Integrating a LUX Space
Hardwick runs a lifestyle assessment with the client and the integrator to determine what they expect from the platform. Following this initial assessment, the integrator and buyer step in.
“Once the integrator is involved and we start with that base level of low-voltage technology, when we get into control systems for lighting and shades or overall house automation, we pretty much turn the integrator loose with the owner,” says Hardwick.
Builders can follow this example and work with an integrator to program a range of unique automation triggers reflecting client expectations. One of these unique automation triggers happens in the kitchen. Smart mirrors are located above the kitchen appliances and can be integrated to only turn on when the rest of the kitchen is in use.
On this project, the integrator was brought on early to meet with the buyer—this helps the builder stay efficient because once the home’s frame is up, the integrator can take over to run structured wiring and designate placement of electronics and control systems.
