Why Choose Us?

  • As a single contractor, we offer an integrated solution

With Clever Living there is no need to engage separate contractors. We have years of experience in designing and integrating home solutions for data, security, lighting and blind control, custom automation and audio visual. Many companies can install isolated systems, however it takes a great deal of forethought to integrate many elements successfully, and to provide ongoing long-term client support.

  • Collaboration services

We work with architects, interior designers, builders, project managers and home owners to create successful design solutions. Our detailed AutoCAD designs can be easily integrated with project CAD drawings which in turn can be presented promptly and easily to clients or for tender.

  • We provide unbiased solutions and advice

We custom order equipment for each project we design, therefore outcomes are based on optimum solutions and not influenced by stock levels or brands carried. When designing, we take into consideration equipment functionality, reliability, longevity, ease of use and equipment housing. As part of our standard service we provide the little extras free of charge such as joinery design advice, which is an important consideration in preventing audio visual equipment from overheating and failing prematurely.  We can assist with arranging subscription services with providers such as Telstra and Foxtel.

  • We provide a written guarantee on our work

Our clients have peace of mind knowing we will stand by our work.  We provide a written guarantee that all Clever Living installed systems will work reliably and consistently from a client and Clever Living agreed date.

  • Great customer service and support

Client support is an important component of our service and we provide one-on-one unlimited training and assistance for up to 12 months following project completion. We then stay in contact with our clients through ongoing preventative maintenance and support programs where should an unforeseen issue arise, we respond to clients within 24 hours.

Don’t take our word for it, read what our customers say!

“Clever Living has been our audio visual partner for over 12 years, during which time we have seen its
business grow whilst their staff maintain a personal yet totally professional approach to any service requirement or new project. I approached Clever Living because of the friendly and professional attention given to all requests, no matter how minor. Clever Living helped me by confirming back its understanding of our scope, then delivering cost-effective solutions in a timely manner. The result was a totally professional
approach to the installation and ongoing maintenance of our audio visual facilities. One thing I liked was their willingness to research a solution and their detailed quotations, inclusive of all equipment and materials down to the cents, with no hidden costs or variation charges. I found the experience hassle free and refreshingly open and honest."

“We approached Clever Living because we require global-leading AV technology that allows our business to expand. Clever Living helped by really understanding and clarifying our business goals before proposing a well thought out proposal. The result was an outstanding solution that achieved our business needs and budget constraints. One thing I liked was that their solution was future-proofed to allow efficient upgrades. I found the experience enriching and despite technical issues, Clever Living owned the project to ensure a positive

“We have implemented a new meeting room technology design by Clever Living at Yarra Valley Water, which helped us to merge several inputs in one place. It meant less fuss and is easy for anyone to understand how to use various setups in one room. The greatest advantage we found is once it’s setup, it’s very robust and easy to use.  Having the iPad to control all the settings in one place was the way to go. We already feel we are in the future with this new technology. It gives us a competitive edge compare to other company’s and show our stakeholders and visitors that we are always ahead when it comes to technology. I would highly recommend Clever Living to anyone who wants to implement futuristic technology in meeting rooms/homes. It’s very important to note that not only  does Clever Living have competitive pricing, but they have great staff who are always willing to help at the shortest possible notice. One thing they excel in the most is support after implementation, which is difficult to find in this age. Everyone wants business but, when it comes to support, not all companies are willing to help. Clever Living comes out top in the service area as they are always there to help available on very short notice.”
