Hired for a pretty straightforward plug install - 240V 30W dryer outlet in the garage for DC fast charging on an EV, price was very competitive and all the wiring and outlets look professional.
Brian H.
Outstanding work. It has been a longtime dream of mine to have my home wired for networking and HI-TECH made it a reality. Everything was installed neatly and without issue and exceeded my expectations!

Don did an awesome job wiring all the cat6 throughout most of my rooms, and an access point in the hallway. Don uses the best tech to get the job done as efficiently and cleanly as possible. We had a challenging location to fish a wire from the second level down to the first, Don used a small camera between the drywall, and was able to fish it down smoothly, avoiding water pipes and electrical wires. I will continue to hire and recommend Hi Tech Installs for all future projects.

Great wiring install, which was somewhat complicated due to the position of outlets. Don did a good job trouble-shooting the issue and letting me know what he was doing every step of the way. I will certainly use again.

I had my home wired for ethernet by Hi-tech Installs. They got here right when they said they would and did a phenomenal job. If I ever need more of this type of work done, I'll definitely be calling them!

Don was very responsive, professional and provided a great service. I contacted him to have 4 new wired internet lines. He explained the differences between CAT6, CAT7 and CAT8 and provided a reasonable estimate. During the installation we realized that because of the way the house is built my original idea wouldnt work, but he was able to get similar results by using existing phone line and cable wiring. It turned out to be a much more simple process, and he was honest revising the original estimate. Overall fantastic experience, will definitely keep him in mind for future wiring needs, highly recommended!

Phil is extremely knowledgeable, provides impeccable service, and is an all around great guy. After several hours spent mounting my TV, drilling holes to conceal the wires behind my walls, installing surround sound speakers, upgrading my WiFi equipment, installing a second WiFi access point to allow incredible WiFi speed no matter where I am.... and going the extra mile to ensure all the unsightly wires are concealed...I will never look to anyone but Phil for my electronic/IT needs. He did THAT good of a job. If you’re looking for someone who is honest, knowledgeable, and does clean/quality work.. Phil’s your man.

Travis ran 5 ethernet drops from my office to various corners of our home for security cameras. The installation was flawless. The wires are well hidden and the camera placement provides perfect coverage. Travis was in and out in just a few hours. TJK charged a fraction of what we were quoted from other Austin installers. I will definitely be recommending them to friends who are looking for similar services.

Aaron placed a subwoofer RCA cable to the other side of my living room that required routing through the attic. Very clean install. Cleaned up all the dust created inside the house and placed back the attic insulation where it was before. Will be using him for any future wiring needs

I have an old house that was remodeled before I bought it and the previous owner didn’t wire for network, so this was going to be a challenge. Don arrived on-time, quickly surveyed the situation, drafted out a plan, talked me thru it, let me provide input, and he dove into the installation. Very professional job. Super happy with the outcome.

I've wanted to wire my home for ethernet for a while. Reached out to ACA and Chris came out and gave me a quote that was competitive. They then showed up on time on the day of installation, knocked out the job in a timely manner, coordinated the repair of the drywall and even went to Home Depot to match the paint colors for me as I didn't have the matching paint to re-paint my ceiling / walls. All in all, very impressed and 100% would use them again.

I had an excellent experience with ACA Electronics for wiring ethernet cables throughout my home. They were responsive when I reached out and quickly gave me both a competitive quote and an appointment to scope the project. The initial scoping took all of ten minutes and they detailed what they were going to do, how they were going to do it and the pros and cons. They provided details and walked me through all the steps they would be taking to achieve the vision I had. My home doesn't have attic access to the all of the parts of the home that needed wiring due to a vaulted ceiling but they provided a creative solution that achieved everything I was hoping for. The arrived promptly on the scheduled service day, efficiently went about their work, and communicated again what they were going to do and how. The quality of their work was excellent when I reviewed it and they were patient and friendly with all of my questions. We haven't had any problems with the system they have installed. I will definitely be reaching out to them for my future electrical projects.
