Why Home Automation?
Manage your environment the easy way by letting your home do the thinking. No matter what else holds you up in life (traffic, work deadlines, kid’s activities) you can always rely on a warm welcome home. Automating your security, heating, lighting and media systems adds convenience and simplicity to life – as well as offering significant energy savings. iPower is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to smart home technology.
Convenience & Simplicity
Imagine a world where all the routine thinking is done for you. Integrating every day chores into ‘scenes’ like Good Morning, Leaving Home, Arriving Home, Goodnight and Holiday means that one touch of a button can simultaneously adjust the settings on heating, lighting, security systems and more.
When you set the alarm before leaving home in the morning, your heating can be set to automatically switch off and household lights to go out. Disarming the security system when you arrive home at night can trigger the garage and outside lights to switch on (depending on time of day). Inside the house, hallway and kitchen lights come on, heating systems start up and you can even set the sound system to play your favourite music to welcome you home.
By arranging your heating, lighting, security and media systems into scenes, one touch of a button can create exactly the right environment – whether you’re watching a movie, entertaining or heading for bed.
Sensors can be used to open and close blinds or louvres according to daylight levels and can trigger lights to be switched on and off in the high use areas of your home, while you retain the flexibility of switching to manual control at any time. That’s smart home technology.
You no longer need multiple remote control units for TV, DVD, Sky, music, alarm system – all your household functions can be set through one simple remote control panel, set up to meet your needs, and this same control system is also available on your smart phone and iPad / tablet.
An average household wastes 30% more energy than an efficient one – at a time when the typical family power bill has risen by 78% in less than a decade – energy saving is no longer just for the greenies. The cost of simply forgetting to turn off your bathroom light and towel rail can really add up over time.
Automating your heating and lighting systems allows you to hand over the routine chores to a smart system and remove the cost of human error. And if you’re running late, save energy by adjusting the pre-set start time from your Smartphone – all at the touch of a button.
