6 home automation companies merge into 1 super company for the super rich

Six home technology companies are merging to form one super-company that caters to the super-rich. Dubbed VIA International, it will provide a premium home automation experience to people with a lot of money to spend on their homes.

Cyber Sound, DSI Entertainment, Engineered Environments, Paragon Technology, S3 Aurant, and Studio AV are joining forces to become a full-service home technology provider with distribution across the country, or at least where “ultra-high net worth clients” live. Before the merger, the companies were based in regions across the Western United States, in Colorado, Utah, Northern and Southern California, Arizona, and Montana. They build and install systems for home movie theaters, speaker systems, lighting control, security, and energy management.

“The merger of leading home technology integrators to form VIA International will transform the entire residential systems industry,” Randy Stearns, CEO and founding partner of VIA International said in a statement. “Together, we are elevating a fragmented, project-based business model into a consolidated and streamlined service provider that emphasizes providing a concierge-level experience over multiple years in multiple homes, not simply a one-time, product-centric solution.”
