Energy management / Smart home control
Technology is changing fast yet most modern homes still rely on energy control with simple timers and sensors, these are quite often complex and hidden in cupboards and switch boards, because of their location and sometimes number they become a hassle and become forgotten about.
A smart home offers additional control over conventional wiring, meaning you can considerably decrease the energy your home uses by scheduling key appliances like hot water cylinders, instant or under-bench water heaters, floor heating, heated towel rails, ventilation systems, under tile heating and other heating appliances like heat pumps. Some systems offer modes that turn all standby items like TV’s, audio equipment and chargers off when you’re not at home. This mode can also be automated when connected to an alarm.
Should you decide to invest in solar power you will require a simple and effective control over your loads and ideally schedule them to operate during the day to maximize the power you generate.
As most Smart home systems can be controlled remotely with smart phone apps you can increase your security by providing remote control of your alarm, garage doors, automatic gate, or front door, these features are great for providing access to tradesmen, cleaners, family and friends without giving away alarm codes and keys. Cameras are now more affordable meaning you can integrate them with your smart home. Scheduling of lighting to come on and off automatically can also increase your security and increase the comfort level in your home.
