Sensation Design has developed a very impressive home automation system for us. It provides seamless integration of our security system, lighting, whole house audio, home theater, and video system. From the Internet we can remotely control the temperature, check the security cameras, check if lights are on, or turn lights on or off. The quality of work is top notch and the technical understanding of the team sets them apart from the competition.
As someone who has worked hard all their life, I can absolutely appreciate what you have done for me and my family Thank You seems like it isn’t enough.
It was a wise choice. I’m not the typical wealthy client. Drew was sensitive to our budgetary concerns. My husband and I both appreciated his consistent communications with us.
In the last several years Sensation has provided an upgraded theater in one home, a system installation in another, assumed the maintenance of a third and developed an entire AV/Lighting system for our yacht. Beyond state of the art concepts, Sensation has been able to make all these systems compatible and durable. We can go from one to another with relative ease and confidence. It allows us to learn one system rather than a multitude of remote’s, software and nomenclature that are often very difficult and confusing to master. In addition our Sensation Design contacts are friendly as well as knowledgeable and willing to listen to our questions. All in all we are very pleased with our electronic equipment and usability in our various physical locations. SDG is responsible for that contentment
We have proof of what we knew all along, that we have “the best” programmer around.
SDG offers our clients a complete solution for their homes and businesses that allows the occupants to streamline and simplify all the technology in their home or office offering the ultimate lifestyle, comfort, and convenience. Eliminating the need to walk from room to room to adjust drapes, lights, temperature, and audio/video components. Whether from an easy-to-use color touch panel, remote or a customized keypad, total control is always a fingertip press away.
After years of disappointment with other companies, Drew came to the rescue. Our system was frustrating and didn’t work as advertised. Drew showed up and fixed our mess. The only regret we have is that we didn’t start day one with Drew. If you want the best in the business and someone who backs up what they do, call Drew. You won’t regret it.
We have a very large, integrated and complicated Crestron system that was installed in 2011. It had many problems until we found Andrew Wiatrak and Sensation Design Group in the spring of 2013. He was able to diagnose and correct many programming issues created by the initial installer. He has shown a commitment to excellence by working long hours to debug the problems we encountered in our initial install. He is professional, courteous and extremely eager to meet all of our programming needs. I feel confident that he will continue to support our project and our needs in the future.
I highly recommend Andrew and Sensation Design Group.
It is with great pleasure that I recommend Andrew Wiatrak and Sensation Design Group, LLC. I have had an ongoing working relationship since September 2010. Andrew has always displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility, and Professionalism. Sensation Design Group, LLC diligently worked to provide the most Comprehensive Crestron system to fit my needs. Everything that was asked of Andrew and or Sensation Design Group, LLC has always been met with understanding and eagerness to meet those needs. Andrew has taken the time needed to do my project right the first time.
Sensation Design Group, LLC was chosen after starting with a local company that could not meet the programming needs for a system the size and complexity of mine. Andrew was chosen after talking with him over the phone and his experience and knowledge was easily shown. His willingness to continue to support me and my project is invaluable and therefore I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Andrew and Sensation Design Group, LLC.
We built a new house recently (moved in 2007) and my husband is very into technology and ensuring our house was as technologically advanced as possible (within reason) while still maintaining the ability for me and our two young kids to operate it. We have had bad experiences with past electronics integration companies, people, service, and products. The people need to know their products and stand behind them. Until we found Andrew Wiatrak and the Crestron products, we were very frustrated.
After an exhaustive search, we hired Andrew and Sensation Design Group to do all the planning and work on our house. We have a fully integrated HVAC, lighting, telephone, music, video, and security (complete with many cameras) home automation system that has worked very well from the day we moved in. What does that mean though? We have many options for lighting in every room, with easy, one touch buttons that make it clear what each does; we have music wherever we want it, including outside and in the garage; we can control our garage doors, temperature, and lights from anywhere in the world with just a touch of a button on an iphone or a panel in the house; we can watch movies on any TV in the house; we can use the phone system as a pager to any room or all rooms so we don’t have to yell to find each other (we use this all the time!); and we can monitor our video cameras from any TV within the house, or computer while we are away from home.
I was nervous about trying to make our house so automated. I didn’t think we needed it. I was concerned about how complicated it would be, and I didn’t think it would be kid or Mom friendly. Well, it’s a few years later and I still like everything we did and even more importantly, it all works!
I think the three most important parts of a decision to install home electronics are this: product reliability, success of implementation (can the company putting it all in really make it all work together the way they say it will), and is there reliable and prompt service during and after installation.
Andrew and his team have passed all three of these key tests. We have added more cameras and some new technology into our house since we built it and they have been great making it all work. They knew what pre-wiring to do even though we weren’t asking for it, but someday may need it.
The system is so easy to use that even my 7 and 9 year-old girls use it every day. I’m sure you have many choices and many people talking to you about what their products or systems can do, and I would be leery of just about all of them. The Crestron products are very high quality and all integrate well. Next, you need a programmer with the skill and experience to be able to get it all working. This is usually the toughest part to pull off and to understand before beginning. Again, Andrew and his team are capable of doing what they say on time.
I’d be happy to show you our system to give you a sense of what it can do. However, we are currently living in London. My husband will be home in the middle of April for a week and perhaps he could show you or your family if you are interested. In the meantime, I am also happy to speak with you to answer any questions you may have
Good luck with your building process. There are lots of decisions to make and it is difficult to know whom you can trust! I wish that I had someone to save me from all of the bad systems and programmers out there! Believe me, if you choose Andrew to create and install your system it will be one of the decisions that you will be really happy with when the building process is finished. We have even sent him to several of our friends and they are all happy.Jenny
