Multimedia Solutions, Inc. is Still Safely Serving Our Customers

As businesses close throughout the country to aid in social distancing and halting the spread of COVID-19, we have been designated by the government as an essential business that may remain open to support our community during this time. That being said, we’re not conducting business as usual. Your safety is greatly important to us, which is why we’ve implemented special steps to protect clients and staff during the COVID-19 outbreak in the US.

Technology integrators have been labeled an essential business by the Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) in large part since we’re vital to homeowners setting up home offices and learning environments. Integrators are also recognized for their role in keeping a strong networking infrastructure throughout the country as other essential organizations also need support during this challenging time.

During this critical period, we are committed to helping our clients stay connected, support remote learning for the nation’s children, and protect our clients’ properties and families.

Though networking and communications infrastructure are the primary reasons for our essential business designation, we will also be available for any service, support, and installation of vital home technology systems including security, surveillance, lighting control, entertainment, and more. A strong network is essential for much of the country right now, and we are here to support your needs.

While the DHS has provided these general recommendations, it is still up to the states to set their own regulations and restrictions. While Governor Abbot has left it up to local municipalities to set their own status in Texas, the Dallas metropolitan area has “Shelter in Place” restrictions in effect, meaning all non-essential businesses will be forced to close. As an essential business Multimedia Solutions, Inc. will remain open with some restrictions (like office personnel working from home).

What is multi-room audio?

Multi-room audio is the practice of connecting several speakers so that you can enjoy music in every room of your house. The main audio components stay within a dedicated AV cabinet and then you control them through a smart device of your choice to broadcast music throughout the house. The components of a multi-room system can vary. You can include wireless speakers, wired speakers, soundbars, or any other number of AV equipment.

If you already have AV equipment, you can use matrix switches or AV receivers to implement it in your multi-room system; there is no need to overhaul your audio gear completely! But how does everything connect? There are two ways that a multi-room audio system operates. The first is that it connects to your home network to connect all of your devices. The second method, and the one that we recommend, is a wired installation. Your speakers link back to your main audio components and sources through dedicated Cat5, Cat6 or fiber optic cables.

What can I do with multi-room audio?

You can stream music from your favorite streaming services, such as Spotify or Apple Music, or even play music stored on a device of your choosing. If you are into a more retro aesthetic, you can hook up a CD player or a record player to your system.

Add Convenience

The most apparent benefit to home automation is convenience. There are endless possibilities to make your life easier. Close all of the shades in your house and turn off all the lights with the simple touch of a button. Create a scene so that with one touch, you can lower the temperature, close the blinds, turn down the lights, and start your movie. Have your thermostat heat up the house right before you get home, so you aren't freezing, and you don't have to run the heat all day. Install motion sensors in your hallway so that when you get up to use the restroom in the middle of the night, you don't have to worry about falling. Smart home automation was created to make your life easier and is worth the investment.
