Smart Home Cinema Projects

The Electric Playground was formed in June 2014 by two colleagues looking to bring a sense of enjoyment back to the home technology industry.

We believe that home technology should be about:

  • Simplifying your life
  • Extending your leisure time
  • Saving energy
  • Saving money, and
  • Making your home a little more secure

It should never be just about increasing the value of your home.

It’s our ethos to make home technologies work for your rather than you work for it. To ensure this we only design and install reliable, easy to use systems, using quality equipment from trusted brands that we know work well together.

We say ‘If we wouldn’t install it in our own homes then we won’t install it in yours’.

Infact, we actively turn down work where we feel we can’t uphold this value. We believe it’s not fair for our existing and future customers to lose out because our resources are taken up by bad installs.

We always want to ensure that you are our number one priority. For this reason we only take on a limited number of projects at a time and so we’ll never be over stretched and you’ll always get a familiar face and a personal touch.

We’re members of CEDIA, the Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association.

The Electric Playground is fully insured under Employer’s & Public Liability insurance up to the value of £10,000,000 and Professional Indemnity up to the value of £500,000.
