The Intelligent Home
Whether it’s entertaining guests for a sophisticated dinner party, or if you’re playing host to 20 children for a 5th birthday party, smart home entertainment can allow you to seamlessly regulate volume, music and movies or TV shows throughout various zones of your home.
With one tap on your phone, the temperature of your home regulates so it’s just right, the lights switch on to the perfect setting and your favourite TV program plays while you cook dinner and cosy up for a night in. In summer, you entertain family and friends with a dinner party on the deck, and with one tap the outdoor lights light up the dinner table, the retractable awning engages and music plays softly in the background. The convenience of smart home technology is unbeatable, especially for busy families. While it may sound daunting to setup in the first place, the industry has progressed significantly in the last few years, and now companies can make the setup of home automation exceptionally easy. Let’s talk about some of our favourite features.
Whether it’s entertaining guests for a sophisticated dinner party, or if you’re playing host to 20 children for a 5th birthday party, smart home entertainment can allow you to seamlessly regulate volume, music and movies or TV shows throughout various zones of your home. Planning parties is never easy, but the ability to setup sound and entertainment settings prior to an occasion, can truly be a life saver when there are other distractions happening. In your daily routine, breakfast can be accompanied by up-beat tunes and before bed soothing sounds or meditation tracks can send you to sleep.
The right lighting has the capacity to make or break a mood. Pre-set lighting themes make it so easy to switch from using the lounge room as home office or study space, to a romantic dinner for a special occasion. You can also setup various settings or themes to zone off certain parts of open-living spaces. For example, the kitchen bench can be well-lit for dinner preparation while the TV area is completely dimmed for ideal movie-watching conditions. With one-touch control from your phone or tablet, you’ll never accidentally leave a light on again because it can also be operated from outside the home. Additionally, lighting can be synchronised with curtains and blinds to save energy.

Home access and security
It’s now easy to link your doorbell to your mobile phone, so when it sounds you’re able to speak with whoever is at your door through your phone whether you’re at home or elsewhere. If you want to see what’s going on around your property, security cameras or movement sensors linked to your phone or device allow you to surveillance your home at any time. Doors, gates and garage access can all be automated with options like smart keyless entry and alarms, as well as many other solutions.
These are just a few of the innovative and highly functional features of intelligent homes. Most systems can be extremely easy to setup – and once you’ve experienced the luxury of a smart home lifestyle, you’ll wonder how you ever did without it.
