One of the most important goals of home automation is to provide convenience for the owner. Additionally, value can be realized by using automation to save energy and to provide security and peace of mind. Finally, we all appreciate the fun and excitement of experiencing the latest technology in our home or business.
While there are many home automation solutions available today, they vary widely in terms of affordability, reliability and most importantly with their ability to withstand the all important test of time. It is true that everything you install today will at some point in the future be considered obsolete. There are steps, however, that you can take to minimize this undesirable consequence. It all starts with the creation of a realistic vision for your project.
You should simply ask yourself what specifically it is that you want to accomplish with your system. Consider the following:
As you evaluate these concepts also consider the fun factor. Today's technology allows for all these features to be included rather easily in your home. Many homeowners can install the equipment themselves and some of the value goes well beyond convenience by providing a wow factor of experiencing leading edge technology in the home.
Do you have a fairly clear concept of what you would like to achieve with automation? Would you consider yourself a tech oriented DIYer (DO IT YOURSELFer) or are you willing to hire an electrician or other technician to assist? Would you prefer to install a system at significant savings over other companys' solutions? If you are answering, "Yes" to these questions then Orchestrated Home can help you in the form of cost effective home automation products that will bring pride of ownership and maintain their value well into the future.
Putting together an appropriate solution is next. If you already have existing equipment and you will be sticking with that protocol then you may skip the next section. Otherwise, the all important step of picking a protocol is next.
