Top tedious tasks now handled by your smart home

Bookmark and Share

The future is Smart. Soon, through an intelligent user interface or voice command, homeowners will be able to dim the lights, turn on the TV, stream high-definition media on demand throughout their homes, along with intelligent security and climate control.

According to Statista, the number of people set to update their home or business to a ‘Smart’ environment will treble in the UK over the next five years.

Smart Homeworks, a new technology company based in Bournemouth, one of the biggest digital hubs in the UK, will improve more than 1,500 homes and businesses in Dorset by 2020 through the integration of intelligent service - delivering convenience, security and cost savings. Here’s the top tedious tasks smart homes are solving:

Lock Up

Who needs keys when you can have a smart lock? Never worry about getting locked out again! A smart lock works like keyless car keys: you must be close enough and it just opens.

Turn the heating up or the Lights off

Smart thermostats are amazing because they can help cut costs on heating and cooling bills, since you can adjust them from anywhere, so long as you have internet. You don’t even need to be home.

Cut your bills

Smart LED lightbulbs are a game changer. You can adjust them even when you’re not home, so this is another way to help you stay on top of your monthly costs and an attractive feature for home buyers.

Answer the Door

The Intercom Anywhere, by Control4 and installed by Smart Homeworks is just the best, because you can see who is standing at your front door, even if you’re not even home. The safety and security that a video doorbell provides is attractive, combined with the use of letting people in, monitoring postage and from anywhere in the world makes this a super app.

Check your messages

Apple and Android phones can transcribe spoken messages in any app you request (Smart Homeworks will set up the right permissions for you). Your built in virtual home assistant can draft that text or LinkedIn message, and you can make edits before sending. The voice recognition understands context now and can handle more intuitive requests like “Call my wife at the office.”

The Remote Control

No more fighting over the remote – now you install smart displays, home cinemas, multi-room audio and video controlled by a single user interface or your voice.

Is my network secure?

Next level device security is employed so that customers can rest assured knowing that their family, digital assets and core services are protected within a robust network.
