What is a Smart Home?

Confused by all this talk of smart home or home automation? Read on to find out more about smart home products and this new way of living.


Simply put, a smart home refers to various electrical products and appliances that can be controlled remotely from one’s smartphone, computer or even voice control! Some common smart home products that you may already be familiar with include home security cameras or more smart downlights.


Why would I want a Smart Home?

The world is your oyster when it comes to smartifying your home and creating the perfect smart home setup. Think remote controlled lights and dimmer switches, portable cameras with night vision capabilities and a powerboard that can be individually controlled from your phone. While some products will require installation by a licensed electrician, many others can be achieved on a DIY basis!

From the classic floodlight to high tech night vision cameras, introducing smart home products can keep you at peace the next time you plan a trip away or simply step out for a coffee.

Savings

Making your home a smart one can be affordable, quick and as simple as a DIY weekend project! Become an energy aficionado too with timers and automations to control usage.  

Functionality

Every day tasks that will leave you second-guessing are now solved with the ease and simplicity of smart home features. Consider remotely opening your garage door for big deliveries; and that's just the beginning.
