We made it. We live in an age where artificial intelligence including robots, machines, and smart applications make our day-to-day lives easier. From automated vacuums that clean our homes while we put our feet up and instruct Alexa to play our favourite album, to remote lighting systems controlled by our location on a map. What would’ve been the stuff of science fiction a few decades ago, is now our everyday reality. But are you making the most of it?
Hands-free technology is one of the biggest trends in the tech industry today — adding voice assistants to household appliances, controlling your home from commands you call out from the comfort of your sofa. We love being able to turn on our lights, turn up the heating and switch on our plugs with phone applications and assistants — but why settle for remote control and hands-free, when you could have hands-off?
Imagine you’re driving home from the office, it’s cold, it’s dark, and it’s been a busy day. You arrive home, and, your lights are on, guiding you into your driveway and up to your door. As you step inside, the heating is at the perfect temperature. And as you head to the kitchen, you find the kettle has just finished boiling, ready for a fresh cup of your favourite evening tipple. All without saying a word, or even looking at your phone.
We work with systems that don’t just listen to your commands but use GPS milestones to send instructions to your home based on where you’re going.
Comfort and convenience
While GPS systems are perfect for lights, heating, and simple plug switches, some things can’t be controlled by your geo-location, but can by your voice. We all have day-to-day tasks that we need to get done, but now there are ways to make them easier. With discreet smart assistants like Alexa and Google Home, you can turn on your washing machine, change the song on your home Sonos system, and even toggle your garden sprinklers – experiencing convenient control in comfort.
We’re discovering new tech
To make sure our customers are always getting the latest and greatest technology in an ever-developing market, we travelled to the ISE conference in Amsterdam. With over 1300 exhibitors, Integrated Systems Europe is the world’s largest exhibition for AV and system integration, with everything from giant LED screens to the most advanced home automated tech.
Get full-control without the touch of a button – geo-location smart-home systems are the future of home automation. From automated lighting and window blinds to GPS toggled heating and voice assistants that can turn on your washing machine, we can help you find the technologies to suit your needs, and your home.
