Australians love being outdoors. As a nation, Australia has always tended toward sprawling back gardens and large verandahs: Australian homes are built with outdoor living in mind. If you live in a Queenslander, with their stunning fretwork verandas—or if you simply have a home with a large porch—you've probably considered having a set of outdoor blinds installed.
Outdoor blinds are a great idea for pretty much anyone who enjoys a little outdoor living—and here's why.
Home systems today can be linked to a tablet or smartphone device. This device or app will then become your nerve centre for home management solutions. For example, if you are in the back bedroom on the third floor and the doorbell rings, this could be a big inconvenience. Simply turn to the device in order to see who is there, first. During the evening when you are watching TV and thinking about turning in, use the device to adjust the temperature of a bedroom in preparation.
