More and more of us are looking to make our homes and offices that bit smarter. But that doesn’t have to mean complicated costly technology. For us it means taking the electrical products we use every day and improving them to make your home or office more comfortable, convenient, and secure.
At Link2Home, we make products that are attractive, helpful and easy to use and our app enhances this experience.
What if all the devices in your home could connect to the Internet? Not just your smart phone or tablet but everything: Speakers, lights, doorbells, cameras, sockets, window blinds, appliances, heating, alarms, you name it. And what if all those devices could all communicate, send you information and take commands all under one application. It’s not science fiction: it’s the Link2Home solution and it is becoming a key component in home automation and smart homes.
Smart home is not just about turning your lights on and off through an application, a truly smart homes focus is on home automation. Home automation does exactly what it says: it is the ability to automate things around the home or office at the push of a button, voice command or better yet automatically. There are many smart home product solutions available on the market but what there is not is a one app solution for everything that brings it all together and allows your devices to interconnect and talk to each other. This is where Link2Home’s focus lies in bringing everything together under a one app solution and enabling smart automation without serious investment of time and money.
Control your Link2Home devices, switch on and off your sockets, see inside and outside your home with our cameras, control your environment with our lights and receive alerts from our doorbells and never miss a visitor. Receive notifications on your phone or tablet whenever motion is detected from an applicable device.
Link2Homes, smart function and the location of your phone allow you to do the right thing automatically, turning on the lights when you arrive home using your location, send alerts through the app and via text when motion is detected and much more.
The Link2Home smart function is split into two categories. The first we call ‘tap-to-run’. Using this mode, you can create quick one touch short cuts to a series of events. These events are then added as a shortcut to the home screen. The 2nd smart function is true automation where you can create events to control devices that are activated by external triggers. These triggers include:
Inter device synchronisation – activate one product feature when another product feature is activated. Such as a camera device detecting movement and then turning on a light.
External environment triggers are split into two categories. Under weather you can link changes to temperature, humidity, weather, sunrise/sunset and windspeed. Under location you can link changes to arriving or leaving a specific location.
Finally using schedule, you can create multiple timer settings across specific days.
Easy to use
Set up of our devices is simple and quick. Our plugs and lamps use WiFi and BLE connectivity which means when you open the box of your new device and plug it in and open your Link2Home Pro App the device will recognised automatically without any menu or button press. This means set up can take as little as 10 seconds. Other set up methods for video devices are easy to follow with on screen instructions where set up takes around 30 seconds.
All our smart products are fully integrated with Amazon Echo and Google Assistant. Turn your lights or sockets on and off through voice and if you have an Amazon Echo Show or Google Screen device including Google Chromecast. Just ask your smart speaker to access your camera device by saying “Alexa show me the driveway” or “Hey google show me the garage on the living room TV”.
Brand and packaging
Our name ‘Link2Home’ tells you what we do, and our packaging solution carries this messaging forward. Easy to understand and display products with bold colours and feature ICONS all presented in shelf ready packaging. Inbuilt installation guides through the application allow for easy set up as well as two-way messaging service where you can report bugs, suggest new features and get network diagnostics.
