Newport Audio is CAT’s less expensive line, but features the same technology as their flagship products. These have been our staple for excellent whole-house and in-wall speaker applications.
When we need an innovative solution for a surround sound room, Triad Audio is where we turn. We have found their in-ceiling directional LCR and surround speakers very useful when speaker placement is difficult or not available for in-wall or on the display. We also use Triad when speakers are meant to be hidden in the room. The grilles can be painted to match the wall color. Triad also has excellent in-wall subwoofers that do not protrude into the room and can be placed in discrete areas.
Space is not always possible for three individual left, center, and right speakers in a surround sound room when placed around a television display. Artison has a unique pair of speakers that mount on the sides of the television display, and have grilles that match the display in size and color. These speakers also feature built-in center channel speakers, so no additional center channel speaker is necessary.
We have been using Monitor Audio products because they offer an excellent product for the price.
For home theaters, fantastic sound while playing recordings and broadcasts as they were meant to be heard is extremely important. We have used ADA’s pre-amplifiers in our home theaters for clean and natural surround sound free of artifacts and noise.

Litetouch lighting control systems use stylish keypads instead of light switches throughout a home. These keypads have custom engraved buttons to control any individual lights or scenes that include multiple lights in a room, area, or entire house.
Control is handled through a central control unit (CCU) that receives information from the keypad button presses, processes the commands, and transmits the signals to control modules that are linked to specific lighting loads and fixtures.
Changes are easily made to button labels and button programming, so the end user can determine exactly how the controls fit their lifestyle.
Chesapeake Smart Homes typically installs the Coastal style keypads due to the elegant style, easy to read buttons, color options, and bright LED backlights.
We have found Yamaha AV receivers, DVD players, and Blu-ray players to have exceptional quality and reliability.

We often place cameras at main entrance areas, such as doors and gates, and trigger the camera picture to appear on televisions and touch screens when a doorbell or entry button is pressed. The DVR devices record upon motion and store this data for the client to review or use for security purposes. Internet access is easily achieved to view your home’s cameras from any location.
