Many are realising that green living has great financial benefits.  And smart home automation systems also help with saving on monthly costs, as well as adding to comfort and convenience.

As an example, smart lighting systems are used.

A sensor in every room automatically switches lights on and off when movement is detected.  This is a luxurious way to live.  At night, when everyone else in the house is sleeping, there is no need to look for light switches in the dark when going into the kitchen or bathroom.

Lighting is one of the easiest areas in which to save energy.

As another example, heat pumps heat water using less electricity than a geyser.  The energy consumption of the heat pump is monitored by the smart home automation system – and it is possible to adjust the water temperature via a smartphone app or computer, adding convenience to one’s lifestyle.
