What is an HTA Technology Partner?
Just as residential electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems need advance planning, technology systems can no longer be an afterthought and need to be planned and coordinated in order to have the best outcome.
Home design and build professionals that proactively plan for their clients' technology needs are designated by the Home Technology Association as HTA Technology Partners.
These forward-thinking design and build professionals understand that their clients' safety and entertainment needs must be determined early. These systems affect space-planning, aesthetics, and other trades such as framing contractors, electricians, HVAC contractors, and more.
HTA Technology Partners will connect you to a qualified home technology integrator who will be able to inform you of your home technology options and provide design and engineering documentation that the architect, interior designer, and general contractor need to coordinate. They will often work with technology integrators that have the corresponding 'HTA Design Partner' designation. A technology integrator will also supply pricing to install such systems as security, Wi-Fi / networks, audio/video, smart home / home control, lighting controls, motorized shading, home theater and more.
Thanks to HTA Technology Partners proactive technology planning, their projects typically have much less technology-related change orders and project delays.
