Many businesses and industries have licensing and certification requirements. For example, you want to hire a licensed electrician or plumber, as that is a requirement in most states. Professionals like architects have similar requirements, having to pass an exam as well as having completed the minimum set of educational qualifications. In other professions, like interior design, requirements for licensing may vary, but there are professional organizations that have requirements for membership, assuring prospective clients of a minimum set of qualifications.
In the audio-visual and technology integration businesses, requirements also vary. For certain types of work – like electrical – there are specific licenses required, but not for other work. As in other professions, there are organizations where membership requirements separate professional organizations from others who may not have invested the time and money into developing a strong skill set. You may be surprised to learn that home technology integration is a business with few barriers to entry – almost anyone can hang a shingle and call themselves an expert.
Bravo AV has chosen to become a member of the Home Technology Association (HTA). HTA is the industry’s only certification body that has a rigorous set of standards – over 60 criterion – that a company needs to meet to be HTA-certified.
Bravo AV is proud to provide HTA-certified home automation services for home technology projects throughout Morristown and Northern New Jersey – from Savant home control systems to home theater installations and beyond. Read on to find out how that makes us different when you are searching for home automation integration providers for your next project.

As we get deeper into the fall and almost to winter in Northern New Jersey, we tend to spend more time indoors. Our audio and video entertainment systems get more of a workout this time of year, whether we are watching the Giants on a Sunday afternoon or catch up on a favorite Netflix show in the evening after dinner.
If you happen to have a larger home in the Mendham Township area, you may have accumulated a variety of TVs and audio/video equipment over the past few years. There’s a Samsung in the family room with an A/V receiver and speakers, a Sony in the master bedroom with a soundbar, an LG in the basement game room with a secondary stereo system. Other bedrooms have inherited other smaller TVs with no sound system. Each of these has a variety of different devices like cable boxes, Blu-ray players, Rokus, and Apple TVs attached to them. Each of them has its own set of remote controls, and not all of the TVs have access to the same content.
Does that scenario sound like your home? Have you wondered if there’s an easier way to have a unified entertainment system that consolidates all your video sources, makes it easy to access in any room, and doesn’t require A/V equipment scattered all over your house? There is, and it’s a whole-home A/V system with video over IP.
How can video over IP simplify your entertainment setup in your Mendham-area home? When it’s part of a Savant home automation system, you will have one straightforward way to access any video and audio content that anyone in your house can intuitively use. Just read on to learn more.

In our previous blog, we explored exactly what a home automation system includes. (You can read that blog here.)
But if you’re thinking about adding an integrated smart home system to your property, you might be wondering about the day-to-day control of your technology will look like.
Some common questions you might be wondering: How will I use my system on a daily basis? Will it be complicated for me to maneuver the control interface and therefore make me less likely to use it? Will I be able to customize my system after the initial installation?
Home automation systems are designed to add convenience to your lifestyle; whether it’s through the luxury of having the controls for all of your home’s technologies stored in one universal interface or through the efficiency benefits once you begin using your system.
But your integrated home system is only as effective as you make it.
