The demand for home automation is growing exponentially and so too are the range of smart products available to the consumer. We all like technology and want to be in control of that technology and so it is no wonder that home automation is projected to be a $21.6 billion global industry by 2020, according to Transparency Market Research
New, more sophisticated systems are becoming available almost daily and existing systems are becoming more out dated just as quickly. There are three new affordable voice controlled systems becoming available right now!
When an industry is increasing and changing with such speed, it is a challenge for the average consumer to keep up with new developments and sort through the growing offerings of products.
This is where our company can help you.
We have the up-to-date knowledge to help you decide what features you need (or want) and just as importantly features that you don’t really need or that may become problematic.
New technology is great, but it has to be beneficial and add value to your home and not become a frustration. For example, who wants to reach for a cell phone to turn a light on when a standard light switch would be much more convenient.
The integration of technology and services within a 21st century home should provide for a better quality of life, enhance your family’s safety and security, offer superior functionality and of course add value to your home.
Home automation integration is much more than the amalgamation of various technologies and their control within the home. Connecting standalone systems or devices together and distributing AV services is only the beginning!
Home automation should, as its name suggest, facilitate learning so that your home gets to “know” your family’s routines.
There are five levels of home automation, the first three of which are described by automation companies as their vision of “smart homes”, but only the last two are in fact truly “smart”.
- Homes which contain intelligent objects – These are homes containing single, stand-alone objects or devices which function in an intelligent manner.
- Homes which contain intelligent, communicating objects – These homes contain appliances, objects and devices which function intelligently in their own right and which also exchange information between one another to increase functionality.
- Connected homes – These homes have internal and external networks allowing interactive and remote control of systems, as well as access to services and information, both within and beyond the home.
- Learning homes – Patterns of activity in the home are recorded and the accumulated data used to anticipate the occupant’s needs and to control the technology accordingly.
- Attentive homes – The activity and location of people and objects within the home is constantly registered and this information is used to control technology in anticipation of the occupants’ needs.
We can explain the broad range of offerings in each of the above five categories to progress a solution applicable to your needs.
