How Our Advanced Systems Implementation Process Smooths Project Deployment

Barrett’s investment in unique deployment processes removes the pain points in smart home installations

What should you look for when you want to add smart home functionality and advanced entertainment systems to your home? The reality is that in a large market like Chicago, IL, you will find several integrators that can offer the same solutions. Those might include top-tier solutions from Savant for home automation, Lutron for lighting controls, and several others. But we like to think the real difference in your experience will come down to your integration partner.

As a company providing home entertainment and technology solutions for over five decades, we have always been continually evolving, not only with the technologies we offer but also with how we implement them for clients. Our goal is to provide clients with the best experience, and that includes the process for deploying these solutions in the home. If we do it right, we think you'll be a client for the next five decades.

To that end, We’re very excited to tell you about our latest investment in ensuring a superior client experience – our Advanced System Implementation Process. We've even given it a name because we think it's that important. Please keep reading to learn more about our process, and we hope you'll see how it differentiates us from others in this space.

Why You Need a Professional Home Network Installation


You’re Likely to Get More Smart Connected Devices this Holiday Season

Did you shop online this past Black Friday? Or did you brave the crowds at the store to get those early bird deals? Whatever your preferences, it’s highly likely that some smart connected device is on the holiday shopping list, Black Friday or otherwise.

Have you ever thought about your home network's ability to handle all those devices? Most people don't. Your child gets a new iPad, and it gets added to the network. A new Amazon Echo or Sonos speaker, and it also connects. How about a new refrigerator? Many of the latest ones also get connected to Wi-Fi to keep you informed about malfunctions and maintenance.

If you stream video, like so many people, the strain on your network multiplies. You might not think about it, but your kids may be streaming 4K videos on that shiny new iPad they just got for Christmas, all day long. Is your network ready for all that? If you’re still relying on the home network installation from your ISP when you moved into your Lake Geneva, WI home, it may not be ready for the next wave of connections you just added!

Keep reading below to see how you can invest in a home network system that can keep up with your needs now and into the future.

Get Your Smart Home Up and Running Without a Hitch


How Our Deployment Room Optimizes Our Home Automation Projects

Are you looking for the best when it comes to your smart home installation? Then don’t settle for cluttered AV racks, delayed timelines, lengthy firmware updates, and glitchy systems that will ruin your smart home experience. Our brand-new deployment room allows us to deliver stellar service and faster, more reliable installations compared to our competitors for our clients from Chicago to Lake Geneva, WI. 

In the past, smart home installs have required techs spending lengthy time in the home. Leveraging the power of RACKFRAME panels, pre-wiring is neatly terminated, labeled, and color-coded so when your rack is ready to go, it’s a simple installation process. By then we’re the last people in the home and we know how desperate homeowners are to get things done. With us, there’s no dealing with techs coming in and out of your home to finish your project. 

Our deployment room lets us design your rack offsite so we can handle important firmware updates, programming, and testing in our office. If issues arise, we have all the tools at hand to solve them before we even drive over to your home. No more having to wait thirty days for bugs to work themselves out, instead your smart technology works within days, not weeks.

Want to learn how our process delivers a glitch-free smart home automation system from the get-go? Check out more details below on our brand-new deployment room and how it transforms the installation process.
