Building, renovating or
improving your home?
If you’re building or renovating there’s one area
that you really can’t afford to overlook, and
that’s electrical. Plan for the future and make
sure that your home is specifically tailored to
your needs. Sometimes the little things can be
the most important. By installing everything you
may need now, you’ll save money, mess and a
lot of headaches down the track.
Take control!
The ‘Essential Checklist for Everything Electrical’
takes you on a tour of your new home or
renovation before it is built. Inside, you will find
smart ideas and electrical products for your
home. It comes with a handy Project Planner
that you can take to your Clipspec® Consultant
(refer to page 89) or electrical contractor, and
work through your ideas. Your consultant will
also offer some advice and further suggestions
that will help you customise your home to best
suit your lifestyle.
Clipsal Australia would like to acknowledge and thank both
Serenity Homes for the generous use of their "Soudai" display
home images, and Ian and Sue Mawby for the use of their
penthouse at "Aqua Apartments" for portions of the photography
in this Essential Checklist.
Steps to electrical success

your electrical requirements without
blowing the budget. This Checklist and
Planner will help you install exactly what

Clipsal Infrascan should feature in every home.
This is ideal when you come home at night. It
will light up the driveway so you don’t trip over
things in the dark, welcoming friends and
warding off intruders throughout the night. The
light can be either fluorescent or incandescent.
Arguably the best sensor light money can buy
due to its superior electronics and weatherproof
construction, the Infrascan is fully adjustable
for light level, sensitivity and time. It also has
provision for up to two flood lamps.
Clipsal’s famous Infrascan motion sensor is
an essential part of any security system. The
moment anyone enters the Infrascan’s detection
field, the infrared sensor reacts to the body heat
and turns on the light.
Digilant
10 Clipsal
A great addition to your home’s overall
security solution is the Clipsal Digilant® range
of surveillance cameras. If you become the
unfortunate victim of a break-in, the Digilant
will capture and store images during the event,
which can then be retrieved and given to the
authorities to aid in capturing the wouldbe thieves. Digilant can be used as a cost
effective stand-alone alternative to CCTV, or
can be integrated to work with your Clipsal
&
HomeSafeTM Security System. This amazing
camera can function for up to six weeks on
batteries alone and store around 60,000
images. Nothing beats Digilant!
Entry
11 Keyless
Once you’ve enjoyed the convenience
and protection of keyless entry to your car,
you’d never go back. The same is true for
keyless entry to your home. A convenient card
or keyring unit is used to activate entry that can
also be networked to your security system.
Home Security
12 Complete
The Clipsal HomeSafe™
Security
Pack is designed to cover every base in the
fight against rising break-ins. Complete with
detection devices, motion sensors, battery
backup, LCD keypad, audio and visual alarms
and a telephone dialler which can alert any
security monitoring station and call any land line
or mobile phone to alert you to the situation.
Ask about how the HomeSafe System can be
upgraded to include special features like a panic
button that can switch on all the lights, sound
an alarm, or even alert a security company.
HomeSafe really is the smart and flexible way to
protect your family’s home and belongings.

FAMILY ROOM
Without a doubt, the family
room is the centre of all your
homelife. It caters for many
diverse activities. Sometimes
it’s a place to work, but more
often it’s a place to relax,
entertain and be entertained.
Each of these things needs to
be lit and powered differently.
Take watching TV for example.
Usually the lights are dimmed
and the curtains are drawn,
however we could just as
easily be watching the TV

The first step to networking your computer. Many

Data sockets can therefore be used to connect

With the introduction of broadband you can

phones has improved, you can’t go past the
clarity and security of the ‘hard wired’ option.
For truly flexible ‘connectivity’, all data, phone

Believe it or not, you can save hundreds of dollars a year by being
energy smart. Heating and cooling can account for up to 40% of
electricity costs. Insulation, keeping windows closed and using
shade are all good ways of saving money. You should also make sure
thermostats are not set too high or too low (20°C in winter and 25°C
in summer). You can also switch appliances off instead of leaving
them on ‘stand by’.
The Clipsal range of energy efficient products can help the
environment, improve your surroundings, and best of all, save you
money. The larger the home, the more generous the savings can be.
With some products, the savings may seem small, but with a little
effort in a number of areas, the savings can add up.
Clipsal Australia’s commitment to the environment is demonstrated
in the vast range of energy efficient products offered to market. Facts
about Clipsal Products

SAFETY
Circuit Protection
1 Clipsal
is famous for Safety Switches, an
innovation that saves lives. What happens
when electricity meets a frayed cord, a faulty
appliance or an inquisitive child? Accidents
happen. Nobody plans on being accidentally
electrocuted. However, you can plan to protect
yourself from electrical hazards and there is no
better protection than a Clipsal Safety Switch.
Although compulsory when a new home is
built it pays to check if your existing home is
covered. The famous Clipsal Safety Switch
has been saving lives since the ‘70s. The wellknown switchboard version offers protection to
every powerpoint in the home.
Safety Switch
2 Did
you know that Clipsal have also built
safety switches into some twin power outlets?
These are perfect for existing homes. Although
one safety switch is compulsory in new homes,
it is smarter to use separate safety switches for
each circuit. That way, one incident doesn’t
cut the power to your whole house and
plunge you into darkness. Insist on a Clipsal
Safety Switch - it’s a proven product,
guaranteed to save lives.

(even your bedside lamps) when you enter your
bedroom, and switch them off after you hop
into bed. No more dashing across in the dark.

that they are not in the most convenient place.
They then have to resort to messy looking

expense of having an electrician install more
powerpoints in newly finished walls. Make sure
you plan ahead!

BREAKING DOWN THE
So what does having a ‘smart home’
really mean?
With so much confusing terminology
being used these days, and so many
products and options available to
new homebuilders and renovators,
it’s easy to see why some people
can become overwhelmed. Well,
put quite simply, smart home living
is really all about enhancing your
everyday lifestyle. It doesn’t have
to be hard or complicated; it’s just
a matter of thinking about the things
you enjoy in life and allowing for some
flexibility in the future.
Find out how easy it is and get some
handy hints in the following pages.

Prepare your home for
whatever the Internet
can throw at it.
Like most homes these days, if you have more
than one computer, use the Internet or an
Internet gaming console such as a Playstation
or Xbox, then your new home wouldn’t be
complete without networking your home.
Networking allows you to connect multiple
computers together from different rooms to
share information and peripheral devices such
as printers. However, easily one of the most
convenient advantages of networking your
home is the ability to have multiple people
connected to the Internet at the same time, in
different rooms, on different computers.
This means the kids can be researching their
homework assignment while mum does the
Internet banking and dad checks the latest
sports results. By having the ability to do all this
simultaneously, it means the family can spend
more quality time together and no more fighting
over who gets to use the computer.
TIP: Any data outlet
within the home can also
be a telephone outlet.
Ask your electrician
about the flexibility to
change your telephone
outlets to locations that
suit you, as it’s a great
feature to have.

‘SMART HOME’ MYTHS
Smart home Solutions to
Fit Every Budget
Clipsal believe that everyone should enjoy the
convenience of affordable modern technology
around the home. For this reason Clipsal have
developed practical home networking and
integration solutions to suit every budget.
Clipsal’s fantastic range of smart home solutions
cater for individual requirements and specific
needs, so there’s bound to be a networking
solution to make your home a smart home.
To make your life easier Clipsal have created
three individual smart home solutions.
Clipsal StarServe®: The Clipsal StarServe
home networking package is full of features
and is easy to install without the heavy price
tag, making it ideal for the budget conscious
home renovator or builder.
StarServe enables you to network your Internet,
telephone, free to air TV and pay TV. So now
everyone can watch what they want, when they
want, where they want.
PDL LexCom Home Network: A new addition
to Clipsal’s offering is the PDL LexCom Home®
Network solution that provides full access to
entertainment, Internet and communication
services throughout the entire home.
®
The system also provides the cabling
infrastructure for a complete 5.1 cinema
surround sound experience, without the
clutter of speaker boxes and cables to trip

and ceiling cavities for a complete streamlined look.
C-Bus® and C-Bus® Wireless: Clipsal’s
C-Bus and C-Bus Wireless is a premium
range of networking and integration products
that is capable of automating virtually anything
electrical around the home.
The entire range of C-Bus Wall Switches,
Touch screens and Power Outlets have been
also been architecturally designed, so they

networking and integration solution that ‘does
it all.’
Start Small and Add On
as You Need It
New homeowners can start with a basic system
and simply upgrade or add to their system, as
their lifestyle needs change in the future.

LIVING TECHNOLOGY
DID YOU KNOW? If, like most
people, you want to have more
than one TV in your new home,
then you can plan for distribution
of your DVD player and Pay TV
decoder so that you can watch
them on all the TVs in your
home, rather than just in the
main entertaining area. This will
give you greater flexibility to
watch what you want, when and
wherever you like!
ARE YOU
DIGITAL READY?
Wouldn’t it be nice to move into your new home
and have perfect picture quality in every room
from day one? If you have the foresight to install
your TV cabling and a high quality digital ready
antenna during the building process, not only
can you enjoy the perfect reception immediately,
you’ll avoid a whole lot of hassle later on.
By installing everything you need during the
building process, when it comes time to move
in, simply plug in your TV and watch your
favourite programs straight away. No mess, no
fuss and no need to organise another contractor
to come in later when you’re already settled.
TIP: If you are considering a wall
mounted plasma or LCD TV then
make sure that your TV outlets
are in the appropriate places
along a powerpoint.
LEADING A HIGH
DEFINITION LIFESTYLE
Australian’s are adopting High Definition
TV screens faster than any other country
in the world. Wall mounting of flat panel
plasma and LCD TVs save valuable space
in small rooms and open plan living areas,
while home cinemas are using the larger
TV screens or data projectors for a truly
sensational viewing experience.
As a homeowner, this means that you’ll need
your AV equipment to be located in a separate
location to the TVs themselves. (You wouldn’t
want to mount a High Definition DVD player on
the wall next to your plasma TV).
Many people will choose to have an
entertainment unit under the main entertaining
area TV that houses all the audio visual
equipment such as the DVD recorder/player,
Pay TV decoder, digital set top box with hard
disk drive, games console and amplifiers for
surround sound systems. The signals from
these AV devices are then sent to the TV via
cabling inside the wall.
Clipsal AV Solutions can distribute high definition
signals from all of your AV devices to every TV
in the home rather than just one TV in the main
entertainment area.
So lay back, relax and watch your high definition
DVD player in your master bedroom, with
perfect picture quality on your high definition TV.
You will also get the added benefit of true stereo
sound delivered to all your TVs!
TIP: Invest in cabling now that will
deliver all of your AV Devices to all
of your TVs.

Smart Benefits
Imagine pressing a ‘welcome home’ button on a
remote control as you pull into your driveway. It
lights your pathway and front porch, your hallway
lights switch on, your air-conditioner begins to
cool your living room and your favourite music
starts playing throughout your house.
That’s a smart home!
And that’s just the beginning. Imagine a
‘goodnight’ button that turns everything off
when you go to bed, and a ‘watch DVD’ button
that activates your home cinema and dims
your lights when you watch a movie. That’s
smart living!
The best news is you can have it. Whether you
are building or want to enhance your existing
home, with Clipsal C-Bus® and C-Bus®
Wireless, anyone can enjoy the benefits of a
smart home. You can even start small and add
to the system as your lifestyle changes.
It’s your home - make it
a smart home, and enjoy
smart living!
Now any home can be a smart home. Your
home is about living. With a Clipsal C-Bus
automation system your house can become
a smart home, providing an enhanced lifestyle
of entertainment, convenience, comfort and
security. Start small and add to the system as
your lifestyle changes.

SMART LIVING
C-Bus® vs C-Bus® Wireless
- choosing the right
technology for your home
it’s that simple. C-Bus Wireless wall switches
talk to each other over RF (radio frequency),
the same way as a garage door opener or car’s
keyless entry.
particular parts of their home, like their living
areas, home theatre, etc. They can start small
and expand the system as they wish.
So, you understand the lifestyle benefits that
C-Bus will bring and you’ve decided to make
your house a smart home. You like the idea
of one-touch control of lighting scenes that
welcome you home, or turn everything off when
you go to bed.
In other words, when you press a button, it
transmits a message that says ‘lounge room
light; turn on’. The lounge room light hears the
radio message and says ‘hey, that’s me. I’ll
turn on’.
Mix and Match
Now all that’s left to decide is whether you
need C-Bus or C-Bus Wireless. So what’s the
difference? With traditional wiring, each light is
directly connected to a light switch. When the
switch is turned on, the circuit is complete. It’s
very simple, but also very inflexible.
72
Set the scene
Explaining C-Bus
Wireless
You can also set up scenes that turn on/off or
dim several lights to various levels from the press
of one button – just the same as regular C-Bus.
Add some C-Bus Wireless Plug Adaptors and
you can dim lamps or appliances as part of
your automation system. C-Bus Wireless wall
switches are available in both the Neo® and
Saturn™ range and the entire system can be
operated by remote control.
C-Bus Wireless uses traditional mains wiring.
You simply replace your existing light switches
with the new C-Bus Wireless wall switches -
Because C-Bus Wireless uses traditional wiring,
it is the perfect upgrade for an existing home. It is
also great for people who only want to automate
EC 2008
clipsal.com
Because C-Bus and C-Bus Wireless use the
same technology, you can also create a hybrid
system by simply adding a C-Bus Wireless
Network Gateway. This means you can install
C-Bus Wireless into an existing house and still
have DLT™ switches and touch screens in
central areas. Because most of your switches
would be retrofitted with C-Bus Wireless, far
less dedicated re-cabling would be required,
and therefore you can expect your system to
cost less.
C-Bus/C-Bus Wireless hybrid systems are also
perfect for home additions. The new part of the
home is installed with C-Bus, while the original
part of the home is retrofitted with C-Bus
Wireless. The whole system works seamlessly
together and the switches look identical.

Now anyone can enjoy the
benefits of a smart home. C-Bus
is completely scalable, meaning
you can start from just one room,
and gradually build up to your
whole house.

SMART OPTIONS
C-Bus® Wireless &
LexCom Home® Control
C-Bus Wireless or LexCom Home Control are
the perfect solution for partial home installations.
The flexibility of these systems means that
they can be expanded at any time, and extra
features can be added quickly and easily as
your needs change.
Step 1 >
Start with the home cinema.
You can experience the convenience of remote
control lighting for under $500. Control your
lamp by remote with the use of a plug adaptor.
Next, add a light switch and control your lights
by remote control too.
Step 2 >
Traditional C-Bus®
Full System Integration
If you want to automate your whole home,
Clipsal recommends traditional C-Bus.
The next step is full system integration of all
your technology.
Step 1 >
Step 1 >
Enjoy the convenience of an ‘All Off’ button
that turns off every light, inside and outside the
home, or a ‘Panic’ button that will instantly turn
on every light in an emergency.
Home Cinema – have the ability to control
everything with just one Touch Screen or
Remote Control.
Step 2 >
Install DLT™ (Dynamic Labelling Technology)
switches and Touch Screens in your living
areas and home cinema. Touch Screens give
you customisable control and extra functionality,
while the digital labels on DLT switches clearly
show what each button does. There are even
clever indicators on light switches to show the
light level you have chosen.
Add the living areas next.
Create a ‘Watch TV’ scene that will adjust the
lighting in your living room just the way you like
it. Create a ‘Dinner Party’ scene that sets the
perfect mood for when you’re entertaining.
One touch of your ‘Welcome Home’ button will
ensure the lights are on in your family room
and kitchen.
Step 3 >
Now do your master bedroom and walk-in robe.
Make life easier by controlling your bed lamps
by remote. Use your ‘Goodnight’ button to turn
off bedroom and living area lights with one
touch – this is the favourite feature of existing
C-Bus users.
Step 4 >
Step 3 >
Experience intelligent switches that use ‘logic’ to
enhance your lifestyle. Program your switches
to perform various functions at different times
of the day. For example, have your hallway light
turn on at 80% between 6am and 10pm, then
to 40% during the night. Or have lights that
automatically adjust in brightness according to
ambient light levels, saving you money on power
(globe life is increased by half, simply by running
lights at 95% brightness!). For security, use an
‘Away’ scene that will automatically activate
lights when you are on vacation, making your
home look occupied.
Step 4 >
Use movement sensors in hallways, toilets and
walk-in robes. Lights will only turn on when
needed and won’t be left on, wasting electricity.
Finally look at the other key areas in your home.
Light up your hallway for your kids at night.
Control your patio lights to get the right
atmosphere when entertaining. You can also
add plug adaptors to allow you to control your
spa, water feature or garden lights.
This smart home will only add
between $6 and $8 a week to an
average mortgage*.
*Figure based on a recommended retail price of
$3,500 to $5,000 for C-Bus Wireless products
over 30 years at 7.5% interest variable rate. Not
including installation.
Step 5 >
Enjoy music throughout your entire home. With
C-Bus Multi Room Audio, the same switch
that controls your lights, can also control your
music. There are no bulky hi-fi components or
ugly wall mounted audio controllers. Kids can
even plug in their iPod in their bedroom.
Step 6 >
Integrate your security system with a ‘C-Bus
enabled’ alarm panel. Operate your security
system and turn lights on and off with the press
of one button, or by entering your PIN code into
your keypad.
Step 2 >
Motorised blinds and curtains – have them
go up and down at certain times of the day,
have them close as you press your ‘Goodbye’
button, or open and close automatically
depending on the sunlight levels.
Step 3 >
Air-conditioning – Have a C-Bus thermostat or
integrated control, activated by the ‘Goodbye’,
‘Goodnight’ or ‘Welcome Home’ buttons.
Step 4 >
Garage Door – Trigger your ‘Welcome Home’
scene from your garage door opener, so that
everything in your home is just as you like it
when you walk in.
Step 5 >
Irrigation – Control your sprinklers from your
C-Bus Touch Ccreen. You can include
‘scheduling’, which is ideal for areas observing
water restrictions. It’s even possible to integrate
a weather station so your sprinklers don’t turn
on and waste water if it has rained.
There really is a C-Bus, C-Bus
Wireless or LexCom Home Control
system for any home or budget.
You can add a hard wired C-Bus to
a C-Bus Wireless system and vice
versa – so you can add whatever
you want to your smart home,
whenever it suits you.
Speak to your electrician for a partial home
installation using C-Bus Wireless or LexCom
Home Control, a C-Bus Approved Installer for
a whole home solution, or a C-Bus pointOne
Accredited Integration Professional for a full
system integration.

HOW TO
Now that you’ve worked through the
‘Essential Checklist’ and have some
great ideas on how to make your
electrical installation work for you,
you’ll need to know who to talk to in
order to make it happen.
Your next step depends on how you
have arranged to build or renovate
your home. There are four possible
scenarios.
You may have:
1> contracted a builder,
2> engaged a design professional,
3> taken on the role of owner/builder
or
4> decided to make improvements to
your existing home.
HOW TO MAKE IT HAPPEN
MAKE IT HAPPEN
1>
2>
You’ve contracted
a builder to build
your home
You’ve engaged a
design professional
to design and build
your home
You’ve found your dream home and have
contracted the builder. The builder may already
have a licensed electrical contractor to do their
electrical work. If not, you will need to find a
licensed electrical contractor.
The basic wiring plan
In most cases, the builder will have a standard
electrical plan of your home.
Expanding the wiring
plan to meet your needs
Having worked through the Essential Checklist,
you’ll have ideas on how you want to tailor
your home’s electrical plan.
The next step is to speak to your builder; they
may handle the process in one of four ways.
A design professional will design, and may
supervise the building of your home or
renovation. They’ll talk with you about your
lifestyle and the location of your rooms. They
will provide your licensed electrical contractor
with a plan. The contractor will complete the
wiring installation that best suits your new home
or renovation.
Design professionals
with excellent electrical
knowledge
They’ll discuss the options with you (room by
room), including items you’ve selected from the
‘Essential Checklist’. You may find it useful to
include your licensed electrical contractor in the
discussions. Your licensed electrical contractor
will then draw up the electrical plan based on
your needs and preferences.
1 They might refer you to a licensed electrical
contractor who will walk you through the plan
and tailor it to suit your lifestyle and needs.
Design professionals
with limited electrical
knowledge
2 They might have a selection centre where
you can see lots of different electrical products
and solutions. Ask to go through the Essential
Checklist with the Selection Centre Consultant.
If your design professional is not familiar with
what’s available, ask to get a licensed electrical
contractor involved. This can really save you
time in the long run.
3 They might not encourage changes to
the plan. If you’d like changes, you can
ask to speak to their licensed electrical
contractor to find out the costs of a
tailored plan.
3>
4 They might use Clipspec®, Clipsal’s easy to
use software program (see page 89). Clipspec,
together with a licensed electrical contractor
can easily tailor an electrical plan with everything
you need.
You’re taking on the
challenging role of
owner / builder
So you’ve decided to supervise your building
project yourself. If this is the case you will
need to find a licensed electrical contractor.
Visit clipsal.com and use the installer locator.
All electrical contractors listed here are Clipsal
approved so you know you can trust them.
4>
You’re making some
improvements to your
existing home
If you’ve looked through the ‘Essential Checklist’,
there are probably lots of ways you’d like to
improve your home environment. Approved
Clipsal licensed electrical contractors have their
own copy of the ‘Essential Checklist’, so they’ll
know exactly what you want.
