A new Apple app makes home automation easily achievable, explains Karen Chugg, Intelligent Abodes in Devon
Home automation is coming to everyone, with the new Apple Home app. Home automation networks devices in the home so that they can talk to each other, making it easier for you to control and manage your environment. For example, the press of one button can dim lights, close curtains and turn on the television.
Apple, always a technology trendsetter, connects us through information-sharing, entertainment and gaming, so it was a great opportunity for Intelligent Abodes to hold an event at the Apple Store in Exeter, providing the ideal platform to show how Apple’s new app integrated with the products and services offered by the company.
Intelligent Abodes has been installing home-automation systems for more than eight years in the South West, controlling lighting, heating, blinds/curtains, multi-room audio and home cinema solutions, all stored in one discreet location in your home and controlled from an easy-to-use app on your phone, tablet or remote control.
In the past, many people considered home automation too technical or expensive, rejecting it as a possibility when building or renovating their homes. However, with Apple’s Home app, it is available in a format that is affordable and easy to use.
