M1 Systems considers our membership with CEDIA a partnership with our customers.
Why, because CEDIA verifies that M1 Systems is licensed, insured, and properly knowledgeable in our industry.
By CEDIA being listed as an additional on our insurance, and workers compensation insurance, they are notified by our insurance company if we ever cancel or miss a payment. If our contractor’s license expires or is revoked they are notified and we are no longer a member. Through training and testing requirement CEDIA verifies that we know what we are doing.
This is our best way of giving you an honest source to check on us. Check us out on the CEDIA web site, and you will know M1 Systems is qualified. (Or we can give you are cousins phone number for a reference on one of our installations, like others contractors do!)
What we will not do is give out our customers private phone numbers for you to call and ask about there system and how they liked using M1 Systems. Not that our customers will not give us a great recommendations, but we choose to not bother them with potential customers. Our customers are long term customers who refer M1 Systems to friends and family, and with are appreciation of that; we choose to not ask them to take calls for job references from a potential customer. Then after M1 Systems installs a system in your home we will continue our same policy and not give out your private phone number for future potential customers of M1 Systems.
Our CEA membership provides us with news and trends in the industry as well as trade show privileges. M1 Systems is constantly researching new products and ways of integration. We attend 10-12 industry trade shows and seminars a year with dozens of new product training and certifications a year. We stay on top of our industry because that’s what you pay us for, and it’s our hobby at the same time!
We carry Factory Certifications with all of our systems as well. (See certification center)
As well as beta test new systems for our system manufactures, M1 Systems provides feed back on what our customers are asking for in features as well as design to our manufactures. Some of our system manufactures have been around for 60 years, and there is good reason for that!
M1 Systems has spent countless hours putting together some of the best systems available for your home or business. We strongly believe we have put together an all-star cast of products with some name brands that you may have heard of like Bosch, Klipsch, Denon, NEC, AMP, Panasonic, or GE. Others are brands like M&S, Airvac, Linear, Doorking, ELK, and Smarthome, these names are less recognizable but are leaders in there industry as well.
The name brand systems do not mean everything, but what M1 Systems tries to offer with every system from Home Theater to Alarm to Gate Entry is the best system for your money, after all it is your money.
With the vast back round of experience M1 Systems looks for quality performance, ease of use, usable features, good esthetics, and a solid warranty with all systems we choose to sell and install.
Some customers want to compare “apples to apples”, but the last time I was in the grocery store I found 15 different “apples” to choose from!
So view our products category to see and hopefully understand the difference we offer.
M1 Systems is large enough to be knowledgeable and technical in everything we do, but still strive to maintain the creativity so many homeowners desire when building the home of there dreams. Every home is treated with the care and respect we would extend to our own and our technicians take pride in each and every installation we do.
