Digital Home Systems was founded in 1999 by Tom Manna, a lifetime musician, technology enthusiast, and seasoned sales and marketing executive. With a keen understanding of what makes a first rate audio and video experience, Tom turned his passion into a vocation.

Along with a talented team of music industry professionals and fellow techies with a high aptitude for craftsmanship, Tom established DHS to meet the exacting technology needs of discriminating clients that shared his high aesthetic standards. (Tom’s earliest clients came from the music and film industries, and remain to
this day.)

 Within a few short years, Digital Home Systems earned a reputation for providing a sophisticated digital platform reflecting an unparalleled level of performance, simplicity, and elegance.  Today, DHS’ wizardry can be found in distinctive properties throughout New York’s Westchester County, Fairfield County in Connecticut, NYC, and the Hamptons.

John JelLiffe

Business Development Manager

John is somewhat of a classic tale of starting off as a small remodeling firm specializing mostly in siding and windows and grew into a company that built award winning custom built single family homes in Fairfield County CT and Westchester County NY. Literally hundreds of remodeling projects from 1987 to 2001 at which time we switched to building from the ground up both on spec and for clients.
