My house was built in 2008, and Smart Systems installed my automation. They put in Elan controls for lighting, alarm, climate and media. It all worked. They trained me on the system and modified it to the way we lived.
When picking a home automation company, you need a company that has a solid history and will be around to fix and update the system. Smart Systems has been there for me. Their staff is responsive and friendly. I mostly work with Geoff, who has been a constant since 2008. Pat and Geoff even invited me one year to CEDIA in Denver, and it was great to see the new technology.
These guys know their stuff, and are tops in the Dallas area. I highly recommend them.
