The Smart Home Challenge: To DIY or Work With a Home Automation Contractor

Explore the Intricacies of a Smart Home

DIY home improvement projects are undoubtedly at an all-time high. Common projects range from landscaping to refinishing kitchen cabinets and bathroom renovations. And, as home automation enters the fold, homeowners are also turning to DIY smart solutions like smart speakers, lighting, video doorbells, thermostats, and more. 

As the number of smart devices grows, so do the apps that control them. However, issues can arise with the lack of communication between smart appliances and the need to pull up an app to control every device. 

As a home automation contractor serving Bellevue, WA, Wipliance connects the many moving parts, customizing a smart home for each client. This personalization involves programming it to respond to your desires and needs and ensuring all devices are compatible.

Let’s explore the difference a professional installation makes.

The Brains Behind a Smart Home

The home automation controller is the brains behind your smart home. At Wipliance, we partner with Control4, an industry leader in smart home automation. This centralized operating system communicates with your many smart devices and systems, syncing them and enabling them to work together. 

This level of communication creates a web of interconnectivity that allows us to customize a home to exacting standards. In fact, one of the many reasons we chose Control4 is because it’s an open platform. That means it can connect with tens of thousands of third-party consumer devices, enabling us to integrate the smart devices you love.

Once connected, you can access your smart home via a touchscreen, keypad, remote, mobile app, and your voice.

The Programmer

Programming the system is when the magic really happens. When you open the garage door at the end of the day, do you want your home set to the ideal temperature, your favorite song playing, with lighting that resembles the sunset? We can make it happen. Would you also like the spa heated and the landscape lights turned on? No problem. 

We’ll also program scenes for entertaining, dining, relaxing, date night, movie night with the kids, and many more. When you press a button, your smart home creates the ideal environment for every activity.

Concierge-Level Support

Smart homes can operate with thousands of connected devices, and you can manage them all with a simple tap or voice command, or your smart home can automatically do it for you. 

That means the shades may open in the morning as the temperature adjusts. At 4 p.m., your favorite podcast comes on. And, when it’s time for dinner, the shades lower, the doors lock, and the lights dim, settling into the color of candlelight.

Undoubtedly, there will be times when you want something changed. Our smart homes are scalable, ensuring they grow and adapt as your life changes. Whenever you need us, our team of experts will ensure your home works just how you want it to. As a Control4 Authorized Diamond Dealer, you can be confident in our ability to create the smart home of your dreams.
