Hi! My name is Patrick Murray. I got started in AV around 1995 building racks and pulling cables in and around New York City. After moving to Germany in 2005 I founded Controlhaus, an independent AMX and Crestron programming company.
With the release of the iPhone, Controlhaus began expanding its services to include mobile, desktop and cloud application development.
Seeing a need to help fellow AV programmers upgrade their skills with modern programming, LearnAvProgramming.com was launched in 2016. Over one hundred students have learned new ways to program AV and Smart Home Systems from the online courses offered on LearnAvProgramming.com.
As technology grows into every aspect of our lives, the comfort level and expectations of integrated systems has also grown. At the same time, the tolerance for complicated, inflexible and expensive solutions has waned.
My goal is to provide tools and training that make it easy for AV Pros to upgrade their skills and have a voice in shaping the future of AV.
