YouTube Channel

I have a dedicated YouTube Channel where i upload all my videos to. These Videos are informational showing what Home Automation can do for you but also some tutorial videos so that you can create some of the Home Automation yourselves.
For those that need some help then please dont hesitate to contact me as we can provide an install and programming service.

This video best describes what home automation is....

Costs!! Is it expensive?

As with everything this system can be as expensive as you would like it to be. If you decide for a simple security system then it will cost less than £1000 fully fitted, but if you decide to have evrything automated then a typical 3 bedroom, 2 reception room & kitchen can be fully automated for less than £3000.
This would include:
  • Lighting Module
  • Motion Sensor
  • Curtain or Blind Module
  • Curtain or Blind track
  • Home Controller
  • Installation
The other benfit is that being a modular system you can start small and expand the system as budget/requirements change.

Product range available?

There are various different modules available and from different manufacturers so you are not tied to just one company. This is one of the big benefits of Z-Wave technology.
If there is a particular area that needs automating then there is a good chance that we can get a module for that.
Examples include but not limited to:
  • Lighting
  • Heating
  • Cameras
  • Motion Sensors
  • Temperature Sensors
  • Energy Measurements
  • RFID Keypads
  • Secure Locks
  • Curtain & Blind Control
  • Keyfob Controllers
  • List goes on & on....

It is not just Z-Wave the Fibaro can control but we can add plugins to control other technologies.
Examples include but not limited to:
  • Sonos
  • Alexa Voice Control
  • Nest Thermostat
  • IP Security Cameras
  • Televisions
  • AC Units
  • List goes on & on....

Maintenance Schedule?

The beauty about the system is that the only maintenance you need is the regular updates and backups.
As Yorkhire Automation is a registered installer of Fibaro systems you controller will be added to my monitoring system and i am then able to monitor the performance of your Fibaro system and do the updates and backups as part of the service for a period of 12 months after install. Thereafter for a service fee i can continue doing the same.

Is it reliable?

I have been testing this system since August 2015 and it has been a very reliable system for myself. I have many modules and plugins and can assure you that i have had no issues with my system. I have multi-zonal heating system, alarm, curtains, electric gates, sonos, AV equipment etc etc and has been reliable since day 1. So rest assured if programmed and setup correctly you too will have a reliable system.

There is a full 12 months warranty on everything that is provided on completion for your system. The good news, to this date is that i have never needed to go back to a site to provide a warranty repair as it has been the most reliable and robust system. So rest assured you are in safe hands if the need arises.
