Differentiate Your Home Builds with a Smart Home Experience

Partnering with Avidia Helps Put Your Projects Ahead of the Competition

Homeowners today are more connected than ever. So naturally, they expect their homes to feature the latest in home technology to help maintain their connected lifestyle. Homebuilders in Winnetka and the Chicagoland area should capitalize on this rising expectation and differentiate their projects by offering smart home technology solutions as a standard feature in their builds.

But adding independent technology devices like smart thermostats and smart door locks won’t suffice if your goal is to stand out among the competition. Instead, your builds should offer a true smart home experience, which gives homeowners the ability to control and manage all their connected devices within one intuitive system—whether they’re home or away.

By partnering with our smart home integrators at Avidia on your builds, you can market your custom homes as both beautiful and smart. Keep reading to learn how Avidia can help put your projects ahead of the curve with smart home experiences that meet the desires of your unique clientele.

Wondering If a Professional Home Network Is Worth It?

DIY vs. Professional Home Network Installations: Here’s Our Take

Anyone can set up a basic home network—if they want basic internet coverage. The web offers virtually unlimited resources that can help walk you through the process of installing a home network. So, why would a homeowner choose to work with a professional home network installation company instead?

Without getting into the weeds, we’ll say this: DIY home networks provide only a small fraction of the capabilities that a professional home network provides. If your Glenview, IL home features data-heavy connected systems like audio-video, security, and home automation, then you need a solution that provides expansive coverage and unwavering performance results—among other requirements.

Keep reading to learn the difference between a DIY and professional network installation and why enlisting the help of an expert like Avidia is your best bet.

Enjoy the Ease of Use of Sonos with a Professional Installation

Get a Custom Sonos Experience Like No Other

If you’re familiar with Sonos – and many people are – you might be wondering why Sonos and professional installation are mentioned in the same breath. Sonos is indeed a popular consumer audio product, and generally, for simple applications doesn't require a professional integrator like Avidia to set up if you're comfortable with smartphone apps.

While Sonos is deceptively simple, you can do more complex things with the system. One of the things we love about the Sonos system is its ease of use, but it also has some custom capabilities that aren't as simple as plugging in a wireless speaker and connecting it to your network.

Recently, Sonos introduced two products that bring in other audio systems, like an existing stereo that you love, and extend them throughout your house. Those products are the Port and Amp. The Port lets you bring an existing audio system into the wireless streaming world of Sonos. The Amp adds even more capability. It adds a powerful amplifier to bring Sonos streaming to any set of speakers – bookshelves, towers, built-in, or even outdoor. Its various configuration options are one reason we offer Sonos professional installation services.

If you didn’t know that Sonos had all these custom capabilities for your Northbrook, IL home, we hope you’re intrigued. And there’s more. Please keep reading.
