We can apply our knowledge and expertise to documenting requirements for AV and integrated technology products, materials and services for a proposed project. We can work together with architects and designers to assist in preparing contract documents and construction requirements. Our specifications describe the type and quality of every product required for the project including functionality, installation and finishing.

A smoother construction process is achieved when the technology system design is documented in advance of actual construction. All parties involved in building your home benefit from clearly defined drawings for device location, pre-wire, technical power, schematics, rack elevation, lighting control, motorized window treatments, equipment space planning, video sightlines, requirements for video, and more. We coordinate with your entire design team to reduce confusion and achieve a smooth and efficient project from start to finish.

A smart home automation project takes effective planning, organizing, and allocating resources to make sure it’s completed on time and with the desired result. Additionally, procedures and protocols need to be met and unforeseen problems should be resolved quickly. Our dedicated project managers oversee all details and consistently communicate with the contractor, subcontractors and owner. Job sites are dynamic with many moving parts and having a solid, experienced person responsible for bringing it all together makes all the difference. Given the multi-faceted nature of integrating different sub-systems from residential audio/video systems, lighting control, HVAC control, security, home networking, etc., we take a proactive approach and over-communicate every step of the way. Whether you’re in Melbourne or Interstate, we’re able to manage your smart home automation project from start to finish.

Putting all the parts and pieces together for smart technology and integrated systems needs to be executed with skill, precision, and some finesse. As much as we value our manufacturer partners, different products and brands have nuances that require special know-how and experience to optimize installation and access all the needed functionality. Our trained technicians receive ongoing education and stay up-to-date on the latest standards and best practices. We take pride in executing your system design with quality craftsmanship so it functions as desired and is reliable.

You may have a beautiful, high performance vehicle, but if you can’t easily turn it on or drive it where you want to go, then it’s not as valuable. The same holds true with the user interface for your integrated technology system. Making sophisticated technology easy to use and simple for any user to get a high level of performance requires advanced work on the back end. Control systems continue to bring together more sub-systems from audio/video, media, lighting, blinds, climate, etc.. It’s as if each is speaking a different language and we translate everything together so it speaks one language to you that’s easy to understand. Even if the equipment is properly selected and is robust, the programming effort will determine the intuitive operation. Our programmers balance the technical know-how with the human element so you won’t need a manual filled with lots of instructions whether you’re using a touch screen, keypad, remote, or smart device to control your system.

IMG-8981Our commissioning services allow us to ensure each system we install meets your goals for usability and design, from initial documentation to final optimization. We conduct vigorous testing of all the devices and systems so that we can know with certainty that your technology is operating at peak performance. More importantly, by simultaneously testing the system with numerous technicians we are able to simulate the way it will actually be used by you and your family.

Peace of mind, scheduling maintenance, and optimizing system performance for functionality and energy savings is accomplished with system monitoring services. From a dashboard on a touch screen or a secure software application on a computer or smart device, real time information is accessible to provide status of lighting, temperature, security, and more 24/7 whether you’re there or on the other side of the globe. IP Devices and service provider accounts are effectively managed including information and documents such as warranties and device manuals.

Just as a vehicle needs regular maintenance and over time requires service or replacement of parts, the same is true with smart technology and integrated systems. We provide continued tuning and system adjustments at set time intervals based on your unique system to maximize performance levels. When something goes wrong, which is an inevitable truth about electronics, we will be there to fix it quickly. Plus the fact that constant innovation continues to advance electronic equipment means there may be new features and enhanced performance that you will want whether it’s for the video, music, security or control in your space. That’s why we take a proactive approach to communicating with you about the latest technology that is really important for you to consider and when updates to software and firmware are available. We’re here when you need us and are a trusted advisor you can count on.
