Don’t Let Technology Installation Slow Down Your Next Home Build
Work with a smart home company that streamlines project management and collaboration
According to IDC, the research firm anticipates a 26.9 percent year-over-year growth of the global smart home market in 2019. Sustained growth is expected to continue with a 16.9 percent increase by 2023. If you're a builder or architect serving Houston, TX, it's time to acknowledge that smart home technology are going to be an integral part of your projects. At Echo Workshop, we're a smart home company specializing in partnering with local trade professionals to reduce the time and overhead costs of adding smart technology throughout a new home build. To find out how we can help you, keep reading.
The primary benefit of working with a smart home integrator is the opportunity to pre-wire your projects before the drywall goes up. Homeowners expect technology that will work quickly, efficiently, and doesn’t clutter the space with visible components and cabling.
We can work with you to create detailed plans that take the architectural design into account, so the system works flawlessly the first time around. Homeowners benefit from increased property value, and you won’t have to re-work anything to accommodate their needs.
You can also benefit from understanding the complete system design. Wiring will hide behind drywall, but outlets, lifts, and architectural speakers require pre-planning and calibration to function correctly. By collaborating with a technology professional, you can design around the technology, and the devices integrate seamlessly with the room.
Additionally, many homeowners look for flush-mounted installations to avoid unsightly wall-acne. We work with specialized bracket manufacturers to provide the best possible look for every room of the new home construction. With your help, we can integrate the keypads and other controls to blend with the design. The homeowner will be happier, and you're ready to move on to your next project quickly.
Reduce Re-Work Time
When the homeowner brings in a technology professional late in the project, it can cause delays and an increase in re-work time. Sometimes they’re looking for something simple like lighting control or whole-home audio systems. More often than not, though, they want total smart home automation, home theaters, and integrated security.
That means breaking down drywall and finding places to put the devices. However, if you get ahead of the ball and anticipate the homeowner’s needs, you can streamline the project by working with a local technology pro.
At Echo Workshop, we have more than 20 years of experience installing smart home and AV technology in Houston, TX, and the surrounding areas. If you're looking for a reliable integration partner, click here or give us a call at (713) 589-9222 today.
