Proofreader meets… SMART Home Technology Specialist

As part of my marketing strategy to promote my proofreading, copywriting & blogging business, I spend some of my time networking. As a result, I have met some wonderful people working in all sorts of businesses. With my innate interest in “all things business” I invited Jo Horne from Sound4Vision to tell me her business story. Here it is…

Jo Horne and her husband, Stuart, run Sound4Vision in Thame, Oxfordshire, providing easy living through SMART home video and audio technology. Stuart brings a wealth of technical expertise and experience to the business; Jo, with her effervescent personality, brings a personal, soft and feminine touch to sales and customer solutions.

What is SMART home technology?

A smart home is one equipped with special structured wiring, enabling owners to remotely control or programme an array of automated home electronic devices by entering a single command. The intelligent home technology market is constantly changing, and can be a very steep learning curve for the uninitiated.

Jo and Stuart offer a bespoke specialist service to the home and commercial market in full intelligent home installations. Their products include flat screen TV technology, home cinema, lifestyle lighting, door entry, CCTV or data and telephone networks, and distributed music – even to the patio and around the BBQ, using a choice of discreet outdoor speakers!

If you imagine how smooth the audio and visual equipment is in the best hotels and offices, this is the effect that Sound4Vision brings to the domestic market. Their clients might be looking to update sound and vision equipment in their home to suit the changing needs and demands of their family. Alternatively, they might be looking to make their home “technology-enabled” prior to placing it on the property market.

Whatever the brief, Sound4Vision brings in-depth and current knowledge of both the home technology market and its product range. What makes Sound4Vision unique – and distinctly appealing – is their imagination, experience and eye for aesthetics when it comes to home TV and audio installation.

Sound4Vision can immediately see how wall-mounted TV’s or speakers could be re-positioned, disguised or hidden completely, depending on the owner’s tastes and requirements. They can also remove or rearrange the clutter and cables associated with music and home technology. They know all about picture splitters, mirror TV’s and waterproof TV’s and how, where and when they should be installed.

It could even be said that Sound4Vision can actually install harmony and easy living through first-class music, television and sound solutions. It’s as simple as “Out with the parents’ complaints about loud music… In with the Iphone app with simple touch screen technology to turn it down remotely!” Sounds like bliss. Whatever the solution might be, the emphasis is on simple, hassle-free and harmonious living at the touch of a button.

How does the process work?

Sound4Vision meet the client in their home. They learn about their family, the lifestyle and they gain a full understanding of their sound and vision dreams. After the meeting, they produce a mess-free, cost-effective solution to bring the client’s dream right into their lives in a way that’s always in keeping with their taste, aspirations and budget.

If you’re working with an architect on a building project, the best time to introduce Sound4Vision to the conversation is at this point. Their audio and visual plans can overlay the designs so the building project can absorb the instructions as part of the process. Alternatively, if you are just about to redecorate or you simply want to update your existing arrangements, Sound4Vision would love to hear from you.

If you would like to know more about how Sound4Vision can help you realise the full potential of your ideas for your home or property, whatever the budget, visit Sound4Visionemail or call Jo Horne 07889 028468 to arrange a free no-obligation appointment.
