How smart could your man-cave be?
Gentlemen: would you like to improve your Coromandel “man cave” ?
Of course you would. After all, isn’t that half the point? It’s not just your rugby, motor racing, golf, tennis (and anytime) viewing area; it’s your ongoing project. It’s the space where you can unleash your inner engine of creativity, ingenuity and occasionally dubious taste in wall art. Whether it’s a modest corner of your garage, or a fully customized sports bar at your bach, planning improvements will always be part of the fun.
So how about automating your man cave? It used to be that a project like this was the preserve of programmers and millionaires, but things have changed. Today, you can have a fully automated man cave, controlled through a smartphone app, as a side benefit of simply upgrading your home security system to Alarm.com technology, installed by Coastline Security, which interconnects an array of smart devices through your home.
Here are some of the features you could have.
1: Refrigerator security
Your kitchen’s refrigerator may be a free-for-all, but the contents of your man cave’s fridge are yours alone. You can protect your amber stuff with a discreet contact sensor on the fridge door. When opened, it will send you a smartphone alert. You can also customise these alerts so you only get them if you’re not home. Now that’s smart.
2: Automated lighting
With a Coastline Security alarm system in your home, you can make any light or lamp “smart”—even if it’s shaped like your favourite muscle car – by connecting it to a smart plug. Your lights (or neon beer sign) will be responsive to both smartphone commands and automation triggers, such as your man cave’s door being opened.
3: Remote-controlled entry for friends
When your friends come round to see what’s up with your new technology, the first thing they might notice is the new doorbell on your front door. If you think they’ll be impressed when they hear you talking to them through the speaker via your phone, just wait until you unlock the front door and let them in, only to reveal you’ve been on the couch the whole time. If the doorbell rings during Bathurst, you’ll know if the pizza has arrived or if it’s a salesperson who you can send on their way right through the app.
Enjoy the game, the race or any other man-cave event! And when it’s over, you’ll enjoy a smarter, safer home all year round, with monitored home security and all of the benefits of a full smart home. To find out more about smart home security, click here.
