possible to react. We often couple multi-room high definition video distribution along with multi-room audio. This then allows you to view as well as listen to CCTV feeds all-around your home.

Text-to Speech

You can set pre-defined messages that can be read out to you in certain circumstances. For example, you could be told if you’ve left any windows open before you leave.

Record voice announcements

Within an App, you can quickly and easily record individual voice announcements which can then be played in a specific zone. This can even be done remotely.

Personalised wake-up alarm

Wake up to music. Just set your wake-up time and music will start fading in to gently bring you out of your slumber.

Intelligent Automation

When you enter a room, you’ll be welcomed by your favourite music or radio station. Then when the room is no longer in use, the music will then automatically be turned off.

Room Off House Off

Our Touch switches will deactivate the music in any given room, or in all rooms.

All under control

Thanks to our integrated media control solution, entertainment devices can be combined in harmony with the rest of your multiroom audio system.
