Best Buy Co., Inc. and Newmark Homes, a Division of Technical Olympic, USA, Inc., today announced an agreement to provide Best Buy's Networked Home Solutions, a selection of home networking packages, in all of Newmark's homes in the Dallas, TX, U.S. metroplex. Beginning this month, a base structured wiring network that allows for maximum versatility with home technology will be standard in more than 700 homes in Dallas and surrounding areas.

According Best Buy, it created Networked Home Solutions because many new homebuyers are interested in home networking, but lack the knowledge or resources to incorporate the technology into their home. Networked Home Solutions packages enable Best Buy to align with the builder to make sure the homeowner has all of the behind-the-scenes wiring needed to quickly, neatly and easily connect the technology within their home.

Networked Home Solutions offers two packages:

  • Lifestyle Series packages that target specific entertainment enthusiasts (available packages called Music Lover, Movie Buff, Computer Whiz and Ultimate Entertainment Enthusiast), and
  • Foundation Series packages that allow consumers flexibility to create a solution specific to their needs and ensure new homes are wired for the technology and entertainment people use every day.

    "Most homes built more than four years ago are not equipped to handle all the technology components people are using today -- like multiple PCs, broadband Internet connections, home theater and multi-room audio," said Sean Skelley, vice president of Strategic Planning and Business Development for Best Buy. "Best Buy's Networked Home Solutions packages take the confusion and concern out of home networking by delivering benefits that are simple to use and easy to understand. By aligning directly with the builder, we make it a seamless process to connect technology products and build the fun into new homes." =
