Smart technology is a way of connecting your home through innovative technology to control and give homeowners an “on-demand access to various systems throughout your home. From video, data, telephone, wireless, security, climate, lighting, reticulation, access control and other home lifestyle factors that affect you and your family’s daily life.
With several big players such as Amazon, Google, and Apple now offering smart home products, how do you know which range will suit you and your family?
First things first, ask yourself “what am I trying to achieve from my smart home”. You may find that it is several things, such as remotely accessible security, accessible door locks via your phone or lighting control from your mobile device. Once you have determined what it is you want to achieve from your Smart Home Technology then you can start to build your system around your needs rather than buying a system that offers you all the glamour of a smart home system but doesn’t necessarily meet your requirements.
Secondly, your home wiring and telecommunications backbone will often require consideration when choosing your system. With the majority of smart products requiring some kind of fixed wiring point i.e. data or 240 volts you may be limited to locations and quantity of products by your existing wiring set up.
Lastly, what is your Budget? It is important to know what you are willing to spend on these products and to stick to it, Smart Home Technology can offer you complete control of your home in the palm of your hand but can be very costly if you don’t have a budget and a clear objective on what it is you want to achieve.
