Here at Pacific Audio and Communications, we’re beyond proud to announce that a full automation project we brought to life for a Napa Valley winery has received the CEDIA award for “Best Innovative System or Solution.” Our goal for this installation was to ensure that every guest who visits the Del Dotto Winery and Vineyard will feel the detailed and luxurious atmosphere of the space, while now being able to benefit from the new smart features and solutions.




From integrated security and climate control to smart lighting and sound system installations, we brought every technology together under one centralized system – making it easy for employees to manage the place and to have it set for every guest and patron in every location.




We’ve brought these smart solutions to residences and buildings in Maui, HI and surrounding areas, and now all the way to the Napa Valley. Keep reading below to see how we incorporated these features into this full automation installation.

Inside, tasting rooms, kitchens, touring caves, and event or dining rooms had fixtures put into place as well.

Want to Implement Tunable Fixtures into Your Residential Lighting Design?




Pacific Audio & Communications Is Well-Equipped to Help. Here’s How.




If you’re an architect working in the Kauai, HI, area, you know that today’s client has changing needs and sometimes an extensive list of demands. The modern customer consumes an influx of media every day, and chances are, they’ve heard of tunable lighting and its various perks.




Studies show that it offers significant benefits for a homeowner’s health, both physical and mental. It’s been cited to improve sleep, help people wind down after work and increase daytime productivity – even work performance.

Few would argue that restful sleep, productive days and a positive mindset are just a luxury, so you might not want to miss this opportunity to provide these residential lighting design features for your clients.




No matter what you call it, your homeowners are most likely looking for lighting that suits their design tastes and syncs effortlessly with the rest of their homes. By partnering with Pacific Audio & Communications, you’ll be just the resource valuable clients need. Keep reading below to see where we can bridge the gap!

Why Tunable Lighting?




Our bodies were designed to rise and sleep according to a natural pattern determined by the sun.

This lower-energy lighting produces more melatonin, giving us a relaxed, sleepy feeling that encourages mellow evenings and better sleep.

Lighting Control





Lutron lighting control systems offer many aesthetic and convenience benefits.

You can also simplify your daily routines with automated schedules. Your lights will gradually get brighter in the morning when it’s time to wake up and then slowly dim in the evening when it’s time for bed. Finally, you can design lighting scenes for different occasions, using dimmers to create striking new combinations of color and shadow.
