WHO WE ARE WE’RE CHANGING THE WAY YOU LIVE IN YOUR HOME Meet Jaclyn and Donnie Boutwell, a powerhouse duo who own Media Systems, a luxury home technology integration firm in Houston. As home technology advisors, they design and build the most advanced and easy to use automation systems around. Jaclyn and Donnie believe that the technology in your home should be easy to use, beautifully designed and unbelievably reliable.  With their team, they provide a white glove luxury service to a distinguished clientele.  Donnie’s Uncle, Steve Driskell, founded Media Systems in 1980 and over the years the family business has developed a solid relationship with homeowners, architects, designers and builders in Houston.  In new construction they help architects, builders, and designers navigate through constantly evolving technologies. In existing properties they can modernize systems without having to start over.  They can make it work. Donnie and Jaclyn are the ‘go-to’ experts for home technology.   They’re often asked what it’s like to work together.  Jaclyn says, “We always worked well together.  Working together in business has just been a natural thing for us.” They have found a platform among their peers to help other couples learn how to make a marriage sizzle.

MEET THE BOUTWELLS Jaclyn and Donnie have a hands on, face to face approach for design and consultation. They are experts at finding solutions especially for couples who have different priorities for their project.  Their flexible approach allows homeowners find a solution that fits their specific needs and budget. “Not everyone has the same priority for their home.  Some feel like the WiFi and network is the most important thing, while others are more concerned about security and surveillance.  Our job is to get to know people and what they care about.  Then we help them design a system that only does what they care about it doing.” Donnie

ART DECO LANDMARK TRANSFORMED INTO PREMIER HOME THEATER SHOWROOM Houston-based Media Systems Inc. acquired this 10,000 square-foot Prohibition Era landmark in 2002. Now a showroom/demo space, there are multiple home theaters that vary in size, built to show off the versatility of Crestron solutions.
