Smart home automation is the integration of electronic systems installed in your home to create a highly personalised smart living experience. With our home automation partner of choice, Control4, your family can operate nearly every device and system in the house in ways that are both easy and fun to use.
What is ‘home automation’ and how can it benefit my home?
However far along you are on your path to having your very own smart home, you will have no doubt thought about the technology you need to tie it all together. So, we thought we would give you a sneak peek inside our recently completed Smart Home experience centre in Kent.
Here you can experience all the elements that Smart Home Technology and the latest Audio Visual systems offer from Lutron, Control4, Artcoustic, Kaleidescape and Sony. We have everything you need in a modern family home, from Wi-Fi systems to motorised blinds and curtain tracks to garden speakers and heating control.
An automated home scenario can consist of lighting, audio visual, window treatments, garage doors, CCTV, intruder alarms and electric gates and when connected they improve your lifestyle, enhance comfort, and add convenience and accessibility. You can also monitor and operate any element of our system from at home from your back pocket wherever you may be via your mobile device.
Motorised shading not only helps reduce excess glare and heat gain, but you can also raise and lower automatically at a set time of the day even when you’re away. This is what you can achieve with motorised blinds and electric curtain tracks when combined with smart home automation, as well as enhancing room aesthetics with our wide selection of materials.
You will be in total control with our user interface combining your underfloor heating and air conditioning system. We can integrate with existing heating and cooling thermostats with minimal disruption, or start from scratch and install discrete air sensors, ensuring sure the clean lines of the room are never compromised. Our centralised system means control of all of your heating and cooling is simplified into simple schedules available at your fingertips on your smartphone or the nearest touchscreen.
The most important aspect of your home, so we work hard to make make sure all of the elements work together to form one integrated experience with your smart home automation system, to make things as stress-free as possible. Intercoms, CCTV surveillance, intruder alarms, gate and door access can all work as individual systems, but by combining these with the intelligence of a smart home system, the optimum standard of home security and monitoring is achieved. We can trigger notifications, whole-home scenes and more, in providing a 24/7 service that offers the utmost protection.
Having worked with Control4 since 2005, we have more than 250 systems in operation. We are the first Diamond Pinnacle dealer and certified showroom in the UK. This makes us the leading Control4 CEDIA integrator in the South East.
The quality of the work was to a high standard and the project was completed in the expected time. This was definitely an investment worth making and I would certainly recommend New Wave in the same positive way they were recommended to me.
