Bryan takes huge pride in his workmanship, using only the best quality product, state-of-the-art test equipment, and leaving a tidy finish lasting for years to come.

What others are saying about us...
Just a quick note to say thank you for setting up our UHF Antenna at Otakiri Rd, and the quick efficient service you provided. The picture is excellent and life is good.
"Great job with the aerial and TV. All going like a dream and the old video/dvd player too. Very happy with your service."
Russell and Carolyn, Thornton.
"Fantastic service. went above and beyond to make sure I got the best aerial reception, even did a bit extra at no charge. Would highly recommend to anyone. "
"Just wanted to say how great your service was and how fantastic the HD reception is - even way out here in Poroporo!! The quality of the install, the communication, the price, and the follow-up - all excellent!! Thank you."
"I highly recommend Bryan at IntegriTech. Excellent service, advice, communication and punctuality. Bryan was unsure as to whether Freeview would work efficiently via UHF aerial, due to our close proximity to the Manawahe hills. Aerial is working very well after some minor tweaks. Thanks Bryan for your excellent service."
Tony & Val, Otakiri.
Freeview: UHF aerial or Satellite?
Freeview offer two options for receiving their service over the air: via UHF Antenna and satellite dish.
The UHF service, known as Freeview|HD, is essentially Freeview's premium offering. Here you can find all the available HD channels - even the non-HD channels tend to look better due to more modern compression techniques. It doesn't suffer rain-fade. And, in almost every case, you can ditch your Freeview box & remote too, as most TVs bought in NZ that are less than 8 years old have Freeview|HD already inbuilt.
The satellite service is just that - a service. It's designed to give coverage to areas outside the UHF towers, but because of the satellite's configuration, there are no HD channels via satellite, and the picture quality is pretty average at best.
"Why did the Eastern Bay miss out on it's own Freeview|HD tower, when we had a TV tower before?" It was essentially down to money - cost per head of population. This article, though not about our region, might help explain the decision making.
Freeview|HD really is the only choice when you have a TV screen larger than 40 inches, especially when sharp, vibrant pictures and crystal-clear digital sound is the reason you bought it, right? Freeview|HD is delivered to much of NZ, and is only received via UHF aerial.
We will test almost anywhere in the Eastern Bay for a quality, High Definition signal. In fact, many of our customers, from Bryan's Bay to Otakiri (along with many other places) now enjoy the quality of reception, that up to now, only metro areas have been able to obtain. Seeing is believing. Call us now for more info!
Freeview|HD is our primary installation option. However, should the signal not be available at your place, we'll happily offer Freeview's satellite service for you instead.

Bryan Heath has been installing television antennas & satellite dish systems for over 30 years.
For him it started while in his mid teens, tirelessly trying to receive TV2 at his parents place in the Marlborough Sounds. He finally succeeded - something he was told would never happen due to their location. Later, he moved to Wellington where he cut his teeth in the industry and again brought television reception into homes where others previously considered impossible.
Today, he continues this tradition by achieving Freeview|HD aerial reception in equally demanding areas, right here in our patch of paradise. Bryan says “When someone says it can't be done, I kinda take that as a bit of a challenge”.
Don't be surprised if you see him with an antenna on your roof while he's seeing to your satellite dish problem - he's sure to be looking for an opportunity to help enhance your viewing experience even more!
We continually strive to bring high quality HD TV reception into more and more locations around the eastern Bay. We do this by putting in the hard yards, testing with various antenna combinations, because not all antennae are created equal. Some suit medium signal areas, like Coastlands, much of Whakatane and Ohiwa; some for low signal areas throughout the plains; and still others deal to deep fringe areas such as parts of Kawerau.
Sadly, there are still areas where we simply can't help with Freeview|HD, and in these cases we will continue to strive for the best outcome - for you.
Inspired by Alan Martin (LV Martin & Son, Wellington), who believed "people first, profit second", said "There's no secret of success if you make sure you're looking after the people who are buying from you". Our ethos remains the same... "If it's not right we'll put it right, it's the putting right that counts".
Bryan is fully trained and qualified in height safety.
It’s now a requirement for the majority of contracted roof work to be carried out with the use of either a fall-arrest or fall-restraint safety harness. The cost of non-compliance is high, not only monetarily but also the potential for serious harm or death. This is why we always carry a full harness kit to each job we attend - and we're not afraid to use it when it's needed!
Prior to forming IntegriTech, Bryan was employed by a couple of contract companies to work on the Chorus network. During this time he passed though an adult apprenticeship and now holds trade certificates in telecommunications.
Our goal is to provide an unequalled level of service, that you would want to recommend us to your family, friends and business colleagues. Much of our business is through referrals, which we are very grateful for, so thank you, Eastern Bay of Plenty!
We're hugely honoured to serve not only our residential and commercial customers, but also with local television retailers, with whom we work with closely as their preferred installation partner.
Please do not hesitate to call us on either 07 3125242 or 020 4994990, we are always happy to help. We're based in Whakatane for Eastern BOP people & we are proudly 100% NZ owned!
