The homeowners of this luxurious and modern North Buckinghamshire new-build contracted Chris Lewis to transform their brand new property into the ultimate family living space. The owners were looking for us to design, install, and integrate a complete network of smart home technology. Included in the brief was audio-visual systems, lighting, temperature control, security and fire protection devices.
Due to the large-scale size of the property, the homeowner required an intuitive centralised control hub to take command over the entire home from a single device. Consequently, the system had to fully integrate with current technology on the market while having the capability to easily adapt and integrate with future upgrades.
“I walk around my home now with a real sense of pride. I love people coming in and showing them what the house does. It really does feel like home, and it has done from the moment we moved in.”
“Chris Lewis understood what I wanted to achieve. The team listened very closely to what I wanted to do and then advised me on the best options. That for me was the buying decision because I had great confidence from the outset that the sales director took on board what I wanted and then fed back to me his own idea, without trying the hard sell.”
The Chris Lewis engineers installed a bespoke, full-suite of smart systems that complimented the stunning home's aesthetic, bringing the clients’ dream vision to life. Everything from the impressive home cinema to the acutely tailored Lutron lighting control was designed to be integrated via the Control4 centralised system.
This resulted in extremely intuitive and convenient touch control, linking the devices together and ensuring the system was accessible for the whole family. We also set up external smart Hikvision Surveillance Cameras and a Texecom Intruder Alarm system, protecting the property around the clock.
As the homeowner is a frequent traveller, this added an extra layer of assurance, enabling him to both monitor and control the home remotely and on the go - much to the clients’ satisfaction.
With a stock kept on the premises, the client required a reliable integrated fire and security system that would ensure the protection of their assets, whilst making the store as difficult to target. This would incorporate an intruder alarm, a conventional fire alarm system and a IP CCTV system.
The site wanted to improve their entertainment facilities and create an entertainment room which could be used for a variety of purposes. They needed a versatile dual-purpose room in which media could be enjoyed either on a large high definition TV or on a cinema screen with a projector.
At the Jaguar Land Rover Handover Centre it was our brief was to install a Meridian theatre which incorporated the company’s flagship loudspeakers, to integrate audio and visual, featuring dramatic light shows and 3D visualisation in the ‘unveil’ area where a customer’s car is revealed to them.
