The Rise of Smart Home Technology: The Future of Living

In this age of technological advancement, our homes are becoming smarter, more efficient, and more connected than ever before. Incorporating smart home technology into your custom-built home is not just a trend but a step towards embracing the future of living. From enhanced convenience and comfort to increased energy efficiency and security, smart home technology offers a multitude of benefits. This article will explore the possibilities and advantages of integrating smart home features into your new home with ZAC Homes, many of these features are available through our supplier partners at HPM/LeGrand.

Enhanced Convenience and Control:

Imagine controlling your lights, thermostat, security system, and entertainment devices with just a tap on your smartphone or a simple voice command. With smart home technology, you can effortlessly manage and automate various aspects of your home. Whether you want to adjust the temperature, dim the lights, or play your favourite music, smart home devices provide unparalleled convenience and control, allowing you to personalize your living environment to suit your preferences.

Energy Efficiency and Sustainability:

Smart home technology can significantly contribute to reducing your environmental footprint. From LeGrand’s MyHome temperature control units that learn your preferences and optimize energy consumption to their Netatmo automated lighting systems that turn off when not in use, these technologies promote energy efficiency and help you save on utility bills. Additionally, monitoring devices can provide real-time data on energy usage, enabling you to make informed decisions about energy conservation.

Enhanced Security and Peace of Mind:

Your custom-built home deserves the highest level of security. Smart home technology offers advanced security features such as smart locks, surveillance cameras, motion sensors and even a smart weather station that can be accessed and utilise voice control. Receive instant alerts on your smartphone in case of any suspicious activity, ensuring the safety of your loved ones and giving you peace of mind, even when you’re away from home.

Integration and Future-Proofing:

When building your custom home, it’s essential to consider future needs and advancements in technology. By incorporating smart home infrastructure during construction, you create a foundation for the seamless integration of new devices and technologies as they emerge. This future-proofing approach ensures that your home remains up-to-date and adaptable to changing technologies, enhancing its value and desirability.

We have just started our building journey with ZAC homes. We have chosen to build with ZAC homes as they have allowed flexibility with the design, resulting in a better usage of the living and bedroom spaces. Other companies had a rigid design which would have resulted in variation fees.


…ZAC Homes kept us regularly up to date with the progress of our home and the job was finished on time, which was very important to us. We are one hundred percent happy with our home and can thoroughly recommend ZAC Homes and their crew to anyone contemplating building a home.

…Firstly I would like to thank the ZAC homes team for the experience that my wife and I have had when making the purchase of an investment property. The professionalism and dedication that was displayed, was by far the best that we have seen or experienced previously.

I can not speak more highly of this local building company. Right from the beginning they have been excellent to deal with…The finishes were very good and any work that I wanted fixed which was minor things was done


Very well managed with no hidden cost or surprises. Workmanship was excellent and very professional


Really pleased with the building process, communication and designs. Would definitely recommend.

The customer service and assistance was superb with quick turn around times and patience with our queries. Everything from initial consultation, to colour selection to hand-over was organised easily and open communication was maintained throughout the process.
