Our staff is continually trained on the latest industry trends and products in order to deliver a wide variety of first-class services. Through our wide-reaching capabilities we offer technology solutions entirely tailored to your needs, whether you’re in Reno, Tahoe, Truckee, or beyond.
To create personalized technology solutions for you, we need to know as much as we can about you and your Reno, Crystal Bay or Tahoe-area home. All of our projects begin with a thorough needs analysis. After asking a variety of questions to ascertain your needs and performance expectations, we’ll advise you on the products and solutions that make the most sense for your lifestyle or business. We’ll cover your space room-by-room, in many cases doing a physical walk-through, to better understand how you use each room and the ways you could integrate technology for added comfort and efficiency.
Explore smart technology solutions for residential and commercial renovation or remodeling projects. These allow you to update your existing infrastructure without having to start from scratch or tear down any walls. You can easily incorporate mechanical blinds, lighting and audio video solutions that enhance your everyday activities without requiring a lengthy and intrusive installation processes. Our staff is trained on the particular challenges associated with the design and implementation of retrofit solutions and based on your needs analysis intake, they’ll craft a system that integrates seamlessly with your existing décor and technology.
We take the approved project specifications and interpret them with exacting detail to match all of the capabilities and functionality you expect in your Reno, NV or Truckee, CA, home. At this stage we’ll outline hardware model numbers and prices as well as all the labor needed to execute the job. Backed with Computed Aided Design (CAD) technology and project drawings, our engineering team crafts a comprehensive plan for all technicians and trade partners to follow. These include vital information on low-voltage wiring, looping and grouping of lighting loads, engineering schematics, rack elevations and keypad specifications.
The goal of a professional lighting design is to achieve the right mood in each room of your Truckee or Reno, NV, property. It all starts with that initial needs intake to find out what activities you want to accomplish. Then it’s up to our experts to craft a layered lighting design by selecting the right fixtures and loads. For example, we’ll use ceiling fixtures for overhead lighting, sconces for accent lighting and down lighting in cabinets or tables for specific tasks. We then group your fixtures within dedicated loads for greater control. For example, an “Artwork” load controls all the fixtures geared at showing off the pieces of art in a specific room from one switch or dimmer.
Coordinating the completion of our smart technology projects requires active project management from our staff to ensure protocols are met, design plans are followed and that any as-built documentation is updated whenever new work orders or changes occur. Since different groups may be working on home surveillance, AV and lighting subsystems separately, it’s important to have a dedicated project manager in charge of bringing them all together. Our project managers oversee and communicate with technicians, contractors and subcontractors to ensure they’re following the project design and staying within schedule.
Low-voltage wiring serves as the foundation behind all our integrated technology projects. As part of our project designs we integrate the fiber and copper wiring needed to support any AV, home security, surveillance, lighting control and networking solutions. Our wiring infrastructure accommodates all current system requirements and allows for future technology upgrades in your Reno, Tahoe, or Truckee home. Not only do we take great care to choose the appropriate wire for each application, but we meticulously organize our racks for easy maintenance and upgrades. Different solutions are available for new construction or retrofits of an existing space.
No project is complete without the programming and system configuration needed to create a platform that brings all your technology together. Reliable programming serves as a universal language between your lighting, audio, video, security and more. Each one of our programmers brings their technical expertise to create an effortless control experience via touch screens, keypads, remotes and smart devices. Every job is unique so we will tailor your system interfaces to match your project’s capabilities and desired functionality.
We offer world-class service for all our projects in the form of ongoing maintenance and support to resolve any issues quickly and efficiently. All technology experiences some wear and tear, so we constantly fine-tune your system to ensure it meets all your performance and functionality standards. We offer service plans tailored to your project which include 24/7 remote system management, tech support, and priority response time. We’ll also serve as your technology advisor and let you know when we hear of new technology that may enhance your Reno or Tahoe home’s system performance.
