Kinkead Audio and Video Expands to New Showroom

Business owner Gene Kinkead has expanded his locally owned and operated Kinkead Audio and Video into a new space on FM 2353, in the old Fabulous Finds building.
Kinkead started his business in 2008 after seeing a local need for AV service amidst the ever-changing technology. The showroom is still a work in progress, but Kinkead plans to be able to demo most of the home services offered by his company, which is a one-stop shop for all service and installation of traditional home theater.
Kinkead Audio and Video also offers complete smart home services, including remote control of all aspects of a home’s electronics from miles away. That capability recently came in handy for a client from the Dallas area, who noticed that the temperature at his PK home had climbed to 87 degrees in a matter of hours. The customer was able to contact a repairman to go to his home and make the necessary air conditioning repairs, which saved the system from further damage and made an emergency trip by the client to the lake unnecessary.
Kinkead Audio and Visual has expanded to offer other services that are a must at any home, especially a lake house. The company has added home monitoring, cameras, video doorbells and custom shades to its list of services, and it’s been the growth at Possum Kingdom that has allowed Kinkead to expand his services to other areas.
Kinkead’s business offerings now also include complete property management of personal vacation homes or short-term rentals, including housekeeping, handyman services and seasonal prep of local properties. The installation and service of home theater systems is still the core of his business, but technological advances have allowed him to branch into many other products.
Kinkead Audio and Video’s showroom is located at 310 N. FM 2353. If Kinkead isn’t at the showroom, he and one of his five staff members are probably out on an installation, so give him a call at (940) 682-6223 for a tour of his new location and a demonstration of all the home services his company provides.
