Your Wisconsin Smart Home Partner for New Construction
Chalk it up to homeowners desiring a more connected home, higher efficiency, safety and security, or technical sophistication. Smart home technology is becoming more widely integrated into residential spaces. The great news for builders is that including smart home technology in your projects deepens your customer offerings and raises overall margin.
In all sectors of the building industry, staying current and providing relevant solutions is of utmost importance. As new ideas come onto the scene, we need to be educated and knowledgeable about how they can be integrated into what we do, but there is a big difference between knowing what new solutions are available and understanding them fully so as to integrate them correctly.
A Valuable Asset to Your Business
Home automation is our specialty at Fearing’s Audio Video Security, and as a technology partner, we have been a valuable asset for many builders in the home building process.
“I can get a hell of a good look at a T-Bone steak by sticking my head up a bull’s a**, but I’d rather take the butcher’s word for it.” – Big Tom Callahan
Bringing home automation experts into the design phase can often elevate a customer’s experience simply because we’re the only other trade out there that will have consistent and ongoing contact with the homeowner, even beyond the completion of their home.
Because of this ongoing relationship, we do not simply sell the homeowner equipment, but rather deliver a lifestyle and level of sophistication through ideal integrated technology solutions and detailed service.
Do You Have a Tech “Smart Home” Partner?
The nationwide average for shared technology in homes is 5% to 8% of the total value of the home. In a $400,000 house, chances are there is nearly $20,000 of low-voltage wiring, networking equipment, TVs and components, audio systems, shared computers and tablets, lighting controllers, thermostats, etc. Homeowners will generally bring some of that equipment with them as they move into their new home, but having a reliable company help them through designing and budgeting those systems, as well as installing the infrastructure to support those systems, will achieve a better system with longer-term usability.
Do you have a tech partner? Fearing’s works best as a trusted tech partner in new construction, being part of the conversations with the homeowner early on in the process. If you don’t have a tech partner, get one! Be sure to find out what differentiates them from your electrician or from the homeowner trying to DIY these systems by themselves. Technology is an easy offering if you’re willing to build and leverage a solid relationship with an integrator. Fearing’s is here to be that partner. Let’s talk!
