5 Things You Didn't Know You Can Do With A Smart Home

Smart homes are more integrated, more efficient and more revolutionary than ever, changing how we interact and live within our homes. In Auckland, EAV is leading the way by delivering uncomplicated and elegant solutions to homeowners who want to transform their houses into a smart home. As more people embrace the convenience and comfort that a smart home provides, we list 5 things you may not know you can achieve with a smart home to make your life easier.

Smart Locks and Security

Do you still use a lock and a key to keep intruders out of your home? Allow our smart home security solutions to protect it instead. With smart locks, you can use keypads or fingerprint scanners to do away with keys and make your home secure. Did you know you can lock and unlock your doors remotely using your smartphone or tablet? You can also install smart cameras to monitor your home from anywhere in the world. Some cameras come with features like motion detection and facial recognition, which can alert you if someone enters your home.

Monitor Your Energy Usage

Did you know that with a smart home, you can monitor your energy usage in real time? Smart metres allow you to see how much energy you are using and how much it is costing you, giving you the chance to closely manage your energy consumption and save money on your bills. You can also set energy-saving rules to help. This feature is particularly useful in Auckland where energy prices can be high.

Set up Smart Lighting

Smart lighting is one of the most popular features of a smart home. Did you know you can set up lighting scenes to suit different occasions, such as movie nights, dinner parties, or reading time? You can also control your lights remotely using your smartphone or voice assistants like Alexa or Google Home. Smart lighting not only adds convenience but also enhances the ambience of your home at different times of day.

Connect Your Smart Home Devices

Did you know one of the best things about smart homes is that you can connect all your devices to one platform? Imagine that. It means you can control all your smart devices from a single app or control screen. For example, you can control your smart lighting, thermostat, security cameras, and other devices from your smartphone or tablet. Open your blinds, turn the light on from bed and play music throughout your home.

Voice Control

With a smart home, you can control your home entertainment systems, lights and everything else using your voice. You can set up your TV, audio system and other devices to follow voice commands, such as changing the channel or adjusting the volume. 

With the help of Control4 technology, exclusive to EAV, you can benefit from making life that little bit easier with the benefits above. Get in touch with us today to find out more.
