 “We recently wanted to update our audio-visual needs in our home on Hilton Head Island. Curt and the staff of AIC are an excellent resource to serve your needs. They are very thorough and concise in their explanation and presentation of all the equipment. We incorporated a Sonos sound system that allows for music to be streamed in different zones throughout our house. We highly recommend AIC to all our friends and neighbors.”

“I recently completed my in home in Palmetto Bluff and had the pleasure working with AIC to meet all my audio video expectations. The staff at AIC was extremely helpful from start to finish. A state of the art system was designed based on my families needs. AIC worked great alongside our builder, Richard Best Homes, to ensure that everything was installed and programmed in a timely manner for our anticipated move in date. I am very appreciative of AIC’s hard work in providing “the latest and greatest” technology with my new Sonos and Lutron lighting systems. Best of all, my system is uncomplicated and user friendly. Even to my children. I enjoyed working with AIC and recommend them to homeowners to fulfill their smart home needs.”

Curt A. Ferguson, President, Greater China and Korea, The Coca-Cola Company

“We have a home in Hilton Head and have used Advanced Integrated Controls for years to install our home entertainment and smart home systems. We were so pleased to have worked with their team that we decided to use them for our newly constructed home in Asheville, North Carolina. They installed our audio, video, security system, pool and spa control system, Lutron lighting, Lutron Shades all of which I can access straight from my phone. Which is very important to us since we travel often. Their professional team exceeded my expectations through their innovation, knowledge, communication and timeliness. You wouldn’t have even noticed they weren’t local to Asheville. Very professional and made us a priority! We are very happy with our smart home in Asheville and am always impressed by their customer service. I would highly recommend Advanced Integrated Controls to anyone looking for any technological upgrade.”

– Curt A. Ferguson, President, Greater China and Korea, The Coca-Cola Company

“We built a new home on Bald Head Island in NC. In order to minimize the visual impact of a large screen TV in our living room that features a 180-degree view of the Atlantic Ocean, we came across a company called Advanced Integrated Controls (AIC) in Bluffton, SC. They showcased a feature called the “Art Lift” by Media Décor; an elegant way to conceal the television with original art.

After we learned that AIC didn’t service our area, we contacted the owner – Curtis Hubner – to find out if he could recommend a local distributor. To our great surprise, Curt offered to help us. “Help” is not really the word that describes our experience with Curt and his company… he patiently explained the ins and outs of the Art Lift to us and communicated with our builder about the installation. Curt offered to order the equipment, provide the necessary installation cut-sheets and shipped it directly to the builder. Talk about exceeding one’s expectations!

For anyone who needs quality products and an exceptional customer service experience, Curt Huber and the team at AIC is what you need. Thank you Curt, for going above and beyond.”

– Jan A. Zachariasse

“Every once in a rare while, you run into a company that not just exceeds your expectations, but that blows them away. This, is such a company. Led by an extremely astute technology savant with strong home office leadership…they are at the top of my list for electronics. In fact, they are the only people on my list. Their responsiveness is unparalleled and they have solved every problem I’ve thrown at them. Forget dealing with anyone else if you want customer service that will delight you, solutions that will surprise you and after sale service that could not be better. You can waste your time with another company – but you will come looking for these guys when the problems arise. You won’t regret investing your time with AIC – they are really at the competitive edge”

-K. Bader

“Recently we had several jobs (home theater and whole house sound system improvement) performed by A.I.C. and were extremely pleased with the results. The professionalism of the staff, communication via e-mails and phone calls, timeliness of the project completion, the use of the latest state of the art equipment and highest quality components, as well as the instructional directions for use were outstanding and truly appreciated. We highly recommend Advanced Integrated Controls for all audio and videal needs because, obviously, customer satisfaction is a VERY HIGH priority for them!!”

-Bev and Bill D

“Thanks a hundred times over for taking care of me with the new Plasma TV. Your guys did a great job with adapting to my lift and making things work. Just wanted to let you know that you and the television are much appreciated.”


“I have worked with A.I.C. for many years. If you want a vendor that shows up when they say they will; knows what they are doing; makes some creative suggestions; then A.I.C. is who you should be working with. Their pricing has always been fair. Unlike some big box store, you can talk to the owner and more importantly you can talk to his wife. All the people I have referred to A.I.C. gave them five stars!”

-Jim Maguire

“There’s so much to love about A.I.C. They are innovative, reliable, trustworthy, and always give you that personal touch. When another vendor failed to deliver and our home was in the middle of construction, Curt Hubner stepped in at the last minute and saved the day. He finished the half complete wiring, delivered equipment on short notice, and delivered a full system of audio, video switching, wireless internet, home theater, and a telephone system! The prices were more than reasonable, they delivered on time, and stood behind their work, even when some shortcomings were due to wiring issues from the previous vendor. Since that initial job, we’ve done several upgrades to our home and we’ve used A.I.C., exclusively. We wouldn’t think of using anyone else! Curt has brought several innovative ideas and equipment to our upgrades, incorporating what he learns at trade shows and training each year. Sometimes we visit their showroom just to see what’s new and to see their friendly faces. You won’t find a better team to work with than Curt and Jennifer Hubner!”

-Nate and Al Gene Davis

“We love the system that A.I.C. installed. The job was completed at the quoted price and the installation was first class”

-The Phillips Family

“Kudos to you and your staff for bringing our Palmetto Dunes home into the 21st Century. As you know, our penthouse in Atlanta has a very sophisticated Smart House which controls all of our lighting, audio, video, hvac, video monitors, and then some. Having grown accustomed to the convenience, enjoyment and sense of safety it gives us we realized it was time to bring our Hilton Head place up to snuff. From our first meeting, you immediately tuned into the mission and the rest was history. Curt’s visit to our home to get a sense of our needs started the ball rolling. The selection of devices including: audio, video, cameras, distribution system, ease of operation, and most importantly remote access to our cameras was spot on. The wiring in the walls was done while we were away so we were not inconvenienced. An amazing job and no hint of what is hidden in those walls. Especially awesome was in fact that you even had a magnificent carpenter, Dave Bear, to handle the cabinetry remodeling. The finished product looks like it was always there. We love the new system and laugh about what took us so long to make it happen. Thanks again to you and your very competent support staff. You all made it look easy.”

-Jere and Angie Garde

“I had done all my homework and knew exactly what I wanted, a 65 Panasonic Viera 3D Television. The problem was finding it. I did not trust the internet for an electronic purchase of this nature, and Best Buy did not carry this high-end product. It just so happened that on my way to one of my favorite restaurants I happened to glanced into A.I.C.’s showroom window and low and behold, there on the floor was a huge carton that read: 65 Panasonic Viera 3D TV. I walked in and in a discussion with Curt, the owner, I found out that indeed this particular TV was difficult to get. The one in the box has just arrived for another customer. Curt said he could get one for me but I might have to wait month for delivery. To make a long story short, I placed my order and in 7 days Curt and his staff installed my dream TV. Not only was the delivery prompt, but the technical assistance was superb. Curt, Jennifer, and staff have been very responsive to me whenever I have had any questions and made me feel not only do I have an electronic support network, but friends who really care. For high-end audio visual service I highly recommend A.I.C”

-Bill Gillespie

“When we remodeled our home, we were in a quandary as to what to do with our televisions. A friend suggested that we call Curt at Advanced Integrated Controls. We did so and it proved to be an extremely wise decision. Curt was extremely helpful in designing a plan for our home. His product expertise was beyond compare and allowed us to get the proper equipment at a very reasonable price. Since we rent our home in the summer, we have been in need of services on occasion. Curt’s prompt attention and customer service is second to none on the island. We recommend their services to anyone.”

-Dave and Maggie

“Jen Hubner: I just wanted to thank you for the excellent service we received recently with A.I.C. We had a problem with our renters understanding remote systems in our home, and they constantly needed to be re-programmed. You fixed our problem in a timely and efficient manner and we have gotten many compliments on how easy our remote is to operate all of our systems: TV, Radio, DVD, ALL controlled with one unit.”

-Joe B.

“From the start, Jen was very helpful in working with me to get around the DirecTV disaster I had experienced. Your two installers were very professional and did a great job setting up the new system. Thanks for the great job!”


“We were extremely please with our decision to have Advanced Integrated Controls (A.I.C.) perform the upgrade to our current AV systems throughout our home. Curt and his team were knowledgeable, honest, and extremely professional. We would not hesitate to recommend A.I.C. for any of your A/V requirements.”

-Joe and Maria Duggan

“The guys you sent over were extremely diligent and conscientious, and cleaned up very well after themselves. I thought they were great and reflected well on your company.”

-D. Leitch

“I am writing this to let you know how happy I am with the electronic entertainment services you provided at my home in Sea Pines. As a part time owner it is unbelievably difficult to acquire these types of services because we are not in the area enough to find just the right person. I had been so frustrated with my TV and stereo that I hated to even think about coming to Hilton Head and dealing with the mess. We decided to check out the possibilities and honestly you were our last stop that day. We had made appointments with other firms and on our way to the car from your store I told my wife to call the other people and cancel the appointments. Your choice of equipment was perfect. The system is top notch but is easily used even by our guests with very few instructions. I appreciate your being able to complete things while we were not in the area so that we could enjoy the system next time down. I truly feel we got a good value for the system we purchased. At this point, I really look forward to coming to the island in part to enjoy our system. Thanks for everything.”

-Dr Robert Clark

“Thanks, always a pleasure working with your firm.”


“AIC is a class act! We very much appreciate all the help; you folks have built a great business.”


“We are so pleased to have worked with Jennifer and Curt Hubner and their team on the A/V upgrades and new equipment purchases for our Hilton Head home. Working remotely on a renovation is always a challenge, but with their excellent and timely communication, product and tech knowledge and customer responsiveness, the project went very, very smoothly. They even helped us navigate problems with our cable provider by going above and beyond the scope of their installation to make sure everything was working correctly within our requested timeframe. I would highly recommend them and they will be our “go to” company for any technology needs in the future!”

-Tom & Christin Spurr

“My wife and I purchased a home in Hilton Head and wanted a complete audio company to purchase the electronics, recommend / program them, coordinate installation of equipment while working with cable company. AIC and their people coordinated this entire process for us within our recommended timeline. We are very satisfied with the finished product and would recommend them to others.”

-Mark Hessinger

“We are pleased with the solution offered to us by Curtis Hubner and Advanced Integrated Controls. In fact, our level of satisfaction was such that we directed an AV business near our other home in Pennsylvania to duplicate the system in it’s entirety. Our hope now is that they can match the expertise and professionalism of the staff at Advanced Integrated Controls. Garth I can say that I was extremely pleased with your work. Your technicians were very knowledgeable, efficient, and courteous. They arrived on time and got my system up and working properly. By far the best DirecTV installers I have ever work on my equipment.”

-Paul Bradican

“AIC is a terrific outfit…..not only did we find them very knowledgeable and interested in ensuring we purchased quality product/equipment, but was even more impressed by their responsive Customer Service attitude. We have had equipment issues right before we were expecting renters, and they bent over backwards to address these issues and get our equipment back up and running as soon as possible. Highly recommend them to anyone looking for a top notch, responsive audio/video company.”

-Rob Abele

“We would like to express our thanks to AIC for the experience that we recently had in replacing three major TV sets and DVD’s in our home. The communications, the instillation and follow-up by AIC made the whole transition smooth and uncomplicated. We cannot say enough for what a pleasure it is to have technically competent people working with you before, during and after when installing today’s complicated systems. Our many thanks to AIC for a great job from start to finish .”

-Tom & Meg Jackson

“I used the expertise of AIC for my newly constructed home in Hilton Head. It was great working with Curt and Jennifer in the planning phase of my home along with my architect, then to see their work come to fruition when the home was built. I could not be more pleased. They handled all of my audio-visual and computer needs including the televisions, computers, indoor/outdoor sound system, and telephones. They are real pros. I have had little problems over the last 3 years, and any time I call, AIC is prompt with their service. I have recommended them to friends and continue to do so. Check them out!”

-Ruth Bartlett, Sea Pines Plantation

“i am happy to say we had a great experience with AIC. they were very professional, neat and polite. we could not be happier with in installment of our 4 tv’s. thank you and CURT.”

-The Grossmans

“My experience with AIC was follows …..they arrived on time and they did what they said they were going to do …. they did it professionally and courteously…. I found them to be extremely knowledgeable, patient and excellent communicators…..I am not a techno genius and have a 6 year old hybrid surround sound, DVD ,CD system which needed a complex programming of universal remote.. they did the job, I pushed the wrong button and as a result they had to return the next day and reprogrammed it …. They did it without complaint and charge…I certainly would use them again !”

-Christina Boldrick

“Jennifer, just wanted you to know that working with your group was first class. Your prompt response and follow through was greatly appreciated. Even though our old system was very complicated, Bret found a way to use what we had installed and upgraded to the new system. Keep up the good work.”

-Paul Kinsey

“AIC is one of the best finds on Hilton Head! Just moved here from Santa Barbara and had to leave my beloved home stereo there Did my internet research, ran across AIC and thank heavens I did. From the very first phone call I knew I was in good, professional hands and had made the right choice. Came to the house for a consultation and helped confirm the SONOS system I had chosen would be perfect. Within a week or so AIC was back installing my dreamy, new, competitively priced, wireless whole house audio system. GOOSEBUMPS!..seriously from head to toe listening to my new sound system. I can’t thank, AIC, Jennifer and Joe enough for the wonderful experience I had. Customer service at its finest!!!”

-Diane Chandler


Curtis & Jen:

Just a quick note to let you know what a great job Joe did at our house with the installation of the Lutron Shades.  Joe’s excellence included his measurements, following up as appropriate including with Chris Bell at Bell Integrated Home Solutions, being extremely careful in our house moving furniture, putting down rugs for the ladders, washing his hands when touching the Lutron Fabric and on and on … outstanding!

Finally, we had an issue with the shade lengths being a little different.  He called Lutron and figured out a solution!  Again, outstanding!


-John Leonard


Dear Joe,

I just wanted to reach out again to thank you so much for all the time and attention you gave our Lutron shades.  From the very beginning, explaining the product and walking me through the selection process, to working with Roger to help identify and correct potential framing issues, to the time consuming and often frustrating fabric issue, you and your team always showed up.  You always maintained communication regarding dates and times, arrived prepared to work, and moved carefully and pleasantly throughout our home.   You and the entire AIC program have been a pleasure to work with.

Thank you…
Deborah (and Harry) Hurst
