Annapolis Waterfront Homeowner Enjoys Custom AV Integration by HiTech Upgrades

HiTech Upgrades, a small business based in Severna Park Maryland, recently completed a custom waterfront home renovation project in Annapolis MD. The project included Sonos, TruAudio speakers, Episode Amplifiers, and Samsung HDTVs.

HTU (HiTech Upgrades, LLC) was approached by local custom home builder Gateway Construction to provide audio/video expertise to a high -end residential client in the Annapolis, MD area. The homeowner was interesed in having Sonos music sources playing throughout the home and multiple LED HDTVs. HiTech Upgrades consulted with the homeowner and integrated its services during the design and construction phase to make the project a success.


The home was pre -wired for speakers and televisions for multiple rooms including the great room, kitchen, garage, formal dining room, basement, pool, patio, and more. Each zone is controlled using CR200 Sonos handheld controllers as well as an iPad. TruAudio in -ceiling ghost series speakers were installed as well as a pair of Bogen NEAR A8 speakers by the pool.

The homeowner is estatic with the high -quality audio output and perfection of the TruAudio speakers and in awe at the bass reproduction of the outdoor patio Bogen speakers.

Samsung LED HDTVs were installed in several rooms including a flip -down TV in the custom kitchen.

Wireless access points by Ubiquiti Networks were installed in two locations of the home in order to provide seamless integration and strong WiFi Internet access throughout the property.

Through a collaborative design and construction process, working closely with the home builder and the electrician, HiTech Upgrades delivered another fabulous well integrated and professional audio/video system in Annapolis, MD.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
