Areas of Expertise:
Smart Home Automation:
Smart home automation offers the latest in security system technology, providing a way for homeowners or business owners to monitor their security through a smart device or home base or hub control panel. Automation syncs both security system components and other smart home features, such as thermostats. From a security system app, users can control their smart locks, window and door sensors, receive notifications regarding carbon monoxide and heat sensors, and more. Smart home automation systems may be connected via wired or wireless systems and generally work alongside full security systems. They may be self-monitored or professionally monitored.
Home Theater Systems:
A home theater system combines a range of home entertainment features to recreate the theater experience. Some of these features include surround sound, lights, TVs, DVD or Blu-Ray players, and speakers. While all home theater systems include surround sound, not all surround sound systems are used for home theaters. Users may select professional or DIY installation for their home theater system, but professional installation is recommended due to the intricate wiring often involved in these systems. Home theaters may also pair with home automation systems to allow users to control their system via a smart device.

An Intercom is a stand-alone device that allows a one-way or two-way communication. It is a voice communication system used within buildings, homes, apartments, and businesses, functioning independently of the telephone network. Intercoms allow users to identify visitors, enhancing their security systems, generally mounted on a wall, incorporating connections to loudspeaker systems, CCTV, telephones, walkie talkies, and many other intercom systems. Different types of intercom devices will vary according to the nature of the installation and service needed, such as audio and video intercoms, IP intercoms, and custom lobby panels. Intercom systems are more commonly used in residential apartments and office buildings, for a more convenient way of identifying visitors. Professional installers may also provide guidance with intercom systems for the home or building automation. Expert technicians deliver intercom services, such as repairs, new installations, and can even engineer solutions for a more customized communication system.
Access Control Services:
Access control systems are the main hub of security systems, providing access to or denial of entry to a given area. Access control is the combination of hardware and software in a security system that helps secure points of entry. These systems may include a security system’s control panel (its hub or computer), the system reader, and its smart locks/electric locks — as well as the components of these system parts. Typically, these systems require professional installation due to the wiring and connection requirements.
Lighting Installation Services:
Most lighting in homes and businesses are now energy-efficient LED (light-emitting diodes) lights. However, new lighting devices and fixtures should be professionally installed by licensed technicians. A lighting technician can provide installation, repair, and service of all lighting devices, fixtures, and products, for both indoor and outdoor lighting. Lighting technicians may offer regular service contracts for repair and maintenance and even help home and business owners choose optimal lighting solutions.
Low-Voltage Wiring Services:
Low-voltage wiring requires professional installation. Yet it may not require installation from an electrical technician, because it does not carry the same electrical current as high-voltage power outlets, switches, and fixtures in a home. Because of this, many home security system providers may offer to install low-voltage wiring as part of their installation package. Depending on the provider, this service may cover installation, repair, and system replacement.
Smart Lock Installation:
A smart lock is an electromechanical locking device that achieves locking and unlocking operations on a door. It receives instructions from an approved device, such as a smartphone or tablet, using a wireless protocol to complete the authorization process. Smart locks can grant remote access using a mobile app or key fob, without requiring a traditional key. It also monitors access and sends notifications for different events related to the status of the device. Smart locks can enhance security systems while adding convenience and utility to its owner. They are considered an extension of home automation, being also able to work together with a smart doorbell to let the user see who is at the front door. Smart locks are designed to replace traditional bolt locks on a door. Some devices are designed for DIY installation, while others may need a professional installation service. A professional installer will connect the smart lock onto previous mechanical clamps, upgrading simple latches or deadbolts. Many smart locks are battery-operated, while others come with external jacks to hook up to a 9-volt battery, for a more reliable backup power source. The expert technician can get all the installation and network set up, guiding the customer in how to use all the features that come with a smart lock.
