Homely Colaba Residence Retrofits Alexa, a Universal Remote and a Security System


Smart Security




What if you have already renovated your home, but now want to make it smart? Are there any solutions for this? We faced this very challenge in this two bedroom Colaba apartment. Our clients wanted to combine all their Audio/Video solutions on a single remote. Also, they wanted to control, and stream music to different rooms in their house through their smart phones. A variety of new smart lock solutions are populating the market. Our clients felt like carrying keys was a thing of the past. Hence we realized, a universal remote and smart security was just what this family needed.

The addition of Alexa, a universal remote and smart security was a success. This residence proves you can enjoy the benefits of a smart home and still use wireless technology with a good Home Automation system and a strong network to enjoy the same benefits which wired smart home products provide. The family has been thrilled with the upgrade. They are hoping to add new devices in the near future by automating their lights and fans and adding a Doorbird Smart Video Door Phone.
