Why Choose Us

Why us? 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
  • 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 you 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.

Why Us

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

CEDIA is the international trade organisation for the home technology industry with over 3,500 member companies worldwide. Built upon a strong volunteer foundation, CEDIA provides access to industry-leading education, certification, research and raises consumer awareness. Established in the USA in 1989, CEDIA is the leading global authority in the industry. The Association serves as the go-to home technology source for consumers and professionals alike.

Cornwall Relocation

In June 2020 the head office of the Electric Playground relocated to Cornwall, with the owner returning home.

Operations will be split between both London and Cornwall with projects taken on in both locations. Arrangements have been made so that there will be no reductions in service levels.


Due to our recent relocation we currently do not have a working showroom.

We would be happy to arrange a visit with one of our customers to show you a system in operation.


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.
