"Smart Home" is a phrase thats been coined in the last decade to describe the adding of automation systems to you home. In the industry however it goes much deeper than this, especially to those of us that install these systems, and as a result we refer to the industry as CI, or Custom Installation.
The reason we prefer CI is because as the name suggests, each installation is custom, designed exactly to meet your needs and add a level of automation to your home that is unprecedented.
Every single system we install can be tailored to meet every need or requirement you have. The only limit is your imagination!
If your reading this section then you probably have already done some research on "Smart Home Technology" and seen some of what different manufacturers like Philips Hue, Lightwave RF, Honeywell and so on have to offer.
What sets us apart from these is that we will automate your entire home from the smallest smart lighting installation, to full house automation including lighting, blinds, heating, media such as tv, cinema rooms, radio and so on into one streamlined package.
No more fumbling through tens of clunky apps, to turn your kitchen cupboard lights blue, then switching to another app to adjust the heating on your Nest thermostat and finally jumping to Spotify to start playing music through your Sonos system.
The beauty of full home automation is taking all these systems, building them in to one custom user interface and tailoring it to you and your needs
The user Interface, or UI, is the face of your Custom Installation. To bring all your smart devices together we use a system called ELAN.
ELAN offer several different interfaces depending on the scope of your project and what you are wanting out of home automation. From simple yet sleek remotes to control your media system to Touch panels installed on the wall as you walk into your room with built in Amazon Alexa voice commands.
We will always suggest the products that we think will suit your requirements the best when we have an initial consultation with you. That way you can be assured that you will get the best experience from your system, without cluttering up your home with unnecessary remotes and screens.
At its most entry level solution, you can use solely your phone to control everything in your home whether you're at home or away.
If the User Interface is the face of your installation then the controller is the brain. It's what enables us to bring all the ancillaries, the lights, the heating, Smart TV, Sky Box, CCTV, Door Intercom or whatever else it may be into one package for you.
It's also the bit of kit that enables us to fully customise the automation in your home. Want the blinds to open at sunrise Monday to Friday but not until 9:30 on a weekend? No problem!
Do you want to make sure the lights are off in the kids bedroom at 7PM every evening? We can do that too, or worried you might leave your Velux windows open and it start to rain? We can close them automatically if rain is forecast.
You can shut down your home at the touch of a button, turn all the TV's off, kill the lights, and shut the blinds just my pressing one button on your touchpad or phone, or even with voice control! The possibilities really are endless!
