Smart Home & Surveillance Electronics

Increase your home's security IQ with smart home surveillance electronics

Smart home technology has risen in popularity in recent years, as people around Australia and the rest of the world start to enjoy the convenience of controlling appliances, lighting, air conditioning and more from their mobile phone. Well, you can add home security to that list, too. With smart home surveillance electronics on eBay, you can make sure your home stays safe and secure whether you're in bed or out on the town.

What is home automation?

Home automation pretty much means what the name sounds like. It involves automating and controlling electronic items around your home using a simple voice command, pushing a button or setting up a routine in an app. Another good thing about smart homes and home surveillance systems is that they are highly customisable to suit your specific requirements.

Simple setup

The Internet of Things or IoT has made it easier to create your smart home and control everything by voice or remotely using an app on your smartphone. That being said, some equipment like smart lighting and smart sockets, wall switched and plugs will be much easier for almost anyone to set up successfully compared to installation requirements of more advanced gadgets like digital surveillance cameras. So even if you buy equipment online on eBay, don't be afraid to have a professional install it.

Smart speakers and video displays with the help of Google

Powered by Amazon's voice assistant Alexa, the Echo is a Bluetooth speaker that easily integrates with many smart home speakers, hubs, and devices. If you’d rather use Google Assistant, you'll need Google's line of Nest Hub video smart displays or speakers. The Google Nest Hub Max is a bright and attractive looking smart display, whereas the Google Home Max is a big speaker which provides an encompassing sound that truly fills the room.

Home security camera options

The Wyze Cam Pan security camera offers a wide variety of useful features like free cloud storage and time-lapse recording, as well as sound and motion detection. Arlo’s Ultra is a high-tech outdoor security camera with plenty of fantastic features. Not only can the Ultra record and stream video in true 4K or UHD formats, but it also has motion tracking, automatic zooming and full colour night vision mode.
