Home Builders: What You Need to Know About Whole Home Automation
Factor in the Smart Technology That New Homeowners Desire
Modern homebuyers are willing to pay more for properties with existing whole home automation. If you’re a home builder, are you making the most of your projects by factoring smart technology into the designs?
The best time to consider home automation technology is before anything’s been constructed, in the planning stage. We’re more connected than ever, and it’s safe to say that home automation isn’t a fad. Homeowners are starting to see their technology as an intrinsic part of the house.
As a home automation installer servicing Gallatin, TN, and the surrounding areas, we’ll share what home builders need to know about getting started with smart tech.
What Can Be Automated in a Smart Home?
The possibilities are nearly endless. Your clients can access, automate, and control all of the following through one smart system:
- Whole-home audio with in-wall speakers
- TVs, projectors, and screens
- Smart lighting, indoors and outdoors
- Smart thermostats
- Surveillance cameras
- Smart locks
- Garage doors
- Motorized window shades
- Smart kitchen appliances, like coffee pots and refrigerators
- Sprinkler systems
Prewiring for Home Automation
While wireless technology has come a long way, an expansive luxury home with dozens or hundreds of connected devices, lights, and locks would be better served by a wired system. Before walls and ceilings are finished over, this is the time to work with your local integrator to install low-voltage wiring for speakers, security devices, and smart technology.
Are you planning for in-wall and in-ceiling speakers across the home? Will you need carefully placed security cameras around the exterior? Whatever the project includes, the property will be better served to install wires and cables ahead of time.
Automation That’s Ready to Use
Those in the new luxury home market want automation that’s ready to use on move-in day. With all technology synched to a Control4 system, the new homeowners can activate their technology on wall-mounted control panels or use voice commands with their preferred virtual assistant.
We’ll run extra conduits for future wiring as technology evolves, and the household adds more devices to the system. That way, if later on, they want to make any changes or install new lighting, security devices, speakers, it will be easy to accommodate.
