Services

Our people and the services we provide define our firm. We take pride in delivering a first class client experience and work diligently to keep our staff trained and focused on always exceeding our client’s expectations. Our role as technology advocate begins with initial client discovery meetings and always take us through the long term service and care of completed installations. From smart home and commercial automation to lighting control and networking, we provide the best possible experience to our clients in Morro Bay, Carmel, Isla Vista and the surrounding areas.

service design engineering

Design & Engineering

Comprehensive and thoughtful system design and engineering up front leads to the best balance of functionality, reliability and aesthetics. 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 in advance. We coordinate with our in-house engineering team, architects, interior designers, general contractors, and affected sub-contractors.

services lighting design

Lighting Design

As a licensed electrical engineering firm, our in-house lighting experts will create an efficient and elegant lighting solution that illuminates your space for function and aesthetics. Our designs comply with Title 20 and Title 24 requirements. We consult and collaborate with architects, interior designers and general contractors. You’ll receive documentation for fixture specifications, placement, and electrical plans. Combing our technical acumen and sensitive design techniques the light will beautifully elevate the experience of your space.

service consultation

Consultation

With our extensive experience providing smart technology and integrated systems we are able to provide thoughtful discussion and valuable insight about what products and solutions work best to achieve a desired result for you. We advise on what brands and technologies are reliable and which play well with others. Get up to speed on the latest innovations and trends and have your questions answered. With our collaborative approach expect to get ideas and creative suggestions on how to incorporate technology to enhance your life at home or for a business. We can even let you know what to avoid or where to proceed with caution, which can save time, money and frustration.

service project specification

Project Specification

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 prepare contract documents and construction requirements. Our specifications describe the type and quality of every product required for the project including functionality, installation and finishing. Codes and standards are addressed where appropriate.

services project management

Project Management

A smart technology project takes effective planning, organizing, and allocating resources to make sure it’s completed on time and with the desired result at fit and finish. 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 to bring it all together makes all the difference. Given the multi-faceted nature of integrating different sub-systems from audio/video, lighting control, climate, security, networking, etc., we take a proactive approach and over-communicate every step of the way.

services maintenance support

Maintenance & Support

Just as a vehicle needs regular maintenance and over time require 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 solution 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.

services system monitoring

System Monitoring

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.

services programming

Programming

If you may have a beautiful, high performance vehicle but 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, shading, 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.

services lighting design

System Documentation

A smoother construction process is achieved when the technology system design is documented in advance of actual construction. All parties involved in building your space benefit with 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 niches, and more. We coordinate with your entire design team including architects, designers, contractors, and consultants to reduce confusion and achieve a smooth and efficient project from start to finish.

services as-built documentation

As-Built Documentation

At the completion of the project we will produce and provide a clear and concise final set of as-built drawings of the integrated technology system. This is critical because a constructed building almost never corresponds exactly to the original design drawings and becomes a valuable asset for any property. The documentation includes all changes that have been made to the original construction drawings, including notes, modifications, and any other pertinent information. Accurate as-built documents help with maintenance and future service calls saving time, money, and frustration down the road. Remodeling or upgrading later becomes significantly easier with exact conditions of how the system is implemented in space.
