Smart Home and Building Technology
Each project is the beginning of a lifelong relationship
We begin our work together with an interview that takes a deep dive into your needs and priorities. During this session, we’ll explore an array of product offerings and system configurations.
Channeling your lifestyle and values, we custom-design a system that upholds ease-of-use, beauty, quality, and your well being as our benchmarks. With your feedback, we fine tune to perfection, meeting both your expectations and your budget.
Working in tandem with your architect, designer, builder and other stakeholders to move your project through the pre-wire, trim, installation, and programming phases. Finally,we’ll teach you to use your system and make any final tweaks to bring it to perfection.
Each project is the beginning of a life-long relationship built on responsive service, our warranty, and trust. Our dedicated team and remote monitoring is supported by systems that diagnose and resolve problems before you even know there is an issue.
FROM START, TO FINISH, AND BEYOND…
End to End Integration
As an end to end technology integrator we implement several phases through the course of a project from concept to completion. Careful thought and attention is given during each step to ensure you receive a solution tailored to your needs and delivers the benefits you desire. We are committed to making the entire experience from start to finish as effective and efficient as possible.
We are responsible for all phases of the integrated technology work including the needs assessment, system design, engineering, installation, commissioning, training and service. During the design-build process it is very important to ensure the needs analysis (also called the Discovery) has been performed otherwise the system design and project contract will be too vague.
How we create your modern home
Pulling together the design, technology and installation needed to create a modern home can be overwhelming. We’re here to talk you through the myriad brands, products and options on offer in plain language to pinpoint exactly what you’re looking for – then make your dream home a reality.
1. DISCOVERY PROCESS
LET’S DISCUSS YOUR IDEAL HOME
You describe your vision for your home; we suggest how we can bring that concept to life. We then use your architectural plans to put together a free technology proposal that shows options, features and pricing.
We begin every smart home automation project with a discovery process either at our office, your home, or over the phone. During this conversation, we listen to your needs and desires. Our preliminary interviews are relaxed yet specific, as we endeavor to balance your desires with the realities of technological trends, monetary goals, architectural and design aesthetics, and built-in obsolescence.
2. SYSTEM DESIGN
FROM IDEAS TO CONCEPT
We take your vision, infuse it with our tech magic and develop a detailed plan for your new modern home.
Now that pertinent information has been gathered, a detailed report can be developed in accordance to your plans. We put our system design team to work to define all aspects of the project functionality for each room or area. A set of project drawings are created that show graphically where all hardware will be located. We meet with you the customer to deliver this information for review, feedback and ultimate approval.
3. COLLABORATION & WORK BEGINS
After the project system design and price has been signed off, our team will plan and produce drawings for the installation of the technical solutions to not only meet client needs, but ensure reliability and ease of use.
We then meet with relevant parties (architects, builders, interior designers, etc) to ensure the project runs smoothly. We can then collaborate with their needs and them with ours to deliver you the best end product.
Work begins! And quite often, continues. No matter the size or scale of your project, Praxis Group teams arrive tidy, energized, and on time. From the scheduling of site-work to the condition of our vehicles to the work itself, we always show total respect for your time, your belongings, your space and safety. And we execute with precision and pristine workmanship, throughout the life of the job.
Knowing the unique requirements for various subsystems, our technicians expertly install and test all devices to ensure they work as specified in the original documentation. How long the process takes will depend on the project scope as well as any change orders along the way.
PROGRAMMED FOR PERFECTION
Your technology hub, which controls every aspect of your home’s environment, entertainment and security, is carefully built, meticulously programmed and rigorously tested to ensure everything works perfectly before being delivered to your home.
Our job is only complete when the customer is 100% satisfied with the finished product. The length of time for this phase is dependent upon the time frame of construction. Once system installation is complete, all documentation is updated.
