I have worked in the IT space for over 20 years, across enterprise/data centre networking, vendor management and operations. Throughout that time, I've managed internal staff and external contractors tasked with setting up cabling across office and data centre environments. The work done by the team at Rivas Techgroup was by far the best I have experienced. AJ took his time in ensuring that my (very specific) requirements were understood and actually submitted a design for my review, all whilst offering a far superior price to electricians who quoted for the work. The team who came to my home overcommunicated every step along the way, and I could not be happier! They very quickly developed an understanding of my level of expertise and experience and spoke to me as an equal throughout. All of the commissioned work was delivered as agreed with the utmost transparency and professionalism. Even little things such cable management and tidiness were taken *very* seriously, with every area the team touched being vacuumed afterwards, all rubbish taken away and explicit confirmation that everything worked as expected being completed. I could climb up into my ceiling to run an additional cable drop to carry a few additional things to the patch panel Rivas Techgroup installed, however I'd rather call the team again and have them ensure everything is done properly.

Rivas was fantastic! They ran ~10 network runs and installed several cameras for us and installed a central panel for all our gear. Was especially great working with a company that was familiar with all things Ubiquiti. The runs were challenging but their crew made some great recommendations and did an outstanding job of getting the cable ran throughout our house without having to cut drywall for access. There will always be bumps in a project like this and what sets Rivas apart is their attention to customer service, if you don’t feel good about any part of the install, they make it right. Highly recommend.

I'm super into technology and had been looking to install Ethernet jacks in my home. I had only found out about Ivan and Rivas through other online reviews, all of them excellent, so I hope this adds to the pile of them others see as well. 1) Ivan came for an initial onsite evaluation and explanation of his services and it was clear he was genuinely enthusiastic about the work that he was doing as opposed to other contractors where they may treat it as "just a job"; from explaining what he and his team were capable of doing, even just to geeking about some of the tech I had in my home, it made me feel comfortable about doing business with him. 2) Even being down a normal man in his team, the team that came onsite to do the work was professional, friendly, and really just nice to be around. I only ended up really talking with one of the installers, but from just swapping stories to explaining how the installation was being done, I felt good about having his team in my home. Ivan himself was onsite later in the day both days to inspect work and begin working on installing the UniFi hardware and get the software up and running. On day two, the team stayed into overtime to make sure the work got done. 3) Visually, the work looks great. Two conduits on each side of the house to bring the ethernet cables from the attic to the lower level of the split-level home, all the inside wall jacks look nice and neat. 4) Even though the team was unable to complete two of the wire drops I wanted for logistical reasons involving the architecture of the house, they were kind enough to not only try multiple times, but explain what the blockers were in those cases. (Luckily, I can run one MoCA adapter in the living room- all set there!) Everything I had installed: - 3 UniFi Wireless AC Lite Access Points - Four Ethernet wiring drops with two ports each - UniFi CloudKey - Patch Panel

This is one of the best contractor experiences I've had. They were on-time, very communicative when there were issues, and even finished a day early! The installation was super clean, no extra holes in the wall and no exposed wires anywhere. 10/10 would definitely work with Rivas again for future home network/automation needs.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Ivan and Nick from Rivas Techgroup. Ivan came in for the initial consult and was able to quickly understand the application and suggest a setup that can integrate easily with the floor plan and existing networking gear. He was very precise in his estimates and was even able to offer me a rebate on some ubiquiti WAPs I had and wanted to switch out for in-wall units. Ivan was also very accommodating of our tight schedule and made sure to fit in the install as per requirement. Nick, who did the install was very punctual and called ahead to let me know he was on the way. Post arrival, he was super quick to get to work and finished a full install of a new cabinet (including dry wall cut out, changing keystones, installing the WAPs and setting up the network. He did a quality job and the pictures speak for themselves. My only bit of constructive criticism (and this is probably my OCD kicking in) is that he could have done better cable management - had he used shorter CAT6 cables in the cabinet (cut to length, instead of standard sizes) and used the same color, it would have been a cleaner finish. He also left some old coax cables tied up in the cabinet which I’ll probably get around to eliminating. I’m being very nit picky about this though lol. Ivan and Nick also are always available on the phone to troubleshoot any network issues and help fine tune the network controller (highly recommend) which makes for stellar customer service. All in all, absolutely recommend. Don’t think twice!
