Smart yet Simple


Dwell Smart Philadelphia

Dwell Smart Philadelphia started as a simple idea between two friends one evening while watching their kids play at Spruce St Harbor Park, “what if we create smart yet simple homes”. Matthew Ferrarini (National Award-Winning Designer & Smart Home Certified Programmer ) and Rigoberto Fantauzzi (Systems Network Engineer & Smart Home Certified Programmer) realized there was a void in the market. Home automation companies are often emphasize the technology and devices first and the people second, which creates overly complicated systems. With this in mind, the two friends founded Dwell Smart - a lifestyle inspired home automation company that creates comprehensive yet intuitive automation systems based on “how” the client’s (and their family) live. Joshua Roane Certified (Smart Home Technician) & Ariel Morel (Smart Home Enthusiasts) would later join the venture as Co-Owners.

How We Work

Each project starts with a household behavioral analysis to better understand the natural family function (how they enter the house, where they typically dine, how they communicate, how they entertain, etc.) to establish a behavioral automation baseline. Then we learn about their wants (home theater, audio zones, fitness rooms, voice control etc.). Lastly we determine their needs (security and safety), entry controls, cameras, smart smoke smoke detectors, air quality regulators, etc. It’s all about the client! Instead of simply asking what they want and blindly giving it to them, we curate completely custom lifestyle inspired automated systems.
