The Art of Modern Function
Echo Systems (EchoSystemsMidwest.com) is the residential and commercial automation division of Echo Group, Inc, which has roots in the community dating back more than 60 years, and has quietly emerged as the Midwest’s fastest-growing provider of professional electronic systems for homes, schools, offices, hospitals, hotels and houses of worship.
Their specialized services ensure they approach each individual client through the viewpoint of not selling the latest gadget, but rather finding the right technology and function to enhance life in the home or office. Part of that discovery process involves allowing clients to schedule an appointment for a guided tour of their 12,000 sq. ft., $2 million dollar Experience Center at their offices at 4315 S. 120th St. In the Experience Center, clients can stroll through this indoor “Street of Dreams”-caliber home and take in the incredible design, while trying to identify the locations of the hidden technology, lighting control and motorized shades throughout this full-sized “residence.” While moving from the kitchen to the bathroom, visitors might discover hidden TVs located within the walls and mirrors of the sink and shower. One of the marquee areas in Echo’s experience center is referred to as the “Man Cave,” which demonstrates a full rec-room audio/visual experience. A cutting-edge curved TV with video tiling allows you to view multiple broadcasts at once, with full, immersive sound and simple control from a handheld smart device or tablet in the wall. Just adjacent to the “Man Cave” is quite literally a million-dollar home theater. Luxury recliner theater seating, giant screen…it’s the picture of premier personal theater design.
Doug Dushan, Sales Manager & Marketing Coordinator, would be quick to point out that even though the showroom features many high-end amenities and options, it is meant to simply be a tool for the imagination. At Echo Systems, it’s all custom. They work with each client individually to help establish a realistic budget and expectations. They will educate you to the level of your interest and will back it up with exceptional customer service and competent execution. Of greatest importance is the building of a relationship between Echo’s staff and their clientele.
