What is a smart home?  

Picture this. Imagine arriving home to find the lighting has turned on as you approach the door. As you unlock the front door your home security system automatically deactivates the house alarm. You then ask your television to put your favourite channel on and your home is nice and warm or cool as you have pre-set the temperature from your phone. This is what smart home automation can do and much more, by bringing technologies together over a secure home network Idea can transform any home in to a modern smart home, with technologies to simplify and enhance the security to our customers’ lifestyle.

What does it involve?

A smart home installation from Idea will include any number of the following systems; 

  • home lighting control 
  • heating and ventilation control
  • home audio
  • home cinema
  • security systems including intruder alarms, CCTV and access control systems.

These systems will be designed and installed in such a way that they integrate with each other and become one system working in harmony rather than many smaller independent systems.  At Idea, our systems are planned and designed with you in mind.  After a free consultation we will plan and design a bespoke system designed specifically to meet your needs and requirements.    

Why would I benefit from a Smart Home?

The simple answer is yes. Your home will be more secure, you will save energy, you will be more comfortable and ejoy the very latest quality in entertainment. In the same way we now expect our cars to have things like electric windows, climate control and central locking; yet when it comes to our homes, often new technology is an after-thought.

With a custom install from Idea you can now take control of your home or even let it take control of itself.  Have a look at each of the systems and see how you could benefit.
