Harvey Norman Commercial Audio Visual Automation department is creating a series of videos exploring the world of Audio Visual and Automation products and applications. For the next couple of weeks we will be bringing you a new episode from our 6 part series on everything new technology has to offer & how it plays a pivotal role in how it can breathe brand new life into homes, businesses or developments.

This week, we are going to look at Push Controls by Schneider Electric & all of the smart technology & products which have been heavily featured on Channel 9’s hit show ‘The Block’ & Channel 7’s ‘Better Homes & Gardens’ ‘. We also have a sit down chat with Schneider Electric’s Smart Space Business Development Manager ‘Isaac Kim’ to talk about new and popular smart products currently in and coming to the market and also the roll they have to play in current and future developments being built throughout NSW and Australia.

Our Smart Home design begins with Push Controls by Schneider Electric, the most intuitive, affordable and scalable control system available on market today. Push delivers on the promise of the connected home and Interactive Living. With one simple control, you have the capability to master virtually any device, system or appliance. AV, Music, Lighting, Energy Management, Access Control and Security, are just the beginning. With Push, the possibilities are endless and are only limited by your imagination. Why not add Climate control? Blind control? CCTV?

Once you start to understand the possibilities of home automation scheduling, you can come up with any number of useful and creative solutions to make your life better. Push Controls can deliver a user-friendly system that combines lifestyle advantages with environmental benefits. No need to run from room to room to turn off each light, nor the need to waste power because you forgot to turn off the lights in the room you already walked out of. With a Push of a button activate the ‘All Off’ scene and all lights attached to the system turn off….. Just imagine a world where you can turn all your house lights off from the comfort of your bed or trigger a scene that turns everything off when your car pulls out of the driveway.

By using the amazing geo-fencing technology that is in build into the Environexus Z-Wave lighting system you can turn your air conditioner on when you’re 1 km away from getting home after a long hot day at work? As our electrical bills seem to be constantly increasing with the implementation of Wiser Link by Schneider Electric you will never get bill shock again, Wiser Link allows you to graphically monitor usage and costing of your power. You can set targets of power use and Wiser Link can even email and alert you through the App you when you are nearing your preset target. All of these mind blowing technologies are reality & in Episode 1, we are going to introduce you to them. Harvey Norman Commercial Division (NSW) is an official Light and Room Control EcoXpert partner of the Clipsal/Schneider Electric Businesses.
