Optimise your living space with home automation technology
Imagine if you could preheat the oven before you start your drive home, so it’s ready to cook your dinner as soon as you walk in the door. Or what if you could control lighting and electrical appliances after you’ve left the house? No more worrying that you’ve left that iron on, or the lights in your bedroom. And on those cold winter nights, what if you could tell your house to reach a certain temperature to greet you with warmth when you get home? Well with home automation, you can.
Home automation is steadily growing in popularity, as people get more comfortable with using smart technology in their homes. From a simple smart speaker to fully integrated home automation systems which help you control lighting, temperature, security, and more, home automation technology can help you optimise your energy usage and the comfort of your living space.
What are the advantages of home automation?
There are many ways home automation systems can help make your everyday life a little easier. Having home automation systems set up can:
- Maximise security with motion detectors, surveillance cameras, automated door locks
- Alert you to security breaches in real time when you’re away from home
- Allow you to control lighting, climate, and appliances from your mobile device
- Optimise temperature control
- Create seamless living experiences with automation between devices
- Cut energy costs
- Increase the value of your home
- Give you peace of mind and make your house look lived in when you go away
- Save you time and free up head space!
Home automation also allows you to access data that can help you make the most of your time. For example, you’ll be able to see exactly how many hours you spend watching TV or using certain appliances. Knowing these figures can help you form healthier habits, or even save a bit of cash in your budget.
How do home automation systems work?
Most home automation systems have a central location or dashboard where everything can be adjusted and controlled. For example, Clipsal Wiser Smart Home Solution allows you to control everything from one central dashboard on your smartphone. By downloading just one app, you can control blinds, lighting, temperature, appliances, and more. Some systems can also be integrated into your smart speaker, so you can ask Alexa or Google Home to take the reins.
