We’re a technology integrator, not a restauranteur. But in our humble opinion, an excellent restaurant experience requires three things: great food, great service, and a great atmosphere. If one of those pillars falters, the other two need to be extra strong to ensure a positive visit.
In today’s blog, we’re going to be focusing on atmosphere. How is the ambiance in your restaurant? Ambiance can be cultivated in many ways—through decorations, lighting, and music. And as we all know, music has a particular influence on our moods.
With the right soundtrack or playlist, you set the scene for your restaurant’s personality. Does your vibe best pair with oldies and classic rock? Throwback pop hits? Or classical music? Whatever your style is, a high-end multi-room sound system will envelop your guests in the experience and help them unwind.
Below, we’ll share what to look for in a restaurant sound system and how it can set your business apart in Pasadena, CA.

Are you thinking about adding a security system to your Pasadena, CA home? You aren’t alone. 34 percent of U.S. households—or approximately 36 million homes—currently own a home security system, according to Parks Associates. And that number is predicted only to keep growing.
But if you’re worried about trespassers on your property, you’ll need more than a few security cameras. With a complete access control system, visitors will be stopped at your gate or front door and prompted to enter a code. Motion sensors will notify you that someone’s there so that you can speak to them through the two-way intercom. If they aren’t welcome, you can call the necessary authorities.
However, a DIY access control setup can only take you so far. With a professional smart security system installation, all your security devices work together to achieve one common goal: safety. Here’s what a professionally installed system can achieve that a single smart device can’t do alone.
