How Do You Know Which Technology Is Best For Your Smart Home?

There is an overwhelming number of Smart Home solutions in the market to choose from.

And you'll find a guru, or dealer, or company with big opinions telling you just about everyone of those solutions is best for you.

So How Do You Know Which Smart Home Is Best For You?

The truth? They're all great systems.

Here's a key tip...

Discover how you want to use the tech in your home first.
Here's what I mean.  When you're in your kitchen, what do you want to be able to do?
- Do you want to listen to music, podcast, audio books?

- Do you want to watch ESPN?

- Would you ever want to block the sun coming through the windows while you're eating?

- Do you want a variety of lighting through the kitchen for ambiance: pendants, cabinet, under cabinet, toe kick lights, etc?

- Do you want wall clutter with lots of light switches, or just a single keypad?

- Would you like to be able to easily checkin and see kids at the pool, or rang the doorbell without leaving the room?
Notice, I didn't ask do you want 'Speakers' or 'Shades?'  I asked to know how you'll use your system.

Your answers to these questions completely change the direction of your Smart Home.

Here's what I mean.  Clients always ask me...

'If I were building my home today, what Smart Home would I use?'

My favorite Smart Home Platform is Savant.  It's just a personal preference.

As Smart Homes go, I really enjoy the user experience with Savant.

But if I were building my home today, I wouldn't use Savant and here's why...

When I go through my wish list, and how I want to enjoy my home, Savant won't work.

I LOVE Ketra Lighting paired with Lutron Shades and Voice Control.

At the moment, Savant doesn't fully support integration with, but Control4 does.

So for me to fully integrate the tech I like, I'd have to go with Control4.

Now maybe this is obvious to you, but here's the real problem...

Why The Design Approach Is Critical...

Most systems are designed with a 'System Focused Design' approach instead of a 'User Focused Design.'

Go back to our Kitchen example.

Let's say you tell me you want Audio in your kitchen.

Using a System Focus Design approach we'd say great let's set you up with a Control4 Audio Package.

With a User Focused Design approach we'd ask you specifically what you want to listen to?

- Apple Music

- Audio Books from Audible

- Podcast

- TV station like ESPN from another room

Say you told me you wanted to listen to Apple Music.

Well Apple Music isn't natively supported through Control4.

Now you can airplay, and that's ok, but if you wanted a more native solution, we'd probably look at Sonos for the Audio.

This is 'User Focused Design.'

So why should this matter to you?

The Three Causes Of Buyers Remorse With Smart Homes, and how to avoid it...

If you don't like your system, it will be for one of three reasons.

1. You don't use your system.  Either it's complicated, or it doesn't do what you thought it would (you can't play Apple Music, or listen to Audio Books).

2. You spent money on tech you don't want (After install, you understand what some tech actually does, and now realize you don't want it).

Now that you have it in your home, you realize it's not something you would ever use, and it's a daily reminder you wasted money.

3. You feel it was a poor investment.  Smart Homes on any scale are an investment.

The average homeowner spends 5-10% of the homes budget on technology, and Client's who go all in, regularly spend twice that amount.

If you're unhappy with your system, you'll hate the investment you made.
It all comes back to User Focused Design...
If you know how you will use the tech in your own home, you can design a system you'll love for years to come.

Here's The Challenge...

The industry wants you to buy its products.

Manufacturers put major financial pressure on Dealers to sell products.

A system like Control4 or Savant, is usually the main source of Revenue for a dealer.

And if they don't hit quotas, they'll lose the line.

I want to be clear, I'm not suggesting Dealers have bad intentions.

The Dealers I know want you to have a great system and experience.

But it's a reality that if you tell a dealer you want to 'Listen To Music' they're going to sell you the brand they carry.

Will these designs be poor?  No.

Is it possible for this to end well? Sure.

But more often than not, it's going to have elements of the 3 causes of buyers remorse.

How is this a better design than what you get with a local dealer...

For more than a decade we sold and installed Smart Home and Home Theater systems all over the country.

Today we don't install.  Our full time focus is Designing and Consulting on Smart Homes and Theaters.

So we don't have the financial pressure from the overlords to sell you specific lines.

It frees us up to help you Design Your system with a User Focused Design Approach.

If you tell us you want Control4, and midway through the design it's apparent Luxone is better, we'll help you move that way.

It's your home and your system.  We win if you're happy with the design, not if you buy a specific line.

So How Does The Design Service Work?

After you sign up for the Design Service, you send us a set of floor plans, and our Design Team goes to work design a custom system for you.

We break it into two phases.

Phase One:
We design a complete system with 'The Works' and send you the plans which include:

1. A Design Layout

2. A Control4, Savant and Amazon Alexa estimate

3. A Prewire Checklist, and Bulk Wire Estimate

4. Notes on standard electrical requirements for your Smart Home

What you don't want is to move into your home, learn about some tech and think
'Why didn't anyone tell me this was an option!'
That's the goal of phase one.  We send you a full set of plans to help make sure you've considered all the options.

Phase Two:
Is where we dial in the system for you.

We work to answer your questions about options, and make adjustments to the plans based on how you believe you will actually use your system.

The Design Layout helps you see where you should place tech like speakers and wifi access points.

It also helps you see what technology and experience you want to have in every room.

With your feedback and modifications, we make changes to the Design Layout

The Estimates used together with the Design Layout help you set a realistic budget, and make budget related adjustments to your design.  

It also helps you see how you might scale your system in phases over time.

The Prewire Checklist guides you if you plan to wire the home yourself, and helps you verify the person wiring your home has run the correct wires to the correct locations  so you can be as future proofed as possible.

Working through Phase Two we dial in the design specifically for you, and send you a final set of plans.

Future Support After you receiver your 2nd and final set of plans, the design service is complete.

But we know you'll have ongoing questions about the tech in your home throughout the build.

To help, we created an online Community called Tym U.

You'll have One Year Access to our online trainings, and a weekly live training where you can continue to ask questions and get help.

Once a week, a member of our Design Team designs a Smart Home or Theater live, and answers questions.

Throughout your project, you'll be able to ask questions and receive guidance on the tech for your home.

How To Get Started...

We need a PDF copy of your floor plans.  A general room layout is sufficient.

If you have electrical plans, that's a bonus, but what we need most is a general layout.

After you sign up and purchase the Design Service, you'll be given instruction on where to send your PDF.

A member of our Design Team will be in touch to verify you have access to Tym U, and confirm we've received your plans.

It will take 10-14 business days for your Design Team to complete Phase 1 of the design, and send you your first set of plans.

When you sign up, you'll receive the following:

1. A Design Layout - know the best locations for Speakers, Cameras, Wifi, etc, and verify the user experience in each room.

2. A Control4, Savant and Amazon Alexa Estimate - You'll be able to establish a realistic budget, compare systems and customize a system for you.

3. Prewire Checklist - Use this if you're planning to wire your own home, and to verify the person wiring your home is running all the correct wires to future proof your home.

4. Bulk Wire Estimate - If you're planning to run your own wire, this will give you a guesstimate of what to order for bulk wire and rough-in supplies.

5. Electrical Notes - A quick list of standard electrical plans for the tech in your Smart Home you can give to your electrician.

6. Access To Tym U Trainings - Over $3,500 in digital courses.  Learn to wire your own home, design a theater, and more.

7. Access To Tym's ALL NEW Community Exclusively For Design Clients - Watch weekly live trainings with one of Tym's Designers as they Design Smart Homes and Theaters. Ask questions, and visit with other Design Clients in the group to see what people around the country are doing in their own homes.

In the marketing world, I'm suppose to tell you there's a HUGE Value to this and give it an imaginary number, like 'over $10,000 in Value.'

It is a HUGE Value, Clients routinely pay us $10,000+ for consulting on their Smart Homes and Home Theaters, and the combined value of the Digital Courses, time and communication with our Design Team is well over $3,500.

But we wanted to make this available for as many Clients as we possibly can.

The goal is to help you Love your Smart Home, not spend a fortune on the Design.

When you sign up today, The Design Service is just $997

Answers To Common Questions...

1. What Type Of File Do We Need?

2. What If You're Remodeling And Don't Have Plans?  It's not ideal, but we do work with hand drawn plans.

3. How Long Does The Design Take?
The First Phase and Draft takes 10-14 Business Days.  The Second Phase depends on the complexity of the system, and the volume and technical scope of your questions and modification request.  Usually it's 48-72 hours for Phase Two, but it can take several weeks.

4. Can You Pay With PayPal?

5. Does Tym Do The Install?
No. We're no longer in the install game.  That's what allows our Design Service to be effective. You'll still want to find a local Dealer.

6. So After The Design I Find A Local Dealer?
Yes.  Think of it like hiring a Design Firm, or Architect for your Home.  Architect Designs the Home, but the builder builds it.  We help you design the system, the local Dealer helps you install it.

This is common in the Commercial side of the industry, and the direction it's going residentially.

7. What Systems Will You Design?
For the Design Service we limit it to Control4, Savant and Amazon Alexa. We can't provide designs for every outlier out there, OpenHab, Raspberry Pi, etc.  What we've found is these three estimates give you enough context to understand how to substitute parts for almost any system.

8. We Don't Work With Pre-Existing Equipment List, or Shopping List
All designs are done as 'New Systems.'  If you have existing equipment you plan to use like a Surround Receiver, or Speakers that's perfectly fine.  For the purposes of the Designs and Estimates, we'll build it as though you are purchasing all new equipment, and you can substitute what you already have.

Likewise if you have a wish list of products on Amazon, Monoprice, Alibaba, etc, we do not comb through those list and verify compatibility.  We design the systems as 'New Systems.'

9. Does This Include A Panelized Lighting Design?
No.  Panelized Lighting is a $497 Add-On.  It's a completely different design effort.

We're able to provide soft estimates for both Panelized and wireless Lighting, and make recommendations as part of the Design Service, but a 'Panelized Design' that you hand to your electricians requires separate man hours and design specialties not included in the Design Service.

10. Does This Include A 3D Virtual Theater Design?
No.  That's part of our Virtual Theater Design Service, and you can add it anytime.  If you have a theater, or media room, the Design Service does include a layout of equipment, and several theater packages for budget and reference, but the VR Renderings and room design are part of a separate service.
