Small Business Saturday...All Year Long

Shop local for gifts and experiences to be remembered, long after the holidays are over!

Small Business Saturday...All Year Long

Small Business Saturday is a retail event that occurs in November and was initially created (by American Express) to encourage consumers to shop locally, in person and online, at small businesses. It’s a great opportunity for small businesses to increase sales during the holiday shopping season as they compete with companies like Amazon or Walmart. Plus, it reminds people of the benefits of shopping local, such as keeping your money invested in the community, creating a personal connection to local businesses, delivering enhanced expertise and service, and helping you find those unique and diverse products and services for the very best gift—even for the quirkiest folks on your list. 

Small Business Saturday is more than an event, however, it’s a mindset we can all enjoy year-round! So avoid the lines and shipping delays this holiday season and give your loved ones an experience to remember...one that will last long after the thrill of the season is over. 

Technological enhancements to the home not only bring beauty, they also bring convenience and a better quality of life, almost magically.

What kind of magic can we provide?  Here are three examples for smart-home gifting this holiday season:

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.

Making Spaces Sound as Good as They Look

Making Spaces Sound as Good as They Look

Today's design trends involve a bunch of hard surfaces: high-gloss lacquer, mirrors everywhere, granite and hardwoods as far as the eye can see. But as striking as these spaces can look, the problem of reflected sound in the form of echos and poor acoustics can threaten to ruin the experience. Integration Controls is a company that takes sound treatments seriously, both in terms of how they improve sonics, and how they actually add to the visual dynamic. This is all part and parcel of our holistic outlook on how you enjoy your home, irrespective of the challenges it presents.
