New Build in Hawks Landing

We chose Smart Space to install a home automation system in our new custom home just outside of Calgary based on a recommendation from friends. We couldn’t be happier with the RTI/Sonos/Securtec products and the wonderful service provided by Adrian and the rest of the SmartSpace team.

We originally requested two quotes – the first to wire our new home and the second to install the full system at a later date. We really appreciated the “no-pressure” approach by the sales team, simply allowing us to take our time and understanding that we had a budget to consider. When we got closer to moving into our new home we couldn’t wait to enjoy the system so then arranged for the full setup in our kitchen, den, home theater, gym and master BR which was done quickly and professionally by the installation team. They coordinated seamlessly with our builder, TELUS and the satellite folks, going above and beyond in terms of ensuring we were satisfied with the final product. Adrian made himself readily available to answer questions and even came out to give us an orientation to all of the features of the system.

Living in a rural setting is new to us and we’ve found that power failures are fairly typical but we’ve been using the system for about a year and have had absolutely no technical issues whatsoever. The system is reliable and integrates perfectly with the service providers. We are confident we’ll be enjoying our system for years to come and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend SmartSpace to anyone considering a home automation system!

Smart Home Package

My wife and I had Smart Space wire our house with security, RTI panel ( home is run off Apple products ) and our bonus room. The guys did a great job and the customer service was very good. They responded well to all of our issues. Smart Space offers high end equipment with a wide range for all price ranges. We are very satisfied with our experience as a whole and would recommend them.

Installation of Sono's and RTI throughout New Build

We recently built our new home with Shane Home and SmartSpace Technologies was the company who was doing our basic wiring such as telephone etc. We ended up getting the RTI system installed which is AWESOME!! I was very fussy during the home building process and indicated I wanted NO CORDS visible anywhere in the house where TV's were installed. We also have a 7.1 system installed in the basement with AWESOME custom soundframes to go along with our 80" TV and exposed A/V rack by the furnace room. In addition to this, we also installed SONOS in the kitchen and master bedroom ensuite...LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. Both my husband and I have no idea about anything when it comes to all this technology, and the team at SmartSpace was INCREDIBLE in terms of helping us understand geeky language in real people talk! Their workmanship and attention to detail was outstanding. Not to mention the support we received from everyone was beyond exceptional! I would recommend SmartSpace in a heart beat.

Hi Linda, We couldn't be happier with the way your project turned out. It was great to work with a couple that knew what they wanted and trusted us to get you there on budget. I think the results really do speak for themselves. Look forward to chatting soon! - Geoff @ www.smartspacetech.ca

Lighting System, Home Theatres

On behalf of my wife and myself I would like to thank the Smart Space Team for their outstanding work on my new lighting, automation and theater systems. We recently completed a major renovation to our house which in it's self was a major challenge. The construction of our lighting, automation and theatre systems was built seamlessly without issue. When minor issues came up, which can be expected from any system of this type, the smart space team jumped on them and resolved them right away. Their professionalism to meet the clients needs is outstanding. During our pricing and preconstruction phase, we tendered this scope of work. Smart Spaces' prices were very competitive within the market we were looking at. Their sales team, in our opinion, set them apart from the rest. There was no BS, no overselling of products and they helped us pick the system that was custom tailored to our needs. I could have paid allot more for a system that we did not need. The system installed is perfect. During construction the rough in team was superb. Wiring was run neat and tidy and they were very conscious of other trades work. During the finish stage Smart Space spent considerable amount of time fine tuning and perfecting the system, I mean in every little detail to perfection. During the commissioning stage, some minor issues came up but were dealt with the very next day. With all the trades that were part of the construction of our house, I have to say Smart Space was by far the best.

In addition I am an owner of a commercial construction firm in Calgary and I have dealt with allot of trades in my career. Dealing with Smart Space was a pleasure, and by far one of the best trades I have dealt with in a long time. Geoff, Adrian keep it up guys, you are sure to go a long ways

Thanks Brent! It was such a pleasure working with you guys on your project. I appreciated that you noticed when I talked you OUT of buying things. We really try to view ourselves as consultants first and foremost and we do our best to educate our clients so they can make the most informed decisions possible. We have worked hard to ensure that our design, rough in, and installation process is fine tuned to ensure that things go as smoothly as possible and I am elated that the finished product was everything you had hoped for! My best to you and your family.

New Home Build

Assisted Review

An assisted review is collected by a contractor on behalf of the homeowner after their work is completed. The homeowner must confirm the text of the review and may make any changes she or he deems appropriate. The homeowner then assigns the contractor a review score out of 10. Assisted reviews receive the same scrutiny as other reviews and must follow our review guidelines.

On behalf of my husband Kern and me, I would like to express our great satisfaction with our experience, products and service provided for our integrated home system that you and your team at smartSPACE Technologies provided to us as part of our new home construction.

Our journey began almost a year ago with an initial meeting with a member of your custom sales and integration team. His knowledge and ability to explain the possibilities of an integrated home system helped us make informed decisions about a system that met our personal wishes and needs. The sales rep’s ability to explain the intricacies of a complicated system in a way that we could understand was greatly appreciated. He patiently responded to any and all questions we had as we gained a better understanding of program and product options. As a member of the smartSPACE team, your sales representative has been very accessible and willing to provide us or our builder with information and answers to our questions throughout the entire home construction. The service has been excellent!

During the infrastructure stage of our home construction, your team was ready, willing and able to meet with site managers to discuss specific wiring needs and complexities based on our unique home design. We had the utmost confidence in the knowledge and ability of the team who wired the house for the integrated system. Our feedback from the site managers regarding the installation of wiring was always positive. Your team met timelines and worked cooperatively with site management.

At this time, the effort and knowledge provided by smartSPACE Technologies are evident by the fantastic home system we are now able to enjoy in our new home. The installation team who set up the system and components did a great job as proven by an integrated system that works extremely well. We have had no problems with operating any of the systems and even if there was an issue, we feel totally confident that smartSPACE would be there to provide support and rectify any problems.

In the process of our custom home construction, we have had many experiences with many trades. In our opinion, smart SPACE Technologies not only met, but exceeded our expectations for knowledge and service. Our confidence in smartSPACE Technologies never waned. The proof is in the product. An awesome home system that meets our audio, visual, security, lighting and climate control needs. We could not be more pleased with the work, product and service you and your team have provided.

We would be delighted to provide a glowing reference for smartSPACE Technologies, based on our positive experience, to anyone who is exploring options for an integrated home system. Thanks to you and your team for delivering high quality service and an excellent integrated home system.

Sincerely,
Linda & Kern

Hey Linda and Kern. It was an absolute pleasure working with you throughout the build of your new home. Now that summer is here I am sure you will get great use out of your outdoor speakers for patio entertaining. I am also glad to hear that the occupancy sensors in the walk-in closets are serving you both well! - Adrian@smartSPACE

Basement Development

I recently developed my basement using SmartSpace for my media requirements, as well have used them in the past. My dealings with them have always been easy and enjoyable when they could be difficult and confusing. They clearly explain any question you may have, as well are up front and honest about all components of the job. I would strongly recommend using SmartSpace if you are taking on a job requiring the skills they have to offer. As mentioned, I have done it multiple times and would gladly do it again in the future.

Hi Spencer. Always a pleasure. I'm glad you went with the bezel free speakers on this job. The look is so sleek. We're very happy with the way your rec-room/games-room/theatre turned out. If you're ever looking to add some motorized blinds for movie night we have a couple of great new battery powered options to show you. Thanks again for your business and your review. -Geoff

Smart Home Installation

My husband and I purchased a new home a year ago and Smart Space had installed the Smart Home Automation System both the Entertainment and Home Security. We made some personal changes and were very pleased with Geoff, Matt and the rest of the crew who all spent considerable time on the project. They were professional and helpful. Geoff, Matt and Josh are very prompt in responding to anything that comes up, be it power surges ( new neighborhood) to adding more TV systems throughout our home. I would recommend Smart Space to others.

Lighting, Theatre and Custom Automation

Geoff, you've created a Masterpiece!! I completed a custom home in Altadore last year and selected smartSPACE after talking to virtually every home automation company in Calgary. I selected smartSPACE because Geoff provided endless options to meet our list of unreasonable demands at the most competitive price. I worked with Geoff right at the design stage of our home and as a result he helped design features and add functionality that I didn't know was possible without contacting NASA. I will list some of very cool features that Geoff helped to design: Lutron lighting with keypads that control everything from the fireplaces, electrical outlets, electric drawers in my kitchen, fans and oh ya...the lights too! 16 zones of audio with 2 TV areas that have custom sized sound bars, base subs and no receivers or cable boxes to be seen anywhere but in the 2 racks in my basement that I call the "Brain". Our 7.2 movie theatre with in wall speakers, acoustic panels and custom colour speaker grills makes a trip to the Movie Theatre obsolete! The security system is integrated with the lighting and outdoor speakers, I have witnessed construction workers in the neighborhood take cover when the alarm is tested as it sounds like an air raid siren with flashing lights that make the house look like it is going to self destruct...very subtle!
Thanks very much Geoff for making our home fun and over the top functional, I look forward to the next smartSPACE project!

Andrew,

Your project was a joy to work on. Building your own home is quite a challenge to some but it seemed to be second nature to you and your family. I appreciated your attention to detail throughout the design process as it made things so much easier for us as the job progressed.

I'm glad you're enjoying the house and systems and also look forward to the next project.

I have now done 2 projects with SmartSPACE and both have been wonderful. From our initial meetings to the installation and operation of the system has been awesome. We would highly recommend smartSPACE to anyone who is looking for any kind of home theatre system (big or small). Great Team over at smartSPACE.

AV Systems for 2 Large Homes

We have had our two most recent principal residences fully outfitted by Geoff and SmartSpace. Our experience has been excellent.

Right from the outset they were professional. First a detailed walkthrough with Geoff onsite, going over goals and expectations, general concepts and small details. Next we were given an itemized breakout estimating costs. Any changes to the estimate produced change orders that were easy to understand and required signature. The installers were polite, well-groomed, and were not profane. They were even tidy, and cleaned up their work area once completed. The final products were reviewed fully by Geoff himself. Finally, any service issues were/are handled quickly and efficiently.

These guys are professional... and I would say our installations were fairly complicated. Both homes had retractable art screen televisions, units and sound mounted in the kitchen, gym, great room, master, ensuite, office, patio, and full media room build-out. We would not hesitate to recommend SmartSpace and Geoff.

Hi There,

Thank you so much for the review and for your continued support. This project was such a good example of how you can utilize technology throughout your house without having to look at it every day. The motorized artwork covering your television coupled with the paint-matched speakers make this one of my favorite "stealth" installs we've done. Thanks again and take care. -Geoff
