A YORK based company is teaming up with a home entertainment specialist from the USA.

Wall of Sound, which is based in Holme on Spalding Moor, will work with US home automation firm Control4, to bring smart home technology to North Yorkshire.

The firms will unveil the 'Smart Home Experience' at the newly revamped Wall of Sound showroom, showing off systems that can be designed to bring any home in to a new era of home technology.

Ian Child, principal at Wall of Sound, said: "Upon entering our new showroom, visitors can interact hands-on with different aspects of the Control4 Smart Home. Our goal is for them to be inspired by and to envision similar experiences being incorporated into their own home or projects."

The new certified showroom gives Yorkshire homeowners, architects and designers the chance to experience a smart home in an experimental environment, with automated lighting, temperature control, multi room audio and more.

Bryce Judd, from Control4, said: "We are thrilled that Wall of Sound has opened a Control4 Certified Showroom just outside York. Our dealers are passionate about what they do, and they value being able to educate and guide their consumers to reach their ideal smart home installation experience from start to finish."
