Smart home devices guide.

What is a smart home?

A smart home is where you control your devices from your smartphone or speaker. Using your Wi-Fi, you can turn up the heat, answer the door, dim the lights and more - wherever you are.

What can a smart home do for me?

Choosing the right smart speaker

Make your everyday easier with a Smart Speaker or mobile app. These are the heart of your smart home system as you use them to control your appliances and devices, adjusting them with the touch of a finger or a simple voice command.

The heart of smart

Your voice-activated home assistant. Whatever you need, all you have to do is ask. You can request your favourite track to listen to, arrange your calendar, order your shopping and so much more.

Use a smart speaker to control your smart home - say "lights off" and they're off, ask for more heat and it warms up. Your smart home is yours to command.

What is Amazon Echo?

A hands-free speaker you control with your voice. Echo connects to the Alexa Voice Service to play music, ask questions and much more. Just ask Alexa to control your compatible smart devices, such as lights, switches, thermostats.

To set up your Echo you'll need a free Amazon account and internet connection.

What is Google Home?

A voice-activated speaker powered by the Google Assistant designed to simplify your everyday life. Google Home is compatible with Android and iOS operating systems, and can control compatible smart devices.

To set up your Google Home you'll need a Google account and internet connection.

Smart Heating - never come home to the cold

What is Smart Heating?
With smart heating you can adjust the heat from anywhere, get reminders if you've left the heat on, or use GPS to turn it off automatically when you leave. All you have to do is replace your old thermostat.

How does Smart Heating help you save money?
Smart devices help heat your home evenly throughout, so you should be able to set your thermostat lower which can save you money. Also you can easily delay the thermostat coming on if you're late home so you don't end up heating an empty house.

Smart Security - protecting your home

Keep an eye on your home with cameras that connect straight to your phone. Get alerts with smart doorbells, and answer with your phone so you can tell people you're busy or where to leave the parcel.

Smart cameras are ideal for security or for watching the kids and smart smoke alarms speak to you so you can act quickly, whether it's burnt toast or something more serious. Just download an app and connect the camera and sensors to your home Wi-Fi and smart devices.

Control my lighting

Switch on to smart lighting

Left a light on downstairs? Grab your phone and switch if off. Fancy watching a film? Dim the lights without standing up. There's no more reaching for the switch with smart lighting, simply pick up a starter set that has a smart hub, replace your old bulbs and connect the hub to your Wi-Fi network.

The rest of my home
