Home Technology: The what, why, where, how and current trends.
Smartcomm offers a full audio visual and home automation design, installation and support service. Here Guy Murray, our Smartcomm Home Automation Specialist, shares how home technology can improve our homes and what the current trends are.
“Every home we work on, requires detailed thinking and extreme care. When we present our concept design of all areas, we prepare 3D-models. When planning layouts, we work hard to ensure the integrity of the interior design is maintained or even enhanced. We look at delivering a flow that allows the family to transition seamlessly between downtime, work and play.
Millions have switched to a new working model and we see this impacting client briefs for home working. Now our projects encompass the latest technologies for wider collaboration with colleagues and clients. These include unified communications, incorporating Microsoft Teams and Zoom, plus stable Wi-Fi distribution and Network security. This makes working from home more secure and delivers the professional experience, look, and feel our clients expect.
Converting a garage or a spare room into a stunning home cinema or media room is very popular and perfect for home entertainment.
We have seen vast evolution in home automation systems over the last 20 years we have been in business. This has allowed us to offer a greater depth of personalisation with a wider range of intelligent functionality, via user-friendly devices such as voice control, iPads, phones, and touch-panels. We are skilled in taking technically advanced systems and turning them into easy, intuitive, adaptable solutions for day-to-day life. From security features, intelligent shading, sound zoning, scene setting, and holiday mode, each home automation solution is uniquely developed and programmed to the client’s needs.
Sustainability is another key trend; and we look at way’s technology can help such as intelligent lighting which turns itself off, and blinds and curtains that open and close automatically to control the temperature within the home, thus reducing energy usage.
At the moment we are seeing minimal design to finishes. Less is more when selecting high quality finishes such as simple, sleek face plates for wall panels.
We are known for transforming tired rooms into spectacular spaces, though what really sets us apart from other suppliers, is our breadth of service and our stringent quality assurance system. We offer the whole range, from design, supply, project management and installation to follow on service and support. Another trend we see is one of bespoke solutions. We are manufacturer agnostic, choosing only the best solutions for our clients. We use our programming skills to make the systems work seamlessly together with an intuitive, easy to use interface, to create the perfect tailored solution for our clients. We use our purchasing power to generate savings for them too.
We pride ourselves on delivering systems and solutions for a wide range of budgets, which complement, and are sympathetic to, the lifestyles of our clients and the fabric of their homes.”
