Smart Home Installation and Wiring

In an era where so many aspects of our lives are digitally driven, it’s only logical to progress to smart home automation. By incorporating this technology into our daily routine, we not only enhance comfort and efficiency but also significantly improve safety and security.

So, what kinds of devices can you connect to your wireless network for maximum convenience? You’re probably already familiar with smart thermostats, smart locks and video doorbells, smart speakers, and safety monitors and sensors. However, the list extends to various other applications including:

Smart lighting (including bulbs, switches, and plugs)

Smart gardening

Smart blinds

Security alarms and display systems

Every device wirelessly syncs to your network and can be conveniently managed right from your home, with certain ones offering control options even when you’re at your workplace or travelling.

What can you gain from integrating smart home automation?

1. User-Friendliness

The top draw for consumers is user-friendliness. Think about how handy it would be to control your gadgets remotely, or to manage your home theatre lighting without having to leave your chair.

2. Security and Protection

By automating your home lighting, you’re not only potentially preventing theft through measures like setting a light timer to give the illusion of occupancy but also increasing your personal safety. Lights that detect motion can prevent theft and keep you from stumbling over a stray garden hose.

3. Cost Savings

When you’re not at home, you can use your smartphone to control your smart thermostat and smart lighting as necessary. You can conserve money on your utility bill and aid the environment by only using devices when necessary.

What will a smart home installation set me back?

It varies. Is it a simple smart lighting addition, or a complete home automation wiring project? The former might be a few hundred dollars. The latter, factoring in the cost of labour and all devices, could be anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 or more. Remember, though, while there can be cost savings through decreased energy usage, the initial cost of smart devices can be higher compared to traditional devices. If you’re unsure, starting with smart lighting can be an affordable way to dip your toes into smart home technology.
