    Leave a Comment

    You have your location chosen, you’ve decided on your desired television display, now what? The next step in creating The Ultimate Man Cave is ensuring you have the perfect sound for your space.

     

    Sound systems are not “one size fits all.” You need a system set up that gives you the best sound for your particular space. That’s where Modern Systems comes in. Not only can we provide you with the perfect sound system, we can set it up in a way that utilizes the room’s full sound potential.

     

    If you have a larger space, surround sound may be your best option. With a 7.1 system, you will feel like the movies are coming alive around you. You can experience movies the way directors intended, listen to music as if you were in the venue and become emerged in games as if they were actually going on around you.
    In-wall and in-ceiling speakers keeps them out of view and allow surround sound in spaces that typically would not have much room allowance for multiple speakers.

     

     

    If your space is not very large and surround sound is not the best option, sound bars may be the best fit. A sound bar is a set of speakers that is mounted right below your flat screen that works best in small to medium sized rooms. With designs to work with all sizes, they provide much better sound than the tiny speakers built into your flat panel. Because flat panels are designed to be thin and sleek, there is not much room for decent speakers. Sure, it may look great, but with sub-par sound you cheat yourself and your guests out of what could be a wonderful cinematic experience. In order to have the Ultimate Man Cave, great sound becomes a vital necessity.

     

    Tune in for our next post where we will cover another important aspect of The Ultimate Man Cave, temperature and lighting control.

  2. How to Avoid False Alarms

    Leave a Comment

     

    If you have a home security system you may very well understand the pain of a false alarm. Many, if not all of us are guilty of accidentally setting off the security alarm–whether it be from opening a door or window while the security alarm is set, or by messing up the secret code when the monitoring station calls in. This common mishap often results in loud sirens that disturb neighbors or law enforcement showing up at the door.

     

    Here are a few tips to help avoid the nuissance of a false alarm:

     

    1. Modern Systems offers several ways to turn off your security system, in turn you have the ability to quickly react in the event of an alarm system being falsely triggered. You can use the wired or wireless keypad, smart phone, tablet, computer or remote control.

     

    2. Make sure everyone who uses the security alarm knows how to use it properly, especially if you are setting up access to someone to enter your home while you are away. Provide specific, detailed instructions on how to disable and reset your home security system. After installation, your Modern Systems sales representative will train you on how to properly work your home alarm system.

     

    3. Have us set up your home alarm system to call your mobile first in the event of an alarm and your home phone secondly. This way you will have a quicker response time in the even of a false alarm while you are away.

     

    4. Program your mobile phone with your service provider’s number and call them the second to accidentally trigger you home alarm. Memorize your PIN so it is readily available (never carry your PIN written down in your wallet or purse, if it is stolen the theif could enter your home and disable the alarm).

     

    5. Make sure to have your alarm system for the home service regularly, and make sure the battery is replaced when needed. Weak system batteries and faulty equiptment can cause a false alarm.

     

    6. Make sure all windows and doors are secured before turning on your burglar alarm.
