Terrapin... Solving The Problems

Terrapin was started to solve a few common issues homeowners face when looking to install technologies - budget, disruption, and turn-around time. As audio-video integration veterans ourselves we've heard what homeowners wanted, and sought to fill a gap in the market. Simply put, we both wanted simpler solutions to common problems.

A solution that fits the budget, doesn't tear up or dirupt too much during install, and can be done quickly by yourself, your contractor, or your integration pro.

While some may have the budget to install expensive racks of equipment. other may simply not want to spend that much. Or, it may not be practical or even possible to run wires in some instances. And possibly, the 'better' installed option may just take too long to complete. We saw limited options in the market, leaving homeowners with just no other options.

Enter Terrapin, which offers unique solutions to these common issues. We are not saying that other more expensive professionally installed options arent good, in fact they very well may be the best option for your project... but if for some reason that best option doesnt fit your needs, we wanted to offer a quality alternative.
