Being on the cutting edge of technology and design means that we are often asked what Smart-Homes or Home automation actually involves (and if there is any difference between the two). Smart-Home technology, or Home automation, is the process of combining multiple different aspects of your home devices, and making them easier and more intuitive to control. That means, when we’re working on homes in London, we’re making sure that your heating, cooling, lighting, entertainment and security devices are all controllable through the use of a single remote, or through your phone or tablet.
It isn’t only a matter of easy interaction with your everyday devices, however, it’s also about the ability to remotely control them. If you’re heading home from an evening dinner, Smart-Home technology allows you to turn on all of your lights as you walk towards your home. It also means you can remotely check your security cameras, or see who has used the front door (letting you know your children are back home safe).
Even more so than this, and suggested particularly by the phrase Home automation, many of our systems are intelligent – which means they can learn your day to day habits. With our heating example, that means your heating system has learned when you are usually home, and at what temperature you are the most comfortable. It senses the outside temperatures and then turns itself to the right setting, in order to maximise your comfort, minimise your need to check on it, whilst using the minimal amount of energy.
In other words, Smart-Home or Home automation technologies are simply about making life easier, safer, more enjoyable and more energy efficient.
The array of devices that can be integrated into a smart home solution is now bigger than ever, and Communitec AV are at the forefront of pioneering these solutions operating in all areas of London – so why not get in touch and talk to us about your home automation package today?
