Automated Smart Home Lighting Explained

At Connect Multimedia, we have 15 years of experience designing and installing 

automated lighting solutions for smart homes on the Sunshine Coast.

What is Automated or Smart Home Lighting?

An automated lighting solution is a specially designed and installed lighting solution which can be intelligently controlled by a light switch or automatically responds to movent, if your security system has been armed or if you’ve just arrived home.


Bringing the control of all smart home elements like ceiling fans, air conditioning,  lighting, blinds and curtains on to an intelligent switch, simplifies how you use the home and reduces wall clutter.


There are many brands and types of automated lighting. Centralised, Wireless and other lighting systems all have their pros and cons.


Control entire areas of your home with scenes or presets, like: “Goodnight”, “All Off” and “Dining”. 

Automated lighting Makes things a lot Easier to Use.

Automated lighting switches can control any or all lights in your home.

They can easily be re-programmed, without the need to run new wires, if over time you find yourself using the house differently.


Control or monitor your lighting and other systems with a very simple to use smart phone app from anywhere in the world. 


Program daily routines such as lights on at dusk, cooling automatically starts on a hot day, or locking the gates or doors at bedtime.  


You may want automatic dim light levels for late night visits to bathroom, hallways and kitchen. All possible with an automated lighting solution.


It’s about having the technology in your home work for you and enhancing the way you live in your own space.

17yo old C-Bus Automated Lighting System

This video show the simple process of CMM working with the client’s electrician to upgrade a 17 year old C-Bus lighting system. Whilst the system had been working reliably for this time, the wear and tear on the switches was evident and it was time for an upgrade.

Here is what our customers have to say about us

Excellent service, fantastic communication throughout, I would highly recommend their services.

Dan McKay

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 installed C-Bus in 2003 and we decided (in late June 2021) to upgrade to the latest technology. Glenn from Connect Multimedia was responsive and very effective in his explanation of the proposed upgrade. He worked closely with our electrician to complete the project in a very short time. There was no inconvenience. He then returned to tweak the system to ensure the flexibility that this state of the art technology provides.

Stewart & Sue Penny

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. Support is always available and Glenn, the owner of the company is the best and most professional technician I have ever worked with. Steve, Systems Administrator, Maroochy RSL
