it all works together. No — your goal is completion, to be in your beautiful home, enjoying your favorite cocktail, glass of wine, movie, or music in the perfect lighting and with total control. So at Elite Automation & Technology, that is where we begin: by dreaming that dream with you. Seeing the completed vision, every day, in your home. Because when we keep our eyes trained on that vision, we can do anything.

Our Process


The first step to engaging us for your home or office project is to schedule an on-site consultation with us. Someone from our team will meet you at your home or business to discuss what you would like to do, answer any questions you have, review plans, and determine a budget. From there we will create a scope of work based on our conversation that will help us in the next phase of our process — System Design & Engineering.

System Design & Engineering

During system design & engineering, our team is working from construction plans and your approved scope of work to complete a comprehensive design within budget. Along with a full set of design documentation, we are typically collaborating with your builder, designer, and other trades to ensure our work is well thought out and captures any changes as they arise. Through our process, you can feel confident that we’re creating a custom solution that will give you the best experience possible.

Lighting Design

Not only will our team engineer your lighting control system, but we also offer in-house lighting design services. During lighting design, we select fixtures and accent lighting, create a layout, and do so in tandem with your lighting control solution. We identify where keypad and dimmer locations will be called out and create lighting scenes to best create a space that is warm and inviting while enhancing the natural beauty of your home.

Project Management

A smart technology project takes effective planning, organizing, and allocating resources to make sure it’s completed on time and with the desired result at fit and finish. Additionally, procedures and protocols need to be met and unforeseen problems should be resolved quickly. Our dedicated project managers oversee all details and consistently communicate with the contractor, subcontractors and owner. Job sites are dynamic with many moving parts and having a solid, experienced person responsible to bring it altogether makes all the difference. Given the multi-faceted nature of integrating different sub-systems from audio/video, lighting control, climate, security, networking, and we take a proactive approach and over-communicate every step of the way.


Putting all the parts and pieces together for smart technology and integrated systems need to be executed with skill, precision, and some finesse. As much as we value our manufacturer partners, different products and brands have nuances that require special know-how and experience to optimize installation and access all the needed functionality. Our trained technicians receive ongoing education and stay up to date on the latest standards and best practices. We take pride in executing your system design with quality craftsmanship so it functions as desired and is reliable.


Programming all of your technology to work together takes years of training and experience to master. Getting all of the products to talk to each other is only the beginning—the real artistry is in creating an interface that is easy to use and logic to make it all work together to meet your needs. Our programmers work closely with our design and sales team to ensure that your system will function the way you want it and be intuitive for daily users or people just visiting.

Service & Support

We want to ensure that you receive the best customer experience, but that doesn’t just end when your system is installed. Technology changes over time and can often require service or maintenance to continue operating at its best. We are your technology partner and are here to help with everything from maintaining your existing system to helping you optimize with the latest technology available. We are always here to provide expert advice, quality service, professional installation, and the best experience possible.
