The home technology experience doesn’t truly begin until a project is complete.

The home technology experience doesn’t truly begin until a project is complete.

For many home technology installers, it’s easy to get stuck in a project-based mindset. Projects have a beginning (discovery, design, engineering); middle (procurement, staging, installation, programming); and end (calibration, training, optimization).

At Bravas, we believe that without the right technology, you can not build a truly beautiful and luxurious home. Yet, when we talk to many builders and homeowners and suggest this, they turn and run the other way. For many people “smart home” is an oxymoron like “act naturally” or “open secret.” For some, their experience with technology in their home is that it gets in the way of their day-to-day living. The promise, they say, is never paid off by the reality.

Can your mobile device Airplay to your TV?

So, you are watching a YouTube video, and it’s just brilliant. Everyone in the house should see something – but rather than just all gather around your iPad, is there a better way? The answer is, of course, yes, but only for some. If your TV is enabled for Airplay2 (meaning it’s probably not much more than a year old), you can stream from your Apple device straight to the TV. If it is older than that, you may need an Apple TV – but that’s for another blog. Older versions of AirPlay may be supported on some devices, but you need AirPlay2 for the whole experience.
