The foundation of any great smart home, audio or cinema system is expert design.  

We sit down with you & your construction team in Thailand to understand your specific smart home requirements & preferences.  

Our certified engineers then design and plan your installation in detail, with quality documentation, drawings and project management to ensure that your installation delivers the expected result on time & in budget.

Systems Design Process

Whether you are looking for Cinema, Audio or Lighting our design process is identical.

First we sit down with you or your representatives listen to and understand your wishes.

Then we translate that into requirements for example with multi room audio for SONOS or Nuvo and for Lighting Control that would be Philips Hue, KNX or A-Touch.

A proposal or proposals will be produced by us and sent over for your review.  This is your chance to add rooms to the system, add automation or ask about extra speakers in the gym for example. 

Once you are happy with the proposal we will issue an invoice for the deposit.  Upon payment of the deposit we will produce conceptual plans.

Conceptual Plans

Conceptual plans put together all of the systems and components overlaid onto plans of your home in an easy to read format.  This is for review by key stakeholders such as builders, electricians, architects, project manager as well as the owners.

Autocad Plans

Once the conceptual plans have been agreed on and as build work commences we can issue formal CAD Plans, these are generally used by architects to tell builders precise details, they are technical and hard to read but contain useful information for construction.

Experience

At all stages of construction you will be able to call upon our expertise, often we can help design home networks and wifi systems for our clients and offer friendly advice on electrics, light switches, plugs, Universal Power Supplies and Surge protectors when asked.
