Control is the most overlooked component in any home theater or home system. When it's done properly, control is simple, intuitive and as quietly efficient as the thermostat in your home. When it's done poorly, it's frustrating, maddening and is the single biggest source of installation problems.
Control won't receive the same press as the latest new LCD… However in our book, control is the component in achieving the most important issue: your satisfaction. Perhaps part of the problem is the mind set that has carried over from the nineties. If we have a remote control, it will run the equipment. Well... unless you like having a pile of remotes on the coffee table, that work most of the time, you should definitely consider some smart alternatives.
Customers will be the first to say; "I don't need that level of sophistication in control". What they are really saying is, "I don't need to spend that amount of money on control". But while they try to save money in the beginning, they and their family, quickly discover that they can't operate the system, simply or reliably, and in the long term, everyone's frustrated with the installation.
At Genesis Audio Limited we go to great lengths to understand a customer's needs, and recommend the appropriate solution. We recommend what you need, not what you think you want. What most people want is an inexpensive remote control. What they need is a system integrator, which is more expensive. Control solutions are system integrators. They make everything work together intuitively and reliably. The price of a quality control solution has dropped dramatically in the last decade. Today, you can control your home theater, media library, heating and cooling, lighting and security from anywhere in the home, work or anywhere in the world from your laptop or phone.
We're living in the twenty-first century. The old infrared remote controls are a clumsy relic from an unreliable past. Our control solutions are intuitive and reliable. In fact, you'll just love it, and so will your family - isn't that the end goal?
