I’m building a new home and have been thinking about installing smart home controls, but my budget is already stretched, and I really don’t think I can afford it…

Having a smart home doesn’t need to be expensive or extensive. With a range of scalable options, Clipsal makes smart living accessible to everyone.

Simply choose the smart home solution that works for you, your lifestyle and budget – whether that be two switches and a few smart sockets, or the whole nine yards. 

Clipsal offers in-home Bluetooth control and full out-of-home control via C-Bus, so you can opt for as little – or as much – connectedness as you like.

Clipsal also offers some clever electrical accessories; start building your smart home with Infrascan Motion Sensors to save energy by never accidentally leaving the lights on. You may also enjoy using timers, time-clocks and dimmers.

On the higher end of smart home solutions, C-Bus gives you the ability to control lighting, irrigation, air conditioning, multiroom audio, windows and blinds, home theatre, home security, keyless entry and more.

My smoke alarm is beeping. What can I do?

The recommended steps are:

  1. Detach the top of the smoke alarm from its base, remove the battery and hold the ‘test’ button until the alarm is no longer beeping. This completely discharges the smoke alarm for a guaranteed reset.
  2. Vacuum the vents.
  3. Spray bug surface repellent on a rag then wipe over the unit and surrounding ceiling.
  4. Hold the test button for 20 seconds which will reset the unit.
  5. If the above fails and it is within the warranty period, you can replace the unit by lodging a warranty form via clipsal.com/warranty (Note: If it is out of warranty, you will need to pay to replace it.)

Remember smoke alarms are there for a reason, so ensure you’re safe at all times.
