McMurray, PA 2015 Dedicated Theater Proj.

Project Overview


Simply Automated was tasked with the design and build of this dedicated theater room in McMurray, PA.  Working with the builder, Ken from "Custom Homes" & Tom from Shanahan Electric, we were able to bring the clients vision to life.

This was an addition to an already fully automated Control4 project.  The challenge was integrating this room with rest of the home on the Control4 platform.  It took a good deal of retrofit wiring but at the end of the day it was a success!


The video in this room is a combination of Wolf Cinema and Screen Innovations.  The 7.1 system utilized Paradigm speakers and was processed by Marantz.  Thanks to Tom @ Shanahan Electric, his plan for LED ceiling accents gave us the ability to maximize its effect with our Control4 lighting control.  The seating riser allowed us to position two rows of seating for the client.  All in all, a fantastic representation of a dedicated home cinema room that didn't break the bank!
