Home automation or smart homes can be loosely defined as the act of controlling appliances and select pieces of equipment in your home remotely and automatically. This could extend to turning an appliance off from the other side of the house or adjusting your washing machine’s timer from a location far away from your home. Homes that use these techniques are often dubbed ‘smart homes’.
So how can a home automation system revolutionize your home’s functionality and bring it into the future?

What can you automate within your home?
Along with appliances and equipment, there are plenty of other things that can be automated within your home. Other examples include security systems (such as Alarms and CCTV cameras), lighting, technology, door locks, blinds, heating and cooling systems, and much more.
Taking the above features into account, the biggest reason people wish to upgrade their homes to be automated is to have complete control and access over their homes, to ensure resources and appliances are conveniently accessed and only used (or switched on) when needed.
The Benefits of Automation for Homes
Convenience & Increased Security
Through a single phone application, you’ll be able to control an ever-growing number of your home’s appliances and equipment from wherever you are. This is not only convenient for lifestyle purposes, but it improves your home’s security through ease-of-access to your home’s alarm, cameras, and lights.
Maintenance & Troubleshooting Support
Receive ongoing maintenance and troubleshooting of any problems you may encounter with your home’s automation system. Your system will send reports to you and flag a notification for any faults it picks up, if there is anything you can’t solve yourselves we’re just a call away.
Prior to installation, you’ll also be able to work closely with us to custom-design your home’s ideal security-based automation system suited to your needs and budget. Smart homes are a little bit like Lego, you can build it as you go, once you have the main system in place, adding to it is easy.
Increased Quality of Life
The elderly, disabled, and those who may otherwise require additional help and care, will be given the advantage of technology to assist with living alone. Simple things like having lights turn on at certain times before it gets dark, or if you get up during the night. Alarm systems can arm themselves at certain times and have the ability to communicate with help if required with a push of an emergency button.
