Making complex systems accessible

I was honoured to win an award for ‘Best Installer and also receive Highly Commended for ‘Best Residential Project’ at the Smart Solutions awards 2018. Experiencing the levels of innovation and development of technology is like being a kid in a sweet shop.

The possibilities seem endless and it is impossible to not get excited about how the right technology can make complex systems accessible to even the biggest technophobe. The support and guidance from Ivory Egg throughout the project has been invaluable and, as the building is controlled via a KNX system, I was able to use input modules behind the customers desired switches with Gira solutions used throughout the rest of the project.
