Thinking of starting a Smart Home installation business?
« on: July 07, 2015, 01:16:16 pm »
If you are looking to become a Smart Home installer then our Dianemo X86 Professional system is the perfect product for you. Read on to find out how you can begin your journey to becoming a professional Smart Home installer with one of our very affordable online Dianemo X86 Professional training packs.

Dianemo is all about providing a unique Home Automation platform for professional installers to build their businesses around. A platform that will allow you to build your business without the fear of another company selling exactly the same solution and simply under-cutting you. Dianemo X86 Professional has by far the lowest start-up cost for new installers in the industry - compare the start-up costs for any other professional system to ours. With other companies/systems you will have more expensive training, minimum amounts of hardware products that you must purchase and in many cases minimum stock levels to finance too. Typical start-up costs for new installers with other systems can be $15-25,000 usd and in some cases much much more.

Our only start-up requirements are that you have a demo/training system (you can use existing hardware for that) and that you undertake our Basic Dianemo Professional training. Basic Dianemo Professional training is delivered online and at your pace by one of our experienced installer/trainers. Basic training covers the principals of Smart Home installation, best practices in installation, typical configurations, example set-ups and remote support sessions. Your trainer is available for assistance after basic training is complete and during your first install too. We take training you very seriously and it is one of our key requirements to make sure that a high quality standard is maintained.

Dianemo X86 Professional is marketed directly to professional installers - we do no traditional marketing at all. We rely purely on reputation and 'word of mouth' amongst professional installers to spread our message. Our professional installers prefer it that way too in fact, as it allows them to build unique customised solutions for their customers, and maintain good margins at the same time. Most of our installers purchase our Dianemo x86 Professional software and integrate it with their own specialist hardware solution which again enables them to sell a unique system at much better margins. Being able to integrate our software with your hardware also enables you to build your own brand alongside ours - something we are very supportive of and happy for you to do too.

Compared to any other Home Automation system on the market (eg Control4, RTI, KNX solutions, Crestron or any other) we provide incredible flexibility to you the installer and we also provide a much lower cost of entry too;

  • You can choose your hardware solutions and integrate exactly which unique features will suit your market (we can assist in choosing which hardware to choose)
  • We impose NO minimum order quantities or quarterly sales targets on you at all - most other Home Automation system suppliers do.
  • We do not expect you to purchase expensive demo hardware from us or even stock our hardware - most other Home Automation system suppliers do.
  • Our software can be integrated with a wide range of hardware at a wide range of price points - from a $45 USD Raspberry Pi2 to a $2000 USD fan-less industrial PC. This enables you to build unique solutions at almost any price point and always maintain a healthy margin and good profits.

Please get in touch by PM here on the forum if you have any questions about becoming a professional installer or to find our more about our very affordable Basic Dianemo X86 Professional training packs (includes a Dianemo X86 Professional license + 8 hours of basic training with a trainer/installer).

Virtual Smart Home Expert - online training/consulting

We are very happy to answer your questions and informally discuss what you need to consider when planning to start a Smart Home installation business. But if you are serious about starting your business, and would like to dig a little deeper into the specifics, then I would suggest you sign-up for one of our 'Virtual Smart Home Expert' online training/consulting packages. The purpose is really to provide overall expert advice and support to you on-demand rather than to debug specific issues with installations (but there are no hard and fast rules).

Our 'Virtual Smart Home Expert' online training/consulting reviews are carried out interactively online with me. You get 6x 30 min interactive Google Hangout sessions with me where I will provide suggestions, recommendations regarding your overall business, hardware selection, training, marketing, installation skills or any other aspect that you need input on. Think of it as having a very experienced installation expert available whenever you need one. Ask any questions you like and you can also ask me to focus in on any specific areas you feel you need a better handle on.

You simply book sessions with me as you need them (up to the 6 provided in the package). There are no time limits on when you use your sessions, simply use them as you feel the need (please book them at least a day in advance though please). You can also purchase additional sessions later if you feel you need them.

- 'Virtual Smart Home Expert' online training/consulting package; $150 USD (6x 30 min sessions)

The $150 USD price is an introductory offer. Please PM me here to purchase your 'Virtual Smart Home Expert'.

Best
