Englewood, Colo.-based home builder Village Homes selected Lagotek’s “dual wireless” Home Intelligence Platform (HIP) as an upgrade feature for both buyers of its 600 new homes per year and as an enhancement to past buyers. Buyers can see and learn about home automation and HIP at Villages’ Distinctive Choices Studio, which includes its TECHTouch Showroom.

“Lagotek HIP is an ideal choice for our buyers,” said TECHTouch Sales Manager Josh Stewart.

“It offers a rich set of features combined with ease of use and ease of installation. Wireless solutions offered by Lagotek provide the lowest total cost of ownership for any system we have tested.”

Currently, the HIP solution addresses climate control, lighting, distributed audio, video surveillance and irrigation. Applications including security, LED lighting, shade and curtain controls, intercom and others will be available “in the near future,” said Lagotek.

“We are excited to offer Lagotek Home Intelligence Platform to our customers,” said Todd Baker, vice president of sales for Village Homes. “We see automation as an integral part of new homes going forward, that provide convenience, comfort and efficiency that previously was available only on the high-end. Lagotek’s simple and intuitive interface helps people fully realize all the potential of their home systems. We are looking forward to being an industry leader in making home automation an integral part of every home.”
