Network and Telephone Systems

A home data network is a convenient and useful feature of the automated home. With a home network, it is easy to access the internet, email, and your personal music & video library with simple devices anywhere in your house (or garden). DistinctAV installs a network that is highly functional, flexible, accessible in multiple areas of the house, and without all the clutter of wires.  You no longer have to be tied to just one PC – the network allows you to access your data or the web from any number of computer devices in your home.

The data network integrates many aspects of your home entertainment systems, including your digital photo, music, and movie libraries. Pull up your photo library in the form of a slide show on any display device in your house.

If you currently struggle with home networking and computer problems, imagine moving into a new home and having all the networking, well, working!

The DistinctAV staff has over 25 years experience in implementing effective home netwoking and computing solutions.  We’ll even lay out a simple, organized, network plan and provide our best tips and tricks so your systems continue to work.

“We help take the mystery out of networking. We listen to what you want, explain what you can do and design a network capable of meeting your requirements now – and expanding to meet your requirements in the future.”
