Since 2012 we have seen how all AV and communications manufacturers have geared their products toward being net-workable, making a strong, dependable and secure network a necessity more than a luxury.
As more American homeowners than ever before purchase high-end home entertainment, lighting control, whole home control and security systems, the need for competent, experienced and cost-effective integrators will increase. The residential electronic systems industry will realize a third straight year of growth in all categories especially the control/automated sector.
This year more products than ever will be automated, controlled and linked.
Quality and Value:
When upgrading your home technology systems it is important it is to select the correct AV integration company. A common mistake is to assume that going with the highest quote will give you the best system. Some companies tend to over specify jobs which can lead to unnecessary complications. Be sure to check into the experience and results of an integrator in offering the best value, but still delivering a system which works perfectly and is easy to use. It is important when comparing AV proposals to ensure you are comparing ‘apples with apples’.
Home technology can seem confusing. Does the company you are considering use complicated industry jargon when speaking with you. Or will they instead explain exactly what these systems can do for you. Of course you should ask as many questions as you like, so that you to feel comfortable with the system and the service.
Not Sales People but AV Consultants:
Does the company you are considering have a long-standing clients base with the majority of their business coming from recommendations? The best will consult with you and not try to “sell” you. After all your budget is your budget. With an investment in Home Entertainment and AV you’re probably going to be stuck with the solution you choose for a while. Make sure you are happy and understand all the bells and whistles!
Ease of use:
The first consideration should be “will this be easy for me and my family to use?” True consultants will keep this a top priority, from the planning stages to final system handover. Also, be sure to ask if they use external programmers for any configuration and programming that needs to be accomplished. Many a customer has found themselves in a situation where the integrator they chose neglected to tell them about the exorbitant fees that will incur for making even a slight change to the system in the future.
The importance of a pre-job briefing should not be under-estimated. Even in a small business where your resources are limited to two people.
A pre-job briefing (sometimes called a “tailgate meeting”) is a meeting which informs all workers of the job requirements. In particular a pre-job briefing is used to alert workers to potential safety hazards. A pre-job briefing need not be a formal gathering; however, it is mandatory that all workers involved attend, and worker attendance should be documented.
What Should Be Included?
rules require that a pre-job briefing discuss, at a minimum, the following issues:
Special precautions to be taken
Hazards associated with the job
Energy control procedures
Procedures and Policies
Personal Protective Equipment Note that the first letters of each of these bulleted items form the acronym SHEPP, which can be used to help remember the important issues that need to be discussed.Pre-job briefings should be proactive meetings in which workers are informally quizzed to make certain that they fully understand the safety issues that they will face.
When Should Pre-Job Briefings Be Held?
At the beginning of each shift
At the beginning of any new job
Any time that job conditions change
When new personnel are introduced to an ongoing job
The time you save because of this upfront time of communication is time well spent.

“Influence”, “vision” and “service” are all important aspects of leadership, but equally important and often overlooked is delegation.
“Delegation doesn’t simply mean telling someone to perform a task. Delegation means trusting a team member by giving him an opportunity to use his strengths. Delegation frees up time so you can handles efforts that only you can do.”
Letting go and trusting your team with tasks you’ve always managed can be tough, but it is an important part of being a good leader.
