Introduction: Unfortunately , Covid is not over!
We will be completing Covid quarantine through November 29th. I'm good for now but exposed briefly, testing daily. This is in spite of 5 Shots.
We are booked through Mid to late January and will be completing open ticket items at first available over the next few weeks.
Thank you for your patience.
Stay Safe & Happy Holidays
Avery Martinez for Gistek Networks, Inc.
GISTEK Networks is a 20+ year old tech company specializing in Simplified Internet Technologies.
We fix the Internet at your home or business, WiFi, Cat6 or Coax cabling, Video surveillance systems and cameras. We do Smart Home Integration, custom data closets and work from home (WFH) and business network consulting.
Recently we have built or fixed complete internet and WiFi networks for a San Diego ESPN studio, a mobile South Bay studio and the WiFi POS system for a T-Mobile store.
Now Installing SpaceX Starlink in So Cal from San Diego, Laguna Beach, Palos Verdes, Hollywood, Palm Springs and rural areas. We do difficult high point eve mounts, exterior to interior penetration and seal and integration into your home or business network as primary or backup connection. See Starlink pictures in my profile. We've installed satellite and point to point wireless for over 20 years.
We provide both commercial and home technology services regularly fixing or improving home Internet, cabling and WiFi.
We have fixed the wiring in many new homes allowing them to connect WiFi at Max speeds without adding mesh or extenders. This is needed for Zoom or Netflix to avoid timeouts. It's inexpensive and may qualify under your new home warranty for reimbursement.
We've also done several large homes with full home WiFi, also delivering max Wifi speeds up to 1Gb. We know the carriers and fix many connectivity issues daily.
We are Covid-19 safe, 3x & quad vax'd and wear masks onsite as requested.
We are also a mutually referred service to and from Best Buy. We will help you select replacement Audio or TV components and then install for you. We have a central rep, you pay Best Buy directly and pickup or ship to you from any store. Best of both worlds.
Simplifying Remote Controls - We are senior friendly and patient in helping people transition to simplified controls for their TV and Audio needs.
Ditch the Dish & TV boxes!
Many people are still using Spectrum coax cable boxes for their TV or WiFi cubes. $5 month each. You don't need these either and you can cut your monthly cost by returning these devices. We can help you make the digital jump to Internet based TV services, the quality improves too.
We have worked in new, remodeled and custom homes including vineyard and ranch homes doing extended gate cameras and outdoor WiFi coverage.
We use plastic floor covering, booties and vacuum regularly! You'll see it in some pictures.
GISTEK has installed several hundred TVs in hotels and homes, regularly moving power and hiding all cables, with many very large TVs installed indoors and in patios with competitive rates, especially for multi TV installs. 5 in a day is normal.
Hiding cables - We regularly hide cables and add power behind TV's. To do this we usually have to cut drywall to run the cables and power. Sometimes more than one cut (4" x 4" drywall cut) is required. On completion, we reinstall the cut piece or install a blank plate. The drywall is patched and sanded smooth. Texturing and painting is not included in typical installs as most people are comfortable with this task. Texture and painting is not considered as part of the job.
Audio is a passion, we love great sound and have completed many custom projects for homes, hotels, restaurant's and larger venues with mixed media input (Spotify, YouTube right from your phone,) as well as mic and PA Systems.
We have a long track record of successful installs and performance upgrades. We carry a $2M liability policy and will provide additional named insureds for projects over $2k on request.
We work regularly with Spectrum, Frontier, ATT & Comcast moving or updating their services.
10% Senior Discount
No charge for site surveys prior to the job ($500 minimum,) and will do a free Zoom or FaceTime in advance to give you a prelim quote for OC, IE, SD, Riverside and South Bay-Long Beach areas. $75 survey charge for LA traffic but credited on contracting. We work regularly in LA Hollywood areas.
I personally visit your home or job site prior to and during your project to insure the best service experience.
Engaging us - we send you a quote, make adjustments to meet your needs and budget. When we're agreed, we invoice you, you pay half by credit card, Zelle or Venmo to lock down your install date, balance paid on completion.
Acceptance Terms - We don't charge for site surveys and deal with SoCal traffic daily. Further due to traffic and other projects we might be on, it's difficult to lock down a specific appointment time and use 2-4 hour windows for surveys and installations. We try to be fair to all and it's necessary to disclose this to avoid dissatisfaction if we are tardy due to completing another project.
our business is fluid and abstract, meaning we don't know how long it may take to resolve a technical issue
or fix a bad cable (we didn't install, it happens regularly.)
If we are running late we will text you (if we can ) don't be shy about calling. We do use it to call out as long as we have 3 bars or more.
One more item, since we don't charge for surveys, it's not reviewable. Only paid services are reviewable. we only charge for paid projects.
If you agree to work with us, these are our terms. We cover So Cal so we might cover 100 miles to reach you and if we can't make our window, we will contact you, as we don't want to inconvenience you.
