About SEAL Solutions
SEAL Solutions’ mission is to bring state-of-the-art technology into peoples’ homes so they can have more control over their environment, making their lives easier and giving them more time and energy to enjoy life.
The idea for SEAL Solutions began over 15 years ago when founder Chris Wyllie graduated from the U.S. Navy’s Advanced Electronics School. He served as a member of Special Boat Unit Twelve during his service in the Persian Gulf, and then became a member of the U.S. Navy SEALs, the most elite fighting group in the world. He continued his work with electronics as a part of SEAL Team Two. After he left the military he pursued his goal of creating a business where he could use his extensive knowledge to assist others, and SEAL Solutions was born.
In 2009, SEAL Solutions received CEDIA’s prestigious Electronic Systems Contractor (ESC) award. In 2007, SEAL received Sound & Vision magazine’s Installer of the Year award, and the company has completed installations for numerous celebrities including Liam Neeson, Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts, Kiefer Sutherland, Julianna Margulies, Maxwell and others.
