Design Philosophy

Brains. Beauty. Budget. Our customers love having access to one of the most advanced residential technology teams in North America. We’re called across the country from Texas to New York, from California to Bermuda to work on some of the biggest and most complex smart home systems to date. And we’re focused on design more than any typical audio-video installer or retail outlet. We’re interior technology designers first, which means that we’re hiding the technology, making it a bit warmer and a bit easier to use. And no matter the size of your home, we are always considering the project budget and ways to lower costs. We promise to be competitive, but we will never sacrifice product or design quality. Smart design means looking at all the options and staying on top of the latest integration solutions.

Jason Finegan, Director Software Development: A software developer and programmer at AMX, Jason has programmed some of the biggest smart home systems to date, including the largest home in Georgia (50,000 sq ft.) and various large estates from Texas to Ohio and even to Bermuda.  He has programmed multiple complex commercial systems on both AMX and Crestron platforms and done quite a bit of software for a number of U.S. military training rooms and war rooms.  When the project is especially complicated, custom or involves the largest estates, Jason is definitely one of the best programmers on the planet.
