To dispel a common misconception, there is a difference between home automation and home integration. Integration of a home just implies that different devices in the home are connected and can communicate with one another. Home automation occurs with programming of the devices to react to different cues and automatically enact things in the home. Examples could include: When you're home senses you are approaching it unlocks the doors, opens the garage door, adjusts thermostats, opens curtains and shades, and activates a certain lighting scene. When you're leaving it locks the doors, adjusts the thermostat, closes blinds and curtains, and arms your security system.

It’s a collaborative environment and "think-tank" situation room where C.E.O.’s, stakeholders, and team members alike, both local and off-site, participate in the key-making decisions that steer the company in the desired direction. To foster an environment where ideas can flourish, we create a versatile and reliable audio and visual solution that suits your unique needs and space.

fiber opticsFiber Optic Cabling is typically used for backbone connections between local network equipment. It is the preferred choice for high quality and reliable communications. Fiber Optic Cabling offers increased bandwidth over other forms of cable transmission types. The cable itself is very lightweight and data can be transmitted with very low attenuation (signal loss) over many miles. Typically, it is the most economical solution when managing large amounts of data over long distances. Exposed non-metallic cables are not prone to lightning strikes. The cable does not carry an electrical current so there are is no risk of short circuits generating a spark which may ignite explosive gases. These intrinsically safe characteristics have led to the widespread use of fiber optic cabling in hazardous environments such as chemical companies, fuel refineries, and industrial settings.

The recent upward trend in copper prices has made fiber optics a cost effective solution for more and more applications.

wiresStructured cabling is an essential part of every network infrastructure. Structured cable typically includes your data, voice and video networks. Your business operates on it every single day. Your accounting and financial transactions are processed on it. Telephone interaction with customers are traveling on this network. Video to ensure your employees’ safety is moving on this network. Underestimating the needs of your infrastructure can be a serious and costly mistake.

CAMERA SYSTEMS

Camera Security Systems have drastically changed in the past several years. Traditional analog video is being replaced by IP based cameras and video solutions. The benefits of networked video security systems include off site video storage, instant notifications of events/alarms, remote viewing, live monitoring, and smart phone control. AV Design Consultants have been designing and providing award winning installation of security camera systems in Arkansas for over 7 years. The most popular applications for video surveillance in businesses have typically been property protection and staff monitoring. Now new technology has entered the mix allowing for more advanced functionality from your video security camera system.

Megapixel cameras offer a level of forensic detail not possible just a few years ago. License Plate Recognition is now affordable and reliable enough to be deployed at any commercial property requiring vehicle identification. Regardless of the surrounding weather conditions, thermal cameras deliver advanced perimeter protection and foolproof imagery.

Security cameras are now regularly tied into access control systems to allow for video verification of persons entering or leaving the premises. Remote viewing and playback as well as other advanced feature set for surveillance systems can be controlled by a mobile device such as an iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry and other mobile devices. Let the team at AV Design Consultants show you how to take advantage of this new technology in a way that will most benefit your business.

FIRE & SECURITY SYSTEMS

Fire alarm and Security Systems are installed so occupants are notified that an emergency is taking place in their building. These stand-alone systems are only concerned with notifying the occupants inside the building. Monitoring allows those systems to communicate and transmit building alarm signals offsite to the appropriate authorities. What most building owners do not know is that the fire prevention code mandates building sprinkler systems to be supervised by the building alarm system, and that alarm system is required to be monitored. When the fire alarm/security system detects an fire, break-in, or press of a panic button, it immediately sends a signal to the off-site central station. Within seconds, this information along with information about you and your business is available on computer displays that are monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by our operators. These highly trained professionals will notify the police, fire department, or ambulance of the alarm at your address. A building that utilizes monitoring has the advantage of detecting emergency situations in that crucial early stage that could reduce potential property or life loss. Our security solutions include:
  • Intrusion detection: Instantly recognizes and sends notification of unauthorized access to a facility, no matter how that access is gained;
  • Motion detection: Offers maximum protection by detecting even the slightest movements inside or outside a protected facility;
  • Glass break detection: Detects and automatically notifies clients when window or door glass is broken;
  • Perimeter protection: Detects and deters intruders before they can gain unauthorized entry to a facility;
  • Multi-area arming: Enables a client to safeguard specific areas in a facility, multiple areas, or the complete facility.

WE WORK WITH YOU

AV Design Consultants works with the on-site facilities manager to provide a complete Testing and Inspection (T&I) of a building. Most often we find that stand alone systems get neglected and are not always tested monthly, bimonthly, or even annually. Fire alarms, cameras, access control, security, paging and intercoms, battery backups, and other devices must be tested on a regular basis. Many of these systems are mandated by state law to be tested. We make this process easy by being well versed in each system and holding the proper licensing. Our on-site technicians make this an easy process while keeping your building safe and compliant with state and local codes. Through the use of online reporting we are able to provide our clients with an outline of their entire facility keeping it simple and easy to understand Through preventative maintenance our T&I services keep buildings safe and save cost by addressing issues prior to an alarm event.

Housewide Audio/Video

A House-Wide Audio System is the easiest way to enjoy music throughout your home. Designed for simplicity, it’s more convenient to use than any stereo system you’ve ever owned. Think about coming home, pressing a button and music fills the air. What will it be? Classical for relaxation after a stressful day; Rock to get the blood flowing for a workout; or how about a little Pandora or Spotify while cooking dinner? With our system, you’re always close to music. Football on the TV in the Great Room, HGTV in the Master Suite, MSNBC in the Office, and the latest blockbuster in the Media Room; all at the same time. A House-Wide Video System from AV Design Consultants lets you watch any of your video sources in any room of your home, at your leisure. With Blu-ray, cable and satellite set-top boxes, and streaming devices like Apple TV, a home can be filled with source components. With a properly designed and installed House-Wide Video System, you could enjoy all of these sources without having to see them, and be able to route any source to any room on demand.
 

Simplified Living

Rain in the forecast? Irrigation schedule adapts...

Forget to turn off the game room lights? Do it from your phone...

Kids having a party? Check your cameras while at dinner...

Having a Simplified Living system with the know how to make your life easier.

Note: if we use this image, maybe put in a quick note about what the thing on the footstool is. Basically, why are we showing this image? »

Your home is just that - yours. It should allow you to live the way you want to. A Simplified Living system from AV Design Consultants, makes even the most mundane of tasks enjoyable. Take waking up for example -

With a Simplified Living system, at 6AM your curtains slowly open to let the morning sun in, the lights in your bathroom fade up as you get out of bed, the local news comes thru the in-ceiling speakers as you enter the shower. At 8AM the kitchen speakers and TV turn on to Bloomberg TV so that as you pour your coffee you are kept up to speed on the market. As you grab your coat and head out the door, one press of the keypad by the door lets your house know that you are leaving. Everything in your home turns off and awaits your return.

How do you wake up?
