H3 DIGITAL was established in 2004 as Thailand's first smart home company.
We are a family company and offer a one-stop Smart Home service in Thailand, we specialise in home cinema, multi room audio and lighting control.
The emphasis has always been easy to use systems, professionally designed and engineered - and then expertly supported by us.
We also act as Distributors for a number of products that we think are really exciting.
H3 Digital Timeline
H3 Digital is started as a family business in Karon, Phuket. Our remit is Digital Homes which includes multi room sound systems, conventional audio (stereo) systems, home cinema and lighting control, also initially offering Digital Design for websites and brochures. We become the Thailand and SE Asia (Malaysia, Cambodia and Vietnam) Distributor for Nuvo Technologies multi room music systems and speakers. In February Janet Jackson's breast is briefly exposed by Justin Timberlake during the Super Bowl halftime show
Our Laguna office opens in the Plaza Del Mar development and we become the first Asian Distributor for the Sonos wireless sound system, in the early days Sonos had a handheld controller with a wheel button and only sold the amplified ZP100 (then ZP120) Sonos Connect:Amp and the unamplified ZP80 (then ZP90) Sonos:Connect, ZP stands for Zoneplayer. On June 29th Steve Jobs and Apple releases the much anticipated iPhone, they sell nearly 2 million units in the first 6 months.
An office move sees us transition from our Karon and Plaza Del Mar locations into a single custom built showroom in the Cherngtalay area. Key members of the H3 Digital team become KNX certified, passing examination in Singapore. Nuvo launch their Essentia audio system which is the worlds first Energy Star whole house audio system, consuming less than 1 Watt in standby mode.
