Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: We're a family-owned local business whose mission is to simplify lives through technology. We may not be your cheapest option because we will do the job correctly and to code! We love to deliver user-friendly solutions that work. We specialize in making your spaces at home secure, convenient, and custom integrated with your weekly routines. We specialize in a full line of Audio/Video, Distribution, Networking, Lighting, Automation, and Security. We can turn any home into a smart home. Let us automate your daily routines, from your lighting and climate to your media systems and everything in between. We are authorized for ELAN, Lutron, Sony, LG, Denon, Yamaha, Samsung, SONOS, and many other top brands. We can handle any project from a simple TV installation with all of the wiring hidden in the wall, to a full smart house with audio and video distribution and full integration of security, surveillance cameras, HVAC, smart door locks, lighting, irrigation, and shades all integrated into a single user friendly app that runs on your iPad, iPhone, or Android devices. Service calls are billed at $250 for the first hour and $150 an hour in 15 minute increments after that. We specialize in high end custom integration of all your systems. Unfortunately we do not work with entry level consumer systems like Linksys, Netgear, Google Home, Ring, Nest, Logitech Harmony, Bose, Amazon TV mounts, Etc. We repair home theater systems by diagnosing and replacing broken components. We do not fix TV's, Receivers, Speakers, Etc. Generally the cost to repair exceeds the cost of replacement. If you are looking for repair of the device and not the system as a whole please reach out to an electronics repair company. If you need wiring done, we do charge a minimum so we will not be the cheapest on a single wiring run. Please keep this in mind before reaching out to us. Thumbtack does not allow us to filter out these small jobs yet.

Wiring Installation

I contacted Southland Smart Home because I wanted to upgrade our home to a wired network while some other construction was happening. Eric responded quickly and was able to really explain what would need to be done. He happened to have an opening and he and his assistant Kevin were able to come over the next day for a full install. Our WiFi speed was limited before despite using a mesh network but our speeds have doubled now because Eric knew exactly how to hook everything up. Eric and Kevin were both friendly and professional and could not have been easier to work with. Highly recommended!

Thank you for your kind words! It was a pleasure helping you wire your home! Your home has such unique construction and it was a challenge but I'm overjoyed we were able to get wiring everywhere you needed it without having to cut any holes in the walls!

Wiring Installation

Like a lot of families we’re in the position of facing a new school year with both parents working from home and both kids studying remotely. Taking everyones needs into account we decided to look for a way to improve the network and have more ethernet access points throughout the house. We looked at a few options. Erik at Southland Smart Home got back to us very quickly. He came the next day with his colleague Kevin to come up with a plan. We have an older home that can be difficult to work with, Erik took the time to look at it from top to bottom and figure out the best way to achieve what we wanted. He and Kevin worked really well together coming up with ideas and creative solutions to tackle the job. He showed us a clear and organized breakdown of the man hours he expected it would take, the hardware needed and all costs. We decided to go ahead and scheduled for the next day. Erik and Kevin turned up exactly on time, they worked cleanly and efficiently throughout the day and were very mindful that we were both working and in meetings. We had a less than an hour of downtime while they connected the new system. Despite the difficulty of the house the job went smoothly and by 6pm we had a blazing fast network. Before they left, Erik took the time to install an App on our phones to give us control over the network. He made sure everyones connections were up and running and did speed tests in each room of the house. We couldn’t be happier with the work and highly recommend Southland Smart Homes.

Thank you for your kind words! Your home was definitely tricky due to its construction and the need for two different VPN office connections as well as wireless in 5 distinct areas of the home. It was a pleasure helping you and your family get the stable and fast network you all need to function during this difficult time.

With two adults working from home and two high school students on zoom all day, we needed a much more robust home network. Eric did a great job installing and explaining a network that lets all of us access high speeds at the same time, anywhere in our house or yard. We’re very happy with the new system.

Eric was wonderful! He set up two of our TVs the same day that we reached out! We asked him to mount one of the TVs on our fireplace, and he was able to do it even though we discovered there were 2 veneers. He was knowledgeable and so skilled; I would recommend him to everyone!

Thank you for your kind review! That was a challenging fireplace install, but I'm so happy we were able to get you the exact look you wanted and a super clean install!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We are committed to delivering the best experience possible within our client's budgets. WE WILL NOT PERFORM WIRING THAT IS NOT TO CODE. Many providers on ThumbTack run extension cords inside of walls to cut costs. This is not only against code, but very dangerous. If we bid a job, we will show up and do the work to completion without leaving or rescheduling because we weren't properly equipped. We can beat the pricing on mid range and high end TVs and gear from the big box stores. We are licensed dealers for Sony, LG, Samsung, Denon, Yamaha, Speakercraft, Niles, Panamax, SONOS, and many more industry leading brands. We use premium network cabling and connectors, and use the proper type of wire for each application (interior, outdoor, and direct burial). Our installations are designed to last for decades. While our hourly rate may be higher than some of our competitors, our overall job price is in line with theirs. We show up with many thousand feet of cabling and all the proper tools to ensure that we get the job done quickly and efficiently. We have the ability and knowledge to work on many cabling runs simultaneously rather than one at a time. This is far more efficient and saves you money at the end of the job. We do not do single drop wiring jobs, we cannot perform these small services at a competitive price.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We discuss the scope of work and identify the best solution to deliver the experience our customer is looking for.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a former IT Manager, and hold certifications from ELAN, Fluke, Lutron, Microsoft, and others. I have worked in the A/V industry since 2008 and have worked with numerous control platforms.
