Want to upgrade your thermostat, entertainment, lighting and more? Avoid the trials and tribulations of a DIY installation and reach out to a home technology professional that can take care of all your needs. So how do you go about finding the right one for your New York property? In the past, it may have been enough to use the phonebook left on your doorstep. These days, it’s all about a company’s online presence. You should be able to learn nearly everything you need to know from their website.

With that in mind, House Systems has recently revamped its website, so it’s easy for you to find what you need. This way you can make an informed decision whenever you’re looking to introduce new technology into your home. Below we give a brief overview of some of the things to look for and where to find those items on our new site.

One-Stop Shop

The first step in your search is to find out what services the company offers. All reputable home technology companies should have a list available that explains the solutions they offer and goes into detail on each one to see if it’s what you have in mind. This is why we made sure to create a comprehensive services page to make it easy for prospective clients to see if we’re the right fit.

It’s important that you think about the future during this step. Don’t just look up companies that offer the particular solution you have in mind, but others you may be interested in as well down the line. By having one company take care of all your technology needs you can make sure that all your systems play well together and it’s also easier to get necessary maintenance and repairs.

Past Projects & Reviews

The next few steps are about making sure that companies are actually prepared to install the services they promote. The easiest way to do this is to look at what they’ve done in the past. You can look through their websites to see if they offer case studies or galleries about past projects like we do on our portfolio page. These spotlights usually have pictures and explanations of the services included in the project.

Industry Experts

Beyond project spotlights, how can you tell that home technology companies are reputable? You can tell from how involved they are in the industry and the information they include on their website. This will help you differentiate a rudimentary one-man enterprise from the true professionals.

We offer ongoing CEU courses for architects and interior designers to let them know how they can take advantage of smart technology in their projects. Through our monthly blog series, we offer information on our services as well as news on products from our manufacturers. We also have informational videos to guide clients on how to use their Sonos and Savant systems.

One important aspect of a home technology professional is always being available for past and future clients if they have any questions. If you want to learn more about any of the services we provide, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone at (800) 357-5124 or through our online contact form.
