Living rooms can be used for multiple purposes. This is where you can relax mid-week with your favorite Netflix series, watch family movies in cinematic style, or host friends for weekend catch-ups. You can even do some lounge room dancing if you wish!
You can enhance your home’s lifestyle by creating a living space that allows for entertaining. We share the most recent smart-tech innovations to create unforgettable memories and delight your friends.
The first step in creating a connected living space is installing a smart home system. You can control nearly all of your electronic devices remotely via an app on your smartphone or by voice command. Schneider Electric’s Offer Manager Tim Fant says, “A smart home optimizes your life, gives you total control, and makes daily living easy and seamless.”
Clipsal Wiser(TM), for instance, allows you to create “Automations” that trigger smart devices and appliances at specific times. Tim explains that smart automation is when your home triggers something. For example, your living room lights will turn on at sunset every night. To create an Automation, download the Wiser(TM) by SE app to your phone and save the settings for the next time.
SWITCHED ON LIGHTING
Smart lighting is key to creating the right atmosphere for any occasion. For a luxurious look, dimmable overhead lighting and LED strip lighting can be used to highlight cabinetry in a living room. You can connect your lights to your smart-home system and control them using voice commands such as Google Home or Amazon Echo. Tim adds that smart homes can be connected together to turn off all lights. This makes it easier to check each room individually.
Tim explains that “Clipsal Wiser(tm), Smart Home allows to save and group favourite settings as Moments’ so it’s easy to dial them up when you need them and tailor them to your home and family needs.” Turn on an ‘entertaining Moment’ when you host guests. It will turn on the hallway lighting and play the party music in the living room. You can also create a movie Moment to enjoy a night on your couch. It automatically dims the lights, adjusts the temperature, and turns on the TV and sound system.
High-quality entertainment and a sound system will transform your living space into a home theatre. For cinema-quality picture quality, mount a smart TV with OLED technology and 8K resolution to the wall. A premium surround sound system with high-quality audio is essential for any entertainer’s living space. To control your sound system remotely from your kitchen or couch, connect it to your smart home app.
