Services- Standardized practices. Unrivalled results.
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.
To create personalized technology solutions for you, we need to know as much as we can about you. 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 in Arlington, VA or Washington, D.C. 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.
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 security, whole home audio and video, 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.
Design & Engineering
We take the approved project specifications and interpret them with exacting detail to match all of the capabilities and functionality you expect. At this stage we’ll outline hardware model numbers and prices as well as all the labor needed to execute the job. Backed with technical and detailed 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.
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 audio video installation, security, networking, lighting and surveillance capabilities. Our wiring infrastructure accommodates all current system requirements and allows for future technology upgrades in the future. 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.
After the engineering plans are complete, it’s time for the installation to take place. We start with the initial conduit, low-voltage wiring and enclosures. Then our team will install all equipment including displays, keypads and speakers as laid in the original plans. Our staff has multiple certifications needed to know the unique installation requirements for all our manufacturers. They follow the exact design approved by you or your team to deliver an intuitive and reliable system that matches your performance expectations.
Maintenance & Support
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, priority response time and yearly on-site tech reviews. We’ll also serve as your technology advisor and let you know when we hear of new technology that may enhance your system performance.
Our technicians can actively monitor all your network and IP-connected devices from a remote connection. From a centralized performance dashboard they can immediately gauge the status of all your devices. They will see a real-time update on lighting, climate, security and AV components and know immediately if there are issues that need to be resolved. As part of your system monitoring we’ll also conduct regular network performance tests since latency is often a cause for performance issues.
