Our systems make it very easy to control a huge amount of devices in the home. Home Entertainment systems distribute high definition audio and video around the home, heating and cooling controls ensure the perfect temperature and lighting controls set the mood. Control of all these subsystems is via custom created interfaces - either wall mounted touch panels or iPads - which provide a common theme to each control. There is no need to master different remote controls or switch things on in a certain order. Our systems tightly integrate devices so we get excellent reporting and 100% reliable control.
We install high quality, flexible and future proof multi-room and whole house audio video systems. Our systems enable clients to enjoy any video source (Sky HD, Apple TV etc) anywhere in the home with cutting edge digital music systems allow music throughout. Rooms can operate independently or together for impromptu parties or to ensure you dont miss a thing whilst moving around the home. Our unique designs allow future devices to be quickly and efficiently added at a later date - ensuring an audio video system that the whole family will continue to enjoy for years to come.
All our systems have the option of remote access - allowing home owners to see the status of devices in the home (Is the security system armed? Are the Pool filters running?) as well as providing control from afar. Several of our clients use remote connections to manage the heating of their home, allowing set-points to be raised an hour or two before returning for example. Huge savings can be had be integrating home devices, in addition to aiding convenience.
At Custom Controls we always aim to go above and beyond client expectations. We are still in touch with, and maintaining, systems which we installed over 10 years ago. Our custom installations usually allow us to gain remote access for pro-active monitoring and fault finding which also enables us to make client changes remotely producing a speedy and efficient response to requests. All our systems benefit from 12 months of warranty ensuring complete satisfaction.
We also undertake support work and maintenance for clients who had an original installation by a third party. We can offer this support on a time and materials basis or as part of an agreed maintenance plan.
