Q&A with FPB Trade Member: Smart Installations

Times are changing and they’re changing fast. Today, both home and work spaces come with a host of technology based solutions. To ensure this technology achieves its purpose, you need the skills of home technology professional – such as Smart Installations.

Here are some common questions that a home technology professional is best placed to help you with. Or to put it another way – if you have these questions, Smart Installations are who you should be looking for….

TV

“I need my new super-slim TV mounted on the wall, I want all the wires hidden and one remote control to control everything.”

Smart Installations can advise on screen height, the type of bracket, set up remote and app control of the entertainment devices.

Music

“I have all my music stored on my PC, I stream music from Spotify and Apple Music. How do I unleash this music to every room in the house and have control of the track and volume using my smartphone?” 

This is a bread and butter task for Smart Installations and normally involves no wiring.

Wi-Fi

“I have decent broadband speeds but the signal is not reaching everywhere in the house. I’ve tried those plug in extenders but the internet is slower now.”

Time to call Smart Installations. We will provide secure, far reaching wireless access points to create one big wireless cloud in your home.

Security

“I’ve got an alarm system but I would have no idea if it’s going off when I’m at work. I’d also like to see what’s happening at home via a camera I can view on my tablet.” 

Smart Installations can set up notifications from your alarm system and install and setup cameras around your property, viewable from anywhere in the world.

Mood Lighting

“I’d like something different from the boring downlights and pendant fittings. I want colour changing LED lighting with control using my smartphone.”

Smart Installations can install and setup mood lighting in one room or your whole home. It can even be combined with your music and TV setup for different room scenes.

Motorised Curtains and Blinds

“I’m fed up with tangled cords and also want the blinds and curtains to close at the same time in the evenings for privacy and security.”

Smart Installations will measure, provide fabric samples and install your automated window treatments.

Future Ready Home

“I’m building my new home for today and for the future. How can I ensure I’m putting in the right cabling, in all the right places?”
In this scenario it’s best to get Smart Installations involved at the early stages of your project. We can work with your architect, lighting and interior designers to ensure that your ‘Grand Design’ is built to last.
