"Home of the Future" for the Average Homeowner
Very soon, your home computer will control a variety of systems in your home. Currently, it is common to "surf the net", store and play music, and view digital photos and even home video on a home computer. Soon, you will do all of this, plus buy, rent, store, and watch movies, record television programs, and subscribe to online media services. This will all be done with a Home Entertainment System, consisting of a home computer, an audio/video surround sound receiver or amplifier, and a High Definition television. The home computer will become the main tool controlling all of the entertainment in your home, and more. Maine Total Technology provides the expertise to execute home technology projects, and to help manage Home Entertainment Systems. Our services allow homeowners to focus on enjoying their Home Entertainment System.

The Reality of It All

Your data will need to be protected, secure, and you will need to have a reliable disaster recovery plan in place in the event of an equipment failure.
