Every year new products come to market, and eager buyers snap them up without considering how they will integrate into their current technologies, or if they will become a stumbling block for future upgrading. For example, we recently completed the technology wiring in a home where the original integrator had been dismissed. When we arrived on site, drywall and painting was complete, and this brand new home had the correct network wiring installed, but no TV cable. The day the owners moved in, they had no way to connect their TV without special converter systems. It is a critical step to consider what the needs will be in a few years to ensure that the ability to upgrade is kept intact.
