Written on 10th December 2014

As winter draws in and we look forward to snuggling up in front of the fire for Christmas, the building season also winds down for a short break. In spring it will be full steam ahead for building so now is the time to plan and according to the CSO homebuilders should be optimistic about the overall demand for new homes in 2015 and 2016.

As new housing starts to gear up, builders and buyers should be thinking about features that are in high-demand for this new generation of homes. With home automation topping most lists of the features that buyers are demanding, we thought you might be interested in a few hints and tips to ensure that your home has the right wiring and technology infrastructure to support your future smart home needs.

Whether you’re building a new home, or even remodelling your existing home with smart home capabilities in mind, proper wiring is an essential first phase to installing a home automation system, so that all of your devices can communicate with each other seamlessly. Home automation systems generally function best with structured wiring, which delivers the best network speed, configuration, ability to troubleshoot and consistent signal quality. All very important to ensure the performance and stability of any automation system.
