Explore the Value in Working With a Smart Home Installation Professional


At AVWORX, we have partnered with countless homeowners throughout the state of Utah to bring smart home technology into their lifestyles.

From single-room solutions to whole-house projects, we take great pride in revolutionizing lifestyles through smart home installations – delivering homeowners a house equipped with technology that works on its own to elevate convenience, efficiency and overall day-to-day activities at home.

Over the years, we have observed that demand for smart home services has increased throughout the greater Layton area. And we believe there is a growing opportunity for home builders in our area.

In this blog post, we explore three facts about the smart home industry that members of the design-build community in our area should know.

1) There is Rising Consumer Demand for Smart Home Technology.

Let’s start with this simple fact: consumer demand for smart home technology is increasing.

From intelligent thermostats and security cameras to whole-house automation solutions, the connected home industry is growing rapidly.

According to the 2018 Coldwell Banker Real Estate Smart Home Marketplace Survey, 32 percent of Americans currently own smart home devices, a 33 percent year-over-year increase from 2017’s number of 24 percent.

And that percentage is only expected to rise. According to the Global Smart Home Market survey released in 2017, data suggests the global industry will grow from $24.1 billion worldwide in 2016 to a stunning $53.5 billion worldwide in 2022.

What do these numbers mean for you as a home builder here in Utah? Increasing consumer demand for these technologies presents an opportunity for you.

We detail that opportunity below.


2) There is Value to Offering Homes Equipped With Home Automation Features.

With the rising demand for smart homes across America, you have a unique opportunity: instead of forcing homeowners to find a smart home installer on their own, you can feature these technologies pre-installed in your new-construction properties.

And the demand already exists. The 2018 Coldwell Banker survey mentioned above also asked respondents what types of technologies they’d prefer to have pre-installed in their new home.

Here is some of that data:

  • 63 percent of respondents said they would prefer smart lighting systems and intelligent locks pre-installed in their new home.
  • 70 percent replied they would prefer smart carbon monoxide detectors pre-installed. 75 percent, meanwhile, said they would like pre-installed smart fire detectors.
  • 77 percent of potential homebuyers responded they would prefer intelligent thermostats pre-installed in their new home.

We at AVWORX consider this eye-opening data. Homeowners increasingly want to be connected to their houses, even when they’re perhaps hundreds or thousands of miles away. And they want their homes to be more efficient.

As a home builder, you can attract this savvy and growing audience by featuring pre-installed smart technologies in your properties. But where do you begin the process? This is how our team at AVWORX can help.


3) Your Firm Doesn’t Have to be Alone in the Process.

At AVWORX, we don’t just work with current homeowners to overhaul their existing properties with smart home services.

We also take pride in partnering with the Layton area’s design-build community to integrate smart home systems into new-construction properties.

Our approach is personalized and detailed. When we partner with your firm, we not only will set aside time to consult you about smart home systems, but we also will work with you to create customized designs for every property, maximizing value for both you and the potential homebuyer.

When it’s time for the installation phase of the project, we carefully work with all other stakeholders to ensure every device is installed, calibrated and connected expertly and deliberately. We take pride in our communication, promising every stakeholder is on the same page throughout the project.

The result: a high-performance smart home system that any homebuyer will love. And we can even offer ongoing smart home services to any of your brand-new homeowners, so they never feel alone once they begin using their new system.
