    • Automated Shades
    • Stylish Lighting Panels
    • Hidden TVs
    • Elegant Smart Lighting Design
    • Aesthetically Pleasing Whole-House Audio
    • TVs that Resemble a Framed Picture

At Integral Home Technology, we make it our business to be on top of the latest, most design-friendly smart home technology so that we can help you meet your clients’ smart home technology needs!

We created the Integral Home Technology Preferred Design Partner Program to formalize our relationships with interior designers in Tampa, Tampa Bay, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and beyond to our mutual benefit. This is a no-cost initiative that simply helps define how we work with designers and uses best practices to ensure the best results.

The Benefits of Partnering with Integral Home Technology for Your Smart Home Needs

There are hundreds of home technology “integrators” in Central Florida, and they all want to form alliances with designers. However, with so many to choose from, it’s hard for designers to know who to select as their trusted partner in home technology. Here’s why we should be at the top of your list:

HTA Certified HTA Design Partner Tampa FL

We Are HTA Certified. This means we have undergone a rigorous, unbiased certification program executed by the Home Technology Association so that you can avoid unprofessional results that leave a bad impression on both you and your client. HTA Certification is the Home Technology Association’s seal of approval that a firm is well-established, reputable, technically competent, takes care of customers after installation, has no lawsuits or tax liens, is insured, endorsed by manufacturers, other designers, and builders…the list goes on. Working with an uncertified integrator means you’re rolling the dice and can expect unpredictable results at best.

Integral is an HTA Design Partner.  The HTA Design Partner Program was created to recognize HTA Certified integrators that not only offer technology consultation and design, but also collaborate with architects, interior designers, and builders using best practices to ensure that technology is integrated into the home in the best way possible. These “Rules of Engagement” are designed by the HTA with a board of trades to determine these best practices.

Integral takes great pride in these HTA Certifications, which are not easy to achieve, as well as in our existing partnerships with Tampa designers, our professionalism, and our client satisfaction as evidenced by our 5-star Google rating.

The Benefits of Being a Preferred Tampa Designer Partner

Referrals: Referrals go both ways. While you might refer us to a potential client who is interested in technology, Integral Home Technology gives contacts and leads to our preferred Tampa designers when we work on new homes, second homes, remodels, from our participation in organizations like NARI Tampa Bay, the NKBA, NAHB, and CEDIA, and more. If you’re an Integral Preferred Design Partner, you are at the top of our list, and we hope to earn a spot at the top of yours.

Tech Tools: We have the tools you need to start the conversation with your clients about technology, making you a valuable and knowledgeable resource for your clients. For example:

Technology Designer Cover

Integral’s Home Technology Budgeting tool creates realistic installed cost budget ranges for home tech systems ranging from very good to top-of-the-line.

Our Project Technology Assessment Form, available only to our Preferred Partners, can be used as a checklist with your clients early in your project timeline to help them ascertain their technology needs, such as lighting, shading, hidden TV mounts, TV frames, and much more.

As our relationship strengthens, we’ll both be enriched in unexpected ways. For example, we recently worked with a design-build pro on a home who is now on the cover of a recent Technology Designer magazine thanks to Integral’s marketing efforts. Opportunities for amplifying both our brand and yours are around every corner.


Bring Us Into the Project Early for Better Smart Home Results

When working with technology on your projects, it’s essential to consult with a technology integrator as early as possible in your project’s timeline. We can help plan light switches, designate spots for invisible speakers, help with window treatment automation design, and much more. This will save you retrofit headaches and expenses down the line. When our professions openly communicate early, projects proceed smoothly with fewer change orders and better aesthetics.


Lunch & Learns for Tampa-Area Designers

Our Lunch & Learns, which we hold every month at our offices or the offices of our partners, are designed to help interior designers like you learn about smart home technology, including the latest design-forward products and finishes and how to handle the conversation of technology with your clients, making you a valuable and knowledgeable resource for homeowners.
