Get Enterprise-Grade Wi-Fi Network Performance in Your Home

A woman and two children are looking at an iPad that works over home Wi-Fi.

Today’s Modern Homes Require a Higher Level of Network

It's no secret that homes have more and more connected devices every year. Consider all the smartphones, computers, scanners, and tablets you may use in your home for school and work. Then think about other devices like smart speakers, thermostat, and connected appliances. It's clear that home Wi-Fi networks are being pushed to their limits.

But the strains on home networks go beyond the number of devices. Video in functions like Zoom conferencing, remote classes, and 4K streaming on Netflix and Youtube requires large amounts of bandwidth. If your family uses many of these things simultaneously, you need a network that can keep up. 

The solution for busy, sophisticated smart homes in Denver, CO, lies in a higher-grade network solution, unlike the consumer solutions you get from your internet provider or Amazon and big-box stores. Read on to learn more about improving your home network with commercial-grade solutions.

Motorized Shades Offer Elegance and Effortless Control

Let Your Smart Home Manage Your Window Coverings

The interplay of natural light in a room draws you in, intrigued by the sunlight that diminishes the separation between our interior world and the world of nature that lies beyond our walls. As the architect, Richard Meyer said, “Architecture which enters into a symbiosis with light does not merely create form in light, by day and at night, but allows light to become form.” 

In addition to creating an alluring ambiance and enhancing the materials and colors it touches, there is an undeniable connection between our emotions and the level of natural light in our homes. Natural light enhances vitality, boosts moods, reduces stress, and improves sleep.

So, why do we find many homes in Denver, CO, with the shades drawn? The answer lies in the UV rays that can cause permanent discoloration and sun damage to our home's interiors and the direct sun's glare that makes it difficult to see computer screens and TVs. We lower the shades when sunlight enters our homes, and there they remain throughout the day, reducing the beauty and benefits of the sun.

Motorized shades change that.

Take a Journey into Your Favorite Movies with a Professional Installation 

In The Fabelmans, Mitzi Fabelman—a stand-in for Steven Spielberg's mother in this semi-auto-biopic—tells her son, "Movies are dreams that you never forget."

Movies work based on a suspension of belief needed to reach this dreamlike state. Whether you're watching an ultra-realistic period piece or an over-the-top space odyssey, your home theater system needs to set the right environment.

Immerse Yourself in Another World with a Custom Home Theater Design

Creating One-of-a-Kind Home Cinemas

Movies offer much more than entertainment. They inspire and take us on an emotional journey, from sadness to longing, anticipation, and joy. Stanley Kubrick, one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, shared this about his films, “A film is—or should be—more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotions, the meaning, all that comes later.” 

Films have even been called the “seventh art,” along with architecture, sculpting, painting, and music. Like these art forms, they influence us in immeasurable ways, letting us walk in another’s shoes and feel what it’s like to live in a different time, be a different person, and influence change. 

A well-thought-out home theater design provides the space for this type of experience. Are you ready to enjoy the images and sound that transport and inspire you in your Vail, CO, home? Then keep reading below to learn more.

How to Create a Sanctuary with Lighting Automation

Enhance Every Occasion and Mood with Inspired Lighting

Light has long been used as a way to illuminate a path in the dark. Our ancestors created wooden torches with dried juniper wood, ivy, and pine resin and used this light to tell their stories, creating humanity's first art galleries and star maps in the deep recesses of ancient caves. 

Ancient Greeks used natural light and nature in their healing temples, recognizing renewed vigor and recuperation for those recovering from illnesses. While our lives have significantly changed, the power of light remains.

Relax and Leave the World Behind in Your Custom Home Theater

Let a Luxury Home Theater Company Transport You to Another Realm

Movies can challenge our perceptions of the world and our place in it, serving as a medium to express the fundamental aspects of human life, from love to the very concept of reality. The power of film lies in its unique realism, taking us into the minds and hearts of the characters until we become absorbed and lost in another world. 

Movies take us to places we may never see, such as high atop the Himalayas, deep within underground caves, and other worlds only dreamed of. The best movies make us forget we’re sitting in a theater, the sensory content so real and accurate that we suspend our disbelief and view what’s happening on screen as reality.

This type of realism requires an immersive cinematic experience—the all-encompassing sound and the lifelike images that occupy your field of vision. At Aurum, we’re committed to delivering this level of realism, a space where the best entertainment transcends time. As a home theater company with extensive experience designing and creating home theaters for the largest estates in Denver, CO, we create custom solutions that define the true cinematic experience.

Bring Beauty and Well-Being into Your Home with Daylight


Effortlessly Manage Sunlight and Privacy with Motorized Shades

Those who live in Vail, CO, experience some of the best views the world offers. Light filters through the windows for almost 250 days of the year bringing with it increasing feel-good serotonin levels, stimulating the production of vitamin D, and aligning visual and circadian systems that evolved with the dynamic shifts of daylight. 

Today, sunlight plays a critical role for designers, an element like no other. Like lighting design on a set, it affects one's perception and influences moods, changing the emotional quality of a room. In fact, one of the best ways to assess good architecture is by evaluating how natural light is managed throughout the space. As Louis Kahn, the highly influential modernist architecture, said, "We are born of light. The seasons are felt throughout light. We only know the world as it is evoked by light.”

Are you ready to experience effortless management of sunlight? Read on to discover how motorized shades bring beauty, vitality, warmth, and daylight into your home.

Live a Life of Luxury in a Smart Home

A professionally designed home theater.

Professional AV Integrators Can Bring a True Theater Experience to Your Home

A home theater is more than a TV hooked up to a couple of speakers. But you likely know that already! In addition, just because you have a dedicated space with theater seats, a large-screen display, and surround sound, that doesn’t mean your theater is the best it could be. 

Instead, the theater space at your home in Denver, CO should deliver an astounding cinematic watching experience that movie theaters provide. In order to create a true theater experience, you’ll need to partner with a professional home theater company like Aurum.

Motorized Shades Offer Effortless Control of Daylight


Bring Beauty and Elegance to Your Home with Motorized Window Coverings

Window coverings can bring incredible beauty and functionality to our homes, significantly changing how a room looks and feels. They can add a touch of elegance, a modernistic flair, or a whisp of sheer material designed to pay homage to the sun. 

They protect our fine art and furnishings from direct UV rays that fade hardwood floors, rugs, art, and photographs. They let the beauty of diffuse sunlight in, while providing privacy when evening falls. These window coverings play a significant role in our daily lives, yet we often take them for granted. Raising and lowering them throughout the day is more trouble than benefit, leaving many stationary. 

That’s where motorized shades come in. These shades offer the same beauty and elegance along with automated and one-touch control. Tap an icon on a touchscreen and lower every shade in your home or in just one room. Tell the shades to lower by 50% in the living room, and it's done. Wake to shades that automatically rise with the first rays of the sun. Motorized window coverings make the tedious fun and managing daylight effortless. 

Are you ready to create unrivaled ease of living while adding beauty and elegance to your Denver, CO, home? Let’s explore the many benefits motorized shades provide.
