Impressive technological advancements teamed with the tiresome hustle and bustle of everyday life, has meant our cars, phones, watches, appliances and even our houses are becoming smarter and smarter.

What Is a Smart Home System?
Smart home technology allows for the control of many devices to be integrated in one system, ensuring your home can run seamlessly.
Smart home systems allow users to automate specific features of their household, like security, lighting, air conditioning, sprinklers, TV’s, and control these through a mobile device or tablet.
To have these systems working efficiently, smart home systems incorporate technology such a microprocessors, sensors, and software and allows them to run autonomously.
Why Should You Create a Smart Home
A fundamental reason to enquire about and invest in smart home systems is to personalise the various aspects of your home, with the ability to remotely access your smart objects at any time.
Imagine opening an app before you get home and being able to turn on the air conditioning or heating, boiling the water for a tea or turning on your lights before you enter the house. You arrive at your front door and rather than fumbling your keys and shopping, you use your keyless touchscreen to open the front door.
There are so many innovative appliances and products being created to make our homes smarter and more efficient, it pays off to have all of these run in sync seamlessly.
Reduce Electricity Bills & Your Environmental Impact
How many times have you left the house, made it all the way to work and realised you left the heating or air-conditioning on, or the lights in your bedroom, or the TV?
With a Smart Home, a few touches of an app will turn off your appliances, lights and air conditioning without any worries! Your home automation system can ensure your appliances are working optimally and are only on when they are being used.
Not only will this improve the environmental impact of your home, but it will reduce your electricity bills in the long run.
In a rush, we can leave appliances on that can result in accidents. Hair straighteners and stoves are common appliances that are left on accidentally, that may result in burns to young children or pets, or even result in a house fire!
With the ability to control your appliances from afar at your fingertips, accidents like this can be avoided and you can have peace of mind no matter where you are.
24/7 Home Monitoring
Smart home monitoring systems are a great tool for people who want to keep an eye on their home when they are at work, on holiday or just out and about. As a homeowner using the smart home technology, you can remotely access your home security cameras and intercom from your smart device at any time.
You also have the peace of mind knowing that if your home alarm is set off, your device will automatically alert you of the intruders. This means you can call the police without delay and minimise the damage or theft from your property. Or if you are a Castle Security customer, our alarm monitoring in Perth can pick up the alert and automatically contact police after multiple alarms have been detected.
Being able to respond to your intercom also means that your online shopping deliveries, or parcels from family and friends, are not just left unattended – you can talk to the delivery company and inform them of a safe place to leave the parcel, or instruct them to leave it at your local Post Office.
Planning For Your New Home
If you’re building a new home, it’s the perfect time to think about implementing home automation systems, including home security cameras and smart appliances.
Something to keep in mind is that a good WiFi router with a strong signal across your entire property is essential to seamless integration, continued automation and reliable remote access. It is optimal to have Ethernet networking cable installed to at least one data point in every room of your house.
By planning what you want, specifying the house measurements, fittings and fixtures, you can present your plans to a Castle Security and we can design a system that is a perfect fit for you and your home.
