Home Automation

As the name suggests home automation is a technology solution that enables electrical or motorised components to be automated within the home or building. Automation also refers to the ability to program and schedule events.

By the nature of how automation works people tend to generalised 'Automation' as all things 'Smart' within the home or building,  items also referred to as the 'Internet of Things'. 

A building developer recently said to us, 'Installing a professional IT network infrastructure within a building is now as important as heat, light and water'.

Everything can be
controlled from
One Place!

With one of our partner companies, such as CEDIA, Control4 and KNX we can create a system where all your devices are connected. We can create actions from triggers for your home, such as blinds, doors, lighting, heating control and entertainment devices (TVs / music) By programming the system to recognise 'triggers' and produce an 'Action' this creates an Automated Home.


What would you like the 'Action' to be? Here some examples of home automation:

  • Blinds / curtains that are programmed to open and close at set times or activated with a grouped command such as 'Lets watch a movie' and several things happen, the TV, Sky box and surround sound system turns on, the lights dim, the curtains close, the favourite streaming service is selected.


  • Lights that come on when entering a room. 

  • Lighting control where rooms are lit combining several circuits at various dimming levels, including lamps.

  • Automatic lighting sequences programmed in 'Away mode' to give that lived in feel when the home is unoccupied.

  • Controlling the Heating in a much more efficient manner, easily managing different areas of the home.

  • Garage doors opening by recognising the car number plate.

  • Lights been activated by some other action such as your car arriving automatically turns on the welcome lighting scene.

  • When an intruder is detected outside we now turn on lights within the building (upstairs) telling the intruder they have been detected.
