Full Home Theatre retro fit Install

Wayne was efficient, easy to work with and extremely knowledgeable. Watching him work, it was easy to see his experience.

I would not hesitate to call Wayne back for any further work or recommend him to even my closest friends.

I wish I had of engaged him prior to me purchasing my home theatre products. He is a wealth of information.

Feel free to ask Wayne for my email address if you would like to verify this review.

TV mounting and installation of home theatre system

We have had Wayne do a number of electronic jobs at our house the latest being the purchase (at great price) and installation of a home theatre system while getting rid of a whole bunch of wires from the previous system. As usual he did a great job and the new system looks great. I would recommend Wayne to anyone looking for great service as well as a clearer understanding of the many options available to meet the need requested.

Wired ethernet & mesh wifi installation

Had Wayne come out to run ethernet through the house. He did a great job finding the most economical way to provide wired connections where I needed them, and even recommended (and helped setup) a great mesh wifi system from tp-link. This system is geared more towards business, but is priced close to some of the mesh wifi kits you can buy. I think these tp-link wall plates look much cleaner, the app is easy to use to manage the network, and I'm really pleased with the performance so far - I just wish I could say the same for my ISP...

I was especially appreciative of the time he took to discuss the best way to address my concerns, and how responsive he was via text and email while discussing the solution. He was able to run some speaker wire for my surround speakers while setting up the ethernet connection which was a great bit of efficiency!

He had all the necessary parts ready on installation day, and not only was the installation high quality, he patched up any access points he needed to make and cleaned up everything once complete. For the work done, the price was very reasonable. On top of all this, I genuinely enjoyed chatting with him. My two young boys were interested in the work he was doing, and he even answered some of their questions! They've been asking when "Wayne the internet guy" is coming back for a visit...

I would highly recommend HomeSmartz and Wayne to anyone asking.

Home Theatre, Outdoor speakers and Home Network

We removed two walls on our main floor and installed custom cabinetry. I used the opportunity to re-design our surround sound system and home network. The idea was to leverage my existing amp for the home theatre and install new speakers on a different zone outside, all with connectivity to our cell phones (Spotify).
When I met with Wayne, he fully understood my plan, but also offered even better ideas. The finished product was a 5.1 Dolby Digital set up with ceiling speakers and the sub that honestly feels like a movie theatre. Two high quality outdoor speakers connected to the same amp on a different zone. I can play my music while outside from my cell phone, while my wife can play her music inside from her phone and vice versa. Wayne was unbelievable in fine tuning the amp to the precise settings needed between watch movies and listening to music.

In addition to this, Wayne was able to amplify our home network to guarantee a strong signal all over our property, as we love watching movies on the projector out back and listening to music by the pool.

We also purchased a 65" Sony XBR through Wayne and love it.. it completes the smart home concept as we can easily connect all of our devices to the TV and really enjoy this feature.

I can't say enough about how pleased I am with the job that Wayne did for us. He also cleaned up a lot of excess wiring from the previous owners and made sure everything was installed as cleanly and professionally as possible.

I could have hired the general contractors that did the renovation to do this work but I knew that I needed someone with expert knowledge, and who could give a clean look and finish. Wayne absolutely delivered and my wife and I could not be happier with the experience we have with this setup everyday. Highly recommend Wayne and will definitely use him for future projects!

Nest products and home theatre installs - FANTASTIC!

Wayne was absolutely the best contractor we've ever worked with. His attention to detail and desire to complete a project in the most professional way possible was so appreciated on our end. Very friendly, very knowledgeable and went above and beyond expectations. So confident in his abilities we're hiring him again. Don't even think about hiring anyone else. We were nearly duped by other contractors but got true honesty from Wayne.

75" TV mount, cabinet and wiring

Wayne always does a top notch job... clean... organized and looks amazing... We had him over a number of years ago to install a 55" and he did amazing work... one of the nicest guys you can ever deal with... so we recently upgraded to a 75" and wanted to move the location to the opposite wall... He mounts the new tv, cabinet and rewired all the devices ie Xbox One, Stereo unit, Wii etc... loads of wires... he removed the old tv packaged it up for us... fixed the wall where the original was mounted and it looks amazing... Can't thank him enough... You'll never go wrong with Wayne...
