SmarT Tecknologies is a fully registered company that specializes in premium DStv / AUDIO / VISUAL / SECURITY & AUTOMATION systems from design, supply, installation and services for both Home Entertainment and corporate in South Africa and Zimbabwe at very competitive prices
At SmarT Technologies we will always talk with our clients first and get a feel for what they want to achieve and how much they are thinking of spending, before we go off and design the best solution for both your budget and your needs. We will always try to find the best for you in terms of performance vs. cost.
We work closely with architects, designers, builders and cabinet-makers to ensure our solutions also look good, enhance your decor and are positioned as optimally as possible for good vision and audio.
SmarT Tecknologies systems are easy to manage because we design, supply & install systems with technically robust and graphically consistent control interfaces that let you manage them wherever you are. Remote monitoring, control capabilities and proactive servicing such as remote diagnostics and reporting, give you centralised access to the status of your Audio / Visual or Security system at the touch of a button for both Home Entertainment and Cooperate.
The way SmarT Tecknologies handle each project varies according to the complexity of the job, but there are always a few important steps that we take
speak with the clients and get an idea of what they want to achieve, how fanatical they are or aren't about sound and picture quality, and guage a level of system required
Visit the site - by having a walk-around with the client and their builders/ designers/ architects, a much better idea of the aesthetics and positions of equipment can be attained, which helps with cabling estimates, and also lets us see what is possible and what may be more difficult
Propose a solution for the client with an estimate based on discussions. Our proposals always summarise our interpretation of the discussions and the requirements of the client. For small scale jobs, the proposal may just be an email, and for more complex jobs, will be a separate document with drawings and schedules
Follow up with the client - if necessary, modify any requirements or proposed solutions that need to be changed.
Detailed design- If we are awarded the job, a small deposit is taken to cover design costs and a detailed design is performed. We start by working out all the equipment we will need to install and where it will go. Only then can we estimate the correct infrastructure cabling and power requirements. A detailed design document for first fix cabling is then prepared. This may include CAD drawings, wiring schedules, rack design or project timeline schedules on complex jobs, or may just be a general layout drawing on smaller jobs.
First fix - a team is sent in to install all the conduit pipe routing and cabling needed to fulfil the requirements, as well as a few spares to cover any accidental damage during building works. We also suggest to clients to allow for future-proofing, by adding in additional cables for later expansion/ upgrades
Order equipment - there is normally a wait after first fix, while builders and decorators finish up. In such cases we would 1lorder the equipment at the right time, so it is ready the minute we can get onto the site to install it all.
Second fix - a team is sent to site to install all TVs, speakers, network equipment, source and distribution kit etc. Programmers follow to configure any software programming needed, and everything is setup, updated with software or firmware and tested to make sure it all does what it's supposed to.
Handover and training - we demonstrate the system to the client, and at this stage, any tweaks needed are made to make it as easy to use as possible. The client is shown how to use it and only left when they are confident they have figured it out.
Support - we don't do contracts but we always offer free support for a reasonable period, to cover any software glitches which may occur, or any other issues that may present themselves. Our existing clients will attest to our great levels of dedication to them.
- We offer a wide range of brands to suit all levels of budget, complexity and styles.
- All our brands are chosen from industry leading manufacturers and are recognised as being among the best at their price points.
- We always try to offer the best value components, rather than simply going for the most expensive
