Mr & Mrs McFarland, Complete Home Automation Case Study

Project size: 4500 sq. feet

Client requirements:

Digital Lighting: C-Bus Digital Lighting integrated fully into three Story new build including front and back gardens.

Aquavision TV: 19” TV installed in Bathroom complete with floating TV remote.

SONOS Multi room Audio: SONOS Multi room system. This system has been prewired to the whole house.  Rooms currently which have SONOS installed are Kitchen, Dining, WC, Lounge, Patio, Master Bedroom, Master En Suite, Dressing Room, Guest Bedroom, En Suite and the Main Bathroom.

CCTV Security System: The system we use is currently the latest on the market.  We network the system for the LAN and it can be viewed anywhere in the world. Also has mobile phone viewer.
Four camera system with Day Night IR cameras. 1Tb DVR.

Alarm system: The alarm system incorporates three LCD keypads. Two which have fob readers, making it easy to enter and exit. There are a number of PIRS. The system is linked to the smoke alarm also.
All this is connected to a TEXT dialler. Whenever a device is activated a text will be sent advising which area/zone has been activated. Once the alarm goes off, the whole digital lighting system will light up as an alert.

HD Distribution: Network of both Cat5e and Cat6e have been installed.  We will progress this in the near future. The next step is to install a HD Matrix Switcher.

Tele/Data network: Due to this build having concrete reinforced steel flooring we have networked every room with both telephone and network points. The whole cabling goes back to the network patch panel for the ease of network connectivity.

TV Distribution: All TV points are wired for Digital Freeview and Free Sat. At this point there are some main screens linked to the CCTV.

Client's testimonial:

Our Architect actually recommended GMS Intelligent Systems to us initially.  We had submitted our drawings to several AV Installers, including GMS. We met with George and both were in agreement that he really did listen to us and he fully understood our design requirements, from the start.

George and I carefully went through all aspects of future proofing our home, bearing in mind our budget. He was very knowledgeable and gave some really sound advice, especially when it came to the most costly part of our project, Digital Lighting. We are truly amazed at the abilities that Digital Lighting offers you in the home.

George installed a number of SONOS zones in our home. All have worked flawlessly. We are thoroughly enjoying the music all over our home. George took time to explain in detail the many features of SONOS, which we have come to love!

My wife and I are delighted we selected George, as we feel he provided the most professional service from start to finish. He always attended site meetings and was very punctual and reliable. More importantly, he delivered the highest standard of finish in all his work and was available any time I called, night or day.

We would seriously recommend GMS to anyone building or renovating their homes who wish to embrace emerging technologies for the future.
