ANSWERS TO THE MOST COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT SMART HOME INSTALLATIONS

Over the past decade, we’ve written a lot of blogs about home automation systems, from hyper-focused ones on how to prepare for spring to high-level ones explaining key features. Our goal is to educate existing and future clients to help them make the best decisions when investing in smart home technology. 

With that in mind, we wanted to create a little anthology highlighting some of the things we’ve discussed. We’ve organized this blog to answer some of the common questions we get from clients in Lafayette, LA, and the surrounding area while linking to content if you want to do further research.

WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST BENEFITS OF A HOME AUTOMATION SYSTEM?

This is usually the first question we get as clients try to figure out if this is something they should consider. The main benefit is getting a one-app solution, letting you manage all your smart home devices from one place. Enjoy voice control or one-touch control of lighting, security systems, climate, and more. With intuitive control over your technology, it’s easier to get comfortable, entertain family and friends, and be more energy efficient. 

SHOULD YOU DIY YOUR SMART HOME?

As smart technology becomes more common, there’s a greater urge to try DIY installations. While you could get some limited functionalities, you’d give up that one-app experience and deal with a handful of apps. A strong smart home infrastructure lets you centralize control of all your technology and scale to other areas of the house or integrate new features. Plus, some companies offer service plans to proactively monitor your system and resolve issues quickly for greater peace of mind. 

HOW CAN YOU CUSTOMIZE YOUR HOME AUTOMATION SYSTEM?

Expert technicians create a smart home catered to your needs, advising you on the best smart home apps, devices, and features. One popular example of customization is smart scenes that save your favorite settings for entertaining or coming home. Activate them at the press of a button or schedule them to happen at given times. You’ll also get to choose how you manage your smart devices. Control them via voice assistants, dedicated touchpads, keypads, sensors, etc. 

HOW MUCH DOES HOME AUTOMATION COST? 

For those already sold on a smart home system, the natural next step is figuring out a budget. It’s hard to give any pricing before a consultation due to the custom nature of these projects. Still, you’d need to be mindful that there are labor and equipment costs. We recommend using the HTA calculator for a general benchmark based on the size of your home and the features you want to include. 

Work with a professional with a proven track record to get the most out of the technology in your home. Check they offer all the smart home services you want and that they have a proven track record via client testimonials.
