Frequently Asked Questions


Q. What is a home control system?

A home control system is a smart cost-effective and convenient way to consolidate control of all the electronics and systems in your home. It allows you to:

- Program Scene: Eg. You can program the lights to come on and the blinds to lift at 6am every morning to wake you up

- Combine control of devices: Eg. you can combine the control of the blinds, lights and aircon to 1 switch on the wall or 1 tap on the iPad, for a good night scene.

- Saves energy: dim lights automatically when not in use.

Automated Lifestyle customizes your desired home control system, for one-room one-element control to whole-home integrated control within your budget.
