Home Automation

It wasn’t long ago that home automation meant an integrated oven-timer or a garage door opener button. Now, you can control your lights, heating and security from your smartphone. 

Many of us have grown up with the idea that more-involved home automation is cutting-edge stuff, with an associated hefty price tag. But so much has changed.

Home automation systems today are becoming standard modern conveniences. As the technology has progressed, prices have come down considerably, making owning your own ‘smart home system’ much more affordable.

A smart home system is the broad term for the collection of things that can respond to your commands or presence. Your smart home might include your outdoor lights, garden irrigation, security system, heating, doors, gates, zoned interior lighting, TV, multi-roomed audio, bedside lamps, intercom… the list goes on. It’s possible to directly control each one of these individually from your phone or smart home system control device.

An especially useful and efficient function of home automation systems is the ability to change how power is used in the home. We can all imagine, on a cold and windy winter night, how nice it would be to be able to turn on the heat pump half an hour before you get home. Or for all the lights to automatically turn off when no one is home. Smart home systems like the renowned Control4 make these functions simple.

Security is naturally on another level with smart home systems. It’s possible to view any home security cameras in real-time from an authorised device – most often your smartphone. Combine this with automated lighting and security, and you can have peace of mind and control over what’s happening at home, no matter where you are in the world.

If you have a need for automation in your home or business, K&M Electrical can provide you with a complete service, from design, installation and upgrades to servicing and support.
