Why Design-Build Professionals Are Teaming Up with Smart Home Integrators

Smart Home Design Is Becoming a New Home Standard

The smart home market is growing exponentially, with over 77 million smart homes expected in the U.S. by 2025, according to Statista Market Forecast. As the market grows, more homeowners are looking for the luxuries home automation provides and are willing to pay more for this enhanced lifestyle.

Millennials represent almost 22% of the population, coming in at more than 72 million people. According to the National Association of Realtors, this generation represents 43% of homebuyers, the highest share of any generation. And this group is looking for smart homes. A survey by Wakefield Research showed that 86% of millennials would pay more for a home if it had smart home technology. 

Contractors, architects, and interior designers are paying attention to this trend and developing long-term relationships with home automation integrators.

Make Your Devices Last Longer with Home Power Protection

Why Surge Protection Is Essential for Home Technology Systems

If you own a home theater, smart home system, or other home electronics, you’d hope the equipment will last for quite a long time. So we understand how frustrating and perplexing it can be when technology starts to give out after only a few years.

It makes many people wonder: do manufacturers purposefully build hardware to expire so soon? While some modern electronics aren’t well-made, you should be able to trust high-end brands to last.

What most homeowners don’t realize is that it’s not the equipment causing malfunctions—it’s the power supply. If your home’s electricity is creating surges and noise, it could damage your devices and shorten their lifespan.

Heavy digital loads at home lead to “dirty power.” Luckily, with home power protection, you can keep your La Cañada Flintridge, CA home’s technology running smoothly and safely. Here’s what you’ll need.
