We had the good fortune of connecting with Adam Fischer and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Adam, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
The most important factor behind the success of Total Home WiFi is our focus on enrichment—meaning the things that don’t often arise in discussions about tech: hiking, reading books, listening to music—the restorative processes. Of course productivity, education, and convenience are fundamental reasons behind a desire for technology, but a seamless and secure design & installation is what allows people to benefit from and receive value from it. Naturally, a good smart home installation increases property value along the way, but more to my point–a truly great installation means more time for our clients to do what they love, and to achieve a deeper, richer value from whatever that is. For instance, I’ve always disliked the term Audio-Visual because people think it means providing wires, screens and speakers in their homes, but really my interest is in offering a deeper experience of music and film, all in way that someone can easily access it—both reliably, and without frustration. Our clients refer us to their friends and neighbors for many reasons (our online reviews are a testament to that), but I think it’s mainly because we offer something unique in our field. We’re not DIY / hourly IT techs, yet we’re also not selling whole-home control systems either. We approach all projects by discovering how our clients experience life (and technology) in their homes, then we design and install systems to enhance those experiences without intruding into them. I could go on about our heavily-tested product selection, constant continuing education, and partnerships with skilled specialists—and these are all important factors in our success too, but most importantly: we believe technology should enrich the experience of life—and never clutter or obstruct it.
What should our readers know about your business?
We’ve been keeping our customers connected since 2008, and we look at challenges like puzzles. We love puzzles, which can all be solved by the following process: attempt, learn, refine, repeat—until success is achieved. We believe great Wi-Fi requires great wiring (and equipment, and properly planned network infrastructure too). We ask clients what they want their sound to look like. We believe a great installation is one without any troubleshooting calls afterwards. We are all about getting rid of satellite dishes or cable boxes in favor of buffer-free streaming. We believe that technology should enrich one’s life experience.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I’m going to reply as if there were no pandemic going on: Angeles National Forest trails; Sushi Ike; Descanso Gardens; Colombo’s Italian Steakhouse & Jazz Club for open mic night; El Matador beach; Unincorporated Coffee; Griffith Park Observatory; LA Central Library downtown; The Troubadour
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to use this space to tell everyone to read / watch / learn about Diana Beresford-Kroeger, an incredible author, teacher, botanist, scientist, and keeper of ancient knowledge. She’s written many books, and there is an excellent documentary about her titled Call of the Forest. This woman knows how to reverse the effects of climate change, and it is still possible! Find her however you can, then go plant some native trees near your house.
