Smart Home Solutions
About Us; established in January 2005. PDM Automation was created on years of audio visual and electronic lighting experience, the foundation of this came from my career as a licensed electrician. Quite simply, it is a hobby I turned into a wonderful, never dull moment, always educating career. I’ve worked with many clientele over and over again, earning a reputation of loyalty, tenacity, humorous and above all, professional.
Not just limited to your home, the works extend to marine craft, mobile homes, holiday homes and farms local to NSW and interstate to applicable clients.
The design concept is simple. Every client’s level of computer and technology skills is evaluated and applied to a suitable system. The final product will always end in a user-friendly setup, no matter how basic or complex the construction. Systems are designed to have the availability to be upgraded and modified as new electronics and services are introduced to the consumer market.
Fully warranted services:
12 month labour warranty is on all larger installations, one hour service call charges apply to all clientele outside of this.
So why consider PDM Automation? Aren’t there enough home automation companies out there. Well as good as I’m am at my job, I don’t consider myself to be the best. However am I the best for you?
I am the brand, not the product. My business thrives and survives on customer referrals.
He takes his product personally and service after install is fantastic!
I have known Brad since 2004. At the time, Brad was the contracted electrician for one of the first companies in Australia who installed residential automated systems that integrated lighting, motorised blinds, audio / visual entertainment, heating/cooling, security, internet, remote access, voice activation, digital access to 1TB of music with artwork (System). The System had to be reliable because I am a quadriplegic, so any failures can seriously compromise my safety. During the install I found that Brad knew more about integrating the technology than the company who contracted him. The System cost $200,000 at the time. When it came to upgrading the System, I called Brad. His wealth of knowledge from having been at the cutting edge of technological advances since home automation began, means that the upgrade cost a fraction of the original System. This is because Brad is continually up to date with the latest hardware developments and how to integrate them most cost effectively. When you are installing a home automation System you need an installer with honesty and integrity because with advanced technology, an inexperienced client can easily be taken for a ride. Brad has integrity and honesty in spades. He takes his product personally and service after install is fantastic. Brad is always up to date with patches should Telstra make some stupid upgrade which has knock on effects to the System. A home automation System provides a wonderful home experience, but your world falls apart if something fails. Therefore, you want to do it right the first time, and have quality back up support to ensure an issue is fixed before it has consequences. Brad has it all covered.
Home Entertainment Customer
Brad has helped us to manage our home entertainment system for many years. He has been patient with us and very supportive as we have progressively updated our system and learnt how to use it. He has worked within our budget and given us excellent advice. He has helped us to replace and upgrade when we have needed to and he has also been a great help in problem-solving any difficulties when they occur.
Brad is professional and personable, always respectful and obliging.
A Pleasure to work with!
Brad has been our home automation specialist for over 2 decades in our various homes. It has been a pleasure to work and consult with Brad as this space has evolved. As a senior sparky who has worked on many high level residential homes, he has critical knowledge and hands on experience in relation to the installation and implementation of systems. His product knowledge and continuing education in this space is a credit to him. Brad has a practical, no nonsense approach who takes great pride in his work. We regard Brad highly for his integrity and professionalism and would be pleased to offer a verbal reference if requested.

Great Advice & Service
"Great help & advice for updating my Hi Fi Audio. Based on examining my needs & existing system, I had Brad supply a new Arcam AVR20, Rega Phono amp and will follow up on speakers at a later date."
Brad has been providing an unparalleled level of service to my family for 17 years in the areas of entertainment, sound system and other technologies for home and business. I have referred many clients to him for this reason. He has advised us on the design, purchase and installation of tv, cable tv, sound and information technology systems. He has done the installations himself and has been effective and generous in co-ordinating and working with other trades. Brad has a very commercial approach and is always ahead of the game on new technologies and developments in his field. On the occasions when we move house, Brad has been able to work with existing technology on site to bring it up to an effective level to suit our needs. I can always rely on Brad to be available to advise at the moment a problem arises, with speedy resolution guaranteed. Brad is a delight to deal with and have around, utterly reliable, highly efficient and absolutely trustworthy. He provides great value for money.

Attention to Detail!
Brad’s attention to detail is second to none. Following the first major installation for us in 2005 of a BOSE surround sound audio visual system we made comment to him regarding his excellent work, his reply – “I do every installation as if it was in my own home”. This has been proved correct in respect of all the work he has carried out for us in the 17 years since. Most recently of a multi-room Sonos system and an Elan smart home automation system including security/surveillance and media/Foxtel IQ5. We have no hesitation in recommending Brad as a personable and knowledgeable professional with a ‘can do’ attitude.

What a star! Nothing is a problem, he is always up-to-date with the latest technology. I couldn’t recommend highly enough.
Patient & Kind
I met Brad when he was working for my elderly father in integrating a TV/Foxtel/Audio system in his home . Brad spent considerable time in setting up a system that was easy for my father to use. Brad was so patient and kind. From that time onwards, Brad has been our go-to-guy. We have used him in 5 properties since (one in the Illawarra) and have never been disappointed.
