The integration of all electronic services in your home so they talk to each other and work together

Home Automation & Control

What is smart home technology? This question is becoming more relevant every day as the need for connected home services becomes more prevalent.

A smart home is one where most, if not all, electronic devices can communicate with one another and can understand each other.  Smart home technology dumbs all the complicated stuff and provides you with a single, easy to use interface which enables you to interact with all these electronic services in a simple and convenient fashion.

A smart home or home automation system is designed to seamlessly integrate your sound, security, lighting and comfort services to provide convenience, safety and energy efficiency.

Simpletech specialise in designing, installing and programming custom smart home systems to meet your every requirement.

Smart Home Control

home_icon1 light greyHome automation simplifies your life. It brings out the value in all the electronic systems in your home that you don’t feel like using because they’re too ‘complicated’. Too often we’re told by clients: “We have an alarm and we have a surround sound, but we never use them because it’s such a mission.”

Home automation is a layer of control that talks to all your electronics and processes complicated actions for you.

When you want to watch a movie, simply press:
Watch, Movies and the automation system will automatically turn on your TV, turn on the sound, select your media player as a source and dim the lights. All with the click of a button.

User Interfaces & Remote Access

One of the biggest advantages of a home automation system is the simplified interface that you use to control everything in your home.

While watching TV, say goodbye to a cluttered coffee table filled with remote controls for the TV, DSTV, amplifier, BluRay player, Apple TV and probably a few remotes which aren’t even used anymore. Replace all of these with a single remote control that is programmed to do exactly what you want, when you want it. 

When interacting with the sound through your home, checking the CCTV cameras, answering the doorbell or setting the alarm, gone are the days with 5 different screens or keypads on the wall. One sleek and elegant touch screen, wall mounted or portable, can be a point of call for everything. 

To top if off, extend the power and convenience of the automation system to your mobile devices to enjoy comfort from your bed, by the pool or even when you’re on holiday overseas. 

The Internet of Things

The internet of things is the intelligence and interconnectedness of electronic devices or ‘things’ in your home that enables them to communicate with one another and make decisions based on the status of itself or other devices. As each day goes by, more and more everyday electronic appliances are being manufactured with the intention of being incorporated into the internet of things. This includes door locks, baby monitors, kettles.. everything.

Home automation and the internet of things go hand in hand. As manufacturers start catering for the industry more and incorporate communication platforms to other devices, so increases the base of equipment available to be built into a home automation system. The day that you can control your home like the Jetson’s isn’t something to joke about anymore. It’s already possible to a degree, and it’s getting better every day.

If this if something you’re interested in exploring, give us a call and we’d be more than happy to chat. Our day-in and day-out passion is the design and implementation of incredible technology in a beautiful way, ensuring that it does what it needs but stays as invisible as possible.
