PLAY — Custom Home Technology Earns Certification by Home Technology Association

Bluffton company has been recognized among the best-of-the-best for outstanding technical knowledge, exemplary service, and a solid business reputation

PLAY — Custom Home Technology, a premier custom electronics and home technology integrator, has passed the rigorous requirements necessary to earn certification by the Home Technology Association.

The Home Technology Association is the first independent organization to educate and empower homeowners in their technology purchases, recognize exceptional businesses, and elevate the technology integration industry’s status and stature with a rigorous third-party certification process.

PLAY has become the first in the Lowcountry area to achieve the designation of HTA Certified home technology integration firm. The HTA uses 60+ criteria to evaluate dealers and only the top 10 to 15 percent of dealers nationwide achieve this coveted certification.

HTA Certified dealers like PLAY exhibit a stellar reputation in the marketplace, a demonstrated history of technical competence, and a commitment to high-quality aftercare service and support. PLAY commits to adhering to the standards set by the HTA to maintain its status as an HTA certified dealer.

Consumers buying a diamond know to look for GIA certification from the Gemological Institute of America. Those looking for a high-quality restaurant will look at a chef’s Michelin stars. The HTA seeks to simplify the process of purchasing home technology systems with its certification standards. HTA Certified dealers consistently meet or exceed customer expectations at every stage of a project, including post-installation service and customer support.

“It’s an honor to be recognized,” said Ron Angner, owner of PLAY. “Our staff is dedicated to continuing education and training. As technology continues to change, PLAY continues to adapt and to grow. What never changes, however, is our emphasis on delivering best-in-class service to our clients.”
