Package Delivery Security/A Secure Holiday Season

Keep your holiday deliveries safe with smart security to include video doorbells. With automated lights, appliances, and motorized blinds, the criminals don’t have a clue of whether or not someone is home.

How Will You Keep Your Deliveries Safe During The Holiday Season?

Research articulated by Forbes regarding the 2017 Holiday shopping season, online vs. in store shopping confirmed that, for the first time in history, online shopping surpassed in-store shopping. Online customers accounted for 49% of the U.S. holiday shopping statistic while in the store shopping only accounted for 42% of holiday shoppers. That’s with a 2% margin of error. As in-store shopping becomes displaced by online shopping, the mounds of packages left at door fronts will increase in number, leaving deliveries more vulnerable to theft.


video doorbell

Every smart home system that we create comes equipped with a high-end security system that enables you to keep an eye on the front door from anywhere. Included with your installation is a video doorbell that features a two-way intercom. With the video doorbell, you can visibly see and talk to a person at your front door without opening it. The person at your front door never has to know whether you are or you aren’t at home because you can answer your door remotely with a cell phone or tablet.

Your video doorbell also allows you to have conversations with delivery people so that you can request for them to leave your packages in a safer place. With your remote access, you can operate the garage door or a gate so that deliveries can be left indoor and secure. Installed exterior security cameras help ensure that your deliveries and home are safe around the clock.

*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.
