Where to Start

Before you go thinking gizmos, gadgets, and Star Trek, integrating your home’s technology is really all about your family’s entertainment, comfort, energy savings, security, and, most importantly, convenience.

Integrating the technologies in your home starts with having a cabling infrastructure properly installed to give your system a solid platform to run on.

As the demands increase for higher definition streaming video transmission and having multiple high-quality music services streaming throughout your home you can trust us to prepare your home to be able to handle today's and emerging technologies.

Technology and Entertainment Cabling Systems

Advancements in technology now demand increased infrastructure within your home. In addition to a traditional electrician, a qualified technology expert is also a must. Your family's lifestyle probably includes computers, HDTV, high speed Internet, digital cable, satellite, multiple handheld smart devices, and video gaming.

In order to take advantage of all the ways we use technology on a daily basis, you need the infrastructure and expertise to put it all together to have a system that works reliably every time you want it to. We always use quad shielded satellite rated coax cable, high speed rated data cabling, high quality oxygen free audio cabling and fiber optic cabling systems to accommodate the high demands for today's and emerging technology services.

Whole-Home Distributed Audio System

One of the most requested systems for a new home is that of a distributed audio system. High-quality, almost invisible, great sounding, built-in speakers, combined with elegant volume controls, will allow your family to enjoy their favorite music streaming throughout the house. Dad listens to his favorite Podcast in the den while mom enjoys her Pandora playlist in the kitchen and at the same time, the kids are listening to Amazon Music out on the patio.

From basic to advanced systems, we can design a system that can meet your family’s needs and budget. Let us design the perfect system for you.

Home Theater Design and Installation

A home theater isn't always a big expensive dedicated room of your home. While it can be as elaborate as you can imagine, it can be as simple as a quality display and speaker system right in your living room. Your whole family will love a high-quality entertainment center right in your own home. Your home theater starts with two very important areas, your display, and your sound system. While it is a little more complicated than that, without both of these, you cannot achieve that home theater experience. Speakers come in all shapes, sizes, and price ranges. While in a dedicated theater, a big floor standing speaker may be perfect, something hidden in the walls may be the best solution in the living room.

We will make sure that all of the wires are hidden and make sure you can control all of the equipment even if you can’t see it. Let us help you in designing your space, determine the best placement of your speakers, hang your flat panel, hide the cables, and professionally set up your system. Broad Street Technologies sells, installs, and keeps your system working properly.

Security and Surveillance Systems

Your families safety starts at home. Security is a growing concern for homeowners and businesses alike. Above all, your home needs to be a place where you and your family feel safe, and today's technology makes it easier than ever to achieve that necessary sense of security.

The professionals at Broad Street Technologies have the years of expertise not only to design and install your system, but to integrate it with your other home systems as well. If you have a second home or cottage let us show how you can protect your investment with the ability to check the security, temperature, lights, and even view your property via a camera all from the comfort of your chair from anywhere in the world. We're here to help you find the safety products it takes to make your family feel safe and secure.

Lighting Control Systems

Lighting control can be something you have on one light, in one room, or in your entire home. The advantages of lighting control are the convenience, safety and energy savings. So let's take a quick look at a couple of examples and see if lighting control is something your family might enjoy. Never come home to a dark house. Lighting can automatically come on at dusk, when you pull into the driveway or when you open the door to your home.

Automatically set the perfect light level when you watch television or a movie by simply pressing play on your remote control. Save energy by never forgetting to turn off a light. One button shuts them all off, or they can turn themselves off at sunrise. Tap the light switch while relaxing after work and set all the light to just the right level or full-on if you’re working on something requiring lots of light.

According to the Energy Conservation Enhancement Project at Louisiana State University, “20% of all electricity produced in the U.S. is used for lighting, but 50% of that is wasted by inefficient lighting sources or careless consumers.” The easiest thing you can do to save energy is to dim the lights simply. In fact, most people won't notice when a light is dimmed just 10%, but this relates to a direct 10% savings on your energy bill.

Lighting control is also easy to install in an existing home by simply replacing your current light switches with special communicating switches. Whether it is one room or your whole house, Broad Street Technologies can design and install a system that is perfect for you.

Home Automation Systems

Home automation is not all about more buttons and a system that is too hard to use, but one that is there, working in the background, helping you and your family. Imagine pulling into your garage when its dark out and the hallway and kitchen lights automatically come on. How about pressing a single button on the way out the door that will turn off any lights that were left on, set back the temperature, shut off the music system, close the blinds, and arm the security system. A life safety scenario for a home automation system could be as simple as if the smoke detector in your home goes off that the HVAC system would shut off to prevent the faster spreading of smoke throughout your entire home while turning on the lights in the bedrooms and hallways to assist getting everyone to safety.

An automated home provides security, temperature, lighting, and audio control for comfort, convenience, and safety. Your homes systems can even be accessed and controlled from your handheld smart device from anywhere in the world. Intelligent management of your air conditioning, heating and blinds will lower your monthly utility bill. In fact, your system can generate enough savings to pay for itself!

Central Vacuum Systems

Why should I install a central vacuum system? Central vacuums typically cost about the same as a high-end portable vacuum, yet last much longer and offer far more power. Central vacuums systems are known to reduce allergies, are quiet, versatile, and good for the environment. Used, broken portable vacuums typically end up in landfills after being replaced every few years. Central vacuums are also a smart investment for your home since most homeowners recoup their investment once the home is sold. With a central vacuum, you'll be amazed at how quiet they are. The main source of the noise, the motor, is located in the garage or basement, so the only noise comes from the air flowing through the vacuum and the vacuum head itself. A Central vacuum doesn't stir up dust like a broom, and men also prefer central vacs to portable vacuums and are 80% more likely to vacuum with a central vacuum, because "it feels more like a power tool than a household appliance." Central vacuum motors can be up to three times stronger than the motors in portable vacuums, and because they are stored in a stationary location in the garage or basement, they stay much cooler. Since the motor stays much cooler, it is able to last much longer than portable vacuums.
