Home Automation and Large Project Planning

smart home system design

When designing whole home automation and audio video systems, there needs to be a unique level of communication between the homeowner, contruction personnel, and audio video professionals. We have a standard process that is typical between homeowner and Capitol Audio Video that stands as a guide to how the audio visual and Austin home automation design process works best.

  • First meeting: meet and greet and discuss technological potential and rough budget constraints with some standard do’s and don’ts
  • Capitol system design, efficacy & usability, and initial detailed proposal for scope of work based on initial meeting findings
  • Recommended proposal emailed or presented to client and building professional (if warranted)
  • Phone call or in person meeting to help client navigate the details and discuss the recommended design and attributes
  • Changes and updates to the original proposal agreed upon and notated
  • Follow up proposal with changes and updates
  • Phone call to discuss the 2nd round of changes and updates
  • Final Revisions and agreed final layout
  • Final Proposal and any last issues/questions/changes before project kickoff
  • Services agreement and project confirmation
  • Project Kickoff Meeting (Optional)

This is a basic guide on how the A/V design and initial stages (pre project kickoff) typically work. There may be differences from project to project, and client to client, but this gives the client a rough idea of how things typically move forward in the layout and design process with Capitol Audio Video.
