SMART HOME AUTOMATION

Home control systems are the hub of where all the fun happens.  Using different systems such as Savant, Control4 and Crestron, we design bespoke home automation systems for every project.  We believe that for a home control system to work well it must be simple and intuitive to use, no matter how complicated it is at the programming stage.  Using your smart phone or tablet, or a remote control you can have everything at your fingertips, from turning the lights off, to dropping the blinds and controlling your door entry system.

Smart Home systems can be used to control all the electrical services in your home. The most commonly integrated functions include: TV, music, lighting, security & CCTV systems, home cinema, curtains & blinds, heating and cooling and door & gate entry.

Our team are expert smart home installers and we have individual team members for design, first fix cabling, second fix equipment installation, programming and support post-installation.

LIGHTING DESIGN & CONTROL

We are experts in lighting design and control.  Lighting is one of the most important elements of a build project; setting scenes, highlighting artwork and creating an ambience will make a project look exceptional. With today’s move to open plan living, lighting design can be used to create zones and break up space. A balance between the natural light that comes into a room at different points during the day with the artificial light can be set in different scenes so you don’t have to think about how to set the room for the best result.

We have an extensive range of light fittings and unlimited design ideas for you to tap into. Designs can be tailored for discreet lighting in listed properties to ‘showstopper’ pieces and simple setting of entertainment ambience through the use of Lutron lighting control.

HOME CINEMA & MEDIA ROOMS

Our team are experts in home cinema design and installation.  Each project starts with a detailed design of your room. This ensures the surround sound speakers are positioned correctly, that the seating position and projector specification is correct for the desired size of screen and throw distance. To create a home cinema installation that excels in its individual budget takes planning and several calculations, something we are passionate about at Circle Automation. Find out more about the home cinema design process here.

If a reference level home cinema isn’t what you’re looking for, our entertainment solutions include media rooms where the room often has a dual purpose. Speakers, screens and projectors can all be cleverly hidden away so that when you are not using the system your room can maintain its original purpose.

Parental control is an important element of entertainment systems and our engineers can tailor systems to suit your family; we can disable children’s iPads at certain times during the day and control the aps and devises that they can use through the home control system.

AUTOMATED BLINDS & CURTAINS

Controlling the natural light and even the temperature within a room can be automated through the use of blinds and curtains. We have a range of quality fabrics for you to choose from, from sheer white, to florals and velvet. If you have a specific fabric that you want us to use, that can also be arranged. Once you’ve chosen the style of blind and fabric that you want, we design a control solution to suit your needs.

When a room becomes too warm from natural sunlight the blinds can automatically drop down, or the curtains draw – so you don’t even have to be home to regulate the environment of your home; if the sun is too bright to watch television, use your phone to bring the blinds down. With our automated blind and curtain installation service, dressing your room does not just have to be a visual element, it can also become part of your home automation.

SECURITY

Ensuring your home is secure is vital for peace of mind.  We design and install home security systems that enable you to monitor your home whilst at the office or away on holiday, all through a convenient app on your portable device.  A mix of CCTV cameras, alarms and automated door/gate entry can be designed to cover every aspect of your home.

SONOS, NEST AND SO MUCH MORE

It’s not just giant home cinemas that we work on at Circle Automation.  We also install Sonos systems and Nest thermostatic control.  If you are after a smaller solution that integrates some speakers into your living room, perhaps with a discreet picture frame TV then we have many ideas to tempt you with.

We install Fibaro systems.  Fibaro is a complete solution for the monitoring, management and intelligent automation of living and working environments. Fibaro’s system of modules and sensors allows your home or office to intelligently adapt and respond to the changing environment, effortlessly maximising your comfort, safety and energy efficiency.  The system uses Z-Wave wireless mesh technology and a non-invasive installation procedure to eliminate the need to run new cables – making it retro-fittable into any building, irrespective of the existing cabling architecture

HOME OFFICE

If you need to work from home on a regular basis then ensuring your Home Office is comfortable and functional is probably at the top of your priority list.  We design office solutions to enhance WiFi, integrate video conferencing solution, distribute music and control lighting and window treatments.  Our joiners can help create a desk and cabinet solution that looks amazing but also blends to how you use the space and work, ensuring all your files and items you need to access quickly are right where you want them to be.
