Our Process

For the initial consultation, one of our team members will come to your house for a consultation and to go through a checklist of the products and scenarios you would like in your Smart Home.

We will then order the products for your home and keep you in the loop regarding delivery dates etc. Once the Items arrive, we will organise a date to fit all of the technology into your home for you!

There are some things that we aren’t able to install ourselves and need either a locksmith or an electrician by law. In these cases, we will organise contractors to come in and fit the final products (light switches and locks only)

 

We then setup all your products to your network and link to your devices.

What You Need First

There are a few things you will need in order to have a smart home. You will need a dedicated internet connection, meaning you’ll need NBN going to you home with a strong router.

 

If your router is not strong enough to cover your entire home and you require a boosted internet connection to reach everywhere in your home, we can install a mesh network to create a WiFi bubble within your home and speed your internet up across the entire house.

We are really passionate about smart homes, it’s our life! We’re looking forward to your inquiry and meeting you.

 

About Smart Homes

 

What is a smart home? If you’ve landed on this website then it’s most likely you’ve already hear the term “smart home” or at least seen an advertisement on television for Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.

 

A Smart Home is simply a home that has devices connected to your internet network. You can control them via the web and your smartphone. Most devices you will be able to control remotely, meaning that you don’t have to be home on your WiFi to turn them on and off, as long as you’re connected to a mobile network.

 

A smart home is a network of devices that make your life easier, solve a problem, remove a repetitive task through automation or adds an extra layer of security to your home.

About Pricing

Many of you might be thinking “this all sounds great, but how much does it cost?”

 

That all depends on how big your house is. Your ballpark figures all depend if you want just functionality or if you would like to monitor consumption. Each device will have specific functions.

 

For example, smart plugs are just a plug that can be controlled remotely and they all have this function, however, to add automation and/or to monitor energy consumption you will need to buy a smart plug that offers these features.

 

A basic smart home installation for a two bedroom home can cost anywhere between $1,000 – $5,000 depending on what you require and how many devices you will need.

 

A more sophisticated smart home installation in a two bedroom home can cost anywhere between $2,000 – $10,000 depending on your requirements, energy monitoring functions and automation standards.

 

Anybody can get started with building the foundation of their smart home with just a chromecast and Google mini for just under $200.
