Do you want to use technology, but don’t know where to start?

Or are you feeling left behind with all the new tech and want to get back to speed?

Maybe you have personal goals that we can assist you in achieving? Like eventually using that tablet or smartphone that is waiting in your drawer?

Here are some of the many things you can do with your Smart Home:

  • control and automate devices all with your voice around the home, such as lights, TVs or vacuums
  • set alarms, medication and appointment reminders
  • create a shopping list that is directly sent out to a family member
  • ask Google about the time, even at night
  • use your voice to find out the latest news, weather, ASX listing or play your favourite music
  • find out recipes that match with what you have in your fridge
  • call family and friends for free
  • feel less lonely by having conversations with Google
  • plus, so much more!

Additionally, you will receive three visits from a Technical Support Officer to ensure your devices are set up and you feel comfortable with the new technologies.
