Jean and I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the new system installed by your firm at our home.

Please feel free to use us as a reference for anyone else who might be interested in your services. We have absolutely no reservation whatsoever in recommending you as the finest professional we’ve had the privilege to work with. Thank you so much for all your efforts in making our wonderful home a reality.

Jean and Joseph S., Blue Point, NY

Ed designed and installed an impressive landscape lighting system in my backyard. I continuously receive compliments on how nice it turned out. Unlike many others who I received an estimate from to do the job, Ed is not a sprinkler guy who dabbles in landscape lighting. He makes it his profession, and his knowledge, dedication and pride in his work shows in the final product. He only uses top quality products and does so at a very fair price. I consider myself to be a tough customer to please but Ed and his crew exceeded my expectations. I will use him again in the future.

Tim H., Sayville, NY

Thank you for the amazing backyard transformation!

We had no idea it would turn out as beautiful as it did. From our inside and outside Sonos audio system, to the LED lighting design you created and installed, it is all truly magnificent and protected by your high quality security cameras and DVR.

I would recommend Island SmartHomes to anyone looking for a professional, high quality and competitively priced company, who cares about providing great service. We are forever thankful to you and your team for their easy nature, creativity, dedication to details and ability to execute well and on time.

Our yard looks like a resort and we have you and your team to thank for this wonderful new living space!

Ed is fantastic. Very professional and very detailed. He went above and beyond in making sure that the work was completed on time and properly even changing his schedule to accommodate the necessary time line. Ed always responded to my questions in a very timely manner. I would highly recommend Island Smarthomes.

Alex H., Cold Spring Harbor, NY

Excellent service….a truly professional outfit. Ed was wonderful. Advice regarding equipment selection was spot on .. an accurate and thorough education for me. Installation was superb and timing punctual. Project was performed in combination with home renovation and he collaborated with our home contractor frequently. Ed requested confirmation of our satisfaction prior to accepting any compensation. Any questions or concerns (none of significance ) were immediately addressed and remedied. Communication could not have been better. The end result was outstanding as ed anticipated and enlightened me about matters I was not familiar with.

Stephen K. Poquott, NY

Ed was knowledgeable and helpful in both design and installation of the project. He Installed a house wide Sonos sound system, mounted 4 t.v.s, set up 2 surround sound systems and wired home with CAT 6 cable.

We originally had been in contact with another company who was supposed to do the work, but they flaked out on us. Ed was brought into a major project late in the game. He was still able to do the project quickly, professionally and at the price he quoted. We have been back in the house (after being out for 6 month during the renovation) for the last two weeks, and everything works just as he said it would. Ed was always accessible and responded to our questions knowledgeably. We would highly recommend him.

Pat M., Northport, NY

Ed and his crew were amazing. I live in Long Beach after Sandy I hired someone that I used in the past. He did 1/2 the job and then moved to Texas! Ed and the guys from Island SmartHomes not only fixed what the first guy did, he made sure we know how to work all the new equipment. The best thing Ed did was make a follow up appointment to make sure everything was working.

Brian G., Long Beach, NY

Ed Bradley did a wonderful job. To be completely honest, I began this project without having done this kind of work before and feeling a little overwhelmed. I did a lot of research before beginning the project. I also spoke with several vendors. I started speaking with “high end” vendors specializing in home automation in Eastern Long Island. With respect to those vendors, you initially deal with someone with limited knowledge who is supposed to walk you through the proposal process. The problem was, I had trouble getting them to answer my questions, largely because they didn’t have the detailed knowledge. Also, “high end” means expensive and, in my mind, unnecessarily so.

In dealing with Ed, you are dealing with the principal of the company and Ed has vast knowledge regarding these projects, plus he does a lot of the actual work.

Ed had great ideas and was a creative problem solver. One example is that the other vendors I spoke with were going to do the audio by installing wiring in the walls. In my case, this wasn’t new construction so it involved going into the walls. When I brought Ed to my house, he immediately suggested Sonos (a wireless audio solution). It was much less work and a very elegant solution with an intuitive interface that I use from my iPad (in fact, I use my iPad to control the Sonos, the Nest, and to view my surveillance cameras remotely).

Ed worked very neatly and is a perfectionist. Seriously. Ed wants everything to work exactly and correctly and invests the time to do so. Ed takes great pride in his work.

Also, the proposal process was very easy with Ed. First, he was incredibly thorough. Second, I told Ed that I wanted a proposal that would include everything, including specifying what I was responsible to deliver. I told Ed that I didn’t want to get half way into the job and him to say, “Well that isn’t a part of the proposal” — I wanted a proposal that, after he completed it, everything would be done and “turn-key”. So, Ed’s proposal was very detailed with all components (so I could upgrade or downgrade if I wanted to), all elements, etc. All I was responsible for was making sure there was cable service and buying the tv’s (which I could have gotten through Ed). Otherwise, everything else was in the proposal down to the smallest detail.

The result was a thorough, easy, professional, and very good outcome. I’m very happy with the entire process as well as the final result. In an installation this complex, there are always small things to be worked out, but Ed has dealt with all of them promptly and professionally.

If you are considering this kind of project, you can’t go wrong using Ed.

Peter F., Cutchogue/Huntington, NY

The job went very well. Ed walked me through the purchase; I explained what I was interested in doing and he provided me with options and recommendations. The whole system was pretty reasonable and I can expand to add cameras (which I was interested in doing) when I am ready to.

Ed and his crew were very professional and courteous. Showed up when they were supposed to and got the job done despite some outdoor weather challenges.

I would definitely recommend Ed and his crew. Although I was just interested in a security camera system, they offer many other services that I would love to have!

Donna R., Centereach, NY

Ed from Island SmartHomes gave us a comprehensive estimate for the wiring and installation of a ten camera surveillance system for our 2 story commercial building as well as the installation of a mutli zone music system.

He was professional and easy to work with keeping with a schedule that included coordination with other work that was being done at the premises. It was a difficult wiring job because of the building’s concrete walls and Ed was prepared with a well educated staff who clearly demonstrated expertise in this field. Throughout the project Ed communicated with us on a regular basis and was very friendly. We felt his price for the job was fair and accurate. Would recommend him highly.

Barbara G., Southampton, NY

Installation of complete music system in entire house and rear yard. Project included rack system in basement, all TV’s in two level home, and WiFi network throughout. The installation of the system was performed on time and within proposed budget. Follow up and service have been excellent. Superb customer service skills both in person and on the telephone. Highly recommend.

Evan K., East Hampton, NY

Island SmartHomes are all the things you want in a home contractor; professionalism, reliability, quality, competitive pricing and great results.

Ed and Bill really care about your satisfaction. The job went exceptionally well and I was thoroughly satisfied.

I give Ed and Bill high marks for the work they performed for me, and continue to support.

Tom P., Holbrook, NY

Ed and his team installed a full home theater. Installation was prompt, neat and in a word seamless. Ed took time to explain our options which really made a difference as this was all new to us.

Equally important has been his follow up , Ed is great at calling back whenever we have had questions about the system. I highly recommend Island SmartHomes.

Ted L., Sag Harbor, NY

Ed showed up when he said would and on time. Not only was Ed quick in doing what we needed to be done, he cleaned up completely. You never knew he was here .. except for the sound now coming out of the new speakers he installed. He even took a few dollars off the original estimate since the work to be done was not as much as he initially thought. A rare gem indeed. He is honest & fair. I would highly recommend him as well as call him again.

Bonni R., Port Jefferson, NY

My experience with Ed and his team has been like nothing other. For me it was between a few companies as well as Best Buy and Ed without a doubt beat everyone with his professionalism, knowledge and overall personal touch. Would I recommend this company to others? Yes and I will go one step more; if anyone wants to see his work, I’d share my place in a heartbeat! Overall, no question, Island SmartHomes is without a doubt everything I’d want in a company and personnel.

Sean G., Shelter Island, NY

Ed was great to work with, appreciated most that he put safety over anything else. We originally wanted TV installed over existing fireplace and mantle. After exploring the site, Ed said he did not feel comfortable that the mortar could hold the bolts for the large plasma TV we were installing. He was willing to walk away from the work rather than risk it. We wound up doing the work in another room and Ed lowered the price given it was less work.

In an industry riddled with fly-by-night contractors, it was refreshing to deal with a professional who takes real pride in his work and is concerned for his clients. Class act. Would definitely use again.

Liam M., Dix Hills, NY

I had a interior and exterior home hidden camera monitoring system installed. The guys worked at installing it for nearly 10 hrs. Since the cameras were hard wired ( not wireless) they worked hard and minimally disturbed my walls. I have had a few glitches due to my own exploring the remote access application too much and Ed has always been responsive when I needed help in fixing what I had done wrong.

Kathleen K., Medford, NY

Ed was very professional and delivered everything he promised in a pleasant and timely manner. Installed 4 outdoor security cameras and inside mounted recording device. Highly recommended.

Dan R., Bridgehampton, NY

Ed is a pleasure to work with. He is knowledgeable, patient and his follow up is superb. He is easily reachable by email and/or telephone. If not available, he is quick to get back to you. We had a problem syncing the volume on our cablevision box to our new tv. We called cablevision and spent an hour and a half on phone with them. They were unable to provide a solution. Ed called us on Sunday to ” walk us through” the solution. We would definitely use Ed again and will recommend him to anyone needing his services.

Lynn L., Commack, NY

A rack system was built in the basement that houses all of my cable boxes. Ed then ran cat6 wiring throughout my entire house and every TV is mounted on the wall. All TV’s operate through an infrared signal.

Ed also installed a security camera system around my house. All the cameras are hooked up to a live feed and I have an app on my iphone and ipad that allows instant access to these cameras.

In addition to the cameras and TV install, Ed also put an access point which allows for a strong wireless internet signal. He even ran extra wiring for another access point if we ever should need it.

Ed was on time, courteous and professional. He values his clientele and was a pleasure to work with. I am glad I found him for this project.

Jaysen M., Massapequa, NY

Ed was professional, prompt, knowledgeable and personable. He designed a system to meet our needs and completed the project on a timely basis. He provided training and was very responsive to questions after installation. We would highly recommend him and his company.

Tom H., Southampton, NY

Ed was a total professional who provided everything he promised. He was punctual and stayed late until the system was up and working. He continued to check in after he left. Absolutely recommend….

Alan K., East Hampton, NY

Ed was very thorough, very knowledgeable and upfront about every step of the process. We are extremely pleased with the entire experience. Thank you!

Joe C., Massapequa, NY

Ed did a fantastic job. Before he came out he asked a lot of questions and in doing so helped me select the right product (which was a less expensive alternative to which I had originally planned on going with). Extremely professional and would highly recommend him!

Bill W., Huntington, NY

Ed worked resourcefully and smartly. Very happy with his service.

Deepa S., Dix Hills, NY

Excellent work. They installed 2 speakers on my deck, and 2 speakers in the corner of my yard on a Sonos System. They were very professional, provided detailed information, excellent communication, and punctual. Couldn’t be happier.
From being flexible and quick with setting up the quote, to working to complete the job within our time requirements. They showed up on time, finished the job perfectly and went above and beyond what they had originally quoted us on. Could not be happier.

Jeff D., Port Jefferson, NY

Ed is the exception rather than the rule! In this day and age of companies that perform a service and then you don’t see or hear from them again, it is refreshing to have a company that treats you as if you are their only customer! They have been there for me for service and questions and anything else that arises. Keep up the good work!

John L., Massapequa, NY

Ed sets himself apart from the rest in this industry.

1) He shows up when he says that he is going to show up.

2) He is honest about what he can and cannot do (i.e. When he knows that mounting a TV will require carpentry work, he will not attempt to perform the work himself because he has a full understanding of his limits, better that than spending more money on getting something fixed).

3) He is highly up to date with top-notch technology equipment and the best products available on the market. Believe me, I am a hardcore geek and I can confirm this.

4) He doesn’t b.s. on pricing and/or labor. Most importantly he always approaches a project with the mindset of how can we can cut back or spend less. When something is unnecessary, he is clear and won’t take the work for the sake of making a commission.”

Maxwell W., Southampton, NY

“Upon meeting Ed I could tell he was truly a professional that was passionate about his work and the service he would be providing me and my family.

As of course I met with several other contractors, Ed was who I trusted from the beginning. The pricing was on par with the others but if I was going to leave people in my home for days at a time it had to be the right people.

The system is amazing and better than I expected. I will be using Ed and his company in the immediate future to help us set up an outdoor lighting system (another division of his company).

Thanks Ed, Fantastic job.”

Mike G., Melville NY

“We are extremely pleased with you and your company’s professionalism, product recommendations and overall installation of our system from start to finish!

I am very particular with my audio experience, as a result of many years of Deejaying and concerts attended. Furthermore, I don’t typically take time to write reviews; however the Outdoor Stereo and Televison you and your firm installed was extremely well done, you addressed all of our requests, concerns and helped educate us throughout the entire process to ensure we achieved what we were looking for.

Thank you very much and I would be happy to refer you at anytime. Job well done!!

Thank you,”

Rob and Gina C., Smithtown, NY

“Island SmartHomes and Mr. Ed Bradley are the best. I happen to be a very critical customer and one that does not settle for “average” work. I take great pride in my home and seek contractors and specialists that care and take pride in their work and do the job as though it is their own house.
Island SmartHomes fits my requirements and has never disappointed me in any way. I have had home audio work done as well as landscape lighting done by Island SmartHomes and each project was completed professionally and with incredible functionality. Ed Bradley understands his customers and aims to please. He will not cut corners and will be sure to deliver exactly what the proposal states, he does what he says he is going to do!
He is a rare professional in my opinion as it seems increasingly difficult to find such conscientious professionals. I’d like to share an example that indicates the pride and level of caring that Island SmartHomes maintains. Ed was working to conceal the wire tracks on my outside house trim and came to a sticking point. I was not home and he was concerned that I would not like the obvious and easiest way to route the wire and track. He stopped the job and would not proceed until I approved one of the two options that were possible. I have experienced other trades doing work at my home and most would go ahead and take the path of least resistance and therefore, likely the most profitable way for them. Island SmartHomes separates themselves with their pride, customer service, customer satisfaction while using only quality materials and excellent workmanship!”

Ernest G., East Moriches, NY

 “Island Smart Homes did all of the wiring for cable and Internet in our new home. Ed and his team were professional, very knowledgable, and extremely neat. As my husband and I are not too tech savy, Ed was patient in explaining all of the new features. After a recent power failure, Ed took the time to come over and check everything out. We would highly recommend using Island Smart Homes for all sound and media installations.”

Marcia K., Roslyn, NY

“Ed is one of those rare vendors that actually takes the time to understand what it is you are looking for and then presents a project with a realistic budget in mind. He is also very dedicated and takes serious pride in his work. Ed had set up my entire audio video system, internally and externally. As an example, Ed finished my backyard just before a long weekend. The next day my router went out. I sent Ed a frantic email (mainly because I had 15 kids without their wifi devices). Ed showed up at my house at 9am on a Sunday morning and spent the next 2 hours replacing the router. That’s what I call customer service. If you are looking for top notch, no cutting corners with a reasonably priced option, then Ed is the person you want to work with.”
