This shouldn’t be news to anyone, but your average home contains more “smart” devices than ever before. Nest thermostats may have brought the trend to the mainstream, but Alexa, HomeKit, Sonos, and others have taken that momentum and run with it.

Our media closet, which was a tangle of equipment and wires, was cleaned up and organized so we could actually know what piece of equipment did what! I highly recommend this group for any and all AV needs. Costs were not astronomical either!
