Smart Heating Products

Flexible smart heating devices give you remote access to your home heating system so you can schedule your personal preferences such as temperature and on/off timings. They are easy to use and completely transform convenience levels so you’ll always comeback to a cosy or cool home depending on the season and your settings. Some of our best-selling smart heating products include the Netatmo Smart Thermostat and Netatmo Smart Valves both with installation included when you buy online.

The Netatmo Smart Thermostat offers control over your home heating through the Netatmo smartphone app. You can set up a 7-day schedule on your phone to program precisely when you want your heating to go on and off, avoiding unnecessary energy usage. The Netatmo Smart Valves offer the same great convenience options with the added benefit of being able to choose the rooms in your home you want to heat. By only heating the rooms you need you’ll save energy and minimise wastage.

Smart Lighting Products

Smart lighting products have a multitude of uses, from added security, aesthetics, comfort and safety. Create ambience, warmth or the illusion that you’re in your home with smart home lighting products, such as the Kasa Dimmable or Kasa Multicolour bulbs. Dim the lights from the comfort of your sofa using the smartphone app or your voice with your smart speaker... "Google... Turn lights warm pink!" Our customers LOVE the smart bulbs and they can be great fun for all the family to make environments more interactive. You can also set up a return homelight that welcomes you when you arrive in the dark or use the remote scheduling to activate your lights at certain times so your house appears to have someone home while you’re away.

Smart Security Products

You will be able to fully relax with a smart home security system that can monitor yourhome 24/7. Products like the connected Google Nest Hello Doorbell or the Netatmo Smart Outdoor Camera use a HD night vision camera and motion sensors to monitor who approaches your door around the clock. In the event you need to ward off any unwelcome visitors the Netatmo Smart Outdoor Camera with a siren is a great way to deter any would be trespassers thanks to a loud warning alarm. The Indoor Welcome Camera keeps a watchful eye over your home’s interior when you’re away and alerts you immediately if a suspected break-in is about to happen thanks to facial recognition technology that identifies familiar and unknown faces. Simple Netatmo Window and door sensors can alert you if there is forced entry and as with all smart home security products, alerts will be sent to your smartphone meaning you can respond fast, even when you’re away from home.

Smart Voice Products

Nothing is too much trouble for a voice-activated speaker. With the Google Nest Audio, Google Home, Google Nest Hub or Google Nest Mini, you have the ability to listen to music, ask questions, sync with and control home devices and even purpose as entertainment, voice-activated speakers are a helpful and practical addition to any home. With each having similar smart functionality we’ve detailed out the specification in this handy comparison guide so you can pick the best product for your home.

Smart Weather Products

Smart weather technology can be extremely useful in both indoor and outdoor environments. The Smart Home Weather Station by Netatmo can instantly alert you of any change in your external or internal environment via your connected smartphone or tablet. Additionally, the Rain and Wind gauges are available to measure precipitation and wind speed / direction and help you plan accordingly. We expect these devices to workover time in Ireland thanks to our frequent, changeable and generally very unreliable weather!
