As we have discussed in previous entries in the vendor relationship series, when working on a full home automation job site, it is extremely important that integration professionals take a whole project view of the site. It is because of this simple fact that it’s especially important to form a great relationship with perhaps the most important employee in a luxury home environment, the house or estate manager. Estate Managers are the top-level executive position in a large household or complex of properties that employ a wide array of staff or vendors. They are responsible for working directly with the owner to plan and execute the overall plan for management of the property. Due to the wide ranging nature of the estate manager’s duties, it is imperative that as a technology integrator we form a great relationship with these individuals.
