About Us

ihas (Innovative Home Automation Systems) is a company in Perth, Western Australia specialising in Home Automation solutions for the Australian market.

We have been active in the IT industry for several years, and also operate a VoIP provider with PSTN interconnect capabilities. We started investigating LinuxMCE for our own use in 2007 and when we realised that working setups were something we could sell, we formed ihas and began building and selling LinuxMCE solutions.

Together our staff have over 30 years' experience in the IT industry, most of that with Linux.

Our Hardware

We have a number of clients 'out there' using LinuxMCE in their homes and businesses.

All our systems are built using quality hardware which we have tested in operation in our own workshop. If we can't make it work, it doesn't get used.

Let's have a look at a couple of the systems we've installed. These are both home customers,
