Smart Home Automation

A smart home automation system is the first step in creating your perfect smart home environment.

You’ve got the electronics; the lighting; the security; the heating controls; the music player; the home cinema… but if you’re not careful, you’ll also be wading through a sea of remote controls, wires and devices.

That’s why at The Electric Playground we offer a bespoke integrated home automation service to bring all the different systems together into one interface, putting you firmly back in control of your smart home.

A well-designed smart-home system will unify all technologies so they work together and deliver functionality and performance considerably greater than the sum of its parts. By using your iPad and iPhone, or custom in-wall touchscreen devices, you can control all aspects of your home from a central point in the house or from anywhere in the world.

Home Cinema Media Rooms

Having the Electric Playground design and install a dedicated home cinema is the obvious choice for film buffs.

Whether you’re looking to create a state-of-the-art 4k UHD home cinema, a dedicated gaming room or a little bit of everything in a multi purpose family media room to keep everyone happy, we can help you design the ultimate entertainment room.

Perhaps you want a projector to drop down from the ceiling at the push of a button, a TV hidden behind some artwork that reveals itself when needed, invisible speakers or cinema seats? Whatever your unique needs, our bespoke service lets you create the home cinema of your dreams.

Multi Room Audio Systems

At The Electric Playground our designers and installers will create a true multiroom audio system which allows you to stream music throughout your entire home from multiple sources.

Our integrated audio and speaker systems can be setup as single or multiple zones and the use of ‘scenes’ meaning you can easily control where your music is played.

Play your lazy Sunday morning playlist in the master bedroom or stream your party playlist throughout the whole of your downstairs during an evening with friends.

Music quality and audio coverage can be tailored to the requirement of each room individually to ensure you enjoy high fidelity audio evenly throughout any space.

Lighting Control

Smart lighting control systems make lighting an even more valuable part of our lives through intelligent automation which improves, security, ease of use and integration with other services in your property.

The latest lighting technologies can contribute in the design of your interiors, help you make the best of natural light and save you money on energy bills.

Regardless of whether you are looking to undertake a whole house lighting design and automation project or single room lighting design, there is something in the world of lighting for everyone.

Home Data Networks and WiFi

These days, everything runs through your network – from your games console to your washing machine – so it’s vital to put the correct infrastructure in place to cope with demands.

A data network that isn’t up to the job will cause frustration and disappointment, which is why we work tirelessly to ensure your network can cope with anything you throw at it, now and for years to come, from streaming music, video on demand and gaming, to energy management, home health and more.

Heating and AC Control, Automated Blinds and Curtains

With a smart thermostat, heating can be better controlled and automated to help you save on your heating bill, heating only the rooms you want when you want.

With the ability to activated or deactivated wherever you are in the world 24/7 you have control.

Combining these with blinds and curtains controls programmed to synchronise their movement with the internal temperature (or even outside temperatures) and time of day will lead to a more energy efficient home. 

When connected to other functions in the home they can make your life so much simpler. For example, in a cinema room by a simply touch of a button the lights could be dimmed, the blinds lowered and the screen and speakers come to life to watch your favourite movie.

CCTV and Door Entry

As this is the most important aspect of your home, we work hard to make make sure all of the elements work together to form one integrated experience with your smart home automation system, to make things as stress-free as possible.

Intercoms, CCTV surveillance, gate and door access can all work as individual systems, but by combining these with the intelligence of a smart home system, a higher standard of home security and monitoring can be achieved. We can trigger notifications, whole-home scenes and more, in providing a 24/7 service that offers the utmost protection.
