If you have young children or teenagers, or if you and your partner have different tastes in music, rooms can be individualised with their own music and video controls. Incorporate audio home automation features whereby when a light is turned on in a room, music starts to play. By customising a multi-room system in your home, you can give each person access to their own music and movies/TV without affecting everyone else. Easy to use keypads or a universal remote for smart control - Keypads mounted discreetly on the wall or a wireless universal remote can be used to easily manage your multi-room AV. New technology is enabling touchscreen devices like your i-pad and i-phone can be used to find and play music and videos stored elsewhere in the house.
Create a gaming room - With the introduction of interactive consoles like Wii, and internet access enabling gaming online like with X-Box Live, it makes sense to create a gaming room! A gaming room can be a dedicated room set up like a gaming parlour, or it can be integrated into a room that is also used for other purposes.
