Here Are the Right Questions To Ask
So 2019 is the year you have decided to take the plunge into home automation. Perhaps you’ve dabbled with smart devices like Amazon Echo speakers and a Nest thermostat. You know there’s a wealth of options when it comes to smart home devices and control, but you don’t want a cobbled together system that requires too much fussing.
You are thinking that when the hot weather comes to Plano, your motorized shades will block the sun automatically on the correct side of the house and your lights and thermostat adjust accordingly while you're at work, and it all happens seamlessly. You may want a particular scene set with lights, music, and temperature when you arrive home in the evening after work.
Putting this all together requires some planning. Sure, there are do-it-yourself approaches that can do these types of things for you, but if you go that route, you will be your own IT person. In other words, if something isn’t working right, you will be calling yourself to fix the problem.
The truth is, many home automation installations can get complex. Making everything work together well – and consistently – involves planning, choosing the right technology, and expertise in programming and installation. For anything other than the simplest setups, you want an experienced home automation company that works with the best products and has the expertise to handle design, installation, and after-sale service. Read on to learn about the most important questions to ask when choosing a home automation company to add smart technology to your Plano home.
