Keeping Your Activity Secure
In this highly connected world we live in, much of what we do is tracked. No one is lurking in the shadows snapping pictures of us like in old detective shows, but it’s far easier than that. Your smartphone tracks your location continuously, and a variety of apps for which you grant access to your information knows where you go and where you’ve been.
Now, most of you already know that much of your activity is being watched. Your browsing history is used to target advertising. Your Facebook activity is a fountain of information that may understand more about you than you do. Google and Apple Maps know where you go, by car and on foot. Yet, there's a tradeoff we make for sharing all this information. We get some beneficial, dependable, and free services like navigation around Brookhaven and Atlanta and just about anywhere in the world (remember when navigation devices cost hundreds of dollars?) and a host of other free information services we use without a second thought.
What does that have to do with home automation? Plenty. Keep reading for more.
Take Advantage of the Best Screens and Sound in the House for Productivity and Engagement
We're all still making adjustments to our lifestyle with the ongoing pandemic. And while some schools and workplaces are back in operation, suffice it to say that everything is not back exactly the way it was before.
During this timeframe, we have leaned heavily on technology for work, education, entertainment, and even fitness. We’re not here to claim technology is a substitute for in-person interaction. Still, as a longtime home technology integrator, we are here to make it as easy and seamless as possible to enable you to do all that you want to accomplish.
While everyone is working on desktops, laptops, tablets, and Chromebooks, we think there's an opportunity to leverage existing AV setups in your home for more flexible and engaging work, learning, and socializing.

Strengthen Your Connection with Our Network Installation Services
With several school districts across Metro Atlanta area temporarily closing their doors due to a surge in COVID-19, families are transitioning to remote operations. Once again, adults are working from home, kids are learning from home, and families are continuing their enjoyment of streaming entertainment while they stay safe indoors.
Meanwhile, all of this streaming activity is straining your home’s bandwidth. Think of the data that you’re transmitting as an information highway. If too much information tries to move at once, your data runs into a sort of traffic jam. This is where a strong network comes in: Multiple networking zones and access points can unjam all the competing data coming into your network at one time. But the type of network you need right now requires some professional integration help to pull off, especially if you plan to scale up your smart home. We can help!
Get to Know Crestron’s New TSR-310 and HR-310 Remotes
Right now, many of us are hyper-focused on our home entertainment and automation systems since some of us aren’t venturing far beyond our property. Isn’t now the right time to optimize your automation and AV controls? Though hands-free control has grown more popular as we deal with the new coronavirus, sometimes nothing replaces the familiar control we get with a traditional remote control. Remote controls allow the tactile controls you’re used to, while backlighting features let you see how you’re navigating your remote, even if you’re watching in the dark.
Crestron released its TSR-310 and HR-310 remotes back in 2018, but Crestron home automation users enjoy their capabilities to this day. Click on our original blog post to learn more, and keep reading to learn some details about both remotes.
