New Construction? Here’s When to Start Working With a Tech Integrator

Make Sure Your Next Project Runs as Smoothly as Possible

I get this question all the time; from clients, builders and other professionals around Lake Mary, FL.

“When should I start working with a smart home automation installer?”

The answer I give is simple. I just say “as soon as possible.”

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that a smart home is bigger than a technology system. It’s a place where families live out their lives.

The tech should work seamlessly, of course. But when I work with professional contractors from the beginning, that’s when the magic really happens.

Here, you’ll see some great reasons to start working with a custom integrator at the very beginning of your new home construction.

A Smart Home Is a Home First

Sometimes it feels like technology just won’t stop.

Every week there seems to be a hot new device hitting the shelves. Voice control, smart refrigerators, rollable TVs – with so much fun stuff it can be easy to lose sight of what’s important.

A smart home has to, first and foremost, be a home that its owners can love.

That’s one of the primary functions of a home builder; to make the property functional and comfortable.

But in many modern homes, smart technology is inseparable from any other aspect of day-to-day life.

For instance, a home isn’t really a home without lighting. Smart lighting comes in all shapes and sizes, but among the most common is the recessed fixture.

Because they’re installed within the ceiling, some construction is needed when the ceiling is already finished. However, if we’re there at the beginning, there’s no need for expensive re-work.

The end result is a much cheaper installation, a ceiling that was designed with technology in mind, and a much happier homeowner.

 

Expect the Unexpected

How many times has this happened to you: you’re just about done with a build and your client comes to you with a great idea.

They want a custom home theater in the unfinished basement.

That just threw off weeks of planning and made your project a little longer.

But if you had been working with a custom technology integrator from the beginning, your client would already know the cost, workload and inevitable reward of having this extra work done.

Time and money are saved and you’re able to complete the work and move on to your next project more efficiently.

 

As you can see, there are plenty of reasons to start working with a custom smart home automation installer at the beginning of your project.
