The smart technology that lets you set the mood in your home.

Creating ambience in your home is all about setting the mood that you want. 

Whether you want to feel relaxed or alert, cosy or fresh, these days you can automatically personalise the atmosphere in your home.

Light up your home Smart ambience

Want to create a sense of warmth during the cooler months? Or maybe you’re keen to tone things down for a sophisticated evening in? Whatever your goal, lighting is your first port of call. 

Change the way you see your home by installing smart LED lights, which you can control like magic using your phone or tablet. 

Set soft lighting in the mornings to help you wake up naturally, a calming tone in the evenings as you wind down, and gradually dimming relaxation as bedtime approaches. You can even choose lights that offer different hues to match the moods you want to set. A one-time setup means you won’t have to give it a second thought.

Smart LEDs can last up to 50,000 hours and can be up to seven times more efficient than other light globes, which could help reduce the amount of energy your home uses. 

Smart heating and cooling

The ambient temperature of your home plays a huge role in how comfy you are. Thankfully, the days of fiddling with the temperature control buttons can be over.

By installing a smart air conditioning controller you can control your air conditioner via your android or iOS smart phone. That means your home will be as warm or cool as you need by the time you get home from work. 

With the ability to automatically turn on or off, it should also mean your air conditioner will spend less time and energy heating and cooling your home. With up to 40 per cent of the average home’s energy used for heating and cooling, that’s a big plus.

Climate monitoring 

A soothing, healthy home ambience can also rely on eliminating the elements that knock your senses out of whack.

A full climate monitor is a great solution. It monitors your home’s air quality, humidity levels (which make a big difference if someone in your family has asthma or allergies), temperature and even the ideal noise levels for your best night’s sleep.

When you think about what makes your house a home, it’s all about living in a comfortable haven. And smart technology that gives your space character and feeling can help you create a true sense of home.
