Hiring a tradesman for home automation design or installation

Home automation is a common investment in modern living, but to ensure your system functions properly it is important to have a well qualified tradesman handle design and installation.

What do you need to know about home automation design or installation?

Remember that with home automation the price you pay for designing or installing will depend on the complexity of the system itself. You need to consider what exactly you want ‘automated’: your television? Curtains? Heating and lighting? You should also think about how many rooms you want it installed in, and how you want to control it. You can typically integrate systems with your smartphone or tablet device instead of buying one just for the system, which can cost over £1000. On the one hand there are very simple systems intended to be easy to install, whilst on the other there are companies specialising in ‘smart homes’ who can guide you from start to finish, including assessing your home to learn your requirements and giving you advice on which system to buy. Such companies may well have preferred brands, and if this is the case be sure to ask about them. You may also want to research the brands yourself.

An automated home system covering lighting, heating, curtains, security and so on can cost anything between £5,000 and £25,000, so ensure that you have a strict budget in place before seeking quotes. Collect several and compare them carefully to get the price. You should also make sure that any tradesmen you hire are adequately covered against accidental damage and liabilities in order to protect your investment. They should offer a guarantee in case their installation proves to be faulty or the equipment malfunctions in the near future. Depending on the complexity of the system it is also a good idea to check the qualifications of your tradesmen. Are they qualified as electricians and do they belong to any relevant national tradesmen’s organisations? Remember to also take the time to check customer reviews and references from their previous jobs to gauge how reliable they are.
