If you’re a home builder, interior designer or other professional in a related industry, you’ve undoubtedly seen the rise in popularity of home automation systems. Demand for these devices is climbing rapidly; if you aren’t putting smart systems in your homes, whether it’s new construction or a remodel, you’re missing out on a significant revenue source.
But designing and building a smart home requires time, money and expertise you may not have. There are also dozens of other challenges you face on any major construction or renovation project. The best way to create a smart home with minimal headaches is to bring in an integrator as a partner. Today’s blog will lay out all the advantages builders, designers and others can gain by working with an integrator on smart home automation projects in the Fort Lauderdale, FL, region.
Everyone knows the saying “time is money.” When it comes to building or remodeling a home, retrofits or last-minute changes also cost money. Ripping out drywall in a home that’s nearly complete to add new wiring or devices is something you want to avoid.
The best, simplest method to avoid issues like these is to prevent them from happening in the first place. When you bring in an integrator early in a project, they’ll work with you to achieve your customers’ vision while minimizing disruptive changes. You’ll see lower labor costs and save money on materials because you won’t need to do any last-minute renovations or touching up because of technology issues.
Time spent blending your clients’ design preferences with any smart technology they want is time better spent elsewhere. You have a multitude of problems to address when building a house; appeasing clients who are fretting about the technology in their home doesn’t need to be one of them.
Why not let an integrator take that challenge off your hands so you can focus on other aspects of your project? This way, they can focus on their area of expertise while you put your time and energy to more productive ends.
Everyone involved in creating a smart home, from the architects and designers to the contractors and buyers, wants to make a home that looks as good as possible. Partnering with an automation specialist early on makes reaching that goal much simpler.
Hiring an integrator as soon as possible gives them the opportunity to bridge the design and technology elements of your project. When those ideas are included early in the process, it’s easier to blend technology and design without compromising either piece. Everybody’s happier, and you get a smoother, cheaper project as a bonus.
