Who is the best integration company in Houston?

sophie frame

 

We have quite a number of fans to iconic.systems.  I have had clients moving from other states comment about dealing with us was so easy compared to the pain points they had with past experiences.  We have had other clients ask if we would go to another state to help them.  Having a local company is important and having someone who can provide the type of system and experience is key to satisfaction.  But technology is constantly changing, products are updated or obsoleted, and services come and go.  Nest thermostats said they would never integrate with other systems and that was backed by their CEO at the time stating this in a keynote speech at CEDIA Expo (the largest single industry event).  The following year they said they would integrate with any other systems with an open API.  Then the year after that, they started removing integrations again and breaking code that made them communicate to outside systems.  So if massive companies like Nest, owned by Google, change their direction so many times in such a short period; then imagine how difficult it is for smaller manufacturers and especially integrators to keep up with the ever changing landscape of technology.  But I digress.  We take over quite a number of projects that were installed by others, especially when it comes to Savant based systems.  So we see the work that many others do, even if we are not really competing with them on a daily basis.  We know what we do well and, of course, we think we do those things the best.  But we are not the right fit for everyone and truth be told, not every potential client is the right fit for us.  We specialize in clients who want convenience features that come with having smart home features, those who want designer features that can sometimes be difficult to master to make the home look great, and homeowners who want someone to make it easy to operate, have installed, and maintained.  We also sell systems and not a list of products that the average person (or insider) would struggle to figure out.  This all means that not everyone will find our method or even our company appealing.  So we get asked who else would you use if we weren't invited to do the home system.

How much does a home automation system cost?


What does it cost to get an "automation system" in your home?  Well, that depends.  What do you consider a smart home?  What do I consider a control system for an automated home?

There are lots of terms for smart home and automated homes.  So one of the most important aspects of understanding pricing would be to understand features, because an automation system can range from $1600 to into the hundreds of thousands.  I always say it is like buying a car.  If you know what you are looking for, then you can better decide if the price is right for you.  If you just ask "how much does a car cost?", well you will get a different answer from a Honda dealer and a Mercedes dealer.  You would get a different answer from a guy building his own hotrod in his garage.  And you would get a different answer altogether from someone who gets chauffeured in a limo.  Let's look at what would make a smart home or automation system range so drastically in price.
