Home Automation in Christchurch and Rolleston

We take the overwhelm out of home automation in Christchurch and Rolleston.

When you think of home automation systems, do you picture massive pieces of electrical equipment and a correspondingly large price tag? Most people do.

That’s why we are thrilled to be New Zealand Partners for Shelly, who produce the smallest, smartest and most powerful wi-fi switches. They really do provide an amazing home automation solution which is perfect for creating smart homes in Christchurch and Rolleston.


You don’t have to automate the whole house.

The cutting-edge European technology lets you automate only the parts of your home you need to control – even just one light switch! Prices start from $50+GST plus installation for residential homes.

They are small electrical relays which fit in behind your existing light switch to provide automated lighting control. Wifi switches have such an intelligent, tiny design, we’ve taken to calling them PIPs. They really do ‘PImP your switch’.

This single switch, wireless lighting automation is all controlled by a cloud-based, user-friendly interface. Control the lighting in your home from anywhere – simply use your smartphone. Wifi switches are also compatible with Alexa, Google Home, Android, and iOS. With these voice assistants, you can even command the PIPs by speaking.

And they can be programmed for any residential home. Picture this: your elderly grandmother arrives home after dark and unlocks her front door. Automatically, all the lights in the entranceway, hallway, kitchen and lounge turn on. No more stumbling around in the dark.

Or imagine the bright lights in your driveway, garage, and hallway turning on as soon as you ask Google to operate the garage door opener. No more worries about what (or who) is lurking in the shadows. You can now trust that your residential automation services will keep you safe. Just ask your automation electrician how!

How might you use a single switch automation PIP?

Do you forget to turn electrical appliances off? The integrated countdown timer can automatically switch off your fan heater or lights, after an hour, for example. This means that smart homes are safer because you can never leave an appliance on accidentally.

Set a sunrise and sunset schedule, controlling your inside or outside lighting accordingly.

Dim your hallway lights during sleeping hours.

Hop into bed and turn off all the lights in the house with one tap of your smartphone (or tell Alexa ‘all lights off’).

Arrange with your courier driver to phone you at work when they arrive at your house. Remotely open the garage door for them to leave your precious package safely inside and close the door behind them.

Automate your garden sprinkler, even including a sunset timer so you’re not watering in the hot sunshine, no matter the month.

Want to make it appear that you are home when you’re on holiday? Automate the lights to come on in the evening, along with the television or home entertainment (compatible Harmony Remote or similar required).

For convenience and energy-savings, automate your heated towel rail, hot water, heating or ventilation… the possibilities for home automation are endless.

For home, office, farm or factory, the amount of control these single switch automation solutions offer is remarkable.

Remember, for as little as $50+GST plus installation (approx 1/2 hour per item, min 1 hour), we offer home automation installation services. Our trusted automation electricians can now wire convenience, security and peace of mind into your electrical system.
