Let’s Bring Whole-Home Automation Solutions to Homeowners

If you’re in a profession like architecture, home building or interior design, you’ve undoubtedly noticed the rise in demand for home automation and smart technology systems in homes in Lexington, KY. Homeowners are captivated by the convenience, comfort, and improved home management smart tech solutions bring to their lifestyles.  

Design and build professionals can meet client expectations and increase the value of custom home projects by partnering with an integration firm to bring whole-home solutions for automation and smart technology into new builds, retrofits, and remodels.

Integrated Technology Design

At Rely Technology, we’ll never claim to be interior designers, but we have vast expertise in a niche corner of the design industry: home technology design. Designing tech systems for homes isn’t just about ensuring that sound systems, TVs, security devices, sensors, and shades are placed correctly for optimal performance (although that’s part of it). It’s also about seamlessly blending technologies into the home’s overall interior design, architecture, décor, and aesthetic appeal.

We can design whole-home audio systems meant to be heard but not seen by installing flush, in-wall, and in-ceiling speakers and hidden source components. If a homeowner wants multiple TVs without the clutter, we’ll hide the displays with mounts, lifts, mirrors and artwork that reveal home entertainment systems only when desired. Centralized lighting control reduces banks of switches (sometimes called “wall acne”) to elegant, wall-mounted keypads that control multiple lights with the press of a button.

When trade professionals work with our team from the beginning of a custom project, the result is a more beautiful home that doesn’t compromise either design or technology.

Prewiring Requirements

Prewiring lays the cabling infrastructure for whole-home solutions like home automation, networking, distributed audio/video, motorized shades, centralized lighting control, home security and surveillance, smart climate, and more. Ideally, prewiring is installed in the ceilings and walls during new construction to lay the groundwork for connecting technologies during the design and installation phase.

An integrator is a trained professional in custom wiring for home automation, state and local cabling codes, and the best placement for the cables and outlets required to operate different systems. 

Prewiring saves everyone on the project time, labor, and money. It’s costly and laborious to rip open walls and break down architectural features to add wiring at a later date. Once a prewire is complete, hidden wires won’t affect any part of the interior design process down the road.

Prewiring also future-proofs homes to allow homeowners to add additional technology solutions in the future without rewiring the entire house.

Whole-Home Connectivity

Today’s homeowners want more technology and connected devices than ever — but they also want fewer remotes, fewer apps, fewer switches and dimmers and buttons and toggles. At Rely Technology, we not only install all the technology solutions homeowners want, but we also integrate whole-home control into a centralized operating system.

Control4 home automation allows homeowners to access, manage, and control their home entertainment systems, security and surveillance, window shades, climate, lighting, outdoor audio video and more in a single platform. The Control4 operating system facilitates custom scene building, scheduling, one-touch control and remote home management of all connected technology systems.
