Getting Started: Control4 Smart Systems for Home Builders
We Answer Your Questions About Designing and Building with Home Automation
Smart homes aren’t just the future—they’re here. If you’re a home builder, are you prepared to provide an automated home for your clients?
The way we build houses today is vastly different from even five years ago. Now we must think carefully about pre-wiring, not just for electricity, but for the internet and audio. Wiring is not only about being up to code. It’s about how the homeowners will actually live and use technology for convenience and entertainment.
Smart systems like Control4 let luxury homeowners access their homes from anywhere in the world, right from the Control4 app. Whether you build single-family residences, luxury apartments, or even commercial buildings, a Control4 system will put your Murfreesboro, TN-area business ahead of the competition.
Read on to see why partnering with a Control4 installer will improve your building projects.
Control4 is one of the top providers of automation and networking worldwide. It’s used in over 400,000 homes in over 100 countries, with nearly 6,000 Control4 dealers who install hardware and configure software. Control4 smart systems are compatible with approximately 14,000 third-party devices, so your clients can mix and match the brands they love. Whether it’s Bowers & Wilkins speakers, DMP security cameras, or Lutron shades, you likely won’t run into incompatible technology.
Why Should a Home Builder Care About Smart Systems?
Smart homes are the future, and forward-thinking homebuyers already place more value on automated homes. You’ll create more valuable projects and stay ahead of the competition. With an efficient and attractive smart system, you’ll see happier clients that are more willing to ask you for more jobs and refer your business to friends and family.
Why Is Home Automation Important for New Home Builds?
In existing homes, it can be tricky to install whole-home smart systems without cutting into the walls. Homeowners might need to settle for visible wires or use wireless systems, which are less reliable. But new construction is an excellent opportunity to plan for proper wiring before wallboard is installed.
How Do I Approach Clients About Control4?
Some home builders, architects, and interior designers include Control4 products in their project quotes. They’ll incorporate home automation technology and the Control4 HC-250 Controller, the ‘brains’ of a smart home. Of course, the client can opt in or out, but they may find they want smart light switches, an energy management system, or security devices. You’ll then work with a Control4 installer (like Symspire) to design a smart system that suits the homebuyer.
How Do Smart Systems Improve Design?
Smart systems eliminate unnecessary controls, like light switches on the wall. A room may have originally had four or five light switches, but a sleek Control4 keypad can consolidate them all into one. Smart lighting enhances the appearance of every room, customizable right from your client’s smartphone. Ready to see the difference a Control4 system can make on your new home builds?
