My research kept pointing me to Omni Pro II as the current leader in flexibility and compatibility for home automation even before I stumbled upon Josh and Mile High. When you look at the sites of several of the on-line sellers of this type of equipment, it looked to me that most of the equipment was either compatible with, or trying to directly compete with, HAI. The problem for me was that I was willing to figure things out given the proper information, but most of the information on the web is geared to either installers or programmers that are already in the field, and not necessarily to the lay person.
The first time I ‘talked’ to Josh at Mile High, and ran past him what I was looking for, and what I had found in my searches, he immediately impressed me with his knowledge of the field, and the amount of time he was willing to spend dealing with me, especially considering I had not spent a dime with him. Several of our first emails back and forth were simply him answering my questions, and then asking me more questions so he could understand what I wanted to do. Josh has been in the field as an installer, and obviously has a passion and a forte as a programmer. So he is able to speak to both aspects, depending upon what you may need. He immediately confirmed my interest in the Omni Pro II. He also is very aggressive about learning the latest technologies and keeping up to date on new things that come to the marketplace. Several times in our emails he would tell me about this new item that just been introduced at CEDIA or a new item that would fit in great with what I was trying to do.
Amazingly enough, all of this was accomplished thru email and online downloading directly to my system from their office in Colorado.
Having experienced Josh’s expertise and outstanding attention to detail, I later contracted with him to design a complete system for a new house under construction in Vermont. He prepared detailed wiring drawings and equipment lists for the local installer which allowed for a very time and material efficient installation and was readily available for questions and any assistance whenever they needed it.
Needless to say, I wouldn’t hesitate to use Mile High Automation for all future projects of mine and highly recommend their services to anyone considering any type of automation or current technology for their home.

We then browsed the web hoping to be able to purchase the components for home automation and then do it ourselves. After evaluating features and capabilities we selected HAI as our system of choice. We are not real do-it-yourselfers though, and we quickly learned that there was way more to designing a system than we knew how to do, and the web stores weren’t very helpful.
While doing web research I saw the Mile High website. I talked to Josh about what he offered and the process for working with him on getting a system. I explained that we did not want to do the wiring and initial install ourselves, but did want to have enough knowledge of the system that we could program and upgrade it ourselves in the future if we wanted.
Josh seemed to understand exactly what we were looking for. He started by helping us explore the possibilities of what a system could do and what options we had, and then helped us narrow down what we did and didn’t want. After several rounds of back-and-forth on the configuration he created a fully documented system design and quote, and then put us in touch with a company who could do the pre-wire and the system install for us (working with him remotely).
We are now living in the house and I can say that working with Josh on the home automation system was the smoothest part of our construction experience. He provides an extremely high level of service, and was complexly organized and thorough through the entire process. He is very easy to work with and was exceptionally responsive when we had questions or needed something. And the price of our entire system including installation was about half of what the local dealers were charging.
The HAI system that we have is awesome! In addition to security, climate control, lighting control, etc., Josh configured and provided a whole-house audio system that we absolutely love. We were initially going to leave the audio out until later, but we’re really glad we got it. My wife was a tough sell on the home automation system at first as we were going through the process, but now she proudly shows it off as she shows people our home; she loves it.
Our experience of getting a home automation system from Josh and getting it installed has really been exceptional. I have already recommended Josh to friends who are building houses and will continue to do so. As we use more features on the system he’s always right there when we have questions or need assistance. If you’re considering a system from Josh and want to speak to someone who’s been through the process with him, please ask Josh for my contact information and I’ll be happy to talk or email with you about it.

I knew I could do a lot of the install work (with guidance), if I got some help with initial setup and programming. Mile High’s business model fit this need perfectly. Josh was happy to answer all of my questions, and we worked out a system within my budget.
I got custom DVD’s that demonstrated setup & installation, and Josh was there for support when I had a question. Installation took some time, but it was my time, and done at my pace. I now have a great HAI system installed at a fraction of what I could have paid, with lifetime support.
I highly recommend Mile High Automation!

I wanted to make sure that I wired my home correctly and I continued to do research on automation systems. I interviewed several automation contractors in my area and even got several bids, but all the proposals were completely outside my budget. Then I discovered Mile High Automation.
I contacted Josh and he invited me to his home to show me his system – I was very impressed. His system had all the components that I wanted – audio, video, HVAC control and lighting. Mike High is setup to assist the do-it-yourselfer and Josh gave me the confidence that I could do the work myself. With the labor cost savings, I could afford to have a system now. Josh took a copy of my plans and gave me free design advise on wiring and setting up my system. With this information, I set-off to pre-wire my home before drywall went up. While pulling wiring was no small task - over 40 hours of work and nearly 7000 feet of wire – I got the job done and had set the foundation for my system.
My wife and I are now in our house and we love our system. I purchased an HAI Omni Pro II with HAI UPB lighting. It was very easy to install the board and switches and Josh pre-configured the system for me. I simply installed the Omni Pro II, make my connections and plugged it in – it was very easy. Programming lighting scenes is simple to master and Josh is always available to answer questions. I’m still working on my system, but will soon be able to control all lights in the house, close an accidentally open garage door from my bed, and access my system from my office to turn on the air conditioner before I get home.
The whole process was fun and I estimate that I saved over $8,000 to $10,000. Anyone who has basic computer skills and is willing to spend time pulling wires would have no trouble getting a great, low cost system for not a ton of money. I highly recommend Mile High Automation.

Everything was programmed by Josh directly over the internet. In one instance I was on the phone with Josh explaining what I needed. The next moment it was programmed by him and everything worked the way I wanted it. Without the personal support from someone like Josh I recommend not to buy these type of systems by yourself.

After comparing several vendors I contacted Mile High Automation. They did not disappoint me. Not only did I receive very good instructions/documentation and competitive pricing, but also generous help in setting up and programming of the equipment. Many vendors are unapproachable after you paid up, but I am happy to say that Mile High Automation is always there for you.

Josh took calls for help/guidance and emails on weekends, evenings, and even when he was on vacation out of the country! He worked with me every step of the way, from looking at our original building plans and making suggestions/improvements, to helping walk me through the final touches of installing my keypads and software. Next time I embark on a home automation project, I’m certainly going to call Mile High Automation!

He was a great help, very patient and incredibly responsive when I was trying to figure out how to do my self-install. He provided options, instructions, and even the tools I needed to install my Nuvo Grand Concerto, AM/FM/XM tuner, and MP3 server as well as 6 zone keypads and 6 rooms of speakers.
Mile High Automation is the best of all worlds. Not only are they extremely competitive with price, the level of service and support far exceed what you would expect given the great prices. The real discriminator when dealing with Josh is the service, knowledge, and advice that comes along with dealing with Mile High Automation. Don’t even think of attempting a self-install with anyone else. And unless you like spending more than is necessary, don’t go anywhere other than Mile High Automation. Anyone else will take your money (and lots of it) and tell you why you can’t possibly do this yourself. Trust me, if I can do it, you can.
To put it in perspective: With what I saved by working with Josh, I was able to buy a new pool table, 250 bottle wine cellar, new bike, and snow tires…Oh…And I took my wife to Sedona AZ for a weeks vacation. All things that wouldn’t have happened without Mile High Automation.

I remember picking up the phone back in January and talking to Gerard about my grand plans on a regular guy budget and he put my mind at ease. I wanted to plan for everything: audio, video, security, and automation but only implement the parts I could afford now. He worked with me to make sure everything I needed was designed and put in the walls prior to sheet rock.
I have now been in the house a few months and my absolute favorite thing to show off in the new house is the security and automation system. My friends and family are stunned with system Mile High Automation put together for me. Of course since I performed the self install everyone wants to know how I figured out how to do everything. I’d love to keep that a secret and just have everyone thinking I’m really just that smart but eventually I have to tell them that Mile High Automation listened to what I wanted, and partnered to make it happen. Of course I did have to pick up the phone and make that first call…… Maybe I am that smart. Thanks again Gerard! You know I’ll be calling when I am ready to expand my system.
