Directors at Bridgend-based Celtic Electrical have launched a new business offering home automation. LEAF, which will be based from new offices at Miskin Manor Business Centre, has appointed Darren Henson to head up the business.
“We are excited to launch LEAF and welcome Darren Henson on board,” said Lee Powell, Managing Director of Celtic Electrical and LEAF. “This is the future of home and office control and is available at reasonable costs. There are very few companies in Wales offering this level of service and quality of product.”
Powell continued: “Home automation controls heating, security systems, multimedia systems and lighting automatically or remotely via your smartphone or tablet, meaning you have complete control over your home or office even when you are not there.”
Darren Henson, who has been appointed as Business Development Manager, spoke of his delight at joining the new venture: “To join such an intriguing and cutting-edge business at its early stages is too good an opportunity to turn down. I’ve already learned a great deal, and due to the technology being so new, there are developments almost on a weekly basis – making this an opportunity to change how people power their properties and how it dictates modern life.”
Mr Henson continued: “Everything can be controlled from an app on your phone. Using home automation will save on energy bills, improve security measures and implement safety features.”
“As our lives are getting busier, automation can play a big part of making our lives easier.” said Powell. “Home automation means that you can turn on the heating when you are within a certain distance from home or office, it can turn on the coffee machine as you get out of bed, you can check to see if the iron has been left on. You have the power to turn these utilities off and on from your phone. It can imitate your lighting to work in a sequence when you are on holiday so that it looks as if there is someone at home.”
