Home automation with the help of modern technology is one of the best experiences that you could give to your entire family. A complete automation system for your home is super convenient, extremely easy to use, and proves to be much more efficient than the traditional set-up of regular homes.
Right from switching on or switching off the lights and other gadgets in the house to securing your homes with the help of smart solutions, installing a home automation system is the way to sustain and stay updated in the tech-driven world around us.
However, there are still apprehensions surrounding this. Many of us believe that a smart home automation system is heavy on the pockets. But this is nothing but a myth.
When it comes to calculating the final costs of installing smart home solutions, one would be amazed at the results that we get and at absolutely reasonable prices.
Costs Associated with Building a Complete Home Automation System for Your Home
A complete home automation solution will involve multiple smart technologies functioning simultaneously and in tandem with each other so that there exists an easy flow. Here are the different ways the entire house can be automated and the costs they will entail:
One of the basic elements of a smart home, smart plugs can make life very easy with their multifold uses around the house. Simply put, they help you control and manage the different plug points without moving an inch, safely from a distance.
Say you forgot to switch off the lights of the balcony and are already tucked away in bed. Who would want to get out of the cozy comfort of the blanket to do so? Enter smart plugs to the rescue! They are connected via wifi and help you control the connected devices through your smartphone, other voice assistant devices such as Alexa or Google Home, or a simple mobile app. They can be easily installed like the normal adaptors which fit on the power socket.
Oakter offers two variants of smart plugs which are OakPlug Mini and OakPlug Plus, with different voltage and support requirements. They can be used to control all lights, switches, TV, music systems, AC, geyser, water pumps, etc. around the house.
Depending on the type of smart plugs you buy, each will cost you between Rs. 1000-2000.
While the transition to smart technology feels great, but what does not feel so good is the need to find multiple remote controls to switch on/off different devices. Handling so many remote controls is cumbersome and wastes precious time in finding them. If you have elders in the family, they may face a hard time remembering the functioning of different remotes too.
To solve this issue, there is a universal remote that can single-handedly control all the devices at home be it TV, AC, home theatre system, etc. OakRemote is one such universal remote which makes life easy. It can be used with most of the set-top boxes and works via a USB adaptor with the help of wifi.
Oakremote is available in the market at a cost of Rs.2490.
An indoor CCTV camera is a great solution for maintaining the security of your home, even when you are not at home. From keeping a check on your kids safety to making sure there are no intruders in your absence, an indoor camera will give you good quality HD video. Oakview by Oakter is a smart wifi camera that offers night vision and motion detection along with a 100 degree wide viewing angle to help you keep a record of every moment. The camera can be operated from Oakter’s mobile app too.
These smart security devices will cost you less than Rs. 10,000.
An automatic water controller is one of the best smart devices available in the market to keep the water usage in control. The device automatically switches the pump on or off depending upon the level of water in the tank and minimizes human effort. There is no need to keep checking the water tank and manually switching the pump on or off every time. Tankbolt is an automatic water controller by Oakter that comes inbuilt with ultrasonic sensors that send signals every time the water level goes below the desired amount, resulting in the pump switching on and similarly helps the pump to get switched off automatically when the water level is filled to the maximum.
A home automation system must consist of this smart device in order to use water sparingly, in a smart manner. The product is available at a price of Rs.6490 in the market.
Automatic Hand Sanitizer Dispenser:
The pandemic of coronavirus has completely changed the way people maintain hygiene. There is an increased usage of sanitizers in order to combat the spread of the virus, resulting in widespread awareness about hand sanitizers and the need to use them multiple times of the day. An automatic hand sanitizer dispenser is a better way to sanitize one’s hands than the regular sanitizer bottles which are used traditionally.
OakMist is the automatic hand sanitizer dispenser by Oakter which is completely touchless and is extremely user friendly. One simply needs to place their hands under the sensors and the required amount of sanitizer dispels on its own. The dispenser comes with a capacity to complete 1000 cycles without needing a refill. The product comes in various sizes and is priced between Rs. 2950-9490.
OakMist Plus is a commercial variant that is already being used at airports, many private and government offices, banks, shopping malls, temples, hospitals, and even at the offices of our honourable ministers. It is perfect for housing complexes as well. OakMist Mini is more compact and portable and ideal for homes or office cabins.
