Historic Home Renovation Series: An Exceptional Quincy, Illinois, Historic Home Brings Designer Collaboration

This historic home renovation project in Quincy, Illinois, was a huge success due to great collaboration between the design team and Integration Controls.

Historic Home Renovation Series: An Exceptional Quincy, Illinois, Historic Home Brings Designer Collaboration

When good collaboration between designers, builders, and integrators happens on projects, the end results are exceptional, which means ecstatic homeowners. That was the case for this 100+year-old home in Quincy, Illinois. The homeowners wanted to feature every modern convenience, including smart home technology, while still honoring the home’s heritage and history. Quincy has a rich history, with an array of historic homes that date back from before the Civil War—some as early as 1830! Preservation has been important for many of these homes, but yet there is still a need and a place for smart home technology.

So Much More than Just a Piece of Paper...

So Much More than Just a Piece of Paper...

Every industry has its share of certifications. In our industry, we have them for best of class installation, building networks, designing acoustically-accurate rooms and home theaters, and more. While these certifications typically stay with an individual, until recently, there hasn't been a certification for an entire company.

Enter the Home Technology Association, or HTA.

This Home Technology Association certification is no quick or easy thing to attain. It's arduous. It involves a deep dive into design practices, implementation, insurance, service policies, employment manuals, and overall -- how business is conducted. In fact, HTA-certified home technology professionals have a seal of approval that is in many ways much more significant than a Better Business Bureau "A+" rating -- although that's important too. The Home Technology Association fact checks every response and piece of information a prospective dealer submits when seeking certification, so that when a business carries that designation, you can be sure it's well-deserved and hard-earned.
