Case study coming soon…

"Derek from DesignerAV really delivered the goods for us, installing a comprehensive home automation solution covering 8 different zones. Naturally it’s built with Control4 at the heart of it all and uses high quality equipment to deliver sound, video, lighting, security and more. Derek’s workmanship and attention to detail have been exceptional, starting with the basics of running over 2 km of wiring neatly through the house into the central rack during our ground up renovation, then assembling everything in the rack so all equipment looks like it was designed to be there, through to the programming required to integrate all equipment and services to Control4. We especially love the totally invisible Stealth Research speakers recommended by Derek in the living room and lounge. These make for a fun party game – can you find where all the speakers are in the room? Derek’s knowledge is extensive and we have continued to call on him as we’ve added to the brief with additional projects including: - Integrated control of our drive and pedestrian gates including the Control4 Door station. - An 8TB NAS upgrade for media and network storage. - A new pool and patio build that added a new zone with speakers, control of all lighting, a Wi-Fi access point and Control4 integration to the pool/spa pumps and heaters. - Control4 integration with our garden reticulation controller. - Guidance on setting up Amazon Alexa for voice control of many Control4 tasks like turning on the pool area lighting or playing a favourite playlist. Derek is about to deliver on our next project, to install security cameras and record the video content to our NAS storage. We thoroughly recommend Derek from DesignerAV for any home automation or technology requirement.”
