The Ultimate Builder’s Guide to Smart Home Technology
The Vital Process to Follow When Building Your Next Project
For builders, spring can be one of the busiest times of the year. Unless you want to fall behind in one of the country’s most competitive markets, you need to find a way to differentiate your company. Emphasizing homebuyers' most significant demands is a surefire way to become the go-to builder for luxury clients throughout Palm Beach, Miami and Ft. Lauderdale.
Once upon a time, this just meant being in tune with the top design and architectural trends. Now there's a new factor to consider when it comes to your projects: technology. A recent market study found that 60 percent of homeowners are interested in having smart home services.
How can you make sure your projects meet these new technology demands? Expert technicians from Audio One can guide you through the process. Get started by scheduling a one-on-one meeting or by reading our go-to process for smart technology solutions.

Figure Out Which Smart Home Services You Need
Enter your client-meetings already informed of the top smart home trends and services. With the right knowledge, it’ll be easier to guide the conversation to figure out which options make the most sense for them. One way to educate yourself is to visit our showroom where you can experience a lot of this technology firsthand.
Find a Trusted Home Technology Partner
Don't worry — you don't have to become complete experts when it comes to these installations. A smart home company like Audio One can help you out with this part of your project. We'll work to craft custom technology solutions that incorporate all of your client's needs, so you don’t have to use separate companies for lighting, security, entertainment and more.
Develop a Standard Design for Your Project
Just like you have dedicated blueprints for your construction, the process is the same when it comes to designing your client’s smart home system. Our extensive documentation will show where each device will go, where to place outlets, and what types of cables to use in each room.
Lay Down All the Necessary Pre-Wiring
Pre-wiring is the first step in any home automation system. Smart home services require special low-voltage wiring that many electricians are not equipped to do. All of your structured wiring should be installed before your wallboards go up to avoid delays or repeated work.
Install and Program All Devices
Once construction is complete, our technicians will go back and install all necessary devices ranging from smart thermostats to LED displays. With wiring already in place and clear documentation available, it’s easy for our technicians to go in and add the final touches.
Ongoing Service and Support
As a builder, you shouldn’t have to deal with calls from homeowners who aren’t sure how to use their new technology. Once the installation is complete, we'll walk your clients through their smart home and let them know how everything works. After that, we’re always available 365 days of the year for service calls in case something goes wrong.
