Design and Engineering
Each project begins with design services followed by engineering planning to ensure that the system is properly laid out, any potential issues are addressed and all contractors involved in the project understand what needs to be done and what their specific roles are in the project. These steps make it more likely that the entire team can effectively achieve a successful installation.
Design And Entertainment Services
Design services begin with comprehensive drawings that clearly convey the client’s expectations and desires, as well as any potential obstacles that may need to be addressed during installation of the system. By providing detailed drawings and graphical flow charts along with any necessary documentation regarding how the system is put together, we better ensure compatibility of the system and address all of the client’s needs. During this phase, our project managers and designers work with any necessary trades, including builders, architects, designers and contractors, so that the final design is understood by everyone involved in the project and any concerns are addressed early in the process.
Once a design is approved, the project advances to the engineering stage. With the aid of CAD software, we develop flow diagrams and detailed layouts for all key aspects of the system. We consider all details of the project, from room and seating arrangements to the selection of audio and video equipment and from energy-saving systems to lighting and window treatments, as well as all necessary safety requirements. A complete set of engineering plans is prepared for each of the contractors involved in the project so they understand their roles and can work efficiently to complete the necessary tasks.
Upon successful completion of the design and engineering phases of the project, we can then proceed to the installation phase.

You pull up in your driveway after a long day of work, looking forward to unwinding and releasing the stresses of the day. As you walk into your personal sanctuary, you are met with the sounds of soft music playing softly in the background or your television set to your favorite channel. The lights are already on and perfectly dimmed, the temperature is comfortable and all that’s left for you to do is to take off your shoes and sit down to relax in the comfort of your own home. That is the beauty of home automation – an automated home can prepare for your arrival before you even open the front door!
Our experienced and dedicated staff offers full-service home automation services, from initial design and engineering through to installation, maintenance and on-going support. No job is too large or too small for us and each of our home automation teams is headed by a dedicated project manager to better ensure that all aspects of the job are seamlessly executed. In addition to installing new home automation systems, we can also reverse engineer, service, fix, expand and update existing automation systems previously installed by other companies. We are one of the few home automation service companies in South Florida to offer this option.
Before there were even products like Nest, Crestron and Control4 available on the market, our home automation experts were devising innovative ways to automate homes. In fact, after completely automating a home for a person with disabilities in 1991, we were asked to consult with the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) to share information about how our home automation designs and solutions can make it easier for individuals with disabilities to live on their own. The home automation services offered by Audio Tec Designs have also been highlighted in national magazines and textbooks. Our team has a long history of designing and installing effective home automation solutions in Boca Raton, South Florida and around the world. We are an accredited member of CEDIA and all staff members are industry-trained.
