What is a Connected Home and How Does It Work?

Understanding Connected Homes: Embracing Smart Living

You may have a solid understanding of what a "connected home" or "smart home” is. However, it’s unlikely to understand the full potential of connected homes without living in one. At EAV, our aim is to overcome that by outlining the cutting-edge technologies we offer.

What is a Connected Home?

A connected home refers to a residence equipped with home automation systems. Home automation involves advanced technologies that provide you with complete control over your living environment. By utilising a smart electronic device and a dedicated application such as Control4, you can conveniently manage various aspects of your connected home from anywhere.

Demystifying Home Automation

Home automation encompasses a range of cutting-edge technologies designed to enhance comfort and convenience in your home or office. It empowers you to exert greater control over key elements such as lighting, temperature, ambience and security. These features can be adjusted according to your preferences and managed effortlessly from a connected device. This is what transforms a regular home into a connected home.

The Advantages of Home Automation

Home automation is categorised into various areas, including:

  • Home Security
  • Audio Visual Systems
  • Heating and Cooling Control
  • Lighting

You have the freedom to customise your connected home based on your preferences and requirements. For instance, if you prioritise home security, you can install smart locks that automatically secure your house when you leave, residential access control and alarms.

Discover the Benefits of a Connected Home

You may be familiar with popular products like Google Home and Amazon Alexa, which form part of the home automation ecosystem. However, they only represent a fraction of what home automation can offer. Using Control4, manage the locks on your doors remotely, schedule the lighting and heating to come on before you return from work, play two different albums in opposing corners of the house and even draw your blinds from the warmth and comfort of your bed.

Futureproof Your Home with a Connected Home

The possibilities offered by a connected home are vast. With seamless integration and intelligent automation, you can create an environment that caters to your unique preferences and transforms your daily routine. Step into the realm of smart living and experience the countless benefits of a connected home. It's time to make your life easier, more efficient, and above all, more enjoyable with EAV.
