It starts with our first meeting with you, the customer, when we'll discuss exactly what it is that you are looking to accomplish and what it might take to do so. Then, if it’s an existing home or one that’s currently under construction, we'll do a physical walk through of the property to let us see first and the space in which we'll be installing the system. If the home is still in the blueprint phase, we encourage you to let us see the blueprints as early as possible. Often, we can make suggestions for changes that will cost a lot less to do on paper than in wood and drywall. There ' s a $99.99 charge for an existing home walk- through. It's a necessary step in the process of discovering your needs, requirements, and system possibilities, so don' t hesitate to contact us even if you're just starting to think about putting a system in your home.
Planning and Design
Comprehensive and thoughtful system design and engineering up front leads to the best balance of functionality, reliability and aesthetics in the end result. Avoid costly mistakes or change orders, having to do something twice, or tearing up walls once they’ve been closed. Careful attention is given to the numerous details involved with smart technology and integrated systems to ensure they are easy to use and deliver consistent performance and allow for future expansion or upgrades. Everything from wiring infrastructure, hardware location, control device placement, user interface design, power management and blending equipment with architectural elements and interiors is planned out in advance. We coordinate with architects, engineers, interior designers, general contractors, and affected sub-contractors.
After we 've gone over all the system and install - related, we’ll put together a comprehensive proposal l covering what we intend to do and the costs. Of course, we wo n' t just plop the proposal on the des k and expect a yes or no answer. We 'll go over the entire package with you and work with you to make any changes that might be necessary to provide a system that’s the perfect one for your home.
After the installation and finish-out is completed, our installation team will demonstrate the system and teach you and your family how to use and enjoy the system. But our involvement doesn't end there. We're always a phone call away to provide on-going support in case of a system malfunction-or if you simply forget how to do something.
