Deako makes it easy and cost effective for builders to future-proof and pre-wire homes for smart lighting. Using the Deako’s patented modular design, a backplate is installed at the trim stage of the build, then Deako Simple Switches are installed throughout the house adding no extra labor cost to the installation. From that point the Deako Simple Switches can be upgraded to Deako Smart Switches at any time, without turning off the power or having to hire an electrician. Packages can be sold before or after the close of the home making it is easy and flexible for both home builders and home owners. Once a smart switch is clicked-in, homeowners have access to an extensive range of features like personalized lighting scenes, voice control from Amazon Alexa or Google Home, countdown timers and more.
Homes with Deako are future-proof. Meaning that once the Deako backplate is installed, we aren’t going anywhere. Homeowners can easily upgrade switches on their own. For most people it takes an electrician to replace a light switches, and electricians are simply too expensive. As technology advances, there is no worry about replacing difficult hardware, hiring an electrician, or having old outdated technology on your wall. Simply order a switch online, and upgrade in seconds. It’s that simple. Once a smart switch is clicked-in, homeowners have access to an extensive range of features like personalized lighting scenes, voice control from Amazon Alexa or Google Home, countdown timers and more.
Builders and Contractors:
Currently home builders will typically include 1-2 smart switches for $50-$100 added cost (with no ability to make profits on upgrades). This isn’t the best user experience, however, builders cannot afford to offer an entire house full of smart switches if some people aren’t willing to pay for it. Home builders need the Deako modular approach which means: No added costs (including no added labor) Whole home solution $400-1,200 builder profit on upgrades Electricians & Low Voltage profit too
