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.
