Smart Home Devices
What Is A Smart Home?
In short a smart home is a home that's filled with internet connected devices such as smart bulbs, heating thermostats and smart speakers.
The sole purpose of a smart home is to make your life easier, safer and more convenient.
It can be as simple as a smart bulb in the porch light that turns itself on and off automatically, or for more advanced users it could be a fully connected and automated home with several devices linked together to automate daily tasks.
Smart homes can save you money, make life easier, improve your safety and security and upgrade your entertainment.
Smart Home Benefits
Scenes: Create easy one-touch scenes that set your room, or even your whole home, to a preset mode. For instance when you leave the house you can have an “all off” scene that turns off all lights and smart plugs ensuring you don’t leave anything on. You can also have an “all on” mode to light the home in the middle of the night if you hear a noise! Scenes are also perfect for setting the mood in rooms with multiple lighting circuits, at the touch of a button you can turn off your downlights, set the lamp to 50% and set the TV lights to blue ready for the movie.
Automations: Smart homes should work for you. With smart lighting, heating and smart plugs you can easily create daily and weekly timers to automate your lifestyle. For instance you can easily replace your porch light bulb for a smart bulb and create an automation that turns the light on every day at dusk and turns it off at midnight. Automations are easy to create and have thousands of useful scenarios.
Timers: Set timers that will automatically turn a light or appliance off after a preset time. Perfect for kids bedrooms, dim the lights and automatically turn off after 30 minutes. Just enough time for your little ones to get to sleep!
Voice Control: Let your home assistant do the hard work for you. Almost all smart home devices are now voice enabled via Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and a growing range of Apple Homekit devices. Simply ask Alexa to turn your lights on, adjust your heating or show your front doorbell camera on your Echo device.
