Adventures of an Adelaide electrician

Electrical Adventures in Adelaide

Have you ever wondered what an Adelaide electrician does on a daily basis? Recently one of our Metropolitan electricians attended a property that required a smart doorbell installation.

Many of our customers these days are opting to have a smart video doorbell installed. They have cameras that let you screen your visitors and answer the door when you aren’t home.

After a Google search for ‘electrician Adelaide‘, Nik rang Metropolitan on a Friday morning and wanted to book an electrician to supply and install a video doorbell for the following day. The call centre team advised Nik that they could have an electrician to his Adelaide property between 10 am and 12 pm on Saturday.

They also advised him that they could have an electrician at his door within the hour, however, because he had plans, he declined and booked the service for the next day. Upon arrival at Nik’s property, the electrician assessed his property and suggested a doorbell that would suit his requirements.

Nik wanted to be able to control his doorbell via an app and an LCD screen inside his house. In this instance, the doorbell had to be hard-wired. The electrician located the best spot for the doorbell and proceeded to install it. He also suggested to Nik that he should install a security camera to link to the app and LCD screen.

”What a great idea,” Nik said.

The electrician had a security camera in his van that he could install and link to the system. Just one hour later, Nik had a fully-fledged smart doorbell and security camera system. He was ecstatic with the service and said he would recommend Metropolitan Electrical Contractors to all his friends. He even offered to leave a five star review for the electrician.

Upon completion of the job, Nik opted to pay for the service using one of our interest free providers. Interest free plans allow our customers to pay off the work in manageable instalments. They come in weekly and fortnightly plans, so the choice is completely up to the customer. In this instance, Nik opted to pay off the work in fortnightly instalments with $0 deposit.

Smart doorbell and security camera installation jobs are just one of the many projects that our electricians attend on a daily basis in Adelaide. It can be anything from electric hot water concerns to complete home rewiring services, they really do it all. No job is too big or too small.
