If you're planning on remodeling a house, most likely you have several goals in mind for your new abode. More than likely, you are updating kitchens and baths, as those are the areas that often get the most attention and return the most for your remodeling investment. If it's a full remodel, you may be gutting the interior or even adding on square footage, all of which is a significant project.
Regardless of the size of the project, any time you are moving walls, changing trim, upgrading electrical wiring, or replacing cabinets and plumbing, there is a perfect opportunity to install smart home automation.
Nothing updates a home more than installing current home automation capabilities. According to recent data from the National Association of Home Builders, 7-12% of home remodeling projects go to electronics. Much of this is going to smart home upgrades in lighting, climate control, entertainment, security, and here in Texas, smart shading and pool control as well.
If you are planning a renovation or remodel in the Park Cities, now is the perfect time to integrate a smart home automation system to modernize your property fully.

Our home automation partner Savant has made a name for itself in smart home automation by creating systems that are at once very powerful but also very intuitive to use. Of course, what one person might consider easy to use can be another person’s nightmare. Just ask a Microsoft Windows fan versus an Apple MacIntosh fan.
Speaking of Apple, while not associated with the company Savant has been known as Apple-centric. It was the first home automation company to launch an app on the iPhone; the user interface has a similar look and feel to Apple’s, and it uses powerful Apple Mac hardware in their Pro controllers.
People who like the ease, elegance, and intuitiveness of Apple products like the iPhone tend to like the similar polish of the Savant system. What makes something intuitive and easy to use? When it comes to software, and home automation, it’s the little details in design, flow, and navigation that count.
