EADT Suffolk - - Technology -

WITH our lives be­com­ing more and more con­nected, it would only seem ap­pro­pri­ate that our homes fol­low suit, and an award­win­ning com­pany that can help you with this tech­no­log­i­cal trend is Union Sys­tems Ltd.

Based at Brightwell Barns near Ip­swich, Union Sys­tems, which is a fam­ily-run com­pany, spe­cialise in in­stalling all the emerg­ing ar­eas of smart tech­nol­ogy such as home net­work­ing, au­dio vis­ual so­lu­tions, au­to­ma­tion and con­trol, among other ser­vices, all de­signed to help you cre­ate an in­tel­li­gent home that learns from the way you live.

Why is this im­por­tant? Well, ac­cord­ing to the ex­perts at Union Sys­tems, smart tech­nol­ogy and au­to­ma­tion are rev­o­lu­tion­is­ing the way we in­ter­act with the spa­ces we live, work and so­cialise in. From voice au­to­mated de­vices that we’ve seen on the ad­verts to more ad­vanced sys­tems within our smart­phones, it seems the trend is mov­ing to­wards the world where ev­ery­thing can be ac­ti­vated with lit­tle more than just the sound of our voices.

Although, a wide num­ber of prod­ucts are com­ing onto the mar­ket, Union Sys­tems warns that sim­ply buy­ing a voice ac­ti­vated speaker, a smart ther­mo­stat, some smart light bulbs and down­load­ing a bunch of apps is not the an­swer, as its team are find­ing that home­own­ers are look­ing for a truly smart and con­nected home to match their con­nected lives, one that seam­lessly en­hances their life, not com­pli­cates it.

So how can you achieve this sim­plic­ity? It’s sim­ple as Union Sys­tems has re­cently an­nounced the launch of the brand new Won­dr­wall sys­tem, a rev­o­lu­tion­ary new in­tel­li­gent con­trol and au­to­ma­tion sys­tem for the home­owner mar­ket – de­vel­oped by the home au­to­ma­tion ex­perts, Won­dr­wall.

This brand new tech­nol­ogy is set to “shake up the world” of home au­to­ma­tion and con­trol and drive down the cost of cre­at­ing a truly in­tel­li­gent mod­ern home, Union Sys­tems claims. Pow­ered by Ama­zon Alexa, this voice­ac­ti­vated, sim­ple to in­stall sys­tem can con­trol a property’s light­ing, se­cu­rity and heat­ing.

In fact, this clever sys­tem even learns from your day-to-day liv­ing pat­terns and in­tel­li­gently per­forms ac­tions such as grad­u­ally bright­en­ing your bed­room or pre­dict­ing your move­ments to heat and cool a room. It even knows when you have left the house and will switch off heat­ing to max­imise ef­fi­ciency as well as ac­ti­vate the built-in in­truder pro­tec­tion sys­tem.

What’s more, this sys­tem will com­pletely re­place your ex­ist­ing home se­cu­rity alarm and will sup­ple­ment other de­vices such as smoke alarms and car­bon monox­ide de­tec­tors.

The sys­tem is su­pe­rior to tra­di­tional alarm sys­tems in that it uses au­dio sen­sors to lis­ten for the sound of a win­dow break­ing and your smoke/fire and car­bon monox­ide alarms be­ing ac­ti­vated. If this is de­tected, the sys­tem au­to­mat­i­cally ac­ti­vates the pow­er­ful alarm, turns all lights on and alerts the pre­de­ter­mined emer­gency con­tacts be­fore the in­truder even gets into your property.

So if you are look­ing to go on hol­i­day, wouldn’t it be a re­lax­ing feel­ing know­ing that you are con­nected to your home, the lights are con­trolled, the alarm is on and the heat­ing won’t be left on for days when you’ve for­got­ten to turn it off be­fore depart­ing? That bliss­ful re­al­ity could all be­come pos­si­ble if you choose to in­stall the Won­dr­wall sys­tem us­ing Union Sys­tem’s ex­per­tise.
