A Leap in Connectivity with Wi-Fi 7

Wi-Fi 7 is here, and it's changing the future of connectivity. With the Wi-Fi Alliance beginning to certify Wi-Fi 7 devices, we're entering a new era of ultra-fast, reliable, secure connectivity. While Wi-Fi 6 is still the norm, having an eye on future networking possibilities ensures all of our commercial and residential projects are designed to scale for future growth and functionality.

OliverIQ Brings Smart Home Functionality to Everyone

As a Control4 dealer, we have to admit we were surprised but happy to hear about OliverIQ's debut. This Smart Home as a Service (SHaaS) platform offers a more affordable, comprehensive solution for all your popular smart home devices, bringing them under the management of one app instead of 10-20. Its subscription model with unlimited support and user-friendly app makes managing a smart home more accessible than ever.

Samsung Brought Their A-Game!

Though Samsung’s AI companion, Ballie, received major upgrades, the new range of 4K and 8K TVs piqued our interest most! These stunning screens are equipped with proprietary image processing technologies and deliver unparalleled picture quality. Features like Active Voice Amplifier Pro for better accessibility and a more transparent and sustainable environmental strategy round out the TV updates. This is great for companies wanting to improve meeting spaces with better video or reduce their carbon footprint.


Samsung's integration with Tesla products via its SmartThings Energy service is a significant development in energy management. It allows for a more cohesive and efficient control of your home's energy consumption, so stay tuned for updates on that front.


And we can’t forget the new Bespoke 4-Door Flex Refrigerator with AI Family Hub+! Yes, even your fridge can make your life more convenient, bringing the concept of a smart kitchen to life. Its ability to recognize and manage inventory saves time and makes your daily routines more efficient.
