Smart Home Technology

Smart Home Technology article worth a read

Smart home technology has come on leaps and bounds over the past few years, and more and more self builders and renovators are finding ways of incorporating this tech into their everyday lives and new home’s infrastructure.

A decade ago, you might have dismissed the concept of a smart home with fully integrated heating, lighting, security and audio visual as a fad. A well-designed and seamlessly integrated automation system, though, now has the potential to transform the way you interact with your property.

Smart home technology can broadly be divided into two categories – DIY smart home products purchased off-the-shelf and set up by the end user, and fully integrated (usually hard-wired) setups that require professional installation. Every house has at least a basic level of heating, lighting and security.  Smart home tech, however, can give you maximum control over how the building runs – boosting efficiency and saving you money in the long-term.

Getting it right is all about integrating devices that will change how you interact with your property.

From the key considerations to smart heating and whole-house automation, here we’re investigating how you can use smart home technology to design, build and specify a smart setup that works for you.
