With the increasing need for comfort, convenience, and safety, many people are now joining the home automation movement and turning their homes into smart homes. Even though home automation systems help control various appliances and simplifies tasks, people are still hesitant to invest in this type of technology. This is likely because people have misconceptions about the concept, performance, effectiveness, cost, and so on. 

To set the record straight and help you make a more informed decision, HT-Install has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about home automation.

Myth 1: Smart Homes are unreliable
This is often the result of the DIY approach. Customers will envision a number of things such as temperature or light control, but often overlook other areas where professionals can offer significant value, such as network and system design, or power management. We provide free consultations to ensure that our customers receive a functional system that accommodates their budget. Our goal is for you to love and use your smart home every day.

Myth 2: WiFi eliminates the need for wires
The proliferation and dominance of smartphones and tablets in our daily lives has made WiFi one of the most notorious components most people are familiar with. Manufacturers add WiFi capabilities to many of our smart devices: TVs, cameras, speakers, and so on. For a multitude of reasons, using a wire whenever possible will deliver the performance we expect from a robust system and save you a lot of unnecessary headaches.

Myth 3: You can install new hardware without contacting your provider
Many people assume that adding a small component or changing a single connection will not affect their overall system. However, a quick phone call before adding new hardware can prevent hours of troubleshooting as unidentified equipment can often create issues if improperly installed or configured.
