How Home Automation Can Simplify Your Life

Smart home technology is changing the way Queenslanders control the comfort, convenience and security in their homes. The right smart home automation will integrate your lights, air conditioning, garage door, security system and even your appliances, so you can make the most of your home with hardly any effort.

1. Home automation provides convenience

Imagine yourself coming home from work, it’s been a long, hot and humid day. When you are within 100 metres of your home, the air conditioner automatically turns on, so you open the front door and step inside a nice cool home. In addition to air conditioning, you can also:

  • Set your fans and electric blinds
  • Turn off/on lights when you’re already lying in bed
  • Preheat the oven before you come home
  • Control your sprinkler system

2. Integrate your home security systems

Installing security cameras and programmable locks around your house is a big step to protect your family and home from intruders. You can check the cameras with your mobile device – if you’re at work or even on holiday overseas. With integrated motion sensors, new security cameras will instantly send an alert to your phone when there is an intruder, so you can remotely sound an alarm, or even alert the intruder that you are recording them via an inbuilt microphone (on select cameras).

3. Automate your entertainment and sound systems

Voice control gives you the option to destress, as you don’t have to stop what you’re doing, you simply talk to the device to do things for you.

  • Structure your children’s screen time
  • Play music, even from speakers that are in different rooms
  • Ask the device to play the news when you’re taking a bath
