But what do we mean by Smart home automation (or office automation)?

Home automation is when different technologies and systems are integrated together into a single control system. This control system can then automatically control another without you explicitly having to request every action... Let's paint you a few scenarios - scroll down!

Scenario 1

Movie Night with the family

You're in the home cinema room with your family watching a movie and the doorbell rings. You pause your movie using your home control app on your device (phone or tablet), this automatically triggers the navigation lights. You answer the door bell using the video feed on your smartphone to see who’s at the door and speak to them remotely. Then when you press play the lights automatically fade off as you enjoy the rest of the movie.

Scenario 2

Environmental Control

It's 10am and you've programmed the blinds to automatically open at that time everyday. You notice It's a nice sunny day so you open a window in the bedroom to let in some air. The system automatically turns down the heating in the room to save wasting energy.

Scenario 3

On Holiday - or stuck at the airport...

Imagine being stuck in the airport, or having a flight cancelled or delayed, and worry begins to enter your mind; Did I remember to arm the house’s security system? Did I leave the garage door open? What if I come home next week to discover that the heater has been blaring the entire time? With the Smart Home app on your phone you are able to access all of these systems and make sure they are turned off. Better yet, set the lighting to switch on for a time period in the evening and the blinds to open in the mornings to make it seem like someone is present in the house...this will add to your home security and deter unwanted visitors.

What Can be automated?

A home automation system is an all in one set up that brings elements of domestic security into one control app. For instance, an integrated home security system can include, but is not limited to; Lighting control, door entry systems, fitted alarm systems, CCTV, multi-room audio and video and window blinds – all of which can be controlled from a single app on your chosen device from wherever you are.

We don’t add to your confusing technology. On the contrary, we make sure that our installations provide you with a control system that is more simple and effective to use than ever before.
