FAQ's

1. What is Home Automation? 

ANSWER: Home Automation is automating the control of your home so it works for you, adding convenience and making your life easier, even while saving energy! It can be as basic as dimming lights with a remote control or as complex as setting up a network of items in your home (such as a thermostat, security system, lighting and appliances) that can be programmed using a main controller or even with your cell phone from anywhere in the world.


2. Why should I choose One Way? 

ANSWER: The One Way Team has made it an essential effort to provide integrated services during all phases of the low voltage needs. No other trade during the building process has more interaction with the other trades than the Residential Electronic Systems Contractor. One Way takes it one step further by handling all of the low voltage, high voltage, and solar needs; therefore, increasing production, lowering costs, and providing a truly integrated system.


3. What is the first step?

ANSWER: The first step in any residential system is the design and requirements phase. This process entails a meeting with a design professional to gather requirements for the project and provide information. The design process includes input from you and your family in addition to any input from your design team (builder, architect, designer…). Dedication and input from all parties will actually save money and time in the long run.


4. How much is this going to cost us? How should I budget?

ANSWER: Our experienced team will work with you from the beginning of your project to understand current needs, future plans, and help understand your expectations.


5. What are the benefits of planning and installing during initial construction?

ANSWER:  Although a home can be retrofitted, it is always cheaper to plan and install the wires needed during initial construction when the walls are open and visible. Adding wires later can prove more costly. Additionally, future proofing your home is accomplished by installing empty flexible conduit throughout the home thus leaving room for upgrades in the future.


6. I want to upgrade my home technology, but I don’t want costly repairs. Can that be done?

ANSWER: Yes. Often times our technicians can add wires to an existing home without cutting holes. Our experienced staff is trained and educated in retrofit design and installation.
