What is a prewire and why is it important?
The definition of prewire is "to wire in advance of usual installation". "Prewire" is the part of the project where all wiring and cables are run through studs and walls prior to sheetrock. It is genearally done while the electrician is wiring to avoid any conflicts or interference. Decisions made during this phase impact the ability to expand and/or upgrade your infrastructure to meet the specifications of current and future components. A custom design will help you avoid any future installation issues. If possible, Halo Audio Visual always recommends designing the A/V prior to any construction taking place. This allows us to work with the contractor and electrician to avoid any unnecessary building revisions.
Why do I need a universal remote control?
Most of the systems we install are comprised of multiple components such as cable boxes, receivers, blu-ray players, apple tvs, roku, etc. These components are ideally hidden from view. This poses many challenges in maintaining an "esthetically neat" and "easy to operate" system when attempting to use the original remote controls. Some of the challenges posed are:
1) Multiple remote controls needed to operate the system.
2) Multiple confusing steps in order to use the system.
3) Direct line of sight needed with IR remotes.
A custom programmed universal remote control can eliminate all of these issues. It allows multiple programmed commands to be sent to your hidden components from one simple remote.
