The system is awesome!! And it’s super easy to use. I use it for convenience, entertainment, safety, energy efficiency- you name it. I can play multiple sources of music anywhere in my house, and I can watch my DVR or Blu-ray in multiple rooms. I love the lighting schemes. I set it to “Morning” when I wake up and only the lights I need turn on. When it’s time to go to bed I just select “All Off”. One of the best features is how I can control everything from my phone even when I’m not home. I can check my security system and cameras, control the temp, turn off lights, etc. The system really is great and there are too many features to name.

Hooked Up Installs provided us with a Whole Home Automation system that includes audio, video, security, and lighting. Brent and his team were very professional and paid great attention to detail during the entire process from design to install. Brent has always been helpful as we continue to add new features and automation. Our surround sound systems are awesome and the lighting scenes really set the ambiance in our new home. Our first real test of the system came on vacation when showing the iPhone integration to family members. We noticed from the front porch camera that UPS had delivered a lot of our new furniture and we would not be home for a week. Concerned, we called friends to move it to our garage. We were able to remotely disable the alarm, turn on lights, open the garage and reset the alarm for our friends to move the packages. What a cool system!

Brent was a lifesaver. I acquired an HDTV with various components and Comcast HD all at once. I just didn’t have time, patience, nor the expertise to put it all together. Brent arrived on time, and even though the installation took a bit longer than he expected, he charged me the very price he quoted on the phone. All in all, I was very pleased, and would highly recommend Hooked Up Installs.

Hooked Up Installs helped us capture the mood and environment of our establishment at a fraction of the cost of their competitors. I was happy with the choice that was made and look forward to doing business with them in the future.

The team arrived on time and our project was completed quickly and professionally. I was impressed with their attention to detail and extra precautions to maintain a clean environment. We are currently planning an outdoor project and we will definitely use Hooked Up Installs again.

Hooked Up Installs offers exceptional service. My equipment was installed in a timely manner, and I was taught how to use everything. They answered my questions and guided me. I praise them for their knowledge and hard work.
JIM ROMER Hawthorn Woods, IL
I want to commend your company (and you personally) on the recent Home Theater installation you completed for me this spring at my new townhome in Hawthorn Woods Country Club. From the initial contact, delivery of a price quote, scheduling, completion of the work and follow-up, you were professional, prompt, courteous and thorough. I felt very comfortable with your expertise, recommended equipment and replacement guarantees if I was not satisfied.” “You may certainly use me as a reference anytime and if I have any future audio/video requirements, I will call Hooked Up Installs first and only.

From the first moment that I contacted Brent about doing some work in my condo, I was immediately impressed with his knowledge, his professionalism, his organization, his attention to detail, and his fast response times. The original estimate that Brent gave me was virtually identical to the final cost, and it was a very reasonable price. The work that Brent did for me, was phenomenal. The speakers sound incredible; the surround sound is perfectly balanced, the TV is mounted perfectly, and the whole system is run flawlessly by the remote control that he programmed for me! I couldn’t be happier with the job that was done and would always call Brent for all of my stereo and wiring needs. Thanks, Brent!!

Hooked Up Installs mounted my 40″ LCD with perfect accuracy. Combined with the shelves that were installed as well, it looks fantastic and I could not be happier.

Hooked Up Installs did an incredible job installing a whole house distributed audio system, surround sound in a media room, and a flat-screen television with an articulating mount in our new home. The whole process went very smooth, and I am very satisfied with the products they selected and the service they provided. The proposal they put together was broken out and very easy to understand which made me very comfortable purchasing products I wasn’t familiar with before. They did a great job explaining the products and answering all of my questions. They were very enthusiastic about the project which made it a lot of fun to work with them. I will definitely use Hooked Up Installs in the future and will recommend them to my friends and neighbors.

Dealing with Hooked Up Installs was a fabulous experience. Not only did they save me a bundle on my hardware, but they were truly a one stop shop for me. We collectively figured out what hardware I needed, and they picked it all up (including 2 large plasma tv’s), brought it over to my house, and put everything in place. They were not satisfied until I was completely satisfied. My system looks and works great! Even since I paid the bill, they remain very available to help me with any questions. I highly recommend Hooked Up Installs!

Hooked Up Installs was a pleasure to work with! From the in-home consultation to the final setup and configuration walk-through, Brent and his team were right on point with making sure each component and setting were done to perfection. I had them mount multiple LCDs, each with the wires hidden and the cables set for HD quality, and each is nicely centered and placed in the prime location for good visibility and access…we even had them put an LCD in the master bathroom where we didn’t have any power or space for any cable boxes! Wow! It looks fantastic and makes getting ready for work an HD experience! Finally, they provided and installed an amazing surround sound home theater solution…Brent and his team configured the sound, programmed the universal remote, placed the IR Repeaters, and showed me how everything works. I have to admit that while I was skeptical about having this all done professionally versus doing myself, I am absolutely sure that I made the right choice in choosing the professional team at Hooked Up Installs. Consider me a VERY satisfied customer!

I highly recommend Hooked up Installs to anyone considering a professional installation from professionals who know how to make an installation right. When I was considering a recent install and purchase of three new television systems in my home, I was hesitant to use the Geek Squad at Best Buy because of previous poor experiences working with this company of installers. I was also overwhelmed with the magnitude of the ABT buying experience and the thought that I would just be another number among thousands of people who use their product and service. Looking for a more personal and caring approach, I called Mr. Brent Metz, with Hooked Up Installs and he quickly responded to my needs with an in-home consultation free of charge. The other companies mentioned charge a minimum of $150 just to come to your house. He was knowledgeable and courteous and met my wife and listened to all our needs. He recommended a product we could use and made an estimate of costs for us. His service also provides the purchase of all the equipment if you wish him to provide the televisions and systems. His prices were in step with Best Buy and other online stores and his installation costs were also in line with the competition. Where Brent’s installation and company sets itself apart is once again with the personalized care he provides his clients. He is responsive to email, phone calls, and delivers his product on time and with care. He removed the old televisions and provided professional demeanor and product. His installations were done in a way that preserved the beauty of our home, hiding all the wires and making the finished product look clean and beautiful. I recommend you purchase everything from Brent and make it easy on yourself. His team can bring the product and install. It’s easy and simple and you know you are going to get a great product, great service, and a great price. Thanks again to Brent and his team. They are fine gentlemen and a pleasure to work with.

We recently moved to a new condo in downtown Chicago. Our doorman suggested using Hooked Up Installs to get us fully connected with speakers in virtually every room. A number of owners have used them were very happy with the service that they provided. We were as well. They met our agreed to timelines, their pricing was good, and they are responsible. We've had opportunities to call them with follow-up questions and they always respond very quickly.
