The Fundamentals

Most clients don’t think about their network setup when considering a home technology system. That’s a big mistake.

An effective network is the backbone of any smart home. It includes both high-quality wiring to connect all systems together and continuous system monitoring for optimal performance.

Professional installation and support are your best bet at having a high-performance home network before the holidays and every day.

AV Systems and Lighting Control

With the wiring done, it is time to consider some holiday fun! After all, what are AV systems for if not to make your home more enjoyable?

Entertain like a pro with the top names in the industry. They offer a range of smart products to turn any room in your house into an entertainment hub. At Summit Technology Group, our experts understand these brands and how to install and integrate them into new or existing technology systems.

Automated lighting control is the best compliment for your home AV systems, and no company does it better than Lutron. Their lights, smart shades, and lighting control software create the perfect ambiance for any room. You can even create scenes for each room or party!

Staying Safe

Security systems protect your home, your loved ones, and that amazing projector screen in your new home theater. Having a team of experts monitor these systems guarantees a prompt response in case of emergencies.

Brands like Avigilon offer smart cameras with video analytic tools, and their face and vehicle recognition technologies are second to none. In addition, systems such as Alarm.com are great for access control, video doorbells, motion detectors, and smart alarms, allowing you to have a truly comprehensive security system that helps you keep your loved ones protected.
