3 Ways a Smart Home Consultant Saves You Money

3 Ways a Smart Home Consultant Saves You Money

Even in luxury homes, budgets typically demand that you have to say no to some things. The knowledge of when to save and when to splurge is one of the most important things you can ask your smart home consultants. When it comes to home technology, understanding where you can save money without ruining the experience is complicated, since your devices are so interconnected. Read on for three ways you can protect your budget while maintaining the luxury experience in your Houston, TX home.

Wire For It

In a world full of wireless technologies wiring may seem like an unnecessary cost, but the truth is that a wired network typically leads to savings. Wireless technologies are often both more expensive, and less reliable, than their wired counterparts. Additional wireless devices will also require more bandwidth and could lead to necessary Wi-Fi network upgrades to keep up with the added number of devices.

 

Do Less, Not Worse

If you do need to pull the project back to stay within your budget, consider removing items, not downgrading the technology your integrator has designed for you. Choose a space or two and wire them for the technology you want, but hold off on purchasing the TV, speakers, shades, etc. When you are ready to tackle that next project, you will have all of the infrastructure ready to go, and the upgrades can be made with ease.

 

Ask for Advice

Your smart home consultant should be a trusted resource. If you don’t feel comfortable working with them to refine your project, you should consider choosing another vendor. If you feel that the proposal doesn’t match your budget, you should be honest with them. Ask your salesperson how they would recommend you proceed. They should be able to help you come up with a plan to get you the best possible system for your budget.
