Home automation draws all the elements of your home together, creating a seamless living experience. Whether pre-programmed or at the push of a button, you can create specific scenes in your home that set the ambience you require – from turning the heating up and switching the lights for a warm welcome home when you return from work to tailoring a relaxed atmosphere with mood lighting and music for a dinner party.
Here at New Wave AV, our smart home specialists can automate the traditional manual products at your property and integrate them into a whole-home system, enabling you to manage and control everything from lighting and heating to outdoor gates and sprinklers through one intuitive interface.
We use Control4 home automation to bring all the aspects of your home together. With interfaces placed throughout your property and mobile apps, you can control and monitor everything – even when you’re away from home.
A smart home setup is about more than simple convenience. It’s also about security and peace of mind while you’re away from home. Our home automation systems learn about you and your habits to create a Mockupancy – an occupancy simulation – making it seem as if you’re home when you’re not. This protects your home and creates a deterrent for burglars, perfect for holidays and late nights out.
Our home automation installers can custom program everything from lights and blinds to audio visual equipment, so that it looks like you’re home watching TV or moving about the house. We can even link your security system so that when the system is armed it automatically plays back a simulation based on your regular habits. Plus, with a connected mobile device, you can monitor your home at any time while you’re away.
Smart homes can be set up to create the exact atmosphere you require at various times of the day. Timers are useful for setting up your home when you know certain things will be happening. For example, if you need to get up at 6am each morning for work, timed programming can raise your blinds and turn on your favourite radio station to get you up. You can also set the heating to a specific temperature so that you don’t have to climb out of a warm bed into a chilly morning.
Motion and light sensors are the eyes and ears of your automated home. They’re simple devices, yet they bring home automation to life, ensuring you’re always comfortable. Light sensors will monitor the daylight levels in your home, turning indoor lighting on and off, or dimming as appropriate so you always benefit from optimal light levels, whether you’re working, watching TV or making dinner.
Motion sensors, meanwhile, can detect whether there’s anyone in the room and turn off lights, turn down heating, and more when the space is vacant. This not only creates a convenient experience, it also helps you to conserve energy. Ensuring all aspects of your home is truly automated.
