Confirming Insurance Coverage

Prior to launching your smart home adventure, confirming that your installer possesses proper insurance coverage is imperative. You want your living room to be magical, not a liability!

Professional indemnity insurance is like a safety net for your installer, covering any goof-ups, omissions, or negligence that could result in financial loss or damage. Public liability insurance, on the other hand, is like a protective shield around the installation process, guarding against any potential hiccups that may occur.

To double-check that you’re covered, ask your installer for proof of insurance, review the policies, and contact the insurance provider directly. By taking these steps, you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands during the installation process.

John Ross Smart Living have a comprehensive insurance policy covering all aspects of the work we provide such as professional indemnity, public liability, employers liability and more. We know it’s solid – we work with the best broker in Perth!

Smart home installers should be like resident geniuses, well-versed in all types of smart home systems, devices, and hubs. For example, New Wave AV offers top-notch smart home technologies from Lutron, Control4, Artcoustic, Kaleidescape, and Sony.

  • The scope of work

  • Price

  • Reputation and reviews

Ensuring Quality Equipment and Installation

The quality of your smart home depends largely on the equipment and installation, hence selecting an installer who employs top-tier equipment from well-known manufacturers and stands behind their work is vital.

To determine the quality of the installer’s equipment, research the brands and products they use, and ask about their experience with those products. High-quality smart home equipment is characterised by:

  • Compatibility
