Why you need an accredited installer to bring your smart home to life

More and more homeowners have begun to get a taste of experiences like smart lights, thermostats, surveillance cameras, and voice control from singular DIY devices. But, as industry professionals, we know that experience is far from what’s possible today.

The smart home promise is for all devices to “just work,” and to do so together; but this is hardly the DIY experience. Few homeowners are equipped to install smart devices like door locks and thermostats, let alone troubleshoot, no matter how technologically savvy. According to an American study by iQuor about DIY devices, “nearly one in four consumers (22%) couldn’t resolve the issue or simply gave up, and returned the product for a refund.” The Modeliving team have encountered similar frustrations from customers sharing their failed DIY experiences.

Installation of smart devices by professional installers is critical to create an orchestrated smart home, whether it be a one-room, multi-room, or whole-home installation with hundreds of devices. A smart home is more than the sum of its parts; it requires a relationship between the homeowner specifying what they need and the installer programming the system to succeed.

Control4 is a world-leading home automation system that’s able to perform incredible feats! The system plays nicely with over 14,000 connected devices that accredited installers such as Modeliving, can orchestrate to create customised experiences that are helpful, personal, and secure. For example Modeliving can programme the Control4 automation system to integrate your TV remote, Sky remote, Apple TV remote, your Blu-Ray player remote and many more all into one app! So when you press ‘watch’ on your iPhone it turns on your smart TV, Sky box, and finds your favourite channel without you needing to find and press buttons on three or four remotes to make it happen!
