In today’s world, we’re all bombarded by advertising. Try this new fitness fad, buy the latest and greatest phone, attend this event… it’s constant! When it comes to more important decisions like who to trust with your home’s security and automation, the never-ending promotions are more confusing and overwhelming than helpful. With the home security market valued at more than $42 billion in the United States, more and more companies are adding this offering to their roster. Obviously working with a true smart home professional is your best option, but what makes one company stand out among a sea of others? While research is the key to connecting with the right team to meet your needs, one factor should sway your decision – the company’s ability to transparently articulate what they can provide for your home.
The Benefit of Transparency
Working with a company that can clearly tell you what they can do to keep your home safe and smart is rare these days, but it’s a vital factor you want in a partner. It offers you the peace of mind you need to ensure the company will be honest and show integrity in everything they do. In a world where you can easily choose one competitor over another, that trust is going to be powerful for both of you.
More than that, though, a transparent company means a stable company. You want to work with a home automation/security/AV partner that truly believes in what they do and solely focuses on that mission. You don’t want to work with a partner who isn’t quite sure what they do and have a cycle of staff members in and out, barely aware of the company’s mission. Transparent companies build employee stability, and that means they can focus on providing the best service to clients.
What a Transparent Company Looks Like
Understanding the need to pair with a transparent company is one thing. Knowing what to look for, though, is something else entirely. As you research the right service company to meet your needs, what signs should you look for?
- Only consider those who don’t play games with their pricing structure. Nothing is more likely to kill that transparency than to find out that you’ve been told one price, but what you get for that price is something very different.
- Work with companies who are honest about the data they collect about you. Most companies will need some information from you, but they should be honest about the information they collect about you from both on and offline interactions.
- Think about companies that can communicate to you exactly what your home’s smart system will look like once it’s finished. You should easily be able to see the blueprints they’ll use, as well as an outline of the equipment that will be installed and how each piece works together.
