Home Automation design & installation at Blackwood House, where we worked in close collaboration with renowned architect Charlie Luxton. Blackwood House, a stunning architectural marvel, presents us with a unique opportunity to transform it into an intelligent and connected living space that harmoniously blends cutting-edge technology with exquisite design.

The goal was to provide them with a comprehensive and integrated smart home system that would not only offer convenience but also elevate their overall living experience. They desired a seamless and intuitive interface that would empower them to customise and adjust every setting according to their preferences, creating a truly personalised and comfortable environment.

With the touch of a button, they wanted to have the power to transform the ambiance, enhance security measures, regulate the climate, and maintain optimal heating throughout their entire home. It was essential for them to have the ability to effortlessly manage their smart home, simplifying their daily routines and ensuring that their living space catered to their unique lifestyle and needs.


What we did

Working closely with the client, we meticulously crafted a seamless home automation design that addressed every aspect of their needs. Our goal was to ensure that all the integrated features and products operated flawlessly, providing the utmost convenience with just a touch of a button.

One of the key elements we integrated into the design was Lighting Automation. We implemented intelligent lighting control systems that automatically adjusted the lights based on the time of day, occupancy, or desired ambiance. This allowed the homeowners to effortlessly create the perfect lighting scenes for various activities and moods, enhancing both convenience and energy efficiency.

Climate Control was another vital feature we incorporated. Our system provided precise control over heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, allowing the homeowners to easily maintain their desired indoor climate throughout the year. With intuitive interfaces and smart scheduling, they could optimize energy consumption while ensuring their comfort at all times.

To bolster security measures, we integrated Smart CCTV into the home automation setup. Strategically placed cameras with advanced monitoring capabilities provided real-time video surveillance and enhanced security. The homeowners could remotely access the CCTV system through their smartphones or other devices, granting them peace of mind and ensuring a safe living environment.

Keyless Entry & Access Control was a vital component we incorporated into the system. This feature allowed the homeowners to effortlessly enter their property without the need for traditional keys. Through secure and convenient methods such as biometric identification or digital access codes, they could enjoy a seamless entry experience while enhancing the overall security of their home.

To optimise energy efficiency and create a comfortable living environment, we integrated Internorm External Shading. This automated shading system intelligently responded to changing sunlight conditions, adjusting the external blinds or shades accordingly. By effectively managing solar heat gain and glare, the homeowners could enjoy optimal lighting and temperature control while reducing the need for excessive cooling or heating.

A robust Whole House Unifi WiFi network formed the backbone of our home automation system. This comprehensive network provided seamless connectivity throughout the entire property, ensuring reliable and fast internet access in every room. With a strong and stable WiFi connection, the homeowners could enjoy uninterrupted streaming, effortless device connectivity, and smooth home automation operation.

For those who desired a close connection with nature, we integrated Sun Tracking & Weather Station capabilities. This feature enabled the homeowners to track the sun’s path and monitor real-time weather conditions, empowering them to make informed decisions about natural lighting, outdoor activities, and even energy management. By leveraging this data, they could optimise their smart home’s settings and enjoy a deeper connection with their surroundings.

By seamlessly integrating Keyless Entry & Access Control, Internorm External Shading, Whole House Unifi WiFi, and Sun Tracking & Weather Station capabilities, we created a comprehensive home automation solution that perfectly aligned with the client’s needs. The result was a harmonious living experience where convenience, comfort, energy efficiency, and a closer connection to nature seamlessly converged at the touch of a button.
