Smart home devices have been gaining in popularity in Australia over the last few years, especially after Google Home officially launched Down Under in July 2017 and Amazon Echo devices recently following suit.
Almost two years on, the telco now boasts a total of 15 smart home devices that work with the Hub, including a water leak detector and the usual run of smoke detectors and lights. To keep the Smart Home hub connected, Telstra now has an internet bundle dedicated to all these smarts.
Get connected smartly
Starting today, customers who sign up for this bundle will be able to choose between a Google Home Mini or an Amazon Echo Dot, plus receive a $100 credit to spend on connected devices from Telstra’s online store once they activate their smart home service before April 30.
For anyone interested in smart home connectivity but already own a Google Home or Amazon Echo, there is a $25 per month option which comes with a choice of Telstra’s Smart Home Starter Kits: either an Automation and Energy starter kit or the Watch and Monitor kit.
Sign up to receive daily breaking news, reviews, opinion, analysis, deals and more from the world of tech.

While she's happiest with a camera in her hand, she's also an avid reader and has become a passionate proponent of ereaders, having appeared on Singaporean radio to talk about the convenience of these underrated devices. When she's not testing camera kits or the latest in e-paper tablets, she's discovering the joys and foibles of smart home gizmos. She's also the Australian Managing Editor of Digital Camera World and, if that wasn't enough, she contributes to T3 and Tom's Guide, while also working on two of Future's photography print magazines Down Under.
