    Low Voltage Contractor

    Contractors build and improve on the structures that we work and live in. Most contractors are actually subcontractors who contract to do a certain portion of the project for a general (or prime) contractor. Although not every building team will include an A/V (or Low Voltage) contractor, the likely hood is becoming much more common. With electronics and computers becoming an integral part of our daily lives, you are bound to notice these appliances every where you go... including home. Imagine all the pieces that it takes to make this technology seamless. That is where the A/V contractor shines. 12v or Low Voltage Contractor may be licensed to install, service or repair:

    1. Alarm systems
    2. Telephone systems
    3. Sound systems
    4. Intercommunication systems
    5. Public addressing systems
    6. Television or video systems
    7. Low voltage signaling devices
    8. Low voltage landscape lighting that does not exceed 91 volts
    9. Master and program clocks (only low voltage wiring and needed equipment)

    Advice and Soundbites

    I love movies and I was also a singer in a few bands. We put the two things together a few years ago with surround sound in the homes. You know I was in heaven. Gregory

    At some point in time I knew I would have my own business. Gregory
