Many best agers in the 50-plus generation would like to live independently within their own four walls for as long as possible. This is where technology can help and support: With a smart home home automation system, certain scenarios can be programmed in your own home and thus support the normal processes or, if necessary, automatically call for help. In the event of an emergency, you can activate all lights and alarm systems and inform relatives with a single push of the panic button. Care services can also be closely integrated into the Smart Home.
But of course the pleasant things can also be easily regulated and controlled at the same time via a touch panel. Pre-programmed scenarios for light, TV, music, heating, blinds offer a lot of comfort and simplify life. With the help of sensors, e.g. the sun blinds, heating, light become independent and regulate themselves automatically, saving electricity included! Motion and presence detectors simplify daily life. A motion detector can ensure that the cooker switches off if there is no one in the kitchen for a certain period of time. So you can forget about the pot. The entrance door is monitored with picture and sound and shows the owner in the house who rings the doorbell. As soon as the doorbell rings, the video camera at the entrance transmits the live image and the intercom is activated – a finger wipe is enough to open the front door to people you know without having to get up. The door can also be opened using a chip or code – no more searching for keys. Life becomes simple and easy, saving money inclusive!
When leaving the apartment, a single “button” can be used to switch off the entire apartment and activate the alarm system. If windows are still open, the house control system reminds you to close them by means of an audio-visual display. This gives security and a good feeling.
These are just a few ideas of what a smart home can look like. The Smart Home / apartment needs to be well planned and properly implemented. Just ask us. We will help you to transform your home into a sustainable Smart Home.
Give your home an avant-garde touch!

This crisis, which got us all into trouble, is of course not quite over yet. Step by step, openings are now being planned.
Cinemas are still waiting for the green light from the government. No one can yet estimate what this will mean for the industry.
The new films are either be postponed or put directly onto a streaming platform. With a great screen

In moments of great uncertainty it is time to stand together and master the Corona crisis together.
After the Federal Council’s press conference yesterday, 16.3.2020, it is clear that our shop is closed until 19 April.
We in the specialist trade must now become even more flexible. Of course, you can also order from us via our online shop if you feel like shopping. As long as the post delivers – we can do it too.
What’s missing then is the listening experience and advice. That’s why you should also support the specialist trade after the crisis – yes, it will end at some point – and shop locally in the shops. In this way you help us and others with your purchases to overcome the crisis after the crisis.

It all started with Dolby Surround, which was developed by audio specialist Dolby in California. Most cinema films have had the digital “Dolby Digital” standard since 2012. Dolby Surround ensures that every sound is heard where the sound engineer wanted it to be. But time has not stood still since 2012. Dolby Atmos is still new today but will become the standard for Hollywood productions in the near future. Netflix and Amazon Prime are also upgrading as we speak.
And what is so new then? The Dolby Atmos technology allows an almost unlimited number of audio tracks. Strictly speaking, these are sound objects that can be positioned at specific coordinates in the private cinema. If a movie is streamed in Dolby Atmos no problem. Dolby Atmos is also downward compatible with older systems like 5.1 or 7.1. The big difference? The 5.1. or 7.1 speakers used, each emit the same sound.
Dolby Atmos can provide each speaker with an individual signal and thus uses an unlimited number of audio tracks. This enables many more front, surround and ceiling speakers to be installed. A realistic simulation of rain, birds or helicopters is possible. That’s what Dolby calls “The Voice of God.” The sound from above gives a completely new sound dimension. In the old cinema you can hear the sound from everywhere but never from above. You can look up to see if there’s really anything there. The sound can be so intense.
Incidentally, the algorithms of Dolby Atmos technology calculate in real time which loudspeakers have to be activated at what volume in order to correctly simulate the moving, sound-generating object. Together, this creates the immersive Dolby Atmos sound image.
Sounds exciting right? You have to have experienced and heard the immersive Dolby Atmos sound and you will see: It does not get any better than this. Call us and arrange a session in our private cinema
