Upgrade to a Smart Home in Six Steps

Blog-Upgrade-to-a-Smart-Home-in-Six-StepsLelch Audio Video Designs a Solution Customized Just for You There’s no denying the allure of a smart home automation system that offers intuitive, centralized control of your lights, entertainment, security and more. While the comprehensive nature of a smart home –from the control of simple appliances to complete home surveillance – makes it appealing, it also makes it a significant investment. This is why we recommend you work with a professional integrator to ensure you get the most out of the integrated technology in your Edina, Minnesota home. By following these six steps, Lelch Audio Video makes sure you get a customized, reliable system. SEE MORE: Finding the Right Home Automation Products 1. Learning Your Distinct Needs Through an Initial Consultation You’re the one interacting with your home on a daily basis. We may be the experts on the technology, but you’re the only expert on your household. Which is why we conduct a thorough discovery meeting with you to establish the scope of your project, the subsystems you want to include and how you want to control those systems. This way from the start we ensure you’re getting something uniquely yours, not a generic, one-size-fits-all solution. 2. Crafting a Comprehensive Design and Engineering Plan Once we know what you want, we create a design and engineering plan and keep extensive documentation throughout the project. Thorough planning up front pays off in the end with an efficient installation that anticipates needs and stays within budget. We take into account the rooms you want to incorporate and the features that will be part of each space be it security, entertainment or lighting. 3. Choosing the Right Products to Fit Your System As we prepare for installation, we advise you on which products will work best for your system. From complete lighting control by Lutron to Sonos wireless speakers, we find the perfect components for your smart home automation needs that fit within your overall budget. 4. Programming Your System for Customized Control Our Control 4 certified integrators get all your subsystems working together under one roof. You can have control from a designer touchpad, tablet or smartphone. We’ll also customize your general user interface to match your priorities. With extensive programming, it’ll be easy to add new components by simply making them another node in the system. 5. Installing All Your Wiring and Components With all the design, engineering and programming complete, it’s finally time for the installation. We begin with the pre-wiring, kept hidden behind walls. Once the wiring is in place, we add all the individual components from your smart thermostat to your high-end audio speakers. This step is vital since a thorough wiring infrastructure makes it easy to connect new hardware in the future. 6. Maintaining Your System With Ongoing Support We offer post-installation training to make sure you know how to use all the equipment in your new system. We strive to keep clients for life, providing ongoing maintenance and service for your smart home automation system. If a problem arises, with our extensive documentation it is easy to step in and solve the problem. Don’t worry about your home becoming outdated, we’ll keep in touch about any relevant upgrades and install them quickly when they’re available. If you really want to enjoy the perks of smart home automation, you need a system professionally installed to meet your needs. Contact Lelch Audio Video today to set up a consultation!
