Home Automation DIY And How I Got Started In Smart Home Automation And Now Control My Home From My Mobile
DISCOVER HOW TO GET STARTED IN HOME AUTOMATION AND SET YOUR HOUSE UP TO NOT ONLY SAVE YOU MONEY BUT BE ABLE TO CONTROL IT FROM YOUR MOBILE DEVICES
Welcome to Simeon Tuitt Online Blog, my personal and business blog with my selfie video updates I make sharing marketing information, home automation, personal and business updates and random audio and video selfie updates.
I have been selfie video updating and selling since way back in 2006, I was one of the first people to put sales video on my listings way back before video sites were about or computers could handle streaming video.
Today though from this page I would like to introduce you to Home Automation and set you on a path to creating your own smart home that saves you money but is also like something straight out of a movie that you can boast about to friends.
We have all seen movies where people get home and the house welcomes them and starts turning on the lights, TV, reading answering machine messages, turning on the heating and all that cool stuff.
Well it is 2015 and all the technology that makes that possible is already here and the only way people will start using it is if it becomes affordable enough for people to start buying to set up, that is what you will learn from me.
MY SMART WATCH CONTROLS MY SMART HOME AUTOMATION WITH VOICE CONTROL
My Smart Home Automation system is something I am always tweaking, improving and adding too, so my latest addition after experimenting is the ability to control my home with a smart watch.
Using my smart watch I can issue voice commands to turn on lights, plugs, TVs, fans, electronics and the heating all from my smart watch.
There isn't even off the shelf solutions that allow this functionality yet and I have it built into my smart home automation because my home automation is completely custom and built for my day to day life.
THE SMART HOME AUTOMATION KIT THAT CONTROLS MY WHOLE HOUSE
Home Automation is not something complicated requiring loads of expensive specialist parts, above is the HOUSE BRAIN or Hub that controls most of my home automation and allows me to turn lights, plugs, TVs, DVDs, curtains and other electronics on and off from anywhere.
It is that simple device that shuts down my house electrical devices when I leave and turns on my TV and living room when I return home and park in the drive.
That one little triangular device can not only give you a very smart home, it can save you on your electric bills by turning things off wen you are not using them and also allow you to turn tem off when you are away from home and forgot to turn off an item that is suckin your electric and increasing your bill.
You will find out about this smart home automation hub and how to get one after you have purchased my introduction to smart hoe automation video.
SMART HOME AUTOMATION OF THE HOME OFFICE I WORK FROM DAILY
Above you can see some smart home automation I have integrated into my office which I work from, just like other rooms in the house the lights are automated and voice controlled.
When I walk into the office I am greeted by the computer and the lights turn on, I am then asked if I would like some music playing, it s the same when I enter the house, except I am also offered a movie to watch if I say no to music.
SMART HOME LIGHTING AND SECURITY SYSTEM ALL VOICE CONTROLLED
Above you can watch a quick video of me voice controlling my home security system I built myself, this is something anyone can do and why you want to start your journey into smart home automation by grabbing my introduction to home automation video.

SMART HOME AUTOMATION TO CONTROL THE LAMPS AND SET THE MOOD LIGHTING
I have all my lights in my smart home voice controlled and that includes my lamps in rooms, so when chilling in the front room I can set mood lighting.
You have know idea how cool it is to voice control the house and watch my friends jaws drop when I show them my latest smart home automation.

I ENJOY SHARING WITH PEOPLE HOW TO SETUP SMART HOME AUTOMATION ON A BUDGET
Smart home automation is something I teach others, I have been doing it for a while and so people know to come to me for a consultation when they want to know how to setup a smart home because I've done it to my own.
MY AUTOMATED HEATING TURNS ON WHEN I HOP IN THE TAXI ON MY WAY HOME AFTER A NIGHT ON THE TOWN SO I HAVE A NICE WARM HOUSE TO WALK INTO AS THE LIGHTS TURN ON
Above you can see a video of my voice controlled heating smart heating that I have built into my smart home automation setup, it allows me to just tell my heating to turn on or off.
My smart heating system already checks the weather, where I am and turns on and off my heating based on that information, but I wanted the ability to voice control the heating.
Since voice activation wasn't a feature of my smart thermostat, I went about creating it myself and now have a voice controlled heating system which would cost about £2000 if I bought an off the shelf one with the functionality built in.
As I keep saying on this site, I custom built my own home automation system with parts from more than one place so you can't just go out and buy a system like mine, it is why this is where you need to start your journey to smart home automation.
If you enjoy socialising and partying and having fun out with your friends as I do, you will know that after a night out in the UK it is usually freezing in town, especially if you went out without a coat.
So my automated heating is setup to turn on as I make my way home, so I never get home to a cold house.
Maybe you're not a big clubber, but you will be able to relate to being out in the cold and being on your way home knowing the heating is off and that it will be freezing when you get in, so home automation allows you to control the house from your mobile.
MY SMART HOME VIDEO SECURITY SYSTEM IS RECORDING 24/7 AND VIEWABLE FROM MY MOBILE ANYWHERE I AM, SO I HAVE COMPLETE PIECE OF MIND WHEN AWAY FROM HOME
My friends are really important to me and I like catching up with them in the week to party, have drinks and hangout, so it's reassuring to know that while out my smart home is being monitored and can be viewed by my CCTV system built into it.
If there was any issues or intrusions while I was out the smart home automation system would e-mail me and upload the footage to a secure location.
MY SMART HOME AUTOMATION CUSTOM BUILT HOME SECURITY SYSTEM NEW ADDITION IS LED LIGHTING FOR INTRUSION ALERT NOTIFICATION
Above is my latest integration into my smart home automation system, now in the video abve you will see me voice control some really cool LED lights in my window, I have LEDs in other locations around the house that I can voice control.
Now as cool as voice controlling the LEDs is, I integrated them for a few reasons, one being my custom built Home Security system. When I have set my Smart Home alarm, my security camera's check for motion as well as my sensors, if any is detected the LEDs now automatically turn on and turn red to signal an intrusion.
So not only do I get an e-mail notification of an access violation to my smart home and video pop up on my mobile to check what is going on, all my lights will turn on, the LEDs will turn on and there is a very loud alert from the system to let the idiot know that the police have been called as well as posting their photo on the internet.
On a daily basis I am constantly testing, tweaking and refining my own smart home automation system and one thing I want to integrate is voice controlled door locks which I can lock and unlock from my mobile from anywhere.
The smart home automation door locks will then be integrated into my home automation system on all the doors and if anyone breaks in, I will have every single door auto lock, so the thiefs only fear is how on earth will they get out.
You can't just pick smart home automation equipment up that does what my smart home automation system does, so this is why I created it.
Above are just a few shots while out having a laugh on the town with my friend and even though I was having fun, I still had complete control over things at home and was able to check the video system from my mobile or tablet computer.
