Newbie needs advice

I have NO experience with any Z-Wave technology, but I am hoping to correct that Real Soon Now.

I am in the design phase for a new home that I am having built (about 4000 square feet).

What will be better to include into the design, as opposed to having hardware installed after the interior has been “finished”.

Is there any dealer or hardware provider in the San Diego area that might be able to provide me some consultation services?
