Frequency asked questions

Does installing smart home mean that I need to have it all set up as part of electrical sign-off?

Absolutely not, our products are like any electrical product – once installed they will be controllable via the switch without the app. Some contractors do like to setup the products, but we find that by having the end-customer set them up they can customise it to their preference. If your contractor wants to set up the app we have a training program, and support team, available to ensure they have the knowledge to do this quickly – a Wi-Fi network with incoming internet will be required in order to do this. 

Does this mean my client will always have to use their phone to control the smart products that I’ve included?

No – most of our products can be controlled traditionally either via the face plate (wired products) or remote control (ceiling fans, strip lights). Many of our products are controllable via voice control as well, meaning there are many different ways beyond the app to control your products. 

Do my contractors need to complete special training to install Grid Connect?

No. Our products have been designed to be installed by any licensed electrician. Our switchgear requires neutral at the switch, with each plate typically 10amp rated. Product specifications can be found per product – contact us for more information. 

My client is building an investment property, should I still recommend smart?

Since our products can still be used without the app, if a client changes their mind about wanting to use smart home – or a circumstance change such as using the property as an investment, the products will continue to be useable long-term. 

Why is there such cost discrepancy across different smart offers?

Setting up a smart range involves a lot of infrastructure to develop not just the product, but the software and application. Most of these costs are up-front, making setting up a smart home range as a supplier quite complex. Many of the platforms on the market, especially in Australia, haven’t had a lot of uptake meaning those costs per unit are quite high. Grid Connect has over a million users across Australia and was specifically designed for mass-adoption; meaning we are ready to scale at an efficient cost. This means that we can offer competitive pricing and a secure, reliable platform to our customers – long-term.
