Lighting Control System in Edwardian Home

    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.

    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.
