Expert planning. Thoughtful engineering. Passionate construction and lifetime service and support. All of these things are needed to help deliver the best experience to all of our customers. Whether it's welcoming one of our salepeople into your home or business for an in-personal consultation, or carefully planning, engineering and constructing your solution, we take pride in providing the best service possible. From start to finish, you can expect nothing but an exceptional experience from all of us at Automated Lifestyles every time.
The first step to engaging us for your home or office project is to schedule an on-site consultation with us. Someone from our team will meet you at your home or business to discuss what you would like to do, answer any questions you have, review plans, and determine a budget. From there we will create a scope of work based on our conversation that will help us in the next phase of our process — System Design & Engineering.
System Design & Engineering
During system design & engineering, our team is working from construction plans and your approved scope of work to complete a comprehensive design within budget. Along with a full set of design documentation, we are typically collaborating with your builder, designer, and other trades to ensure our work is well thought out and captures any changes as they arise. Through our process, you can feel confident that we’re creating a custom solution that will give you the best experience possible.
Not only will our team engineer your lighting control system, but we also offer lighting design services. During lighting design, we select architectural fixtures and accent lighting, create a layout, and do so in tandem with your lighting control solution. We identify where keypad and dimmer locations will be called out and create lighting scenes to best create a space that is warm and inviting while enhancing the natural beauty of your home.
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 altogether makes all the difference. Given the multi-faceted nature of integrating different sub-systems from audio/video, lighting control, climate, security, networking, and we take a proactive approach and over-communicate every step of the way.
An integral part of our commitment to deliver best in class systems is the diligence and honed skills of our highly trained technical team. With years of education, installation experience, and troubleshooting we are able to implement complex systems that operate easily, efficiently, and are consistently creating raving fans out of clients and design-build partners.
Making sophisticated technology easy to use and simple for any user requires advanced work on the back end. Control systems bring together sub-systems such as audio/video, media, lighting, and more. Each system speaks a different language, but our programmers translate everything together so it speaks one language and can be controlled easily. Even with great equipment, the programming ultimately determines the intuitive operation. Our programmers balance the technical know-how with the human element so it's easy to use.
Once we have completed our work on your system our next step will be to do a demonstration of the finished result followed by a user training with your family to make sure you can easily use the system once we leave. Our systems are intuitive, so while there may be a slight learning curve, you will find you become comfortable with your new system pretty quickly. If you ever have questions, we’re a phone call away.
