Smart home checklist 

Electrical inspection

Perhaps the most important component of a smart home are the electrical commodities. These include, but are not limited to smart lights, smart thermostat, home voice assistant, smart door locks and security cameras. Check the condition of electrical outlets, switches, and wiring for signs of wear, damage, or outdated components. Test all outlets to ensure they are functional and properly grounded. Look for any exposed wires or overloaded circuits that may pose safety hazards.

Heating system evaluation

Smart radiators, an evolution in domestic heating technology, offer enhanced functionality and energy efficiency. Similar to smart lighting, these devices utilise internet connectivity for operation. Most smart radiators include a companion app for remote control via smartphones. 

This app unlocks additional features such as precise temperature regulation, scheduling, and timers, surpassing traditional domestic heating systems in performance. With smart radiators, users can effortlessly manage temperature settings with a few taps on their phone, optimising electric energy usage. 

Leveraging machine learning, these systems adjust temperatures based on factors like time of day and external climate conditions. Consult with a professional HVAC technician or energy auditor to conduct a thorough inspection and provide recommendations for optimising the heating system's performance and energy efficiency along with repairing or installing smart domestic heating systems. 

Plumbing Assessments

Smart plumbing is a part of home automation that makes life easier with features like smart leak detectors, water shut-off valves, and AI-powered irrigation systems. Accurate Backflow Testing & Plumbing provides top-notch installation and repair services for all smart home plumbing needs.
