ABSOLUTE LIVING

Robert Haecker

ABSOLUTE LIVING

“Invest in your people and your team, and treat them the way you would want to be treated. Do the right thing and it will come back to you tenfold. We have always done that and after 25 years we are very blessed to be where we are.” 

An entrepreneur from an early age, Robert Haecker has come a long way since he started his first business Trixx Skate Shop at age 14. The skateboard and apparel shop, which first rented space inside a mini-mall toy store and eventually grew into a free standing building, had a regional following in the days before the Internet, and solidified Haecker’s desire to become a business owner.  

When he entered the Ball State Entrepreneurship Program, Haecker parted ways with the skate shop and took a side job at an audio-visual retail store. He began to offer personal delivery and installation as part of his sales pitch, and the idea for TRIPhase was born. He wrote the business plan while attending Ball State, and initially opened the business in Cicero, renting a small building with an office below and a showroom above. To make ends meet, Haecker slept in the showroom theatre on a pull out sofa, and his wife Shanna, who was still attending Ball State at the time, drove back and forth to handle the office. “We wouldn’t be where we are today without Shanna,” Haecker says, adding that she has been an integral part of TRIPhase since the beginning.  

Haecker loves the ever-changing world of the technology industry, and has carved a niche with TRIPhase, offering turnkey, white glove, concierge style services for complete home automation and design. He remains involved with the Ball State Entrepreneurship Program as a mentor and board member, and in 2022 TRIPhase will host the program’s Evaluation Day and alumni reception.  

TRIPhase Technologies is located at 10960 Bennett Parkway in Zionsville. You can find them online at triphase-tech.com or follow @TRIPhaseTechnologies on Facebook and triphasetech on Instagram.  

SMART...SIMPLIFIED

TRIPHASE TECHNOLOGIES, WITH ROBERT AND SHANNA HAECKER

SMART...SIMPLIFIED

The new Zionsville showroom says it all, with room after room of new and newer home technology tempting all the senses. Luxurious home theatres with advanced audio and video capabilities (complete with candy counters and popcorn carts), smart desks and bars with secret compartments, speakers masquerading as works of art (such as an Ente SoundTile for your Sonos® system), layered lighting schemes that can change to fit whatever mood you’re in…this is the forefront of home intelligence, and it’s right here in the Midwest. 

Some of it seems straight out of science fiction, but everything in the showroom is available in real life. The name TRIPhase, however, did come from the 1990’s science fiction movie, Extreme Measures, starring Gene Hackman. A coincidence perhaps, but it stuck and still fits, Shanna says, noting the three phases of a TRIPhase system installation: pre-wire, trim out and final programming. 

Robert wrote his business plan for TRIPhase while attending Ball State’s nationally ranked entrepreneurship program. Shanna, also a Ball State graduate, has been helping him steer the ship since before they were married, and they have been in this business for 25 years (literally in the business, sharing a home with their first showroom in the beginning). TRIPhase has evolved, adapting and integrating with the ever-shifting tech trends. But while Robert and Shanna are nimble amidst change, their commitment to quality and to their customers remains constant. “It’s been a wonderful ride,” Shanna exclaims. “It’s about the people, it’s about the industry, it’s about the technology and the way that people can live through their homes with what we offer that makes it so rewarding.” 

Shape-Shifting Speakers - A project by Triphase with Leon Speakers

Shape-Shifting Speakers - A project by Triphase with Leon Speakers

Nestled in a 50-acre wooded property in the Indianapolis metropolitan area, the owners of this Colorado-inspired dream home had a clear design vision for their space — and a long list of technology to integrate into multiple rooms throughout. As is often the case, the tech-savvy husband and his interior designer wife had to find a middle ground that would accommodate everything on their technology wishlist while not interfering with the design of the space. Wanting their home to feel like a mountain lodge getaway, it was important to keep technology as unobtrusive as possible to maintain a sense of serenity in the space.

The couple enlisted local AV integration firm TRIPhase Technologies of Zionsville, Ind., to help design a whole-home AV system that would deliver on both sound and style. While off-the-shelf products made sense for many of the rooms, there were a couple of areas that called for a custom solution to better blend in with some of the home’s signature design features. TRIPhase selected Leon Speakers and had things such as a custom TV Frame crafted to blend into this homeowner's decor beautifully. For more information, ask us!

Indianapolis’ First Downtown Luxury Auto Club and Event Space Gets Speedy & Safe Control

When Indianapolis residents Mike and Liz Simmons couldn’t find a local automobile storage facility to warehouse their collection of classic, exotic and luxury cars, they took it upon themselves to build the city’s only premier automobile storage and social club, SILO Auto Club & Conservancy

With the goal of creating a convenient, modern downtown space where local auto enthusiasts can gather, host events, and securely store valuable vehicles, Simmons hired electronics integrator TRIPhase Technologies to oversee the interior design and outfit the 30,000-square-foot location with a full complement of smart technologies. Now the building’s security, surveillance, door locks, multi-zone audio and video, lighting and even motorized window shades are all fully automated. The facility has TVs throughout the entry and other spaces, along with an ELAN Control System for one-touch access to all electronic systems. For more information, ask us!

TRIPhase: Formula For A Model Franchise

TRIPhase: Formula For A Model Franchise

When Super Bowl-champion head coach Tony Dungy announced his retirement from the Indianapolis Colts, the team didn’t really have to sweat about its future. Assistant coach Jim Caldwell took a promotion to the helm, and with future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning and other key pieces still in place, the team didn’t skip a beat.

In fact, the Colts won their first 14 games in 2009 under Caldwell and eventually reached their second Super Bowl in four seasons (though they lost to the New Orleans Saints)….
