Let us take care of the maintenance, repair, and upgrades of C-BUS smart-home solutions

As an electrician, it’s probably fair to say that C-BUS is the bane of your existence. We hear you. And we can help. There are thousands of homes across the Sunshine Coast in desperate need of C-BUS maintenance, repair and upgrades. Proactive maintenance is the best solution. But the need for custom programming, specialised wiring and equipment can make it a real hassle for you.

That’s where we come in. As a Clipsal C-BUS Platinum Partner for home-automation and audio-visual integration, we have the highest level of training to design, supply, install, maintain, and repair all aspects of both commercial and residential automation projects. We can also provide a wide range of smart-home automation and Wi-Fi solutions for new and existing homes.

Together we can share the workload and returns to help homeowners optimise their automations and energy use.
You focus on what you do best… and let us manage smart home automations on your behalf.

Looking for a hassle-free technology partner? Let’s chat about how we can work together to ease your home-automation woes.

The smart-home automation technology partner for Sunshine Coast electricians

  • At Connect Multimedia, we like to keep things simple - our partnerships included.

  • Anytime a builder or homeowner reaches out to you about smart-home automation, that’s when you get us involved. We’ll join you in the discussions with your customer and design a solution to meet their needs. From there we’ll handle the installation and maintenance and pay you a sales commission.

  • It’s completely up to you whether we operate as a contractor or an independent supplier. Either way, we serve you, so you can more completely serve your customers.

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.
