Home Automation can revolutionise how you live in a home day to day providing control over your homes services at the touch of a button via phones, tablets, touchscreens and keypads. Then there is scheduled programming based on the time of day plus the ability to cause a change in state of services in your home due to light, temperature. wind speed or rain.
A few key things to consider when deciding if home automation is for you;
- Home automation is not cheap!
Ask your builder if third party companies like us are allowed on site if not no automation!
Automated lighting wires differently to conventional so this discussion needs to be made early to inform the electrician on how the home is to be wired
- Engage an integrator like ourselves early, there is a lot involved with the planning and design of an automated home
We need to know if the air conditioning, blinds, fans, fireplace etc can integrate into an automation system. Always ask the contractor when specifying each service “Will this integrate with Control4?” if they don’t know ask them to find out!
Some of the services that are capable of being automated;
- Blinds , shutters & Louvers
- Air conditioning
- Surveillance cameras
- Alarm system & access control
- Garage doors
- Under floor heating
- Water features & Irrigation
- Driveway gate
- Multi-Room Music
- Multi-Room Video
- Home Theatre
How much is my automation system going to cost?
Accurately estimating a whole home automation system is difficult just as difficult as understanding exactly how much it is going to cost to build your home before you start.

Call in and have a conversation with one of our custom team and be ready to provide a full set of plans once we understand your requirements & review your plans we will provide you with an initial loose figure which will allow you to decide if automation is for you
If this initial price is affordable and you wish to proceed we will need lock down how many switchable lighting loads you will have plus we will need the make & model of the services you wish to include to proved a detailed and more accurate estimate
Please understand due to the massive amount of time we spend on design, wiring, installing, programming and commissioning your new automation system plus the amount of aftersales service required to ensure the home is configured to your liking pricing for automation is non negotiable.
