If you operate a design-build firm here in Arizona, you likely already have heard about the emergence of smart home technology.

Consumer Demand


The most recent Coldwell Banker Real Estate Smart Home Marketplace Survey, released in January 2018, revealed some notable statistics regarding homeowner demand for smart security technology.

The survey asked 3,000 potential homebuyers in 2018 what smart security technology they wanted pre-installed in their homes – technology that not only  can be accessed and controlled remotely but also can send mobile alerts to the homeowner in the event of any unusual activity.

Here are the results of that survey:

  • More than 70 percent of respondents said they would prefer to have smart thermostats, smart fire detectors, or smart carbon monoxide monitors pre-installed in their new home.
  • Another 60-69 percent of respondents said they would like smart locks, smart lighting systems or smart surveillance cameras installed before move-in.

What should these results mean to you, as a homebuilder?

Whether you’re building a brand-new development or are working on the construction of a home for a client, you should be aware of this increased consumer demand and be prepared to include these technologies in your projects.

Including smart home security technology in your projects doesn’t have to be a daunting task. In fact, it can be simple with the help of our team of installation professionals.


You Don’t Need to Work Alone

When you partner with our team of home technology professionals, you can prepare your construction projects for smart security long before the build even begins.

During the design phase of your efforts, our team can work with you so that you can account for how technology will affect your work. That way, you can adjust your blueprints to include the infrastructure for smart security, long before construction actually starts.

As your team constructs your client’s home, our installation experts can begin the infrastructure prewiring process – placing the wiring and cables necessary to support smart home security throughout the house, such as alarms, motion sensors, surveillance cameras, and more.

Once the drywall is installed, our team can then expertly connect security devices for your clients.

Best of all, we at Automated Environments offer far more than just custom security services. We can be your go-to partner for home technology installations, from automation to audio video distribution to home theaters and more.
