Use Smartphones to Automate your Home and Office

Positive Power Australia strives to be innovative and at the forefront with cutting-edge technologies. Mobile applications and the latest smartphones make our daily lives more convenient. These technologies can also serve to make your home or workplace as efficient as possible too.

Household and office automation is not a new concept. Thermostats, garage doors, elevators and even refrigerators that produce ice cubes and cold water upon the press of a button are now commonplace. However, home and office automation has been elevated to a new level with generation digital controls built right into manufacturing processes. These latest products range from robot vacuum cleaners to temperature and security settings that you can control right from your smartphone.

The “Internet of Things”

The foundation of true home automation is a wireless network that connects a series of electronic appliances and interfaces with the Operating System (OS) of your smartphone. Usually connected by a single program, the wireless network sends out radio frequency (RF) signals to the selected device, achieving a response and allowing the user to control it remotely as desired. Technical professionals have begun to refer to this setup between electronic appliances and Web-linked devices as the “Internet of Things.”

Once activated, your smartphone can be integrated with numerous automated systems throughout your home, including:

  • Light switches (for remote dimming and brightening);
  • The front and back door (through a keyless entry system);
  • Indoor heating and air conditioning;
  • Motorised blinds;
  • Water heaters;
  • And so many other options

Proper Installation

Some of these connections require specific electronic products to supplement a wireless connection, including specialty plugs and monitors. It’s imperative that consumers know which products are best for automating their home—and that means choosing the right source for technical advice.

Here’s a thought, imagine you’re out late, just say at a friend’s place and you intended to be back at home before dark because you didn’t leave any lights on.
