Three Key Benefits of Working with a Home Automation Company

Smart home automation is a trend that is here to stay, and it's accelerating. According to Statista, there will be 77 million smart homes in the U.S. by 2025! Other surveys point out how new homebuyers are prioritizing smart home features – and are willing to pay for them – as much as upgraded kitchens and bathrooms. 

As design and build professionals, you see these trends. Therefore, it pays to have a relationship with a home automation company so you can integrate smart technology into your projects efficiently and seamlessly. Let's take a closer look at how bringing in a smart home company early in your process results in better outcomes for your Kennesaw, GA projects.

Planning for Scope

While many home automation features run over wireless technology, not all of them do. Every smart home needs a strong network backbone, and wiring in the right locations is key to that. Many other functions require a central panel with the "brains" of the system and wiring to control points. One of the most important reasons for working early with a smart home automation company is to establish the scope of smart technology in the home. We work with you to educate the client on all the possibilities. They may not be aware of new products and options that may become a must-have feature in the home. Our project managers work with you and your client to determine all their needs and desires to design the underlying infrastructure necessary to support it.

Understanding the Options

The client might be quite specific on their desire for indoor lighting control but may not know all the options. For example, do they know about color-changing tunable lighting and its benefits? Have they thought about outdoor audio and video? If any of those features are something they want to do, it pays to enable them from the start to avoid costly retrofits. For example, if the electrical and cabling requirements for outdoor AV are designed from the start, even if those features are installed later, it will be a far easier and less expensive project to do. 

Having the Right Partner

As design and build professionals, you have established relationships with trade professionals. It might be tempting to work with a security company for home automation features, but you should ensure that they have the right expertise in that area. Some integrators specialize mostly in one area and offer the rest as a sideline. For home automation, you want to ensure that the company has the right experience and expertise in all facets of home automation features. Specifying the right systems for the job, understanding the nuances of configuration and programming, and integrating the whole system as a smart home solution that works together is critical to having a happy client and a well-sorted smart home
