Can Home Automation Work if Your Home was not Wired for It?

So many choices…

One look around some of today’s technologically savvy homes may leave you inspired, but also make you question the feasibility of having such a system yourself. When a new home is built with the intent of being a ‘smart home’, many of the prerequisite elements are addressed during construction. Wiring infrastructure, switching hardware and other requirements are installed prior to completion of the structure, facilitating the deployment of countless automation options. Lighting, HVAC, security, audio, video and data control allow the homeowner to customize their lifestyle as they see fit.


What do I need?

Although retrofitting an existing home to support automation may seem like a daunting task, that may not always be necessary. Some home automation systems rely on a relatively basic interconnectivity between components, while others may operate in a wireless capacity entirely. In such cases, command and control hardware communicates using Wi-Fi or other proprietary protocols, making the automation of your home simpler than imagined. If you have Internet access and proper equipment to perform the tasks you desire, the first door to home automation is now open. There is room for growth as the need arises, such as adding wireless shade control or networked audio as just two examples.
