top notch connectivity
We live in a hi-tech world so the least we can do is make sure our bunnyhomes are #wired to go.
free cat included
As much as we love our furry friends, we’re definitely not giving you a kitten when you move in to a new Craft Collection home, but we are giving you Cat-6 cabling. One of the beauties of building a home from scratch is that we can install it throughout, bringing the very latest, future-proofed connectivity into all the main rooms — so you’re broadband ready and have hard-wired data connections from the day you move in.
So what is Cat-6 cabling and what are its benefits? We’ll try not to get too techy on it:
Cat-6 cabling supports a long list of applications, including voice telephony, data networking (including personal computers, printers, Internet access, and other applications), entertainment equipment (including TV, home theatre, whole-house audio), and home automation equipment (including lighting control and security systems). Before Cat-6 cabling was a thing, these applications were served individually using separate equipment and cabling with no interaction between applications. Cat-6 cabling allows these systems to come together using a single cabling infrastructure.
Entertainment applications, such as streaming video or gaming use a lot of bandwidth. Transmitting uncompressed high-definition video streams can use in excess of 1 Gbit/sec — so some homes need more data throughput than a typical office! Cat-6 cabling can enable this at high speed, no problem.
Being hard-wired has other benefits too. Wireless networks are more prone to interference and, unlike wired networks, can’t supply power to networked equipment. There are also privacy and security issues with wireless networks.
from USB to Wi-Fi
You’ll find at least 7 USB ports built in to the plug sockets throughout every Craft Collection home, making it easier than ever to keep your phone charged close by or plug in all manner of devices wherever you need them.
In fact, we’ve thought of everything when it comes to electrical specifications. With the number of screens per household continuing to multiply, we pre-fit TV aerial points so you can plug in and go in the lounge and bedrooms from day one. So there’s no need to miss your favourite drama or the big game, even on moving day.
You’ll notice our sockets and switches are thoughtfully located too, to make life easier and to make your bunnyhome look nicer too. And we’ve added dimmer switches in all the right places.
‘WISER’ heating system
At bunnyhomes we wanted it to be as easy and efficient as possible for you to make your home warm and cosy. That’s why we chose to install the ‘Wiser’ smart heating system in all our Craft Collection homes.
What makes it so smart? It all starts with the room thermostats. They allow you to set time and temperature schedules for each day of the week, for cost-saving comfort. It encompasses everything a smart device should, including controllability via an app. It enables you to control your heating and hot water from anywhere in the world via your smartphone. And as the system uses wireless heating controls, all functions are only a swipe away wherever you are, making staying in control of your home heating simple.
Beyond the Wiser app, Wiser also works with voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant so you can just ask when you want your heating or hot water adjusted.
