Smart Features

For your convenience we have installed various smart devices in the Chalets.

Each Chalet has a HomePod mini made by Apple, An Apple TV, Smart Lighting and at least one smart plug for the heater in the main living room.

We have chosen to go with Apple’s HomeKit setup due to the enhanced privacy features it offers. All commands are processed locally and not in the cloud. You can use this system with confidence and be assured that your privacy is paramount.

Even although the lighting is smart, you can still control them by using the switches on the wall.
