How Do You Choose the Right Home Automation Company for Your Project?

Is 2019 the year that you have decided you want to add smart technology to your home? You may already own some devices like a Nest or Ecobee thermostat or a Google Home speaker. You have a myriad of options when it comes to smart home automation, but you want a solution that works in unison and doesn’t demand much attention to just work.

For example, when the hot Arizona weather starts ramping up soon, you want motorized shades that will lower automatically when the sun is hitting that side of the house. You want not only that, but also your lights and climate control to adjust automatically to the changing sun, so your home stays comfortable and energy efficient. And when you arrive home in the evening, the right scene is set for you – with lights and temperature according to your preferences and perhaps even a welcoming music playlist.

Home automation can get complicated, especially when you want several systems to trigger each other and work in concert. Making everything work together – consistently – requires careful planning, rational technology choices, and technical expertise in programming and installation. Beyond some simple, non-critical automation, you want an experienced home automation company that can handle design, installation, and after-sale service.

You might be asking at this point – O.K., how do I choose one? Read on to learn five critical questions you should ask when selecting a home automation company to integrate smart technology in your Mesa home.

Why Work With a Home Automation Company?

Today’s homebuyers and homeowners are increasingly interested in integrating smart features in their next home. A recent study by CEPro, a magazine for professional integrators, showed that the knowledge and interest in smart home technology have increased dramatically in the past five years. Much of this is in no small part due to the popularity of smart consumer products like the Nest thermostat, Ring video doorbell, and the Amazon Echo speaker with Alexa.

If you are an architect, builder, or designer, you are likely familiar with smart home tech and understand that your clients are interested in it. But you are an expert in your field and are not expected to follow a rapidly changing space like smart home automation closely. You might lay out an electrical plan for a project, but an electrical contractor is typically the one who will work the details and install it.
