Benefits of a Smart Home
Incorporate Smart Home technology into your new home
If the phrase ‘smart home’ conjures up images of costly investments and futuristic living spaces (e.g. talking kitchen devices, shiny steel walls and self-cleaning appliances), think again: the modern smart home is a cost-effective, safe and energy-efficient living space that enables you to easily control its functions. Installing smart-home technology into new builds is ideal because they are fitted with modern, energy-efficient and regulation-compliant systems and appliances, such as boilers, electrical wiring, insulation, and double-glazed windows and doors – all of which integrate perfectly with digital smart-home systems.
Build up your smart home over time
The great thing about smart-home technology is that you can install as much or as little as you like, and still see huge benefits. You could keep it as simple as installing smart thermostats to remotely manage your central heating, or as innovative as connecting every appliance in the home to a smart-home system. You can slowly build up your smart home over time, or implement an entire suite of solutions in one go: whatever works for you. The aim of a smart home is to make your life easier, more affordable and more energy-efficient.
Create a home that works around you
Smart-home technology is designed to harmonise your property with your needs as a homeowner, and make your living space as comfortable as possible at all times. This means adapting your lighting to the perfect brightness (based on current light levels, the activity you’re doing and your general preferences) and keeping the property at a pleasant temperature (with remote-controlled heating and air conditioning) when you’re at home.
Keep your property secure
Smart-home technology can integrate with your existing security solutions to ensure that you, your family and your possessions are properly protected. If you need to leave your house empty for a few days, then smart lighting can be easily programmed to mimic your daily routine so that it looks as though someone’s home. You can also link your silent alarm or motion-sensor CCTV to your smartphone, so that you receive a notification if a potential intruder is detected. CCTV footage can even be transmitted live through your mobile!
Reduce your energy bills
Being able to control your heating and lighting from an app on your smartphone is all about preventing energy from being wasted in the home, and subsequently lowering your energy bills. With smart thermostats like Hive and Nest, you can simply go about your daily routine (without programming your heating) and they will automatically learn what temperature you like your home to be at particular times of the day.
