Background Information

    Chris Lewis Smart Home were approached by building firm WG Carter and AES electrical contractors on behalf of a couple who were renovating their large Edwardian home.

    The couple met Chris Lewis to outline their request for a whole-house lighting control system that could be operated remotely and be easy to use, with sympathetic accessories.

    From the Client

    “Chris Lewis Smart Home succeeded brilliantly in overcoming challenges of installing modern technology in an Edwardian house and were a pleasure to work with. We would definitely recommend them to others.”


    Project Requirements

    Chris Lewis worked alongside the builders, electricians and interior designers to devise a system that would look completely ‘at home’ in a character property.

    The couple wanted LED lighting, which is notoriously difficult to control, so Chris Lewis tested several fittings, before deciding on a top quality system that provides limitless, hassle-free control of each individual light fitting.

    The Solution

    • PhotonStar Lighting
    • Lutron’s new DALI dimmable LED driver
    • Control pads dotted around the house
    • 78 inch surround-sound TV from Artcoustic in the basement
    • Wi-Fi access and Sonos sound equipment in every room
    • Motorised blinds in the games room
    • Video conferencing in the study
    • Special AV rack in the basement to keep equipment hidden

    Delighted Customers

    The couple were so pleased that they commissioned Chris Lewis Smart Home to install an intruder alarm system and a full AV system throughout the house. The couple have also asked Chris Lewis to install lighting controls and a music system in their pool house.
