Smart Technology Minimises The Need For Human Intervention

Technology over the past decade has been continually developed to serve a purpose that makes our lives easier; whether it’s simple things like being able to order the weekly shopping online or paying at the checkout with our smartphones, in the near future, we’ll be able to book a driverless Uber by asking Smart Home Assistant Alexa whilst getting ready. It really is quite astonishing the technological advancements in such a short period of time when you think about it.

Smart home automation means giving remote control to multiple different functions of your home and the joy of it means you can choose which ones depending on your needs. The popular automation options are lighting, heating, sound system, TVs, CCTV cameras, and alarm systems, they all sit on a secure network linked to your smart devices.

Centralise the Media in Your Home and Distribute to Rooms

Automating your music, TV, and movie systems probably won’t save you much money, unlike our Energy Management Systems, but they will save you plenty of time. With the remote control being your smart device, there’s no more having 5 different controls for 5 different media boxes.

Monitor Energy Usage in Your Home to Reduce Energy Bills

Taking power back from the major energy suppliers, you’ll be able to control the environment in your home, making sure you don’t overspend on energy. Being able to monitor usage in real-time and compare previous weeks means there won’t be a penny spent too much than what has been used.

  • Smart home monitoring is the future and it’s available today. Analysing your energy usage in real-time and controlling energy expenditure is high on the agenda of UK homeowners, the rising cost of energy and its increasing demand, your home needs to be smart in order to keep bills as low as possible.

  • Monitor your home’s energy efficiency with smart heating controls, we’re also installers of self-sufficient Renewable Energy Systems like Solar Thermal and Biomass Boilers.

  • More than just mood lighting. Our systems aren’t like traditional lights – the power doesn’t run through the switch – the light fitting is wired directly back to a smart device allowing control of all the lighting from any switch.

  • Need to simulate that your home is occupied? Simply use your smart device to close the curtains and turn the lights on, or turn them off and open them if you happen to have forgotten on a cold winter’s morning.

  • Hot summer’s day and your pet has been indoors for too long? Cool the house down remotely from work or if you’re out and about for too long. Make sure only the bedrooms are cool at night to save on energy bills with zone control.
