Choosing a home automation service provider can be very challenging, but it is paramount that you take time and do your homework before entrusting the project to a third party company. This is mainly because these service providers will have to get access into your home as well as its safety and security system, so they must be truly reliable and trustworthy.
Make sure that you do a background check on each potential service provider. Do they have proper licenses to operate? Do they have appropriate certifications to carry products and services from manufacturers? Do their past clients recommend them to others? Most importantly, check their compliance to state laws and regulations as well as industry standards. Finally, ask for free quotes and free consultations before you make the final decision.
