Jeff and his team at A Shade Above took on a complicated and very involved job at my home in Hillsborough to replace a legacy Crestron and home surveillance system, all of which was over ten years old. They recommended a Savant solution, encompassing distributed audio, video, surveillance and HVAC control, and we have been very pleased with the delivery and execution. The existing racks housing the network and related equipment were a disaster – the team took the time to understand our current and future needs, methodically rebuild the system, liaise with other third party providers during the install, and then took the time to troubleshoot everyone's work to ensure the system worked well. ASA took ownership of the entire project which made a difference. There is no hard sell on equipment – ASA incorporated existing equipment where possible, and made reasonable recommendations on new equipment to manage project costs. The installation of all equipment was excellent. Importantly, the team was very pleasant and cordial and worked around our small children with minimal disruption. I have engaged ASA on follow-up projects, and recommend Jeff and his team without reservation.”
My husband and I experienced great grief and weeks of delays when our original contractor could not get our shades to operate. After many days and many hours our decorator called Brian Yates of "A Shade Above" and he corrected everything in short order. His understanding of the products and great consumer service are the reasons I would recommend him and the entire company for the biggest and most complicated project. Besides having motorized drapes we have some battery-operated ones on Brian's suggestion. All of our products work perfectly. Thank goodness we found him.”
A Shade Above is comprised of some of the most experienced and highest quality people in the Custom Residential System market. I have had the pleasure of working with them for 15 plus years. They have made the investment in a very nice showroom in Monterey to provide their prospective customer a real life experience”
Our first experience with Peninsulators was to have new window coverings. Initially I was overwhelmed with all the options given. Tiffany was so helpful, after asking me a series of questions, she was able to determine my needs and made the decision so simple/ painless.
Later we heard about A Shade Above and all that the Experience Center had to offer. We were interested in updating our AV system and wanted to get rid of all the wires and box speakers. We were excited about the newest technology , however, we were concerned that our parents/ visitors would be unable to grasp the technology. We should not have worried, the iPad and the Savant app is so friendly we had no issues with visitors/ family being able to use it. We really love the I-Port wall charger, the iPad is always ready for use and we know where the remote is.
We also had outdoor speakers installed and now enjoy music in the backyard without having to blast the interior speakers. Music is balanced through the house and we now get to enjoy the benefits and flexibility of choosing where and what we are listening to. Currently we are adding additional listening zones in the house and love the fact that no additional controls or switches need to be added.
A Shade Above is something that everyone should Experience.
