We mean Business

People do business with companies every day without meeting the owners. Sometimes you may never meet the owner of a company that you buy from. The same can’t be said about Smarter Homes of Austin.

People do business with companies everyday without meeting the owners.

Sometimes you may never meet the owner of a company that you buy from. The same can’t be said about Smarter Homes of Austin. Before I go into detail let me expand on what I think seeing an owner at a business does for me, and what it should do for you.

First of all, one of the most important reasons that an owner has a business is to make money and provide employment for workers, right? So it’s easy to conceive that owners that are on site are really into their customers needs and making sure that they are fully satisfied. A customer pretty much sees that when an owner is on site things happen and they get the sense that their particular job is being well taken care of by the top knowledge base of the company. That’s a sense of comfort when you spending money on high end home improvements.

Next, owners that show up on site and give a hand to workers are highly respected by their staff, building a camaraderie between employer and employee. Owners have the most knowledge about the goods and services that they produce by their company, therefore company employees are more apt ask for help or advices if needed. The owner can also see if things are being carried out the way they’ve designed them to operate and make necessary corrections or give instructions on a better way to perform tasks or present products.

Over the years, there are a few things that I have learned about company owners. The thing that keeps coming to mind is that owners aren’t in the businesses to solely make a profit. Their are other factors of why someone goes into business. To many owners, things like adding jobs to the workforce, interacting with people, and having something to do are just as important. However, not every owner thinks like that. Smarter Homes of Austin is one of the fortunate companies that has an owner that sees everything about what their company does as important. Enter Peter Sandford.

*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.
