Acoustic Design Systems (ADS), a Las Vegas-based provider in commercial and residential home automation and security solutions, has joined Home Technology Specialists of America (HTSA), an international trade consortium of the residential technology dealers and custom integration specialists across the U.S. and Canada.

“We are excited to join a collaborative group to discuss and learn best practices and operational concepts from like-minded companies across the nation,” said Chris Sterle, founder and CEO of ADS. “Through this membership, our company will benefit from the wealth of knowledge and educational resources that HTSA offers as the industry continues to flourish.”

As an HTSA member, ADS will benefit from the group’s marketing and education resources and tools. HTSA will hold a virtual spring conference to be attended by all ADS sales and management team members. HTSA was founded in 1996 by technology specialty retailers who came together to share, learn and grow their operations.

“We are delighted to welcome Acoustic Design Systems into the HTSA family,” said Jon Robbins, executive director of HTSA. “The ADS team has set high standards for themselves and, like their many new colleagues in the consortium, possess the vision and passion to deliver higher-performance technology solutions and services to enrich the lifestyle of all of their clients.”

ADS also recently earned luxury certification from Home Technology Association (HTA), which educates homeowners in their technology purchases, recognizes businesses and elevates the technology integration industry’s status with a third-party certification process. ADS was evaluated by more than 60 criteria including reputation in the marketplace, history of technical competence, and commitment to high-quality aftercare service and support.
