Before you build. During home construction. When renovating.

Our Work


When building a new home, renovating or re-planning a room, proper wiring is the single most important stage. Prewiring provides the necessary connections for all of your home entertainment/automation needs, for current and future upgrades. Adding components to a home that has been prewired is inexpensive as it requires minimal labour.


Listen to music in any room of the house without having multiple systems. Virtually invisible in-wall/in-ceiling speakers can be installed throughout your home – the kitchen, the bathroom, the patio – anywhere you want to enjoy music. Decora-style wall controls or touch panels in each room control the audio from one simple component in any location.


From a mini-theatre in the family room to a dedicated home theatre with electronic drapery, automated lighting and total touch screen control, ART will design a home theatre suited to your decor & budget.


Arrive home to a lighted driveway and enter the door with the foyer lights on, the temperature adjusted, the news already on the TV and music playing in the bedroom. Virtually every electronic device in the home can be automated. Entertainment, temperature, lighting, or security controlled with the touch of a button – even when away you can use a computer to control your home.


We use Control4, Lutron HomeWorks & RadioRa 2 technology to add elegance, ambiance, and energy efficiency to any room. Wireless dimmers and switches offer complete control of your lights without construction hassles. Lighting can account for up to 20% of a household’s electricity. We can help reduce your energy usage while enhancing your visual environment.

Motorized Shades

Shading systems from Lutron are the ideal solution for total light control. Its simplified wiring and common communication language allow for easy integration with Lutron and Control4 lighting controls. Wireless shading systems are perfect for retrofit and renovation projects and are beautiful, scalable, and reliable.


Integrating surveillance and security into your system gives you peace of mind wherever you are. Turn on/off your security and unlock doors remotely for deliveries and visitors. Provide e-mails or texts while you are away in case of intrusion. Have 24/7 video surveillance accessible on any TV, touch screen, or mobile device in the house. Vacation homes are no longer a worry with a fully integrated system.

The staff of Advanced Residential Technology (ART) are experienced residential electronics specialists.

They are recognized for their technical competence and dedication to serving our customer’s best interests – first and foremost.
