Home Automation for Home Security and Central Heating

With technology advances making home automation more affordable many homeowners are opting for ‘smart’ heating and security systems that they can monitor and control themselves whether from work or while they’re on holiday.

While there are many DIY home automation systems available which are relatively easy to install, there’s a lot to get wrong when it comes to choosing the right equipment, knowing how to install it, where to install it and how to set up the monitoring. C Hanlon Electrical can make this process quick, simple and effective with our home automation from providers such as Nest, Hive, and Tado.

What is home automation and how does it work?

Home automation is another way of saying smart heating and home security systems. It’s a series of heating and security devices which are connected via the internet and can include smart thermostats, boiler sensors, wireless cameras, motion detectors, sirens or alarms, locks and sensors which attach to doors and locks. In addition to security devices there are also sensors for detecting smoke, carbon monoxide and water leaks. These can be purchased and installed separately or together.

Once installed, they communicate with an app which can be monitored as alerts, photos or video on a smartphone, tablet, laptop or computer anywhere in the world. With some systems you can also control your home’s heating, lighting or appliances via your mobile phone.

Installing home automation

There are many ‘out of the box’ home automation systems which claim quick and easy installation. Also, not all components could be of value to you with your home’s layout. It’s also easy for non-security experts to install cameras or motion detectors in the right places.

C Hanlon Electrical are experienced in assessing your needs and supplying and installing only the security components you need for your smart home security system. We know what to install and the best installation points to ensure the best possible coverage for your home security.

We will also configure all the components to connect to whatever device you want to use for monitoring.

Mobile phone smart heating control and remote security monitoring

You can now have full control over your home’s heating system no matter where you are in the world.

With a Nest, Hive or Tado smart thermostat, whether you’re at work, away for a few days or on holiday, you can use an app on your phone to set your thermostat to raise or lower the temperature of your heating in the whole house or in just one or two rooms.

Some smart thermostats can save you money on energy bills by learning how long your rooms take to heat up. This enables you to tell the thermostat remotely via your mobile phone when you want your home to be at the desired temperature and the device will turn on the heating at just the right time.

C Hanlon can provide you with everything you need to set up and control your central heating from your phone. We can fit a smart thermostat together with a receiver sensor to your boiler and help you install and learn how to use the app on your phone to have total control over your heating system. The whole process is simple and quick to install, and easy to learn and operate the mobile phone app.

If you have a combi boiler you have control over your boiler and all radiators for total heat control via your phone. Boilers with a hot water tank can also be accessed and controlled on your mobile so you can turn your hot water on and off so it’s ready for when you need it.
