Take a peak inside Osgood’s very own smart house.
We all know how mornings are in most homes. Between getting the kids ready for school in time to catch the bus, letting the dogs out and leaving early enough to get yourself to work… things can get hectic. To top that off, you have to make sure all the lights are off, the garage door is shut and all other things are taken care of. With such busy days, all we are looking for is a little convenience to lessen the headaches. Custom Cinema and Sound offers a Savant System which makes life somewhat easier by allowing you to control all home electronics easily from your Apple IPad, IPhone or IPod touch.

He took us through each of the features that come with this accommodating, user-friendly and time-saving program that is suitable for any home or business. He basically will come in and give you your own home audio 101. He is also just a phone call away if you forget the 200 different things you can do with this system.
