MONACO® is founded in 2005 by an engineer, entrepreneur and audio video expert, Larry Weiss. Our mission is simple: to be the best digital audio, video and home automation one stop shop solution provider. Our company has always been a Solutions and Customer Oriented company from the start. We believe in providing every customer the correct and best possible solutions according to their budget, needs and lifestyle. When we first started, HDTV and flat panels were just beginning to gain popularity. Many people started to get their 5.1 home theater surround sound solutions using either in wall or in ceiling speakers. Even the universal remote was still simply a basic black and white device.
We predicted that all electronics in the whole house eventually will be connected. We created our slogan “Everything Connected” knowing that would be the direction things were heading. In 2006, we created a partnership with Crestron Electronics, the biggest and the most trusted name in the industry. Our strong partnership with Crestron® enables us to provide our customers a complete home technology solution for home theater, whole house audio & video, lighting and climate control, security & surveillance and luxury & comfort.
We also joined Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association (CEDIA) where in 2007 we won our CEDIA award in Best Integrated Home With the launch of Smartphone and Apple® iPad, the whole house integrated technology became reality and a MUST for the modern home. Now the price of whole house automation is getting even more affordable.
In 2012, we created another important partnership with Universal Remote Control Total Control (URC®TC). URC® has a proven track record of making simple and affordable universal remote controls. With their strong commitment to make technology simple and easy for the costumers, we are proud to support the URC® Total Control solutions. In 2013, we launched our first retail division: MONACO®AV Solution Center Store™ in Pasadena. The idea behind our Solution Center Store™ is to become a destination of choice for customers, architects and interior designers to learn experience and shop for the latest in digital audio, video and technology.
