With over 25 years of experience in smart home installation, we have completed countless varied and exciting projects. We are determined to make certain that our projects are well installed, even behind the scenes.
A first-class job
Our brilliant team are very well trained and prepared for their tasks. We ensure that they have the right skills and tools to do nothing less than a first-class job. Above all, we ensure that each part of the smart home installation is completed to our highest standards. We do this by keeping all elements of the project in-house.
Within our team, we have the skills and experience to undertake the entire project. This includes design, project management, install, programming and commissioning, handover and, finally, the ongoing support.
Lots of build and renovation projects take a considerable time, from planning application through to construction and handover. When you work with us, we understand that you want us, as your smart home installation expert, to be on board with you throughout the process. Of course, from the word go, we work very hard to ensure that things run smoothly. Working closely with you and your design and construction team, we therefore hope that we become an invaluable resource.
Award-Winning Smart Home Installation
We are especially proud to have been presented with a CEDIA award for Best Dressed Installation. (This is actually just one of the accolades that we have been presented with over the years.) Of course, this shows we have been installing smart home technology at an extremely high level, for a very long time!
Recently, rather than enter our projects for the awards programs, we have been involved with them as a judge. Our founder, Guy Singleton, has been on the panels of judges for the CEDIA EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) and Americas regions. He has also judged the global awards scheme. Guy is a very passionate advocate of the awards program and of raising industry standards in general. He consequently dedicates hundreds of hours each year to training and standards initiatives.
There is more about Guy’s volunteer work here.

As a team, we like to think that we can therefore add real value to every project, with our huge experience and high skill level. But there are no overblown egos here, just great value engineering by people who really love their work!
