econnecx™ is a New Zealand developed and supported, affordable smart home and office automation and security system. It has been designed to make homes and offices smarter, more energy efficient, secure, and simpler to use.

Automation has existed in homes and offices for decades in the form of sensors and timeclocks providing basic control of light and some heating appliances. More recently you can now get smart phone apps for some specific appliances.... so a typical modern home could end up with 3 – 4 timers, alarm sensors, light sensors and a couple of phone apps.

An econnecx™ smart home provides one simple solution for your home or office allowing you to customise the environment to suit your lifestyle, or control from anywhere.

With our smart phone app, a typical econnecx™ smart home provides security, heat pump or gas fire control, control of hot water, towel rails, under tile heating, ventilation, outdoor security lighting, night lighting, garage doors, automatic gates, door locks, blinds and windows.

Installation is simple as econnecx uses conventional wiring methods, no training is required to configure however onsite trade support is available for those who want it. We offer design and pricing assistance.
