Step 1: Consult
We start with a consultation phone call that takes about one hour. During this time we gather all of your input. We learn about your goals and priorities, and then make recommendations on how to best executue them. After our first batch of documents are delivered we have another consultation to go over what we’ve produced and make revisions as necessary. This is repeated until the specification is complete.
Step 2: Document
After each consultation we’ll deliver two documents. The first is a feature specification, which will list each room and it’s required functionality. It also details the automation charactaristics of your smart home. We’ll cover all the subsystems (climate, light, surveillance, etc) that are relevant to your project. The second document is a PDF layout that will serve as a guideline for wire pulling and device location.
Step 3: Execute
You can send the finished spec sheets to local installers to obtain bids that are identical. You could also use the sheets for a complete DIY. We recommend getting the best of both worlds by contracting the job yourself in an assisted DIY fashion by continuing on with our project management service. The best part us, the fee you paid for the spec will be applied right to your project, making this initial service free of charge.
