The Problem

There has been an increase in burglaries in your area and you are concerned about the fact that you work late nights and the house is often left dark and unattended. You want to ensure that your house looks the most "lived-in" in your street. You are also reluctant to hard-wire any complex automation system as you may be moving house next year. What do you do?

The Solution

By installing a couple of items from Campad Electronics, you would have complete control of your lights and appliances within your home and would be able to set multiple commands to fool anyone into thinking that your home is occupied. For example, you may want the living room light to come on at 7:00pm, followed by the TV coming on at 7:30pm, followed by the bathroom light going on at 8:15pm, and off 5 minutes later, you may want to turn the TV off at 9:00pm and the radio and light in the bedroom on at 10:00pm. You can vary this schedule for every night of the week if you require, and really give the impression that someone is home.

Description and Cost

The beauty with our home automation range is that it can all be controlled over your existing house wiring and can be set-up at your computer - although you do not need to keep the computer turned on to allow these actions to take place. There is no need to call out an electrician to install anything as it can all be done by simply plugging in the modules and installing the software on your computer. For this scenario, the only items needed are:

The 7 Piece computer kit, consisting of:
1 x 8-in-1 remote control including Home Automation control - $52.80 value
1 x PC Interface including software - $149.60 value
1 x Appliance Module - $63.80 value
2 x Lamp Modules - $127.60 value
1 x Socket Module - $35.20 value
1 x Transceiver Module - $68.20 value
The total value of these items, if purchased separately, would be over $500, but when purchased as a kit, the price is well under $400.
