YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO TO MARS TO GET THE BEST TECH...
One thing none of us can do without. The backbone of all home automation systems is the lighting control. When incorporated into different scenes, lighting will create mood and ambience. Whether you have some friends over for a braai and football or just a romantic “stay-in”, you can create the perfect setting with the push of a button on your touch screen, tablet or smart switch. Walking into areas like the garage, pantry, scullery or store room will automatically switch the lights on when movement is detected by the integrated security motion sensors. Upon exiting the area, lights switch off, saving you money. In corporate environments lighting and light levels are governed by legislation & here also an automation system is indispensable. To achieve energy savings, lighting is automatically adjusted to provide only the specified light levels by means of light (lux) level sensors. This means that lights will dim when enough ambient light is available and brighten when it becomes dark outside. In addition, motion sensors are also used to only switch lights upon detected movement of people.
Security & Access Control
Can you put a price on your family’s safety? Olanna Technologies uses only a selected range of top-quality professional security systems as part of your home automation package. These selected alarm systems all have dedicated interface modules that allows seamless integration to the automation backbone and the rest of the electronic systems.
These modules will ensure fully fledged security features as expected from a professional security panel. In addition, it will provide the interface that can utilize the motion sensors to activate your lights and cameras.
Push notifications of alarm events can be sent straight to your phone. This will ensure that you are informed when any condition at your house occurs, that you want to be notified about.
Voice announcements can also be made by the security system over the whole-house distributed audio system’s speakers. This can notify you in advance of any trespasser lurking around on your property.
Integrated intercom and access control devices like biometric readers provide another layer of security to the modern household.
Seeing is believing. As with our entire range of products, we use only the best quality surveillance cameras available, without breaking your budget.

Audio & Video Distribution
Gone are the days of Granny’s old portable radio in every room. Modern smart homes almost always also feature distributed audio and video systems. The addition of speakers throughout the home ensures that music can be streamed to every area of the house easily and independently. A variety of different sources like your favourite radio station or your own music on your iPod can be listened to in any room of the house. This is selectable by means of a control device in the room or your iPad, allowing you to control the music.
Music streaming via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or from the internet is also standard practice nowadays, with a myriad of streaming services like Spotify, Deezer or TuneIn.
No more listening to the crappy speakers on your TV. The distributed audio system will route the TV’s audio through the speakers in the room, allowing you an unforgettable listening experience.
