What is Whole-Home Audio

A whole-home audio system, often referred to as "whole-house audio," is an advanced home audio solution designed to deliver music or sound to multiple rooms in a house. Unlike traditional home sound systems focused on a single space, a whole-home audio system integrates various components, such as speakers, amplifiers, and controls, allowing for seamless audio streaming throughout the entire home. This means you can play your favorite tunes in the living room while someone else listens to a podcast in the bedroom, all managed through a centralized home audio system. With a rich history, these systems have become more sophisticated with technological advances, enabling homeowners to control the volume, source, and zones of their audio preferences with ease. Whether you're throwing a party or simply relaxing after a long day, a whole-home audio system enhances the experience, filling every corner of your home with high-quality sound.

What Can Whole-Home Audio Do?

A whole-home audio system can transform your home and elevate the function of your living spaces. Let's dive into some examples of things a whole-home audio system can do.

Whole-Home Audio Systems Let You Take Your Music with You

There’s nothing like coming home after a longer than expected day at work and heading out to the backyard with a cold drink and your Bluetooth speaker, relaxing as you listen to your favorite playlist. Now imagine the music isn’t coming from that one speaker but from numerous landscape speakers peeking from your gardens or masquerading as rocks and garden décor. Inside, music dances from in-wall and in-ceiling speakers that hide in plain sight.

In this scenario, the music fills the air, transporting you to a distant island or mountain range, or to a classical orchestra at the historic Miller Symphony Hall. This is accomplished with a whole-home audio system installed in your Saucon Valley, PA, home. Read on to learn how our certified technicians at Automated Lifestyles create this transformative experience.

Music That Follows You

With strategically placed speakers, you can take your streaming music, audiobooks, and podcasts with you. You might be enjoying your latest audiobook chapter while preparing breakfast in the kitchen, and then stroll out into the yard for some gardening and never miss a sentence.

Combine your video and whole-home audio, and you can be watching the big game one minute and then head out to turn the steaks on the grill and never miss a play.

To Each Their Own

Of course, not every family member wants to hear the same sound reverberating through their bedroom, office, and media room simultaneously. One of the kids may want to listen to their favorite podcast in the kitchen while your partner tunes in to a Spotify playlist. Our certified technicians at Automated Lifestyles can make that happen for you by installing multiple receivers and amplifiers and setting up listening zones and preferences for each area of the house, all on the same whole-home audio system.

The best news is that, unlike the massive equipment once used to create high-end audio sounds, today’s equipment is compact and tucked away in one location. In-wall and in-ceiling speakers can also be hidden from view without sacrificing sound quality.

Ease of Living with Smart Home Integration

At Automated Lifestyles, we partner with the leading brands in sound and home automation. Two of these audio brands are Klipsch, a pioneer in high-fidelity audio, and Sonos, the industry leader in wireless technology and surround sound. With expertly placed speakers, the music seems to fill the air and immerses you in sound, whether in the kitchen, office, on the patio, or in your home theater.

Combining your whole-home audio with your smart home system brings unrivaled ease of living. For example, we can program the system to gently wake you in the morning with one of your favorite songs as the motorized shades rise to allow in natural sunlight and your interior lights begin to brighten.

In addition to pre-set schedules, you can use your smartphone or tablet to easily control what’s playing, where it’s playing, and the volume it’s playing at with just one touch. Once you experience whole-home audio, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it. It truly is a transformational experience.
