Communities and Town Homes
Over years of providing low voltage and automation systems to developers and homeowners, we know exactly where the optimal system is to provide maximum value and luxurious impression to home buyers while accounting for builder's budget.
The biggest challenge for builders in large scale development is that they don't have the budget to include a reasonable automation system that homeowner can enjoy for many years. When home owners approach us for upgrades after construction, we are limited with we can do; simply because there was not enough technical knowledge behind wiring design of the homes. In order to be able to provide homeowners with what they need, we started working with builders within their existing budget but on a win-win model that benefits both builder and homebuyer.
