MHI Adds Smart Home Technology as Standard Feature in All New Homes

February 1, 2019

McGuyer Homebuilders, Inc., (MHI) has partnered with Control4 to offer a reliable, expandable smart home package in every new home the company builds.

McGuyer Homesbuilders offers its award-winning designs in Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth under signature brands Plantation Homes and Coventry Homes. The company’s Coventry Homes and Wilshire Homes offer designs in Austin and San Antonio. Now, all new homes in every market will include a suite of smart home features powered by Control4 as standard.

“Smart home technology has made important advances in the last few years, and we wanted to offer our buyers these modern-day conveniences,” said Gary Tesch, MHI CEO. “The challenge for us was to provide an all-inclusive, simple-to-use package that reflects our ‘Built Around You’ philosophy. We didn’t want one-size-fits all. We wanted something that would allow our buyers an easy way to customize their technology experience.”

Tesch said his team researched approximately 15 to 20 technology platforms before settling on Control4, a leading provider of personalized automation and control solutions.

“We wanted to provide a single-system solution that just works,” Tesch said. “Control4 was the only platform where everyone on our team said ‘yes, that’s the one we want to use.’”

The standard package, offered at no additional cost to the buyer, includes a Control4 CA-1 comfort and automation controller, an Ecobee Smart Thermostat with Alexa voice control, exterior and back door lighting, a Kwikset front door lock, Echo Dot, Control4 smart light switches and a Ring video doorbell. All homes will come pre-wired for a wireless access point and feature a 30-inch Wi-Fi compatible component enclosure.

All new model homes will feature the standard smart home features, as well as options available to further customize the technology to meet their needs. Buyers will be able to choose these at the builder design center along with their flooring, cabinets and countertops.

“There will be a technology discussion with someone who can show them all the potential options available,” Tesch said. “They will be able to decide how they want to customize it in their own home, managed appropriately with their budget in mind.”

As new technology becomes available, homeowners will be able to add or upgrade through Control4.
