Can I upgrade an existing or older home with smart home technology?
Yes you can. The Silux Home system has been developed to integrate with your existing infrastructure. For most devices, you simply cut your electrical wire and reconnect through our device. This is a lot easier than it sounds and all instructions will be available with each product as video and written manuals. The other devices will be plug-and-play.

Yes. Although the term “Smart home” has become a common term, we prefer the term “Lifestyle automation”. As long as you have electrical appliances, your Silux Home system will be capable of integrating with them.
