An inspiring smart home

For Australian singer, songwriter and all-round entertainer, Guy Sebastian, tailoring PDL smart technology has turned his new house in the eastern suburbs of Sydney into a dream home.


“I built this house to be an entertainer’s house,” said Sebastian.

Lighting and Mood

Changing the mood with lighting is not a new concept, but Sebastian wanted control of the whole home’s feel, and achieved it through an automation system.

“I love lighting and what it does to the mood of a home. I’m able to adjust the lighting of our whole house, including external lights, with one click of the button. It's those little mood changes that make a massive difference.”

Clipsal's SpaceLogic C-Bus lighting control and automation solution integrates individual components across a home into a single unit controlling every moment of the day.

Ultimate simplicity

The cleverness of SpaceLogic C-Bus means that when Sebastian and his wife, Jules, are entertaining, guests aren’t constantly looking to their hosts if they need to switch on lights or adjust the air temperature.

“We might finish dinner and have put the kids to bed, and suddenly the whole mood will shift according to a scene that I've set up,” said Sebastian. “The music comes on and the lights dim. In winter, the fire will come on.”

Bringing it all together

Think of SpaceLogic C-Bus as the band leader in Sebastian’s home, controlling all things lighting and audio, along with environmental features—like louvres and windows.

These features can be controlled individually or grouped together into user-programmed ‘Scenes’, then switched on or off automatically or with the push of a button.
