CEDIA - HTSA Adds Harrison Home Systems to Growing Membership List

Major player in the Denver integration market brings their custom home automation expertise to the buying group

Dallas, TX - CEDIA Expo Booth #6203 - October 13, 2015 - The Home Technology Specialists of America (HTSA) is thrilled to welcome Harrison Home Systems to the rapidly expanding list of members. The Denver-based integrator is making their debut as an HTSA member and networking with vendors and fellow members at CEDIA Expo this week.


George Harrison opened Harrison Home Systems in 2000 as a small, A/V centric integration firm, and he and his wife, Kassa, have been managing the business as a duo for the past eight years. In recent years, the Harrisons have added specialists to their team as they expanded to offer home automation, lighting and shade control, making them a major player in the booming Denver market.

This past year, the Harrisons took a chance and bid on a major luxury condo infrastructure project and were selected over two, much larger local competitors. The work they are delivering for the 250 Columbine condos has sent them on a path of significant growth. Currently, they are focusing on large whole-home automation projects and they leverage technology such as video-conferencing and real-time data entry in the field to keep their teams and processes organized. They also prioritize training and education to keep themselves and their staff up-to-date on the latest technologies their clients are interested in.

"We have reached a critical point in our company's growth and we believe that the marketing and business support that HTSA provides its members is what can really push us to the next level of success," said George Harrison, co-founder of Harrison Home Systems. "HTSA members represent the best in the industry, and we are excited to contribute our expertise and learn from other members to further our teams' education and training."

As they make their HTSA debut at CEDIA Expo, Harrison Home Systems will have the opportunity to network and meet with HTSA vendors that fit into their highly-specialized home automation and A/V projects. They will also get to learn from other HTSA members and share their business ideals that have stayed with them since they began, including their consistency and dedication to clients, no matter the size of their project.

"George and Kassa have taken their business and made themselves a big name in a competitive market by finding their strong suit and taking the time to build lasting relationships with both partners and customers," said Bob Hana, managing director of HTSA. "They will prove to be an invaluable source of inspiration and advice for other members, and HTSA will provide them with unwavering support, additional training opportunities and new relationships that will help them continue to grow."
