What is Smart Wiring and Home Automation


Smart wiring promotes the creation of a cabled home network, which allows your devices to communicate with each other seamlessly.

Every home built today should have smart wiring installed. The amount of hardwired phones and faxes in the home is dropping dramatically, however there is a massive increase in the number of network devices being released in the market and appearing in the home. A home once had one desktop PC. Now it is common for a home to have multiple PCs and or laptops, smart phones, tablets, network enabled gaming consoles, internet enabled phones (VOIP), network printers and more. Media streaming devices, and media centre PCs are designed to plug into your TV/Theatre and give you access to your digitally stored movies, music and photos. Smart TVs are now streaming hours and hours of Catchup, Netflix, Amazon, and Youtube.

To utilise these types of products, you require a high speed data network integrated with high grade Television cabling to industry recognised standards. Conventional phone cabling or wireless networks can not effectively deal with the amount of high speed applications that are now required in the home.

The home now needs significantly more internet speed than the office. Entertainment requires speed and integrity of signal. Wireless is not sufficient, especially when multiple applications are occurring simultaneously. High definition video, surround sound and gaming applications in particular require more speed.

Smart wiring allows reconfiguration of the home over and over again as your needs change or as the home is sold. This avoids the need for expensive rewiring.




We understand you are an individual and the way your home interacts with you is based upon your desires and should not be limited by convention.


When you leave home in the morning, simply arming your security will shut down the home lighting, giving you piece of mind that you have not left anything on. When you come home in the evening, disarming the security will set lighting scenes to welcome you home. (Note: A security system must be designed and installed prior.)


Standard Intelligent Home design connects your C-BUS system to your internal structured cabling (Smartwiring.) This means with a simple hardware upgrade you can be controlling your custom designed home automation system remotely from anywhere around the world, via the internet.


Lighting Control in this day and age is no longer simply control of your lights. Customers have been asking for more and the manufacturers have been delivering. A well designed lighting control system can now control your blinds, reticulation, air-conditioning, floor heating, pool pumps and much more. Installing a lighting control system in your home no longer has to be just about lights, but more about whole home automation, making the home an environment designed to meet your needs.
