3 Things to Look for in a Smart Home Company

Smart home technology is high on the list for homeowners building or remodeling a home or even redoing a living area or an outdoor patio and pool. Control of lights, audio-video systems, shading, and more bring not just convenience but energy efficiency and security benefits as well.  

While some simple smart home features can be addressed with DIY consumer solutions, a truly integrated smart home installation is best left to professionals. They can determine not just what system is best for you now and into the future, but they are also experts in essential infrastructure like cabling, wiring, and networking that will enable your smart home to work fluidly and reliably. 

How do you go about choosing a smart home company for your project in Destin, FL? Keep reading for three critical things to look for in making your decision.

Just as you wouldn't want an electrician just out of training to do your entire house, you want a smart home company with experience. Not just a company that might do it as a sideline, but one with significant experience with multiple vendors and a history of successful installations. On top of that, you want a company with a local presence that is there to support you with any issues that may come up.

GHT Group is a company with over 30 years in smart home technology. With a local presence in the Northwest Florida area, we have the resources to support significant projects in large properties, with local technicians and the resources of a company that works with many technology vendors and has successful projects in several states. 


You should be somewhat wary of companies tied to only one technology vendor. They may not offer the breadth and depth of solutions that fit your needs. You should quiz a smart home company on the brands they offer, how they differ, how scalable they are, and how their technology keeps up with the latest features and trends. 

GHT Group works with three leading smart home automation companies, CrestronControl4, and Lutron. Lutron focuses primarily on smart lighting and powered window shading, while Crestron and Control4 are full home automation platforms. All of them have their own distinct advantages and unique technologies and features. We can help specify the solutions that best fit your needs now and in the future. Moreover, GHT Group is an authorized integrator for many other top brands in audio, video, and smart technology that fit into a comprehensive solution. 


You want a smart home company that will be there when you need them. While modern smart home technology is very reliable, inevitable issues arise with any solution. You want a company with local teams and support plans to address any needs quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively. Our Santa Rosa, FL based team has built a reputation and a loyal client base over the years by providing a high level of dependable service, giving clients peace of mind in entrusting their smart home’s operation to us.
