Smart Homes are all the rage these days.
Controlling your entire home with your smart phone or tablet is indeed very handy. Some would say it’s for the lazy, but having the ability to close all the blinds and turn off the lights with one touch of a button without having to get off the couch has its benefits.
So what can you do with a Smart Home? Well as I just mentioned you can connect all your blinds to roll up and down, you can also connect all your lights so you can effectively control each individual light or have a master on/off, great for when you are leaving in the morning and then returning at night. You can also connect your home entertainment systems, such as TV, DVD player, audio system etc. Basically everything that has power to it you can control.
The topic of security always comes to mind when talking about Smart Homes, and how secure are they. Can someone hack into the system and take over my home? This is why choosing a reputable company to install and maintain the system is the best approach, who take security seriously and continually update their software to avoid and eliminate any flaws in their systems.
Do you have to have everything connected to the internet? No, you definitely do not. We have used LED strips and lights that use Bluetooth rather than wi-fi and found them to be a lot of fun as they often come with multiple colours. Giving you the ability to change the mood depending on the occasion. You can even sync them to your smart TV so that the colour in the room is responsive to what your watching. The ability to dim the lights via your phone is also a huge benefit.
