We all need complementary services to our core AV business: networking, electrical, design, programming, etc. There are several ways this can be accomplished.

The other evening, as I was tip-toeing on top of a chair from our dining room, using a paper clip and the smallest screwdriver I could find trying to pry loose the grille of an older in-ceiling speaker I wanted to replace without totally destroying the grille or falling off the chair, I realized just how far architectural audio speaker technology had come.

There are lights and there are speakers and now there is a light that is a speaker. This actually isn’t the first time we’ve seen a product like this, however this system is made for the “everyman” (or woman). There is no programming to do and no wire runs. What could be simpler then that?

My wife and I went to Disney World this past weekend, and I couldn’t believe the level of quality in everything we experienced, from the AV to the service in general. Not once was I let down. And it struck me that we simply can’t let our clients down when it comes to customer service.

I’m not going to call myself “rich” by any means, but I will freely tell you that I hate watching movies at other people’s homes. (TV I can tolerate. Usually.) Invite me over for dinner and conversation. Invite me over to play Axis and Allies or Settlers of Catan. Invite me over to just sit around and discuss Salinger or the world of Divergent over a hard-to-find craft beer. Any of those things. But don’t ask me to see the new DVD you just rented at Redbox.

I live mere minutes from work, as in 1.65 miles. This doesn’t give me a chance to listen to much radio, and yet I find myself changing the radio station multiple times during my short commute. If I’m planning to be in the car for any length of time I connect my iPhone to listen to a podcast or play music via the Bluetooth in my car.

Wall Street banks will spend millions of dollars to improve transaction speeds by milliseconds. Industrial manufacturers (think auto, electronics, heavy equipment) spend millions and invest thousands of man-hours to improve productivity and reduce waste by a fraction of a percent. As an industry are we putting forth enough effort and thought into improving the speed and reducing the waste on our installs?

One of the big announcements at CEDIA EXPO this year was that Nest finally opening up its API for third-party integration, starting with Control4. Before the show, there was a lot of resentment and anger toward Nest for creating a product that was so cool, so cutting edge, so popular and Apple-like, and yet wouldn’t interface with all of the systems that we install. (I might have been guilty of piling some of this on as well..)

It takes about a full week to decompress from the CEDIA show. After spending three solid days wandering aisles under the uncompromising glare of arc sodium overhead lighting, and having your body bombarded with enough Wi-Fi waves to make David Banner squirm, you come home so overloaded with the sights and sounds of EXPO that it takes a bit of time to just… (deep breath)… sit back and process it all.

I recently learned about another amazingly ambitious concept from industry friend Greg Margolis, president of HomeTronics, in Dallas, who told me that he’d inked a deal with Neiman Marcus to have a HomeTronics-designed outdoor entertainment package features as one of eight “fantasy gifts” in the high-end retailer’s legendary Christmas Book for 2013.
