WHAT IS ELECTRONIC INTEGRATION?

Streamline life at home and create the audio, video and lighting environment of your dreams.

If you can imagine it in your daily life, chances are we can automate it. Imagine the freedom of being able to control and automate your home’s lights, window shades, TV, audio and intercom systems through your own smartphone or TV remote. No more trying to remember if you locked the door or turned off the lights; no more wrestling with speaker cords and docking stations.

Just automate, then get back to doing the things that really matter.

Here are a few of our areas of expertise:

  • whole home audio
  • automated lighting, dimmer switches and lighting controls
  • motorized shades and daylight harvesting
  • home theater and media room design and installation
  • thermostat control and automation
  • A/V integration for conference rooms
  • surround sound systems
  • acoustical design and engineering
  • wireless speakers and home audio integration
  • plus much more!

WHY INTEGRATE YOUR HOME WITH CUSTOM ELECTRONICS? 

Put your home to work for you so you can spend more time doing what you love. Integrating and automating your home’s lighting, audio, media and other electronics helps you focus less on managing devices and measuring energy usage.  It also allows you to focus more on what matters most at home; living your life.  Here are a few more reasons to integrate your home.

  • The convenience to control your home from across the world.
  • Lower your home’s carbon footprint.
  • Integrated technology even your kids can brag about.
  • Manage less, play more.

RECYCLE AND HELP LOCAL CHILDREN, EVERYBODY WINS

CAPS Recycle Fire Truck 2

We often recycle material by shipping it to a recycling plant.  It is certainly a great way to help save the environment.  However, Bekins recently found a way to reuse some material and help local school children at the same time.

BIG BOX FIRE TRUCKS

Brian, our Coopersville Warehouse Coordinator, recently delivered some big boxes to the Coopersville Area Public Schools.   The boxes once protected some of our biggest appliances, now they are nurturing the imagination of local preschool children.  Members of the school used their art skills to transform the boxes into large fire trucks that now reside in Alex Marin’s West Elementary Preschool classroom.

“It is really cool, the kids love it,” Marin said.  “It gets used every single day and the children are thrilled about it.”

Marin also said that the Preschool staff is “extremely grateful” that Bekins not only donated the boxes, but also delivered them to the school.

We are happy to see a carboard box, that would have normally been crushed in a baler and sent off to a recycling plant, be reused in such a helpful way right here in our West Michigan community.

WE RecyclE each day as michigan’s greenest appliance dealer

We work hard every day to reduce our carbon footprint at Bekins. Our Coopersville Operations Center was built to house the storage space, cardboard balers and other machinery necessary for us to recycle over 90 percent of all waste that goes through our facility! That includes cardboard, cores, plastic ties, film, styrofoam and even old appliances.

It requires an extensive amount of space and money, but it is completely worth it when we are able to make such a large impact on the environment.  Our efforts have helped save 2,330 gallons of oil; 159,880 gallons of water; 162,185 Kilowatt Hours of energy; 1,370 pounds of air pollution effluents; 85 cubic yards of landfill space and 388 trees.

Look below to see a complete breakdown of how much our Coopersville Operations Center recycles in one year and how it helps our planet.
