Q. Why is your company called HomeRun Automation?
A. I love baseball and wanted an excuse to wear a Red Sox shirt to work everyday.
Q. If you are not a baseball company, why do I see your banners and signs around little league fields?
A. HomeRun Automation is a proud sponsor of San Rafael Little League, Twin Cities Little League and the Canal Baseball Academy Charity.
Q. Do you handle small jobs as well? I just bought a new TV/Sonos/Router/Roku and would like it installed.
A. No thank you, that is not really what we do but I suggest hiring a pro and not the geek squad. Find a certified professional here: CEDIA
Q. I am interested in a home automation system or media room/theater, can you help?
A. We are fully booked and not accepting any new projects at this time without a referal, but I can probably refer you to someone who can help you.
Q. So do you just install Nest thermostats, Dropcams and Sonos? Is that what you mean by Home Automation?
A. No, although those are neat toys, they are not suitable for high end projects. Our systems are designed around Crestron Automation systems, the industry leader.
Q. I used a Crestron system before, it was terrible and unreliable.
A. If you had a bad experience with Crestron hardware, then it was not designed, installed or programmed correctly.
Nothing in the industry comes close to the flexibility, reliability and support of a Crestron system when programmed well.
I program Savant, AMX, Control4, Elan, RTI, Harmony, Pronto. Trust me when I tell you Crestron is the best.
Q. I have a Crestron system that needs service, can you help?
A. Probably, I specialize in rescue/take over Crestron jobs. Just type in HomeRun Automation into Crestron's Crestron's Elite Dealer Locator
Q. What's an average system cost?
A. A system can be as simple as a single TV in a penthouse apartment to a multi-million dollar automation system in a 30,000sqft, $100 million dollar estate. We've done it all.
