Technology integration is the practice of designing spaces where technology is both accessible and future-ready. Technology integrators work with architects and their clients to define technology needs, and then handle the design and installation of customized home automation, security, entertainment and related sub-systems.

Today’s homeowners want features like distributed audio, custom home theaters or open concept entertainment areas, and automated control systems. From a more practical standpoint, they’re interested in security systems, energy efficiency, and secure remote access that not only protects what’s inside but also ensures their network and personal information are secure.

Industry experts predict that most residences will soon possess some form of home automation. It’s the hottest trend going. However, we know that designing a modern-era smart home is no easy task. With changing regulations, regional building standards, and clients’ diverse expectations you have more than enough on your plate.

Partnering with a technology integrator during the design phase will help you to meet your clients’ expectations and avoid time consuming, costly changes later in the process. Set yourself apart from the competition. design for the future with the help of a technology integrator.
