An increasing number of new residential buildings are now being designed with home automation features as standard, increasing the popularity, awareness and appreciation of such technology. Retrofitting, which allows the integration of current systems with smart-technology is also on the increase. The design stage is the vital time that architects and interior designers come in and design with their client to create a perfect home.
The demand for home automation has risen with the evolution of the smart phone. The latest technology is used to enable full control of your home, remotely and has become as easy as sending a text.
Designing a smart home has become favoured as clients want a feature home that oozes class, style, and modern technology. HDL is keen to explore the creative minds of the clients and to work in collaboration with industry experts and installers to allow the creation of fantastic smart buildings.
Smart home technology is economic, energy efficient and affordable. Controlling the home remotely, saving energy and the convenience of integrating multimedia devices has become the modern way to live and is popular among newly weds, business professionals and techie fans, as well as first time buyers, the elderly, children and busy people. HDL Smart home systems can be programmed to work around any lifestyle.
Also HDL home systems can beprogrammed to set scenes and create moods within your home inspiring different atmospheres for different moods. For example, you can create a function called “cinema” and the home will respond by drawing the curtains, dimming the lights and turning on the TV. Other functions include a “relax” function and with one touch of a button, selected lights will light, dim others and play soft music while LEDs softly change colour on a feature fireplace. All scenes are completely adaptable and custom programmed to suit the client’s needs.
Appliances can also be included in the HDL smart home system and be monitored from an app while you are at work or through a mobile phone. This feature is particularly handy if you have a forgetful client who is worried about hair straighteners or the rice cooker! With technology such as this, HDL will ensure complete peace of mind. Monitor a wide range of aspects, from which lights are on, the current temperature, live footage from security cameras and all other programmed aspects of smart home technology.
