Testimonial Image

Over the years, I’ve been fortunate enough to deal with Advance Electronics in many facets; as a customer of the store, as an employee on their sales floor, and most recently as a representative for some of their suppliers. From their dynamic ART department to their more customer centric cellular and retail divisions, Advance Electronics continues to surpass my expectations in every aspect. They offer a fantastic selection of top of the line products, employ personable and knowledgeable staff, and have been a pleasure to work with from a business perspective. I especially love that they have been locally owned and operated since inception and continue to maintain that hometown pride with every interaction. I’ve been fortunate to be able to develop a great partnership with this organization and I look forward to many more future dealings.

Testimonial Image

Advance Electronics is one of those partners that everyone in our industry wants to be associated with for so many different reasons. One of those reasons is integrity.

Rob Olinyk, the owner of Advance not only has maintained but grew that longstanding integral family culture of doing what’s right for the customer, the staff and the partners they do business with no matter what. Now a days that is very hard to come by.

For us at Staub we see it as a privilege to know Rob and his team and couldn’t be more honoured to have Advance Electronics as a partner.

what we do
how art can improve your lifestyle

When building a new home, renovating or improving your space, proper wiring is the single most important stage. In fact, as many benefits as there are to going wireless, the same applies to rewiring for all of your home entertainment/automation needs, as well as for current and future upgrades.


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 – kitchen, bathroom, outdoor living space – anywhere you want to enjoy music. 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 shading, automated lighting and total touch screen control, ART will design a home theatre suited to your decor and budget. Roll credits!


Imagine arriving home to a well-lit driveway. Upon entering the door, with the foyer lights turn on. Temperature is just right; the news is on the TV and music is playing in the bedroom. Virtually every electronic device in the home can be automated. Entertainment, temperature, lighting, or security can be controlled with the touch of a button – even when you’re away from home, you can its functionality.


Use technology to define the ambiance, and energy efficiency of any room. One keypad offers complete control of your lighting without multiple switches. Improve your home’s energy and create an experience simply by adjusting the light – in the middle of a dinner party or the middle of the night. So, go ahead, grab your book and head to bed. You can turn off (or on) any light in the house from one location.


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 as well are beautiful, scalable, and reliable.


Integrating surveillance and security into your home automation system gives you peace of mind from anywhere in the world. Turn on/off your security and unlock doors remotely for deliveries and visitors. Receive 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 or from the cottage. Vacation homes are no longer a worry with a fully integrated system.
