Automation

by JamieJonk

The automation or ‘Automation Control’ of your property effectively incorporates a management of multiple aspects of our daily lives and can range from switching on your coffee machine when waking up, to switching on your favourite TV channel when returning home, to switching off the lights and setting the security alarms when leaving the office to return home; with minimal or reduced human interaction; the applications involved in the automation of your property are almost limitless.

Some applications for this in your Home Environment:

  • Lighting Management
  • Pool Pump
  • Irrigation Systems
  • Lawnmower Settings
  • Power or Plugs | On/Off
  • Alarm Activation
  • Music Streaming
  • Security System Management
  • Notifications | Real-time reporting and feedback
  • Climate Control
  • Environmental/Eco-Friendly device management

Some applications for this in your Office Environment:

  • Lighting Management
  • Power or Plugs | On/Off
  • Alarm Activation
  • Audio & Visual Streaming
  • Security System Management
  • Notifications | Real-time reporting and feedback
  • Climate Control
  • Environmental/Eco-Friendly device management

If it can be automated, we can automate it.

Security System Management

by JamieJonk

Security is of the utmost importance in this modern age, whether being the protection of your equipment, information and data; or the lives of your loved ones, colleagues, staff, etc. it is an aspect that should be at the forefront of everyone’s minds, whilst not causing an inconvenience to maintain/manage.

Systems can be put into place to make this manageable and more effective with ‘real-time’ convenience, providing a powerful and effective tool to monitor and maintain the safety of those you are responsible for.

The security systems range from intruder detection with notification settings to inform you or a security company to action response, to access control, further to real-time viewing of your properties prior to arriving home or at the office; with further recording capabilities should an incident occur and the footage is required for further investigation or insurance purposes; the responsibility of ensuring this safety should be integrated into your daily life with as much ease as possible.

We understand this important responsibility and provide solutions applicable to your home and/or office areas, to make the monitoring of this as seamless and easy as possible.

Network Solutions

by JamieJonk

There are very few things more frustrating than a badly managed network setup, whether in your home or office environment; and one of the most easily corrected problems as long as your service provider understands the logic and specifications/limitations of the devices being incorporated into an effective network system.

With our specialist networking knowledge, this will no longer be a concern, we work closely with a number of network equipment manufacturing/development companies to ensure that we are up to speed with all technology available in this area of expertise and as a result are continuously in the position to be able to provide a seamless and problem-free network solution.

In all honesty, your network should be the least of your concerns on a day-day basis and a system that should be running in the background without the need for continuous corrections, and once set up correctly, will not cause any delays in the running of your life or business on a daily basis.

It is always inadvisable to have your network set up by someone without the understanding of what an effective network entails, whether knowing the limitation or adaptations of specific equipment, in a wireless or cable-managed situation, we cannot express how important it is to have a professional attend to the management of your network as delays can negatively affect you in a myriad of ways.

Audio & Visual

by JamieJonk

The area’s wherein an Audio Visual installation can be incorporated are extensive; whether being in your residential home, a hotel, conference centre or offices; almost every aspect of your normal day to day requirements can be automated or programmed to your specific requirements. Simply put, this means possessing both a sound and a visual component, or another audiovisual expression is the visual presentation of sound. Generally, residential audiovisual encompasses in-ceiling speakers, flat panel TVs, projectors and projector screens. This could include lighting, blinds, cinema rooms.

In a residential application, the audio visual representation would be typically applied in a room or area whereby you have/would like to have a visual representation (TV, home theatre with projector & screen, or security system, etc.) and you require audio to relate to same/to sync with the media device; or whether you have areas whereby you would like audio only (entertainment areas, dining room, kitchen etc.)  so that you can stream your favourite music, without having a visual stimulant as well.

In an office, conference room or boardroom type of application; you may wish to have projector screens or video walls for presentation purposes or a system that can allow you to have conference calls with colleagues whilst sharing media and audio discussions instead of waiting for all parties to be in the same room, and when considering the logistical challenges of getting schedules aligned, this would be advantageous.

When considering the security challenges when there may be multiple boardrooms which may be booked by different companies, or even in the case of residential sharing (for example in a hotel) whereby information relating to the occupant/s or company making use of the space is being reviewed/shown, etc.; the security precautions in terms of the sharing of electronic data or rather to ensure that the presentation or communications do not overlap or be available for accessibility; specific considerations to the protection of your information/data will be incorporated.

Whether you are looking to upgrade an area in your home or for your business purposes; we will ensure the best and most applicable equipment for the area, as well as ensuring the safety of your information.

Eco Property

by JamieJonk

An Eco Home is essentially an environmentally-friendly or environmentally-conscious home, where materials and technology would reduce your carbon footprint and energy consumption. While we cannot do much about the property structure itself; we can address the energy consumption side.

The way in which this would be managed, would be by connecting your devices to our systems that can provide you with information and access to providing commands that will lower the consumption, not necessarily requiring you to micro-manage your household on a weekly, daily or hourly basis for example – although this can be done if you would prefer; but by setting up the system in the most efficient way. One of the biggest misconceptions we have found, is that switching your geyser off completely at times lowers your consumption; however all energy saved during that period is utilized, and more, when turning it on again – thereby heating from cold/room temperature to hot as quickly as possible. Not only is this not the most effective solution, it also would place strain on your geyser, which is worse in winter when the cold/room temperature is naturally lower than during the warmer months.

Lowering the temperature during those same hours to a much lower percentage, and having a set time when it starts to heat to ‘normal’ temperature, would reconcile the purpose to the cause – however this requires a system that can manage the process for you.

The concept further applies to your security lighting, which typically would be left on all day should you have a late meeting/traffic delays, or be out of the house leading into the evening and would prefer to have the front door lighting on when returning; this would not be necessary with a managed system in place whereby you could turn on lighting when leaving the venue, or when nearing the property (or office). This portion would extend into the security system management whereby CCTV cameras can be viewed before arriving at the property and finding yourself in an avoidable situation.

We have these systems available, not only limited to the examples mentioned before, which not only assist in the environmental areas, but by extension to saving electricity and thereby lowering your monthly consumption costs as well.

It has never been easier, or more affordable, to contribute in the conservation of resources.

Lighting

by JamieJonk

Changing a day to day (or night to night perhaps) automatic action, to a daily experience; why not change the way you perceive the lighting up of your life.

With our wide array of management systems, catering for almost any budget, the ability to create and manage the ambiance in your home or office has never been easier. Whether to dim the lighting because you are holding a candle-lit dinner, and don’t want to trip over the chair after switching off the lights and you cannot see where you are walking because the candle light doesn’t reach the area, being away and for security purposes would prefer that this not be obvious, or even leaving the office and being concerned about you or your employees walking to their vehicles in the dark; your lighting can be completely manageable depending on your requirements.

Not only would you be able to control the lighting with ease, timed scenes can also be programmed to accommodate normal routines; but further giving you the option to customize the system should you be returning home or leaving the office later than normal occasionally, and thereby not wanting to leave your security lighting or front door light on or off for the excess time.

The multiple aspects that can be implemented into your home or office, even with something as simple as automating your lighting, extends further than just simple convenience; the security and cost reduction benefits will convince even the most frugal members of community. Having a managed lighting system will appeal to everyone, whether for security, energy conscious, an image or saving resources; your lighting no longer needs to be the underwhelming task it is currently viewed as.

Some ideas for your Home:

  • Security lighting – switching on the access area lights, front door/gate/garage, etc. when preparing to travel home – thereby not remaining on all day in preparation for your return; or when away can schedule times that the lights switch on and off so it appears as though someone is home.
  • Want to check whether you left a light on – log in to the system and check – and if it is on, turn it off – it really is as simple as that.
  • Have guests coming around and you forgot to switch on the patio lights but need to go let them in, and don’t want to look unprepared perhaps – whilst walking to greet them, quickly switch on lighting in your App.

Some ideas for your Office:

  • Early morning at the office, or staying later than normal or your colleagues and locking up when it is dark; and concerned about the property being watched for the lighting to go off and knowing that there will be at least one person walking in the dark to their vehicles? Keep key lights on whilst locking and leaving, and switch off when you get home; or at your next stop.
  • When having a projected presentation, you can remain seated with your clients and dim the lighting and then restore afterwards, without having to leave your seat.
  • Having an economical lighting system, as an understated mission will reflect well upon your clients; whilst an image tool that does not need to be specifically pointed out.
