This is a custom home we recently finished with Lutron Homeworks lighting and Savant home automation. Great room doors controlled on Savant system to open entire house up to views of Los Angeles. Motorized lift from Auton in the master bedroom drops a 65" LED Samsung display from the ceiling. Theater features JVC Pro HD projection and Definitive Technology 7.1 surround sound. Nest thermostats. Shower TV's and speakers. 8 Camera security system.
New theater media room just completed with 5 Samsung TV and a 110" Da-Lite screen and JVC U.S.A. Projector. 5.2+4 Dolby Theater Atmos surround sound setup with Definitive Technology Speakers. 5 DIRECTVHD Receivers, Video Game Hook-Up and all controlled using Control4running on a Microsoft Surface Pro Tablet.
This was a recently completed project. This system featured Sonos audio integrated into a Control4 system. There were 10 video zones all operated on the Control4 system from a large centralized video switch. This distributed Time Warner Cable, DirecTV and AppleTV to all the video zones in the house. Lutron lighting and Q-Motion Shades were also integrated. A Cisco small business network was installed as the back bone for this system.
This is a spec house we just completed for a developer. Our standard smart home package includes 6 zones of in-ceiling audio, Control4 lighting control, thermostats control, a small roller rack with the house processor and amplifier and basic structured wiring all the way through for phone, data, satellite and cable.
We loved this project! Mid century house. Great care was taken in making sure all audio video elements matched the house style. The client had a vintage Jenson audio box that we had redone with new driver and amplifier built in, connected it to a Sonos box and it was an awesome addition to the living room that also sounded amazing!
We used the heritage style speaker from Klipsch which matched the wood in the living room. We use the super simple RTI SURFir remote that was fully functional but without fancy LED displays and color graphics. A turntable by Musichall was added in the den and can be played throughout the entire house.

For this Hollywood Hills project, BCG installed a 7.1 surround sound system that had already been pre-wired by the homeowners during their remodel a few years back. We featured speakers from Definitive Technology that blended seamlessly into the wall, and matching the trim of the recessed lighting fixtures.
This project also featured three additional zones of audio, with stereo summing speakers in the kitchen as well as the dining room. The outdoor area also featured surface mounted speakers from Definitive Technology. All the components were installed in a small custom rack system on casters, tucked away in the closet.

BCG got involved with this project when we met the contractor on the site after leaving another job of ours down the road. We then met with the clients and designed a fully integrated system for them. This project consisted of a centralized rack system that fed video and audio to four rooms with Samsung flat panel displays. The house audio was distributed using the Crestron Adagio system. The house featured six audio zones including a spectacular upper party deck with Niles rock speakers.
Featured Equipment: JVC 1080P Projector, Crestron Adagio 24-Zone Music System, Middle Atlantic Rack Products, Escient DVD Server, Crestron ST-1700C Color Touch Screens, Da-Lite Film Screen, Samsung and Sharp High Definition Displays, Crestron APAD Music Controller, Niles Loud Speakers, Panamax Power Conditioners, and Panasonic Phone System.
BCG Concepts was referred to this project in Calabasas from one of our previous clients. We equipped the house with a total of 15 flat panel televisions, a full theater complete with seven channel surround sound, and 24 zones of house audio. This entire system was powered by the best in Crestron processing and control.
This project also included an expansive outdoor audio system, including four tennis court speakers, two rock speakers by the pool, and two speakers in the cabana. A 50” plasma display was mounted over the outdoor fireplace and completed with universal remote control.
The centerpiece of the system was a wall of plasma monitors in the family room, with a 60” display in the center, and two 42” plasmas directly above. All three displays were controlled by a single Crestron touch screen remote, customized to include access to DirecTV, an Escient DVD server, and a Blu-Ray High Definition DVD player.
