Smarter LivingThe Consultation Process

To begin the consultation process we meet in Smarter Living to discuss your ideas & where we can contribute to or build on them.

We will develop a Concept Proposal in which we give you a number of options with differing levels of performance / budget.

Thereafter we will draft a detailed specification outlining the agreed system and scope of the works.



Project Management

We prepare AutoCAD plans in conjunction with your architect/engineer/interior designers. Every aspect of our work is incorporated into the plans so that by the time the scheme is agreed no detail will have been overlooked.

Your electrician is supplied with all necessary plans, schedules & cables and we are in constant contact with them throughout the first fix to ensure their job is made easy and the system structure is properly in place.

Prior to second fix installation we certify all cabling in conjunction with the electrician in order to catch any potential problems before the builder begins to ‘close up’.




At the appropriate stage of the build our team of dedicated engineers begin installing your equipment. We work in tandem with your builder to ensure that this process runs as smoothly as possible.

By the time the decorators are finishing we are commissioning your system and ensuring everything is working as it should be. When you move in we will have everything up and running so all you will need is a simple tutorial to make you aware of the all of the features at your disposal.

Once you are settled in we will return and explore any ways we might refine the system for you.




We are always at the end of the phone should you require any assistance and in addition we offer a range of
maintenance agreements.

The area of custom installation is always advancing. Accordingly we will offer you upgrades for your system as they become available.
