Smart home automations refer to the integration of smart home devices and its interconnected platforms to control various functions and devices automatically. These automated processes enable homeowners to create personalized routines, schedules, and actions that can be triggered automatically or remotely, enhancing convenience, comfort, and efficiency.

With Aqara, smart home automations are made possible through its connected devices – linked through a Zigbee hub. These interconnected devices can be configured through the various smart home apps such as Aqara Home, Apple Home, and Google Home – to respond to specific conditions or events, such as time of day, occupancy, sensor triggers, or even voice commands.

Smart Lighting

Automated Smart Lighting Control

Automations can adjust the lighting based on pre-defined conditions or triggers. For instance, lights can turn on automatically when motion is detected in a room or when the homeowner arrives home after sunset. Additionally, you can programme most of your lights to be turned off at bed time, leaving some on as a night light.

Automated Air-conditioner Control

Get smart air-conditioner controls using our Aqara Hub M2, enabling you to create temperature automations based on your preferences and daily routines. These automations can be triggered from presence and occupancy sensors, adjust temperature settings based on your configurations, and optimize energy consumption by automatically adjusting cooling when you’re away.

Smart Curtains

Automated Curtains and Blinds

With smart curtains, you can automate the opening and closing of your curtains based on various triggers or schedules. For example, you can set the curtains to open automatically in the morning to let in natural light and close at night for privacy. You can also synchronize the curtains with sunrise and sunset times, ensuring a comfortable and consistent environment without the need for manual adjustments. By automating the opening of curtains in sync with your sleep schedule, you can simulate a natural sunrise, helping you wake up more refreshed and energized.

Smart curtains can also contribute to energy savings by optimizing natural lighting and insulation.

Smart Door Locks

Safety and Security

Automations can enhance home security by integrating motion sensors, door and window sensors, and home monitoring cameras. For instance, when the front door is unlocked or a door sensor is triggered when your security system is armed, the system can send real-time notifications to your smartphone and activate sirens to deter potential intruders.

Smart Home Scenes and Routines

Entertainment and Media

Smart home automations can simplify the control of your home theatre, and the devices in the room. For example, a Movie night automation could dim the lighting of the room, close the curtains, and turn on the TV simultaneously by a single voice command or through our app.
