Take Advantage of Smart Technology and Design in your Home Theater

Hidden Technology Lets You Blend the Tech with the Décor

For some people, a home theater is a space that is a smaller replica of a commercial theater, only more luxurious. For some, it might be a tech showcase with visible components, and homeowners may want to show off the state-of-the-art amplifiers, speakers, projectors, and other elements that provide the superb video and audio.

Some people may not necessarily want a dedicated space for a home theater; they prefer a living area that serves other purposes as well. Can you have both in your Edwards, CO home? Absolutely, as there are a variety of ways to hide the technology without compromising performance in your home theater design.

Trust Your Home’s Automation to a Certified Company

Why HTA Certification is Important

Is this the year you’ve decided to build the automated home you’ve always wanted in Vail? Whether it’s a remodel of your vacation home or a new build for your retirement dream home, any large project is the perfect time to add the latest smart home features.

As you look into service providers to help you build your home, typically you rely on people with the right skills, experience, and certifications. Professionals like architects pass exams and must complete specific educational requirements; others like interior designers and builders have professional organizations that they often belong to that bolster their credentials.

In our technology integration business, the certification requirements vary. For some types of work, like electrical, specific licensing is required. But other areas of this business don’t require licensing or even minimum education. While that doesn’t mean that technology integration is “fly by night” or that there are no ways to obtain the right training and credentials, it does mean that there are relatively few barriers to entry.

For that reason, Cloud Nine Integrated Systems has chosen to be an HTA certified company. HTA stands for Home Technology Association, and they are the industry’s only certification body. Read on to learn more about what this means, and why you should choose a certified company for your Vail Valley home automation project.
