Why Home Automation Prewiring is Becoming a Must-Have
If you’re a home builder or an architect in the Bellevue, WA area, you should be paying attention to this statistic:
According to S&P Global Market Intelligence research, the United States had an estimated 20.1 million smart homes at the end of 2017.
By the end of 2021, that number is expected to grow to 35.6 million.
The smart home technology and home automation industries are growing at rapid rates, and the truth is that the standard wiring that is usually installed during construction simply isn’t sufficient for smart homes.
One common key to success in any smart home construction project: Accounting for and including home automation prewiring.
In this blog, I’ll share the significance of prewiring and explain how Beyond HiFi works with construction firms to ensure each home is set up for smart technology success!

Remote Monitoring Adds Convenience, Performance, and Security
I spoke with a new client recently who had moved to the Seattle, Washington area and wanted a Control4 system added to her property. She had a system in her previous house, loved it, and wanted the same great technology in her new place.
As we walked through the different options, the conversation soon turned to our ongoing remote monitoring service that we offer with our Control4 systems. The client was in love with the idea that her system could be kept up to date and free of any issues without on-site visits.
Her words? “Wow, I wish my old company had done that!”
It’s a no-brainer in my mind. Smart technology is rapidly advancing, which means smart home companies need to put effort into ensuring that technology is working at top performance all the time – without inconveniencing homeowners by scheduling visit after visit to their properties.
