What is a Smart Home?

Smart Homes are a technology based lifestyle solution that will allow you to customise, personalise and interact with your home in ways that have, until now, been unachievable. Visit our Smart Home Experience Centre!

A Smart Home is a home with all or some of its electrical components connected to one central control system often referred to as a “Hub”.

System Designer

Matt Manalis

Matt started his career at the age of 16; he worked as a projectionist back when 35mm film was still a thing. His love for audio/video and electronics grew, and it wasn’t long before he started working part-time in the security/fire industry. By the time he was 18 he was working Mon – Fri as a security and fire technician and weekends/nights as a projectionist. At 19 he was given the opportunity to work as the lead fire technician on a substantial shopping centre project which also led him to be the project manager for Gold Coast airport LCCT project and also led the integration team on a high-rise project in Brisbane CBD. The company he was working for at the time closed their operations in QLD and Matt decided to stay and start his own business. Matt started his business as a security company and started looking for what the next significant advancements in home technology were going to be. It wasn’t long before he realised that smart homes were going to be it. Matt & Brendon teamed up and started Connected Automation. They continued their professional learning with Matt learning all aspects of programming and commisioning while Brendon put his skills to work on the installations. In 2014 they met Regan and merged into the Digital Residence brand. Matt leads the Digital Residence team, and with his technical knowledge and understanding of all aspects of home automation, it is easy to see why Digital Residence is an industry leader and one of the top Home Automation companies in Australia. Qualifications: • Registered Open Cabler • Licensed Security Installer • Certfied RTI Programmer • Certified Control4 Programmer • Certified Dynalite Programmer • Certified C-Bus programmer • Certified KNX Programmer • Certified Leviton Programmer • Certified Innerange Technician • Certified Paradox Technician • Certified Crestron Programmer Contact Matt

Project Manager

Regan Webb

As a hobbyist custom car audio installer, Regan enjoyed pushing the boundaries on creativity and felt great accomplishment bringing to life lavish systems. Word of mouth in this industry landed him his first retail job in audio/visual where he was soon elevated to management. This new inventory to call on meant new designs and customisation on a greater scale… the whole home! With the drop in price and increase in size of plasma as well as LCD screens, the sales volume of each soared. The increase in sales created a niche in the market for their installation. Late in 2004 Regan made the move from retailing to running his own business providing installation to the JB HiFi chain. Installation soon became custom installation and before too long the whole home was target to Regan’s designs. Electronics became smarter and integration to whole home control solutions was essential. After trading for a few years catering to this combined work load of retail chain install plus custom home integration it became apparent that expansion was crucial. Now with a team of 12 and catering to the residential and commercial industries the business is growing again. Regan recently has moved from project management now to client liaison. Contact Regan
