TESTING & TAGGING

Testing and Tagging is the process of inspecting and testing electrical equipment for the safety of your employees and ensuring compliance with Australian WHS and electrical safety regulations and workplace safety. Each year the timely testing and tagging of electrical equipment save hundreds of lives.

The Importance of Testing and Tagging

If commercial electronic equipment is faulty, it can result in several problems that can jeopardise the safety of an employee. Such issues can range from anything such as electric shocks to skin burns or electrical fires.

Identifying faulty electronic equipment can prove to be more complicated than it sounds, which is why hiring a professional electrician to perform testing and tagging is so important. At Adelaide Urban Electrical, our testing and tagging services involve the thorough testing of commercial electronic equipment in the workplace to help identify any existing problems and prevent any further risks.

Home automation and technical solutions under the NDIS scheme

With the availability of NDIS funding, people with disabilities have more options available to them to live more independently. At AUE we understand that living with a disability poses unique challenges and issues and can work with customers, Occupational Therapists and families to install home automation solutions which are tailored to meet people’s situations and abilities. The goal of smart home technology for customers with disability is to create spaces that cater to people’s needs and lifestyles, enhancing independence, autonomy, privacy and
quality of life and change the way people experience and use their home to their advantage. More importantly it enables people to complete everyday tasks with ease, autonomy, and simplicity.

Automation can be operated through the touch of a button or voice activation via a smartphone, tablet, or computer.

Home Safety and Security

Many automated locks have the technology to read fingerprints. Family and friends who visit can save their fingerprints into the system and then use the fingerprint memory to let themselves into the home instead of the homeowner struggling to come to the door. Trusted friends and family will be able to ensure that a door is locked from wherever they are; just by using a smart app on a device such as a tablet or a smartphone. Home automation for customers living with a disability will help them feel safer and more
secure in their homes. During a medical emergency, security systems can be connected to allow a person to access the help that they need simply by just pressing a button on the security system (or phone), someone will be automatically dispatched to the home without having to go through the steps to call emergency services.

The benefits for incorporating security and surveillance features in the smart home network are endless. Home automation systems can connect motion detectors, automated door locks, surveillance cameras throughout the home and can be activated from the mobile before going to bed. We can tailor alerts so you, your family and friends can receive alert notifications anyway you choose!

Automatic Light Controls

Lighting control is a must for people living with disability, this technology allows for lights to be controlled with a remote control or app on a smartphone and present with an excellent
option for those unable to reach light switches or controls. Another useful home automation lighting feature includes motion-sensor lights with the ability to turn on and off depending on if a person is entering or leaving a room.

Automated Appliances

Home automation systems can be used to manage the settings of appliances to be automatically turned off after a certain period. Many potentially dangerous common household appliances can be hooked up to a home automation system including electric blankets, toasters, and stoves. Home automation for those living with a disability can help people feel safer in their homes and ease worry of family and friends.

Medicine Dispensing Devices

Home automation can even be used for medication-dispensing devices. These devices can be pre-set to dispense medication at the correct time and the correct dosage.

Savings and Energy Efficency

The smart home space is more energy efficient as it has precise control over your heating and cooling by a programmable smart thermostat which learns your schedule and temperature preferences. It can then recommend the most energy efficient settings throughout the day whilst taking into consideration the temperature outside. Lights and shades can be programmed to switch to evening mode as the suns sets, and lights can be
automated to turn on and off as you leave or enter a room ultimately saving money on energy bills whilst reducing the homes carbon footprint.
