Remote lighting control, digital locks, and home security!

Managing a rental property can have a few challenges with regard to convenient entry access for guests, appliances being left on, warming or cooling the home for guests prior to arrival, compatibility with HIFI, maintenance of a pool, and security of the property when vacant. Many of these challenges can be alleviated by having a connected smart home with Environexus automation.

The Electric Crew worked closely with the owners of this Mornington holiday home and was able to retrofit many automated and connected functions to improve convenience for both guests and the owner.

Access to the home is made secure and easy with a Lockwood Digital Lock. Personalised and removable codes are generated by the owner for new guests and can be shared with all guests to make their stay easier with keyless entry. The owner can remotely monitor the status of the garage door and lock to ensure the house is secure at any time.

Guests (and cleaners) use an app to open the garage door. In doing this, the alarm is automatically turned off and the outdoor and entry lighting is activated.

Guests can walk into a hydraulically heated home that the owner was able to turn on remotely through the connected thermostat prior to guests arriving.
