Reviews for Pasadena wiring installation and concealing professionals

I had a Nest Hello doorbell camera installed. I didn’t have an existing doorbell to provide power to my Nest so installing it myself was beyond my capabilities. I highly recommend Vincent. He did a professional job for a fair price. He ran the wiring from the attic to the front the door without any visible cables showing. He was communicative throughout the process and cleaned up after he was finished. It came out looking really good and functioning properly. I plan to hire Vincent in the near future for some more electrical work I need done.

I reached out to Next Level AV to install hardwired CAT6a Ethernet ports and Ubiquiti gear in a newly-purchased home. Since I already had an idea of where I wanted the ports, Wi-Fi access points, camera, and doorbell, I provided a rough floorplan with locations marked. Luis responded almost immediately, offering to come do a walkthrough the very next morning. He was very polite and informative, giving feedback on install locations & explaining the range of help that Next Level could provide (from just running the wires, to installing wall plates and patch panels, to fully configuring the Ubiquiti equipment end-to-end). By that afternoon he had a full estimate ready for labor and materials. They use a very professional digital invoicing system and take credit card. We worked together to procure the gear we needed, as many of the Ubiquiti products in our plan were out-of-stock. On the first day, Luis' team of 3 spent over 12 hours on-site running and terminating the wires. He came back on two other days to finish running the camera wiring (which was in a difficult location) and to install the patch panel, switch, network appliance, and camera. They did a great job avoiding drywall cuts as much as possible, and none of the holes were still visible after the drywall repairman came around. I asked them to pull some fiber (unarmored patch cables) along with the CAT6a for future-proofing, and they were very careful with them -- all the fiber runs tested successfully. What I was most impressed by was the tidiness of the patch panel area that Luis set up: he installed a bracket that neatly covers the hole where the 24 Ethernet and 8 fiber cords enter from the attic. A separate plate was installed for AC power cords supplying the switch and network appliance, and Luis even put in an extra electrical box for future use since I mentioned wanting to eventually add a server rack in the closet below the patch panel area. (Note that in the photo, the ugly bottom fiber panel is entirely on me -- please ignore! I'm replacing it to match the much nicer one Luis got for the Ethernet ports. Also, in hindsight I wish I chose a switch with one row of 24 ports, rather than two rows of 12. Or as Luis suggested, two brush plates to wire the bottom row through the back of the rack. He is super knowledgeable about rack wiring and Ubiquiti gear!) Anyways, I highly recommend Next Level AV; they did a beautiful job with my install of 5x(4 CAT6a, 1 fiber) wall drops, 2x(1 U6-Lite, 1 fiber) ceiling access points, 1x(1 U6-LR, 1 fiber) ceiling access point, 1xG4 Pro camera, G4 doorbell, UDM-Pro network appliance, and USW-Pro-24-PoE switch.
