From Step One to Done: How We Build Your Dream Smart Home
You can count on Simply Automated to design, install, integrate and customize reliable smart home solutions that meet your every desire
This year, the team at Simply Automated was honored and humbled to be featured in the August 2020 edition of CE Pro, a leading industry magazine in the custom electronics industry. We firmly believe the recognition stems from our dedication to designing and executing the smart home installation of your dreams using our standardized and transparent process.
We aim to deliver exactly what you want on-time and on-budget for every project we undertake. More than anything, our team is passionate about the work we do and the lifelong client relationships we build.
If you’re interested in smart home solutions for your Pittsburgh, PA, home, keep reading to gain some insight into what the process looks like. Then call us to get started!
First, We Get to Know You
Every smart home is unique, so we begin every installation with a one-on-one session with you at home or in our Control4 certified showroom. In our showroom, you’ll have the chance to see and interact with smart technology systems, which may help you decide what you want in your own home.
Be prepared to get DEEP with our team, and don’t hold anything back about what you want from your smart home. We’ll talk a lot about your lifestyle and the technologies that would make your day-to-day life more accessible, more convenient, safer or more comfortable (and hopefully all four). If you’re new to smart technology and want to start with one system (like smart lighting or whole-home audio), that’s perfectly fine. With a scalable home automation platform like Control4, you can add on connected devices, rooms and subsystems at your own pace.
Now is also the time to discuss your space availability and budget concerns. We’ll work with you to build the dream home you want at the budget you need. Let’s say you’re interested in a home theater but don’t have space right now or the budget to remodel. That’s not a problem for us — we can talk about transforming your living room into a multipurpose media room with hidden technology, dimmable lights and a stellar AV system that you can activate with just the touch of a button.
Then, We Get to Work
After we’ve designed your smart home and gotten your approval, you’ll be assigned a project manager to oversee every aspect of the project. There’s a lot that goes into a smart home installation, including:
- Wiring and cabling for hardwired systems
- Network configuration
- Hardware setup (speakers, TVs, light fixtures, etc.)
- Control interface setup (on-wall keypads and touchscreens)
- Software installation and programming
- Integrating multiple smart systems into your Control4 home automation system
We’ll work with you to communicate often, stay on schedule and install everything to your design specifications during the entire process.
And Finally, We Stick Around
After all this work we’ve done together, did you think we would abandon you? Of course not. After your installation is complete, we’ll be on-hand to show you how to use your Control4 system and guide you through selecting personalized settings and creating automated scenes for your devices.
We highly recommend investing in one of our Smart Care plans for continued support and maintenance. Your smart home will need regular check-ups and updates, and who better to provide support than the team already familiar with your system.
