Integrating Control Systems into the Home
On projects where several sub systems are installed, it can make a lot of sense to install a control system allowing users to integrate of all of these systems with one controller (such as an iPad).
Integrating Apple Devices
A typical way of communicating with a control system would be with an Apple device. We can give our clients iPhone control, iPad control and even iTouch control of their homes.
Control System Installation In London and Around the UK
We have installed control systems including Crestron, Control4 and Savant in apartments and houses all over London and the UK, including projects in One Hyde Park, Knightsbridge, Chelsea, Kensington, Mayfair, Notting Hill, South Kensington, Fulham, Regents Park, St Johns Wood and home counties including Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Sussex and Buckinghamshire.
Control System Manufacturers We Use and Recommend
For control systems we generally use Control4 and Crestron. We have also been using Savant since the end of 2011. Control4 is a great product, it is reliable, affordable and has a good range of compatible systems that work with it. For most residential projects, Control4 is perfectly adequate to integrate all sub systems and give end users easy control.
Crestron is a highly engineered product that will do things that no other systems can do and is completely flexible on programming. It comes with a big price tag, but if the project is complex it is often the only solution.
Savant is relatively new and has a great interface. It uses Apple technology and gives end users the feel that their home is being controlled by Apple.
Control System Consultancy
There are a lot of systems out there, some better than others, and some more expensive than others. We are happy to look at any project worldwide to advise on what control system would be best for a particular project taking all factors into account.
