WIN Smart Devices for your home with CBI Astute

Why you need the CBI Astute Range  The cost of living in South Africa is skyrocketing, with headline Consumer Price Inflation projected at 5.5% in 2022, according to a recently released forecast by the Bureau for Economic Research (BER). Rising electricity prices, high domestic food inflation and elevated fuel prices are expected to be the key sources of inflationary pressure this year. With this in mind, it is vital for South Africans to save money where they can and become more energy efficient to minimise cost implications. Engineering Executive at CBI-electric: low voltage, Dr Andrew Dickson says that smart home devices are a great solution to assist cash strapped consumers in 2022. “Smart home devices were developed to make people’s lives easier by allowing them to automate various processes in the home via an app.” He adds that these devices can also be used to reduce energy bills and help homeowners become more energy efficient. “For example, geysers, pool pumps and heating use a large amount of energy if they are on for long periods of time. With smart devices such as smart plugs, controllers and isolators, users can monitor and control these appliances as well as schedule them to turn on and off at specific times and on particular days. “Smart devices also allow people to schedule activities such as irrigation systems and when they operate. The irrigation system can be automated to switch on and off at select times. If the App detects a rainy day, the system will not switch on, thanks to its integration with weather services. This not only saves electricity, but water too, which can lower the total municipal bill.”   Our thoughts on the CBI Astute Range Smart Home … Continue reading WIN Smart Devices for your home with CBI Astute
