Newly completed home in Toluca Lake, CA. The homeowner came to us just before closing escrow on a new home and wanted to create a total smart home, complete with a cinematic theater room.
The home now features Control4 total home automation, with 10" in-wall touch panels and a single streamlined interface to control everything from the Lutron smart lighting system, the front door intercom, garage doors, drive and pedestrian gates, surveillance cameras, TV and audio systems in each room, even the pool and spa.
Martin Logan Electrostat tower speakers frame the Family Room fireplace providing incredible sound for both music and audio from the Sony Master Series OLED TV. A whole-home video distribution system discretely organizes video sources in the equipment closet (4K Apple TVs, Blu-ray Player, Cable/Satellite TV boxes) to transmit to screens throughout the house.
For an even more immersive at-home movie night, this house also features a media room theater, with a Sonance Reference in-wall surround sound system and sound-cushioning acoustic panels, letting you get lost in the movie. A Sony 4K UHD video projector and acoustically transparent ultra high definition screen make sure no frame and no detail is missed. Smart lighting helps set the perfect atmosphere, sleek and comfortable theater seating from CinemaTech has room for everyone, and a Control4 touch panel controls everything with ease.

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.
Los Feliz - Residential Project
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.
