Are Smart Homes the ‘New Build’?

An overall look at homes with intellectual technology

(That’s somewhat smarter than man!)


Those were the days when calculators were in our kids’ school bags and not Iphones…

Those were the days when we wrote everything by hand from an overhead projector in classrooms and not research the internet using our laptops.

Oh, how things have changed in today’s modern world. Most of our everyday items used by mankind is automated, compact in size and a whole lot smarter. Smarter than mankind, actually!

So, what is it that’s starting to make our lives easier?

Well, seeing as we are JHS Blinds and Screens; let’s take Blinds for example.

Most owners that are building new, luxury homes are requesting more information for Roller Blind Installations that come with automation. Automated Roller blinds are getting much more attention due to their ease of lifestyle concept and enviousness.

Some “Smarty-Pants” facts:

According to Telsytes Technology analyst firm, Australian households will be looking at having more than 37 connected devices by the year 2023. While, at the end of 2018, the average Australian household had 17 connected devices, mainly made up of smartphones, computers, tablets and other gadgets. While, their latest digital consumer study has found “convenience” is overtaking price as the number one factor for purchasing “smart” goods.

More than 40 per cent of homeowners’ budgets is set to be spent on improving energy efficiency. One of the items are Automated Blinds. Motorised Roller Blinds boost the energy-efficiency of your home in two ways, insulation and light control. By setting your motorised blinds to open and close at different times, it means less reaching for the light switch. Less energy, less expenses. Smart isn’t it?

Why is JHS so smart?

JHS Blinds and Screens offer motorised Roller Blinds, most of which are powered by Somfy, and also some that can be operated by Battery power. Using battery operated automated roller blinds can also decrease your energy bills. Depending on the usage of opening and closing your blinds you may need to recharge the Batteries once every 4-6 months. Another reason to automate your home with JHS Blinds and Screens

Have you recently purchased a double storey home that isn’t too smart yet?? You can still enjoy the benefits of hands-free Blinds. Yes, battery operated. We thought you would never ask!

Consumers these days that purchase homes built without automated blinds tend to go for the Battery-operated Motors – Somfy of course… In saying that, you won’t need to disrupt any clean walls with holes and wiring.

Your home is so smart, it will sell itself!

The technological smart-home concept can bring another benefit for homeowners that are looking to sell their home. Because of the expected rise in 2021 to 1.6 million households implementing Internet technology, more Australian homeowners are making the decision to invest in smart wiring. Real estate feedback has agreed that implementing smart home factors does deliver that ‘wow factor’ to potential buyers. It creates a point of difference that makes your home stand out from the rest. Automated blinds can help to drive sales by adding value and making properties more appealing to buyers.
