B&W P3
B&W P3, Winner of T3 Magazine's Gadget of the Year!

 What tops this year's most wanted?

Personal audio - devices to plug & play music collections from iPads and smart devices such as the B&W Zeppelin Air.  Headphones are also in demand - check out B&W's new fold-able and lightweight P3 (pictured).  


iPads and tablets are still a popular choice.  If you'll eventually want to add A/V, Security or other home automation controls to your device, please call us and we'll be glad to help.  An all-in-one remote (single room controller) is always appreciated or how about a turntable for your vinyl-lover? 


And, for the person who has "everything", a Visual Sports Simulator!  Fore!  


Stop in to audition your choices - bring your list!

Safety Tip 
Babysitter Checklist
This thorough list was shared with us and we felt it worth passing along.  Arm your babysitter with everything they need to know while you're away.  Download the list from our Safety Technologies website. 

Welcome Fall! 


Fall was ushered in with a blast from Sandy!  We hope that you and your family had little impact.  We're proud of the work our trade associations and manufacturers, like Honeywell, are doing to help.  Locally, our friends at Trevarrow (Sub-Zero Appliances) are collecting "Jammies for Jersey".  Let us know what you are doing and we'll help spread the word.     


We wish you a beautiful, memorable Thanksgiving. Enjoy all that it brings - family, turkey and football! (time to get that 65" flat panel?)      

As always, remember not to "socialize" your holiday travel plans via facebook or twitter and be sure to download our babysitter checklist below. It's a great tool for your child's caregiver while you're at holiday gatherings.   Stay safe!


Black & White Friday! 
B&W Zeppelin Air on white
