Smart Home & the Internet of Things
We've loved leading edge technology right from the start of the computer games industry and in our own hospitality business and home we have almost every kind of tech imaginable. We can help you embrace the "Internet of Things" too.
In our hospiatlity business and large domestic property we have comprehensive automation and "smart home" systems and loads of fun gadgetry. We can help advise and install for you any of the following:
Voice Assistants: Want to know which is best? We've used all of them, and have them integrated with our lighting and heating and entertainment systems; so if you want to know who to call, Alexa, Google, Siri or Cortana, call us first!
Lighting: We have automated lighting throughout with external lighting coming on when it gets dark; automatically generates the appearance of being in when you are out and can all be controlled by WiFi and the Internet.
Entertainment: All of our music in our guest house and our private accommodation is under automated control: The radio wakes us up and follows us as we get ready for the day; The radio comes on in the restaurant for breakfast tuned to a local station and automatically changes to more suitable "mood music" after breakfast service and then changes again to suit the evening mood in the bar before turning off overnight.
Heating: All of the heating is individually controllable on a room by room basis, even though there is one central boiler system. We can also see the actual temperatures in all the rooms - ideal for late spring and early autumn when you are wondering whether to turn the boilers off or on. We also have solutions that control the boilers entirely by demand.
Security: as well as more substantial domestic CCTV systems we make use of the latest "Internet of Things" security gadgets that actually can watch and listen in your house and report unexpected movement. They can even detect audio alarms from other devices, do facial recognition and distinguish pets!
Monitoring: With innovative monitoring systems you can keep on top of many potential problems beforethey become an issue. For example we monitor the temperatures of the main pipes of our heating and hot water systems and are able to spot anomlies or signs of potential failures before they even happen. In our guest house we monitor our commercial fridges and freezers.
Weather Stations: If you are interested in weather then we can help you with setting up some of the latest weather gadgets that also include interior air quaity and polution monitoring as well as the latest electronic wind speed detectors that have no moving parts so don't wear out.
