There’s something magical about going to the movies—the pitch-dark theater, the vast screen, and the excitement of seeing something new. But there are drawbacks: disruptive theatergoers chatting throughout the film; running to the bathroom and missing important scenes; or getting stuck in a seat too close or too far away from the screen.
Why not bring the allure of cinema into your home with a custom home theater? If you have extra space or are starting a renovation soon, consider the following tips to build the best audio and video solutions in your Las Vegas, NV home.

Your Connected Home Needs High-Performance Networking

In our hyper-connected world, connectivity is no longer a luxury but a necessity. One of the most interesting aspects of technology is how the world adapts to it. For centuries people did not have telephones, but after its invention, it revolutionized communication around the globe. The same happened with electric power, and we can’t imagine a world without those two technologies.
In a similar vein, we have adapted to depend on always-on connectivity. If we need to find directions to a destination or dash a message off to a family member, we reach for our smartphone. These things depend on a network and internet connection, or they don't work without it.
Your home is similarly dependent on robust connectivity. Entertainment continues to move toward internet delivery, and services like Netflix and Spotify are entirely reliant on a network connection. Smart thermostats, lights, and security also depend on connectivity, especially if you want to control any of these functions or know the status while you're not at home.
While some devices still work best with wired connections - and we recommend wired for specific applications like video distribution - the trend with new devices is fully wireless, which means that your home wireless network in Las Vegas needs to be up to the task. After all, most of the remote control of functions depends on wireless connectivity. Whether it's the smart remote for your audio-video system or the app on your smartphone for your smart lock control, reliable wireless is critical.
Eagle Sentry takes a professional approach to wireless networking. This means professional grade equipment, installation, and service and support. Read on for a closer look.
