Background Information

    The homeowners of this North Oxford Residence contracted Chris Lewis to design, supply, install and commission an integrated system incorporating systems covering all elements of their home, removing wires and clutter to streamline their lives and give them the peace of mind that they can control everything wherever they are.

    From the Client

    “Having a one touch panel to manage everything, from listening to the radio to answering the door, makes life simple. And the iPhone app provides reassurance that we can check in and do things wherever we are.”

    “The installation has absolutely delivered in terms of banishing clutter and unsightly wiring. Everything has been installed extremely well and the server room is almost clinical! It’s good to know that if something does go awry, the position and layout of the racks make maintenance straightforward and we will be able to plug and play new technologies as we adopt them.”
