Wellness is an ongoing hot topic, and the technology industry is no different.  At Echo Workshop we offer air and water purification systems from Pure365 and Bluewater to help eliminate allergens and toxins.  Whether you’re looking for a single room or a whole-home solution, Echo Workshop has the technology to help keep you and your family healthy. 

Have you been feeling tired lately?  Perhaps you can’t sleep through the night.  Echo Workshop has partnered with companies like Savant Systems and Lutron Electronics to simulate your circadian rhythm.  We spend more and more time indoors and to keep our bodies and minds in balance, we not only crave the outdoors, but truly need it.  By simulating the sun’s natural path through automated lighting, many sleep issues can be eliminated, mood disorders improved, and, as an added benefit, people often find themselves with far more energy.   

I think most of us can admit that over the past couple of years we have learned that we like being at home, and our homes don’t just provide sanctuary, they can provide us with a lot of fun.  Have you been thinking about turning an extra room into a theater, or perhaps adding audio and video features outdoors?  Echo Workshop has the newest technology available from Samsung, Sony, Sonos, Revel, and Sonance, to take your family’s fun to the next level.

Home automation helps make our lives just a little easier.  With a smart home system that will monitor your security, improve your living environment, adjust shades, lights, and your thermostat, and allow you to enjoy whole-home audio and video, our homes truly can take care of us.  Let Echo Workshop help your home take care of you.

HOW A HOME THEATER ELEVATES ENTERTAINMENT

FAMILY NIGHTS

Studies show that regular routines, like having dinner together, increase the chance that a child becomes resilient to the changes in life. In our modern age, however, it can be hard to create such routines. We often eat on the go as we rush to sports or dance practice and don't have time to establish regular routines. Add to that the pressures of different schedules, and it can be difficult to get a family together. Having a home theater system gives your family an event that they can look forward to every week. You might not be able to afford to go to the movies every weekend, but you can watch a streaming movie on your home theater system and create the same kind of memories, and the snacks are much cheaper too.

SPORTS

No matter what sport you enjoy, you probably can't see it live as often as you like. Tickets to events are expensive, and it can also be costly traveling to where the game is. Seeing the big game on a home theater is the next best thing. You feel like you're actually there live as the size of the screen brings all the action to you. If you're watching football, you can see more of the field. If you enjoy pro wrestling, you get the feel of the fight in your living room. Not only can you enjoy the action, but your friends and family will flock to your home on game day, creating a party atmosphere. A home theater gives you the feeling of going to the big game without ever leaving your couch.

GAMING

If you've never played a video game in a home theater before, prepare to be amazed. It will feel like you're right there in the video game. Blast aliens and experience the action. Play Madden and feel like it's an actual football game. The level of detail a home theater system brings to gaming is unreal. If you're a competitive gamer, you need a home theater system to succeed. Your opponents will have a home theater setup, and if you don't have one, you won't be able to see the entire screen as well as they will. You'll be at a disadvantage before you even pick up the controller. A home theater system makes any video game session a video game experience.

SOUND

When you go out to the movies, you have no control over the sound. It can be too loud or too soft. A home theater system makes the movie seem like it comes alive all around you, and you can control how loud or soft it is. You can turn down the sound for action scenes that would hurt your eardrums in a theater and then turn it back up for soft dialogue. It puts you in control!

CONCLUSION

A home theater doesn't have to cost a lot of money. You can start with a Sony TV and surround sound speakers in your Houston home, or create a real experience with a Sony Projector to amp up your viewing experience! A home theater system with Sony innovations will save you money on the price of popcorn and turn your home into the place all the kids want to hang out. As your Houston Sony dealer, Echo Workshop is excited to help you elevate your entertainment experience.

HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OUT OF BATMAN DAY 2020 WITH YOUR OWN HOME THEATER

OW_Home_Theater_W_Batman_e03cc6f271f98bfcb9e85b159aecd5da

GOTHAM IS A DARK AND AMBIENT PLACE

Ambiance can turn a small, cozy night into a backdrop for something magical. With the proper lighting, no matter the size or grandeur of your home theater you can obtain that dark, solemn cave-like feel of The Dark Knight. Turning off all the lights is one way, but using Lutron smart lighting technology you can take it to the next level. It is a small piece of the puzzle, but lighting does play a huge role in getting you in the right mood. 

FEEL THE NOISE

If you want the gruff voice of Batman trembling throughout your room, you'll want to turn up the volume on your perfectly calibrated surround sound system. Turn it up as loud as the neighbors will tolerate or soundproof your theater to get it as loud as your ears can stand. Action movies rely on sound effects to make you feel as if you are a part of the action, so don't let that budget go to waste and fully wrap yourself in audio splendor. 

HIDDEN PROJECTOR TO MAKE THE MAGIC

So far, it's just been you enjoying a popular hero classic, if you have a friend or family member who is equally obsessed with the cape crusader, let them have some fun, too. Why not give them a Batman Day to remember as well? With the easy installation of an automated roll down projector screen, you could be making movie magic in your own home. Imagine the look on their face as you press a button and your regular living room transforms into a perfect hero worthy entertainment space. Hidden screens also have a dual benefit of allowing you to maximize space. Smaller homes can still have a home theater worth its salt, as having a screen hiding in your ceiling gives you more space.

INTEGRATED CONTROL

Every facet of a home theater on its own is grand, but if you link them all together something greater can be achieved. Tying ambiance, sound, and the display are a lot simpler than you imagined. Integrated control can mean that from the comfort of your own couch, you can close the blinds, turn the lights to perfection, roll down a hidden screen, and get the sounds going at the click of a button. Alfred is also a wonderful name for a remote controller, don't you think?

We all miss the theater, but there is no reason to dim the lights on fantasy.  Just like Batman, our home theater is the hero we deserve during these times. Enjoying a little night to ourselves can melt our troubles away and remind us of the joys in life. Whether big or small, your needs matter, and we want to help. If you live in the Houston, Texas area, contact us today. We may not wear capes, but we do want to serve our local community in any way we can.
