What is an Intelligent Home?
An intelligent home is one that is specifically designed to allow you to control virtually all aspects of your home environment from audio /video and security to lighting and climate from any location anywhere. Instead of multiple independent systems and multiple remotes, all devices are controlled through user-friendly touchscreens or remotes.
Through the integration of technology with the home environment, systems and appliances are able to communicate in a manner which results in convenience, energy efficiency, and safety benefits. Simply put home automation is a single system that gives you the ability to control anything electrical in your residence including home lighting, security, climate, music, TV, curtains and blinds and even your irrigation system.
Using a wide range of controllers from wall switches to iPads or in wall touch screens your smart home is one that enhances your lifestyle while providing comfort, security savings and convenience.
Our home automation solutions are tailor designed for you and are simplistic to use giving you more time to do the things you enjoy. Start small by automating just your family room or home theatre and simply add later or as required.
Product choice is crucial and this is why we work only with the world’s leading brands, who are backed up by a strong record of support, training and advice. This will also ensure you have access to the latest technology.
Smart Living equips property owners with remote access to their home or business from anywhere in the world. Take control for your own peace of mind: From your mobile phone you will be able to control heating, sound and lighting, water plants and feed family pets. Best of all you’ll be able to see who is outside your front gate or door. Our systems will let you know the kids are home safely, and alert you when they’re running late!
Integration made simple
Smart Living systems are simple to learn and use. Delivering much more than just lighting and home audio, Smart Living integrate lifestyle comforts, create peace of mind and helps manage your home energy use.
At the push of a button your smart home turns the heating and lighting into ‘night mode’ (close gates, pull blinds and arm your security system) allowing your family to sleep comfortably and peacefully. With the added benefit of fire protection, should smoke be detected, your system will turn on all the lights and provide a lit escape path while unlocking all the doors and signalling the appropriate response services.
Let Smart Living take care of the entire project for you – from initial consultation, right through to developing ideas, finalising the design and selecting the perfect products for your situation.
