Tell us the story of your company.
Amanda Meltzer: Techmaven was started with the fundamental desire to build personal relationships and form long-term partnerships with our clients. Our goal as a company is to provide custom solutions to security issues and any home automation needs while keeping a high-end luxury finish.
Our company got into the security industry with a desire to bring cutting-edge security products to homeowners and small businesses that blend seamlessly with the client’s aesthetic.
What solutions/services does your business offer in the security industry? And what makes your offerings/company unique?
AM: Techmaven works with clients to assess, consult, design, and install security systems on any of their properties as a custom systems integration company. We specialize in complete property security and optimize the end user experience to create safer environments where people work, live and play. Alarm systems, access control, electronic locks, PTZ, infrared and thermal cameras are all available to provide our clients with the peace of mind and comfort that their security requirements are being met.
What is something we might not know about your company – or something new you are doing in security?
AM: Security systems don’t need to stand out; Techmaven designs and installs systems that are virtually inconspicuous and blend seamlessly with your home automation system. All our systems are entirely custom, making them very discreet and able to blend in well with a high-end environment.
Customers are looking for a single point of contact for all of their home automation, communications and security needs. Bringing the ability to control and access your security systems from anywhere is necessary nowadays, and Techmaven designs all their systems to give customers this ability.
