What a VIEW!!

This has been a fun project.  First of all, the location is beautiful.  More importantly, the client has been fantastic and has asked us to preform some very interesting chores.  Of course we did a Rotel, Bowers & Wilkins music system with a Sumiko ProJect turntable for the main room.

Rotel Integrated amp with Bowers & Wilkins bookshelf speakers , ASW-608 sub and a ProJect turntable.

We have installed a complete Control 4 system along with a VidaBox hard drive music storage system and a Music Bridge for streaming music indoors and out.  In the ceiling of the covered patio area we installed B&W in-ceiling speakers which are also controlled by the Control 4 automation system.

B&W in-ceiling speakers are very near invisible, but sound magical!

Here is a couple of pictures of the irrigation system which is all controlled via the Control 4 automation system.  Our client can not only control the sprinklers but view the water levels in the tanks as well.

We also control lighting on this property. Interior, exterior and specialty art lighting.

It is a spectacular home and a pleasure to work on.

Beautiful room full of music.

And what a view.


Aaron needs our help!

Many of you know our friend and co-worker Aaron Benson.  Over the past 25 years he has visited many of your homes in his capacity as one of our Senior Technicians. He has kept us secure, made our music and video easier to use, automated our homes and provided similar services to many of our commercial clients. He has done this with caring skill, a great deal of experience and his wry humor.


Aaron now needs our help.  As some of you may already know Aaron has been battling a liver disorder through all these years and now it has reached the point of requiring a liver transplant.

Aaron is now on a leave of absence as he travels to New Orleans to get in line to receive that liver transplant.  This process is arduous and not without risk.  It is also costly.

The recovery is lengthy and must be done in New Orleans for several months and then at home with his wife and 3 young daughters.

We have no real idea when Aaron will be back to work and earning money again, but we know it is months, not weeks.  Below you will find a link to a “GOFUNDME” page we have set up on his behalf. Additionally, he has provided us with a link to follow his progress as he goes through this arduous process. You can also send comments to him as well as your best wishes; this is something I know he will appreciate and look forward to.

One more thing, there is link to our “SALE” page on our website.  There you will find some great deals and Paradigm will donate 10% of all of those sales through the end of September, to Aaron.

His bills are mounting and he needs all of our help. Any small donation or gesture of support would be appreciated by Aaron, his family and his Paradigm family.

Our best wishes to Aaron and his family. And a great deal of gratitude to you, our valued family of clients.

Beam/Electrolux Alliance Update!

BEAM Alliance central vacuum systems have been intuitively designed with the consumer in mind, and are our most powerful central vacuum systems with 30% more cleaning performance than BEAM Serenity. The exclusive BEAM Alliance Interface allows the power unit and hose handle to communicate with each other, giving you more control of your central vacuum system.

Paradigm Integration is proud to represent this innovative, premium Central Vacuum System.  Quiet, powerful,  easy to operate and full of unique features.

* Alliance offers 3 Smart Screen Technology levels, Advanced, Intelligent and Simple, so you know that information is flowing between the hose handle and the power unit.

* Fingertip controls allow you to easily adjust the amount of suction and turn the brushroll and the power switch on/off at the touch of a button.

*  Quick Clean Valve opens easily with one touch. It makes it easy to clean in and around your garage or wherever your power unit is located. This eliminates the need for an additional valve.

*  Press And Release Bucket allows you to easily press any two opposite points on the bucket ring and pull down to release the bucket for easy emptying. Simply lift the bucket back into place for a secure connection.

* Self Cleaning with the BEAM GORE technology filters 98%  of particles down to .03 microns while it protects and prolongs the motor life. No need to ever purchase or replace a filter bag!

HEPA Exhaust Filtration Standard on Alliance 700TC, HEPA Exhaust Filtration captures 99.97% of particles down to 0.3 microns and provides the highest level of protection from dust mites, pollen and pet dander.

3 in 1 Cleaning Tool is stored conveniently on the under side of the telescopic wand. It transforms easily from a dusting brush to a crevice tool to a fabric tool.

Here are just a few good reasons to consider a Central Vacuum System for your home:

Lightweight Control–A lightweight hose and ergonomic tools let you move easily from task to task, level to level, floor to ceiling, and up stairs, without getting a sweaty workout from dragging around a heavy portable vacuum.The average portable vacuum weighs 15 lbs while a BEAM hose & handle is only 7 lbs. 

The Quiet Way To Clean–With the motor located away from the living area, the quiet hush of airflow is all you’ll hear. Vacuum whenever you want without disturbing anyone’s activities or sleep.

Nothing To Sneeze At–Central vacuum systems often are recommended by allergists for removing pollutants from the home. Research has revealed that using a central vacuum system can improve indoor air quality and significantly reduce allergy symptoms.

Don’t Get Left In The Dust

*Unlike conventional vacuums that can recirculate dusty air, a BEAM central vacuum system removes 100% of contacted dirt, dust, mites, pollen, animal dander and other allergens from the home.

*No need to lift heavy vacuums, trip over cords or drag a portable canister around furniture causing damage. There’s only a lightweight hose that gets in all the hard to reach places — even under furniture!

*A larger motor allows BEAM central vacuums provide up to 50% more suction power than a portable vacuum.

*Less hassle. BEAM central vacuums have a self-cleaning filter that never needs to be replaced and a large capacity dirt bucket that only needs to be emptied about twice a year. Portable vacuums have filters that need to be replaced and bags that need to be emptied regularly.

Here’s a great video showcasing many new automation/smart home items & concepts from Control 4.

Here is the tale of a family buying a beautiful home only to learn the wiring infrastructure was a misguided DIY job. Many times it is had to judge the quality of the wiring in a home and so in this instance it’s PARADIGM TO THE RESCUE!!

We re-installed the better part of this home. Security, surveillance, distributed audio and video, lighting and Home Theater.  We added a new Control 4 system with multi channel amps, streaming audio and 7 inch touchscreens to control everything.

Here are a few photos:IT-Before-2



Above is the IT / Security enclosure before.


Here is what it looks likes now that we have gotten in and straightened it out.  Organized, more reliable and easier to service and add on to.


One of the  TV location ……not so good….We cleaned it up to a single wire.


The equipment rack in the Master bedroom room before.


Here it is after.  Full of technology. Control 4, Sony and more.


Here is the back of the full rack.  Neatly run wires all organized for ease of upgrade and service.


Now let’s make it a family room!


Now it’s a family room full of entertainment for the family!
