It’s time to get your inner geek on folks, as we enter the amazing world of smart home wiring and explore exactly how it can transform your domestic life.
Far more than being a technology fad or a convenience for the lazy, smart home wiring actually allows you to level-up your home to optimise your home security, keep your computer data safe, manage your energy consumption and carbon footprint, and even monitor the dietary and exercise habits of your family.
It does this by combining all of the various wires that exist in your standard home (think lighting, heating and cooling, home security, internet, and home entertainment systems) and streamlining them into a single, uniformed platform.
When your home technology works together from one streamlined system, it becomes known as a connected home. What this means, is that your home’s heating/cooling thermostat, security, locks, appliances, audio, TV, internet and more are all plugged in to one system that can be controlled from your smart phone or touchscreen device. Pretty sweet, huh!
In this golden age of technology, here’s just some of the ways that smart wiring can benefit you and your family.
6 benefits of a smart home wiring system
Control how your home functions from your pocket: Smart wiring gives you the ability to control so many functions in your home – such as your internal heating and cooling – using nothing more than your phone. These functions can be controlled at home or remotely, which is wonderful if you want to power up the home air conditioner as you leave work on a stinking hot day. Forgetful homeowners can remotely lock their door if they forgot to do so when they left, turn on the lights, or keep an eye on who comes and goes at the house.
Optimise home security: Speaking of visitors to your home, security devices connected to your smart home wiring system will give you real-time peace of mind that all is as it should be. Alarms and video cameras can be monitored through your mobile device in real time, allowing you to activate and monitor these devices whenever you wish. Some of these devices will also send a notification to your phone in the event of a disturbance or security risk.
Improve efficiency of appliances: Many modern fridges, washing machines, dryers and even ovens can be connected to your smart home wiring system. Not only can you operate them remotely, but you can check at a glance how much energy they are consuming, adjust the settings and ensure they are functioning at peak performance – which will ensure less wear and tear.
Improve health and efficiency of your family: All these amazing smart devices can also provide valuable data on your family and its lifestyle habits. Are you worried the kids are watching too much TV? You can check that at a glance, as well as what is being watched (great for those with children). You can review what food is being kept in the fridge and when it needs replacing – and even what kind of meals you’re cooking in the oven. Having all of this information at hand means you can make regular tweaks to the lifestyle when required for healthy outcomes.
Manage your family’s smart devices: Smart wiring systems allow you to connect many devices to one interface, with you in control. No more nasty excess data charges from certain devices – while optimised security keeps you and your children safe.
You’re plugged in to the future: Once your smart home wiring system is in place, new devices and appliances are a breeze to add – today and into the future. This allows you to keep up with technological advances and improve the efficiency of your home.
