What You Need To Know About Furniture for AV Storage and Wire Management

What You Need To Know About Furniture for AV Storage and Wire Management

Technologies for today’s homes and offices are sleek, contemporary and elegant. Some elements, such as touch panels, custom-framed LED displays and speakers that look as incredible as they sound, are meant to be seen. But then there’s the behind-the-scenes components; the receivers, amplifiers, switchers…all the things with the blinking lights and shiny knobs that you may choose to either showcase or hide away. Either way, they all live somewhere and that somewhere has specific requirements.

How to Optimize Your Enjoyment of Your Home’s Technology Systems

Feature-Rich and Trouble Free!

We’ve recently talked about getting together to assess your home’s technology systems (It’s time for a “Tech-Up!”). It’s always a good idea to make sure you’re abreast of the latest technologies available and how to implement new devices now or in the near future. The other key to satisfaction with your technology systems is ensuring their technical health. Simple things, such as cleaning components in the equipment rack, go a long way in preventing equipment from overheating. And then there’s the not-so-fun stuff like changing the batteries in the smoke detectors of your 10’ ceilings. Part 2 of our annual “Tech-Up” addresses the advantages in having a preventative maintenance plan that would include a visit from one of our technicians.

Time for a Tech-up!

Time for a Tech-up!

The transition to fall brings many changes. The Lions taking the field, the changing of our stunning Michigan leaves, the onslaught of pumpkin-flavored everythings and the slew of marketing messages stuffed into your bills suggesting it’s time to review your policies!  Just like your homeowner’s policy, auto coverage and health insurance are affected by the change in seasons and life stages, your home’s technology systems may benefit from an annual assessment too.
