Although the job took much longer" than he anticipated, he communicated with me and was extremely helpful.

Home automation

Home automation systems are the next generation of high-end consumer electronics. They allow users to program default settings for their home that match their own personal preferences and remotely manipulate certain appliances via smartphones and other remote technologies.

I was referred to
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
from a neighbor after I had already met with another company. I was very impressed with their demonstration that they did to show me what the lights looked like on my house, the previous company did not do that. What really made me decide to use them was the "complete package", being able to add my porch lights and coach lights to the automatic timer and replacing switches in my home that I could control from my IPhone. I really felt like they were professionals with the quality of products and extra services. I was very happy with the installation and their employees were very polite. I feel like the price difference between them and the other company was justified with the professionalism, and I would pay for it again.

Excellent. These guys were professional, efficient and fast. They offered great advice on tv placement and also reinstalled my mount which had been installed incorrectly. They were very tidy and when they left it was like they were not even there. They did not end the job until everything was perfect. Definitely recommending these guys and will use them again.

Mr.
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his partner preformed brilliantly encountering several obstacles both in the indoor and outdoor projects. They overcame the obstacles and did not raise the price. They even returned later to adjust and stabilize the outdoor lighting at no extra charge.
I would definitely use them for all my electrical needs and I would highly recommend them to all my friends.

I spoke to the provider with our requirements and was steered somewhat into how things should be done. I did insist how I wanted things to be done and the provider accepted this. This is due to past experience in commissioning a home automation project.
The provider revisited my home with some colleagues to measure up and quantify the work required for the job. I then received an eye-watering quote of $72,000 which in my opinion was significantly overpriced. Upon scrutinising the quote, I discovered that many of the items included had a
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
-up of 100% (doubled in price), and many around that figure. The items in question were easily available through websites or on Amazon.
The quote included items which I had explained we did not need, such as a media server, some internet switches and other equipment.
Upon contacting the provider by email, it became more and more apparent that the provider did not like the fact that his quote was being scrutinised (although at that price, I'd be amazed at who wouldn't question it). I explained to the provider that although I am happy to pay fairly for time and expertise, I'm not happy to pay inflated
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
-ups on readily available products. I also then explained to the provider that we are now considering an alternative system from a well known automation manufacturer (on sales in Home Depot and Lowes) and would they be interested in installing it.
The arrogant response included the phrase 'We are not interested in a science experiment. It is nice to hear that with a little research on the Internet you are an expert at a trade that I have spent 15 years to become proficient at.' - I have retained the email thread for my records.
We still have a budget of $30,000 for this project which has now been downsized and I'm bewildered as to why a contractor would take this attitude with me and expect such a quote to not go through some form of scrutiny. I will be avoiding this provider for any future work at this, or any other home I may move to, and I will recommending to my friends and colleagues that they do the same.

This provider is an authorized
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and Home Connect authorized dealer. Most of my alarm and automation parts were purchased before I had a relationship with the company. This review is for the excellent service I received from
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. All of my dealings with this company has been with Sterling
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. Anytime (and I am talking quite a few times), Sterling has helped me get connected and with programming of my system. My system is a Vista 21ip with both wired and wireless sensors. I buy self monitoring from
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
and completely monitor my system via Total Connect using SMS and Push notifications to my wireless devices (iPad, iPhone, etc.). Anytime that I encountered an error with my programming or need help adding devices, all I need to do is send Sterling an email and he replies promptly (must of the time in mins or hours). Just yesterday I had a problem with my wireless Ademco Smoke Detectors. If I would purposely set them off with smoke to test them, the detectors would sound an alarm, however it wouldn't activate my sirens and talk to my keypads. Sterling connected to my panel within an hour of sending my email and just fixed it, then emailed me back and told me exactly what I did wrong with the programming, and told me how to program it myself if I decide to add more detectors in the future. Let me say and I am totally be honest with you... I DO NOT WRITE REVIEWS. I DO NOT TALK TO TELEMARKETERS so me writing this review is because of my satisfaction with Sterling and business. If you need any alarm parts or monitoring for your alarm, I recommend you go with
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
. I feel so blessed that I found this company. It was just by
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
in searching the Internet. Oh let me mention something else, Sterling has several You Tube videos that walk you step by step in setting up various parts of the
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
Alarm System. I have to say, I watch a lot of these videos. I found most to be very helpful.
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
offers full monitoring and self monitoring packages. I purchased the self monitoring and automation package. I have total control of my system (which I love) and it is very reliable. By the way, good luck in finding a company that provides self monitoring. The plans are very reliable and you are billed monthly. There is no pressure and no contracts. This is an honest to god true review. Take my word for it. Try it. You can't go wrong.
I hate writing reviews! Thanks

Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
is awesome. He really knows his stuff. He walked into my house and helped me address my needs without over-selling. We changed the speakers and the general system and we are now adding to it. The house sounds great. I am pushing
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
to help me now with the house automation.
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
also did something with installation that I have never really seen before. When he put the speakers into the walls and cut into the dry-wall, he had a vacuum cleaner and cleaned everything up after installation. Other workers have made messes in my house, but they have never cleaned up after themselves. This is the kind of detail that really sets
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
apart. I do not hesitate giving him a fantastic recommendation.

We originally paid
Milwaukee Home Automation Contractors Provider Name Locked
~$1500 to purchase and program two remotes. They worked fine for a year, but when we changed set top boxes from Verizon, they charged us ~$1500 to reprogram for the new set top box. That was as much as we originally paid to purchase and program them. They completely reset the remotes to factory settings, reprogrammed them, and charged by the hour to do it. They had to come back three time to fix problems! Looked to me like a make work program. I would have made the changes myself, except that the software necessary to make the changes is not available. I will never own a remote that I can't program myself. If I need to make another change, I will purchase two new remotes that I can program, and program them myself! I will never use

again!

The installation went fine. Problems developed. You have to beg them to come back and fix them. They do not answer the phone and they avoid returning to fix problems.
