Theater Advice
Frisco, Texas
Outside-the-Box Automation
AFTER NEARLY a
quarter-century in the
business, Theater Advice has
designed and integrated a
vast array of technology
solutions for residential
projects of all sizes, styles,
and scopes. But nothing
prepared the team for this
project. Unique features and
applications of technology
resonate throughout the
12,000-square-foot estate,
requiring Theater Advice, as
CEO David Huse explains.
There are a host of interesting
ways to welcome
guests to a home via technology
- brightening the
lights as they approach the
front door, using the doorbell
to activate music, programming
a pathway of lights from
the driveway to the entrance
as a car enters the property,
for example. Theater
Advice raised the Welcome
44 | CE Pro November 2021
bar further by presenting to
dinner party guests a beautifully
scripted list of courses
on the menu. The Menu is
displayed on a 19-inch Séura
TV flush-mounted to a wall
in the foyer. Theater Advice
connected the display
directly to a PC hidden in a
nearby closet so the owners
can conveniently key in the
bill of fare.
The dedicated theater is
impressive in and of itself,
fitted with a 170-screen from
Screen Innovations, 11-channel
Dolby Atmos audio comprising
color-matched Triad
in-wall and in-ceiling speakers,
Epson projector and
three rows of seating. But
it's what's hidden under the
last row of chairs that sets
this entertainment escape
apart. As family members
and their beloved pets settle
into the grand entertainment
space, the last thing
they want to do is leave the
room to let the dogs out.
A hidden door built underneath
the last row precludes
the interruption. The dogs
can exit on their own - into
an air conditioned, monitored
kennel. From there,
they are free to roam to a
fenced outdoor dog run,
Huse says. All the while,
the owners can access the
surveillance cameras and see
the dogs via the Control4
app on their smartphones or
the home theater screen.
Also receiving a unique
touch of technology is the
master bathroom. Here,
positioned over the urinal is
a 19-inch Séura TV. Simply
turning on the bathroom
light signals the display to
activate and tune to ESPN.
The opposite happens when
the light is turned off.
Despite having to work
around a lot of cement and
retaining walls outside, Huse
notes, Theater Advice was
able to add Origin Bollard
speakers to the landscape by
the lazy river and adjoining
swimming pool, sports court,
and putting green. All of the
common areas have a display,
and even some of the
closets, the patio, and two in
the kids' 1,500-square-foot
" bunk house " on the third
floor, one of which is dedicated
to gaming. CE Pro
