What's the difference between a regular Home member, an Administrator and the Homeowner?

The Homeowner has access to all functions. Administrator has access to all functions except the ability to transfer the homeowner rights, delete the home and granting administrator rights to other members. A common member only has access to operate devices, receive notifications (alarm, moment/automation trigger, device added/removed and invite) from a home, configure device settings and schedules.

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.
