Future fantastic from New Home Trends volume 2106
Automated housing was something usually only possible in the realm of science fiction – but operating combinations of lighting, security, heating and home theatre with the push of a button or from miles away, is now a reality.
Andrew Perring, sales manager at Automation Associates, says parents who install home theatre and gaming options at home might receive more teenage guests, but prefer their families to be safe having fun at home.
"iNET smart wiring lets people view and control Sky and DVD movies from any room in the house," says Perring. "But home theatre is only one benefit of smart housing. Security is also a high priority."
"Connecting gate cameras to your television is now commonplace. Invisible beams around the house add to the sense of security created by a well designed intruder detection system," he says.
New technology needn't be complicated. LCD touchscreens mean anyone can access this new technology, says Perring.
