Enhance your at-home lifestyle with easy-to-use ‘smart home’ technology from Intelligent Installations.
Based in St Ives, Intelligent Installations is a technically minded company that aims to make all of your technology ‘disappear’, leaving you to enjoy your property as it was meant to be enjoyed. Along with smart home services, Company Director Owen Skinner and his team can install electrical, audio-visual, computer networking and CCTV, with the aim of bringing these separate systems together into an easy-to-use interface or app that enhances your entire domestic or commercial property.
Owen grew up in St Ives, but brings a wide range of experience from around the country to each and every project. He has previously worked in the recording industry in London as a recording engineer, and thanks to this technical background, Intelligent Installations is able to offer customers the complete package when it comes to meeting the needs of modern homes and businesses, including niche audio solutions.
Offering the highest quality products that promise to ensure lasting reliability, and with an emphasis on ease of use for all family members and staff, Intelligent Installations have carried out a multitude of installation projects across the Duchy, ranging from commercial art galleries, night clubs and bars, to high-end domestic properties and small one-bedroom rental flats. “We offer full smart home automation services for our customers,” says Owen, “which usually starts with reliable IT and WiFi throughout, before focusing on multi-room audio and visual solutions.” After that, smart lighting and heating, CCTV and security alarms can all be fitted, before rounding the project off with media and cinema rooms; that is, as Owen says, “for the client that wants it all!”
“All of our systems greatly simplify use and allow you to use every aspect of your property, from remotes and tablets, to in-wall touch panels and smart phones. Where we excel is in hiding the technology and enhancing the look and feel of your home or business, pairing the choice of products available to us with clever lighting design.”
It’s no wonder then that Intelligent Installations is receiving more requests than ever from a range of clients, including a growing number of new-build developers. Especially now, after a year that’s seen us all spend more time at home than ever! The services on offer from Intelligent Installations not only improve their clients’ at-home lifestyle, they also help to future proof them and even ensure a higher resale value. This means that if you’re a home owner, architect or interior designer hoping to enhance and, at the same time, simplify the way your property is used, we highly recommend making Intelligent Installations your first port of call.
