Introducing Niko Home Control at Cottrell Gardens

December 3, 2019

Available at our Cottrell Gardens development, Niko Home Control is a smart home system allowing you the flexibility to control the electrical devices in your home from one central point – and that’s just the beginning!

In this new blog, we will run you through some of the benefits of Niko Home Control and how this state-of-the-art technology can fit perfectly into your new home.

Enabling your home to evolve alongside our rapidly changing lifestyles and methods of communication, Niko Home Control streamlines the control of your electrical devices with a switch, touchscreen or smartphone – creating a more secure, future proof and energy-efficient home.

Switch the lights on automatically
Become more energy efficient with your lighting. With a motion detector, Niko ensures your lighting is turned on automatically and turned off again when there is no movement. Hate being woken up by bathroom lights in the middle of the night? Programme your landing lights to switch on softly at 30% as soon as someone gets up ensuring minimal disruption to sleep.

Music when you want it
Harsh morning alarm clocks might be a thing of the past. Programme Niko to gently start playing music at sunrise for a gentler awakening. What’s more, with the connection to Sonos or Bose installations, the choice of music is all yours to create the perfect atmosphere for your home.

Secure access to your home
Thanks to a video phone at your front door, your touch screen, smartphone or tablet can tell you who is at the door. Activate your alarm system with smart detectors on your windows and doors. If the lights are activated or start flashing you will receive an immediate message to your smartphone, ensuring greater security and peace of mind.

Your future in mind
Easily adaptable to your specific needs, set up automatic messaging so a family member or contact can be notified if needed. The system can adapt with your future in mind and the user is always in charge to easily use and amend the system.

Opt for an energy-efficient home
Niko Home Control ensures your home consumes the lowest possible energy levels. Programme Niko to turn off all ‘standby’ items when you go out or hit the ‘house off’ mode and it will automatically switch them off – saving you money whilst helping the environment.

Design choice
Offering a contemporary choice of finishes, the modern design allows you to match your switches with your home interior.
