Get smart by setting up a smart home
Smart locks and entry systems are great for busy families and share houses, and they're easy to install yourself with no door frame cuts required.
Once connected to a bluetooth smart app, they allow you to enter your home with the app and can also send notifications when your family has arrived home safely. Automatic locking keeps things secure whenever you leave home by locking behind you whenever you go out.
If you're looking for an extra set of eyes on your home, a video doorbell lets you answer your door from your smartphone or PC and only takes minutes to install yourself.
They can send instant mobile alerts whenever someone presses your doorbell or triggers the built-in motion sensors. And when you answer the alert, you can see, hear and speak to whoever's at your door.
Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.
