Though the concept of a ‘smart home’ has been around for over half a century, it’s only been in recent years that it’s become more accepted—and expected—as the norm of new construction homes and remodeling projects.
If you’ve been considering smart home technology additions or upgrades, it’s essential to look at your Great Falls, VA, home with an eagle-eye view, incorporating disparate systems into one simple-to-use smart home experience. A comprehensive, whole-home control system can make your daily lifestyle not only more convenient but luxurious, too, all with the simple tap of a button, voice command, or preset schedule.

With so many technology options to consider, your first step is researching. Every homeowner is different, so some may want to start Googling and taking deep dives into manufacturers’ websites, integrators’ blogs, and YouTube videos. Others may prefer a more guided approach with a smart home integrator like Bethesda Systems by your side, demonstrating the technology and giving you a hands-on educational walk-through on exciting home solutions like motorized shades, custom lighting control, and audio/video solutions.
While you’re researching, it’s important to think about your lifestyle. If you’re not a huge movie buff and don’t like entertaining guests, then a home theater installation may not be a great fit for you. On the other hand, if you’re the hostess with the mostest and love inviting friends and family over, then whole-home audio/video and outdoor entertainment upgrades would be smart home technology investments that make sense.
Once you’ve decided to move forward beyond the research phase, it’s time to call in the professionals. Look for a team that is HTA Certified to ensure your project is in good hands. The Home Technology Association is the national standard for home technology companies, and HTA certification lets homeowners know they can trust and rely on a company. You can rest easy knowing your technology partner performs rigorous employee background checks, provides world-class aftercare service, and has proven business performance and an exceptional reputation.
A premier integration team will handle all of the details of your smart home project, even working alongside builders and architects to craft the home of your dreams. All necessary wiring, networking, lighting loads, systems design, and installation needs are handled! Once installed, your system will work at the press of a button, adding convenience, comfort, and class to your daily lifestyle.
Maintaining long-term performance is paramount for a luxury smart home experience. Be sure to keep on top of all necessary scheduled maintenance and updates. With a post-installation membership plan, homeowners have a direct line to these updates, remotely keeping all devices updated with the latest software to ensure optimal performance and security.
