We love our beautiful spread in the latest issue of Prelude, a Boston Design Guide magazine. We’re so lucky to have such inspirational magazines right here on our doorstep. Prelude Magazine gets up close and personal with the businesses BDG features and reveals their behind-the-scenes stories. This article covers the increasingly important topic of home network security.
Super Powered Home Network Security
Launched by MIT graduate Michael Oh in the early 1990s as a provider of Mac small business IT support, TSP recognized a gap in the market about a decade ago: clients were asking for the company’s help at home. “They were dissatisfied with their home systems and the level of service they were getting from providers,” says Aaron Stallings, director of TSP’s smart spaces division. Aaron’s focus is on client relations and residential design.
With high profile corporate clients including the Boston Celtics and Novartis, TSP expanded into designing multi-faceted security, lighting, audio, and IT systems for luxury residential projects. “Our history in IT services has provided us with more than just a robust set of technical skills. It has given us a unique perspective on home automation as a continuing relationship rather than just a one-time install.” says Stallings.
Cyber Secure Infrastructure
TSP’s technical expertise is in demand now more than ever with so many people working from home requiring robust networks with strong security. “We build the cyber security infrastructure in the house, including the firewall and networking equipment,” says founder Michael Oh. “We’re not using stuff you buy on Amazon which can be easy to hack.”
AV systems are now converging with more systems in the home and that creates risk, says Oh. “Our job is to design the systems including building the cyber security, having them installed, and then being there along the way to provide updates.”
TSP also works with clients to install cutting edge lighting solutions. “There is a lot to understanding lighting control these days. We use systems that follow natural daylight patterns and rhythms and have a big impact on the homeowner’s well- being,” says Stallings. “Lighting is changing at the pace of computer technology and our job is to educate ourselves about what’s out there and bring it to our clients.”
