The AVD and Project Connection WHITE PAPER on Home Automation

Australia's only truly vertically integrated home automation solutions provider - AVD Australia and Project Connection Australia have released a world first - a White Paper titled The Architect's Guide to Home Automation.

This 7 -step methodology for smart home projects was the result of over 20 years in the industry, providing home automation consulting, design, engineering, electrical and project management services to clients in Australia, South East Asia and the USA.


"Working with a home automation designer is no different to working with an interior designer, landscape architect or other design professional." said Sandy Howard, Managing Director, AVD. "Busy architects have their hands full providing core services and can't be an expert at everything. The White Paper very simply provides a seven step solution for creating intelligent environments in new homes and is something that should be carefully read by anyone and everyone contemplating a smart home project."

The comprehensive White Paper also gives clear and concise instructions on what to look for in a home automation designer and when hiring an electrical contractor for a home automation project.

It also states that whilst the potential benefits of a home automation system are great, the downside to getting it wrong is also considerable. The complexity of integrating so many electronic systems can often lead to unwanted consequences such as the systems not working as planned; no true integration; the project blows out in terms of time and budget and aesthetics are compromised so that the smart home ends up looking like an electronics showroom.

AVD and Project Connection are a home automation one -stop shop; providing everything from developing a scope of works; design and documentation; selecting an electrical contractor via tender process; cabling and installation infrastructures; project management; products selection and installation through to final handover and tuition.

The companies have become synonymous for providing architects, home owners, builders and interior designers of Australia with a one -stop, end -to -end home automation solution.

The White Paper is available as a download from www.avd.com.au and www.project -connection.com.au
