Just like Electrical and Plumbing, Smart Home Integration Takes a Pro
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.
How Commercial Audio Video Systems Boost the Bottom Line
As a business owner, you are always looking for ways to serve customers better, make your operations more efficient, and grow the bottom line. But if you are running a service business, there aren’t always machines to automate what your people do. You may think about software to manage financial and accounting information and other areas but perhaps are not familiar with the ways other aspects of automation can help your company.
If you employ any audio and video technology in your company for entertainment or collaboration purposes, you may be missing out on some opportunities to make that technology add additional value to your business, both in increased efficiency and as ways to provide your clients and customers a better experience.
If you are running restaurant or bar, a medical or service office, or a professional workspace in Scottsdale, our commercial audio-video partner Control4 has cost-effective automation solutions to enable better customer experiences and save your staff and employees valuable time and energy.
Let’s look at a few examples.
Modernize Your House With These Smart Home Upgrades
As a homeowner or builder, if you are embarking on a remodel you likely have several objectives. Depending on the scope of the projects, you may be changing the layout and flow. Perhaps you are updating tired kitchens and bathroom, which add the most value and function. Maybe you are doing a major project where almost every aspect of the home is revamped, inside and out.
Regardless of the size of the project, any time you are moving walls, changing trim, upgrading electrical wiring, or replacing cabinets and plumbing, there is a perfect opportunity to install smart home technology.
Nothing updates a home more than installing current home automation capabilities. In a recent survey by Houzz, 45% of renovating homeowners are investing in smart home control features.
With that in mind, if you are planning a renovation or remodel in Paradise Valley, now is the time to consider these smart upgrades.
