Home Automation where to start

Home Automation where to start

Home automation and where to start is one of the hardest decisions. We regularly  find ourselves replacing the ‘wrong’ devices/products and replacing these with a well designed and planned approach. We are called to change these because the customer has usually received poor information or just based their decision on the first and cheapest smart product they have seen. Unfortunately, this exercise costs the client money in wasted time and equipment.

As integrators and as a Fibaro reseller, the best advice is to work from the desired end result or solution, as what you would like your home to do. Consider how it should feel and function, visualise the the end result, so  for example you don’t make the mistake of purchasing just Smart WiFi globes, which run on one application and then later realise you wanted full control of lighting, heating and cooling, security and audio visual, which will now have to run on another four separate applications. When these could have been integrated in the first place.

With the flexibility of some scalable automation systems these days, you don’t need to do it all in one hit but rather build your planned integrated system step-by-step as your budget allows.
