Having just had fibre installed we were looking for a wifi solution that provided coverage throughout our house and solve problems that we were currently experiencing. Dan was flexible enough to meet with us on the weekend, took time to understand what we wanted to achieve and developed a solution that would work.
The work was completed within a week and to a very high standard. Dan and the team focused on the little things like making sure the new wireless access points were invisible around the house which was exactly what we wanted.
Great service, and a great solution to our first world problem. We’ll definitely be making use of services in the future in relation to home audio.
Above and Beyond…
We recently used the services of Chris Du Toit from iPower for the installation of a home entertainment system. We found Chris to be extremely personable and patient in designing a system to meet our needs. He completed the job in a timely manner and impressed us by going above and beyond to ensure that we got a solution that worked for us. We have no hesitation in recommending his services.
Major renovations, Power Savings + SONOS!
We went through a major rebuild and renovation project. The existing house had very little cabling and lights for the size of it. Chris listened to our brief and gave us a solution that kept both my husband and me happy. We rewired the whole house which allowed for all the modern home technology automation devices. We are also future proofed to add any new technologies.
We decided to use LED lighting throughout and this includes awesome strip lighting in the lounge. What has amazed me is that we have increased the house size by 40% which includes a lot more lights – we are both now working from home so someone is there all the time versus before when we were both working in the city AND within two months of having the system in place our power bill has decreased in the summer months by up to 50%. This makes the return on investment brilliant.
We are intensive power users with all our gadgets – so thanks to Chris and iPower for his advice on making the solution work for us and being so easy to deal with… Now about that Sonos system… !!!
As a techno savvy consumer, I thought I knew what I wanted in an integrated home theatre system. How wrong was I…
I wanted to reuse my Surround Speaker (on stands) system, but my wife wanted a whole new look that didn’t include these on show. Talking my problem over with Chris, he opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities. Given a brief of hiding a surround speaker system, Chris sourced and installed “invisible” speakers, then integrated my new LED TV, MySky, Blu-Ray 3D Player, Apple TV and Airport Express through a state-of-the-art AV Receiver.
The end result was a totally hidden speaker system that bewilders everyone who has visited and sounds so incredible. The unsightly speakers on stands are gone and the integrated system is completely controlled through one remote with a press of a button, replacing 17 remotes! I can even operate the sound system remotely through my iPhone and IPad.
My wife loved the “one touch” remote so much, I even got her one for the bedroom system. Thanks Chris, now for that security system…
Uncluttered Gadget-less Music…
Hi Chris – Thanks for coming along and showing how to have uncluttered gadget-less music in my life.
Best man for the job!
iPower installed a media centre and internal / external sound system in our home. The service provided by the team at iPower was second to none, with the work having been completed in a very short timeframe and to the highest standard.
Chris is passionate about his work and an expert in his field; we found that his knowledge of his products is outstanding. He was always happy to help when required, and always prepared to go the extra mile to ensure that we were happy with the work.
The best man for the job, hands down – very highly recommended!
Great range of work…
We would like to extend our appreciation for all you have done for us Chris – we have emerged from the whole exercise having gained a great friendship.
To whom It may concern… My Wife and I are both in our mid seventies. Due to inadequate lighting in our kitchen area, some modifications were required and Chris of iPower was initially given the task of installation of a new lighting system. While carrying out this work, some discussion took place about all the untidy cablesfor telephone, plug sockets etc visible in the kitchen. Chris immediately set to and relaid the cables causing the problem in the kitchen, placing them all out of sight.
We also had a mass of cables servicing our Television, Sky decoder as well as an entertainment amplifier, speakers etc. Chris suggested that he could rectify the TV cable problems by mounting the television set on the wall. The cabling being installed out of sight, inside the wall cavity. Having been impressed with the versatility of Apple Tv, as well as wishing to involve our iPads with our entertainment system, we asked Chris if this could also be considered. Our initial experience of Chris’ abilty to help us, as well as our impression of the thoroughness, neatness and his abilty to solve problems, we decided that we would ask Chris if he could install the Apple TV and set up the whole system for us, inviting him to give us a quote for the complete installation. It was also agreed that we would also benefit by using one universal remote control instead of a number of individual remotes.
Having accepted Chris’ quote, a little over one month has passed since the installation. We are more than satisfied with the installation as well as Chris’ readiness to call to assist in sorting out minor ‘hiccups’ we have in adjusting to this modern technology. All the workmanship was carried out to the highest standards, including cleaning and vacuuming any dust created. Thanks to iPower.
Complete control over my home – all run from my iPad…
I was having trouble with my TV and sound system so I spoke to my existing provider. He told me that it was too much for him and referred me on to Chris du Toit from iPower.
My set up was 15 years old and had seen better days so I asked Chris to come over and take a look. I’m a layman when it comes to technology and I didn’t really know what I wanted but I wanted to understand my options.
Chris is very personable and genuine as well as being a technological whizz. He set up a basic Sonos system for me on the spot, just to show me how it worked. The system really sold itself. As soon as it was set up I made the decision to run with it.
Chris left the SONOS bar and speakers with me so I could play around with them and he came back a week or so later. Then I asked what else I could do to add to the system. Now I have speakers in all four corners of my apartment, along with Apple TV and Netflix. I have complete control over the whole feel of my apartment – all run from my iPad.
I have been very impressed with Chris, he always follows up and he has great expertise in his area. Chris has since gone on to help my parents get their music system set up. I would be happy to refer Chris from iPower to anyone needing good value home automation services
Bathroom Renovation creates family haven…
I never show anyone our new bathroom without turning the music on… It is the ‘wow’ factor that makes our bathroom extra special. For me, the bathroom is now a haven where I can be completely at ease. The lighting and the music combine to create a beautiful sanctuary – I can’t wait for winter!
Chris really knows his stuff. His technical skill and attention to detail are impressive and he has a deep understanding of all the new technology. We waited for six years to do our bathroom and bringing Chris in to help has been absolutely worth every cent. Renovating is a big investment and we know that our bathroom is the best it can possibly be.
