Crestron is the Complete Home Control System

From Motorized Shades to Audio, It’s the Comprehensive Solution

You may never have heard of Crestron, but you could call the company the grandfather of home automation. In the past thirty years, the company has introduced a long list of technology firsts that have automated both the most luxurious homes and the boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies.

Another important aspect of Crestron is its “vertically integrated” solution. In industry, vertical integration means owning and controlling every critical element of the product, from design to manufacturing to sales. In today’s globalized world, almost no company is entirely vertically integrated, but some, like Apple, control most critical aspects of their value chain. Crestron is much like Apple in that regard.

Similar to Apple, Crestron makes a whole suite of home automation products designed to work seamlessly within their ecosystem. All the major parts of their automation solution are homegrown—lighting, audio-video distribution, motorized shades, climate control and more. This allows the company to target the highest ends of the market – able to tackle the largest and most customized homes while meeting client needs for reliability and security of their complex systems.

Enrich Your Business’s Ambiance with a Commercial Sound System

The Right Background Music Sets the Mood 

What’s installed in your business? If you don’t have an audio system, you might be missing a great way to make your enterprise stand out from the rest. Whether it’s a brewery tasting room, a gym, a bar, restaurant, or a medical office, the right background music can set the perfect tone and ambiance you want to convey.  

In a doctor’s office, provide a soothing and calming background with music or even a comedy program. If someone is getting dental work done, light entertainment can help distract from thinking about the procedure ahead. In a gym, you likely want to pump up your customers; lively, upbeat tunes get heart rates going, and having the perfect volume helps, too.  

In a restaurant, the background audio can completely change the ambiance. If your coffee shop morphs into a brew pub in the evening, you can go from jaunty morning tunes to rock and pop tunes in the evening. If you have TVs showing sports, you can have the audio from the big game play in one area while music flows elsewhere.  

Can you do any of this with your current commercial sound system? If your Steamboat Springs, CO business spans multiple rooms and has a large footprint, you need a commercial sound system.
