Konnected in a New Build

A Smart Home Solution for New Construction

Konnected is an IoT solution that allows you to use a wired alarm system (including all its wired sensors) with popular smart home platforms like SmartThings, Alexa, Hubitat, and Home Assistant. Moreover, Konnected integrates with Control 4, and we also have a Smart Garage Door Opener

This makes Konnected a great option for new builds, as you can have the home pre-wired with affordable cable and then easily add Konnected later. If you want to understand the purpose of Home Automation, you can read our blog post here about "What is the Purpose of Home Automation."

There are several advantages to using Konnected in a new build:

  • Flexibility: Konnected lets you choose the smart home platform that best suits your needs. You can also add or remove sensors at any time without calling in a professional.
  • Affordability: Konnected is a much more affordable option than traditional monitored security systems. There are no monthly fees; you can monitor your alarm using your existing wired alarm system, saving you hundreds of dollars annually. We work with Noonlight in the USA if you want a monitored solution.
  • Customization: Konnected is highly customizable. You can create custom rules and automation in the home automation platform of your choice to tailor to your specific needs. For example, you could set up a rule to disarm your system automatically when you arrive home or to turn on your lights and siren if a motion sensor is triggered. We wrote an interesting blog post here about how Konnected can improve your smart home.
  • Peace of mind: Konnected gives you the peace of knowing that your home is secure, even when you're not there. You can receive alerts on your smartphone if any sensors are triggered or the garage is left open, and you can remotely arm and disarm your system or open and close your garage from anywhere in the world.
  • Increase property value: If you're building a new home, Konnected is an excellent option for a smart home system. It's flexible, affordable, customizable, and reliable. According to a report by SafeWise, a home security and safety advocacy website, 63% of home buyers in the United States say that a home equipped with smart home technology is a must-have feature when purchasing a home. If you are a developer, Konnected has a solution for your customers. We wrote a blog about this very subject here.

Here are some additional tips for using Konnected in a new build:

  • Work with your electrician: When planning your new home, work with your electrician to pre-wire your door and window sensors and contacts. This will involve running wires from all your doors and windows to a central location where you can install the Konnected panel.
  • Choose the fitting Konnected kit: Konnected offers a variety of kits, so it's essential to choose the one that's right for your needs. Consider the number of zones you need and the home automation platform that is important to you.
  • Install Konnected yourself: Konnected is easy to install, even for beginners. Join the thousands of other customers who self-installed their Konnected solution. There are plenty of online resources to help you get started, including our very own Community site and our Facebook and Reddit Groups.

If you're looking for a smart home solution that is flexible, affordable, customizable, and reliable, Konnected is an excellent option for your new build.
