Stand out among the competition by wiring for smart home technology.

Modern home builders who build homes wired for modern technologies sell more homes faster than their competition.

The NY Times reports, wiring for smart home technology drastically increases the marketability of a property.

Smart thermostats & integrated lighting controls are the two most popular components to reducing a home’s carbon footprint. The Sheldon Group reports, 80% of home buyers surveyed said the home’s energy efficiency effected their buying decision.

Access Control

An Access Control system is a building’s first and most important security feature. HD cameras, two- way communication, smart- phone alerts, limited access fobs or numeric codes make admit- ting guests and receiving packages easy while giving residents total peace of mind. Added convenience that drastically improves a tenant’s lifestyle.

Sleek and stylish components with user-friendly interfaces drastically increase the curb appeal of a multi-family dwelling. Whether developing condos or rental units, think of the access control system as the building’s calling card.
