Hire an Experienced Crestron Programmer
You want to hire a Crestron programmer with substantial experience, right? Surprisingly, many customers don’t ask about experience, but they should. We recommend you know how many years a company has been doing Crestron programming and how many Crestron projects they’ve completed. Finding out how many AV projects is not enough, but specifically how many Crestron programming projects have been completed. When it comes to Crestron programmers you have options, so you should take the time to learn about a company before awarding them your project.
We’ve been in business since 2001, over 10 years now, focusing exclusively on Crestron programming and design support. Crestron programming was not an add-on service or an afterthought. It’s what we do. To date, we’ve completed nearly 1,000 Crestron programming projects.
Hire a Crestron Programmer with Diverse Experience
A well rounded Crestron programmer has worked on several different kinds of projects including high-end residential, commercial board rooms, corporate offices, digital signage, luxury transportation, government, military and houses of worship. In addition, an experienced Crestron programmer has worked with various types of customers from home-owners and end-users to AV dealers, integrators, manufacturers and consultants.
We’ve delivered projects in nearly every environment you can think of, from typical homes to top secret war rooms. And the complexity of projects varies as well. Some Crestron projects are simple and require only one day of programming. Others require much more time.
Hire a Crestron Programmer Who’s Certified, Knowledgeable and Continues to Learn
Like experience, certification alone does not prove competence. But together, they can say a lot. A serious Crestron programming company should devote substantial time to learning about new products and keeping AV industry and programming certifications up-to-date. Many professions, like pharmacists, teachers and CPAs are required to meet continuing education requirements each year. Crestron programmers and audio visual professionals in general have few requirements to meet on a continuous basis.
At AVPA, we are constantly learning and re-certifying. For us, it’s a pleasure, not a chore. As Crestron programming experts, we enjoy doing everything possible to learn about new Crestron products, firmware updates and software techniques; because we truly enjoy what we do.
Hire a Crestron Programming Company that Specializes
Everybody has their favorite types of projects and the products they prefer to work with. Some companies choose to support multiple platforms like Crestron, AMX and RTI. It’s important that you know what platforms a programming company supports and prefers.
Since the beginning, we’ve focused specifically on Crestron. When we started in 2001 we believed that Crestron offered the most powerful, scalable solution for AV control; and we still do. We’ve surveyed several other platforms, and even completed formal training courses. But Crestron continues to be the best, so we continue to specialize in providing the best in Crestron programming and design support.
