Installations: Let Us Entertain You Page 7
The system continues to evolve as the Pates discover different needs. Fortunately, the structured-wiring bundle we installed enables us to accommodate just about anything they might want. We've already swapped out several of the original 4-inch Via touchpanels and replaced them with larger 6.5-inch versions. A likely next move will be to upgrade the Escient music and movie system with Kaleidescape's server-based system. "I was really impressed with the Kaleidescape," says Phil. "The whole presentation and speed are top-notch."
At the end of a large job, nothing is more satisfying for the installation firm than having a homeowner who not only loves the system but also still likes working with the company. "I didn't want to have any service issues, so I selected a custom-installation company that had a good reputation for service," says Phil. "Ultimately, they made the job and my whole life a lot easier."
And that's what working with a custom installer is all about.
