Did you know that we, Strand Security of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, design, install and service home theaters?
We sure do and have been for many years. We recently celebrated 12 years in business right here on the Grand Strand. We have many more years of experience! We started this business in Maryland and move south 12+ years ago.
Between our technicians we have 25+ years of experience installing home theaters for our customers.
Having a home theater is a dream for many homeowners. We at Strand Security will be happy to help you make that dream come true. Home theaters come in all shapes, sies and fit within many budgets.
It’s important to note and answer the following questions.
Once you know what you want and can afford, it’s time to start asking around for referrals.
If you have friends with home theaters, a nice surround sound system, or if you know of a business with an awesome system, ask them who did the work! Chances are you are going to be most happy and comfortable with a direct referral!
Next, search for and read online reviews.
We highly recommend you use Google to your advantage and read a much as you can about the (local) businesses you want to hire for your home theaters installation. Not all companies are created equal…
Once you’ve chosen one or two installers to work with, you will want to set up an initial consult to find out more about them! Ask questions like:
Smart homeowners do their homework. Here are several resources for you as you start your home theater install journey!
Raise your virtual hand if you’ve been out shopping for gifts! Many Americans start early; they shop all throughout the year and start serious shopping as early as September.
Of course,there are those among us who wait until the last minute, or just can not find the right gift for the right person.
Have you ever considered giving a family gift? We’ve put together 7 awesome family gift ideas that work for the holidays, or any other momentous occasion (think New Baby, Adoption, Anniversary)
Here they are…
One of the best gifts you can give a family is the gift of an experience. Why not purchase a family pass to a local-to-them amusement park? In the Myrtle Beach area that means a park like Broadway Grand Prix Family Race Park or one of several Waterparks. Most of these parks offer a family season pass valid for a few months or a whole year to enjoy over and over again!
If you are a grandparent, or aunt/uncle and you want to go big… consider inviting your family on a trip somewhere special. It could be a country like Mexico or Costa Rica, or a family destination like Walt Disney World. No matter what you pick, if the trip is a gift, you’ll have a blast.
PS This is one of the best gifts to give because YOU will enjoy this gift as well.
For the sport and outdoor enthusiasts, why not get a camping gear package together. Nothing says ‘family fun’ like sleeping in a tent! Don’t stop at the tent. Supply the sleeping bags, backpacks and the makings of an outdoor kitchen. Be sure the tent your purchase is big enough for the family to invite you, too! 😉
For the family that has everything, or those who have older teens, a SONOS speaker system could be a perfect gift. They often don’t want to go anywhere, but would like to host a party, or two! Give the gift of sound this season. Start by connecting with us – we don’t only sell these speakers, we install them as well.
Does your family have gadgets, but no smarthome? Zwave can connect all your tech to create a smarthome. We love this technology and we are experts in putting this together for our customers. Give us a call to see if this might be the perfect gift for a loved one.
Last but not least, go big or go home: here is a BIG idea for the family (your own maybe?) that has everything! Give the gift of their own home theater! That would include the new TV, surround sound stereo, new seating and everything in between! It’s a gift that keeps on giving, year after year.

Before you decide on what you want, you need to know what options are available to you!
The best place to start is with research!
There are many great places to start your research. Here are some options:
What is your prefered order of ‘wants’ in a home theater?
Put these in order of most importance to you first, and then get started with planning.
You might want, want, want, but what can your home handle? How big is the space you are planning to add this home theater?
It is very important to take good measurements and to draw up a plan. Creating a design blueprint is a great idea. There are apps you can download that will help you do this on your phone so that you can visualize where what your room will look like and where the seating and equipment will be placed.
The most important thing to consider in all this home theater planning is this:
If you have never setup a home theater, a Smart TV, lighting, surround sound, a computer system or anything of this sort, setting up a home theater is going to do nothing for you but give you a big headache.
We suggested hiring an expert for your home theater setup and design.
It’s what they do all day long and what they are good at! This home theater installer will be aware of the latest technology, where to get the best pricing on the best equipment and how to install and program the whole system so it works the first time you want to use it!
