A One-Stop Shop 

There are already many moving parts to a new home build; why add unnecessary ones? You’ll have the best results if you have one company taking care of all your technology. Not only does that mean less coordination within the project, but a professional also integrates allyour smart devices to work together seamlessly. Check a company’s website to see what smart home solutions they offer to ensure they’d be able to cover everything you need.

Top-Tier Industry Partners

When it comes to luxury technology, most products are only available through certified dealers. When researching smart home companies, look for a partners or brands page on their website listing the manufacturers they work with. Not only do you want to make sure they have the ones you want, but a comprehensive list of luxury brands is a good sign they’re a reliable company. 

An Established Process 

Why settle for a cookie-cutter solution when you can work with a company that will design a tailormade smart home that fits your family’s needs? At Acadian, we ensure that your project always matches your vision by following a tried-and-true process.

It starts with a one-on-one consultation to figure out what you need. What technology features interest you most? What pain points are you trying to address? Then, we’ll take that information to our design and engineering teams to create detailed proposals and CAD designs outlining labor requirements, hardware models, wiring, schematics and rack elevations. 

From then it’s the turn of our expert project management team to take over. They’ll work with your other subcontractors to stay within the established budget and timeline. Any changes will be included in as-built documentation to ensure you’re always in the loop.

White-Glove Customer Service 

Finally, you want to look for a company that always puts the customer first. Check their online reviews to see what past clients say about their professionalism. Also, check for ongoing maintenance plans. All technology needs a little TLC down the line, which is why trusted installers will include monthly plans covering annual check-ups and remote monitoring to spot and resolve issues as soon as they occur.


Start your smart home journey by setting up a one-on-one consultation with our team. Don’t hesitate to reach out by calling, filling out our contact form or chatting with us below. We’d love to help!
