Moving beyond home cinema installation, we also offer Smart Home solutions that bring you multi-room audio visual systems and complete control of your home. We design, project manage and install some of the most prestigious home automation, audio visual and home entertainment systems in the UK and Europe.
Put simply, a 'Smart Home' is one where the electrical and mechanical services in the house are centrally controlled via a computer processor designed by manufacturers such as Crestron. Your heating, lighting, security and audio visual systems can be fully integrated and controlled by you via a portable touchscreen that allows you to change your room environment and also the music and video that is being played around your home.
Smart Homes can be controlled from another location by either a PC or phone. This allows you peace of mind and the ability to securely log in to check CCTV cameras or adjust lighting and climate control can reassure you that your home is safe and functioning as normal when you are away.
Audio Visual Entertainment
We can subtly integrate your music and video into lounges, reception rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms without unsightly equipment taking over your living space. All of the hardware sources and amplification are discretely hidden away, leaving you to select which room you would like to listen to music or watch a film in from a small touchscreen device. The media you have selected is then remotely distributed from the media server to your current location, offering true multi-room control.
We install Crestron technology to deliver the most comprehensive line of user interfaces for lighting and dimming control, plus the ability for remote monitoring, management and control over standard IP networks. Cresnet low voltage wiring and/or RF control can be used throughout a wide range of system design scenarios, including traditional wiring with local intelligence or distributed, high voltage wiring with centralized and/or distributed intelligence systems.
Each unique lighting control system is designed to cater to the exact requirements of the home owner and system users. Crestron offers the equipment and flexibility of design required for every one-of-a-kind solution. Processors enable manual and automatic controls; turning on exterior lights based on an astronomical clock, presets, such as providing a single button press to turn all lights on, illuminating safe exits in case of emergency and many other lighting functions.
There is no limit to the number or types of devices; the system can grow as needed to accommodate any last minute changes or new additions.
We work with and install the world's premier movie server, the Kaleidescape System. This system stores copies of all your Blu-ray and DVD movies and then conveniently presents your entire collection onscreen in the highest possible quality. The award-winning user interface makes it easy to find the perfect film, or explore your movies and music like never before. Consisting of content storage linked by Ethernet to one or more players, the Kaleidescape System enables you to enjoy your movies at any time, in as many rooms as you choose.
M700 Disc Vault - Housing and automatic import of Blu-ray Discs, DVDs and CDs; Integrated M-Class player
Insert your Blu-ray Discs, DVDs and CDs and the M700 Disc Vault automatically copies them onto your Kaleidescape System. Up to 320 discs can be loaded into the vault making it easy to add great content to your library. Discs in the vault remain organized and easy to find. To retrieve one, simply navigate to the title using the onscreen display, and select Eject Disc.
The presence of a Blu-ray Disc in the vault enables instant playback of the copy on the server by any M-Class player in the system. If a Blu-ray Disc is ejected, the system cannot play the movie until it is reinserted. An M-Class player is integrated into the M700 Disc Vault; the disc vault plays the digital copies of movies and music stored on your Kaleidescape System.
The M700 Disc Vault connects to your home network with an Ethernet cable, and any number of disc vaults can be added to a Kaleidescape System.
