Home Automation

Written on the 14 November 2018

Home automation devices can be activated using a range of different interfaces. These include touch screens, panic buttons, TV screens, keypads, hand-held remotes, computers or mobile phones. Some of the devices or appliances that can be automated include:
  • Computers
  • Audio and video entertainment systems
  • Telephone and intercom systems
  • Security and monitoring systems
  • Electrical appliances
  • Lighting - internal/external
    • Well placed external lighting can act as a good deterrent for intruders. Sensor lights are the most effective as they don't need to be on all the time but are activated by movement. Lighting should be mounted well out of reach of tampering and, if possible, placed on all sides of your home.
    • Internal lighting can be connected to an electronic timer to switch on at given intervals to give the impression that someone is home when you are away for the evening or an extended period of time.
  • Pool and spa devices
  • Irrigation systems
  • Air conditioning systems
  • Auto gate and door systems
  • Locks and doors can be fitted with automatic controls and combined with a video intercom system and CCTV monitoring to allow you to see exactly who it is knocking at your door and screen entrants to your property.

The final image you see will only be as clear as the piece of equipment with the lowest resolution. For example, if you use a high-resolution monitor and a low-resolution camera, the monitor will display the image quality of the lower resolution camera. It is important that the resolution of a system meets your needs before it is installed.
