HOME AUTOMATION SYSTEMS
Home automation is a friendly way to control and integrate your home’s entire electrical, lighting, security and audio-visual systems – and many other smart home systems. With the price of electricity going up, home automation is another way you can reduce, monitor and take control of the amount of energy being used in your home or office. Home automation systems provide a simple way to control the electrical usage in your home, from dimming the lights to turning on and off the pool heating. Another major benefit of a home automation system is that you have the ability to change how your system is controlled at any time with a simple update of the programming. This is a fantastic feature especially for those who are building double brick or 2-3 storey houses where getting new cabling in is expensive and prohibitive.

CUSTOM LIGHTING CONTROL SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR HOME AUTOMATION SYSTEM

Lighting is always one of the biggest parts of a home automation system. A lighting automation system can not only create great lighting effects and moods, it can also save you money on running cost. Lighting automation systems can also integrate with iPads and smart tablet technologies, giving control of your home at your finger tips. Being able to sit down and set the lighting mood can be a quick and simple process. You can also integrate your lighting with internal and external sensors. People are familiar with sensors turning lights on but what about turn lights off? Imagine having a living room where the lights were turned on but no one was in the room. To save power you can use a sensor to detect if anyone is in the room and if not, turn the lights off. There are many simple and advanced ways to control your light automation system that not only make it convenient but save you money and give longevity to your electrical system.
