We’re here to help and actually can help provide you with some helpful places as to where to place your security signs. Never be afraid to ask for more security signs from your security company, either!

We’re experts at making any improvement to your home’s security. We can help with entire alarm systems, along with deterrents, such as fully functional camera systems (ie. LTS, Nest, Ring, etc.).

here are a lot of options to choose when it comes to smart lighting. We personally love Savant light bulbs, which work seamlessly with the Savant app. Ketra makes a wonderful lighting system, which features tons of versatility. Philips Hue is one of the most common smart lighting systems and is very affordable. You’ll want to do some research before seeing which one is right for you.  

There’s a large assortment of camera styles and sizes available. They each have their own differences, which can be important when choosing the right system. Things like megapixels and aperture, along with how they change what you do, should be researched ahead of time. Before diving into your camera project, it’s best to figure out if you’d what sorts of features you’d like for your system. 

Both are full security and surveillance systems that allow app-based streaming and control. While Ring is more affordable and offers more camera types and doorbells, Nest does have more when it comes to support and 24/7 video recording. Personally, we prefer the look of the Nest cameras since they blend in with your home. 


Our security and surveillance systems work with a number of different popular systems, including ring, nest, DoorBird, LTS, 2N and more.

Music Anywhere In Your Home

Fill your entire home with amazing sounds as you entertain guests or simply do everyday chores around the house. Thanks to modern streaming services, you’ll have an endless selection of high-quality music at your disposal. Whole-home audio is fun, simple and engaging thanks to a unified smart remote or app that controls it all. This is personalized entertainment at its finest. 


Whether you’re using Dolby-enabled speakers or installing a full Dolby Home Theater system, the placement of the speakers is important. From a single Dolby-enabled soundbar to a full 5.1, 7.1.2 or 9.1 surround sound speaker setup, we can help you plan your home theater. 

Of course! When it comes to home automation, there are multiple systems that allow you to play services like Pandora or Spotify in any room or location you choose. Sonos is one of our favorite app-based systems, but there are multiple to choose from, such as Google’s Home and Amazon’s Alexa. Do some research to see what’s best for your personal needs and wants. 

The popular Art TV models do cost a pretty penny, but are well worth it. It’s important to know where you want to install your Samsung Picture Frame TV, and if that space will benefit from the TV’s artistic additions. Otherwise, it’s probably best to simply install a regular TV if you’re not trying to hide anything.

Screen resolution and aspect ratio are the two most important things to remember when creating a video wall. There are 3 basic ways to make this happen: a video wall controller, daisy-chain or graphic board. The best method will depend on how you plan on using the video wall. 

When it comes to outdoor automation, there are plenty of options to conceal things, such as speakers, wires, etc. Sonance provides a rock speaker model that looks fairly lifelike when placed in the right space. Other brands offer many desirable options, too. 


Partners include, but are not limited to: JBL Synthesis, Sonos, Sonance, Crestron and more!

Set the mood for every activity in your home with app-based shades and lighting controls.


We’re here to help. When installing Lutron keypads in a home, we’ll work with you closely to make sure everything is perfectly set for your everyday needs. Once we have keypads installed with temporary markers, we’ll order permanent engravings, or Palladium keypads, if you’d like an extra luxurious touch in your home. Once they arrive in 3-5 weeks, we’ll install the permanent ones, leaving you to your perfectly set home.

Both options are very flexible to anything you’d like in your home. Lutron offers a bit more in terms of shade design and type, which is useful for homes that require more than on design. Both shades can be controlled by apps, such as Savant, allowing for extra control. Somfy doesn’t require the necessary additional bridge device, making the cost a bit lower than Lutron models.

Zigbee and Z-Wave operate their networks a little differently. Zigbee can support far more devices at any given time, while Z-wave is more limited. While both ensure all your smart home devices work together, the small differences are what can help you choose the right system for your home.

Lutron’s RadioRA is designed for a whole home system. The best part about it is how flexible and scalable the components are. Finding the right authorized installer is the first step to designing your customized RadioRA system.

When it comes to smart lighting, there are a lot of options to choose from. We personally love Savant light bulbs, which work seamlessly with the Savant app. Ketra makes a wonderful lighting system, with tons of versatility. Philips Hue is one of the most common smart lighting systems, and comes at the lowest price. Definitely do some research before seeing which one is right for you!
