Once the domain of the super-rich, home automation has now advanced to the point where your average suburban home can possess a basic system, at an affordable price. In basic terms, it is the ability to automate household functions such as security, lighting and HVAC (heating, ventilation and air-conditioning).
At Elecorp we can advise, design and install a home automation project that is limited to your imagination. Maybe you have a dedicated home theatre room? Wouldn’t it be nice to sit in your favourite recliner and with the press of a button the blinds gently close, the lights dim, and your favourite movie begins to roll?
Or maybe you’d like an automation system to increase security around your home. We can install lighting systems that operate on timers, giving unwanted intruders the impression that someone is home, or giving you the ability to switch off all lights in the house from a single button once you are tucked up snugly in bed. Coupled with an alarm system and CCTV cameras, you can monitor your home from anywhere on the planet all from your smartphone.
If you really have the budget, Elecorp can install a C-Bus network. C-Bus uses a low voltage cable or two-way wireless network to carry command and control signals. It is a more reliable system than the common X10 one and makes it more suitable to larger commercial projects as well as whole-house designs. It can be operated from a choice of modern wall-mounted control panels or your smartphone and tablet.
With C-Bus running your automation set-up the possibilities are endless. From watering your garden to setting ‘scenes’ with your lighting, you can monitor visitors entering the premises and even adjust the climate control as they enter and leave rooms. Some systems are sophisticated enough to put the kettle on and run you a warm bath before you get home from work. Imagine.
All this technology comes at a price though. Home networks absorb lots of internet capability and rely on communication lines between networks. Any system will require high quality data cabling throughout to handle the significant amount of high-speed information. With this in mind, Elecorp offer their wealth of experience in installing CAT 6 data cabling in any project. This cable will adequately handle the size and speed of information being touted by the National Broadband Network, and will ensure it is capable for the foreseeable future.
