HD Home Entertainment

Whole Home Audio, Video, Lighting & Automation
MultiRoom Home Entertainment systems are now an integral and essential factor in residential properties - Whole Home Audio & Video systems integrated with CD, DVD & IPOD servers ensure access to your film and music collection anywhere in the home.


Watch a blockbuster in one of our Custom Home Cinemas where we design the acoustic layout, assist with aesthetic furnishings and commission an environment to immerse the soul through Mood Lighting, HVAC Control , and naturally the best Home Theater Sound and Projector & Screen combinations.


A Multifunctional Entertainment Space

At The Control Box we believe that our Cinema should be flexible enough to allow a multitude of uses - a recreation zone for the kids with a Playstation, a relaxation area for some soothing sounds and controlled lighting and an area to entertain the whole family with the latest Blu-Ray in spectacular comfort - all controlled from one touchpanel or perhaps your Iphone.



Lighting Control Systems

Crestron, Lutron, Rako, Mode

Well planned and creative Lighting is the best way to showcase your home. Scenes can be set and each individual mood can be adjusted and fine tuned until you get the effect you require. Our Crestron and Lutron lighting systems use digital dimmers to recall favourite lighting scenes at the touch of a button or as part of an automated event (like bringing lights on & closing curtains when darkness falls). Digital dimmers save you energy (automatic switching and dimming can save 50% of your energy costs!) and help bulbs to last longer - soft start light dimmers increase lamp life by up to three times.


High End Smart Home Automation - Control Anything Electrical

Home Automation systems enable intuitive and easy control of even the most complicated electrical system. Our systems can learn your favourite settings by analysing most used components and can then replicate these events when you are away from your property allowing you remote access to view the scenes as they play thru from the deckchair in St Kitts! Air conditioning, heating and security can all be brought under the control of a custom designed, easy to use touchpanel or web interface. Any electrical device can be controlled by one of our Crestron or AMX automation controllers - events can even happen automatically without your intervention. Automated systems allow you the freedom to enjoy your property safe in the knowledge that everything is under control - even when you aren't there!


Commercial Audio Video Control Systems & Lighting
We install Audio Visual and Building Management systems such as Crestron, Control 4 and KNX in a variety of commercial environments - Boardrooms, Operating Theaters, ICU Wards, Classrooms, Meeting Rooms and Lecture Theaters all benefit from simple and intuitive one touch control allowing ease of use at every level. Overall control can be maintained at an Ops Centre or Facility Management Suite. For Commercial lighting control we typically specify Lutron, iLight or Crestron systems that are tailored to match exacting needs while leaving a future upgrade and expansion path and we install them everywhere from boardrooms up to whole office blocks and hotels, providing management and energy reporting to facility manager's fingertips.
