Client Requirements

Michael and Claire McDaid approached GMS Intelligent Systems following a referral from a friend. They were very interested in a multiroom audio system and appeared set on a RUSSOUND Audio System.  After meeting the client, we designed a system to meet their needs and future proof their home.

SONOS Multi room Audio

SONOS Multi room system. This system has been pre-wired 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 Testimonial

Myself and Claire had done a lot of research into Multiroom Audio Systems prior to meeting George at GMS Intelligent Systems. We were almost decided upon a RUSSOUND Audio System. A good friend advised us to meet with George at his home, following a discussion he had with George at a Trade Show. Further to us seeing all the GMS Intelligent Systems we were blown away by how simple the systems were to operate! We then had George design the layout of structured cabling required to future-proof our home. We followed this up with a Home Cinema System, 6 rooms of SONOS Audio and telephone networking throughout our house.

George installed a HD switcher to allow us to connect to PC in our four main reception rooms. We use this for viewing our DVD films, our family photographs, surf the net and lots more. He also installed the ‘ONE TOUCH’ System into our Kitchen. From here we can view our CCTV, select and control our SONOS songs, watch TV, update our Facebook, check emails and much, much more! This is an amazing piece of kit which amalgamates all the systems together.

From start to finish George and his team were absolute professionals. They were very knowledgeable and always had the answers to our questions. We were more than happy with their level of service before, during and after the work was carried out. It was a pleasure dealing with them and we would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
