How We Make Sure You Get What You Want

You probably know important to choose the right integrator of smart technology for any home, old or new, because it has to be done right.  Anima’s choice to provide premium quality means not only covering all features of premium systems, but also offering excellent communication and simplification in design.  Anima aims to take the complexity present in smart integration and make it easy to understand from start-to-finish, so the job is done right.

Below is listed the processed experienced by clients who choose Anima.

Standardized diagrams used aid in clear communication among multiple contractors and the client, helping keep projects on schedule and under budget.

1. Consultation & Design

The first phase begins upon communication with one of Anima’s representatives.  Anima provides clients with the best information possible, including both market and product information.  Involving Anima early allows communication with team-members or designers who are well-equipped (with the help of our team) to understand how smart-home technology will affect the feel of the property overall to gain maximum benefit from lighting and sound automation, especially.  Involving Anima before the roughing stage optimizes elements which are best wired– although Anima can also provide many smart-home elements in completed builds. Anima then aids clients free-of-charge in choosing products within budget and functional requirements.  Some back-and-forth is common before reaching the final decision depending on the client.  Payment terms and specifications are finalized.

2. Pre-Wiring, Installation, & Integration

Upon receiving deposit, pre-wiring is done for wired aspects of systems during roughing (there are advantages to having wired elements).  Most installation components are done after roughing is complete, before move-in.  Diagrams used during the design process help keep overlapping contractors properly synchronized and Anima takes pride in the risk mitigation benefits (from experience) that levels of clarity and detail bring.

3. Final Consultation, Training, & Support

After installation (or move-in for new builds) is complete, Anima’s reps train members of the house-hold (or commercial site) in using various aspects of the smart-home system.  Because Anima’s systems offer an especially-wide array of freedom, Anima both (a) empowers users to modify & create many of their own automation commands and (b) will make any final customization to the automation components itself (allowing users to see the devices work during walk-through, so they have a feel for things first). From this point on, Anima is available for further services the new users may find useful to deal with any future issues which may arise or to make professional customization alterations should users prefer.
