3 Reasons to Consult Your Smart Home Technology Provider Before You Build
1. Smart Home Tech Includes More than TVs!
Modern AV systems have grown to include security, networking, automation of lighting, and remote control of all entertainment. Traditionally, planning the location to install these systems has been an afterthought in the build process, but with the growing size and reliance on these systems it is CRITICAL the integrator is able to discuss and plan with the builder before construction. Location, space, and readily available access are some of the most important keys to planning a well designed AV system.
2. Location of Hardware and Servers:
Integrators often are challenged with being creative in regards to placing system components while maintaining reliability, but ideally the entire system infrastructure would be tied together and placed in one central location. This is extremely beneficial to both the user and integrator in the long run, simplifying the location for the user and making sure there is convenient access for maintaining and servicing the system.
3. Power Usage & Climate Control:
Often overlooked is the necessity for proper thermal management and power when installing an AV system. When the integrator is able to coordinate with the builder and make these requirements known, making sure the system has convenient venting and proper power becomes much simpler.
