Tips & Insights
Once you decide to move forward with a custom-designed and -installed home automation and entertainment system, job one is finding and hiring the right technology professional.
A smart home can only be as smart as the integrator you enlist to do the job, so you're looking for a home technology expert who can design and build a system that meets your expectations for form, function, and performance. Then it's a matter of learning the basic lingo so you understand what you're paying for and avoiding known pitfalls during the planning and execution phases of your project.
Communication is the other key to success. As long as information flows freely between you and the installer and among all involved parties — architects, builders, interior designers, etc. — costly mistakes can be avoided.
