Accent Electronic Systems Integrators can transport your home into the 21st century.

Accent president Dan Robbins and vice president Paul Caruso are experts in integrated home electronics, which gives owners complete operational control of their home or business from their televisions and thermostats to their alarm systems and lighting, remotely. Electronic enhancements such as security cameras and monitoring devices, home theaters, hidden speaker systems and complete home and business lighting solutions are provided by Accent, with locations serving clients in Bonita Springs and Naples, as well as Akron, Ohio, and Bridgeville, Pa.

Devices with customized networking capability, such as an Apple iPad, are one of many options available for customers at Accent’s North Naples location off Taylor Road. Through an iPad or smart phone, customers are able to monitor their homes from anywhere in the world, as long as they have a cell phone signal or Internet connection.

Accent also has a commercial division, dedicated to serving all needs from small businesses to global operations worldwide. Commercial clientele can find total solutions for technology in businesses with access control systems, automated device controls, closed circuit television set up, fire alarm panel controls, intercom and paging system networks, pro-audio, security, theater and video surveillance.

With a simple touch of a smart phone, homeowners can monitor their home through webcams, turn off lights and adjust their thermostat from thousands of miles away. The age-old question of what music teenagers are listening to can now be checked remotely through iport connections, and video cameras can provide a view of what teenagers are up to via a smart phone.

If junior is grounded from the television, parents away on business meetings can remotely turn off the TV or limit the channels the teen has access to, through Accent’s services.

Another benefit Accent provides to homeowners is a reduction in the multitude of remote controls that come with today’s electronic devices, such as fans, televisions, home theaters, DVD players, Blue Ray players and stereos. Accent can consolidate the clutter of seven remote controls into one application on a smart phone or iPad for their clients.

Accent’s mission is “to bring new technology and ideas together and design custom low voltage electronic systems that are state of the art, but simple to operate.” And its award-winning technological excellence in Southwest Florida has business increasing steadily, despite the economy.

Accent executives Robbins and Caruso demonstrated digital networking meeting capabilities with their locations in Pittsburgh, Naples and Bonita Springs. Within a matter of minutes, all three offices were meeting by video. This same technology can also be found at Bonita Springs Fire District’s conference room, as well as the Lee County Courthouse.

“We’re growing in the areas of serving our commercial clients. We’re currently working on a pretty large security project in a Port Charlotte Schools with video surveillance for the entire exterior of the building,” Caruso said.

Accent Electronic Systems Integrators latest location in suite 7 of the industrial plaza, behind Regions Bank off Taylor Road in North Naples, provides a state-of-the-art facility that includes a model of a home interior to help customers learn about the technology and visualize where it could be incorporated in their homes.

Accent also offers a planning room that allows clients to evaluate architectural drawings and work with specialized expert integrators, in order to determine what zones of their home they want to add streamlined and sleek looking technological enhancements.

“Our job is to make technology simple, usable, and approachable,” said commercial account manager Mike Riddles.
