BluOS® is a premium multi-room music system developed by Lenbrook, owners of NAD Electronics and Bluesound, that seamlessly integrates with existing home automation systems using a home network and custom-built two-way drivers. With a music tool like BluOS, integrators and dealers can provide a solution for smarthome owners looking to access and listen to popular music streaming services—and local music libraries up to 24-bit/192kHz— on any BluOS Enabled stereo system or speakers.
With the ability to connect up to 64 zones of music, all supported by a dedicated team of experts via phone, live chat or email, BluOS is rapidly emerging as the number one choice for networked music. Currently the average smarthome uses seven connected devices that rely on a stable and secure network, which includes smart TVs, media streamers, mobile devices, and other household appliances. Networked music is the latest product on homeowner’s wish list, with the ability to control playback in different rooms using a single application for seamless room-to-room music.
“We’ve installed other products, and the nice thing about Bluesound is you don’t spend all day getting it on the network. In 10 – 15 minutes you are up and running,” said John Rein, co-owner of AV Therapy in New Hampshire. “Our entire store is built on the BluOS so anyone who comes in, to listen to anything, is handed an iPad and they are immediately using BluOS. I think the major difference between BluOS and other platforms is the quality you are getting.”
The open-source BluOS app, available as a driver for a growing list of home automation systems including Crestron® and Control4®, provides full-featured control of BluOS Enabled products from supported touch screens, remotes and key pads at blazing-fast speeds – without any skips or delays. Mobile devices can also be used for control, with the rich and intuitive interface of the iOS and Android apps. With the ability for homeowners to connect directly with the BluOS support team to troubleshoot issues after the install is complete, integrators can stay focused on their next job without worrying about on-call service.
BluOS is available in a wide line of award-winning audio products from Bluesound and NAD—CE Pro Best Award for the NAD CI 580 streamer—and is included as an upgrade option for all other BluOS ready products. With BluOS, integrators and homeowners alike have endless options for streaming, their home theatre room, hi-fi system or any other listening room.
