For Work

These articles relate to the systems for work or businesses. Many systems are also in the residential category.

In-cabinet Rack System

This rack from Strong Racks is designed for easier installations and maintenance of your expensive network, audio, video and other smart home technology. We often get asked to conceal equipment in tight spaces and having the right solutions to manage wiring and keep equipment well organized is critical.

These rack systems do add to your budget but we would highly recommend them if you want a clean, long lasting solution.

Design and pricing need to be coordinated with your cabinet or millwork contractors.

Commercial Display in Niche

This system installation illustrates the video wall mounts we typically use for commercial TV or in this case a touch screen within a niche with equipment neatly organized behind the display for concealment.

Shallow Niche Creates Challenges

In many installations we have to locate the equipment behind the displays. This has many challenges including service and future access. A much better design is to locate the equipment in a server room or AV rack. Initial costs are higher but the ongoing service and maintenance is lower.

Screen Innovations – ZERO Edge screens

I still get questions as to whether projection systems have met their match with today’s large screen LED and Ultra HD TVs on the market. In many homes, it just makes sense to install a 65″ or 80″ TV. Its large and hangs on the wall quickly. No cabling or power to a projector.

Why do a screen?

So why bother discussing a projection screen? Until you see the new products on the market today from our leading manufacturers, you won’t believe these are projection.

This update is not that big of a deal but my favourite feature has to be screen sharing or as Apple calls it…mirroring.

What is Mirroring?

If you don’t have an Apple TV ($109 CAD) and you use a MAC at home, you are missing one of the best features available to you.

CCTV Video Cameras do work

Do you wonder if investing $3k to $8k on video cameras for your home is worth it? It depends on if you or someone you know has had a break-in. One of our clients asked us to install cameras after their renovation because of an increase in theft in the neighbourhood. Six months after, they caught a thief breaking into their car in their driveway and 2 days later the police caught him doing it again with the help of the video footage.

Check out this video from that evening.
