UltraMedia noticed an increase in the requests for retrofit work a couple of years ago. Many residential AV contractors have avoided retrofit work at all costs, because it is difficult, and always presents an unexpected challenge or two. We have grown to pride ourselves on our retrofit capabilities. It takes a talented team to anticipate and overcome the situations that are unique to each custom home AV installation. More often than not, a retrofit AV job requires us to cut into walls to run wire, which will require the client to patch and paint after the installation is complete. Often, the existence of firebreaks will further complicate the ability to run wire for the home technology.
Again, we're fortunate to have some wireless solutions like lighting control from Lutron.
And there are wonderful wireless touchpanels, such as those from RTI.
