How we do it
Design – System Design & Engineering – Comprehensive and thoughtful system design and engineering up front leads to the best balance of functionality, reliability and aesthetics in the end result. Avoid costly mistakes or order changes, having to do something twice, or tearing up walls once they’ve been closed. Careful attention is given to the numerous details involved with smart technology and integrated systems to ensure they are easy to use and deliver consistent performance and allow for future expansion or upgrades. Everything from wiring infrastructure, hardware location, control device placement, user interface design, power management and blending equipment with architectural elements and interiors is planned out in advance. We coordinate with architects, engineers, interior designers, general contractors, and affected sub-contractors.
Build – Project Management – A smart technology project takes effective planning, organizing, and allocating resources to make sure it’s completed on time and with the desired result at fit and finish. Additionally, procedures and protocols need to be met and unforeseen problems should be resolved quickly. Our dedicated project managers oversee all details and consistently communicate with the contractor, subcontractors and owner. Job sites are dynamic with many moving parts and having a solid, experienced person responsible to bring it altogether makes all the difference. Given the multi-faceted nature of integrating different sub-systems from audio/video, lighting control, climate, security, networking, and we take a proactive approach and over-communicate every step of the way.
Build – Installation – Putting all the parts and pieces together for smart technology and integrated systems needs to be executed with skill, precision, and some finesse. As much as we value our manufacturer partners, different products and brands have nuances that require special know-how and experience to optimize installation and access all the needed functionality. Our trained technicians receive ongoing education and stay up to date on the latest standards and best practices. We take pride in executing your system design with quality craftsmanship so it functions as desired and is reliable.
Build – Programming – Making sophisticated technology easy to use and simple for any user requires advanced work on the back end. Control systems bring together sub-systems such as audio/video, media, lighting, and more. Each system speaks a different language, but our programmers translate everything together so it speaks one language and can be controlled easily. Even with great equipment, the programming ultimately determines the intuitive operation. Our programmers balance the technical know-how with the human element so it’s easy to use.
Build – Service & Support – We want to ensure that you receive the best customer experience, but that doesn’t just end when your system is installed. Technology changes over time and can often require service or maintenance to continue operating at its best. We are your technology partner and are here to help with everything from maintaining your existing system to helping you optimize with the latest technology available. We are always here to provide expert advice, quality service, professional installation, and the best experience possible.
Interior Design – Is a room or business office lacking function? Is the decor looking drab and outdated? Maybe a space is empty and needs the perfect design to bring it to life. All are reasons to hire Simplex to assist your interior decorator. Decorating may seem like an easy task to some, but it requires ample consideration of details and knowledge of design styles especially when incorporating audio and video into your amazing spaces.
