The Joys of Home Automation

Home Automation

Home automation uses technology to improve and simplify the way you use your home. It makes ordinary tasks more convenient and appliances and entertainment systems easier to use.

Home Automation or Smart Home products are becoming more and more popular, particularly in the Sydney property market. The most popular smart home products control lighting, blinds, power points, garage doors, appliances and heating and cooling products. The user can create scenes, control lighting without being home, turn on and off power points and create an amazing experience for themselves and their guests. 

Here at Safe N Sound Electrical, home automation specialist Sydney, we are the leading professionals in Sydney to install your home automation system. Having a professional install your home automation system ensures that the capabilities of your smart devices are set up correctly. 

You can use home automation to improve almost everything in your home. You can program your morning so that the lights turn on, the kettle boils and your favourite music starts playing. For even greater convenience, you can pre-determine the settings on your automated system for lighting, heating, and entertainment to suit different situations. As an example, you could set the system to control various elements simultaneously, so that when you go to bed it turns off all the inside lights, switches on the security camera at the front door, adjusts the kids’ night lights, and switches off the heater – all with one swipe of your smart-screen remote or an app on your phone.

Home automation systems can improve the energy efficiency of your home, if they are designed for this purpose. You can automate lights through motion sensors and timers, or more elaborate centralised systems, so they operate only when needed and switch themselves off when rooms are vacant. You can use motion sensors to switch on external lights when needed, or lights when entering the home, rather than leaving lights on.

At Safe N Sound Electrical, home automation specialist Sydney, another popular home automation functionality that we have seen rise in popularity is temperature control. It is increasingly popular for our clients to want to turn heating or cooling on before they get home or timing the system to switch off after they have gone to bed. The possibilities for functionality in the home are expanding rapidly, so there’s never been a better time to get connected.

Overall home automation aims to make your life more comfortable and secure. The level of automation that you implement throughout your home is completely up to you. You can start with just automating one function throughout your home such as lighting.  

When it comes to home automation the options are continuously evolving.  Here at Safe N Sound Electrical, home automation specialist Sydney, we can help you explore the best options for home automation that will complement your lifestyle and budget.

Darren Dewerson - licensed electrician in Sydney

I started in the industry installing security alarms and CCTV camera systems 25 years ago in London. I worked on thousands of sites servicing alarm electrical systems for large building companies, schools & other locations.

When I arrived in Australia I wasn’t allowed to apply for a security licence as I was not a citizen at the time so I decided get my TAFE qualifications and retrain as an electrician which complimented my electrical assistant work in London. I have been working as an electrician in Sydney since 2005.

For just over 40 years I have been involved in all types of electrical installations, upgrades, emergency repairs and set ups.
