Embrace Smart Home Technology with the Help of Nisi Group
Smart home technology is on the rise. In 2017, the market for smart home devices in Australia charted a 55 percent growth from the year before. As this technology becomes more affordable—and as its list of capabilities continue to grow—more and more homeowners are going to be jumping on the smart home train. At Nisi Group, we are here to help you design a fully-realised smart home setup, tailored specifically to meet your needs.
Trends about Smart Home Devices You Should Know
Before you delve into the world of smart home technology, you might be interested to know about some the trends that are currently dominating the market. Here are a few key insights to keep in mind as you move forward:
Smart speakers are just the tip of the iceberg: Smart speakers, such as Amazon Alexa, were many people’s introduction to smart home tech. However, these decides are just the tip of the iceberg. While voice-activation is a component of smart home automation, it’s usually merely a tool by which other smart home features—such as smart lighting or entertainment controls—can be controlled.
The smartphone is the hub: When you invest in a smart home technology system, expect your smartphone or tablet to be the hub of it. One of the terrific things about modern smart home tech—and one of the reasons it is growing in popularity—is that it can now be monitored and controlled in an intuitive, integrated fashion directly from a smart device.
Zoning features are crucial: One of the factors that makes a smart home ‘smart’ is its ability to control different parts of the home differently. So, for instance, you might set up a smart thermostat so that it isn’t expending as much energy cooling parts of the house where nobody is present. This type of zone control is crucial to everything from entertainment systems to smart lighting.
Creative Ways to Use Smart Home Technology
At Nisi Group, we are dedicated to helping you get the most out of your home automation technology. That can mean different things for different people, but it often means helping our customers discover creative ways of using this technology to meet their unique needs. Some examples include:
Raising or lowering blinds: Blinds are a way to control how much natural light—and how much natural heat—makes its way into your home. Raising or lowering blinds strategically, via home automation, can help you reduce your energy spending on light and HVAC.
Door unlocking: Do you need to let a friend, family member or neighbour into your home? Instead of being there to let them in, or giving them a key, simple use your home automation system to unlock the door remotely. This system gives you more oversight of home access and is convenient in a way those other options aren’t.
Making your home more welcoming: You know when you get home every day. Why not set up your smart home system to welcome you by turning on the lights, switching on the air conditioning (or the heat) and switching on your favourite song?
