With the help of our leadership team, we have created a gift guide to highlight a few gifts that every AV pro is looking for this holiday season.

chromecast

Chromecast media streaming device

 

 

Nick Belcore, our VP of Sales, suggests checking out the Chromecast by Google this year. Chromecast is as small as a thumb drive and plugs right into the HDMI port on your TV. For a reasonable price, you can’t beat having the ability to watch all of your favorite shows (via Netflix and HBO GO) and access many of your apps in one place! This gift is perfect for binge watching all of your favorite TV shows and hours of gaming over the holidays.

The Tylt Enrgi 2K battery pack

 

 

Brian McClimans, VP of Global Business Development, has his eye on the Tylt Enrgi 2K battery pack with built-in universal USB port. Brian loves this device because it is essential for someone who is constantly on the go like him! The slim design, quick charge time, and universal compatibility makes for one convenient gadget. As a bonus, this device nearly doubles your smartphone’s battery life. You’ll never have to worry about missing those important work emails.

 

 

 

Quirky’s Refuel WiFi controlled propane monitor

Quirky’s Refuel WiFi controlled propane monitor

Jack McKeague, President of Sales of our Display Division and unofficial Grill Master at Peerless-AV, suggests taking a look at the Quirky Refuel. This product is essentially a WiFi controlled propane monitor. This device allows you to get alerts and notifications sent to your smartphone when your propane tank is running low. However, if your smartphone isn’t within hands reach, you can tap Refuel’s sensor to display an LED reading of the gas level! If you get the green light, you’re good to grill! The perfect gift to buy during the holidays to get you excited for grilling during those warm summer months.

Belkin’s WeMo Home Automation wireless modules

 

 

Todd Mares, one of our Application Field Engineers, can’t wait to get his hands on Belkin’s WeMo Home Automation Modules. Want the ability to turn on and off your electronics from the palm of your hand? Then this is the product for you. The WeMo products allow you to monitor your usage and electricity consumption within your home. You can monitor and control your electronics, power, water and Wi-Fi directly from your smartphone or tablet. The ideal gift if you’re trying to cut down and go green this holiday season.

The BTHP11 Wireless Headphones eliminate messy wires and complicated controls, because they have been designed with Bluetooth 4.0, so you can pick up calls and listen to music all in one place. Stuck on a plane for a few hours? No problem. These headphones have a rechargeable battery that last for over 6 hours.

These are some of our favorite gifts for the AV Pro, but what’s on your holiday wish list this season? We’d love to hear what gadgets you’re hoping to find under the tree.
