Frequently Asked Questions

I want to install smart home controls, but I’m worried that my less tech savvy family won't be able to use the system or even work out how to turn the lights on…

The beauty of smart controls is that they’re smart for you. The Clipsal Iconic switches and powerpoints only require ‘tech-savviness’ when you need them to, otherwise they just operate like normal. Also remember that you don’t have to automate every aspect of your home, just the areas where it will make the largest impact. Consider scheduling the porch light to turn on automatically for those who regularly come home after dark, or automatically turning your heated towel rail and bathroom fan on between certain hours. 

One of the golden rules when it comes to smart home controls is to keep it simple.
