Smart homes are trending in 2018 and there’s no smart home accessory more in vogue right now than home automation. For those that are still learning about home automation, there’s a lot to say on the topic. To begin with, home automation provides a homeowner the opportunity to automate certain processes in their home.
Home automation may or may not include smart locks and door bells, security and access, monitoring devices and motion sensors, lighting and appliances, and more extensive controllers and kits. If you’re just starting out with smart home gadgets, beginning with a home automation controller and kit is a great way to get started.
The best-selling home automation kit in the Prime Cables catalogue and one of Canada’s favourites is the Orvibo® Wireless Smart Home Security Kit w/ Motion Sensor, Door Window Sensor, Camera and ZigBee Hub which is available today for only $149.00. This kit comes with everything you need to get going with home automation and can be the first big step you take towards building a smart home.
