Whole home automation means having the various sub-systems in your home integrated to be centrally controlled from user interfaces, astronomical clocks, or physical events.
The best experience is one that includes a large, highly sophisticated group of integrated subsystems made simple for any end-user to operate with little or no training.
The ideal home would contain distributed audio and video, lighting and climate control, security integration, and at least one room with a high-quality surround system, all controlled with a state-of-the-art control system.
The best control systems available today come from Crestron and Lutron, and we have years of experience designing, programming, and implementing these systems.
A Media Room is a common room in the home, such as a Family Room, Great Room, or Game Room, with high-performance surround sound audio and a large, high-quality display. While most common when the home doesn’t include a dedicated home theater, the two are not mutually exclusive.
The best Media Room includes little to no compromise in interior design while allowing for discreet placement of components for an exceptional movie, television, or gaming experience.
The ideal solution would include hidden components that are only revealed when the system is activated. For example, a projection screen hidden behind a large work of art that moves to reveal the screen, and a projector that lowers on a lift out of the ceiling.
To create the best experience, we use Marantz receivers, Monitor Audio speakers, JL Audio subwoofers, Samsung TVs, Screen Innovations projection screens, and projectors from Epson and Digital Projections.
A Home Theater is a dedicated room in the home created specifically for the purpose of maximum performance audio and video. While primarily used for watching movies, a theater can also deliver stunning performance for television/streaming programs, sporting events, and gaming.
The ideal theater would have absolute control of all light for the highest-quality video, and would be shaped in a fashion that the acoustics are predictable and treatable.
A serious Home Theater would include speakers in front, around, and above the seating positions, enough subwoofers to accurately control and deliver bass, no windows (or shading control to make the room absolutely dark), a very large screen, and a full acoustic treatment to maximize sound quality and minimize ear fatigue.
In our theaters, we use Marantz processing, ATI amplifiers, main, surround, and overhead speakers from Monitor Audio, subwoofers from JL Audio, projectors from Digital Projection, and Screen Innovations screens.
An Outdoor Living space includes comfortable seating for the family and guests, speakers and a display for watching TV, and usually is placed near the grill for cookouts.
The ideal Outdoor Living space would include components designed to be used outdoors year-round but still integrated into the rest of the distribution systems.
The most important option for Outdoor Living is always a TV that is specifically made to be used outdoors. These TVs are brighter than regular displays, sealed to keep insects and moisture out, and weatherproof.
Our Outdoor Living rooms include TVs from Sunbrite and Seura and speakers from James Loudspeaker and Monitor Audio.
It’s been 2 ½ years, but we have now completed the installation. Dee and the team have been responsive, caring, and outstanding. You have an amazing team!!
It’s been about nine months since we moved into the house and we really like all of the systems. The sound systems, cameras, gate system, electric blinds, TVs work very well. The quality of the sound is excellent and you can make out every word of a song, no matter where you are. We are very glad we chose the electric system vs the manual chain for the blinds. The wiring of the barn was a good idea - the Sonos and internet are very useful and was a great feature to add to the barn. Overall our feedback is “job very well done and we are very pleased.” Your team was very responsive, and the equipment, installation, and operation exceeds our expectations.
Ben came and took care of everything. His kindness, personality and expertise were great. Thank you for sending him.
My in-laws are raving over you guys. Noting how professional and courteous they are and the excellent work they are doing. Just wanted to share that with you. Thank you.
I know Chris always says, "It's my job," but he always goes above and beyond. His patience and kindness are valued and appreciated. Greg and I especially want to thank you for giving us your Saturday evening to help us help a dear friend. Thank you.
Currently on the back porch enjoying some tunes. Really appreciate the system y'all installed. Thanks again.
Just want to let you know Al and Mike are great men and getting things put together nicely. Thanks for sending them.
Thank you, Craig. I only have fond memories of us working together. You guys are the best. I’ve met the new owner and he definitely is a tech/AV aficionado. I’m sure he’ll be reaching out to you soon. I certainly hope that our paths cross again my friend. Gracias.
Craig and his team at Branson Design Group have proven to be both reliable and extremely helpful. They have always been there when we needed them, even on short notice.
After 5 years of getting over charged, under serviced and never having people show up on time…then bill for more than they estimated, I met Craig and Marshall from Branson Design Group. They have done what they said on the day and time agreed upon while never asking for a penny more then they promised. I will soon be upgrading my system with their help and never would have considered doing it had I not finally found the company in Branson Design Group to handle it. First class all the way.
I never realized how much I would enjoy listening to music in my bathroom. I actually look forward to getting up in the morning.
I had an audio visual and lighting control system in my previous home and was hesitant to install another one in my new home because of past problems. Craig assured me that with proper design, installation and programming, I would have a system that I loved that would be without the headaches I experienced before. He was right, I love my new system! Thanks Craig, and the entire team at Branson, for changing my view on control systems.
