Builder: New Home Company Adopts Smart-Home Package

The New Home Company (NEW HOME; NYSE: NWHM) has unveiled EVO Home Tech, a technology-forward program that integrates modern digital features with connectivity, ease of use, customization and efficiency.

Advanced smart-home systems from Brilliant and Savant allow NEW HOME buyers to centralize and easily control everything from lighting and utilities to security and entertainment.

The EVO Home Tech package that comes with the purchase of all upcoming NEW HOME residences will include the following:

  • Whole-home Wi-Fi
  • Video doorbell
  • Wi-Fi thermostat
  • Wi-Fi garage door opener
  • Smart electronic entry door lock
  • Lighting control

It also offers “White Glove” service that will ensure home buyers have the ability to operate their technology components. It will include:

  • In-home orientation
  • Activation of all smart-home devices
  • Wi-Fi setup and connection to homeowner provided router from service provider
  • Training for homeowners on all products included in the EVO Home Tech Package

As part of the launch of EVO Home Tech, NEW HOME has partnered with two emerging leaders in the smart-home industry: Brilliant and Savant.

Brilliant offers an in-wall touchscreen control system that makes it easy to control smart devices and experiences throughout the home: lighting, doorbells, locks, climate, music, video intercom, scenes and more. With Amazon Alexa built-in, Brilliant also offers the option to enable voice control in any room without the need for countertop voice appliances. Brilliant Controls install in the place of a standard light switch and include a built-in motion sensor and camera with a privacy shutter.

Brilliant is designed to evolve with the needs of a homeowner and works with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Sonos, Ring, Ecobee, Honeywell, Schlage, Kwikset, Yale, August, Philips Hue, LIFX, TP-Link, Wemo and SmartThings.

“We’re incredibly excited to partner with The New Home Company to bring the best possible smart home experience to every NEW HOME customer,” said Aaron Emigh, Co-Founder and CEO of Brilliant. “By offering homes with a pre-installed Brilliant Smart Home System and devices like a Ring doorbell, smart lock and smart thermostat, NEW HOME is setting the new industry standard for what a true integrated smart home should be.”

In May of last year, NEW HOME announced that it became the nation’s first home builder to offer Savant Breaker-Companion Modules into its energy efficient residences in California. These highly intelligent modules have been designed to enable homeowners to add energy management services and lighting control solutions to their smart home functionality and enhance their lifestyle while meeting California’s strict Title 24 energy regulations.
