Frequently Asked Questions:


The more outreach we do, the more we see that people are curious about the same things! Technology can be complicated. Our job is to make it as simple as possible.

What services do you provide?

To make the answer as concise as possible, here’s a list:

Whole Home Wifi, Audio and Video, Media Rooms, Cell Phone Signal Boosting, Security, Video Doorbells, Irrigation, Pool & Spa, Shade Motorization, Custom Automation, Lighting Control, Temperature Control, Energy Monitoring, Voice Control, Central Vac, Custom Remotes, Pre-Wiring, and Retrofits.

Do you install the technology or are you just a vendor?

Here at Smarter Homes, we are a turn-key service for all your technology needs. That means we consult with you about your needs for your home or business, draw up plans, order technology, install the wires – no matter what phase of construction the property is in, and program everything into a central brain for your convenient control. After our work is done, we make it look like we were never there and even provide warranty programs to help you out with your technology down the line. We are a one-stop-shop for the smart home lifestyle!

Is there a consultation fee to chat about our smart home questions?

No! There is never a consultation fee to speak with the representatives at Smarter Homes. In fact, we invite you to call us up with any questions you may have, day or night. We welcome your inquiries and connection. Tour our showroom, discuss plans and pricing, and even get a AV design drawn up on your blueprints, on us. We’re so confident that you will love the work we do and how we do it, we’ll do this for free, depending on your location.

Is there a job price minimum for your services?

We do not have a set minimum project size, but we do ask that you allow us to provide the equipment. We are not strictly an installation company and so we will not be able to accommodate customers who have already purchased their own technology. Typically, if a client is willing to purchase the product through us and we will be installing it, there is no issue!

Do you work on commercial and private property?

Yes we do! And we think our services are a perfect fit for any home or business.

*The calculated home technology budget range you will receive will includes parts, labor & accessories (Tax not included)
(a round number is OK)
Numerous structures on the property: Dock, Casita, Guest House, Barn, Gate etc. Check all that apply.
Prewire installation calculations assume you would like your home fully wired for ALL home automation technologies shown throughout the budget calculator, including 'future-ready' wiring. Prewire pricing can vary substantially based on what features you would like in your home. The wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring, not for electrical.
Prewire pricing will vary based on exactly what features you would like in your home. Read this article about the importance of wiring/cabling in today's "wireless" world. Your local Smarter Homes integrator is the best resource for exact prewire pricing. Wiring budget is for low-voltage wiring only, not electrical.
Keep in mind that our modern lifestyle and our home's automation technology systems are extremely reliant on a quality network and Wi-Fi system. Most homes are moving towards enterprise-grade hardware and away from the types of network products you could buy in an office supply store or a consumer computer store. We recommend that all homeowners consider the network and Wi-Fi system to be the most important system and installation within the home.
Higher-quality sound or higher-grade architectural finished speakers can range from $5,000.00 to $10,000.00 PER ROOM
Basic background music system pricing ranges from $1,500.00 to $5,000.00 per room including all equipment, labor, and programming.
Range includes video sources such as AppleTV, a Blu-ray player, satellite receiver, and remotely-locating them for best aesthetics. A basic soundbar is included for better audio.
This is called “video distribution” and reduces the amount of audio/video equipment located at each TV location/room.
A surround sound system creates an immersive sound experience, much like a dedicated home theater room, though in a dual-purpose room such as a Family Room, Master Bedroom, etc. If you would like more than one surround system location, click on the "Add Another Surround System" button below
Typically, homeowners want to see the following areas: front of house, front door, driveway / gate, sides of house, and pool. If you are more concerned about security, you may want to add cameras for the perimeter of your property. Good-quality cameras see about 75 feet of distance on average. The high range of the budget estimate includes higher resolution cameras, better night vision, and longer surveillance recording time.
The installation of a lighting control system reduces wall clutter, allows preset lighting scenes at the push of a button, increases security through programming automation, and adds convenience.
Motorized shades add beauty, convenience, address privacy concerns, and can be used to save energy. If desired, provide your best guess on how many windows/shades you want to motorize. The higher-end of the budget range includes higher-end fabrics, large windows, and dual-roller shades (both sheer and privacy shades on one window).
For example, a house music app, an app to operate your TV, an app for lighting automation, an app for locks, an app for cameras, an app to open close garage doors & gates, etc. Or do you want to control the entire house through a single unified app that controls all the automation systems within the home?
Make your home feel larger by balancing the light between indoor and outdoor areas.
