No Matter Which Way You Go, You’ll Be on the Right Path

Many people approach the idea of making their home "smart" differently. For years, our industry thrived on simplifying the control of AV equipment. That may not be the first thing you think of these days when it comes to smart tech, but it is still very much integral to the smart home experience. For others, it might be automated lighting and climate control, as those are also uber-popular do-it-yourself smart home products.

Still, others might place more importance on home security, as smart sensors, cameras, and locks offer more ways to keep an eye on the homestead and maintain safety. And there’s more, like automated pool equipment, irrigation systems, and other devices you can turn on or off or control their behavior.

The one thing you want to do when starting with smart home technology is to choose a system that can grow with you and accommodate a wide range of devices and skills to make home control effortless. For many Buckhead, GA homes, the right system that ticks all the boxes is Control4. Keep reading to learn why Control4 is the centerpiece of your smart home, no matter which feature is the most important to you.

GHT Group is all about home technology, with a fast-growing business in the commercial sector as well. We want to be the premier technology partner for residences and companies in Johns Creek and across the metro Atlanta area. And we think, to paraphrase the Carly Simon song, that nobody does it better in Georgia. Whether you are looking for the best brands in audio and video, the top solutions in smart home automation, the latest in home security, and most important of all – top-flight service – GHT Group does it all.

Keep reading for three ways GHT Group is a different smart home company, and why you should turn to us for your technology solutions.

Smart Home Companies Need to Keep Pace with the Industry

Just recently, we underwent a name change and rebranding from Georgia Home Theater to GHT Group. The new name reflects a widened focus and expansion of the company’s scope that’s been underway for a long time, and having “home theater” in our name did not accurately portray everything that we were doing in home technology.

Our broad footprint across audiovisual and home technologies also led us to becoming part of HTSA. HTSA stands for Home Technology Specialists of America, and our membership in the organization also reflects the evolution from Georgia Home Theater to GHT Group.

What is HTSA, and why is it important that GHT Group become part of it? As a leading smart home company serving Buckhead, Atlanta, and beyond, it reflects our commitment to delivering the best home technology products, solutions, and service to our client.
