Smart Lighting

Lights are an important factor in a home. They set the mood, guide the way, and provide security by exposing the shadows. We can install lighting all throughout the house, giving you total control at all times from a single device.

Timers and motions sensors can do the job automatically so you don’t have to, or you can have pre-set lighting conditions for particular occasions.

Snuggling up to watch a movie? One click of a button and all the lights dim, just like the movies,  ready for the perfect viewing experience.

Home theatre

Speaking of watching a movie, how does your very own home cinema sound?

There was a time when a home theatre was for the uber-rich, but not any longer. As New Zealand’s number one audio visual specialists, we can design and build a home cinema to suit you and your budget.

Crystal clear pictures, immersive surround-sound, and customised lighting make a night at home better than a night out!

And it’s not just for movies.

Watching sport makes you feel like you’re at the match, while hooking up the latest gaming console takes Call of Duty to another level!

Hi-fi systems

The latest state-of-the-art Hi-Fi system is music to the ears, offering a totally unique listening experience.

Now imagine one designed and built exclusively for you.

All those old songs and albums which mean something special to you and you alone are brought to life in ways you’ve never heard them before.

No matter what genre you’re into, music never sounded so good when it’s played through the right equipment.

Multi-room audio visual

One of the great things about having everything connected is the multi-room aspect.

A fully-integrated audio visual entertainment system allows you to have all your equipment in one central location, but still allows each individual room to access it however they want.

This means you can watch a documentary on Netflix in the living room while the kids play music in their bedrooms. This multi-room systems allow everyone to listen to or watch what they want, bringing power, performance, and convenience to your fingertips.
