Simplify your life with seamless smart-home integration

Picture this. You wake up in the morning to the sound of your favourite music while the blinds open on another glorious Sunshine Coast sunrise. Over the intercom you nudge the kids awake before you get ready for the day ahead.

You leave your home with the peace of mind that your security system is protecting the house while you’re away.

 

In the evening, you walk in the front door as the lights turn on, the controls set on the TV and WiFi to manage screen time throughout the night. Wherever you go, and whatever you do, your home is programmed just how you like it – from the pool lights to the volume on the speakers and the temperature control in every room.

Your family is safe. Your life is streamlined. And you are saving on the cost of electricity with every automation.

At Connect Multimedia, we provide fully integrated home-automation and audio-visual solutions. We design, supply, install, maintain, and repair all aspects of residential automation projects. With 15 years of experience behind us, we know how to pair smart-home automation solutions with your needs to design a custom, seamless experience for your home.

Are you ready? Book a free consultation to see just how easy it is to go ‘smart’.

Smart-home automation solutions designed for you

What we do is a complex mix of design, installation and maintenance. But for you, the process is simple.
We sit with you to understand your needs… and then we design a solution that is easy for your family to use. 

We’ll install it and give you tips to get the most out of the system. 

And if you need any help at any stage, we’re always just a phone call away.

System design

Bad design is the enemy of smart-home automation. We get it. At Connect Multimedia, we design for reliability and ease of use. Whether we are designing a system around your existing audio-visual equipment, or starting with a blank canvas we will develop a custom design based on your needs.

Simplicity is the key

The key to any great system is simplicity. And simplicity is best achieved when we are involved from the early planning stages. We can flag potential issues with you or your builder before they become barriers to realising your smart-home potential.

When should you get us involved?

The short answer - as early as possible. For new homes and renovations, before the frame stage is the ideal time for us to discuss pre-wiring and the location of your audio-visual equipment. For wall-mounted TVs, speakers and projectors we can work with your builder, architect or electrician before the gyprock goes on to ensure the correct preparation.

Cabling for new homes

A SmartWired® house isn’t a smart-home. What it is is an integrated solution for cabling speakers, phones, faxes, TV, projectors, and security within your home. Installation starts from as little as $1500 but can add significant value to your home.
SmartWired installation is pre-wired during construction. This gives you the convenience and versatility to cover all bases with your speaker, data and TV cabling. As your home evolves you can add new access points within a matter of minutes.

Buyer beware! Most electricians are NOT accredited to install smart wiring.

Connect Multimedia is one of just a handful of companies in South East Queensland with the accreditation and licenses to carry out smart wiring. If you would like advice on how to smart wire your home to integrate your music system, data, phones, Foxtel, and free-to-air TV, contact us on 1300 884 200.

We can advise you on the best wiring solution and design a system that is right for you.

Here are a few examples of the projects we have worked on.

01

Motorised Blinds

For this large home with more than 50 blinds we developed an intuitive touchscreen interface with both individual and group control. Using C-Bus, RTi and Somfy we automated each area, including hard to reach blinds, with the touch of a button.

 

We set the blinds to schedules to track the sunrise and sunset throughout the year. For commonly used scenarios such as “all open”, “all closed” or “afternoon sun” we also created one-touch commands.
When it comes to motorised blinds it’s all about control. And putting that control in your hands.

02

Smart Home Integration

After we worked our home-automation magic, the owner of this high-end Mooloolaba apartment can now manage their security, intercom, front door access control, lighting, music, heating and air conditioning through a single touchscreen.


As the owner leaves each day, there’s no running around the apartment to check light switches and appliances. A simple press of the “going out” button arms the security systems, switches off music, and turns HVAC to lower energy consumption. The lights are turned off, leaving a path to the front door and the phone system is set to activate the answering machine.


Time saved. Peace of mind gained.

03

Multi-room audio visual

Through the powers of AV distribution, we have given this home owner the flexibility to enjoy their favourite movies and sporting events from any room in their home.


We gathered the signals into one area of the home and then combined and conditioned and amplified them so they can be distributed to various destinations throughout the home.


Put simply, our client gets a strong, clear video and sound signal regardless of the source or room they are viewing in.

04

Energy Consumption

Since the minimum 6-star energy rating came into effect in 2010, energy consumption and sustainable living has been a huge concern for our clients.


For this home we set lights to come on at 80% usage to reduce costs, as well as using motion sensors in areas such as stairways. We also connected the home-automation to solar monitoring to maximise the use of the solar gain.

 

To take advantage of the climate, we set the window coverings to open during the day in winter to capture the warmth of the sun and close during the day in summer to keep the house cool.

05

Home Wi-Fi

Gone are the days of needing Wi-Fi extenders to propel your signal from one end of your home to another. And in the age of multiple devices, a fast and stable connection is a must.

For our clients we use carefully selected and placed components. We can also manage the network remotely via the cloud so we can identify issues before you have even realised there is a problem. The network will then either repair itself, or our technicians talk you through the process to get back online again.

Our network designs are unified, integrated and reliable. An absolute must-have in a modern connected home.

Here is what our customers have to say about us

We cannot speak highly enough of the exceptional services Connect Multimedia provided as part of our major home renovation a decade ago. We have continued to call on Connect Multimedia for equipment upgrades ever since and have never been disappointed. The after-sales service provided by Glenn and his team is also outstanding.

We will certainly continue to use Connect Multimedia for future upgrades of our multimedia system and have no hesitation recommending them. Our advice – call Connect. Getting them involved in creating our dream home theatre will always be one of our best decisions!

Tania Scott

We first called on Connect Multimedia when we purchased our dream home on the Sunshine Coast in 2013 to create our home theatre (including streamed music upstairs) and our home network. We really enjoyed that first iteration of our system. We called on Connect Multimedia anew in 2017 for equipment upgrades and the associated reprogramming. Brilliant outcome. In 2020 we called on Connect Multimedia yet again when we upgraded to 4K and gave the home network a make-over. So love 4K. And the new home network is fabulous. Over the years we have also relied on Connect Multimedia for all our maintenance calls. Glenn and his team in our opinion provide high quality, great value, contemporary products. Glenn is a highly experienced senior technician who is across the latest technology. He is pragmatic about product choice: he doesn't push the latest gadget, but recommends products that fit and work with the existing infrastructure. We have found the Connect Multimedia team easy to get along with, always responsive to our needs. It is the go-to company for our home theatre and home network requirements: we wouldn't go anywhere else on the coast. Highly recommend Connect Multimedia.

Chris Lines

We love our Smart Home system that Connect Multimedia put together for us. Glenn's technical expertise and ability to work what we did and didn't need was invaluable during the planning stage of renovating our home. We are so glad we got them involved from the start. The documentation and planning from Glenn and his team meant that the builder, electrician, designer and other trades were all working from the same page. I couldn't recommend using Connect Multimedia highly enough.

Debbie Watson

Connect Multimedia designed and built an Audio Visual system that catered to our specific needs. It is a high quality system that is very reliable and requires very little maintenance.
