Why Work With Bravo AV of New Jersey, an HTA, Home Technology Association Certified Home Automation Dealer?
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.mBravo 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.
