Optimise your living space with home automation technology

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.

How to make the switch to home automation

If setting up a home automation system sounds complicated, you’ll be relieved to know it doesn’t have to be! You might be wondering how difficult it is to set up home automation from your existing electrical layout. But solutions such as the Clipsal Wiser Smart Home Solution are surprisingly easy to switch to. You’ll just need to convert to iconic switch plates, which are easy to install. Our team of electrical experts can also help.

Vaccaro was the original electrical installer of my home. Their workmanship and materials were of excellent quality. They were extremely helpful, efficient and friendly whenever I asked for help. My special regards to Cameron for responding to my after-sales requests promptly and Robert for helping me resolve some technical issues and enhancing my understanding of the wiring system design.

Vaccaro was also the original air-conditioning installer of my home. Sonya and her teams were very polite and attentive and provided speedy responses to servicing requests. The technicians are well trained and equipped and as a result the refrigerant leak was fixed in no time. They also made good the controls and carried out air balancing.


I was a little nervous doing my electrical appointment on my own as my partner was unavailable. Janae (Electrical Design Consultant) was friendly, helpful and had a clear understanding of everything, making the electrical appointment stress-free. Janae was quick with responding to any enquiries or emails. I was very happy with her service & would highly recommend.


Richard was very reliable, very responsive, and very polite. He also took special care to make sure I was happy with the service provided. Thank you very much, highly recommended.

Happy to give a big thumbs up and thank you to Richard in the sales team and the guys who replaced our 22 year old full ducted system in our double storey home, with a new Daikin 20kw system. Only installed one day and already appreciate how quiet the unit is. Despite the rain they were through the job in a few hours and were completely professional, very happy to recommend this company.


Thank you, Richard, Jimmy, and the rest of the Vaccaro team, for providing such timely and professional service, installing a split air conditioning system in my home today. Jimmy’s level of awareness to be respectful of the peace and cleanliness of the property during the installation was greatly appreciated. My apartment feels lovely and toasty – I may never leave!
