We only use the best products available for your home. There are many products on the market that fit into
this same category. All reputable integrators use products that are top quality. The only difference among the products tends to be the personal preference of the integrators.

The other reason is we don't want to get the late Saturday night telephone call from any of our customers saying their system is not working. At Automated Lighting & Living Inc, in the unlikely event that it becomes necessary to make that late night or weekend call, we are available 24 hours a day.
