Technology has become an essential part of our lives. We depend on it for work, school, entertainment, and just about every other facet in our daily lives. Rightly so, this century has been referred to as the “age of technology.”
According to a 2015 study done by Pew Research Center on technology ownership, 68% of Americans have smartphones and 73% have a desktop or laptop computer. Televisions still remain the most popular, with an estimated 95.2% of homes having at least one TV with cable or internet connection.
As the majority of us own multiple devices, from flat screens to smartphones to security systems, we need them all to work together and work efficiently to avoid unnecessary headaches. It can be a challenge to make sure all of your technology runs smoothly, so we recommend hiring a professional audiovisual company that can integrate your technologies to work together and operate at their optimal level.
How do you decide which residential audiovisual company to choose? Here are four important things to look for:
Whether you are looking to build a home theater or install a whole house audio system, technology is a serious investment. You want to make sure you’re getting quality equipment that will be reliable and last.
Make sure you choose a residential AV professional who knows which brands are best and has connections with major equipment manufacturers. This knowledge will allow them to accurately assess your needs and be able to offer sound advice on what AV solutions would be best for your home.
Systems integration is vital to creating a seamless experience both for your home. You want to hire a company that can find the technology you need and integrate all of your equipment so that it works together.
As smart technology becomes more and more essential to running a home, it’s important to make sure all of your gadgets are user-friendly and efficient so that they don’t disrupt your daily tasks.
Even the best technology inevitably has hiccups and glitches sometimes. Another important aspect of choosing an audiovisual professional is making sure you’re working with a company that is easy to communicate with and provides great technical support.
You’ll want to talk with an experienced technician who can analyze a problem and quickly find a solution. If you need a part replaced, you don’t want to have to wait days because that can be a major headache. Don’t underestimate the importance of quick response time. In today’s world, we don’t have time to slow down.
Lastly, you want to make sure you find an AV company that can provide end-to-end service, meaning they can provide professional help from the beginning stages of planning out what technology you need, to the very end of installation and support. It becomes a huge inconvenience if you have to find one company to assess your needs, another company to order your equipment, and a third to install it all properly.
