WHEN TO INVOLVE PARAGON SMART?

Involve Us Early

We can achieve the best results and the highest performance when we have the fewest constraints. Often in a project, early arbitrary choices—where a pipe goes, where a door is located, the exact room dimensions—can limit audio/video design options. We can achieve very high-performance cost- effective results when the project is still in the design phase. Once construction begins, the cost of high-performance rises.

We believe our electronics systems should complement the home, not overpower it. When we design a home automation system, the first thing we do is listen to you. Once we understand your goals and lifestyle, we will make recommendations based on our collective industry experience. For example:

We will respect your budget. Paragon strives to select the best, most cost-effective products possible. We don’t use “cookie-cutter” systems because we know that each client has unique needs. Your Paragon home automation design will be a completely custom experience. Paragon practices active cost-benefit analysis at every stage of design. For instance, in a multi-room home automation installation, we prefer to use 14-gauge wire instead of 16-gauge. The cost is only slightly higher, but that wire choice improves both amplifier and speaker performance - the music sounds better AND the system lasts longer.

We consider room acoustics, furniture location, and your lifestyle when we locate speakers. Many of these choices are hidden. If we skimp on in-wall cables, you will never see the difference, but you would hear it in the form of interference and sonic degradation. Without proper speaker placement, sound quality is likewise compromised. Without the appropriate amplifier, you end up with elevator music.

Most components these days feature wireless access and/or control, which is great for home decor but can be a challenging load for basic home networks. We prioritize home wifi networks as the backbone of our automation system. Our Information Technology experts spec and install routers, wireless access points, and other IT components to ensure reliable wireless performance within and around your home. This ensures that many of your working components can be hidden, and that your system can be enjoyed without interruption.

We believe that the better we do our job, the less you’ll see it. A well-designed and meticulously-installed home automation system is easy and intuitive to operate, and becomes part of the daily fabric of your life.
