Automation for
Home Owners

Your
SMARTEST 

Home yet!

 

When designing your home there are many things for you to consider such as style, floorplan and furnishings, but you may have forgotten the most important consideration. How will your home function in the future to meet your ever-changing needs?

Consider how it should feel and function, visualise the end result, so you don’t make the mistake of purchasing just any smart wifi globes, which run on one application. Then, later realise you wanted full control of lighting, heating and cooling, security and audio visual, which will now have to run on another four separate applications. When these could have been integrated in the first place.

With smart home installation you can easily and seamlessly connect any of your wifi enabled devices to enhance the liveability of your home and the overall lifestyle of your family.

Smart home automation is the easiest way to simplify your home and enable a whole new level of personalisation and security, designed to enrich the functionality of your home.

With the flexibility of scalable automation systems these days, you don’t need to do it all in one hit, but rather build your planned integrated system step-by-step as your budget allows.

At Canny Electrics we work with our clients to intimately understand their needs now and in the future, whether you are a growing family or looking to simplify and downsize. With what we have learned about you and your needs, we create a sophisticated and unique home automation system perfectly suited to you and your home.

 

6 reasons why you should get automated!

1. Smart Technology

Having a Smart Home is now more achievable than ever before. Thanks to the flexibility and scalability of wireless technology, both existing and new homes can be transformed into the perfect environment for you and your family. Though there are options to control lighting, swimming pools, security, heating and cooling, locks, doors, windows and voice control products such as google home, you don’t have to start with a large and expensive package. With over 2400 smart home automation products on the market, there is a Z-Wave product to fit every function and price point.

2. Climate Control

Trying to keep your home the perfect temperature through the summer and winter months can be a difficult task, but not with smart home integrated climate control. You can set the temperature to be personalised to you and your family, now, when you wake up or for when you get home. You also have the luxury of being able to open and close the blinds and windows all at the touch of a button.

3. Lighting and Entertainment

By pairing your lighting and entertainment with a smart home automation system you can significantly reduce your energy consumption and add ambience to your home at your finger tips. No more running around to switch off lights or forgetting to turn them off when you leave home. By working with Canny Electrics you can easily turn your lights on and off and dim them via the app at home or even when you are away. You can also integrate your entrainment systems to allow you to easily select a song, turn the volume up and down or turn on the TV for your pets when you are out. Everything you need to entertain seamlessly integrated.

4. Security

In the past, it wasn’t until you returned home at the end of the day or holiday that you became aware of issues such as water leaks, fire alarms or break-ins. You gain the peace of mind of instant alerts if risky situations occur so you can deal with problems as they happen, even if you are not at home. You can also view your camera’s live stream from anywhere in the world. With your alarm system, door locks and security all running from the one app, which has the capacity to switch to ‘away’ mode to lock doors, turn power point off, arm the alarm and activate the camera. Automation means it has never been easier to stay safe.

5. Voice Control

Voice Control products like Google Home, Siri and Amazon Alexa have completely revolutionised the way we interact with technology. When paired with your smart home, you can control almost any device just by asking Google, Alexa or Siri to help you. Now at the end of the day all you need to do is fall into bed and say, “Hey Google, Goodnight.” Your lights will switch off, the blinds will shut and doors will lock, so you are ready for a good night’s sleep.

Stronger Wifi
Pack

Home Pack

Typically, network setup uses a single device as modem, router, switch and wireless access point. This is fine in small areas with just a few devices. However, in larger buildings, with considerably more network traffic a one-device WiFi solution just does not work. If your WiFi signal and capabilities are not doing the job it is time for an upgrade. Ubiquiti UniFi splits the roles of modem, router, switch and wireless access point into multiple devices. This makes the network much more scalable, and fault tolerant. For instance, if one of the access points stopped functioning, just that point will need replacing as opposed to replacing the entire network. Let’s look at how they fit together.

The security gateway – faster data transfer

No clogging

Unlike traditional modem-routers the USG includes gigabit ethernet ports for both internal and external connections, which reduces the possibility of network clogging when multiple services are running simultaneously.

Advanced security

The enterprise grade firewall gives you reliable routing and advanced security.

Prioritise the performance of each device

Standard combination modem-routers supplied by ISP’s are designed to downscale the infrastructure devices on your network. By separating out the active components you are able to prioritise the performance of each device to deliver higher quality service to each individual.

UniFi long range access point – reliable wireless network coverage

Make tapping into WiFi more effective

Wireless network (WiFi) antennae deliver long range, high-performance coverage. But not every home is able to effectively tap into this.

Improve connectivity

The UniFi access points are network- connected antennas that are ceiling mounted to offer improved connectivity to a large area with strong omni-directional wireless broadcasting. Having these access points wired to your cabled network, you are able to position the devices in strategically placed distribution zones to maximise coverage in areas you need the strongest WiFi.

UniFi cloud key – self-managed network analysis

Correcting faults as they arise

A device smaller than a mobile phone, the UniFi cloud key is a centralised network controller that enables local network devices to operate at their full potential with full-time network analytics, live bandwidth prioritisation and 24/7 fault remedy and update services.

View network statistics and client information

By implementing a cloud key on your network, users are able to view network statistics through a mobile application that provides information on connected clients, network device mapping and throughput information.

Convenient remote access

The UniFi cloud key is your local network controller for centralized device management and offers convenient remote access.

What is included in the pack?
  • 1 x UBI UC Cloud Key
  • 1 x UBI UAP Wifi Amplifier
  • Smart App
  • Programming and Installation
  • 12 Month Warranty

*Single Storey Properties

8-port fully managed gigabit switch- improved network capability

Reduce the stain on the network

The Ubiquiti smart switch range has been designed to talk directly with the UniFi product suite. It implements enterprise grade (Layer 3) smart switching policies that reduce the strain on other network devices. This robust network switch also offers gigabit ethernet and intelligent switching.

Ageing in place
control Package

Our needs change as we age

Though older people have an overwhelming desire to live independently in the community, most recognise that their needs and capabilities change as they age. Have you considered the important supporting roles smart home technologies can play in creating more functional living spaces for people looking to ‘age in place’?

Working alongside your support team

Working with your occupational therapist, health consultant or architect we can help you to take advantage of smart home innovations to achieve a more user-friendly living environment in the home.

Giving you more independence and choice

These technologies can help you live independently for longer, making the choice of staying at home rather than moving into care easier.

Checking in without physically being there

Home Automation also allows others to be notified of someone’s movements around the house. For example, a carer or adult child can being notified that Mum is up and about because she has opened the medicine cabinet to take her medications or opened a door. You can also check in on crucial safety issues such as if the front door is unlocked or no movement detected.

Key benefits
  • Lights turn on/off as they enter or leave rooms to helps prevent falls
  • Doors & windows open/close, lock/unlock automatically
  • Climate kept at a comfortable level
  • Panic button

Please note that while Z-Wave home automation can significantly help in remote control, monitoring and notifications, it is not graded on a health care level and should not be used in place of life supports.

FAQS

How is Z wave technology different to WIFI?

Z-Wave is a lower power alternative compared to WiFi, but with a much bigger range than Bluetooth. Unlike WiFi, where devices have to connect to a central hub, Z-Wave devices all link up together to form a mesh network. This means the devices themselves – sensors, bulbs and so on – don’t have WiFi at all.

Can I use the normal switch on the wall?

Yes, the automation system allows you to control the light in a traditional way from the switch.

How many devices can I control in my home?

1 controller unit can control up to 232 devices.

I’m not sure what I want. Can you help me?

Yes. While we do have packages available to suit most people, we are more than happy to discuss your particular issues to create a package that is just right for you.

My house is old, can I upgrade to this system?

Yes. Though you may need to do a bit of preparation work if your electrical system is not up to scratch, we have adapted many older homes to have all the smart technology bells and whistles.
