What is a smart home?

smarthomes for luxury living - from Hyperion Tiles

Smart home technology allows access to your home via a personalised access code or an NFC Key Fob

A smart home allows homeowners to automatically control elements such as lighting, climate, energy management, household appliances, entertainment systems and security to name a few of the key functional categories. This can be done via automated logic, presence, the tap of a switch or through wall mounted screens and a mobile app.  This means that homeowners can control all of the connected smart elements in their property, from anywhere, be it whilst at home or away from the property.

Convenience at every level

In addition to the more ‘obvious’ elements listed above, smart home technology can also be applied to garden irrigation, swimming pools and saunas. Imagine having a garden that waters itself based on the current soil moisture reading, anticipated rainfall in the weather forecast and from this determines the required watering time each day - the possibilities and smart solutions really are endless! With a dedicated and experienced team, we are offering you the chance to benefit from an intelligent home with all the latest technology.

What are the benefits of a smart home solution?

A smart home offers complete control, on many different levels. It offers comfort, convenience, safety and energy efficiency. Importantly, not all smart homes and smart systems are the same. The technology means that each property can be customised to its owner’s exact needs and lifestyle.

Heating comes within part of an energy management system in this Passive House

This Passive House* (*it uses the sun, internal heat sources and heat recovery efficiently) needs no external energy sources for heating and generates more energy than it consumes. This home's electricity production is intelligently integrated into the smart home system so it's run in the most energy-efficient way

Saving time with the latest technology

Above all, a smart home saves you time. Because your control system takes care of so many tasks automatically, it gives homeowners much more time and opportunity to enjoy doing other things. Our Loxone 360-degree smart home solution coordinates all elements to work together within one holistic system, for all the benefits of an unparalleled, luxury living experience.

Making your house instantly smarter via the latest technology in your worktop from Hyperion Tiles

With our smart home operating system, you could control your home from your kitchen worktop with this built-in device. Take this a step further and we can also position these same controls behind your new tiles in the shower, bedside cabinet surfaces and many more useful applications.

Easy to install in every space 

We are thrilled to be part of such an exciting ‘all-in-one’ smart home solution. A key advantage of the Next Gen Smart Homes implementation of Loxone technology is that it doesn’t require a separate app for each set of functional controls. The company’s innovative ‘Touch switches’ also maximise functionality in a seamless way. The simple and user-friendly interface incorporates fewer buttons, for more clarity and full control from room to room - decluttering walls, removing complexity and enabling maximum control at the tap of a switch.
