Moseley Featured in a Richmond Magazine Article
We usually work behind the scenes, providing technology solutions for our customers throughout Richmond. We’re in and out of homes and offices installing theater systems, flat-panel TVs, wireless networks, central vacuums, and central home control systems for lighting, audio, and temperature controls.
But recently, we had a chance to step into the limelight for a feature article in Richmond Magazine. This piece talks about how technology streamlines our homes’ essential functions, something we’re passionate about.
It All Starts With a Solid Network
When the Richmond Magazine team caught up with our Director of Technology, Brian Moseley, they wanted to know about technology trends that enhance our lives at home. Brian explained that technology facilitates just about every aspect of our experience when we’re at home. From lights and temperature to entertainment and security, it’s all technology.
In Brian’s opinion, though, it all comes down to a solid network. All of those conveniences need network connectivity; which is why the demand the Moseley team has seen for network installs and upgrades has grown exponentially since the start of the pandemic. More people are working from home, and have kids doing virtual schooling, so it is imperative to have the bandwidth capabilities to keep up with the workload.
After networks, lighting (and specifically smart switches) are the next most requested install. Brian explained that the demand is so high in part because lighting has come so far. You don’t have to replace fixtures or rewire the house now if you want to change your lighting.
All you need to do is install smart switches, and they make a big difference. Smart switches allow you to set themes for certain moods or times of the day. They also allow you to control your lighting using a smartphone or laptop, even if you are away from home.
Advice For New Home Construction
With the rapid growth of technology usage in our homes, Brian says homeowners could save a significant amount of money by thinking proactively about future technology needs.
He told the Richmond Magazine team that it’s helpful to plan ahead and contact someone in this industry as a new home is being built. Even if the homeowner doesn’t want to install everything right away, planning for the possibility will save a lot of money later. It is as imperative to get the right technology infrastructure in your home for current and future electronics as it is to make sure your home is built on a solid foundation.
