A QUICK GUIDE TO CONFERENCE ROOM EQUIPMENT PLACEMENT

A-QUICK-GUIDE-TO-CONFERENCE-ROOM-EQUIPMENT-PLACEMENT

Whether you’re starting a new business or upgrading an existing building in The Woodlands, TX area, one room that definitely deserves your full attention is the conference room. It’s a space for meeting important clients, conferring with stakeholders, and communicating with your team, so it makes sense to ensure it is provides everything you need for business success. Keep reading to learn about the best conference room equipment placement and design strategies.

SCREEN

A common mistake is getting a huge screen that practically covers an entire wall, then not leaving enough space between the screen and your conference table. You can actually calculate the best size screen for the room based on the amount of space you have available between the closest seat and the screen’s desired location. Double that distance, and you have the optimal height for the screen. This height/distance setup keeps the people closest to the screen from having to crane their necks or shift to a different spot in order to take in everything on display.

 

PROJECTOR

Nothing says disorganized like a conference room table cluttered with cords and equipment. You should never treat your conference table as the permanent location for your projector. Not only does the projector take up needed space and create a messy look, but it’s also probably not height and distance for screen clarity. Instead, invest in a ceiling projector rig, in which the projector is completely hidden until you need it. At the push of the button, the projector lowers from the ceiling into the perfect spot for lighting up the screen.

ADD DRAMA WITH LANDSCAPE LIGHTING

ADD-DRAMA-WITH-LANDSCAPE-LIGHTING

A great home design incorporates many ideas. There’s the exterior view; how it looks from the street and its curb appeal. How do the windows play, letting light inside, but also how they look and balance the outside look. What unique exterior finishes or features distinguish this home and makes it stand out?

As a designer, architect, or builder, you know these things better than we do. But we do understand home technology and the role that lighting can play in differentiating a home, highlighting its best aspects, and creating the right ambiance for a home. Any good photographer knows the role that light plays in capturing an image. With the proper lighting, what could be a mundane photo can turn into a spectacular and memorable picture.

Landscape lighting can have that effect on the exteriors of a property. Let us postulate this: if you include the effect of landscape lighting from the beginning on your next home project in the Woodlands, you will multiply the impact of your imaginative designs. Intrigued? Read on for some ideas.

SMART HOME CONTROL VS. AUTOMATION: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

SMART-HOME-CONTROL-VS.-AUTOMATION--WHATS-THE-DIFFERENCE

“Smart home control” and “smart home automation” are terms that are often used interchangeably, but are they the same thing? Short answer: no. Although both technologies are part of the same overall smart home system, they are very different ways of achieving a desired result. Below, we break down the definitions of these terms and what sets them apart from each other. If you’ve been considering adding smart technology to your Houston, Texas home, then keep reading.

DEFINING SMART HOME CONTROL

A smart control system allows you to manage certain aspects of your home, like light fixtures and window shades, remotely via smartphone, tablet, hand-held remote, or a voice control device like Amazon Alexa. Instead of having to walk into every room to open the window shades, for example, you could just open an app on your phone and close them all instantly. As you leave home for the day, one voice command could cause all of the lights to turn off, the window shades to lower, and the thermostat to adjust.

Home control can be as simple as adding a remote for your lights or as comprehensive as a total solution that manages your home’s audio, video, security, climate, lighting, window treatments, and more!
