What is a Home Automation System?

A home automation system allows you to control and automate a range of features and appliances around the home using electronic technology. Also known as smart home automation or house automation, this typically involves linking together the controls for lighting, sound, audio visual and other household appliances into one, integrated software platform.

Automated home systems have physical control points installed within the home (for manual control), and are also accessible via the internet, meaning you can undertake a variety of day-to-day tasks, such as adjusting your thermostat or switching on your lights, remotely from your smartphone or tablet device.

Intelligent security for your lifestyle

How can security and home automation systems work together?

We are able to seamlessly integrate a range of security systems with your home automation system, allowing you to have even more control over the security of your property and family. From being able to remotely set your alarm systems, to watching CCTV footage from any of your cameras on your phone, an automated home system can put security at your fingertips.

Intelligent home systems for proactive security

Perhaps you have a swimming pool and want to be alerted if there are any signs of leaking water? You may want to check that your children have arrived home from school at the expected time?

A wireless home automation system (using WIFI home automation) gives you the ability to receive notifications as soon as anything troublesome is detected, or if there are changes to the expected daily routine.
