Philly is a city that’s going through a big face lift. Even though it boasts some of the oldest buildings in the country, locals can’t help but notice new construction and remodeling on just about every corner.
But the renovations don’t stop at the city limits. The Main Line is enjoying the revival just as much as the City of Brotherly Love.
If you’re a builder or building manager currently updating an old property, this blog will help you understand why it’s important to start partnering with a smart home integrator right away.

When the area first started growing, the builders didn’t necessarily anticipate the advances in technology we enjoy in 2018.
In fact, the earliest buildings weren’t even designed to handle electricity.
Today, though, users expect a certain level of technological capabilities in their properties. And that includes integrated smart technology.
Whether you’re renovating an old house, converting an old building into a modern MDU, or updating an office for the twenty-first century, technology is the cornerstone that will help it prepare for the future.
By contacting and working with an integrator early on, they can begin designing and engineering wired networks that make installing smart technology easier down the line.
Because the network is essential to integrating and operating all sorts of technology, it’s important to map out how the wiring will work within the infrastructure before the building is complete. That way, your integrator can prevent or work around any problems that may arise.
When some builders hear the phrase “smart technology,” they conjure images of talking refrigerators and other futuristic devices that seem like unnecessary additions.
But many so-called “smart” devices offer a practical solution for enjoying day-to-day operations, for home and business owners: centralized control.
Lighting, shading, and thermostat control are important factors in the comfort of any building, and they’re often the first systems installed before a building becomes operational.
It doesn’t matter if you’re building for a single-family residence or a multi-floor office building, centralized control of operations adds convenience and value for the end user. Rather than operating their lights via individual switches in each room, smart technology allows for control over each room with a single device.
In that way, working with an integrator early on ensures the success of your next old-building renovation.
