How do you typically play music in your home when hosting a party, doing the dishes or relaxing after work? In most cases, people listen to streaming services or digital libraries using a smartphone, wireless or Bluetooth speakers. Sometimes these do the trick, but in the long run, they come with limited quality, reach, and scalability that will leave you wanting more.

As the heat rises, so does the prevalence of crime. In fact, studies have shown that most varieties of criminal activity peak during the summer — seeing an increase of more than 10 percent.

As you probably know by now, today’s discerning homeowners view smart home technology as a must-have feature instead of a nice addition. If you’re an architect, designer or interior decorator and you aren’t including home automation systems in your projects, you’re missing out on a substantial revenue source.
With summer approaching, homeowners want to enhance their outdoor spaced with smart technology. It’s easy to see why; outdoor audio and video systems help people relax and have more fun in their yards. But setting up outdoor audio and video requires specialized training, knowledge and a set of skills most electricians or contractors don’t have.
That’s why you want an expert technology integrator like Barrett’s by your side for your next project. Today we’ll walk you through all the reasons you should bring us on for any upcoming outdoor audio/video projects you have in Chicago.
We know our tech savvy clients probably know the basics of setting up a home network: You plug a modem into the wall, then plug a wireless router into the modem, and you’re up and running. However, if this is still the setup, you’re using for the devices in your home in 2019, you’re in dire need of an upgrade.
There are so many devices in our homes with wireless internet connectivity compared to years past. This puts a tremendous amount of strain on your network, which could cause all sorts of problems. Security and logistical concerns that didn’t exist before the proliferation of Wi-Fi devices are now big issues for homeowners.
Here are a few reasons why your existing home network installation isn’t enough in 2019, and what homeowners in Illinois’ Gold Coast gain from a network upgrade.
They may not be something you think about a lot, but your home’s light fixtures play a major role in setting the mood for a room, as well as how you feel. Even if it’s just at a subconscious level, you know that darker lighting in a room puts you to sleep while bright lights wake you up.
With this in mind, wouldn’t you like a system in your home to make your lights easier to manage? And wouldn’t it be great if that same system could boost your energy and help you live a healthier life? You can do all this and more with smart home lighting for your Hinsdale, IL residence.
