Shop local for better service in home automation – Kawartha Media Group

Pre-Tel offers dozens of options for families in Peterborough and the Kawarthas to stay connected, take control of their energy costs, enjoy better sound quality in their home and much more.

Since 1985, the small family business has provided home automation, communications, entertainment and even security technology to both residential clients and local businesses. “We offer a warm atmosphere, unlike many of the big box stores, and we go above and beyond for our customers, from supplying the product to installation,” says Pre-Tel office manager, Lesley Tobin. “We even provide after-care for our products; at the end of the day, we just want to make our clients happy.”

They work with individuals, families, commercial clients, builders and more, sitting down with them one-on-one to really hone in on their needs. “When you talk to someone at Pre-Tel, you can build a relationship with them because you know that person will be available to speak with you next time too,” Ms. Tobin explains.

With complete home entertainment system options, communications packages, security systems, central vacuum installation and more, the friendly staff at Pre-Tel will meet with clients to determine the best products to suit their needs. Owned by brothers Blair and David Meekin, the company got its name as a Bell pre-wiring service for new homes and businesses. The team continues to offer Bell products, but now is able to provide Shaw Direct, Xplornet and other trusted brands in communications, security and entertainment technology.
