Our Company Guarantees Our Services.

It is very important to us to provide the best level service with the most reliable products and programming. In order for us to do that, we must provide and install all core components of your new system to ensure stability within our programming and configurations. Most of the time this means a major overhaul which is not expected. We are sorry that we can not work on every system but we have found our designs and equipment to be much superior to the competition for long term success and functionality for years to come.



This company is incredibly professional. Recently had to do a service call and they were on time and as professional as the first time we first dealt with them. highly recommend!

We have created "grounded" buttons that will disable all wifi and electronics in the children's room until further notice. When you have this much control over the audio, video, wi-fi and security, the possibilities really are endless.

INTEGRATING SINCE 2006

 

 


Here at Smarter Homes we believe that in order to design a perfect integration system, it is important to remember that, "a failure to plan, can be a plan for failure." Which is why we design every job down to the last detail before the foundation is even poured. We provide every customer with a set of color-coded design plans along with a line itemized room-by-room scope of work, or SOW. This SOW will cover every aspect and feature that we will be working to achieve with your upcoming project. 

Entertain your friends and family with technology that also simplifies day-to-day life. Add a universal remote to an existing surround  home theater system. Blow their minds with your whole-house audio system as you control different songs in different rooms by using your mobile device Music app. Lock all of your doors and turn off all your lights from the comfort of your bed using your smart phone. Becoming the master of your home system is just a phone call away.
