Here are 17 of the best home automation ideas by Technology on Tap, home automation services:


Home Security

Home security is possibly the most important home automation around. Used to enhance security and protect your family, home security is taken to the next level when automated. Many home security automations link up to your smart device, whether it be a phone or tablet, and make the automation convenient and accessible.

1. All home lights activated to switch on during a suspected intrusion.

2. Access to your CCTV live stream through your smartphone or tablet with an internet connection.

3. Doors automatically lock or unlock when you arrive or leave home.

4. Electronics create an impression that someone is home when the house is actually empty.

5. Doors lock automatically after dark

Smart Lighting

You no longer have to get up and walk around the home to switch all the lights off. With a simple control on your smartphone or touchscreen wall mount, you are able to control all the lights in your home as one, or individually per room.

Not only can you switch lights on or off, but with the right LED lights you can even dim or make them brighter to suit your moods and needs. With home automation, the possibilities with lighting are endless.

You are able to stream music throughout your home, and even have different streams in different rooms, using your smartphone, tablet or streaming devices. You can really make your home your own.

2. Use different audio zones to play different music in every room

3. Control your home audio from your smartphone or wall mounted touchscreen control panel

Home Theatre

Visuals on a 4K television aren’t all that makes a home theatre experience. Take things to the next level with home theatre automation. Control the environment of the room you are watching in, control the volume, change streaming channels from your couch, and even turn your television on and off when you aren’t home.
