You’re probably writing pros and cons lists over whether you should manage creating your smart home on your own or use a professional. You can definitely save money doing the project on your own. And if you’re very tech savvy, that might be the way to go. However, don’t let the idea of spending a little money on a professional discourage you. Sometimes spending a little more now, means comfort, convenience, and saving money later.
Should you get a home auto professional? If you answer yes to any of the following reasons, you might want to strongly consider it.
Reason 1 – You Want Tech Pros: You always find yourself wishing that following directions was as easy as they made it seem. Any homeowner knows the painful fire of home improvement projects gone wrong. While you can save money in the short-term by DIYing your home auto, it might be a good idea to invest in the long-run when it comes to your home. Home automation experts know the technology inside and out. They can tell you whether or not you want that Samsung hub or the Logitech one (or any of the many other brands of hubs), and which one works best for your home setup. Professionals can assist you in making sure that your system can support the most popular ways of connection: Bluetooth LE, Lutron ClearConnect, Wi-Fi, Z-Wave, and ZigBee. They also know how to troubleshoot quickly. And they can get around issues you haven’t even thought about yet…issues like weak wireless signals and if your home might be more or less fit for certain styles of home automation. What’s more, they can help you customize your home automation exactly as you want and need it.
Reason 2 – You Want Someone Who’s Ahead Of The Curve: Obviously you want pros who know the tech inside and out. But you also want pros who know what’s coming and are ahead of the curve. We all know the feeling of finally investing in something only to have the new and improved version come out the next month. Home auto professionals will make sure that you have the most relevant equipment and will be able to guide you away from dated tech or tech that is being phased out before you invest all that money.
Reason 3 – Help And Quick-Fixes: Sometimes technology fails us. That’s nothing new. And yes, YouTube can be a great place to figure out how to troubleshoot problems. However, a home automation professional can remotely troubleshoot issues with the system or come out to work on the problem while you focus on the more important things. And they can do it a lot quicker than you, saving you time and energy. So, if you want someone else to be able to take care of the problems that arise so you can focus on your hobbies and home-life, home automation professionals are a right choice for you.
