    Home automation – one switch at a time

    If you’ve been thinking about automating your home but been concerned about the cost, there’s now a great reason to take the next step. With new Australian brand Powermesh, you can get the process started one powerpoint or light switch at a time.

    NO extra wiring is required – making installation easier and more affordable than ever.

    The Powermesh range allows you to:

    1. Use your phone for remote monitoring or Google Assistant for voice activation

    You can turn lights and appliances on or off while you’re away from home or the office. For example, if you’ve gone out and forgotten to turn off your air-conditioner or iron, you can do it from your mobile device.

    1. Lock powerpoints to make them child-proof

    Simply unlock the powerpoints when you want to plug in an appliance like a vacuum cleaner. This feature is ideal for homes with young children, childcare centres and some aged care centres where residents need help to stay safe.

    1. Choice!

    With the Powermesh range, you choose which powerpoints and light switches you automate. For example, you can automate the powerpoints for your fridge and/or freezer. Then if there’s a power failure, you’ll receive an automatic warning.

    This function is great for holiday homes or for people who travel regularly, to ensure frozen food is still safe to eat when you return home.

    1. Monitor energy use

    By converting some of your existing powerpoints over to the Powermesh range, you’ll be able to monitor your energy consumption and identify your biggest power guzzlers.

    1. Limit access to power

    In strata scheme common areas, for example, you can use Powermesh for common area powerpoints so only authorised people (like cleaners) can access strata-funded power.

    The Powermesh range of products is gradually being released. The current range includes double powerpoints and single light switches. We’ll advise you in future newsletters as new products join the Powermesh range.

    In the meantime, if you would like to start automating your home or office with these cool products, simply let us know by calling on 0418 442 578 or email info@kuring.com.au

    Things you may not know about safety switches

    A safety switch quickly turns off the electricity supply if an electrical fault is detected. This helps to minimise the risk of electricity-related fires, shock, injury and death.

    In NSW, safety switches are mandatory in all new buildings and must be added if extensions or alterations are made to an existing building. These regulations apply to both residential and commercial buildings like factories, offices and warehouses.

    In QLD & Victoria, it is already mandatory for all rental properties to have safety switches installed. It’s expected these regulations will extend to NSW investment properties in the foreseeable future. So we recommend being pro-active.

    While safety switches should last many years, it’s important to check them regularly because they can stop working. If this occurs, it’s often a relatively quick and easy job to replace the switches to ensure you are safe and compliant again.

    Don’t risk an electrical accident. Check your safety switch is working and contact us if you have any concerns.

    For all your home and office wiring needs, contact Ku-ring-gai Electrical Service on 0418 442 578 or email info@kuring.com.au to arrange a time for us to visit you.
