Home Automation

Personalised, high specification smart home automation solutions.

Your whole home controlled with just a few swipes on your phone – that’s the grand promise of the ‘smart’ or connected home. From heating that warms the house when you’re on your way back and adapts according to the weather forecast, to front-door locks, lights and security cameras that you can control and check from afar, it certainly sounds promising.

Home automation and control is automation of the home, housework or household activity. Home control may include centralized control of lighting, HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning), appliances, security locks of gates and doors and other systems, to provide improved convenience, comfort, energy efficiency and security. Home control for the elderly and disabled can provide increased quality of life for persons who might otherwise require caregivers or institutional care.

The popularity of home control has been increasing greatly in recent years due to much higher affordability and simplicity through smartphone and tablet connectivity. The concept of the “Internet of Things” has tied in closely with the popularization of home control.

A home control system integrates electrical devices in a house with each other. The techniques employed in home control include those in building control as well as the control of domestic activities, such as home entertainment systems and the changing the ambiance “scenes” for different events (such as dinners or parties). Through the integration of information technologies with the home environment, systems and appliances are able to communicate in an integrated manner which results in convenience, energy efficiency, and safety benefits.
